Second XI's Championship clash with Worcestershire ends drawn

Second XI's Championship clash with Worcestershire ends drawn

Rain affected final day at Northern 

Neither side could force a result on a rain-hit final day, as Lancashire's Second XI Championship match against Worcestershire ended drawn.

The Red Rose resumed on 78-4 with a second innings lead of 53 runs, but lost Nick Greenwood (34), Tom Hartley (5) and Toby Lester (1) in quick succession.

Sam Dorsey, who was unbeaten overnight, and Ben Gibbon moved the Lancashire lead beyond three figures. 

When Gibbon departed for 18, Dorsey was joined by Richard Gleeson who crashed an important 44 not out, to slow the momentum of the Worcestershire bowlers.


Dorsey eventually fell for 37 and Gleeson was joined by Ed Moulton (18*) before Lancashire declared on 207-9.

The Red Rose required quick wickets with Worcestershire needing an unlikely 183 to win in the final session. 

George Balderson (2-13) added two more wickets to his four in the first innings, while Richard Gleeson (1-13) continued his injury comeback with five in the match.

Worcestershire closed on 51-3 following a hard-fought three days of cricket at Northern CC.
