1pm – Lunch Report Adam Lyth and Fin Bean continued their superb form at the top of Yorkshire’s order to help ensure an excellent start to the LV= Insurance County Championship clash with Division Two leaders Durham at Scarborough.

Having been inserted under an unsettled sky, Yorkshire reached lunch at 113-0 after 29 overs, including Lyth’s 57 and Bean’s 46. 

Lyth and Bean shared their second century partnership in three matches, following 177 in the draw at Worcestershire earlier this month. Last week, against Sussex at Headingley, they also shared 94. 

Ben Raine had a couple of confident lbw shouts against Lyth turned down in the opening over, but Durham have largely failed to build pressure – not finding the right lines and lengths.

Lyth has driven well and reached his fifty off 78 balls, while Bean has cut with confidence. The pair took 17 from the penultimate over of the morning, from Netherlands international Bas de Leede.

Dawid Malan misses this game due to rest. Matthew Revis has taken his place. 

12.54pm – Lyth reaches a fine fifty off 78 balls with 8x4s. And that’s another century partnership between him and Bean, who has 42. It’s 102-0 in the 28th. Super stuff.

12.42pm – The Northern Diamonds Academy are in T20 action at the Regional Festival at Millfield School in Taunton. They’re playing the first of three T20 games in the next two days building up to Finals Day on Thursday. The Southern Vipers are 68-0 in the 10th over in game one.

Here at Scarborough, Yorkshire have moved to 84-0 in the 26th over. Bean 41 and Lyth 38.

Meanwhile, in Division One at Edgbaston, Warwickshire have been bowled out for 60 by Middlesex. Ethan Bamber finished with 5-20.

12.23pm – Yorkshire 76-0 after 20 overs. Lyth has 38 and Bean 33.

11.54am – We’ve moved to 52-0 in the 14th over, with Lyth 29 and Bean 20. The latter has just nailed a cut off Raine for four. Durham have had a couple of lbw shouts, but they haven’t quite got their line or length right yet.

11.41am – Yorkshire have moved to 42-0 after 10 overs as Durham make their first change of the day, bringing on South African seamer Migael Pretorius to replace Raine. Lyth 24 and Bean 15.

11.21am – Excellent opening 20 minutes for Yorkshire, who are 27-0 in the sixth over. Adam Lyth has 19 and has been driving for fun after surviving a couple of early lbw shouts.

10.58am – All set for the off here at Scarborough. Ben Raine has the new ball and Adam Lyth is on strike.

10.53am –

10.30am – Durham have won the toss and will bowl first.

Yorkshire: Lyth, Bean, Rickelton, Revis, Hill, Tattersall c&w, Thompson, Fisher, Coad, Steketee, Moriarty. 

Durham: Lees, Jones, Borthwick c, Bedingham, Pretorius, Robinson w, Clark, Potts, de Leede, Raine, Parkinson. 

10.09am – 20 minutes away from the toss, and it’s a glorious morning. The outfield is a vive of activity – a couple of football games ongoing. Much more importantly, Matt Milnes is having a bat in the nets as his recovery from a back stress fracture continues at pace. He is hoping to be back in first-team action in September.

8.57am – Good morning from North Marine Road, where the sun is shining ahead of our clash with runaway Division Two leaders Durham, who have won five of 10 matches so far.

Yorkshire come into this one bidding for win number two from 10. Jonny Tattersall and co have played some excellent cricket during the last couple of weeks against Worcestershire and Sussex but weather had the final say.

Mark Steketee and Ryan Rickelton play the final game of their overseas stints, with the pace and bounce on offer here seemingly ideally suited to Queensland quick Steketee. Fingers crossed, that proves correct.

Darren Gough, Harry Chathli, Jane Powell and Bill Mustoe are currently opening the newly refurbished West Stand here at the ground. The wooden seating has been replaced by plastic seating.
