Lancashire go top despite rain-hit draw at Northants: County Championship

Alex Davies

LV= County Championship Group Three, The County Ground, Northampton (day four):

Lancashire 88-1: Davies 51*

Northamptonshire: Yet to bat

Northamptonshire (8 pts) drew with Lancashire (8 pts)


Lancashire moved to the highest point of the Group Three table regardless of an altogether baffling visit to Northamptonshire.

Just 6.2 overs were conceivable on the last day – and simply 34.3 overs in the whole match – at Wantage Road.

Alex Davies had the opportunity to arrive at his fourth 50 years of the period and was 51 not out when the umpires canceled the game, with Luke Wells on seven.

The guests are three focuses clear of Yorkshire in front of the Roses match at Old Trafford, what begins on Thursday.
