Match scorecard

Alviro Petersen and Luke Procter scored unbeaten half-centuries before rain denied Lancashire and Nottinghamshire in the One-Day Cup match at Blackpool.

Harry Gurney got rid of Tom Smith for a 16-ball duck, before Petersen made 73 not out and Procter 63 not out.

The pair's stand of 151 was a new one-day record for any wicket at Blackpool, beating 146 between David Lloyd and Farokh Engineer against Sussex in 1976.

Rain then arrived and play was eventually called off at 16:15 BST.

Notts, who had scored over 400 in their previous two games, would have gone top of their group with a victory.

Both sides are next in action on Wednesday when Lancashire have a home Roses match against Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire travel north to take on Durham.
