Northamptonshire v Nottinghamshire Match abandoned without a ball being bowled
Persistent rain ensured not a single ball was bowled in the Friends Life t20 clash between Northamptonshire Steelbacks and the Nottinghamshire Outlaws at Wantage Road.
It had been raining steadily in Northampton since the afternoon and umpires Nigel Cowley and Steve Garratt officially called off proceedings at 7pm - 10 minutes after play had been due to start.
The Steelbacks, who are bottom of the North Group, travel to Derbyshire tomorrow and have one more chance to finally get a home win when they face the Lancashire Lightning on Tuesday. The Outlaws already have a home quarter-final in the bag having only lost once in this year's competition and they face the Lightning at Old Trafford on Sunday.
