Tykes-Northants match abandoned

Friends Life t20, Headingley
Yorkshire v Northants. Match abandoned. 1pt each.

Yorkshire's FL t20 game against Northants was abandoned without a ball being bowled at Headingley.

The Tykes, who had won their previous two games, do not play again until the Roses rematch at Headingley next Friday night (1740 BST) against Lancashire.

North Group bottom club Northants now take on Warwickshire at Wantage Road this Wednesday night (1730 BST).

It was Yorkshire's first blank day of the season in any form of cricket.

Having made a poor start to the competition following defeats against Warwickshire and Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire's prospects of an extended run improved when they then beat Worcestershire and Lancashire on consecutive days last week.

But the rain set in well before the scheduled start and never relented, umpires Neil Bainton and Neil Mallender finally calling the game off at 3 o'clock.
