He fared worse in the second innings, edging one to Dane Vilas off <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/james-anderson" target="_blank">James Anderson</a> for 3. Unfortunately, that remained the only success for Anderson in the second innings, who returned uncharacteristically expensive figures of 9-0-52-1. Anderson had 1 for 38 in the first innings, but Adam Lyth, his only wicket, had already scored 70 by then. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/jonny-bairstow" target="_blank">Jonny Bairstow</a>, the third wicket in Clark's hat-trick, counterattacked with a dazzling 67-ball 82 that tilted the match in <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/yorkshire" target="_blank">Yorkshire</a>'s favour. This came against an excellent <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/lancashire" target="_blank">Lancashire</a> attack, consisting of Anderson, Clark, and Graham Onions. <p></p> <p></p>Lancashire had to chase 323 after bowling out Yorkshire for 239. This included a second failure from Kane Williamson, the second wicket in Clark's hat-trick. This time he got a single before perishing off Onions. <p></p> <p></p>Keaton Jennings, Alex Davies, and Haseeb Hameed all scored between 30 and 32, and at one stage Lancashire were 110 for 5. Then <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Jos-Buttler" target="_blank">Jos Buttler</a> slammed a 69-ball 89. Just when it seemed that Buttler and Bailey would change the course of the match, Buttler swept the fifth ball of Root's first over to Williamson at leg-slip, giving the two Test captains something to celebrate. <p></p> <p></p>England's first Test against India starts August 1, at Edgbaston. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Brief scores:</strong> <p></p> <p></p><strong>Yorkshire</strong> 192 (Adam Lyth 70; Jordan Clark 5 for 58) and 239 (Harry Brook 55, Jonny Bairstow 82; Graham Onions 3 for 44) lead <strong>Lancashire</strong> 109 (Alex Davies 51; Ben Coad 3 for 28) and 194 for 6 (Jos Buttler 59; Steven Patterson 2 for 34) by 128 runs.
