Heavy rain and blustery winds ruled out any play on the final day of this Vitality County Championship match between Northamptonshire and Middlesex at Wantage Road, both teams taking away eight points for the draw.

The players took an early lunch but with winds buffeting the covers and dark clouds circling the ground, the umpires called the game off shortly after 1pm.

Northamptonshire take 11 points away from the game and are back at The County Ground on Friday as they welcome Glamorgan for round 3 of the Vitality County Championship
