9.20am – Good morning from the Seat Unique Stadium. The sun is out, and we’re all set for day three, which will start at 11am.

Yorkshire enjoyed another good day yesterday, bowling Gloucestershire out for 263 in reply to 326 and then almost doubling the first innings lead before close to sit 120 ahead going into today. The visitors will resume on 57-0.

Ben Coad and Matthew Fisher were both excellent, finishing with three wickets apiece yesterday, as Glos advanced from 28-2 overnight. It was a real grind for the bowlers, particularly before lunch as the hosts dug in on a placid pitch. But all Yorkshire’s bowlers played their part. Dan Moriarty was good for his two-for, Matt Milnes as well with one. Golden arm Adam Lyth claimed the other.

Lyth can have a big influence on today given he will start on 39 not out.

There is the suggestion of some rain about tomorrow, so it will be interesting to see if that plays a part in Yorkshire’s thinking today. Do they really kick on and try and beat the weather as well as Gloucestershire?

If you want to recap yesterday’s action, you can do via our match report and reaction piece from Coad. They are both linked below. The scorecard and live stream are available via the tabs at the top of the page.
