6.36pm – Close. Yorkshire have reached 312-7 from 96 overs, Lyth’s 109 the feature. Revis and Thompson finish the day unbeaten on 18 and 14 respectively. That’s a very respectable score for Yorkshire, despite the evening collapse.

6.24pm – Batting point number two in the bag at 301-7 after 93 overs. Revis 14, Thompson 7.

6.18pm – We have five overs remaining in the day. We’ve moved to 296-7 after 91 overs. Revis 10, Thompson 6.

5.57pm – WICKET! Tattersall caught at second slip by Gay off Procter, 14. 281-7.

5.45pm – WICKET! Luxton caught at second slip by Gay off Procter, 12. 268-6 in the 84th over.

5.26pm – WICKET! Wharton bowled by Keogh on the pull, the ball ricocheting onto his stumps off his thigh, 21. It’s 249-5. Tattersall in now.

5.19pm – SIX! Wharton shimmies down the pitch and hammers Keogh’s off-spin down the ground. Great shot. 247-4 after 78. He has 20.

5.13pm – WICKET! Hill trapped lbw by Kaul, 8. Yorkshire 239-4 in the 77th. Luxton in now to join Wharton, 13.

Masood 50

3.51pm – WICKET! Lyth caught and bowled by Procter for a brilliant 109. Miscued push back down the pitch. We’re 202-2 in the 61st over. Picture by John Heald.

Adam Lyth

3.41pm – HUNDRED! Lyth reaches his third of the season off 193 balls with 10x4s. Outstanding. He’s helped the score to 188-1 in the 59th over.

Lyth 100 Northants

3.37pm – Masood has faced an eventful first over from Keogh, the Northamptonshire off-spinner. He has a huge appeal for lbw turned down one ball – you’ve seen them given – and next ball survives a missed stumping from McManus. Both on 42. Yorkshire 184-1 with Lyth 99 after 58 overs.

3.18pm – Lyth on 91 out of 163-1 in the 53rd over. Yorkshire couldn’t have asked for a better start here. Masood has 32.

2.54pm – Lyth and Masood have shared a half-century partnership for the second wicket – 136-1 after 47 overs. Excellent work from Yorkshire’s top order so far. Lyth 78, Masood 19.

2.45pm – Yorkshire continue to steadily build a platform here. We’ve moved to 129-1 in the 45th over. Lyth 75 and Masood 15.

2.25pm – We’ve moved to 114-1 in the 41st over. Lyth 69, Masood 11.

2.05pm – Life for Masood on 7 as he’s dropped at second by Gay off Procter. It’s 102-1 in the 36th.

2.04pm – Yorkshire 102-1 in the 35th over. Lyth 61, Masood 7.

1.42pm – We’re set for the resumption after lunch. Yorkshire 90-1 after 29 overs. Procter to Masood, who has 3. Lyth 57.

1.34pm – Matthew Fisher is here and having a bowl with a white ball. Fingers crossed, he will be ready for the Blast next week.

1.03pm – Lunch. Yorkshire have reached the break at 90-1 from 29 overs. That’s a very encouraging first session having been inserted on a green pitch. Lyth 57, Masood 3.

Lunch 1 Northants

12.56pm – WICKET! Bean bowled by Broad, 18. It’s 86-1 in the 28th over. Masood in now alongside Lyth, who has 56. Bean was undone by an in-ducker which bowled him through the gate.

12.42pm – Lyth reaches his fifty off 82 balls with 6x4s. Excellent. 78-0 in the 24th over.

Lyth 50 Northants

12.36pm – Yorkshire 64-0 in the 23rd over. Lyth 36, Bean 16.

12.26pm – Yorkshire 50-0 after 20 overs. Lyth 25, Bean 15. The sun is out at Wantage Road now after a cloudy start.

12.13pm – Adam Lyth and Fin Bean prepare to open the batting this morning. Yorkshire 45-0 in the 18th over. Lyth 24 and Bean 12. Lyth has gone beyond 14,000 first-class runs in the opening 75 minutes of play.

Lyth and Bean

11.54am – Yorkshire will be delighted with this start. It’s 35-0 in the 13th over.

11.47am – Northamptonshire still searching for the morning breakthrough. Yorkshire 23-0 after 11. Lyth 12, Bean 8.

11.28am – Batting looks far from straightforwards. There’s been a number of lbw appeal, most of them stifled, and a couple of edges and miscues which have fallen just short of fielders. Yorkshire 12-0 in the seventh.

11.16am – Lyth has driven the first boundary through the covers, off seamer White. Yorkshire 9-0 in the fourth over.

10.59am – The live stream link is available at the top of the page.

10.58am – Sanderson is taking the new ball for Northamptonshire to get us going. Lyth on strike.

10.31am – Yorkshire have lost the toss and have been invited to bat.

Yorkshire: Bean, Lyth, Masood c, Wharton, Luxton, Hill, Tattersall w, Revis, Thompson, Leech, Fernando.

10.06am – The pitch remains untouched following our first update. The one being used is also quite a long way across to the scoreboard side of this ground, so we have one boundary which is significantly shorter than the other.

9.25am – Good morning from Wantage Road, a dry and bright Wantage Road no less. We’re all set for a start on time at 11am.

Right now, the pitch has a significant green tinge to it. That may mean little in the sense that the ground-staff may yet mow it before the start of play, and even then one of the locals in the media has said that a green look can often mean it still favours the bat. We shall see.

Vishwa Fernando is just heading out to start his warm-ups ahead of a debut. Adam Lyth, who plays his 200th Championship match, is already out there.

Yorkshire are looking to bounce back from Sunday’s defeat against Sussex at Hove, their second defeat added to four draws so far this summer. Northamptonshire are also searching for their first win. They have drawn five and lost one.

This is the last four-day fixture until late June. Until then, we will be turning our attentions to the start of the Vitality Blast.

We previewed this game with George Hill, who has had personal success on this ground in the past, and Ottis Gibson. You can read it via the link below.

Preview 

Hopefully, the live stream will be available via the Match Centre tab at the top of the page. If not, we will advise closer to the start of play. Enjoy the day.
