During another successful day against Yorkshire at Headingley, Keaton Jennings completed a magnificent 238 to establish Lancashire’s greatest individual total in a Roses match.
On day two of the County Championship Division One fixture, the left-handed opener’s third career double century and second against Yorkshire bolstered his side’s enormous total of 566-9 declared.
After resuming on 288-3, the Red Rose punished Yorkshire’s shoddy fielding by dropping a succession of catches, including four by Jennings.
After tea, Lancashire declared with the highest Roses total on the board, 53-2, before Yorkshire closed with 53-2.
Jennings came up short of Darren Lehmann’s 252 at Headingly in 2001, which was the best individual score for either side in Roses first-class cricket.
In a first-class friendly four years earlier at the same venue, he beat Graham Lloyd’s Lancashire record of 225.
Before being run out, the 29-year-old struck 32 fours in 408 balls.
His previous career-best score of 221 not out came against them for Durham in 2016, and he also scored two hundreds for his current employers against them last season.
Jennings struck 110 against Warwickshire in his final Test in early 2019.
Early on, Jennings, who started the day on 150, and visiting captain Dane Vilas, who hit 82 and contributed to a 177-run fourth-wicket stand, took few risks.
Vilas, whose 17th run brought his first-class career total to 10,000, was the one who pushed the pace.
To reach his half-century, he lofted Dom Bess over the ropes and drew Haris Rauf for a stunning six over Headingly’s doubled-tiered stand.
With four wickets in the afternoon and two after lunch, Yorkshire reclaimed some respectability.
Bess, the off-spinner, took the lead, trapping both Vilas and George Balderson lbw and catching Phil Salt at slip for 37.
Jennings was sent back by Salt and run out at the non-end striker’s amid all of this.
He added his second when Luke Wood picked out deep backward square leg for 39, signaling an immediate declaration.After conceding their third highest first-class score at Headingly, Yorkshire then lost opener Adam Lyth lbw offering no shot to a Bailey inswinger in the second over of their reply.Dawid Malan later fell to an excellent diving catch by Matt Parkinson at midwicket off Balderson, leaving Yorkshire 48-2.George Hill and Loten ensured there were no further alarms and reached 15 and three respectively at stumps. --> Read More --> 2 hours ago Man United adolescent on the verge of becoming a superstar
