|LV= County Championship Division Two, Wantage Road (day one)|
|Northants v Surrey|
|No play possible because of rain|
No play was possible on the opening day of the Championship Division Two game between Northants and Surrey.
Rain throughout the morning kept the players in the pavilion and left water on the outfield at Wantage Road.
Umpires Neil Bainton and Michael Gough made two inspections, but decided the weather then closed in again.
Northants are third in the table after one win and three draws, with Surrey eight points and two places below them, but with a game in hand.
