Gloucestershire v Surrey, Bristol, 2nd day

Rain denies Pietersen further middle time

Surrey 112 for 3 v Gloucestershire

Kevin Pietersen's bid to get in valuable batting time was frustrated by the rain at Bristol. Pietersen, on a short-term contract with Surrey following his departure from Hampshire, had hoped to get time at the crease ahead of the Ashes in the winter after being left out of England's one-day series against Pakistan.

But not a single ball was bowled on the second day of the County Championship match at Bristol where Surrey had been due to resume the second day on 112 for 3.

Pietersen was left on 40 not out after steady rain fell throughout the morning and umpires Michael Gough and Steve Gale ordered an early lunch before abandoning any prospect of play early in the afternoon.
