The second day of Leicestershire's County Championship Division Two match against Northants was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

After a few inspections, the umpires decided no play would be possible.

Only 31.2 overs were bowled on Wednesday and Northants will resume on 99-3, with Kyle Coetzer unbeaten on 43.
