Second XI draw as 13 wickets fall on the final day of Durham clash
Three wickets for Matt Parkinson
Lancashire's Second XI Championship match against Durham at Chester Boughton Hall CC ended drawn despite three Matt Parkinson wickets on the final day.
After resuming 299-5 with a lead of 151 runs, Lancashire were looking to add quick runs before attempting to bowl Durham to secure victory.
Stephen Parry (23) and Saqib Mahmood (17) were the only lower order batsman to reach double figures as Lancashire were all out for 342.
With around 60 overs remaining in the day, Durham trailed by 194 runs and Lancashire were buoyant when Toby Lester (1-39) dismissed Cameron Steel LBW without scoring in the first over.
When Ed Moulton dismissed Ross Greenwell, the visitors were 18-2 with the Red Rose looking to take control, however a 60 partnership for the third wicket steadied the ship.
Leg-spinner Parkinson gave his side fresh impetus with two wickets in quick succession, along with two for seamer George Burrows (2-44) to leave Durham in trouble at 133-6 and still 61 behind.
However a stubborn resistance from lower order batsman Billy Whitford (25) and James Weighell (15) ended any hope of a late Lancashire victory.
There was still time for Moulton (2-41) and Parkinson to pick up a late wicket each to finish with figures of three for 29 from his 18 overs. Durham closed on 190-8 with 13 wickets falling on Day Three.
