Only 8.4 overs were possible on the second day of Middlesex’s Division Two game against Derbyshire because of heavy rain at Lord’s.

Derbyshire managed to claim the wickets of Martin Andersson and John Simpson in the brief passage of play that was possible after lunch.

Middlesex had moved on to 199-5 from their overnight 176-3 when play was called off at 16:15 BST.

Captain Dawid Malan (66 not out) will resume with James Harris on day three.

Malan needs just a single to bring up 1,000 runs in the County Championship this season.
