No play was possible on the first day of Surrey’s Specsavers County Championship Division One match against Yorkshire at Guildford.
Heavy overnight rain, which continued this morning, left ground staff facing a lengthy mopping-up operation. The rain briefly stopped, and the covers started to come off shortly after umpires Jeremy Lloyds and Tim Robinson had decided there would be no play before lunch.
But the rain returned shortly afterwards and after an early lunch at 12.30pm play was abandoned for the day at 1.10pm.
