No play was possible on the third day at Edgbaston between Warwickshire and Hampshire in Championship Division One.

The hosts remained on 131-3, still 400 behind Hampshire's first-innings total of 531 all out, which featured a superb 204 not out by Adam Wheater.

Persistent rain throughout the morning kept the players off the field.

The afternoon started brighter, but the return of rain during a 15:30 BST pitch inspection led to an early tea called, before play was abandoned for the day.
