Surrey v Sussex, Guildford, 2nd day August 10, 2010

Weather wrecks Surrey's hopes

Surrey 47 for 0 v Sussex 217

Surrey's hopes of putting County Championship Division Two leaders Sussex under pressure were frustrated by the weather at Guildford. Umpires Steve Garrett and John Steele abandoned the second day's play at 4:15pm because of persistent drizzle.

Heavy morning rain had cleared and play had been due to start at 2:10pm after three inspections, but the rain returned just before the players were about to come out. Surrey will resume tomorrow on 47 for 0 in reply to Sussex's first innings total of 217.
