Match scorecard

Hampshire and Derbyshire spent a second day watching the rain pour down as play again proved impossible in their Championship game at the Ageas Bowl.

The umpires abandoned hope of making a start just after 1430 BST.

Hampshire, meanwhile, have added Bilal Shafayat to their squad for the game after

The 27-year-old ex-Notts and Northants batsman could make his debut if the rain relents on the two remaining days.

In the whole of last season, Hampshire lost only 46 hours of play to rain and bad light in 16 first-class matches.

This year, they have already lost more than that in four and a half games.
