Lancashire declared their first-innings reply to 200 on 504 for eight after a brief rain delay following the loss of Liam Livingstone for 224 and Ryan McLaren for 21.

Australian seamer Ryan Sidebottom, not to be confused with the Yorkshireman of the same name, removed both in the 125th over of the innings, the third of the morning. He had Livingstone caught at short mid-wicket and McLaren caught at deep mid-wicket.

Both Warwick openers have 19 not out apiece with three boundaries.
