Day Four washout seals Roses draw

Day Four washout seals Roses draw

Play was called off shortly after 10:30am with large puddles on the outfield and rain forecast throughout the day


Lancashire and Yorkshire endured further weather frustration as their Bob Willis Trophy clash at Emerald Headingley finished in a rain-soaked draw.

Umpires Peter Hartley and James Middlebrook decided to abandoned the final day at 10.30am with the rain teeming down and puddles on the outfield.

It was a far cry from the sun-soaked scene of 12 months ago to the day at Headingley when Ben Stokes brilliantly won the third Ashes Test for England against Australia.

A total of 212 overs were lost across the four days of a penultimate round North Group fixture which was unable to complete its first innings.

Lancashire finished on 195/5 replying to Yorkshire’s 260 in a match which saw 10 players make their maiden first-class Roses appearance.

The Red Rose are likely to head into their game with leaders Derbyshire at Liverpool still mathematically in contention. 

However, it would require a miraculous set of results for them to qualify as one of the best two group winners from the North, Central and South.
