Hampshire 89 for 1 v Leicestershire - no result
Leicestershire Foxes' Clydesdale Bank 40 clash with Hampshire Royals was abandoned after a series of rain interruptions wrecked all attempts to secure a result. After a delayed start the game was reduced to 38 overs a side but after 5.5 overs of Hampshire's innings, further rain sent the sides off the field.
The hold-up lasted only 10 minutes and Hampshire resumed at 32 for no wicket, with Jimmy Adams making up for lost time by smacking four boundaries in an over off Wayne White. But with the score at 50 without loss after nine overs, rain intervened again and this time the players were off the field for two hours and 50 minutes.
When play finally restarted the game was down to a 17 overs-a-side. James Vince, having hit 31 off 38 balls, skied a catch to midwicket off Jigar Naik but Adams reached his 50 off 41 balls with six fours before the rain returned and forced another stoppage with Hampshire on 89 for 1 off 14 overs.
There was no let-up in the weather and the game was finally abandoned as a 'no result' at 6.40pm, both sides collecting a point each.
