Overnight rain puts paid to Day Two

Day Two of the Specsavers County Championship match between Derbyshire and Northamptonshire at Chesterfield was abandoned without a ball bowled due to overnight rain worsening the already saturated outfield.

The umpires arrived at 9am and were left with no other option than to call the day’s play off, as the bowlers’ run-ups had not improved due to rain showers over Queen’s Park in the night.

The two teams will attempt to begin the game on the morning of Day Three, which is scheduled to begin at 11am on Wednesday 6 July.
