Derbyshire’s bowlers endured a difficult Day Two against Lancashire in the Specsavers County Championship match at Emirates Old Trafford. 

Josh Bohannon struck an unbeaten 150, while Liam Livingstone ended the day on 70 not out with Lancashire 269-2, leading by 25 ahead of Day Three.

Hamidullah Qadri was the sole Derbyshire bowler to claim a wicket a rain-affected second day, with the off-spinner bowling Keaton Jennings (38).

No play was possible before lunch on Day Two at Emirates Old Trafford, with overnight rain preventing Lancashire from resuming on the second morning in Manchester.

Play did resume at 1.40pm, Jennings and Bohannon resumed with hosts on 20-1, and the duo started the day positively, taking their partnership to 63 before the former was bowled by Qadri for 38.

Livingstone accelerated the scoring, with he and Bohannon adding 61 runs before tea as Lancashire whittled away at Derbyshire’s first innings lead.

Bohannon continued and brought up his century in 173 balls, including 15 fours and two sixes. He would face a further 69 balls before he made it to 150 in the final over of the day.

Bohannon will resume on Day Three unbeaten on 150, with Livingstone starting the day on 70 as Lancashire look to build on their 25-run lead.
