No play possible at Cheltenham College on Day Three

No play possible at Cheltenham College on Day Three

No play was possible on the third day of the Specsavers County Championship match between Gloucestershire and Lancashire at Cheltenham College.

Umpires Jeff Evans and Paul Pollard inspected the pitch before the scheduled start and reported some, but not sufficient, improvement in the damp area caused by water seeping under the covers during Monday evening’s storm.

That had led to no play on day two and remained a concern. In any case it was soon raining hard and an early lunch was taken at 12.30pm.

With no let-up in the weather, play was abandoned for the day at 2pm.

Lancashire were due to resume their first innings on 47 for two in reply to Gloucestershire’s 205.
