As disappointing as the batting display was for Andrew Gale’s team at Headingley - Gary Ballance and Alex Lees aside - the White Rose can now turn its attention to the main focus of the season.

With three games remaining, Yorkshire are six points ahead of their nearest challengers Nottinghamshire as they head over the Pennines to Old Trafford to face struggling Roses rivals Lancashire on Sunday.

The Yorkshire Post’s cricket correspondent Chris Waters discusses Yorkshire’s efforts in both formats with host Phil Harrison, as well as looking at the calls for Alastair Cook to step down as England’s one-day captain and whether Yorkshire all-rounder Tim Bresnan will be able to force his way back into the reckoning for the national team again.
