Essex game a washout
» GLOUCESTERSHIRE suffered their third successive Vitality Blast washout at Essex Eagles’ Chelmsford.
Gloucestershire haven’t bowled a ball in their last three trips to Essex in T20 cricket, after similarly rainaffected matches in 2017 and 2018.
2019 was added to that list at 8pm as umpires Neil Bainton and Nick Cook called the game off, without a toss, after persistent rain.
In truth, there never appeared a chance of any play after steady rain throughout most of the afternoon; with more forecast throughout the rest of the evening.
The point means Gloucestershire remain on one win from their opening three fixtures respectively.
Gloucestershire have been unfortunate with the weather so far in the competition with two no results and are next in action today (Thursday), travelling to Glamorgan.
