Yorkshire update

First published in Sport by

The Roses clash between Yorkshire and Lancashire Yorkshire was abandoned as a draw with no play possible on day four at Headingley.

The visitors had been looking to build on their overnight 48-3 – a lead of 130, despite Tim Bresnan’s figures of 3-9.

But miserable conditions in Leeds put paid to that and the County Championship match was abandoned less than 20 minutes after the scheduled start.

Lancashire’s first-innings 325 helped them to 11 points from the Division One fixture, with Yorkshire taking nine.

For both teams it was their third draw in six league games this season.
