** Adam Lyth said:**

“We haven’t played our best cricket this game. We know that. But we’ve come away with a decent draw and some positives at the end.
“We’re just looking forwards to next week (Kent at Canterbury).
“Personally, it’s been a fantastic game for me. I was disappointed that I didn’t go on in the first innings, but that ball would have got me out eight or nine times out of 10.
“The way I’ve played in the Durham University friendly and in this game, I’m absolutely thrilled.
“Hopefully there’s many more fifties and hundreds to come.
“It was a good pitch, but there’s always a bit of seam at Headingley.
“We lost a few early wickets, but the way myself and Harry Brook played was very pleasing to see.
“We were a bit fortunate they had to bowl spin for a while in the afternoon to get their over-rate down.”

5.17pm MATCH DRAWN: The players shake hands with Yorkshire on 223-4 from 66 overs. Lyth with a brilliant 115 not out off 196 balls. Glamorgan take 14 points and Yorks 11

5.03pm Here is some news from the ECB regarding next week’s game against Kent and some altered timings to fall in with HRH Prince Phillip’s funeral at 3pm on Saturday.

As a mark of respect, all nine LV= Insurance County Championship matches will pause between 2:50-4:10 on Saturday 17 April, to coincide with the funeral of HRH Prince Phillip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

The ECB are also asking all recreational cricket clubs across England and Wales to pause play between 3pm and 4pm next Saturday in order to pay their respects alongside observing the one minute silence at 3pm.

Here are the new timings of play.

Days 1&2 (Thursday & Friday)

Day 3 (Saturday)

Day 4 (Sunday)
As normal

5.01pm Yorkshire 214-4 from 62 overs. Start of the last hour. So 16 overs to be bowled. Lyth 111 and Tattersall 10.

4.30pm HUNDRED! Lyth reaches his 25th first-class century off 166 balls with 13×4s and 2×6s, and it’s Yorkshire’s first of 2021. Super stuff. 199-4 with 20 overs remaining.

4.08pm Brook falls in the early stages of the evening. Caught at cover off Hogan for 60. Yorkshire are 178-4 with 26.2 overs remaining. Lyth joined at the crease by Tattersall.

Tea Report An unbroken 126 partnership between fourth-wicket pair Adam Lyth and Harry Brook has eased Yorkshire’s fears of an opening round LV= Insurance County Championship defeat against Glamorgan at Emerald Headingley.

Yorkshire, set 379 in a minimum of 76 overs at noon on day four, slipped to 47-3 in the 17th shortly after lunch when Joe Root edged to slip for 13.

But Lyth and Brook have positively turned the tide, both reaching half-centuries, on the way to a tea-time score of 176-3 from 46 overs. A further 28 must be bowled.

Lyth pulled two sixes en-route to a 91-ball half-century, while Brook cleared the ropes once on the way to his milestone off 60 balls.

A 10-minute snow flurry either side of 3pm cut two overs from the 76 remaining, though Glamorgan have since hurried through their overs with off-spinners Billy Root and Callum Taylor.

Joe Root fell for his second low score of the game – he made 16 in the first innings – when he played back to Dan Douthwaite’s seamers and edged to first slip.

Lyth will begin the evening on 80 and Brook 60.

3.40pm Tea. Yorkshire 173-3 after 46 overs. 28 overs remain, with a further 206 required. Lyth 80 and Brook 60.

3.20pm Brook follows Lyth to a fifty, off 60 balls. Excellent. 146-3.

3.04pm Play back underway, with two overs lost. Suspect Glamorgan may make that up, as they are bowling double spin in form of Root and Taylor. 126-3 in the 32nd of 74. Brook has just hit him straight for six to move to 40.

2.55pm Snow stopped play. The players are coming off due to a flurry. 118-3 after 31. May only be a brief interruption as it looks to have stopped by the time players get to boundary rope.

2.49pm As the players break to sanitise the ball, Yorkshire have moved into a healthier position at 105-3. Make that 109-3 as Lyth reaches 52 off 91 balls with 8×4s and 2×6s. Excellent from the opener.

