FLt20 match v Northamptonshire this evening
We have experienced heavy rain over the last 24 hours at Bristol. Thanks to our excellent drainage and hard work by the ground staff, there is no standing water on the ground and with drier weather forecast for this afternoon, we anticipate the match starting on time at 5.30pm. This will, of course, be dependent on what further rain we receive between now and 5.30pm.
We will post updates on our website and match information line (0845 1 288 555) when we have further news.
