Nottinghamshire's push for victory in their away game against neighbours Derbyshire was held up by rain which prevented any play on day three.

Derbyshire were set to resume on 45-1, still needing another 243 runs to avoid an innings defeat.

But persistent rain and a wet outfield prevented any play before lunch at the 3aaa County Ground.

And umpires Tom Lungley and Neil Mallender took the decision to abandon play just after 15:30 BST.
