Dal stumped off Bess for 38. Derbyshire are 293 all out, and we have won by 277 runs, claiming 20 points. Fabulous performance this week.

2.14pm – WICKET! Conners caught at long-leg by sub fielder Cliff following a top-edged pull at Revis, 1. It’s 293-9.

2.05pm – WICKET! Yorkshire have been going short at Chappell, who has got hold of a few. But he miscues a pull at Revis to Bess, who takes a really good tumbling catch at square-leg, 33. It’s 289-8.

1.56pm – Derbyshire have advanced to 268-7 in the 67th over. Dal has 32 and Chappell 17. They’ve added 57 for the eighth wicket.

1.34pm – We can now clearly forget that 571 target, but Anuj Dal and Zak Chappell have taken the score to 240-7 as they face up to Revis and Bess.

1.16pm – WICKET! Thomson caught behind off Revis, 4. It’s 211-7.

1.14pm – We’re up and running after lunch. Derbyshire are 210-6 in the opening over of the afternoon, bowled by Revis. They are chasing 571.

12.36pm – Lunch Report Jordan Thompson and Dom Bess struck twice apiece late in the morning session to keep Yorkshire on course for a final day victory over Derbyshire at Scarborough.

The hosts are chasing the season’s double over Derbyshire in the LV= Insurance County Championship, and they took four wickets for three runs as Derbyshire reached lunch on 206-6, slipping from 198-2.  

They are chasing 571 to win and started the day on 65-1. Ben Coad had Brooke Guest caught at second slip three overs into the day, leaving the score at 71-2.

But Wayne Madsen hit a brilliant 93 off 71 balls, including three sixes, to threaten Yorkshire’s dominance, backed up by a much more reserved 58 from opener Harry Came. 

They shared 127 inside 21 overs for the third wicket. But both fell in successive overs to end any flicker of hope Derbyshire may have had of chasing the target.

The way Madsen was playing certainly made you think the visiting dressing room believed they could.

But Thompson trapped Came lbw with a full ball before Bess also trapped a sweeping Madsen in front, leaving the score at 198-4 in the 50th over. 

Bess’s previous over had been taken for 22 by Madsen, including four fours and a six. But revenge was timely as far as Yorkshire were concerned.

Bess also trapped Leus du Plooy lbw in the over after Madsen’s departure before Thompson had Matt Lamb caught behind off the inside edge in the next, leaving the score at 201-6 in the 53rd over. 

12.25pm – WICKET! Thompson gets Lamb caught behind off inside edge. It’s 201-6.

12.23pm – WICKET! Yorkshire on the charge now. Du Plooy trapped lbw by Bess, 0. It’s 201-5 after 52.

12.13pm – WICKET! Madsen trapped lbw sweeping at Bess, 93. Derbyshire are 198-4 in the 50th over. Huge wicket.

12.09pm – WICKET! Came trapped lbw by Thompson, 58. It’s 198-3 in the 49th over. Madsen still there on 93, and he’s joined by Leus du Plooy.

12.02pm – Madsen is playing one heck of an innings here. He’s 80 not out off 66 balls, including three sixes. Derbyshire are 184-2 in the 48th over. Whether you think it’s realistic that Derbyshire can chase 571 or not, he certainly thinks they can.

11.49am – Derbyshire are 173-2, with Madsen 70 and Came 56 having shared a century partnership.

11.44am – Madsen reaches his fifty off 48 balls with 8x4s and 1x6s. Derbyshire are 159-2 in the 43rd over. They are chasing 571. He’s hit the first three balls of the ongoing over, off Thompson, for four. 

11.24am – Derbyshire’s opener Harry Came has just reached his fifty off 116 balls with 8x4s. He has helped their score to 133-2 in the 38th over. Madsen is 34 not out.

11.01am – Some news from the Yorkshire dressing room. Matthew Fisher has a mild side strain and will not take any further part in this game.

10.40am – WICKET! Guest caught at second slip by Lyth off Coad, 20. Derbyshire are 71-2 in the 29th over. 571 target.

10.30am – We’re all set for the off here at North Marine Road. Ben Coad will bowl to Brooke Guest. Derbyshire 65-1 chasing 517. Matthew Fisher isn’t on the field.

8.35am – Good morning from Scarbados, where it is an overcast but dry morning ahead of day four.

Yorkshire have dominated this game pretty much from the off, and are well on the way to a deserved victory. Fingers crossed the departure from the wall to wall sunshine of the last three days can help the bowlers this morning. Fingers crossed also, that Matthew Fisher is fit to bowl.

Derbyshire captain Leus du Plooy was talking last night about the possibility of them winning this game, never mind saving it. Surely they can’t chase 571. Even with a short boundary, the time available just isn’t there.

If Yorkshire can take three or four morning wickets, you feel they will have broken the back of this challenge. If those include the likes of du Plooy and Wayne Madsen, it could go quite quickly.

But, equally, Derbyshire have every chance of saving the game. If those two experienced heads can bat the bulk of the day with help from others such as Brooke Guest, they could frustrate Yorkshire. Let’s hope not.

Matthew Revis scored a superb 106 yesterday, his second Championship century.
