Live blog: Northamptonshire v Lancashire, Day Four

Live updates from The County Ground, Northampton

Welcome to the live blog for Day Four of Lancashire's LV= Insurance County Championship match away to Northamptonshire.

That latest bout of rain has brought this game to a close with just 6.2 overs bowled today. Both teams take 8 points from the game with Lancashire back on top of the Group 3 table on 101 points, 3 ahead of Yorkshire who we play next Thursday, and 21 points ahead of third-placed Glamorgan.

Thanks for following this blog through all the rain delays. See you on Thursday.

1.53pm, 34.3 overs, rain delay
Lancashire 88-1, Davies 51* Wells 7*
Alex Davies brings up his half century with a cover drive for four off Gareth Berg. His fifty has come off balls with 6 fours and is his 4th fifty of the season.

But three balls later it is raining once more and the players head off the pitch once again.

1.30pm, 28.1 overs
Lancashire 75-1, Davies 45* Wells 0*
Play under way at last with Ben Sanderson resuming the over he had started yesterday before rain ended play. Alex Davies facing.

Much better news from Northampton! There will be an early lunch at 12.30pm and play will start at 1.30pm.

Following the umpires inspection at 11.00am they have decided conditions are not ready for play at present and will return for a further inspection at 12.00pm.

Heavy rain from yesterday has delayed the start at Northampton ahead of this fourth and final day.

It was very wet this morning and the groundstaff have been busy trying to get conditions in the outfield fit for play.

Currently It is dry overhead and the umpires will make an inspection at 11am.
