Essex will again have to wait to begin the defence of their County Championship title
Specsavers County Championship Division One, Emerald Headingley (day two):
No play possible on day two because of rain

No play was possible at Headingley for a second day running between Yorkshire and 2017 county champions Essex.

The outfield remains saturated following the heavy rain in Leeds.

The Rugby Stand End was a particular problem area, with a significant amount of standing water remaining.

Umpires Richard Illingworth and Ian Gould had no option but to call off play at 14:00 BST, just after the scheduled lunch. The two sides will now hope to get under way on Sunday.
