Yorkshire’s sixth draw in nine LV= Insurance County Championship matches this season was secured with a fourth day washout against Somerset at Taunton today.
No play was possible following intermittent rain, which started moments before the players were due to take the field at 11am.
When play was abandoned by umpires Hassan Adnan and Tom Lungley at 3.05pm, it confirmed a 12-point haul to move up to fifth in the Division One table, four points clear of Kent in sixth.
Somerset claimed 15 points and remain second bottom and in the relegation zone.
This was Yorkshire’s first fully washed out day of 2020 in either the Championship or the Vitality Blast.
Had play been possible, Somerset were planning to advance their second innings from 225-6, a lead of 373. George Bartlett was 88 not out and chasing a first hundred of the season.
There was a restart planned for 2.35pm with a minimum of 50 overs remaining. But rain returned to put the kibosh on those plans.
Yorkshire are next in action against second-placed Hampshire at Scarborough, starting on Monday.
Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Dom Bess were Yorkshire’s standout performers in the West Country.
Kohler-Cadmore hit 100 in Yorkshire’s first innings, while off-spinner Bess claimed four wickets in the first innings and added three in the second.
