Opening day rained off at Bristol

COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP, DIVISION TWO:
Gloucestershire v Northants, Bristol
No play on Tuesday - rain

The opening day between Gloucestershire and Northants was abandoned before lunch because of torrential rain.

When play does get underway in Bristol, the hosts, yet to record a Championship win this season, may hand a home debut to ex-England spinner Richard Dawson.

England's Monty Panesar returns to the Northants squad, and with both Nicky Boje and Rob White out due to injury, batsman Ben Howgego makes his debut.

Stephen Peters takes over the role of captain in the absence of Boje.
