Like many games around the country, Hove was at the mercy of the elements and bad light as Sussex and Hampshire only managed 38 overs in the day. Sussex were dismissed for 448, with Shane Warne picking up six wickets, before Hampshire reached 70 for 1 when play was abandoned for the day.

Essex were saved by the rain on the final day against Worcestershire at New Road. Worcestershire, seeking promotion, took three Essex wickets on a stop-start day to leave them wobbling on 116 for 4 before the rains fell to frustrate the home side, the match petering into a draw.
