Gloucestershire's Yorkshire Bank 40 clash with Middlesex at Bristol was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain.

Steady drizzle throughout the afternoon frustrated players and spectators alike, with umpires Jeff Evans and Richard Illingworth waiting as long as possible to give the weather every chance to improve.

The players even took the field for a 10-over game starting at 6pm but, before the action commenced, it was decided that the rain was too heavy and the match was ended for good.

Gloucestershire were left with three points from as many Group C games, while for Middlesex it was a first point in the competition, having lost their opening fixture against Glamorgan.
