The second and final day of Yorkshire’s two-day friendly with Durham at Headingley today was abandoned without a ball bowled due to wet weather.

Umpires Hassan Adnan and Simon Widdup made the decision just before 10am, thus bringing to a close both counties programme of friendly fixtures.

The Vitality County Championship season starts this coming Friday.

There was a full day’s play yesterday, and Yorkshire enjoyed by far the better of it.

Invited to bowl first, they restricted Durham to 235-9 declared from 60 overs at tea. Dan Moriarty claimed three wickets added to two wickets apiece for Matt Milnes and Mickey Edwards.

In reply, Yorkshire closed on 196-2, with Harry Brook unbeaten on 74 off 42 balls and James Wharton 58 not out off 83. George Hill also added 48.
