No play was possible in the Yorkshire Bank 40 Group C clash between Gloucestershire Gladiators and Middlesex Panthers at Bristol.

Steady drizzle throughout the afternoon frustrated players and spectators alike.

Umpires Jeff Evans and Richard Illingworth gave the weather every chance to improve and the players even took the field for a 10-over game starting at 6pm.

Before a ball could be bowled, however, it was decided the rain was too heavy. By then it was almost dark and a wintry wind was blowing around the County Ground.

Gloucestershire were left with three points from as many games while for Middlesex it was a first point in the competition, having lost their opening fixture against Glamorgan.
