Second XI draw with Derbyshire despite frantic final day

Second XI draw with Derbyshire despite frantic final day

Second XI Championship clash drawn at Derbyshire

Lancashire's Second XI Championship match away to Derbyshire ended drawn despite a frantic Day Three at Belper Meadows CC.

After Day One was lost to rain, a couple of sporting declarations on the final day set up a scenario where all three results were possible in the fourth innings. 

Lancashire declared on their overnight first innings total of 58-5, still 144 runs behind Derbyshire's 202 all out. 

The home side then crashed a quick 125-0 through openers Tyler McGladdery (61*) and Cox (60*), to set Lancashire 270 to win from two and a half sessions. 


The Red Rose lost openers Owais Shah and Ed Fluck cheaply, but Danny Lamb (41) and a quick 35 from Jake Lehmann put their side in a good position at 90-2. 

Lamb and Lehmann then fell in quick succession but the runs continued to flow through George Lavelle (31) and Stephen Parry.

When Lavelle departed, Lancashire had reached 151-5 but their hopes of a victory started to fade. Tom Hartley (11) and Matt Parkinson (16) were both dismissed trying to add quick runs.

With Lancashire 222-7 the two teams shook hands on a draw, with Parry still there at the end on an unbeaten 37.
