With little hope of things brightening up it seems that this match will be consigned to the record books as a draw, despite Derbyshire having the better of the first two days.

Notts fought back on the third day, though, making 313 for six, giving them a lead of 179.

Umpires Graham Lloyd and Patrick Gustard have instructed an early lunch to be taken at 12.30pm and will reassess afterwards.
