Lancashire v Yorkshire

The Lancashire Lightning coasted to a 110-run victory against the Yorkshire Phoenix in the Roses clash at Old Trafford.

Stuart Law hit a stunning 101 with 12 fours and three sixes, taking 22 in one over from spinner Michael Lawson.

Ian Harvey dismissed Dominic Cork and Law in successive balls as Yorkshire restricted the home side to 207-6, when they had been 161-1 from 14 overs.

Dangerman Harvey fell in the first over as Cork claimed 3-10 and Muttiah Muralitharan also struck in his first over, capturing 3-17 in teaming rain.

The Red Rose county had seemed certain to break the Twenty20 record of 224 set by Northants earlier this year.

Law and Mal Loye got them off to an astonishing start, with 82-0 from six overs, Law racing to fifty from 27 balls, 42 of them coming in boundaries, until he was caught on the square cover fence.

Murali and Brad Hodge were making their final appearances of the season for Lancashire because of international commitments.
