The LV= County Championship Division Two match between Essex and Surrey ended in a draw after rain washed out the final day of play in Chelmsford before a ball could be bowled.

Only 16 overs of play were possible on day three of the weather-affected contest, with the visitors reaching 261 for seven to pass Essex's first-innings total of 228.

However, more heavy downpours left the pitch unplayable on Thursday morning, with the two captains shaking on a draw before play could get under way.

Essex have now drawn four of their opening six matches of the season.
