Play abandoned on opening day vs Kent
There was no play on the first day of our LV= Insurance County Championship match against Kent due to rain.
The two captains were ready for the toss at 10.30am when rain first arrived to delay the start.
Subsequent downpours thwarted two attempts by the groundstaff to mop up when the rain briefly relented and a final burst from the heavens at 3.30pm put paid to any prospect of play.
The teams will try again tomorrow with play due to start at 11.00am with a 6.30pm close – weather permitting.
The two squads named are:-
Dane Vilas (c), James Anderson, Tom Bailey, George Balderson, Jack Blatherwick, Josh Bohannon, Steven Croft, Alex Davies, Tom Hartley, Liam Hurt, Keaton Jennings, Danny Lamb, Saqib Mahmood, Matt Parkinson, Luke Wells, Luke Wood
Joe Denly (capt), Jordan Cox, Zak Crawley, Nathan Gilchrist, Fred Klaassen, Heino Kuhn, Jack Leaning, James Logan, Matt Milnes, Harry Podmore, Matt Quinn, Ollie Robinson, Darren Stevens.
