Second XI Championship – Three-day game


Desborough Town CC




Day one saw only 23 minutes play before the rain came and day two was abandoned due to overnight rain therefore the third day commenced with us being 11-1 from six overs.

James Wharton made 38 and Matthew Waite 26 but despite four others reaching double figures we limped to 125 all out – there were five wickets for Neal conceding only 32 runs from 13 overs.

Matthew Waite and Jared Warner each struck to reduce Northants to 8-2. Shortly after Zaib, after being struck on the hand, retired but Thurston 28 and Gouldstone 54 not out saw them through to 100-4 when “hands were shaken” with the match ending in a draw.

Northants take 9 points and Yorkshire 6.

Next game is our final T20 day at Marske on Monday 5th August against Durham.

John Virr – 2nd XI Scorer

Day one of the fixture was abandoned after just six overs due to rain. At that stage, Yorkshire were 11 for 1 after winning the toss and electing to bat first.

Day two was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
