Second XI win on thrilling final day

Second XI win on thrilling final day

Four Arron Lilley wickets and a quick fire Josh Bohannon half century gave Lancashire’s Second XI a thrilling two wicket win on the final day of their Championship match at Northamptonshire.

The home side resumed Day Three still trailing by 12 runs in their second innings, and following two early Toby Lester wickets, Lancashire seized control.

However opener Saif Zaib’s 90, supported by knocks from L Bartier (39) and Ben Claydon (23) gave Northants a lead of over 100.

Regular wickets continued to fall, Lilley (4/57), Lester (3/40) and Liam Hurt (2/57) all claiming scalps as the hosts were bowled out for 200.

Lancashire required 148 from 37 overs to claim a hard-fought victory but openers Karl Brown (18) and George Balderson (5) both fell cheaply attempting to score quickly.

When the Red Rose were reduced to 42-4, a win seemed unlikely. But step forward Bohannon who struck 52 from 53 balls with support from Lilley (19) to take their side to 133-7 and needing 16 runs to win, with just four overs remaining.

Bohannon was dismissed with four runs still required, and two overs left to play, so it was down to Lester to guide his side home, scoring an invaluable 18 not out to secure a nail-biting win with an over to spare.
