The weather prevailed at Visit Worcestershire New Road as Nottinghamshire take a draw from their final game of the first block of Vitality County Championship fixtures.

A blistering bowling performance to skittle Worcestershire for 80 - plus a second ton of the season for skipper Haseeb Hameed - placed the Green and Golds in a commanding position with a lead of 154 runs, all within a single day of cricket on day two.

But despite the very best efforts of the New Road grounds staff, who performed miracles to ensure a whole day’s play was possible on Saturday, showers at regular intervals drowned out any possibility of a result being achieved.

Having bowled the hosts out in 31.1 overs, Notts take three bonus points - 11 in total from the draw - to take their league table total to 79 points.

The draw marks the end of the first block of County Championship matches, with attention now turning to the upcoming Vitality Blast campaign, which commences at Trent Bridge this Friday with a Blaze and Notts Outlaws double-header.
