Yorkshire opener Fin Bean said:
“The nerves were going, but it was good to get out there with Lythy, who I’ve watched.
“It was good to get a few games in the Royal London to break me into first-team cricket. I wasn’t really expecting to be playing here, but I got the nod and have thankfully done alright.
“It was nipping about a bit early doors, and there was a bit of variable bounce. The lads think the pitch has got slower, and it’s harder to score boundaries, especially when the ball has gone softer. It’s about being patient.
“In the second team, I needed a big score to get a contract. But this innings shows that I can play at this level, which is a big thing for a young player.”

Tea Report Fin Bean and George Hill shared a 63-run partnership for the second wicket to help Yorkshire respond encouragingly to Lancashire’s first-innings 276 on day two at Emirates Old Trafford.
After overnight and morning rain, play finally got underway at 12.55pm, with 76 overs to be bowled.
Jordan Thompson and Ben Coad struck as Lancashire, 272-8 overnight, were bowled out for 276 inside five overs of play. Thompson had wicketkeeper George Lavelle caught behind before Coad (3-20) trapped Matt Parkinson lbw.
First-class debutant Bean and bowling star Hill, who finished with 6-26 having not bowled today, then ensured a positive start to Yorkshire’s reply despite Adam Lyth’s early departure, the hosts reaching tea at 76-2 after 31 overs. Bean will begin the evening session on 31.
Lyth was caught at short-leg off the seam of New Zealander Will Williams for 13, leaving Yorkshire 13-1 after six overs.
Bean and Hill then batted confidently through the second half of the afternoon, both youngsters hitting well down the ground.
Bean hit two boundaries in three balls off Williams before Hill, for 32, was bowled by a beauty of a leg-spinner from Parkinson shortly before tea, leaving Yorkshire at 76-2 in the 29th.
Tom Kohler-Cadmore is yet to get off the mark.

8.55am If you want to recap yesterday’s action, you can do so via our match report and reaction piece with George Hill, which are linked below.
Good morning from Emirates Old Trafford, where it has just started raining ahead of day two of the Roses clash.
What an evening session it was for Yorkshire yesterday, as George Hill took five of seven wickets to fall. In all, Lancashire slipped from 180-0 to 272-8 at close, Hill finishing with 6-26.
In terms of the overall picture of the game, it is probably about evens at the moment.
For large parts of the day yesterday, the pitch looked flat – a little slow maybe. But the loss of eight for 92 left you thinking it is maybe a bit worse than first thought.
Still, Yorkshire have every chance of pressing ahead in this game.
Just as I type, it has started raining and the ground staff are scurrying to put the covers on. Fingers crossed, it is just a passing shower which has no impact on the 10.30am start time.
As impressive as Hill and Lancashire centurion Keaton Jennings were yesterday, so too was Tom Kohler-Cadmore at slip. He claimed three catches, including a fabulous diving effort to get rid of Dane Vilas – one handed going to his left.
We shall keep you updated with the prospects of play over the next hour or so.
There will be a live stream available as per usual. Enjoy the day.
