Bean 100 Glo

3.24pm – HUNDRED! Lyth reaches his fourth Championship ton on this ground off 179 balls with 13x4s and 1x6s. Outstanding. We’re 206-0 in the 59th over, with Bean 92.

1.43pm – We’re up and running after lunch. Goodman bowling to Lyth, 64. We’re 106-0 in the 32nd over. Bean has 31.

1.04pm – Lunch. Superb from Yorkshire, who are 106-0 from 31 overs having been inserted. Lyth 64, Bean 31.

12.58pm – Great opening session for Yorkshire. We’re 103-0 in the 30th over. Lyth has 64 and Bean 30. Gloucestershire are under significant pressure early on.

12.40pm – SIX! Bean hoists a sweep at Middleton over long-on onto the top tier of the pavilion, moving to 29. Yorkshire 96-0 in the 26th over. Excellent.

12.35pm – Lyth reaches his fifty off 84 balls with his sixth boundary, cover driven off Singh Dale, added to a six. Excellent. It’s 84-0 in the 25th over.

Lyth 50 Glo

12.31pm – SIX! Lyth sweeps leg-spinner Middleton’s first ball over deep square-leg’s head to move to 45. We’re 77-0 in the 24th over.

12.21pm – This is the only game across the country which hasn’t had a wicket. 66-0 in the 22nd over.

12.02pm – We’ve moved to 52-0 after 17 overs as Bean clips Webster off his legs for four, moving to 22. Lyth has 23.

11.50am – Very few alarms for Yorkshire so far, and we’ve moved to 45-0 after 13. Lyth 22, Bean 17.

11.36am – Yorkshire 29-0 in the 10th over. Lyth has 17 of them.

11.19am – Lyth square drives the first boundary off Singh Dale, on the up beyond a diving backward point. We’re 12-0 in the fifth. Make that 16-0, as a second boundary follows through the covers. Much more authority about that shot.

11.14am – On initial viewing, there doesn’t seem to be quite as much pace in the pitch as usual. Spongy bounce. Interesting to see if that view is strengthened as the day goes on. Yorkshire 6-0 in the fourth over.

11am – We’re up and running here at Scarborough. Lyth and Bean opening. Lyth facing Singh Dale.

10.40am – Yorkshire: Lyth, Bean, Luxton, Wharton, Hill, Tattersall c&w, Revis, Thompson, Bess, McKerr, Fernando.

10.32am – Gloucestershire have won the toss and will bowl first.

10.28am – Jonny Tattersall will captain Yorkshire this week. He’s out there for the toss with Glos captain Graeme van Buuren.

10.10am – It remains hazy here at Scarborough as the players continue to warm up. Ben Coad has been bowling in the middle already, and he is targeting Chesterfield next weekend.

9.10am – Good morning from North Marine Road, where it’s not quite glorious sunshine but hazy. It’s warm, for sure, and there’s no concerns about a delayed start. 11am it is.

After a mixed start to the Vitality Blast, four wins and four defeats, Ottis Gibson and co return to Championship action looking for their first win. Gloucestershire have already achieved that, but a win this week for Yorkshire would see them leapfrog the Bristol side into mid-table.

Yorkshire have some availability issues. Shan Masood is unavailable due to concussion. We’re expecting Jonny Tattersall to captain in his place. Ben Coad is not fit to return from his back injury. Conor McKerr, though, has extended his loan from Surrey into red ball cricket. Vishwa Fernando plays his penultimate match of a three-game overseas stint.

Our last Championship match, in May, saw us draw against Northamptonshire at Wantage Road when the hosts held on eight wickets down on the final evening.
