3.40pm – It continues to rain here at Chesterfield, where tea is being taken.

2.50pm – It has started raining again mid-inspection.

2.31pm – The rain has stopped, and the covers are coming off. There will be an inspection at 2.45pm.

1.50pm – We’re off for rain at 416-6 in the 94th over, a lead of 340. Tattersall 93 and Thompson 9. It’s heavy rain too.

1.46pm – WICKET! Wharton caught at second slip off Dupavillon for a brilliant 188. It’s 406-6 in the 92nd over, ending a stand of 241 with Tattersall, 92.

Thompson has come in and whacked his first two balls for four. 414-6 now.

1.36pm – We’re underway, with Yorkshire 402-5, leading by 326. Wharton 188, Tattersall 88. No overs lost, so a minimum of 64 remaining in the day.

1.31pm – We’re all set for a resumption shortly, at 1.35pm. The rain has passed through.

12.47pm – Lunch is now being taken. The rain has stopped, so hopefully we can get going again pretty quickly.

12.31pm – We’re off for rain immediately after Wharton drives Dupavillon for four – new ball taken – to help us reach 402-5 in the 90th over, a lead of 326. Wharton 188, Tattersall 88.

12.14pm – We’re playing through rain. Yorkshire 377-5 in the 84th over. Wharton 174, Tattersall 74.

12.07pm – Wharton 165 and Tattersall 69 have shared 195 and counting – a sixth-wicket record for Yorkshire in first-class matches v Derbyshire. We’ve moved to 360-5 – a lead of 284.

It’s interesting that when you look at the list of record partnerships for Yorkshire against Derbyshire, the fourth, fifth, sixth and eighth-wicket records are now held by current players.

Fourth – 231, Bairstow and Root at Headingley in 2013. Fifth – 200, Malan and Tattersall in 2020. Sixth, this one. Eighth – 125, Revis and Thompson at Scarborough in 2023.

11.51am – Wharton 150!!! He gets there off 180 balls with 20x4s and 4x6s. It’s 338-5 in the 75th, a lead of 262.

Fabulous. Though he did offer half a chance on 147 to Whiteley running in from cover off Wagstaff.

11.30am – Tattersall has reached his fifty off 87 balls with 6x4s. Excellent knock. Yorkshire 315-5 after 68.

11.28am – SIX! Wharton hoists Wagstaff down the ground again, moving to 138 out of 311-5. Derbyshire started the day minus five on the over-rate (a point deducted per over down), hence why they’ve started the day with spin.

11.21am – Yorkshire 300-5 in the 66th over, with a second batting point in the bag. Wharton 128, Tattersall 46.

11.15am – SIX! Wharton pulls Wagstaff’s leg-spin over wide long-on, moving to 127. We’re 299-5, a lead of 223. Tattersall has 46.

11.09am – We’ve moved to 288-5, adding five runs in the opening three overs of the day.

10.59am – We’re all set to go for day two here at Chesterfield. Yorkshire 283-5 from 58 overs, leading by 207. Wharton on 116 will face the spin of Wagstaff. Tattersall 41.

10.55am – Sir Geoffrey Boycott has just run the five-minute bell here at Chesterfield.

10.32am – We’re still dry at Chesterfield, where play is half an hour away. Yorkshire are concluding their warm-ups with some catching, while Dom Leech is having a bowl with second-team coach Tom Smith, who is here this week.

9.15am – Good morning from Chesterfield, where the sun is shining and we are all set for a start on time at 11am.

There had been some rain forecast for today, and we may still get it. But the locals say that it’s improved significantly, which is great news.

Yorkshire will resume on 283-5 in reply to Derbyshire’s 76 all out. Vishwa Fernando claimed 5-30 and James Wharton hit 116 not out. They were the two standout performances on a first day which was played out on a helpful pitch which has started to show signs of uneven bounce.

If you want to recap yesterday’s action, you can do via our match report and reaction piece with Wharton. They are linked below.

Match Report 

James Wharton 

It was an excellent day for Yorkshire Cricket yesterday as the Diamonds beat Central Sparks at Scarborough in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy and there were also wins for Yorkshire women and the county’s D40 disability second team.

Fingers crossed, the lads can back it up here at Chesterfield today.
