Division Two leaders Northamptonshire were left frustrated on the third day of their LV= County Championship match against Leicestershire as not a single ball was bowled at Wantage Road.

Rain fell on and off throughout the day meaning that Leicestershire will go into the final day still on 52 without loss, a lead of 53, with openers Will Jefferson and Matthew Boyce on 15 and 36 respectively.

The umpires twice ordered the covers to come off today, but on both occasions the heavens opened once more, leading to them being hastily re-laid.

Eventually, after a further inspection at 3:40, the men in the middle decided enough was enough and the two sides will now try to force a result tomorrow.
