Derbyshire and Gloucestershire will hope for better weather tomorrow after the third day of the LV County Championship Division Two match at Derby was abandoned without a ball bowled.

High winds overnight had torn part of the covering which allowed water to get under and saturate a small area where the bowlers feet would land.

Despite good drying conditions for much of the day, the umpires decided that one area was still too damp when they held a fourth and final inspection at 3.15pm.
