There was no play possible due to rain on the third day of the LV= Insurance County Championship match between title chasers Yorkshire and Warwickshire at Emerald Headingley.

Forecasted rain arrived shortly before 9am and had not stopped when umpires Nigel Llong and Neil Mallender opted to abandon the day at 2.30pm with puddles on the outfield.

This penultimate round Division One fixture is nicely poised with Yorkshire 50 for three chasing 224.

It is a must win for both sides in terms of their ambitions to win the title and maybe even for finishing second for Bob Willis Trophy final qualification.

Heading into the final day, Yorkshire’s key man Gary Ballance is at the crease unbeaten on 21.

Warwickshire would be able to make the strongest case for being favourites to win at this stage, especially on the back of getting England Test batsman Dawid Malan brilliantly caught one-handed by Tim Bresnan at slip off the last ball of day two from Liam Norwell.
