Poor weather in Bristol meant only 26 overs were bowled on day one between Gloucestershire and Derbyshire.

After a delayed 14:00 BST start, Billy Slater (45) and Luis Reece put on 65 for Derbyshire, who lost the toss.

Matt Taylor (2-32) trapped Reece lbw for 13 before bowling Slater two overs later to leave Derbyshire 104-2 at tea.

However, bad light was followed by rain and the umpires abandoned play at 17:15 BST with 70 overs lost in the day.
