Rose Bowl

Rain did relegation-threatened Hampshire and Worcestershire no favours at the Rose Bowl, where not a ball was bowled today

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.
