Washout holds up Northants

Northamptonshire’s hopes of enhancing their promotion prospects were dented as rain wiped out the third day of the LV= County Championship Division Two match at Colchester.

Essex, 29 points behind second-placed Northants at the start of this encounter with a game in hand, were set to resume on 187 for five, requiring a further 195 to avoid the follow-on.

Yet persistent showers ensured the players were unable to take the field, umpires Nick Cook and Steve Garratt confirming an abandonment at 4:20pm.
