First published in Sport by

England batsman Joe Root had to be be satisfied with fielding practice as he made his comeback from injury in Yorkshire Seconds' three-day friendly against Lancashire at Northop Hall in North Wales yesterday.

The 23-year-old broke his thumb batting against West Indies in England's one-day international series victory in Antigua seven weeks ago and was forced to miss the ICC World Twenty20.

Yorkshire put Lancashire into bat after winning the toss and the home side reached 201-2 by the close of a rain-hit opening day, with Root not called on to bowl.
