Day Three

Trailing by 176 with 8 second innings wickets remaining Yorkshire fought all the way but were unable to prevent a 10 wicket victory for Lancashire shortly after the “extra half hour” had been claimed.

Matthew Revis was 26 not out overnight and despite losing partner, Jonny Tattersall for one, he reached his half century from 93 balls with 5 fours and, at lunch, had added 84 with Harry Duke – lunch 164-3, Revis 67 no out and Duke 49 not out.

Post lunch they extended their partnership to 133 before Duke was caught at second slip for 66 made from 129 balls with 6 fours. Revis posted his century from 191 balls with 11 fours and had made 112 before he was lbw – this led to 247 for 4 becoming 273 for 7 and at tea 278 for 7 – Vagadia 34 not out.

Yorkshire were all out for 320 leaving Lancashire 72 to win from 14 overs – they reached their target from the third ball of the “extra period”.

Day Two

Day two began in a better vein for Yorkshire as Matty Revis had Hurst caught behind to the fifth ball of the day. Jack Blatherwick was caught at mid off by Ben Mike off Ben Cliff for 11 (395-6) and this saw Lancashire reduced to 402-9 as Revis picked up his second and Leech struck twice including the ninth wicket with the final ball of the 110th over to earn maximum bowling bonus points.

Barnard and Shetty added 31 for the last wicket before Mike had the latter caught behind. This left Yorkshire with one over to face before lunch and this didn’t go to plan as James Wharton was caught behind to the fifth ball and lunch was taken.

Will Luxton was lbw for 7 and Revis caught at second slip for 19 as Yorkshire were reduced to 44-3. This became 78-4 as Jonny Tattersall was lbw for 38 from 49 balls. Harry Duke followed shortly after and Mike made only four to leave Yorkshire 91-6.

Yash Vagadia and Dom Leech safely negotiated to the tea interval, 134-6. Vagadia reached his half century from 52 balls with 8 fours and was last out for 74 from 65 balls with a total of 10 fours and 2 sixes – all out for 184, trailing by 249 – Yorkshire were asked to follow on.

Lightning struck twice as Wharton was again dismissed in the first over, adjudged caught behind but Matthew Revis and Will Luxton advanced the score to 73 when Luxton was bowled in the last over of the day leaving Yorkshire still trailing by 176.

Day One

On a cloudy, overcast morning Yorkshire captain, Jonny Tattersall, won the toss and asked Lancashire to bat first.

At lunch our visitors had reached 111 without loss – Singh 57 not out from 87 balls with 5 fours and Dickinson 50 not out from 88 balls with 8 fours.

The afternoon session saw Singh caught behind by Duke from the bowling of Ben Cliff for 59, however Lavelle was unbeaten on 57 at tea and Dickinson had advanced to 109 not out as Lancashire reached 237-1.

Lancashire had bagged their first batting bonus point when Dominic Leech took a stunning reflex catch at short mid wicket to see George Lavelle back to the pavilion for 69 from 112 deliveries with 6 fours and 3 sixes – this gave Jafer Chohan his first Championship wicket.

Danny Lamb joined Dickinson and they added 70 for the third wicket before the former was caught at long leg – his contribution being 4 as Dickinson passed 150 in 231 balls with 16 fours and 4 sixes. He reached 184 before being well caught Matthew Revis at slip from the bowling of Ben Mike.

At the close of play Lancashire had had the better of the day and reached 370-4.
