Yorkshire have dropped into the relegation zone following Hampshire's win at Worcestershire and Lancashire's tied game with Somerset.

Meanwhile, Yorkshire have confirmed spinner Azeem Rafiq will leave the county when his contract expiresexternal-link at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old has had two spells with the White Rose and previously stood in as captain in 2012.

Notts batsman Ben Duckett:

"Obviously it's been a pretty good start for me getting a few runs, but it's a real shame we couldn't force a win.

"It was a tough wicket to get a result on and the rain yesterday affected that, but I've loved spending the week with the lads and fitted in very well.

"They've all welcomed me and it was nice to get some runs."

Yorkshire head coach Andrew Gale:

"We've been heading in the right direction over the course of the season and working really hard and it's good to see the lads getting the rewards.

"It wasn't a great pitch for bowling on but it was very good for batting on. You've still got to get the runs and hopefully, going forward, that will give a few individuals a lot of confidence."
