v Yorkshire Day 3 of 4
August 18th 2005
the full house of the Test Match a few days earlier to was odd to come into Old
Trafford and find one half of the ground closed and void of any spectators. Lancashire
were still cleaning up after the Test and demolishing the temporary stand put
up for the Australia game.
In this Roses battle Yorkshire had batted first
and made 417. Lancashire had replied with 243 for 3 with Chilton not out 130.
So obviously Lancashire supporters were looking forward to the home side scoring
700 and then bowling Yorkshire out for a few! Alas reality is not quite like that
. Chilton was out almost immediately without adding to his overnight score and
there was worse to follow.
