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.
