Essex 90 for 7 v Warwickshire

The weather dealt another blow to Warwickshire and Essex with play called off at lunch on the second day of their Division One relegation clash in the County Championship at Edgbaston.

Umpires Rob Bailey and Jeff Evans made two inspections before taking the inevitable decision as steady drizzle continued to soak the ground following heavy rain over a 24-hour period.

With nearly half of this game now washed out, there was further bad news for the teams - still the bottom two in Division One - when Hampshire improved their chances of survival by taking maximum bonus points against Yorkshire at Scarborough.

Warwickshire will still be hoping to make up for the time lost since they took seven wickets for 90 on the first morning, but Essex's situation is becoming increasingly bleak with only one more game to play against Durham at Chelmsford.
