Croft hits unbeaten century in draw at Loughborough

Lancashire all-rounder Steven Croft hit an unbeaten 148 on the final day as Glen Chapple's side drew with Loughborough.

The visitors resumed on 145/3 after a rain-affected second day and Croft and Dane Vilas started steadily on another overcast day.

Vilas went to his half century and soon kicked on for Lancashire, as he particularly targeted the Loughborough pace attack.

The South Africa batsman was dismissed for 87, caught behind off Rishton and Lancashire took lunch with the score 260/4.

Croft upped the run rate in the afternoon session and was joined by Rob Jones who made a cautious start. The former Lancashire captain brought up his second century in just four days following a ton against Glamorgan with the Red Rose going strongly on 336/4 in the 90th over.

Rob Jones finished unbeaten on 38 as Lancashire posted 369/4 from 102 overs.

Lancashire's opening Specsavers County Championship fixture of the season starts on Friday as Nottinghamshire visit Emirates Old Trafford.
