Only half an hour's play was possible on a rain-ruined first day at Taunton.

But, after Nottinghamshire had won the toss and elected to field in heavily overcast conditions, it was enough for Luke Fletcher to remove both openers.

Arul Suppiah and Marcus Trescothick were both lbw to seaming deliveries as Championship title-chasing Somerset struggled to 20-2 in eight overs.

Without ever being heavy, the rain continued throughout the day before play was abandoned at 17:20 BST.
