Play abandoned for the day at soggy Southport

Play abandoned for the day at soggy Southport

Rain prevented any play on the second day of Lancashire’s Specsavers County Championship match with Middlesex at Southport & Birkdale Sports Club.

The umpires made a number of inspections during the day, with the rain relenting for more than an hour at one point, before finally abandoning play at 3pm.

With a better forecast for tomorrow, play will hopefully get under way at 11am with an additional 30 minutes added to the third day and a minimum of 104 overs available.

Lancashire will resume their first innings on 123-4, just 57 runs behind Middlesex, with Shiv Chanderpaul 32 not out and Dane Vilas-who celebrated his 32nd birthday today-24 not out.
