Yorkshire win rain-affected Northants game in One-Day Cup

Yorkshire’s cricket team pulled out a dramatic victory in the Royal London One-Day Cup at Northamptonshire.

An unbeaten 67 from opener Tom Kohler-Cadmore saw Yorkshire to an unlikely victory via the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method after rain cut Yorkshire’s run chase short after 24.4 overs.

Yorkshire closed on 175/5 in response to Northants’ 351, giving the White Rose the win by 5 wickets.

Richard Levi (58 from 62 balls) and Ricardo Vasconcelos (112 off 97) set the home side up for a good score with a 118-run stand for the first wicket but were unable to fully capitalise, with only Josh Cobb (58 off 55) and wicketkeeper Adam Rossington (45no off 25) really pushing the score along significantly before Northants were ultimately bowled out for a still challenging 351, with Mathew Pillans the pick of the visiting bowlers with 3-65.

But after a slow start, some late hitting from Kohler-Cadmore and Harry Brook (47 from 38) and a blistering 28 from 11 balls by ex-England Test batsman Gary Ballance saw Yorkshire home when the rain came.
