MATCH CENTRE 

6.15pm – Close. What a day that was. Yorkshire finish on 179-2 from 38 overs of the second innings, leading by 229. Three wickets each for Fisher and Thompson, 64 for Bean and unbeaten duo Wharton and Masood with 29 and 41.

5.56pm – Five overs remaining in the day, and we’re 147-2 after 33 – a lead of 197. Wharton 21, Masood 19.

5.44pm – SIX! Wondering whether we’ve written something that Shan doesn’t like, as the skipper hoists a six off Thomson which narrowly misses the press box! Super shot. It’s 136-2 after 30 overs, and we lead by 186.

5.22pm – WICKET! Bean run out backing up by Thomson, who got a hand on a firm Wharton drive. Falls for a fine 64. It’s 116-2 in the 25th over. We lead by 166. Shan Masood in to join Wharton, 9.

5.04pm – WICKET! Lyth caught slip off Thomson’s off-spin for 43. It’s 100-1 in the 21st over. We lead by 150. James Wharton in to join Bean, who has 57.

4.56pm – Bean reaches his fifty off 61 balls with 9x4s. Excellent. We are 90-0 in the 18th over, leading by 140.

4.53pm – Bean has moved to 49 out of 87-0 after 17 overs. Lyth has 38, and we lead by 130. Twenty one more overs to come this evening.

4.32pm – Lyth and Bean, 20 and 30, have brought up another fifty partnership. That’s their sixth in a row in the Championship, including two century stands. We are 50-0 and lead by 100. Super stuff.

4.17pm – We’ve moved to 34-0 in the ninth over of 38 to come tonight. Lyth 18 and Bean 16, and we lead by 84.

3.44pm – Our second innings is about to begin. Lyth will face Chappell, and we lead by 50.

3.30pm – Tea Report Yorkshire enjoyed a seven-star second afternoon at Scarborough as Derbyshire were bowled out for 247 in their first-innings reply to 297. 

The visitors fell from the health of 173-3 after lunch to concede a lead of 50. Tea has been taken early, and there are 38 overs still to be bowled in the day. 

Matthew Fisher was the afternoon’s standout bowler, shining during a five-over spell of 2-16. He bowled Matt Lamb and Anuj Dal, beating both for pace with deliveries which kept low, and finished with 3-54 from 16 overs. 

Jordan Thompson bettered those figures with 3-48 from 20.1, including two afternoon wickets. George Hill and Matthew Revis twice also struck.

Hill had Wayne Madsen caught in the gully for an excellent 93. 

Madsen started the afternoon by completing a fourth-wicket stand of 70 with his captain Leus du Plooy, who made 30 before being caught at first slip off Thompson – 173-4.

Fisher then removed Lamb and Dal during his fiery burst before Revis bowled Alex Thomson through the gate with a nip-backer and Hill got Madsen, leaving the score at 209-8 in the 68th over.

Zak Chappell and Sam Conners – 20 and 15 – then added some useful runs for Derbyshire with some lusty hitting. 

But both were caught trying to attack late in the afternoon. Conners was caught behind off a top-edged pull at Revis before Chappell failed to clear Shan Masood at mid-off against Thompson.  

3.25pm – WICKET! Chappell caught by Masood back-pedalling from mid-off against Thompson, 20. Derbyshire are all out for 247.

3.19pm – WICKET! Revis gets Conners caught behind off a top-edged pull, 15. Derbyshire are 247-9, trailing by 50.

3.12pm – After the flurry of wickets has come a frustrating but entertaining partnership. Conners and Chappell are wielding the willow successfully. They have advanced their side to 245-8. Chappell 19, Conners 15.

2.51pm – WICKET! Madsen caught at gully by Bean off Hill for a fine 93. Derbyshire have fallen to 209-8.

2.46pm – WICKET! Thomson bowled through the gate by Revis, 6. It’s 209-7 in the 67th over.

2.40pm – Revis has replaced Fisher in the attack after an excellent five-over spell of 2-16. Fisher has really stalled Derbyshire, who are 208-6. Madsen has crept through the eighties. He is 92.

2.11pm – WICKET! Fisher bowls Dal, disturbing middle stump this time. Again, beaten for pace and kept low. It’s 193-6 in the 59th over.

2.03pm – WICKET! Fisher uproots Lamb’s off-stump, beating him for pace with a delivery which also seemed to keep low, 10. It’s 191-5 in the 57th.

