Yorkshire were frustrated by rain at Headingley on Monday with less than 10 overs possible on day two of their Championship match against Nottinghamshire.

The visitors had been dismissed for 205 on day one as Yorkshire looked to apply further pressure on Middlesex at the top of the table and resumed on 52 for 2 in the morning. But they could add only 24 to that total before the players were brought off due to bad light at 11.40am, with Jack Leaning on 35 and captain Andrew Gale on 23.

The rain began to fall but the the groundstaff did start removing the covers before the wet weather then returned. The sun eventually came back out but umpires Martin Saggers and Alex Wharf called play off for the day due to a saturated outfield at 3.40pm.

That means Yorkshire, who claimed all three bowling points on Sunday, trail Notts by 129 runs with eight first-innings wickets remaining.
