Scorecard

Promotion-chasing Derbyshire had to settle for eight points from their County Championship Division Two clash with Leicestershire after the match was abandoned as a draw without a ball being bowled on the final day at Grace Road.

Persistent rain throughout the night and during the early part of the morning left the outfield saturated, and despite the best efforts of the groundstaff, the game was called off at 12.30pm.

Top-of-the-table Derbyshire were well in command having bowled out Leicestershire for 177 and reached 259 for 5 in their reply, with Dan Redfern left stranded 19 runs short of a third Championship century of the season. Leicestershire picked up four points from the game.
