Middlesex were frustrated by the weather as rain meant only 21 overs were bowled on the third day of their match against Worcestershire.
Dawid Malan’s unbeaten 107 on day two had taken Middlesex to 195-2 in their second innings, a lead of 260.
But Wednesday’s rain at New Road meant play did not start until 16:45 BST.
England batsman Malan eventually went for 124 and others fell looking for quick runs, as Middlesex closed on 287-6 having stretched their lead to 352.
Nick Gubbins, who resumed on 72, was out for 91 having put on 201 with Malan for the third wicket.
