Paul Edwards at Lancashire v Somerset 5-0
After starting late in order to give the floodlights time to come on, play has now been interrupted by rain and bad light on a morning to confirm the stereotypical view of the Mancunian climate. Having been asked to bat first, Somerset survived the first 5.5 overs although both Trescothick and Abell played and missed a few times to Tom Bailey and Kyle Jarvis. Bailey is playing his fourth game of the season and his first since the Roses match, when he sustained a side injury. Lancashire have also included the left-arm seamer, Toby Lester, at the expense of Arron Lilley. As I have been writing the rain has stopped and the umpires are having a look. at conditions. We should be back out there very soon.

Freddie Wilde at the Ageas Bowl for Yorkshire 28-1 v Hampshire
The floodlights have been switched on here and Hampshire have an early wicket. Just one delivery after throwing his hands at a wide ball and missing Lees plays another loose shot, this time a drive that he doesn't quite find the middle of the bat and the ball flies low to backward point where Smith takes a sharp catch.
