LVCC: Gloucestershire 58-1 v Derbyshire
Only an hour's play was possible on day two of the county championship at Chesterfield, with rain appearing just before lunch to prevent any play, and place tomorrow's action also in doubt.
Gloucestershire won the toss and, with bonus points in mind, decided to bat first.
Grant Hodnett made his first championship appearance of the season, and looked in good touch, comfortably rotating the strike and confidently coming forward; a wild edge over the slip cordon was his only error but a six over extra cover became the highlight of the morning.
The Shire did lose Kadeer Ali, whose return to the side could only yield one run, as he edged to slip from an Ian Hunter away-swinger.
After being hunched under a marquee, with it's roof steadily gathering water, for two days, it has been a frustrating experience for everyone, and the forecast is not good for the remainder of this match.
