No play on Day One at Queen's Park

Monday 4th July 2016
Written by Danny Painter

There was no play on Day One of the Specsavers County Championship match between Derbyshire and Northamptonshire because the umpires deemed the outfield and bowlers’ run-ups at Queen’s Park were unsuitable for play.

Upon the umpires’ arrival and initial inspection, an immediate decision was made that there would be an early lunch at 12.30pm, after which another inspection would be held.

Prior to lunch, however, the umpires held their inspection early and, after consulting with the two Captains and groundstaff, concluded that no play was possible, due to the risk of injury to both sets of players.

The two teams will attempt to begin the game on the morning of Day Two, which is scheduled to begin at 11am on Tuesday 5 July.
