  • Day One

    Just 31 overs were bowled on the opening day between Lancashire Second XI and the MCC Universities side at Weetwood Cricket Club yesterday.

    Stephen Parry won the toss and elected to bat first and Mark Chilton’s side made an impressive start with openers Luis Reece and Brooke Guest putting on 81 for the first wicket.

    Guest (45) was playing nicely and struck five boundaries before being dismissed by Kamau Leverock.

    Rob Jones came to the crease and played fluently hitting an unbeaten 20 off 33 deliveries before the train arrived, whilst Reece hit an unbeaten 43.

  • Day Two

    There was no play between Lancashire Second XI and the MCC Universities side on Day Two due to rain.

  • Day Three

    Lancashire Second XI drew with the MCC Universities side after a rain affected three days of cricket at Weetwood Cricket Club.

    Rain once again delayed the start of the final day, but play finally started after lunch yesterday. Both side's forfeited an innings, so the MCC University side required 267 to win from 60 overs.

    Lancashire made the perfect start with Toby Lester taking two wickets to leave the hosts in trouble at 22/2.

    Cullen and Brand came together and played very well for the MCC University side and put a partnership worth 142 for the third wicket partnership. 

    Lester picked up his third wicket dismissing Brand (74) before two more wickets fell in quick succession from Lester again and Stephen Parry with the home side on 192/5. 

    Despite a late assault, the MCC Universities just fell short of the required total and the game concluded in a draw, with Cullen hitting an unbeaten 107 for his side. Toby Lester impressed with the ball taking figures of 4/35 from 14 overs on the final day.
