County Championship: Six games washed out on day three

Rain is affecting Saturday’s County Championship fixtures with six matches abandoned without a ball bowled.

Yorkshire against Kent was called off shortly after 11:00 BST and the games at Lancashire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Northants and Nottinghamshire followed.

Play did start at Lord’s between Middlesex and Gloucestershire at 13:10.

Hampshire and Somerset began the third day of their Group Two encounter at The Ageas Bowl at 17:30 BST.

But while Group Two leaders Gloucestershire managed to beat Middlesex by seven wickets, only 9.3 overs were possible in Southampton before bad light brought the close.
