No play was possible on the opening day of Derbyshire's Championship Division Two game against Kent because of a wet outfield at Chesterfield.

Umpires Stephen Gale and Billy Taylor took the decision following an early lunch and a 12:40 BST inspection.

"There are dangerous areas close to the pitch and it's also wet on the perimeter," Derbyshire cricket advisor Kim Barnett told the club website.external-link
