Play was stopped with Lancashire on 7-0 after two overs, with this visitors chasing 260 to beat rivals Yorkshire.

Oumar Niasse's red card has been successfully overturned following Hull City's appeal to the Football Association.

The striker will be available to play against Southampton on the weekend after the three-match ban was rescinded.

Niasse was sent off in the 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday, with referee Robert Madley showing a straight red for a 25th-minute challenge on M’Baye Niang.

The forward has scored five times since arriving on loan from Everton in January.
