AN on-point bowling display set up a comfortable Roses win at a packed York CC as Lancashire got their Royal London Cup campaign underway at the second attempt.

In front of a 4,449 crowd at sunny Clifton Park, Yorkshire were bowled out for 224 inside 49 overs.

Danny Lamb returned 3-32 from five on the same pitch the Vikings posted 353-5 in Tuesday’s win over Northamptonshire.

Luke Wells returned 2-25 before opening the batting and racing to a career-best 88 off 67 balls, paving the way for a seven-wicket win with nine overs remaining. Washington Sundar, 30 not out, hit the winning runs.

Nine Yorkshire players reached double figures with only Will Fraine reaching 40, the opener top-scoring at 41.

Fraine and Harry Duke - both centurions on Tuesday - shared a solid 66 inside 12 overs.

But Lancashire struck three times for nine runs in 16 balls to assert their authority on a fast-scoring ground.

New Zealander Will Williams had Duke for 17 before Lamb struck twice in the 14th, getting Fraine caught and George Hill lbw for a three-ball duck. Four overs later, Will Luxton (17) edged Lamb behind.

Jack Blatherwick struck twice in four overs, with Matthew Waite caught and bowled (11) and Matthew Revis caught (14).

Dom Bess (1) fell lbw to Sundar and captain Jonny Tattersall joined the procession at 34, trapped lbw by Wells.

Tom Loten (32no) and Ben Coad (20) at least shared 35 - the second-highest partnership of the innings - to ensure respectability at more than 200.

Lancashire initially batted with caution, scoring just 23 from the first five overs. But once the platform was laid, they hit cruise control.

The loss of captain Keaton Jennings for 20, caught off Coad, was no issue as Wells hit sixes over long-on, long-off and midwicket. He dominated a 102-stand with Josh Bohannon before pulling to Revis.

Bohannon (51) put the icing on the cake before dragging on to Loten before Sundar and Croft (31no) took Lancashire over the line.
