Surrey’s LV= County Championship Division One clash with Durham was abandoned without a ball bowled after another overnight deluge left the Kia Oval awash.

Umpires Martin Bodenham and Mark Benson called the game off well ahead of today’s planned 11am start time in order to allow Durham’s squad to head off towards Birmingham for their next game against Warwickshire, which begins on Wednesday.

With the covers at the Oval underwater, the outfield sodden and practice wickets flooded, the officials made the only decision they could. This was Surrey’s first total washout at the Oval since the championship clash with Sussex in 2007.
