Hampshire 77 for 3 v Durham
The second day of the County Championship match between leaders Durham and bottom club Hampshire at Chester-le-Street was washed out.
Only 30 overs were possible yesterday, with the visitors reaching 77 for 3, and with more rain forecast it spells frustration for both sides.
Durham, currently seven points clear, have three matches left after this week and their three title rivals have games in hand. Second-placed Lancashire have to play struggling Worcestershire home and away. Hampshire are 50 points adrift of safety and four of their five remaining games are against the title challengers, including Warwickshire home and away.
