Match scorecard

Rain prevented any play on the third day between Leicestershire and Gloucestershire at Grace Road.

Umpires Steve Garratt and Nigel Cowley took the decision to abandon play shortly before 12:30 BST.

Gloucestershire are 69-0 in their first innings, replying to a score of 334 all out by the home side.

A draw now seems inevitable unless the two teams agree on declarations to leave Gloucestershire with a second-innings target.
