The Leicestershire Foxes Friends Life t20 clash against the Durham Dynamos has been abandoned with just five overs of play possible at a very wet Grace Road in Leicester.

Despite a wet outfield play got under at 17.40 and saw Joshua Cobb smash a 21 ball half century for the Foxes before he was bowled by Ian Blackwell at the end of the 5th over.

With the rain starting to fall as Cobbs left the field the umpires were left with no choice but to take the players off shortly after 18.00.

With heavy rain continuing to fall play was abandoned by the umpires at 19.20 after an inspection of the very wet outfield.

With no play possible both teams are awarded one point.
