Rain brings Essex friendly to an early close
Only one session possible on Day Two (game two) at Chelmsford
Just 30 overs were bowled on the final day of Lancashire's pre-season friendly against Essex at Chelmsford.
Lancashire resumed the day on 71-4 but lost a flurry of early wickets to a combination of young Essex seamer Shane Snater (5/19) and Sam Cook (2/30).
In tough conditions for batting, young Red Rose batsman Owais Shah looked in fluent touch for an unbeaten 39 - which included five fours and two sixes for the Scotland Under-19 international.
When the lunch interval arrived - with Lancashire 141-9 in response to the home sides 170-7 dec - so did the rain which brought an end to Lancashire's first pre-season friendly of 2021.
The Red Rose are back in pre-season action this Monday (29 March) when Glen Chapple's side welcome Derbyshire to Emirates Old Trafford.
