Washout at Rose Bowl
Heavy overnight rain and drizzle throughout the day ruined any chance of action in the crucial LV= County Championship clash at the Rose Bowl between the bottom two sides in Division One.
Bad light was also a factor in the match between Hampshire and Worcestershire being abandoned for the day at 5pm without a ball bowled.
Hampshire, bottom of the table and without a win in their first 10 fixtures, renewed hopes of survival by surprise wins over Durham and Warwickshire.
Second-from-bottom Worcestershire are still 21 points above Hampshire but approached this fixture on the back of a heavy defeat by Lancashire.
Captain Dominic Cork was named in the Hampshire squad following a long absence through injury and bereavement, while experienced wicketkeeper Nic Pothas was also available after recovering from appendicitis.
Left-arm spin prospect Danny Briggs also featured in a squad of 13 after recovering from a shoulder injury.
