Rafiq bowls Yorkshire to victory

Azeem Rafiq took five wickets for Yorkshire in a  victory over Bangladesh A at Headingley, as the tourists continued their preparations for the upcoming three-match series against England Lions.

Liam Plunkett and Adam Lyth contributed 47 not out and 45 respectively to a home total of 198.

Bangladesh A opener Anamul Haque then made 69 before falling to Rafiq, who finished with figures of 5-30.

The visitors got within eight runs of victory with two wickets in hand, but Iain Wardlaw and Plunkett struck in successive overs to deny them a first win of their tour.
