Scorecard

Yorkshire ended Lancashire's unbeaten run in the Pro ARCH Trophy, winning the Good Friday Roses clash at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium by 41 runs.

Yorkshire's 237 was about par for the course. They should have scored more but none of their batsmen were able to build a major innings, stand-in skipper Anthony McGrath top-scoring with 41. Andrew Gale (32) and Craig White (29) got Yorkshire off to a good start with a first-wicket stand of 66 before legspinner Simon Marshall accounted for White, the first of his four wickets. Yorkshire seemed well set for a late salvo but lost their last five wickets for 28.

Lancashire lost early wickets to Deon Kruis and Ajmal Shahzad and at 80 for 5 they appeared on course for a heavy defeat. But Andrew Flintoff and Glen Chapple revived the innings and raised hopes of victory before Flintoff holed out to midwicket soon after reaching his fifty. Left-arm spinner David Wainwright finished off Lancashire with 3 for 31.

Flintoff bowled four overs in taking 1 for 22 and said afterwards: "I would love to play a Test match at Lord's, but the one thing that I am not going to do is get carried away. I know that if I want to play for England, then I have got to be fit. I won't be able to just walk back into that side.

"I have got to focus all my energies on playing for Lancashire. If I can stay fit and perform, then I would hopefully be in the shake up on May 15. It wasn't too taxing, and I am happy with the way things are ... how the ankle is standing up to the rigours of bowling. I am certainly not hitting the crease as hard as I would like, but it feels good and easy.
