5.50pm – We’re off for bad light at 30-0 after seven overs, a lead of 93. We have nine overs remaining, in theory. But it would be a surprise if we see any more play.

5.42pm – The light isn’t great as we head towards close, and Ollie Price’s off-spin has been brought into the attack. Yorkshire 21-0 in the fifth, leading by 84.

5.23pm – Lyth has started the second innings with three fours in as many balls off Shaw. 12-0 in the first, and the lead is 75.

5.14pm – The covers are coming off, so a resumption should be imminent.

5pm – WICKET! Singh Dale trapped lbw by Fisher, and Gloucestershire are 263 all out. Fisher and Coad finish with three wickets apiece. It is actually raining, so we are likely to be in for a delay. Yorkshire lead by 63.

4.39pm – WICKET! De Lange caught at mid-off Milnes. Fisher strikes, and it’s 241-9. There is a bit of rain around now as well.

3.42pm – WICKET! Lyth’s second ball has Bracey caught at slip by Root for 39. It’s 201-6 in the 79th over. And that will be tea.

Late cut from Bracey is caught at the second attempt by Root.

3.28pm – Gloucestershire have moved to 189-5 in the 74th over as they reply to 326. Charlesworth has just hit Root for two boundaries in as many balls through the covers. He has 16.

3pm – Gloucestershire 150-4 in the 65th over. Bancroft 67 and Bracey 12 as the hosts reply to our first-innings 326.

2.31pm – WICKET! Hammond stumped off Moriarty for 43, advancing at a delivery pushed a bit wider. Tattersall does the rest. It’s 126-4 in the 59th. That ends a 98-stand inside 42 overs with Bancroft, who remains unbeaten on 59.

2.13pm – Bancroft 50 off 160 balls with 1×4. Gloucestershire 110-3 in the 55th.

2.07pm – Rare sign of aggression from the hosts. Hammond has just pulled Fisher for six over backward square-leg, taking Gloucestershire to 109-3 and him to 36. Bancroft on 49.

12.56pm – Gloucestershire have just hit four boundaries in the 45 overs – 87-3 – and opener Bancroft is 44 not out.

12.41pm – Spin from both ends now. Glos 77-3 in the 40th over, bowled by Root.

12.24pm – It’s been a very attritional morning’s cricket so far. Gloucestershire tied down by some tight bowling, but wickets proving hard to come by. They are 70-3 in the 36th.

12.17pm – Moriarty into the attack for the first time in the match, in place of Hill. Gloucestershire are 61-3 in the 33rd over.

11.44am – Miles Hammond and Cameron Bancroft have settled Gloucestershire after the early loss of Shaw. They are 49-3 after 25 overs.

11.10am – WICKET! Milnes gets Shaw caught at third slip by Brook at ankle height. It’s 28-3 in the 18th over. Three maidens to start the day built the pressure.

11am – We’re up and running at Bristol. Coad is bowling to Bancroft on 5. Gloucestershire are 28-2 replying to 326.

10.32am – Before we get going here at Bristol, let’s have a look around the grounds at the other scores. It’s the first time we have done this in 2024, owing much to there not being a great deal of play around the circuit last week. But there was play at all venues yesterday.

Division Two 

Glamorgan 237 v Derbyshire 46-1, Sophia Gardens

Leicestershire 326-8 v Sussex, Uptonsteel County Ground

Northamptonshire 311-3 v Middlesex, Wantage Road

Division One 

Essex 421-6 v Kent, The Cloud County Ground

Hampshire 305-6 v Lancashire, Utilita Bowl

Nottinghamshire 305-6 v Worcestershire, Trent Bridge

Surrey 42-0 v Somerset 285, Kia Oval

Warwickshire 490-1 v Durham, Edgbaston

The eye-catching score from yesterday was that last one, Warwickshire 490-1 having been inserted by Scott Borthwick. Rob Yates (191) and captain Alex Davies (226 not out) shared 343 for the first wicket.

9.20am – Good morning from Bristol. It’s another lovely morning in the South West. The last two days have certainly felt like cricket season weather – for the first time this cricket season.

Yorkshire enjoyed the better of day one yesterday, recovering from 90-5 to post 326 before Matthew Fisher and Ben Coad struck once apiece in the early stages of the Glos reply. A good morning with the ball will clearly cement their position.

Both sides are warming up as we speak.

Shan Masood returned the standout score yesterday with 140 and spoke of extra personal meaning to his innings at close. You can read via the link below. But the fifties scored by Jonny Tattersall and Matt Milnes were excellent too. Tattersall was particular fluent immediately after lunch and started to turn the tide on the day after the home side’s excellent start.

You can recap on the day via our match report, again which is linked below.

If you fancy some extra reading, we also have a piece which has been published this morning with Noah Kelly previewing the Yorkshire Academy season and revealing his plans for 2024.

That brings us to Yorkshire’s second team, who completed their opening round Championship match against Lancashire at Headingley yesterday, the hosts having much the better of a draw. Will Luxton opened up with a brilliant 188 in the first innings 430-8 declared before Dom Bess impressed with 6-53 in Lancashire’s 266 all out. Following on, they finished 53-2. Mickey Edwards also struck three times in the match.
