5.27pm – The Diamonds have lost by three runs at South North to dent their hopes of a Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy title defence.
5.21pm – The Diamonds need nine off the last over to beat the Vipers. It’s 253-4 chasing 262. Hollie Armitage with an unbeaten 103 and Leah Dobson 20 at the crease.
5.11pm – Matthew Fisher is back on the field. Derbyshire 48-1 in the 21st of 26 overs tonight.
5.04pm – Derbyshire are 40-1 after 19 overs, with Thompson and Bess in operation.
The Diamonds, meanwhile, need 44 off 35 balls at South North. They are 218-4 chasing 262. Armitage 85 not out.
4.30pm – WICKET! Bess – in his first over of the match – gets Wagstaff lbw, 9. It’s 24-1 in the 10th over. Brooke Guest in. Derbyshire chasing 571.
4.24pm – Derbyshire have moved to 19-0 in the ninth over of their second innings. There’s a total of 28 to bowl tonight.
Meanwhile, it’s tight one at South North, where the Diamonds are 159-3 in the 34th over chasing 262. Hollie Armitage is 58 not out.
3.58pm – Derbyshire are 6-0 in the second over of their second innings. 571 target. Coad and Hill are sharing the new ball against Came and Wagstaff.
3.42pm – WICKET! DECLARATION! Revis holes out to long-on off Thomson’s spin for a superb 106. It’s 520-9, and that’s it. Derbyshire will require 571 to win, with 26 overs remaining in the day.
3.38pm – HUNDRED! Revis reaches his second career century off 140 balls with 12x4s and 1x6s. Fabulous. Yorkshire 513-8, a lead of 563.
3.35pm – Yorkshire’s second innings continues after tea. Wagstaff to Revis on 98. It’s 511-8, a lead of 561.
3.16pm – Tea Report Yorkshire have taken their lead beyond 500 and have ground Derbyshire into the dirt during a one-sided third day at Scarborough.
The hosts are on course to complete the LV= Insurance County Championship double over Derbyshire and claim their second win of the season.
Yorkshire have progressed from 324-5 at lunch to 511-8 at tea, a lead of 561.
Never before have Derbyshire successfully chased more than 371 in a first-class match. Their record chase came in a one-wicket over the touring Australians in 1997.
Yorkshire’s innings has included five players passing 50; Fin Bean 64, Shan Masood 86, George Hill 79, Matthew Revis 98 not out and Jordan Thompson 64.
The latter four all moved to 50 during today’s play.
Any success Derbyshire’s bowlers have had today has been about limiting the damage.
After lunch, Hill and Dom Bess both departed, in the same over of leg-spin from Mitch Wagstaff. It was actually the youngster’s first over in first-team cricket across seven matches, leaving the score at 366-7 after 75 overs. Wagstaff had Hill caught at slip and Bess at cover.
Derbyshire have pretty much sent down a diet of spin today in a bid to improve their over-rate.
Thompson crashed four leg-side sixes in his innings as he and Revis shared 125 for the eighth wicket.
With Revis unbeaten on 98, it will be interesting to see whether Yorkshire bat on before tea or declare. They realistically had enough runs to win this game at lunchtime, never mind tea considering Derbyshire’s record chase is 371.
But the likelihood is that Yorkshire will be looking at an amount of overs they want to bowl for victory rather than a target.
2.56pm – We will be continuing through to 3.10pm before tea is taken. Derbyshire have rattled through their overs with spin today.
2.53pm – The Diamonds are 45-0 in the ninth over chasing 262 to beat the Vipers at South North CC.
2.48pm – WICKET! Yorkshire’s declaration – if it comes to that – will very much be about the amount of time they want to bowl rather than the target. They had enough at lunchtime realistically. But bowling workloads are managed these days, and that’s likely to be very much at the forefront of the captain and coaching staff’s minds. We’re 491-8 now – Thompson has just been caught at long-off against Thompson for 64. The lead is 541.
2.38pm – Thompson reaches his fifty off 67 balls with 4x4s and 2x6s. Excellent. This game was beyond Derbyshire long ago, and Yorkshire are now 463-7 with a lead of 513. Five overs remain in the afternoon.
2.01pm – Revis reaches his fifty off 85 balls with 6x4s and 1x6s. We’re 407-7, a lead of 457. Excellent.
1.57pm – SIX! Thompson has just slog swept Wagstaff over mid-wicket towards the marquee. He has 18 out of 399-7, a lead of 449. Revis 48.
