A rain-affected day saw only 26.2 overs bowled in the only County Championship game that started today at the Rose Bowl while we also look at the squads for the 7 games that start tomorrow.
Group 2: Hampshire vs Leicestershire
3rd-placed Hampshire named an unchanged side from their win at Lord’s by 7 wickets while bottom-placed Leicestershire made 2 changes from their home draw against Surrey a fortnight ago with Rishi Patel and Gavin Griffiths coming into the team.
Leicestershire won the toss and decided to field when the action would commence at midday, openers Joe Weatherby and Ian Holland would get the score up to 20 before the former would be caught by Colin Ackermann off the bowling of Chris Wright with Holland and Tom Alsop moving the score onto 53 before play would end for the day just after half 2.
Bonus points: HAM 0, LEI 0
