Toss: Lancashire won and elected to bat


Yorkshire secured a place in the semi-finals courtesy of a nail-biting two-wicket victory over their arch-rivals in front of a packed Headingley, who were soaking up the summer sunshine. Lancashire struggled against some tight bowling and excellent fielding as the six-man White Rose attack squeezed the life out of them. Mark Robinson led the way with 3-21 from 10.3 overs as the Red Rose were bowled out for 169 in 53.3 of their allotted 60 overs. England all-rounder Craig White struck twice, while Peter Hartley, who later hit the winning runs, Paul Grayson and Michael Bevan also claimed a wicket apiece. Captain Mike Watkinson’s middle order 55 at least gave the visitors something to bowl at. In reply, Yorkshire inched their way to victory against an attack led by star swing bowler Wasim Akram. They took advantage of a fast outfield, parched by the weather, and a a trio of significant contributions from skipper David Byas (31), Bevan (60 not out) and Ashley Metcalfe (33) kept them ahead to the delight of the home crowd.
