Match scorecard

Durham were denied the chance to press home their advantage against Somerset as bad weather prevented any play on day three at the Riverside.

The home side were set to resume on 223-4, 300 runs ahead, with opener Keaton Jennings on 105 not out.

Rain during the morning meant that a prompt start was impossible.

And umpires Rob Bailey and Nigel Cowley took the decision to abandon play for the day shortly before 14:45 BST after inspecting conditions in the middle.
