Derbyshire and Sussex were frustrated by rain which prevented any play on the opening day of the LV= Insurance County Championship match at Derby.

No play was possible before lunch and after further showers the umpires took the inevitable decision after an inspection at 2.20pm.

Sussex came into the match under a different sort of cloud after they were docked 12 points for receiving a fourth fixed penalty in the season which also resulted in a one game suspension for captain Cheteshwar Pujara.

The penalty has effectively ended their hopes of overhauling Worcestershire to take the second promotion place in Division Two.
