The wars of the roses continued into the 21st century, but were rudely interrupted for a couple of years, when Yorkshire fell out of the top division in 2002. In a beautiful demonstration of northern solidarity, the red rose lovingly decided to join the white rose in the dung heap of English county cricket, namely Division Two of the County Championship in 2005. Both lovers returned to the elite in 2006 to continue cricketing hostilities avec one another. During this era: YORKSHIRE 3 wins, Lancashire 2 wins, 13 draws.
