Leaders kept waiting

Sussex were frustrated in their bid to strengthen their position at the top of the LV= County Championship as rain washed out the opening day of their game against Surrey at Arundel.

Morning drizzle ruled out the possibility of making a prompt start and heavy rain set in after the players had taken an early lunch.

Umpires Steve Gale and Michael Gough carried out two further inspections before play was abandoned at 2:45pm.
