Hampshire never threatened to reach their victory target of 415 after resuming on 21 for one, but comfortably reached safety at 304 for 6 before Mike Watkinson, the Lancashire captain, called a halt with three overs remaining.
Middlesex had to fight for a draw against Worcestershire after pushing for victory for much of the day at Lord's.
Needing 251 to win off 49 overs, Middlesex got off to a flying start. Once Mike Gatting was out first ball, wickets fell steadily as Middlesex tried to keep up with the run rate. They eventually reached 242 for 9 with James Hewitt and Phil Tufnell the not-out batsmen.Reuse content
