Match scorecard

Derbyshire maintained their lead at the top of the Division Two table despite rain being the only winner in the game against Leicestershire at Grace Road.

Umpires Richard Kettleborough and Nigel Llong abandoned the match as a draw before lunch on the final day.

It meant Derbyshire's Dan Redfern was denied the chance of a century, having reached 81 not out in their 259-5.

The bad weather meant only three overs were possible on day one, and the following two days were also truncated.
