Rain ruins opening day at Bristol

DAY 1 Close: Surrey 96-1 v Gloucestershire
LIVE ball-by-ball commentary on www.gloscricketradio.co.uk


Only 28 overs were possible on day one of Gloucestershire's county championship match against Surrey at Bristol; a major blow for Glos who need to win the match to bring themselves back into the promotion race.

They won the toss and elected to field, but bowled poorly in favourable conditions. In the absence of Jon Lewis, ruled out with a shin injury, it was Ian Saxelby that took the new ball and he disappointed for the first time.

None of the bowler's opening spells were consistent enough - indeed, Surrey were given a flying start by Jon Batty and Mike Brown. The latter was LBW to James Franklin, a wicket that changed the course of the morning.

The flow of runs stemmed & Steve Kirby worked both batsmen over before bad light & then rain forced the day's abandonment.
