Steve Patterson said

“After the disappointment of our first-innings bowling and the way we batted, it was vitally important that we had a bit of a fightback in that last session.

“We performed well, and if we start well in the morning we’re right back in the mix.

“It’s a pitch which offers a bit with the new ball, and when the ball gets older it’s a nice surface to bat on. It’s just about limiting the damage with the new ball. Unfortunately, today, we didn’t occupy the crease for long enough. By the time the ball got older, we weren’t in a position of strength.

“We’ve still got a newish ball in the morning. We have to try and make the most of that.”

6.44pm Close. Sixteen wickets fall on day two as Glamorgan close on 68-4 from 29 overs in their second innings, leading by 205. Root 25 and Cooke 17.

6.28pm Five overs remain in this day which has seen 16 wickets fall. Glamorgan are 56-4, leading by 193.

6.03pm Glamorgan have advanced to 48-4 after 17 overs of 29 to be bowled tonight. 185 lead with Root 16 and Cooke 8.

5.28pm Carlson caught behind off Coad. 29-4!!!!

5.26pm Coad gets Lloyd caught at third slip by Brook, and it’s 29-3. Glamorgan lead by 166. Game on!

5.11pm Balbirnie gone! Caught at third slip superbly by Brook off Olivier, diving to his right – good height but going very quickly. Glamorgan 17-2, leading by 154.

4.53pm Is the fightback on? Coad gets Selman caught behind. 0-1 after five balls, Glamorgan lead by 137.

Tea Report Adam Lyth and Harry Brook fell for 52 and 40 during a disappointing second afternoon for Yorkshire against Glamorgan at Emerald Headingley, with the hosts bowled out for 193.

Replying to 330 in the first innings of this Group Three LV= Insurance County Championship, Yorkshire fell from 65-2 at lunch to 175-9 and only just avoided the follow-on by passing 181 thanks to Dom Bess, who finished unbeaten on 38.

Lyth, Brook, Joe Root for 16, Jonny Tattersall and Matthew Fisher, Steve Patterson, Ben Coad and Duanne Olivier all fell in the afternoon session as the visitors seized control of the fixture with a 137-run lead.

Lyth was lbw to Dan Douthwaite and Root caught at mid-off having miscued a full toss from off-spinner Callum Taylor (79-4).

Tattersall was then trapped lbw by Timm van der Gugten before Brook fell the same way to David Lloyd’s medium pace.

And when Fisher edged left-arm seamer Jamie McIlroy behind, Yorkshire were 160-7 and well below par.

Patterson edged Lloyd to second slip and Coad uppercut Douthwaite to third-man, leaving Yorkshire at 175-9 and six runs short of the follow-on with Bess and Duanne Olivier at the crease.

Bess managed to get Yorkshire over that particular hurdle before Taylor had Olivier caught behind to signal tea.

4.34pm Olivier gone! He’s been caught behind off Taylor, and Yorkshire are 193 all out, trailing by 137. Bess 38 not out, and that’s tea.

4.01pm Yorkshire 175-9, needing six more to avoid the follow-on. Coad caught at third-man following an uppercut.

3.52pm Patterson gone! He’s been caught at second slip by Selman off Lloyd, 3. Yorkshire are 167-8, needing 14 more to avoid the follow-on.

3.13pm Yorkshire in bother now at 149-6 as Brook is lbw to Lloyd for 40.

2.52pm Ah, just as the recovery was starting to gather steam, van der Gugten traps Tattersall lbw for 15. Stand of 50 with Brook (33 not out) broken, and Yorkshire are 129-5 after 37.

2.37pm Yorkshire 116-4 after 34 overs. Brook has 21 and Tattersall 14.

1.58pm Root gone! He’s miscued a full toss from off-spinner Taylor and been caught by mid-off (Douthwaite) running back. Gone for 16, and Yorkshire are 79-4.

