Yorkshire and Leicestershire suffered more weather frustration as their fourth Vitality Blast North Group fixture was washed out without a ball bowled at Emerald Headingley.

Heavy rain from early afternoon into the evening meant umpires Rob Bailey and Ian Ramage called the contest off approximately 10 minutes after the scheduled 6.30pm start time, by which time the outfield was covered in puddles.

This was Yorkshire’s second No Result in four matches after last Thursday’s opener here fell foul to the weather. They have won one and lost one of the other two.

Leicestershire, meanwhile, have now had three No Results – this one and against Lancashire (Saturday) and Derbyshire (last Thursday). They remain unbeaten having won their other fixture, against Durham at Headingley on Monday.

Both are back in action on Friday. Yorkshire travel to Durham (6.30pm) when Joe Root will make his final appearance before returning to England duty for the three-match one-day international series against Australia. Leicester travel to Trent Bridge (6pm) to face group leaders Nottinghamshire.

These two sides meet again at Headingley on Sunday in the final round of the Bob Willis four-day Trophy.
