Constant rain forced the FL t20 match between Worcestershire and Derbyshire at New Road to be abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Three of Worcestershire's four home matches in the competition have now been completely washed out.

The county had hoped to play overseas spinners Saeed Ajmal and Shakib Al Hasan together for the first time.

"Financially it is disappointing, even though we are insured," said chief executive David Leatherdale.

"But a bigger disappointment is not being able to put any cricket on.

"We've played good cricket over the last three weeks and, with the two overseas players here, you want to play as much as possible."

Worcestershire are next in North Group action on Sunday when they host Yorkshire (1430 BST).
