Warwickshire 142 for 4 (White 3-37) trail Northamptonshire 250 (Nair 78, Gay 77, Hannon-Dalby 7-46) by 108 runs – no play on Tuesday due to rain
Northamptonshire’s Division One status hangs by a thread after the third day of their LV=Insurance County Championship visit to Warwickshire was washed out.
Relentless drizzle from a leaden sky left Edgbaston sodden and the match frozen in only its second innings – Warwickshire on 142 for four in reply to 250 – with just one day left.
Northamptonshire’s frustration only increased as, while they watch the drizzle fall in Birmingham, there was play in Canterbury where Kent took advantage by forcing Nottinghamshire to follow on.
With their remaining fixtures coming up against the title contenders Surrey and Essex, the visitors need to deliver something spectacular on the final day against a Warwickshire side which can, if they wish, bat without taking risks in pursuit of bonus points.
