Steelbacks claim victory at Headingley
The Northants Steelbacks claimed a 14 run Duckworth Less victory over Yorkshire Carnegie after heavy rain washed out their clash at Headingley.
Having set Yorkshire a total of 152 to chase for victory the Steelbacks picked up four early wickets to leave the home side 51-4 as the rain started to fall.
With the rain continuing to fall the umpires called the game off at 17.15 to hand the victory to the Steelbacks who have now won two games in a row.
Having won the toss the Steelbacks decided to bat first with Lou Vincent (38) and Chaminda Vaas (20) getting the visitors off to a good start before a middle order collapse left the visitors short of a competitive total.
