Play was washed out at Headingley on day one of the County Championship match between Yorkshire and Essex.

With heavy rain and a soaked outfield, play was abandoned for the day at 1330 BST without a ball being bowled.

Australian Phil Jaques, who played for Yorkshire in 2004 and 2005, is expected to make his first appearance for the county since rejoining them this week.

Essex are aiming to continue their fine start to the season after they thrashed Gloucestershire in their first match.
