Play abandoned for the day against Surrey

Play abandoned for the day against Surrey

It was a case of 'deja vu all over again' to quote the famous baseball player Yogi Berra after the first day of the Lancashire-Surrey Specsavers County Championship match fell foul to the weather, just like the opening day of the championship season two weeks' ago.

Rain started falling at Emirates Old Trafford about one hour before the start of play and it continued to rain steadily throughout the day with play finally abandoned just before 2.30pm.

With a better forecast for Saturday, we will hopefully get under way tomorrow with the start scheduled for 11am and extended play until 6.30pm or when 104 overs have been bowled.
