Headingley Carnegie rain

Spectators wait patiently at Headingley Carnegie before play in the Friends Life t20 between Yorkshire and Northants was ruled out

Yorkshire’s bid to complete a hat-trick of Friends Life t20 North Group victories was ruined by bad weather, which prevented a ball being bowled in their match against Northamptonshire at Headingley Carnegie.

The rain set in well before the scheduled start and never relented. Umpires Neil Bainton and Neil Mallender called the game off at 3pm.

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 Thursday and Friday respectively.

Their better form meant they were confident of a good result against Northants, who were propping up the table with just one win - over Warwickshire - from their first four outings. Today’s washout leaves Yorkshire with five points and the Spitfires with three.
