Nottinghamshire 127 for 7 v Essex - no result

Persistent rain showers meant Nottinghamshire and Essex had to settle for a point each in Sunday's abandoned Clydesdale Bank 40 clash at Trent Bridge.

Notts were invited to bat first in cloudy conditions and saw Alex Hales bowled by Graham Napier in the third over before rain arrived soon after. The innings resumed with the match reduced to 27 overs a side and Notts then collapsed from 70 for 2 to 127 for 7 in the 23rd over as Ravi Bopara (3 for 27) and Tim Phillips (2 for 21) shared five wickets between them.

Heavy showers returned and although it was announced that Essex would have to chase 74 to win from 10 overs, the bad weather eventually saw the game called off at 6.50pm.

Essex are now equal on 10 points with Group C leaders Somerset Sabres, while Nottinghamshire are back in fourth place having picked up five points from six matches.
