Only four overs of play were possible at a soggy Sophia Gardens on Friday night, after Essex, who were put in by Glamorgan, had reached 30-1.

Despite the heavy rain that fell throughout the day, play began at 6.45pm with hopes of a full 20-over game.

And with the final ball of the fourth over, Graham Wagg dismissed South African Cameron Delport, who was not happy to be given out caught behind for 20.

The weather did relent and after an inspection by the umpires at 8.00pm, they decided to restart at 8.25pm, and play 11 overs per side, but a heavy shower shortly afterwards put paid to any hopes of a resumption.

Both teams gained a point apiece, with Glamorgan remaining in bottom place without a win in the competition this season and Essex in seventh place with two wins from eight.

Eagles return to Chelmsford on Wednesday to host Middlesex in their next match, before the return meeting with Glamorgan two days later.
