The second day of Leicestershire's County Championship Division Two match against Northants was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
Despite sunny intervals and some hard work by the Grace Road groundstaff, the saturated outfield failed to dry out sufficiently after overnight rain.
After a few inspections, the umpires decided no play would be possible.
Only 31.2 overs were bowled on Wednesday and Northants will resume on 99-3, with Kyle Coetzer unbeaten on 43.
