Jones and Lamb lead way for Second XI

Lancashire Second XI made a solid start to their three-day friendly against Yorkshire, with an unbeaten stand of 84 between Rob Jones and Danny Lamb on a rain hit day at Emirates Old Trafford that saw just 30.3 overs bowled.

Opener Jones led the way with the bat and will return to the crease tomorrow 40 not out, while Danny Lamb will resume on 47.

Lancashire were asked to bat for the season opener, after their Roses rivals won the toss on an overcast morning in Manchester.

The home side started brightly, Jones and fellow opener Karl Brown striking a four each, before Brown was dismissed for 4, caught at second slip off the bowling of Ben Coad.

That would prove to be the only wicket of the day as Jones and Lamb made steady progress beyond their 50 partnership, before the latter began to increase the scoring rate ahead of the lunch break.

With the score on 96/1, the rain arrived and an early lunch was taken. There would be no further action on day one, with play abandoned at 4:30pm as the rain continued to fall.
