2nd XI: Yorkshire v Lancashire (Day Two)

— 7 July 2015

Lancashire resumed on 233/4 but this was soon 263/9, thanks to the efforts, mainly of Josh Shaw and Matthew Fisher. But exasperation followed as a last-wicket stand added 39 by Gowers and Parkinson and ensured Lancashire claimed maximum batting points.


Yorkshire also claimed maximum bowling points with Matt Fisher finishing with 4/66 and Josh Shaw 3/72. Tom Craddock returned 1/39 in his first game back after a lengthy injury.

Once Lancashire were dismissed, lunch was taken and the heavens opened. A joint agreement between Coaches, Umpires and Groundstaff called play off for the day at this point and we try again tomorrow.

Tomorrow, either each captain forfeits an innings or Yorkshire simply bat for bonus points. Either way, yet another game against the Old Enemy has been effectively ruined by the weather.
