Cricket news - Rain plays spoilsport across games on third day
David Payne picked a six-fer to help Gloucestershire trounce Middlesex
Left-armer David Payne picked a six-fer to set up Gloucestershire's resounding victory over Middlesex on Day 3 at Lord's. Middlesex began the day on 26 for 3 in their second innings and showed no sign of batting improvement. Despite a fighting fifty from Nick Gubbins, there was no sign of recovery as the Gloucestershire bowlers ran through an abject middle-order. A 76-ball 40 from John Simpson was also insignificant as Middlesex were bowled out for 152. In chase of 90, Gloucestershire lost their top-three, but not before all the work was already done to secure the victory.
The Surrey-Leicestershire game also saw no action on Day 3 in Leicester as rain ruined the entire day's play.
In just the 10 overs that was possible at the Rose Bowl in Southampton after more than two sessions were washed out , Hampshire lost their fourth wicket while being in the midst of a steep climb back against Somerset. Hampshire went from 92 for 3 at stumps on Day 2 to 110 for 4 at stumps on Day 3, still trailing Somerset by 147 runs.
No play was possible on the third day across the three games of the group with rain playing spoilsport.
Going into the final day, Yorkshire trail Kent by 65 runs in Leeds, Lancashire trail Glamorgan by 322 runs in Manchester and Sussex trail Northamptonshire by 181 runs in Northampton after having been bowled out for 106 in their first innings.
Warwickshire vs Worcestershire
There was no play possible on day 3 between Warwickshire and Worcestershire as rain played a spoilsport. The centuries by Michael Burgess and Will Rhodes still highlight this match as Worcestershire trail by 145. With one complete day washed out in this game, getting a result looks highly unlikely.
Day 3 of Nottinghamshire vs Essex was also washed out due to rain on Saturday. Essex who were bowled out for 99 in the first innings trail by 95 runs against Nottinghamshire. Nick Browne who scored 53 in the first innings is unbeaten on 60 and the opener will be looking forward to his century tomorrow. Luke Fletcher who bagged six wickets in the first innings for Notts has been ineffective in the second innings so far..
