5.39pm Warwickshire have declared on 272-4 with seven overs remaining in the day against Hampshire at Edgbaston.

Tea Report Dom Bess and Ben Coad struck twice apiece amidst a five-wicket afternoon for Yorkshire as they fight back against Gloucestershire on day two at Headingley.

The hosts relinquished control during the second morning as, replying to a first-innings 190, they slipped from 80-3 overnight to 183 all out.

Gloucestershire, leading by seven, then reached tea at 110-5 second time around.

Gloucester started their second innings immediately after lunch and, after losing Chris Dent caught behind off Coad in the opening over, they advanced confidently to 56-1 in the 21st over.

But off-spinner Bess opened the door and sparked the loss of four wickets for 18 as they fell to 74-5 in the 26th.

Opener Ben Charlesworth was trapped lbw for 25 before James Bracey chipped a return catch to fall for 39. Sandwiched in between Coad had Miles Hammond caught at gully off the shoulder of the bat and Matthew Fisher had Graeme van Buuren caught at second slip.

Ollie Price (18) and Jack Taylor (19) have since made it through to tea without further alarm on a gorgeous Headingley day.

3.38pm – Tea Gloucestershire have moved to 110-5 in the 34th over, leading by 117. Coad and Bess claim two wickets apiece as five fall in all.

3.06pm WICKET! van Buuren caught at second slip by Lyth off Fisher. Brilliant Yorkshire fightback. Gloucestershire 74-5 in the 21st over.

Over at Edgbaston, Warwickshire are 185-2 and off for rain.

2.07pm Gloucestershire 27-1 in the 12th over, leading by 34.

1.24pm WICKET! Dent caught behind off Coad, nought. Gloucestershire 1-1 in the first over. They lead by eight.

Lunch Report A five-wicket haul for Gloucestershire’s Pakistan left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar put the skids under Yorkshire’s first-innings reply to 190 at the start of day two at Headingley.

Yorkshire, 80-3 overnight, fell to 166-9 shortly before lunch, where they reached at 183 all out – a deficit of seven.

Gohar claimed all of his wickets – 5-40 from 14 overs – this morning, starting with Tom Kohler-Cadmore caught at mid-wicket for 46 with a top-edged pull against his first ball, Yorkshire falling to 121-4 in the 35th over.

The hosts, through Kohler-Cadmore and Jonny Tattersall, had made a flying start to the day. Thirty two runs came in the first three-and-a-half overs of play, including 15 off one over from Tom Price.

But things went rapidly downhill for a side who need a maximum 10-point haul from this game to guarantee safety in Division One of the LV= Insurance County Championship. They have so far got three of them.

Gohar had Harry Duke lbw, captain Tattersall (33) and Jordan Thompson caught at first slip and Ben Coad caught at cover off a miscue.

?Sandwiched in between, Dom Bess was caught behind down leg off the seam of Ajeet Singh Dale.

At the fall of the ninth wicket – Coad, 166-9 in the 51st over – Steve Patterson walked to the crease and was greeted by a guard of honour from Gloucestershire’s players and a guard of honour from the Headingley crowd as he prepares to farewell the club at the end of the week.

Patterson carved a boundary to third to take Yorkshire’s deficit to single figures before being caught at second slip off Tom Price, caught by his brother Ollie, to wrap up the innings and signal lunch.

12.40pm – Lunch WICKET! Patterson caught at second slip off Price, six. 183 all out, and Yorkshire trail by seven.

12.33pm At Edgbaston, second-bottom Warwickshire are 157-2 against second-placed Hampshire. But they are off for rain.

12.24pm Yorkshire 174-9, trailing by 16. Fisher has 14 and Patterson is yet to get off the mark.

12.14pm WICKET! Coad has skied to Gohar to cover, one. Yorkshire 166-9, and Patterson is welcomed to the crease by a guard of honour from Gloucestershire and a standing ovation. We trail by 24.

12.03pm WICKET! Thompson caught at slip off Gohar, nine. Yorkshire 160-8 in the 49th.

11.42am WICKET! Bess gone! He’s been caught behind down leg off Singh Dale, four. Yorkshire 147-7 in the 44th.

11.38am WICKET! Tattersall caught at slip off Gohar, 33. Yorkshire 142-6 in the 43rd.

11.17am WICKET! Duke trapped lbw by Gohar, four. 135-5 after 37 overs.

11.06am WICKET! Kohler-Cadmore caught off Gohar’s first ball – top-edged pull to mid-wicket, falling for a well made 46. Yorkshire 121-4, trailing by 69.

10.47am Thirty two runs have come in the first three-and-a-half overs of the day, with Yorkshire now 112-3 after 30. That has included 15 off one Tom Price over.

10.39am Yorkshire 103-3 in the 29th over, a deficit of 87. Fast start – Kohler-Cadmore and Tattersall have come out with real intent and has moved to 35 and nine.

Match Report

Matthew Fisher

Good morning from Headingley, where it is dry and bright ahead of day two against Gloucestershire.

We will resume, at 10.30am, on 80-3 in reply to 190.

We came into this game requiring a minimum 10-point haul to secure LV= Insurance County Championship safety in Division One, and we already have three of them in the bag.

Warwickshire are the first team to keep an eye on. They are 138-2 against Hampshire at Edgbaston. That 10 points is assuming they get maximum points, 24, in their game. Any less will reduce Yorkshire’s target.

What we do know is that if we, from here, draw this game, we will be safe. How realistic that is given the speed with which the game advanced yesterday is an obvious point.

When play does resume, Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Jonny Tattersall, the latter newly capped yesterday, will be at the crease.

TKC is 21 not out, with Tattersall yet to face. Fingers crossed the former goes out in style, with this his last appearance for the county before a winter move to Somerset. Let’s hope a fine Yorkshire career can have one last hurrah.

Matthew Fisher was yesterday’s star with four wickets on his return from pretty much a season out with a back stress fracture. He bowled superbly on a good pitch showing signs of extra bounce.

There will be a live stream available, as usual, shortly before play gets underway. Enjoy the day.
