Persistent rain denied local cricket fans the chance to see Yorkshire finish their t20 clash against Nottinghamshire.

The sides managed 14 overs before play had to be called-off with rain falling heavily and consistently.

Earlier, stand-in Yorkshire skipper Azim Rafeeq won the toss and invited Notts to bat first, a decision that paid-off almost immediately.

Ryan Sidebottom bowled dangerous former Yorkshire batsman Michael Lumb for just two to give the fans something to cheer.

Riki Wessels managed to make 12 before Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc had him caught at mid-wicket by fellow Aussie Phil Jaques.

Adam Voges hit 29, hitting three fours in the process, before he was caught at long on by Joe Root off the bowling of Moin Ashraf from the pavilion end.

Notts’ promising England prospect James Taylor came to the crease with his skipper Chris Read, and the pair looked to be engineering their side into a position to push for a competitive total.

Taylor hit four fours on his way to an unbeaten 41 while Read hit one maximum and one four and was unbeaten on 15 when the heavens opened again.

Notts were sitting pretty on 105-3 with six overs to spare in their innings when the umpires decided that enough was enough, and a disappointed crowd made for the exits.
