Yorkshire thrift overdone?

In Australia we're accustomed to using sporting arenas like the SCG, MCG, Adelaide Oval and the Gabba for more than one sport, but our administrators, despite their shortcomings and petty rivalries, never to my knowledge have double booked a ground.

This happened in Yorkshire at the weekend, where Yorkshire CC finished their game against Worcestershire early enough on the fourth day to give the ground authorities, as The Independent reports, just enough time to prepare for the Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors Rugby League match (which, unlike its cricketing opposite number, the home team lost 18 -22).

Using grounds for more than one sport is fine, but on the same day? Surely this is carrying thrift too far.
