YORKSHIRE'S game with Durham at Scarborough ended in a rain-affected draw earlier today, but they have dropped to the bottom of Division Two of the LV= Insurance County Championship.

The reason for that is that they have officially been handed their punishments by the Cricket Discipline Commission over their handling of the Azeem Rafiq racism scandal.

They have been fined £400,000, with £300,000 of that suspended for two years, as well as deducted 48 points in the Championship and four for this season's T20 Blast.

On the field, it is unlikely to have a major impact on Yorkshire, as the club were third-bottom of Division Two in red-ball cricket, while they had already been knocked out of the Blast at the group stage.

But that loss of points does drop them below both Gloucestershire and Derbyshire in the Championship standings.

As for the game at Scarborough, there was no play on the final two days, ruining the chance for both captains to make a game of it today, as had been discussed at the close last night.

Durham won the toss and elected to field, and looked to be regretting that decision when Adam Lyth and Fin Bean added 113 for the opening partnership.

Bean was eventually dismissed for 46, but veteran Lyth ploughed on to make 111.

When he was dismissed Yorkshire sat on 212-4, and their strong start to the innings was in danger of fading away when they reduced to 260-7.

But an enterprising 54 at better than a run a ball from Jordan Thompson gave the hosts some momentum, and they ended up on 340 all out.

Thompson made an early breakthrough when Durham batted, but that was the only one to fall, as they reached 106-1 at stumps on the second day.

Yorkshire took seven points from the game, with Durham claiming eight.

The White Rose are not back in Championship action until September, when they host Derbyshire back at Scarborough.

Their next game sees the start of their Royal London One-Day Cup campaign, when they welcome Kent to Scarborough in Group B.
