Yorkshire’s Matthew Fisher

“I wouldn’t say we have an unassailable lead, we are just going to try to get as many as we can. We know they have been in the field a long time so it is just about trying to get through that new ball then it will hopefully become a little easier to bat.

“We are really happy with how we applied ourselves as a team. Galey and Patto said they were probably the most impressed they have been all season with how we batted yesterday.”

6.53pm – Close Superb day for Yorkshire, who are 34-1 from 12 overs of their second innings, leading Hampshire by 114. Kohler-Cadmore 16 and Hill 10. Three wickets each for Coad and Thompson earlier.

6.29pm Yorkshire are 15-1 in the sixth of 12 overs to be bowled tonight. The lead is 95. The light is fading.

6.12pm WICKET Lyth caught behind off Wheal, 7. Good ball. Yorkshire 7-1 after two overs, leading by 87.

5.55pm WICKET Wheal caught behind off Coad, who finishes with three wickets alongside Thompson. Hampshire 163 all out, trailing by 80. There are 12 overs remaining in the day.

5.37pm Hampshire 144-9 after 58 overs. We have 19 remaining in the day should the light hold. Abbott 14 and Wheal 5. Coad and Bess charged with wrapping up the innings.

5.10pm WICKET Crane fends Thompson to Lyth at second slip. 123-9 in the 51st.

5.10pm Some interesting news concerning former Yorkshire Championship winner Liam Plunkett, who is leaving Surrey at the end of the season and throwing his lot in with America. He will play in their new Major League T20 competition which begins in 2022.

5.08pm WICKET McManus caught behind off Bess. Great piece of work by Duke. McManus jams it into his own foot and it loops up to Duke, who takes the catch one-handed. It’s 121-8 in the 50th.

4.51pm WICKET Barker caught at first slip by Kohler-Cadmore off Thompson, 2. It’s 113-7 in the 47th.

4.48pm We’re up and running after tea. Hampshire 113-6 in the 46th.

Tea Report Matthew Fisher claimed the prized wicket of James Vince for 49 during the second afternoon as Yorkshire pressed ahead against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl.

Replying to Yorkshire’s first-innings 243, Hampshire advanced from 29-3 at lunch to reach 109-6 at tea, trailing by 134.

Fisher, Dom Bess and Jordan Thompson claimed the afternoon wickets of Vince, Tom Alsop and Liam Dawson respectively, the latter with the first ball of the afternoon’s final over – the 45th over.

Vince had looked in excellent touch on the way to 49, though he was kept on that score for 10 balls as the White Rose impressively built pressure.

And Fisher was rewarded when the England man top-edged a pull and was caught at deep backward square-leg by George Hill, leaving the score at 86-4 in the 33rd.

Then, in the 36th, Bess bowled left-handed Alsop for a near two-and-a-half hour 12 – 93-5.

Thompson, the most expensive of Yorkshire’s probing attack, then claimed the wicket of Dawson, trapped lbw, to give the visitors a significant boost ahead of the evening session.

4.22pm – Tea WICKET Great way to end the session. Thompson gets Dawson lbw with the first ball of the final over before tea. Players walk off for the break with Hampshire 109-6 in the 45th over, trailing by 134 runs. Three wickets in the session.

3.49pm WICKET Alsop has been bowled by Bess. Excellent. Hampshire are 93-5 in the 36th over, replying to 243.

3.36pm WICKET Brilliant!! Fisher gets Vince caught at deep backward square-leg following a top-edged pull, 49. Hill takes the catch. Rewards for keeping him quiet on 49 for some time. 86-4 in the 33rd.

3.31pm Hampshire are 86-3 after 32 overs. Vince has been on 49 for the best part of 15 minutes. Alsop has 12 and has just reverse swept Bess for four.

3.02pm Huge shout from Patterson for lbw against Vince on 35 is turned down. Replays suggest it maybe should have been given. But the Yorkshire skipper is frustrated as a cover drive whistles to the fence almost immediately. Hampshire 70-3 in the 25th.

2.51pm Vince has just taken three fours off Thompson in the 22nd over of the innings, moving to 32. Hampshire are 61-3.

2.46pm Hampshire 49-3 in reply to 243. Vince 20 and Alsop 7. Patterson and Thompson searching for the breakthrough.

