PROMOTION-chasing Yorkshire were frustrated by the weather as rain robbed them of a likely victory against Leicestershire in the LV= County Championship match at Grace Road.

A total of 60 overs were lost on the final day and Leicestershire held out for a draw, finishing on 157 for seven, still nine runs behind. But the 11 points Yorkshire pocketed took them into second place above Hampshire, while Leicestershire’s haul of eight points lifted them off the bottom of the table.
