10.32am Just been made aware that this stand between Cornall and de Caires, 204 unbroken, is indeed a Leeds/Bradford record partnership versus county opposition.
Good morning from Emerald Headingley ahead of the third and final day of our friendly against Leeds/Bradford MCC Universities.
This is the penultimate friendly ahead of next Thursday’s LV= Insurance County Championship opener against Glamorgan here.
We face Durham MCC Universities in another three-dayer, starting on Saturday.
As for wrapping up this game today, we have been greeted by another stunning day weather wise. The sun is out, and it’s reasonably warm at the moment.
Leeds/Bradford enjoyed an excellent day yesterday thanks to second-wicket pair Taylor Cornall and Josh de Caires, who shared 204 unbroken to take their first innings to 205-1 at close. They are replying to Yorkshire’s 485-5 declared.
Cornall will begin the day on 97 and de Caires 94.
While a lot of the attention would have been on the innings of de Caires given he is Mike Atherton’s son, left-handed Cornall was excellent too.
Yorkshire were not displeased with the visitors’ resistance, however, given the bowlers need miles in their legs. But they do need to be sharper this morning and heading into next week.
The live stream will be on offer again. We get underway at 11am.
