Northamptonshire and Gloucestershire had to settle for a draw in their Division Two County Championship match after rain washed out a second consecutive day at The County Ground.

Further wet weather on Wednesday saw umpires Ben Debenham and Michael Gough call the game off before lunch.

Tuesday's play was also abandoned without a ball bowled with Northants 50-5 in their second innings.

Northants take 11 points, while Gloucestershire earned 10.