2.48pm Yorkshire move to 105-3 in the 29th of 76 overs. Lyth has 48 and Brook 28. The pair have shared an unbroken 58.

2.29pm Yorkshire move to 76-3 in the 23rd of 76 overs. Lyth 25 and Brook 22.

2.22pm There has only been one result so far in the opening round, with Hampshire winning at Leicestershire. That game has courted controversy, with Hampshire keeper Lewis McManus yesterday completing a much talked about stumping of Hassan Azad.

The ball was in his right glove and he flicked the bails off with his left.

Make your own mind up……

2pm Work to do for Yorkshire as they slip to 47-3. Root is caught at first slip by Balbirnie for 13 off Douthwaite. 47-3 in the 17th of 76 overs. Brook in to join Lyth at the crease.

1.48pm We are up and running after lunch here at Emerald Headingley. Yorkshire are 36-2 in the 15th over, chasing 379 in 76. Lyth has 19 and Root 3.

Lunch Report Yorkshire, set a victory target of 379 in a minimum of 76 overs an hour into day four against Glamorgan at Emerald Headingley, have reached lunch on 32-2 from 11.4.

Billy Root and Glamorgan captain Chris Cooke – 77 and 57 overnight – both reached their centuries during a wicketless morning which saw the visitors advance their second innings from 161-4 to 241-4 declared.

Root’s century, off 210 balls with nine fours and a six, was achieved as he worked two off his legs to long-leg against brother Joe’s off-spin.

Joe clapped him, gave his a fist bump and a pat on the back shortly afterwards.

Captain Cooke then reached his hundred and declared immediately as the Welshmen search for a notable opening round LV= Insurance County Championship win.

Timm van der Gugten had Tom Kohler-Cadmore caught behind in the ninth over of Yorkshire’s chase, leaving the score at 19-1. Tom Loten was then trapped lbw by Michael Hogan two balls before lunch.

Adam Lyth is 18 not out, while Joe Root will begin his innings after the break.

1.01pm – Lunch Yorkshire, chasing 379 in a minimum of 76 overs, have lost Loten in the session’s final over, lbw Hogan for 9. 32-2 from 11.4.

12.26pm Yorkshire 12-0 after four overs. Lyth has 9 and Kohler-Cadmore 3.

12.02pm Declaration comes at 241-4 as Cooke reaches 213-ball century. Yorkshire need 379 in 76 overs to win the game.

11.48am Billy Root reaches his hundred off 210 balls with 9×4s and 1×6s. Excellent knock – well played. Glamorgan 221-4, a lead of 357.

Billy got to 100 with a worked two off his legs, to long-leg, off brother Joe’s off-spin.

11.36am Billy Root on 97….Glamorgan 203-4, a lead of 340.

11.04am Play is underway here. Brook and Bess the bowlers for Yorkshire. Glamorgan 166-4 in the 63rd over, leading by 305. Root 83 and Cooke 58.

9.45am Just a recap to yesterday when we saw the incredible scenes of blanket snow across the outfield here, preventing any play beyond lunch.

Good morning from Emerald Headingley.

There will be a few chattering teeth in the field today, but the snow has cleared and we look good for an 11am start for day four of this season opening LV= Insurance County Championship clash with Glamorgan.

As I type, I can see Andy Fogarty with some sort of industrial hairdryer trying to get rid of the overnight frost from the practice pitches.

Once he’s done, we may request it be brought up to the press box as there’s one or two media colleagues with lockdown lids who could do with that sort of treatment!

Anyway, when play begins, Glamorgan will resume on 161-4 in their second innings, leading by 298. Billy Root has 77 and Chris Cooke 57.

The expectation is that they will try and push the target upwards of 350 and then get bowling.

Needless to say, Yorkshire will have to bat much better second time around to claim a positive result from this Group Three fixture. We fully expect injured pair Matthew Fisher and Ben Coad to bat.

You can watch all the action unfold on the live stream. Enjoy the day.
