Northamptonshire v Derbyshire match abandoned without a ball bowled

The Northamptonshire Steelbacks and Derbyshire Falcons' hopes of kick-starting their Friends Life T20 campaigns were thwarted as persistent rain washed out their match at Wantage Road. Rain began to fall over an hour before the scheduled start of 6.50pm and umpires Richard Illingworth and David Millins called the game off at 7.45.

The Steelbacks, will be looking to lift themselves of the bottom of the North Group when they play the Nottinghamshire Outlaws at Trent Bridge on Saturday. The Falcons, who are second-bottom and like their opponents have only won once in this year's competition, have a home clash against the Leicestershire Foxes to look forward to on Saturday.
