3.07pm – WICKET! Hill caught behind off Kaul, 4. Yorkshire 146-5, a lead of 207.

2.59pm – WICKET! Wharton lbw Broad as he played to leg, 20. Yorkshire 135-4 in the 36th over.

2.57pm – SIX! Masood pulls Kaul twice over mid-wicket in as many balls. Super stuff. He has 73 out of 135-3, a lead of 196.

2.47pm – SIX! Masood lofts Keogh over long-off, moving to 63. 125-3 after 33 overs – a lead of 186. Super stuff.

2.38pm – The ball from Sanderson didn’t actually strike his right wrist. But in playing and missing, it looked like he got his left wrist into a strange position. Maybe more of a hyper-extension injury. Difficult one to explain. He’s continuing though.

2.33pm – We have just had a delay as Masood on 57 received treatment having been struck on the wrist. Yorkshire 114-3, a lead of 175. Masood faces a couple more balls and he’s in need of more treatment.

2.14pm – Masood reaches a fine fifty off 72 balls with 5x4s and 1x6s. We’ve moved to 96-3 in the 26th over. Lead of 157.

1.49pm – WICKET! Lyth trapped lbw by Kaul, 33. Yorkshire 68-3 in the 20th over, a lead of 129. Wharton in now.

1.43pm – Yorkshire 63-2 in the 19th over, a lead of 124. Lyth 33, Masood 27.

1.39pm – Yorkshire 51-2 after 17 overs – our lead is 112. Lyth 32, Masood 18.

12.02pm – Back-to-back boundaries for Masood, both late cut to backward point off Kaul. he has 10 of 35-2. The floodlights are on now. Yorkshire’s lead is 96.

11.53am – The umpires, you sense, are starting to get a bit twitchy with the weather. It does like we may not be a million miles away from some more rain. Yorkshire 25-2, a lead of 86.

11.43am – Yorkshire 22-2 in the eight over, a lead of 83. Lyth 20, Masood 2.

11.23am – WICKET! Bean caught behind off Sanderson, 0. We’re 8-2, leading by 69. Masood in now.

11.14am – The players are in the middle and ready to go. Bean to face Sanderson. Yorkshire 0-1 after three balls, leading by 61 in their second innings.

11.02am – We will be underway at 11.15am here at Wantage Road.

10.50am – There will be an inspection at 10.55am here at Wantage Road.

10.39am – The rain has stopped now, and the players are on their way out to resume their warm-ups. Whether we start on time at 11am is in question.

10.22am – The rain is falling at Wantage Road now. The ground-staff are putting the covers on.

9.20am – Good morning from Wantage Road, where it’s an overcast start to day three. There has been some overnight rain, but hopefully not enough to threaten a start on time at 11am. The ground-staff are mopping up as we speak.

In truth, it would be a surprise to see us get the full allocation of 96 overs in today. There has been talk for a couple of days now that Sunday and Monday aren’t great forecasts. There is also the light to factor in. The sun is nowhere to be seen. It’s fine now, but it might not be come 5pm or 6pm.

Yorkshire have to clear their heads. Yesterday evening was a horrible session for them, as Northamptonshire, replying to 362 in the first innings, advanced from 181-7 to 301 all out and then struck once with the ball in the final over of the day, leaving the visitors at 0-1.

Shan Masood was a frustrated man at close, calling on his side to be more clinical. You can read his thoughts in our reaction piece, which is linked below – as is yesterday’s match report.

Match Report Shan Masood 

There were positives yesterday, despite the late frustration. Jordan Thompson was good with the bat, Matthew Revis with the ball and Vishwa Fernando too.

More positives for a prolonged period today – as long as the weather holds – and Yorkshire could be in business.
