The 2018 season was kept on hold for Warwickshire and Sussex as rain washed out the opening day of their Specsavers County Championship match today.

Edgbaston has not had a dry day this week so the arrival of further steady rain through Thursday night into this morning left the ground in a saturated state.

At a 3pm inspection, umpires Steve O'Shaughnessy and Paul Pollard decided that the outfield would remain too wet for there to be any cricket today.