1.54pm – The Diamonds are chasing 262 at South North. Southern Vipers made 261-8, including four wickets for Grace Hall and three for Lizzie Scott.
1.48pm – Yorkshire Academy wicketkeeper-batter Isaac Light, here at Scarborough on 12th man duties this week, bats in the nets at lunch today.
The Yorkshire Academy/Under 18s (Light turned 18 earlier this summer) have enjoyed a fine season. They finished top of their three-day Championship group and play at T20 Finals Day this Sunday.
1.33pm – WICKET! Bess has slapped Wagstaff to cover, 0. It’s 366-7 after 75 overs. Wagstaff strikes twice in his maiden over in first-team cricket.
1.32pm – WICKET! Hill caught at slip off Wagstaff’s leg-spin for a well made 70. It’s 366-6 in the 75th over, a lead of 416. Dom Bess in to join Revis, 35.
1.25pm – SIX! Revis hoists du Plooy over mid-wicket and moves to 34 out of 350-5, a lead of 400. Super stuff.
1.11pm – The afternoon session resumes with our lead at 374 (324-5). Derbyshire would already be chasing more than their highest ever successful chase, which is 371.
12.54pm – The Southern Vipers are 174-3 after 37 overs at Gosforth, where Lizzie Scott, Grace Hall and Phoebe Turner have all struck once apiece.
12.32pm – Lunch Report Shan Masood’s 86 against his former county has underpinned serene Yorkshire progress with the bat on day three against Derbyshire as the hosts chase an LV= Insurance County Championship victory at Scarborough.
Yorkshire have advanced their second innings from 179-2 overnight – a lead of 229 – to reach lunch at 324-5, a lead of 374.
While James Wharton for 38, captain Masood and Jonny Tattersall for 15 have fallen in the morning, runs have come freely amidst Yorkshire dominance, including George Hill’s unbeaten 50.
Masood, 41 overnight, moved to 50 in 53 balls but was the victim of a brilliant one-handed return catch from off-spinner Alex Thomson.
Wharton had earlier been caught at slip off the pace of Sam Conners, while Thomson later trapped Tattersall lbw as the score fell to 272-5 after 58 overs.
Wharton and Masood had shared 107 for the third wicket, and all-round duo Hill and Matthew Revis added an unbroken 52 through to lunch.
Hill reached a run-a-ball fifty in the final over of the morning and Revis will begin the afternoon on 22.
12.29pm – Hill reaches a run-a-ball fifty with 7x4s. 324-5. Fine knock.
12.28pm – Fifty stand between Hill 48 and Revis 22. We’re 322-5, a lead of 372 as we approach lunch.
11.56am – WICKET! Thomson gets Tattersall lbw for 15. It’s 272-5, a lead of 322. Matthew Revis in to join Hill, 21.
11.31am – WICKET! Masood sharply caught and bowled by off-spinner Alex Thomson, who has just come into the attack. Falls for an excellent 86. It’s 238-4, a lead of 288. Jonny Tattersall in to join Hill, 2.
11.23am – The Southern Vipers are 63-1 in the 14th over against the Diamonds at South North.
Here at Scarborough, we’ve moved to 235-3, a lead of 285. Masood has 85.
11.14am – WICKET! Wharton caught slip by Madsen off Conners for 38. We’re 223-3, a lead of 273. George Hill in to join Masood, who has 75.
10.47am – Shan Masood has reached his fifty off 53 balls with 5x4s and 2x6s. We have moved to 190-2, a lead of 240.
10.30am – The players are on their way to the middle. We will resume on 179-2 in the second innings, leading by 229. Masood 41 and Wharton 29.
10.18am – The Southern Vipers have won the toss and elected to bat in today’s RHF Trophy game at South North.
8.35am – Good morning from North Marine Road, where Yorkshire will begin a sunny third day on 179-2 in their second innings, leading by 229.
Yesterday was a dominant day for the hosts, who shone with ball and then bat from lunchtime onwards to take control of a fixture which will hopefully yield our second Championship win of the summer – and second against Derbyshire.
Shan Masood and James Wharton will begin the day on 41 and 29 respectively.
Today is a busy old day for the club, with the Northern Diamonds returning to Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy action against Southern Vipers at South Northumberland in Gosforth. Yorkshire’s seconds are also in action against Lancashire at Southport, where they dominated the opening day of four with 443 all out. There were half-centuries for Luxton, Shetty, Kelly and Milnes, the latter top-scoring with 91 from number eight.
