Think Yorkshire will have had the Notts game on their mind where they nearly lost a similar run chase. They were always going to play for the draw here, get the 5 points and stick to more a less a maximum point win on Middlesex with the game in hand. Lancashire got about 30 or so too many to tempt them I think.

Can he not just go by Alan Morgan to make things less confusing?

Yorkshire also need more runs in less time than Notts, there was another time earlier in the season they were batting for a draw and made a bit of a mess of it. Batting is a bit thin and no one is have a really good season, Lees has the most runs and averages 39 for the season as of the rest its telling that Bairstow is still Yorkshire 4th highest runs score in the CC this year. Lyth has had an excellent white ball year mind

Leics. very kindly helping Zaib decrease his average, rather than declaring like a good little second division side.
