bbc.comEngland Test captain Joe Root finished with a career-best 4-5 as Yorkshire polished off Lancashire in the first hour of day three to win by 118 runs.Lancashire resumed on 194-6, needing 129 runs to win the Roses match, but Root had Graham Onions caught with the first ball of the day at Old Trafford.His off-spin claimed Matt Parkinson before Tom Bailey (45) fell, with Root bowling James Anderson to seal victory.
Liam Livingstone came out at 11 despite a thumb injury but did not face a ball.Day three lasted less than an hour, Lancashire adding just 10 runs to their overnight total as they were all out for 204.A subsequent one-point deduction for a slow over-rate left them just one point above the Division One relegation places, having played a game more than seventh-placed Hampshire.Yorkshire, meanwhile, move up to fifth with their third County Championship win of the season, avenging their T20 Blast defeat by Lancashire on Friday.Root - who scored a combined 26 runs with New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson in the match - took the crucial wicket of Jos Buttler in the penultimate over of day two to leave Yorkshire as firm favourites.Lancashire captain Livingstone emerged to bat wearing a protective cast after fracturing his thumb whilst fielding on Sunday, but Root dismissed Anderson before he could face a delivery.
