Washout in Worcester

Day one of the LV= County Championship meeting between Division Two promotion rivals Worcestershire and Essex became an early victim of the weather.

Light rain set in early in the morning at New Road and, with heavier downpours predicted for the rest of the day, umpires Jeremy Lloyds and Graham Lloyd abandoned hope of getting started at 2pm.

Worcestershire are looking to secure a third win in succession following back-to-back victories over Kent and Gloucestershire in the last fortnight.