1.47pm – Madsen has just driven Coad down the ground for four. Shot of the day so far, and he has 78. Derbyshire are 177-4, trailing by 120.

1.35pm – WICKET! Du Plooy caught low down at first slip by Hill off Thompson, 30. It’s 173-4 in the 51st over. Madsen still there on 74.

1.15pm – Up and running after lunch. Coad to Madsen, who has moved to 60 out of 153-3 with an early boundary.

12.34pm – Lunch Report Jordan Thompson struck in the second day’s opening over, and Matthew Fisher also claimed a wicket. But Derbyshire will be happier with their morning’s work thanks to fifties for Mitch Wagstaff and Wayne Madsen at Scarborough.

Replying to Yorkshire’s first-innings 297 all out, Derbyshire slipped to 0-1 last night. They resumed this morning on 47-1 and have since reached lunch at 149-3 from 45 overs. 

Batters young and old – Wagstaff and Madsen – have been their key contributors with 52 and 56 not out respectively.

Thompson had Brooke Guest caught behind six balls into day two of this LV= Insurance County Championship fixture at a sunny North Marine Road – 47-2.

Wagstaff, 20-years-old and 32 not out overnight, then moved to his maiden first-team fifty off 99 balls before miscueing a pull at Fisher to square-leg.

That left Derbyshire at 103-3 in the 33rd over. But Madsen, aged 39, followed his younger colleague to a fifty off 67 balls, including a lofted six off Ben Coad over long-on. 

Thompson thought he had Derbyshire captain Leus du Plooy caught behind on 20, only for umpire Neil Pratt to turn down the convincing appeal. Du Plooy will begin the afternoon on 24, with his side 148 in arrears. 

12.18pm – Huge appeal for caught behind from Thompson against du Plooy on 20. Everyone was convinced but umpire Neil Pratt. Not out, and it’s 135-3.

Ah, now it’s 139-3 as Madsen reaches his fifty off 67 balls.

12.07pm – Wayne Madsen is closing in on a half-century. He has 46 out of 128-3 from 39 overs. Matthew Revis into the attack for the first time.

11.40am – WICKET! Wagstaff caught at square-leg by Revis off a miscued pull at Fisher. He falls for 52, and it’s 103-3 in the 33rd over. Key partnership coming up for visitors as Leus du Plooy joins Madsen, 34.

11.35am – Wagstaff reaches his maiden half-century in his second first-class game off 99 balls with 11x4s., and he’s played nicely. Derbyshire are 102-2 in the 32nd over.

11.22am – Madsen has hit Fisher for three fours in a row at the start of the 29th over, moving to 32. Derbyshire are 88-2.

11.14am – And George Hill follows, in place of Jordan Thompson. 71-2 now.

11.10am – Matthew Fisher on in place of Ben Coad. Derbyshire are 67-2.

11.02am – Derbyshire have steadied following the early loss of Brooke Guest. Mitch Wagstaff 37 and Wayne Madsen 11 have taken their side to 63-2.

10.36am – Matt Milnes and Mickey Edwards are both playing for Yorkshire’s second team in the Roses Championship match at Southport today. Fantastic news.

10.35am – WICKET! Guest caught behind off Thompson in the day’s first over for 13. Derbyshire are 47-2 in the 18th over.

10.31am – We’re underway, with Jordan Thompson bowling to Brooke Guest. Derbyshire 47-1 in the 18th over replying to 297.

10.27am – The players are on their way out to the middle here at North Marine Road.

8.35am – Yesterday’s opening day was hard fought and pretty even, with Derbyshire trailing by 250 with nine wickets left.

A successful morning with the ball today will see Yorkshire take this game by the scruff of the neck. But Derbyshire have got the armoury with the bat to press ahead, as we saw at Chesterfield in June when Leus du Plooy scored a big hundred to make Shan Masood’s side sweat.

Day One was a touch frustrating from Yorkshire’s point of view. There was quite a lot of talk in the press box early on that 300 looked like it could be a good score, and that’s pretty much where the hosts ended up. But they could have posted more, with a number of batters getting starts but not going on.

James Wharton stood out with 58 as Anuj Dal claimed five wickets. Apparently, he is the first ever Derbyshire seamer to take five wickets at Scarborough. If that’s wrong, direct your complaints to Derbyshire stats guru Dave Griffin!!
