No play was possible in Friday night's NatWest t20 Blast match between Durham and Nottinghamshire at Chester-le-Street due to rain.

No play was possible in Friday night's NatWest t20 Blast match between Durham and Nottinghamshire at Chester-le-Street due to rain.

The abandonment was confirmed at 7.25. Umpires Nigel Cowley and David Millns faced a dilemma on their final inspection at 7.20 as the rain had all but stopped, but as it would have taken at least 30 minutes to remove the sheeting there was insufficient time for a five-over thrash.

Nottinghamshire move on to 12 points in the North Group having won five of their 10 matches this season, while Durham remain two points further back following Friday's wash-out with four wins from 10 games.
