Rain prevents play at Ageas Bowl

Heavy rain and a sodden outfield caused a total washout on day three of Hampshire's LV= County Championship clash with Surrey at the Ageas Bowl.

Persistent rain ruined any chances of play in the morning session, and umpires Mark Benson and Russell Evans closed the day's action at 2.15pm after an inspection.

The Division Two contest is now almost certainly heading for a draw, with Surrey yet to bat.

Hampshire remain on 289 for three in their first innings, after James Vince fired an unbeaten 118 on day two, his second century of the season.
