10.13am – The light is pretty gloomy here at Headingley. Suspect we’ll be starting under floodlights.

8.35am – Good morning from Headingley, where it is an overcast start to day two. 

The main thing is it’s dry, and we look likely to start on time at 11am.

Yorkshire came out of half a day’s play pretty well yesterday, striking twice in the mini evening session of half an hour or so, leaving Glamorgan on 109-4 at close.

A run out was supplemented by wickets for Coad, Moriarty and then Bess. Billy Root scored 51 for the visitors. 

There’s clearly been a bit of overnight rain knocking about, so a quick burst with the seamers before getting stuck in with the spinners may well be the order of the morning. 

We will have 104 overs scheduled in the day for the next two days in order to make up some of the 55 we lost yesterday. 

If you want to recap yesterday’s play, you can do via our match report and reaction piece from Dan Moriarty. They are both linked below.
