Play abandoned on day three

Worcestershire hopes of striking back with the ball were frustrated by the weather on day three of the Vitality County Championship encounter with Nottinghamshire at Visit Worcestershire New Road.

Nottinghamshire had scored 234-3 yesterday after dismissing Worcestershire for 80 earlier in the day after a first day wash-out.

Heavy overnight rain left parts of the ground saturated this morning and umpires Nigel Llong and Suri Shanmugam ruled out any play before lunch.

A further inspection was planned for 3pm but another downpour shortly afterward ended hopes of any play.
