Leicestershire 24 for 1 v Derbyshire
Tony Palladino added to his early-season wicket haul for the Division Two leaders, Derbyshire, before rain intervened.
Only 45 minutes' play were possible at Derby, where the action finally got underway at 3.30pm following five inspections. That was time enough for Palladino to add to his 10 wickets from the first two matches of the season when he trapped Leicesterhire's Matthew Boyce lbw in the third over. But the rain returned and play was abandoned for the day at 5.15pm.
Derbyshire went into the match as the early Division Two leaders after victories over Northamptonshire and Glamorgan.
