Somerset 424 (Abell 116, Gregory 77, Bess 4-68) and 225 for 6 (Bartlett 88*) drew with Yorkshire 276 (Kohler-Cadmore 100)
Spectators were denied a potentially exciting finish when rain washed out the final day of the LV= Insurance County Championship match between Somerset and Yorkshire at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton.
Somerset were due to resume their second innings on 225 for 6, leading by 373, with George Bartlett unbeaten just 12 short of a century. But the wet weather set in just before 11am and, although a 2.35pm start was planned following an early lunch, with 50 overs still possible, rain returned to frustrate all hopes of getting underway.
Umpires Hassan Adnan and Tom Lungley took the decision to abandon the match at just after 3pm.
It was a disappointing end to a contest the home side had controlled from day two, but which might have seen Yorkshire take up the challenge of a last day run chase on a placid pitch.
Somerset took 15 points from the match and remain second-from-bottom of the First Division table, while Yorkshire's 12 saw them move up to fifth place.
