Live updates from Emirates Old Trafford

Play abandoned for today. An additional 8 overs will be added to tomorrow's play and we will return for day three against Warwickshire at 11am.

Rain continues to fall and it would seem prospects of any further play look fairly slim.

Play halted due to rain.

Here's the current scene at Emirates Old Trafford and it does not look promising for the rest of the day.

3.50pm, TEA Day 2
Lancashire 127-0 after 42 overs, Wells 70 Jennings 44, trail by 188.
Luke Wells lofts off spinner Rob Yates over mid-on for his 12th four and that's the last action of the afternoon as the umpires confer about the light and take the players off for an early tea.

The hover cover comes onto the wicket as there are one or two spots of rain in the air.

Lancashire 100-0 after 36 overs, Wells 59 Jennings 30, trail by 215.
The century partnership between Luke Wells and Keaton Jennings has arrived from the first ball of the 36th over as Lancashire's good day continues.

For how much longer it's hard to say as the light from the floodlights is becoming increasingly brighter due to gloomy overhead conditions.

Lancashire 85-0 after 30 overs, Wells 51 Jennings 23, trail by 230.

Luke Wells' 50 came off 90 balls & included 9 fours!

Lancashire 71-0 after 27 overs, Wells 43 Jennings 17, trail by 244.
Keaton Jennings has driven Oliver Hannon-Dalby square for four and will feel much better for getting just the second boundary of his innings.

But, in his first innings of the season, Jennings is playing a great role in this opening partnership of 71.

Luke Wells has been fluent at the other end, driving crisply and hitting 8 boundaries so far.

An excellent start by Lancashire as play continues under cloudy skies with the floodlights on.

Lancashire 47-0 after 18 overs, Wells 29 Jennings 10, trail by 268.
We are back 'on air' after a power cut at one section of the ground brought everything, including the scoreboards, to a sudden halt.

It's not had any affect on play I'm pleased to report where Luke Wells has produced some glorious drives since lunch and Lancashire have made a good, positive start to their innings.

1.00pm, LUNCH Day 2
Lancashire 18-0 after 9 overs, Wells 12 Jennings 6, trail by 301.
That represents a good morning for Lancashire who took the last three Warwickshire wickets reasonably cheap-ish, and Luke Wells and Keaton Jennings have looked solid during the 45 minutes before the break.

Lancashire 18-0 after 6 overs, Wells 12 Jennings 6, trail by 301.
Luke Wells has timed the ball nicely for the three fours he has struck so far. Keaton Jennings just easing himself in as we approach the lunch interval.

Warwickshire opened their attack with Hannon-Dalby and Miles but we are now watching the slow left-arm spin of Danny Briggs in the 6th over.

Lancashire 1-0 after 2 overs, Wells 0 Jennings 1, trail by 314.
Luke Wells is joined out in the middle for the first time this season by Keaton Jennings as Lancashire begin their reply to Warwickshire's 315 all out.

It remains cloudy at Emirates Old Trafford but thankfully it is also staying dry for now.

Warwickshire 315 all out after 113 overs, Sibley 142 not out
Matt Parkinson bowls Oliver Hannon-Dalby for 3 so Dom Sibley has carried his bat having made an excellent unbeaten 142.

That means Sibley has carried his bat for the fourth time.

Parkinson, Bailey and Hassan Ali all finish with three wickets each.

Warwickshire 308-9 after 110 overs, Sibley 135 Hannon-Dalby 3
Warwickshire finish the 110th over with three batting points as this last wicket partnership frustrates Lancashire, Dom Sibley driving Luke Wood for a glorious straight drive in the last over.

Matt Parkinson is coming on to bowl for the first time today.

Nice to see former Director of Cricket, Ashley Giles here today. Ashley is currently talking to Scott Read on LancsTV.

Warwickshire 288-9 after 102 overs, Sibley 122 Hannon-Dalby 0
Maximum bowling points for Lancashire after Hassan Ali strikes again getting a second lbw to dismiss Craig Miles for 4.

That's Hassan's 23rd wicket of the season so far.

Warwickshire 282-8 after 99.2 overs, Sibley 119 Miles 0
Hassan Ali strikes early trapping Nathan McAndrew lbw for 15. Just the start Lancashire wanted!

Warwickshire 275-7 after 97 overs, Sibley 119 McAndrew 9
Play gets under way with Dom Sibley edging the first ball from Tom Bailey on the bounce to Keaton Jennings at second slip who pretends he's taken a catch before throwing the ball back to the bowler.

I love this photograph from 100 Years Ago today of Lancashire taking the field on the first day of the season to play Glamorgan!

Photo: Lancashire take to the field at Old Trafford on 6 May 1922, the first day of the season, for the match against Glamorgan. Led out by captain Miles Kenyon are Frank Watson, Lol Cook, Ernest Tyldesley, Dick Tyldesley, Harry Makepeace, Walker Ellis, Cec Parkin, Peter Fairclough, Charlie Hallows and wicketkeeper Ben Blomley. 


Good morning from a cloudy but dry Emirates Old Trafford for the second day of our LV= Insurance County Championship match with Warwickshire.

Century-maker Dom Sibley will resume his innings on 118 alongside Nathan McAndrew (9 not out) after Warwickshire, who won the toss, made 273-7 yesterday.

Tom Bailey headed a good bowling effort by the Red Rose attack for 3-50 and admitted the team had been buoyed after taking three late wickets with the second new ball. Click here for yesterday’s match report.

The first day saw a great tussle between last year’s champions and runners-up so expect more of the same today.

The main concern is that we have a rainy forecast for later, so fingers crossed that we still get a decent amount of play in today.
