Essex will meet Kent in the Lord's final of the Friends Provident Trophy thanks to a fierce attacking innings by Graham Napier and the tight leg-spin of Danish Kaneria. On a dry, hard pitch, chasing 285 was likely to prove difficult. "You can't get eight an over against Kaneria," said Yorkshire's captain, Darren Gough, after positively his last appearance in the 50-over cup competition on Saturday. After a bright start, Yorkshire lost nine wickets for 58 runs and fell well short.

Essex County Council really ought to erect a street sign outside the county ground in Chelmsford saying "Beware Graham Napier". This stocky, blonde local lad hit 152 not out 12 days ago. That was the highest-ever score in a Twenty20 game in England. He came in yesterday in the 40th over of the Friends Provident Trophy semi-final when Essex's batting had stumbled suddenly to 182 for 4. When he was out in the 50th over the 28-year-old Napier had transformed Essex's fortunes, scoring 61 off 34 balls – his 50 came off 27 balls – with six sixes and two fours. It proved more than enough to secure Essex a Lord's final against Kent on 16 August.

Leeds' victory was more than a memorable rugby league match. It was also the first ever to be played at the same time as a cricket match on the other side of the Headingley grandstand.

After Wednesday's experience, inviting Yorkshire to bat first here was probably a straightforward decision for Luke Sutton. On a misty morning in Leeds after overnight rain, the last thing Lancashire's stand-in captain wanted was a repeat of their Friends Provident Trophy humiliation, when the injury-ravaged White Rose could barely find five people to bowl but still blew away their opponents for 89.

Rain may have denied Yorkshire the pleasure of the most one-sided triumph over an embarrassed Lancashire in the second Roses match of the season, but Darren Gough's side had the consolation of confirming a place in the quarter-finals of the Friends Provident Trophy, where they will play Gloucestershire in Bristol.
