Notts Take Four Points From Abandonment

Notts and Durham must settle for four points apiece after their LV County Championship fixture at the riverside was abandoned at the Riverside.

Not a single ball was bowled during four rain-soaked days in the north east and with Somerset likely to take at least nine points from their game against Surrey, the two sides face renewed pressure at the top of the table.

“The result doesn’t do Durham or ourselves any favours and it gives Somerset a chance to close the gap,” said Newell.

“It’s the first time in my tenure that we’ve had a championship game washed out and it has been frustrating for both sets of players.”

Notts haven’t had a championship match abandoned without play since 1987 when their game against Middlesex at Lord’s fell victim to heavy rain.
