Alex Davies squeezes in an unbeaten half-century before weather wins out

Only 34.3 overs played across all four days as Lancashire draw at Northamptonshire

Lancashire 88 for 1 (Davies 51*) drew with Northamptonshire

Alex Davies notched a fourth half-century of the season before torrential rain condemned Northamptonshire’s LV= Insurance County Championship clash with Lancashire to an inevitable draw at Wantage Road.

Only 38 balls were possible following a delayed start, but Lancashire’s diminutive opener made the most of the small window in the weather to reach his landmark with a gorgeous cover drive for four, his sixth boundary in a 105-ball stay.

It didn’t come a moment too soon as just three balls later the heavens opened driving the players from the field with Lancashire 88 for 1 and Davies 51 not out.
