Damp outfield causes abandonment of Roses clash at Headingley

News

No leg break for Leech after fielding injury that caused suspension of play on Tuesday

No play was possible on the final day of the drawn Roses LV= Insurance County Championship fixture between Yorkshire and Lancashire at Emerald Headingley due to a wet outfield.

Umpires Ian Gould and Nigel Llong inspected the problematic Emerald Stand End of the ground, which also forced the abandonment of yesterday’s play 7.2 overs into the afternoon.

Gould, Llong and both coaches and captains were involved in lengthy early morning discussions, and play was called off just after 10am. England’s cricketers are due to play a T20I against Pakistan at Headingley on Sunday.
