Phantoms suffer fouth washout

Derbyshire and Lancashire suffered another Twenty20 Cup wash-out when the match at Derby was abandoned without a ball bowled.

The North Division floodlit game was scheduled for 7pm but it started raining two hours before the start and left large pools of water on the covers.

Umpires Robert Bailey and Jeremy Lloyds carried out a brief inspection but it was obvious conditions were totally unfit and with no sign of the rain stopping, they called the game off at 7.40pm.

It brought down a soggy curtain on Derbyshire's home programme in the competition which has been badly hit by the weather.

This was their second match at the County Ground to be washed out and completed a miserable double against Lancashire after Sunday's game at Old Trafford was also rained off.

With Monday night's fixture at Leicester ended by rain, it leaves the Phantoms without a win in the competition going into tomorrow's final match against Yorkshire at Headingley.

The point Lancashire took from tonight's no result leaves them still on course to qualify for the quarter-finals going into their last group game against Leicestershire at Old Trafford.
