Play was abandoned for the second day running at the Seat Unique Stadium in Bristol, with play yet to start in the LV= Insurance County Championship Division Two match between Yorkshire and Gloucestershire.

A wet outfield put paid to yesterday’s opening day – the sun was shining when umpires Paul Pollard and Billy Taylor called things off at 9.45am.

But today, persistent overnight and morning rain meant there was no chance of any play at the Nevil Road venue, with the umpires making their decision at 9.30am.

The forecast for Saturday and Sunday is for dry weather in the South West, and the players and coaches from both sides will hope today’s rain doesn’t do too much damage to the outfield and enable some play to take place.
