Yorkshire coach Ottis Gibson said:

“Over the course of the four days, they dominated it for large parts of the game. We’re happy to walk away with an honourable draw, but it’s been a tough four days for us.
“We just had a little chat in the dressing room, and even though we were dominated we didn’t feel at any stage like we were going to lose the game.
“I’ve said before that our Achilles heel has been our catching. That cost us dearly. We dropped Keaton on two and he got 240. He took advantage and made us pay.
“Brooky has been exceptional all year, and everybody is very excited when Joe comes back to play for us. He’s the best batter in the world for a reason.
“Even though they had 500 on the board or whatever, if you’ve paid your money to sit and watch Joe bat – especially yesterday, the way he played – you felt like you’ve walked away and got your money’s worth.”

5.51pm Match drawn. Players shake hands with Yorkshire 169-6 from 78 overs, seven remaining. Brook 82 and Thompson 7. Yorks 12 points. Well played Lancashire, who take 13.

5.42pm 10 overs remain in the game, Yorkshire are 161-6 from 75. Brook 76 and Thompson 5. Yorks trail by 26, which could yet come into play right at the end.

5.27pm WICKET Bess caught at short-leg off Parkinson, 5. Yorkshire 147-6 after 69.5 overs. 15.1 remaining.

5.02pm Double spin for Lancashire as Wells comes into the attack to join Parkinson. Yorkshire 137-5 after 62 overs. A minimum of 23 remain. Brook 63 and Bess 0.

4.48pm The umpires have just consulted about the light. 130-5 with 26.4 overs remaining.

4.41pm WICKET Duke has been well caught at slip by Wells off Parkinson, 9. Yorkshire 124-5 in the 56th over – 29.1 remain.

4.31pm Brook reaches another fifty, his seventh in eight innings this season – off 90 balls with 6×4s. Excellent. 122-4 in the 54th over. 31 after this to bowl – if the light holds. Floodlights on.

4.05pm Up and running after tea. We’ve had one more over, from Balderson, Yorkshire are 103-4 after 47 with 38 more to survive. Brook 38 and Duke 1.

Tea Report Yorkshire lost three afternoon wickets to leave the Roses LV= Insurance County Championship match very much alive heading into the final session at Headingley.

Jimmy Anderson struck twice in the early stages of the afternoon to leave Yorkshire at 45-3 in their second innings, trailing by 142 with 63.2 overs remaining in the game.

They have since reached tea at 102-4 with a minimum of 39 overs left to face.

Anderson removed England Test team-mates Dawid Malan and Joe Root, the former caught behind for 23 and the latter bowled for four with off and middle stumps out of the ground.

Luke Wood later had opener George Hill caught behind for 26 – 86-4 with 46.2 remaining.

Harry Brook was handed a life on 30 shortly before tea, dropped at square-leg by a diving Wood off Anderson. He will begin the evening on 37 with Harry Duke for company on one.

Anderson currently has figures of 2-17 from 15 overs.

3.40pm – Tea Yorkshire had into the final session of the match on 102-4 from 46 overs, with 39 more to bowl as Lancashire push for victory. Brook 37 and Duke 1.

3.34pm Closing stages of the afternoon as Yorkshire move to 95-4 after 44 overs, 41 remain. Brook 31 and Duke 1.

2.01pm WICKET Root bowled by Anderson, 4. Yorkshire 45-3 in the 22nd over. 63.2 remain.

1.47pm WICKET Malan caught behind off Anderson, 23, in the opening over of the afternoon. It’s 39-2 in the 18th over. Best part of 68 remaining in the game.

Lunch Report Yorkshire were made to follow-on by Lancashire and lost a wicket to the third ball of their second innings during the fourth morning at Headingley. But the draw still looks the most likely result.

Having reached lunch on 39-1 from 17 overs, the hosts still have plenty of work to do to extend their unbeaten LV= Insurance County Championship record in 2022 to five games given there are a minimum of 68 overs still to bowl.

Yorkshire started the day on 356-8 in their first-innings reply to 556-9 declared.

And the innings – for 379 all out – was wrapped up in the opening 8.5 overs of play, with Luke Wood getting Steve Patterson caught in the gully fending at a short ball and Matt Parkinson bowling last man Haris Rauf.

Leg-spinner Parkinson finished with 4-90 from 38.5 overs.

Tom Bailey then struck after three balls of the home second innings when he trapped Adam Lyth lbw pushing forwards – 2-1.

But George Hill and Dawid Malan have ensured no further alarms and will begin the afternoon on 12 and 23 respectively.

1.04pm – Lunch Yorkshire 39-1 after 17 overs. Hill 12, Malan 23. The deficit is 148 with a minimum of 68 overs remaining in the game.

12.29pm No further alarms for Yorkshire in the last 40 minutes or so as they move to 14-1 after 10 overs. Hill and Malan have 5 apiece.

11.52am Lyth gone! He’s been trapped lbw, for 2, three balls into Yorkshire second innings by Bailey. It’s 2-1. Including this, a minimum of 85 overs remain.

11.40am Confirmed. Follow-on enforced.

11.39am Rauf gone! He’s been bowled by Parkinson, 2. Yorkshire 379 all out, and we can only presume Lancashire will enforce the follow-on with 85 overs remaining in the game. The deficit is 187.

11.24am WICKET Patterson caught by Croft coming in from gully following a Wood short ball which was directed at the skipper’s ribs. Yorkshire 374-9, 43 short of the follow-on.

11.12am Floodlights are on at Headingley, where Yorkshire are 372-8 and trailing by 194. Thompson 18 and Patterson 19.

11am Play is about to get underway at Headingley. Yorkshire 356-8. The first target is 61 more to avoid the follow-on.

10.38am There will be a minute’s silence at the start of play in memory of the late former Lancashire all-rounder Andrew Symonds. Both sides will wear black armbands.

Match Report.

Harry Duke.


Good morning from an overcast Headingley, where there has been some overnight rain.

The covers are off now and the players are out there warming up.

Yorkshire will begin the day on 356-8 in their first innings, 210 runs behind and 61 away from avoiding the follow-on.

Our chances of a draw remain good given the pitch conditions and with 12 wickets to play with.

Jordan Thompson and Steve Patterson will resume the battle at the start of play, which will hopefully be 11am.

Just away from here, there was more devastating news which came out of Australian cricket overnight. Andrew Symonds has been killed in a car crash.

Our thoughts go to his family, friends, all in Australian Cricket and those connected with the counties he played for, including Lancashire.

There will be a live stream available once more for today’s action, via the Match Centre Tab at the top of this page.
