MATCH CENTRE 

7.41pm – The Northern Diamonds beat the Yorkshire Cricket College today in a 50-over friendly at Harrogate today by 172 runs. Sterre Kalis opened with 106 in 385-6 before Lizzie Scott claimed three wickets in the College’s 213 all out. The Diamonds return too Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy action on Sunday against the Stars at Beckenham.

6.22pm – Close. Gloucestershire reach 232-5 from 57 overs in their first-innings reply to 550-9d. Moriarty with 3-79 and Hammond 84 not out. Revis was Yorkshire’s star earlier with an unbeaten 104 – his maiden first-team century.

5.53pm – WICKET! Bracey caught at slip by Hill driving at Lyth, 44. That breaks a 96-run stand with Hammond, who has 74. It’s 221-5 in the 50th.

5.39pm – Gloucestershire have recovered well here, led by Hammond with 65. They’re 200-4 with 10 and a bit overs left tonight. He has received good support from Bracey with 32. They’ve shared 75.

5.24pm – Hammond reaches a counter-attacking fifty for Gloucestershire off 60 balls with his fourth six, over cover against Moriarty. It’s 170-4.

5.19pm – Adam Lyth is going to have a bowl as Yorkshire search for wicket number five. It’s spin from both ends, with Moriarty continuing. 164-4 in the 41st over.

5.05pm – Gloucestershire have moved to 149-4 in the 37th over. Twenty more remain after this one.

And here’s a look at maiden centurion Matthew Revis celebrating his milestone today.

4.48pm – WICKET! Van Buuren caught behind pulling at Moriarty – undone by extra bounce, 12. It’s 125-4.

4.23pm – WICKET! Charlesworth caught at slip by Lyth off Moriarty for 35 following a deliberation between the umpires over whether it was a bump ball. 93-3 in the 26th over.

4.01pm – Miles Hammond will be looking to prevent Dan Moriarty from striking twice in the 22nd over as we continue after tea. Gloucestershire are 80-2.

3.46pm – Tea Report Matthew Revis completed a landmark maiden career first-team century as Yorkshire declared their first innings on 550-9 during the second afternoon against Gloucestershire.

The 21-year-old all-rounder, 25 not out overnight, reached his century moments before the home declaration, off 162 balls with 10 fours and a slog-swept six.

He featured in half-century stands for the eighth and ninth wickets with Dom Leech and Mark Steketee, who made 32 and 26.

But he was forced into nervy progression from 96 following Steketee’s department stumped against Zafar Gohar’s left-arm spin, leaving Yorkshire at 534-9.

Revis was strong on the drive and batted with a calmness which overcame the late scramble for a handful of runs with only Dan Moriarty for company.

Gloucestershire then responded with 80-2 in the 22nd over at tea, the wickets going to Leech – his first in Championship cricket – and debutant Moriarty.

Leech had Chris Dent (34) caught at second slip on the drive before loanee left-arm spinner Moriarty trapped South African overseas Grant Roelofsen lbw stuck on the crease with what proved the last ball of the session.√

3.42pm – WICKET!  Moriarty traps Roelofsen lbw for 19, and it’s 80-2 in the 22nd over – and that’s tea.

3.13pm – A quirky stat. That wicket was Dom Leech’s maiden Championship wicket. His previous four first-class wickets had come in the Bob Willis Trophy in the summer of 2020.

3.11pm – WICKET! Dent caught at second slip by Lyth off Leech, 34. Gloucestershire are 45-1 in the 15th over.

3.02pm – Encouraging start to the second innings if you’re a Gloucestershire fan. They’re 40-0 after 12 overs. Leech has returned to replace Fisher.

2.36pm – Gloucestershire are 14-0 in the sixth over of their first innings.

2.12pm – In the 50-over friendly between the Northern Diamonds and the Yorkshire Cricket College at Harrogate, the Diamonds have amassed 385-6 from their 50 overs. Sterre Kalis top-scored with 106.

The Gloucestershire reply is about to start. Fisher bowling to Charlesworth.

2.04pm – Yorkshire have declared on 550-9 with Revis 104 not out, adding to day one centuries from Bean and Hill. Excellent. Now for some wickets.

2.01pm – HUNDRED! What an innings, what a moment. Matt Revis reaches his maiden first-team ton off 162 balls with 10x4s and 1x6s.

2pm – Revis on 99, with Yorkshire 541-9 after 129 overs. He has strike against Gohar at the start of the next over.

1.45pm – WICKET! Steketee is stumped having advanced at Gohar, falling for 26. We’re 534-9 with Revis on 96. Dan Moriarty at the crease now trying to steer Revis to his maiden ton.

1.41pm – We’re up and running after lunch. Revis on 94 out of 531-8. Steketee 25.

