No play was possible on the first day of the Specsavers County Championship fixture versus Leicestershire at The Fischer County Ground due to rain.

Persistent rain fell throughout the opening morning which forced the players to take an early lunch at 12noon.

Rain continued to fall and with conditions not improving, umpires Michael Gough and Jeff Evans abandoned play for the day shortly after midday.

Derbyshire, who won their opening round fixture versus Middlesex by 101 runs, will hope to get play underway on Day Two as they look to build on the impressive win at The 3aaa County Ground.

Leicestershire, meanwhile, enter the fixture off the back of a high-scoring draw versus Sussex, in which batsman Colin Ackermann top scored with 186.

The hosts will be boosted by the arrival of India fast bowler Varun Arron who is set to make his debut this week.
