"I guess at this stage of the season, best result for us would be a draw (or a Durham win?)"

It's difficult to tell at this stage. Lancs may be ahead but not alot of people that i've spoken to fancy their chances of getting anywhere this year so maybe them taking points off of more likely title contenders isn't so bad at this early stage. Durham have also played a game less than most. I'd always go for the draw as the best possible result, it takes points out of the competition.

I agree - always difficult to tell how the season will pan out, so at this stage other teams standing still is probably the best outcome - there has been a lot of teams standing still this season - wins are like gold dust right now!

I thought Lancs were out of this match when the eigth wicket went down with nearly 150 left to chase. Clearly Liam Livingstone doesn't agree. He's just hit consecutive sixes.

Yes, still a tough ask you would think, 80 odd more needed. But a few more overs of Livingstone wielding the long handle and they could just about do it. They seem to be dodging the rain too

Lancashire 6 down now. Weather radar suggests there may be interruptions at CLS. I guess at this stage of the season, best result for us would be a draw (or a Durham win?)
15 out of 21 now in div 1, another slight improvement but still at 71%. Some big 1st innings scores this week but pitches deteriorating after that (or was it more to do with the change in weather or "scoreboard pressure?)

31 from 43 in both Divisions so far. 5 draws from 8 matches this week. Still far to many, but yet again bad weather interrupted most of them.

A much better week this week, especially in div 1. Especially good to see 2 games with results that could easily have gone either way on day 4, exactly what you want from a championship game.
