One-Day Cup programme hit by bad weather

The match between Sussex and Lancashire at Horsham was abandoned just after 13:30 BST

Six of Sunday's seven One-Day Cup games were abandoned because of rain.

The matches between Kent and Essex, Sussex and Lancashire, Leicestershire and Surrey, and Middlesex and Warwickshire were all called off without a ball being bowled.

Nottinghamshire's game with Glamorgan and Yorkshire versus Gloucestershire began on time but were abandoned after prolonged rain began.

However, Derbyshire did beat Somerset in a shortened game.

The 12 sides whose matches were not completed all pick up one point for a no-result.

At Market Warsop, Nottinghamshire reached 83-3 against Glamorgan before the rain arrived, meaning a wasted journey for Welsh fans whose coach had initially taken them to Trent Bridge.external-link

And Gloucestershire reached 5-0 in reply to Yorkshire's 227 before the tie at Scarborough was also washed out.