1.05pm – Before play this morning, George Hill was awarded last year’s Southern Group Young Player of the Year. Well done that man.

1.03pm – Lunch Report Matthew Revis – 94 not out – is closing in on a maiden first-team century as Yorkshire continue to dominate Gloucestershire on day two at a sunny Headingley, reaching lunch at 531-8 from 124 overs. 

Yorkshire have advanced from 393-6 overnight, losing Matthew Fisher caught behind off left-arm seamer Matt Taylor – his fourth wicket – and Dom Leech superbly caught one-handed at slip by Miles Hammond’s off Ollie Price’s off-spin.

Leech fell for a career best 32, including a slog-swept six off Pakistani left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar.

That’s also something Revis has done to Graeme van Buuren’s left-arm spin this morning in moving from 25 overnight.

Revis reached his fifty off 86 balls and shared 71 for the eighth wicket with Leech. He later added an unbroken 54 for the ninth with Australian debutant Mark Steketee, who has 25 not out.

12.48pm – We’ve moved to 517-8, with Revis 90 and Steketee 19 having shared 51 and counting for the ninth wicket.

12.29pm – Revis into the eighties with a slog-swept six and then a guided four off van Buuren’s left-arm spin. He has 81 of 498-8.

12.15pm – WICKET! Leech superbly caught by Hammond at slip off Ollie Price’s spin for 32. It’s 467-8 in the 111th. Mark Steketee in on debut.

12.11pm – Both Revis and Leech – 62 and 29 respectively – have posted career best first-class scores with power to add. It’s 465-7 in the 110th over, with Gloucestershire set to miss out on a third bowling point for failing total nine wickets in time.

12.08pm – Yorkshire have moved to 452-8 in the 108th over, securing a fifth batting point in the process. Leech has 24, including a slog-swept six, and Revis 56. They’ve shared a half-century partnership.

11.45am – Revis reaches a fine fifty off 86 balls, including seven fours. We’ve moved to 425-7.

11.27am – It’s been a pretty quiet start to the day here at Headingley, with Yorkshire advancing to 406-7 after 98 overs. Revis 36 and Leech one, with 13 runs added today.

11.13am – The Northern Diamonds are in 50-over friendly action against the Yorkshire Cricket College today at Harrogate. The Diamonds are 41-0 in the 11th over, with Sterre Kalis 18 and Yvonne Graves 13.

11.12am – Yorkshire 401-7 in the 94th over, a fourth batting bonus point in the bag as Revis picks up four off Taylor behind point to move to 32.

11.04am – WICKET! Fisher caught behind off Taylor, 8. It’s 396-7 in the 92nd over, the day’s first. Dom Leech in now.

11am – We’re all set for the start of play. Matthew Revis will face Matt Taylor. Yorkshire 393-6. We have 98 overs to bowl in the day.

10.20am – The ground staff had actually just brought the cover onto the wicket about 10-15 minutes ago. Not sure whether it was actually raining or just a precaution because the players did continue to warm-up. The sun’s out again now, though.

8.40am – Good morning from Headingley. The sun is shining once again, as it did on Yorkshire yesterday as Fin Bean and George Hill both scored centuries to underpin a dominant start at 393-6. There was a threat of significant rain yesterday, which didn’t really eventuate until a 20-minute downpour cut five overs from the day’s allocation late on. But there doesn’t seem to be any rain around today, thankfully.

Matthew Revis and Matthew Fisher will start the day on 25 and six respectively, with the first aim the remaining two batting bonus points for reaching 450.

Gloucestershire seamer Matt Taylor, who impressed with three wickets, readily admitted after play last night that the visitors were far from their best with the ball. If they don’t improve today, the game could get away from them quickly.

If you want to recap yesterday’s action, which included an excellent 79 for Jonny Tattersall, you can do via our Match Report and reaction piece with Fin Bean, which are linked below.

MATCH REPORT 

FIN BEAN 

As usual, there will be a live stream available via the Match Centre tab at the top of the page.

Away from Headingley, England women are 116-5 chasing 268 heading into today’s fifth and final day of the Ashes Test at Trent Bridge. The winner will take four points forward into the remainder of the multi-format series.

And at Chelmsford, Dom Bess returned 2-143 from 32 overs for Warwickshire against Essex, who closed day one on 391-7. Bess has been loaned to the Bears for this Championship match only, with the plan being for him to return to Headingley afterwards. Having been excellent in the Vitality Blast this summer, there is every chance he will play in Friday’s Roses game at Emirates Old Trafford.

Ben Coad, meanwhile, is missing this Gloucestershire match due to a personal matter and Jordan Thompson is resting a sore ankle.
