Brophy and Rashid lead fightback

First published in Sport by

Gerard Brophy and Adil Rashid are batting Yorkshire back into contention against Lancashire at Headingley today.

The pair have added an unbeaten 69 for the seventh wicket to advance their side to 213-6 at lunch on day three.

Lunch was taken 17 minutes early because of light rain.

Brophy went in unbeaten on 56 off 167 balls, and Rashid went in 35 not out from 61.

The White Rose county are still 63 runs behind.

The only wicket to fall in the morning session was that of Tim Bresnan, who had failed to add to his overnight score of 46 when he pulled an Oliver Newby short ball down the throat of Tom Lungley at deep backward square-leg in the third over of the day.
