Northamptonshire have been frustrated by the weather on the opening day of their penultimate LV= County Championship match of the season.

Knowing victory will almost certainly seal promotion to Division One, they were hoping to make early inroads into Kent at the County Ground.

But, having won the toss and put their visitors in, only 17.1 overs of play were possible with Kent having progressed to 60-1 when everyone finally called it a day.
