Steve Patterson

“We knew coming into the game it would be hard work on a good surface.

“We managed to win the toss and start really well with the bat, getting our biggest score for three years.

“We knew then we could put the pressure back on them.

“To make them follow-on was going to be tough, but to get five pretty quickly last night broke the back and made it a bit easier today.

“In games like this you have to be very patient. You can go a couple of hours without any success. Then it can come in a hurry.

“We continued to believe that if we put the hard yards in, we’d get success.

“Everybody’s contributed, which is all you can ask for. The attitude has been superb, and we are delighted to win.”

2.41pm YORKSHIRE WIN! By an innings and 44 runs as Dawson mistimes a pull at Olivier and picks out Kohler-Cadmore at mid-wicket on 92. 208 all out. 23 points for Yorkshire.

2.37pm Hampshire reach 200-9 as Dawson looks to take all of the strike from last man Edwards. Dawson is on 84.

2.25pm Barker caught behind off Patterson for 64. 190-9.

2.05pm No joy for Yorkshire in the opening 25 minutes of the afternoon, with Coad and Patterson in tandem. Hampshire 174-8.

Lunch Yorkshire are being held up by Hampshire’s ninth-wicket pair Liam Dawson and Keith Barker as they look to wrap up victory on day four at the Ageas Bowl.

The White Rose remain on course for a deserved Specsavers County Championship victory, but Hampshire have recovered their second innings from 59-8 to 157-8.

Ben Coad struck three times in the first half an hour of the day, bowling a superb six-over spell which cost him only five runs.

Coad trapped Rilee Rossouw lbw, leaving Hampshire at 55-6 in the 31st over.

Then, in the 33rd, he had Gareth Berg caught at first slip by Tom Kohler-Cadmore – his sixth catch of the match – and Ian Holland lbw for a golden duck (59-8).

Holland only joined the game today as a concussion replacement for wicketkeeper Lewis McManus, who was twice struck on the helmet yesterday by Olivier bouncers.

Dawson and Barker, who have 62 and 40 not out respectively, have since shared a record ninth-wicket partnership for Hampshire in matches against Yorkshire.

Dawson’s fourth successive first-class fifty this season came off 90 balls.

12.55pm Liam Dawson and Keith Barker have shared 90 for the ninth wicket, a Hampshire record for that wicket against Yorkshire. They have taken the sore to 149-8. Dawson has 57 and Barker 40 as Jack Leaning and Joe Root bowl in tandem.

12.33pm Second fifty of the match for Dawson, off 90 balls with 4×4s. He has added 65 for the ninth wicket with Barker (26). Hampshire 124-8.

12.21pm Hampshire have moved to 109-8 as they bid for a near miracle draw. Dawson has 45 and Barker 17. The deficit is 143.

12pm Coad is replaced by Patterson having bowled a six-over spell, 3-5. Hampshire 81-8.

11.32am Coad gets Berg caught at first slip and then Holland (concussion replacement for McManus) lbw first ball. It’s 59-8!

11.20am Breakthrough for Yorkshire…..Ben Coad traps Rilee Rossouw lbw in the sixth over of the day. Only one run conceded so far. 55-6.

Good morning from the Ageas Bowl, where the sun is shining once again.

We head into day four, starting at 11am, with Yorkshire in a fabulous position as they chase their first Specsavers County Championship win of the season from their second game.

Hampshire, trailing by 198, at 54-5 in their second innings have plenty to do despite the pitch still being pretty good to bat on. Andrew Gale spoke of uneven bounce last night, however.

The White Rose blew the door open after tea last night, taking seven wickets in all, first of all forcing the hosts to follow-on.

Steve Patterson led an exceptional all round bowling display with five wickets in the day and will look to add to his 3-9 in the second innings this morning.

All of Hampshire’s big guns, James Vince, Aiden Markram and Sam Northeast, are back in the shed.

Fingers crossed we can wrap up the 23 points.

Enjoy the day.
