Match Notes

  • Essex survive as Browne provides backbone

    Nick Browne made a half-century to go with 103 in the first innings as Essex staved off the threat of defeat after being made to follow on

  • Browne resists but Lancashire dominate

    Toby Lester was not the most famous left-arm bowler on show, not with Ryan Sidebottom's 11 for 76 leading Yorkshire to victory and messrs Starc and Johnson on hand for Australia but Lancashire valued his debut all the same

  • Croft leads professional Lancashire on second day of rain

    Although rain has already taken 122 overs out of this game, two full days remain and the 2015 season has already provided many examples of games being completed inside three days' playing time.

  • News on Smith lifts a bleak Manchester day

    The only optimistic note on a grey day at Old Trafford was that Tom Smith's back operation had been a success. Smith, appointed Lancashire captain in February, has led them in just one championship game
