Hill palmed the ball down and then kicked it at the stumps as the batter scrambled to make his ground. The attempt missed, with plenty of interest from the slips. Would have been interesting to see what the umpire’s decision would have been. 108-2 after 28 overs.

11.39am – WICKET! Thompson trapped lbw by Sanderson for a fine 53. 362 all out.

10.48am – There’s a bit more cloud around as we approach the start of play. But the sun still shines bright.

9.50am – Good morning from Wantage Road, where we’re all set for a full day’s play. You can’t say that with a great deal of certainty on many occasions in England, but today looks like one of the rare times you can.

Watch it rain at 11.30am now, hey!

Yorkshire will begin day two on 312-7 having had a good day yesterday. Adam Lyth scored a brilliant 109 – a determined effort to see off the new ball and progress on a difficult pitch.

Fingers crossed, Matthew Revis and Jordan Thompson can add another 50 or 60 this morning with the rest of the tail. Then it’s all about Vishwa Fernando and the bowlers.
