Hampshire make false start

Watch highlights of day one

England batsman Michael Carberry made a six-ball duck for Hampshire on day one of the LV= County Championship season.

Hampshire struggled to 37 for three in a rain-reduced opening to their Division Two match against Worcestershire at the Ageas Bowl.

Rain delayed the toss, which the visitors won, and start until mid-afternoon.

Hampshire lost opener Carberry when he fell lbw at the end of the first over to Chris Russell, who was also responsible for James Vince departing without scoring six overs later.

Between those dismissals, Liam Dawson was bowled for two by Charles Morris.

Carberry's fellow opener Jimmy Adams scored freely to reach 32 not out alongside debutant Will Smith, before the umpires called stumps midway through the ninth over.
