Match scorecard

Hampshire were denied the chance to push for victory over Leicestershire as rain washed out the final day's play of the Division Two clash at Southampton.

But the weather also denied Ned Eckersley the chance to complete his century after ending the third day 99 not out, with Leicestershire 182-5.

That left the visitors still 129 behind but persistent rain resulted in the game being abandoned in mid-afternoon.

Hampshire took 11 points from the fixture and Leicestershire five.