1.52pm Lyth has been trapped lbw by Douthwaite for 52, and Yorkshire are 79-3 in the 24th. In the previous over, both batsmen, Lyth and Root, survived when Root smashed an uppish drive back at off-spinner Taylor, who couldn’t hold onto the sharp chance but deflected it onto the stumps at the non-striker’s end. The appeal for a run out, with Lyth potentially short of his ground, was turned down by an unsighted umpire Paul Baldwin.

1.45pm Lyth reaches 50 off 66 balls with 11×4s. Fine knock, and Yorkshire are recovering from the two early wickets. They are 75-2, with Root 12.

1.41pm Play is back underway following two minutes of silence to mark today’s passing of HRH Prince Philip. Yorkshire 69-2 in the 22nd over.

Lunch Report Ben Coad finished with four wickets as Yorkshire wrapped up Glamorgan’s first innings for 330 at the start of day two at Emerald Headingley.

In the early stages of this LV= Insurance County Championship fixture, the hosts then responded with 65-2 at lunch, including Adam Lyth’s unbeaten 44.

Australian seamer Michael Hogan has been at the heart of today’s action with runs and then wickets as Glamorgan first advanced from 310-8 overnight.

He moved from 40 to 52 with three boundaries in the first over of the day, bowled by Coad (4-94 from 26 overs).

Coad then got his man for 54 caught by Steve Patterson, running back from mid-off – his fourth wicket of the innings. Patterson later wrapped up the Glamorgan innings by trapping Jamie McIlroy lbw. Timm van der Gugten finished unbeaten on 85.

Hogan then claimed both Yorkshire wickets to fall as they slipped to 31-2 in the seventh over. He had Tom Kohler-Cadmore caught behind for 11 and bowled Tom Loten for a duck.

Billy Root almost had brother Joe lbw sweeping on four with his part-time off-spin, but Yorkshire’s England Test captain has reached the break unbeaten on 10.

1.20pm There will be a two-minute silence at all County Championship venues immediately after lunch to mark the passing of HRH Prince Philip. All players will wear black armbands, with flags at half mast.

1.01pm – Lunch Yorkshire 65-2 after 21 overs. Lyth 44 and Root 10. Very intriguing session.

12.29pm Almost for Billy against Joe, thankfully the finger stayed down after a huge lbw shout with the latter on four. Yorkshire 42-2 in the 12th.

That was only the second ball off-spinner Billy bowled to his older brother.

12.10pm Root off the mark with a lovely off driven four against Hogan six balls into his innings. 35-2 in the ninth.

12.02pm Loten bowled by Hogan for nought. Yorkshire 31-2.

11.52am Ah, TKC has fallen, caught behind off Hogan for 11. Glamorgan reduce the White Rose to 19-1 in the fifth.

11.10am Coad ends a 72-run stand for the ninth wicket with the help of his captain, Patterson, who takes a smart catch running back from mid-off to get rid of Hogan for 54. Glamorgan are 327-9.

11.03am Hogan reaches a 47-ball fifty with three boundaries in the day’s opening over, off Coad. Glamorgan 322-8 from 97 overs.

10.57am We’re about to get going here for day two. Coad will bowl to Hogan. Glamorgan 310-8.


Good morning from Emerald Headingley.

The sun is shining ahead of day two, but it is fresh again as the players get set to begin their warm-ups.

When play does resume at 11am in this LV= Insurance County Championship fixture, Yorkshire will be searching for the two wickets they need to wrap up Glamorgan’s first innings.

The Welshmen are looking to build one their score of 310-8 from 96 overs, a position of strength given they were 29-3 and 132-7 at stages yesterday.

A day which started so positively ended up going south for Yorkshire, with half-centuries for Carlson, Douthwaite and van der Gugten, the latter who is 20 away from a maiden career century.

The pitch is a pretty good one. More in it than the Uni games, seemingly, but still excellent for batting. So Steve Patterson and co need not panic. This game is still there for the winning.

The live stream is on offer again. Enjoy the day.
