Rain thwarts counties again

Division One

Points Table

Only 58 overs were possible at Edgbaston on the second day of Warwickshire's match against Surrey. James Anyon and Dougie Brown both took three wickets to leave the visitors on 225 for 9. Both sides need points to secure their first-division status for 2006.

Division Two

Points Table

The match at Grace Road between Leicestershire and Derbyshire ended in an inevitable draw. After rain prevented any possible play yesterday, there were further interruptions to the final day's play, but not enough to prevent Derbyshire being bowled out for 193 to confirm their place at the bottom of Division Two. Stuart Broad took 3 for 46 for Leicestershire.

Murali Kartik took ten wickets to give Lancashire a comfortable victory, and promotion to Division One. Full report here.