2.23pm Coad bowling to Vince with Duke stood up to the stumps. He has 11, with Hampshire 38-3 after 15 overs. First bit of blue sky has appeared.

2pm We’re up and running after lunch. Hampshire are 30-3 after nine overs, one bowled this afternoon by Coad, Patterson sharing immediate bowling duties.

Lunch Report Yorkshire added 46 runs to their overnight tally and were bowled out for 243 during a second morning against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl which ended with the hosts on 29-3.

The White Rose started the day on 197-6, with Dom Bess advancing from 45 to reach a 90-ball half-century and later 54.

Bess was one of the four Yorkshire wickets to fall, as were wicket-takers Matthew Fisher and Ben Coad.

Jordan Thompson was the first to go – two balls into the day – when he played on trying to leave pacer Brad Wheal alone (197-7 in the 87th over).

Bess reached his fifty before falling to the left-arm seam of Keith Barker, bowled off potentially a feather of an inside-edge as off and leg stumps were significantly disturbed, leaving the White Rose at 215-8 in the 96th.

Fisher added an important 17 before he fell as the first of two wickets in successive overs from the leg-spin of Mason Crane – both him and Coad trapped lbw, ending the innings in the 107th over.

To get to nearly 250 in challenging conditions was an excellent effort for Yorkshire, for whom Bess top-scored.

That theory was then strengthened within nine balls of the Hampshire reply when Coad trapped Ian Holland lbw and Fisher had the other opener Joe Weatherley brilliantly caught behind by a diving Harry Duke with one that nipped away. That left Hampshire at 1-2.

In the penultimate over of the morning, Coad then had left-handed Nick Gubbins caught at third slip by Harry Duke – 16-3 in the seventh.

Play has taken place with floodlights on all morning.

1.15pm – Lunch Hampshire are 29-3 after eight overs replying to Yorkshire 243 all out. Decent second morning for the visitors in which Bess reached 54 and Coad has taken two of the three wickets.

1.12pm WICKET Gubbins edges Coad to third slip (Brook), 15. Hampshire are 16-3 in the seventh.

12.49pm WICKET Fisher with the second wicket. Weatherley edges behind and Duke takes a smart diving catch behind the stumps. It’s 1-2 in the second.

12.47pm WICKET Coad traps Holland lbw for a golden duck. It’s 1-1 after one over of Hampshire’s reply.

12.33pm WICKET Innings comes to a close as Coad is lbw Crane for a golden duck. 243 all out.

12.27pm WICKET Fisher trapped lbw by the leg-spin of Crane, 17. Yorkshire are 239-9 after 105 overs. Patterson has 5 and has been joined by Coad.

12.18pm Yorkshire are 235-8 after 103 overs. Fisher 17 and Patterson 3.

11.49am WICKET An excellent 54 from Bess is ended – bowled by Barker. Looks like another inside edge, though not as obvious as Thompson’s. 215-8 in the 96th.

11.27am Bess reaches his half-century off 90 balls with 4×4s. Yorkshire are 212-7. Excellent innings.

11.02am WICKET! Thompson plays on to Wheal, trying to leave him alone. Wicket second ball of the day for Hampshire. 197-7.

11am Wheal to Thompson to get us underway, under the floodlights, at the start of day two. Yorkshire 197-6.

Good morning from the Ageas Bowl, where it is another overcast morning.

Yorkshire will begin the day on 197-6 following a superb effort in tricky conditions having been invited to bat first. Dom Bess top-scored with 45 not out, while Gary Ballance provided one of the many supporting acts with 42.

The players and coaches were definitely very pleased with the work done as they left the ground last night.

This game has the feeling of one which will include a 150 all out score at some point. We just have to hope that it is Hampshire who suffer that fate.

Hampshire bowled tightly without luck yesterday. If Bess, Jordan Thompson et al can get the White Rose up to 250 plus, that will be a brilliant effort.

Elsewhere in Division One, Warwickshire closed day one on 259-3 against Lancashire at Emirates Old Trafford thanks to centuries from debutant Chris Benjamin and Sam Hain. Nottinghamshire made 282-6 against Somerset at Taunton.

There will be a stream available for today’s action, which begins once again at 11am. Enjoy the day.
