4.30pm That’s it. Match drawn.

4.26pm If this game does finish in a draw, sixth-placed Yorkshire will be 25 points clear of second-bottom Warwickshire with three games remaining.

Kohler-Cadmore, 34, and Fraine, 18, have shared a key 35 inside 30 overs. Excellent partnership.

4.11pm We’re off for rain. Yorkshire 102-3 in the 64th over.

4.07pm Kohler-Cadmore and Fraine are continuing to frustrate Lancashire. Yorkshire are 102-3 in the 63rd over. We could have a handshake as early as 4.30pm. Kohler-Cadmore 34 and Fraine 18.

3.36pm Up and running after tea. Yorkshire 84-3 in the 54th over, bowled by Parkinson. Unless there’s an early handshake, we will surely get more in than the remaining 31 overs given the amount of spin. Kohler-Cadmore 30 and Fraine 6.

Tea Report Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Will Fraine have boosted Yorkshire’s bid for a vital Roses LV= Insurance County Championship draw at Emirates Old Trafford, the unbroken fourth-wicket pair uniting for 19 overs during the latter stages of the fourth afternoon.

The pair came together with Yorkshire, set a target of 302 in 84 overs, at 67-3 in the 35th.

They have since taken the county to tea at 84-3 from 53. There are a minimum of 31 overs remaining in the match, though more are likely to be bowled given Lancashire have employed three spinners so far, including seamer Tom Bailey bowling an over of part-time offies immediately before tea.

Yorkshire started the afternoon on 30-2 and have lost only opener Fin Bean for 25, caught behind off left-arm spinner Tom Hartley.

Kohler-Cadmore and Fraine have added only 17 runs together, but it is time taken out of the game which is of more importance at presence. They will begin the evening on 29 and six respectively.

Should Yorkshire draw, they will claim 13 points. If other results go as expected, they would be 25 clear of second-bottom Warwickshire with three games to play.

3.10pm – Tea Yorkshire have reached 84-3 after 53 overs. We have a minimum of 31 remaining in the game, though are likely to get more. Kohler-Cadmore 29 and Fraine 6. These two have united for 19 overs.

2.56pm It has long been clear that Yorkshire’s pursuit of 302 in 84 overs was never going to happen. It was going to be about securing the draw. With that in mind, Kohler-Cadmore 27 and Fraine 5 batting for 16 overs and counting has been vitally important. Keep going fellas!

2.36pm Yorkshire 80-3 in the 46th over of a minimum of 84. Kohler-Cadmore 27 and Fraine 4.

2.20pm Parkinson and Hartley, Lancashire’s spinners, have bowled 23 overs in 70 minutes since lunch. They have just made a change, with Bailey coming on for Hartley. Yorkshire 75-3 in the 42nd over. Kohler-Cadmore 25 and Fraine 4.

1.55pm WICKET Bean caught behind off Hartley for 25. Yorkshire 67-3 in the 35th over.

1.11pm Play has just begun after lunch. Yorkshire 30-2 after 19 overs having been set 302 in 84. Parkinson to Bean, who has 13.

Lunch Report Yorkshire have been set a victory target of 302 in a minimum of 84 by Lancashire on day four at Emirates Old Trafford, the county reaching lunch on 30-2 after 19 overs.

Lancashire scored 77 runs in 10 overs before declaring their second innings on 280-5 this morning, Dom Bess and Jonny Tattersall striking.

Spinners Bess finished with 3-84 and Tattersall 2-27, the latter introducing himself into the attack in a successful bid to rectify Yorkshire’s poor over-rate.

Bess bowled Lancashire captain Dane Vilas (28) and Tattersall had George Lavelle caught at mid-on.

Yorkshire then made a cautious start to their second innings, with the pursuit of victory almost certainly not on the agenda for the visitors. A 13-point draw will be Yorkshire’s aim.

But Adam Lyth was the first of two wickets to fall when he was caught behind aiming a drive at Will Williams – 15-1 in the 12th over.

George Hill, playing a similar shot, then edged left-arm spinner Tom Hartley to second slip as the score fell to 26-2 in the 17th.

Fin Bean (13) and Tom Kohler-Cadmore (two) will resume Yorkshire’s bid for safety after lunch.

12.32pm – Lunch Yorkshire, set a target of 302 in a minimum of 84 overs, have reached the break at 30-2 from 19. Bean has 13 and Kohler-Cadmore has two.

12.24pm WICKET Hill caught at second slip by Vilas off Hartley for six. Yorkshire 26-2 in the 17th over.

12.13pm There is man hunt underway for a ball which George Hill has hit under the huge temporary stand here at Old Trafford. Players, stewards all involved. Yorkshire 22-1 after 14 overs in pursuit of 302 in 84.

12.01pm WICKET Lyth caught behind off Williams, 5. Yorkshire 15-1 in the 12th over.

11.42am Yorkshire are 10-0 after seven overs. We are chasing 302 in 84. Lyth four and Bean two.

11.16am Lyth is dropped at short-leg first ball of the innings by Bohannon off Bailey. Sharp chance.

11.07am Lancashire declare at 280-5, setting Yorkshire a target of 302 in a minimum of 84 overs.

10.57am WICKET Lavelle caught at mid-on by Fraine off Tattersall, 1. Lancashire 260-5, a lead of 281.

10.54am WICKET Vilas bowled by Bess, 28. Lancashire 259-4, a lead of 280. Tattersall now in operation from the other end with Yorkshire’s over-rate -1.

10.34am Bess bowling to Vilas and Croft as Lancashire take eight off the first over of the day to move to 211-3, a lead of 232. Coad sharing early bowling duties.

Match Report

Jonny Tattersall

Good morning from Emirates Old Trafford, where it is an overcast but dry start to the day.

We are hoping and expecting that day four will begin on time at 10.30am, when Lancashire will resume on 203-3 in their second innings with a lead of 224.

Yorkshire will have some batting to do today in order to either secure a draw or chase a victory.

The latter is not completely out of the question given the fact that Lancashire desperately need to win this game to keep their Championship title challenge alive so will want, with the threat of rain around, as much time with the ball as possible.

That means they are unlikely to set a target which is out of sight for Yorkshire.

Luke Wells scored a fabulous 124 in only 82 balls yesterday to push Lancashire forwards before bad light ended the day 16 overs early.

There will be a live stream available shortly before we get going at 10.30am. Enjoy the day.
