Match scorecard

Nottinghamshire’s hopes of pushing for a last-day victory over Worcestershire were wrecked by the weather as the County Championship encounter at New Road finished in a rain-ruined draw.

Despite two of the first three days being washed out, Nottinghamshire were strongly placed at 234-3 and leading by 154 runs.

But heavy overnight rain and a steady stream of morning showers dashed any hopes of the players being able to take the field, with umpires Nigel Llong and Suri Shanmugam carrying out a host of inspections before finally calling time on proceedings midway through the afternoon.

Nottinghamshire took 11 points from the draw while Worcestershire picked up nine.
