2.18pm – WICKET! Bancroft trapped lbw by Hill, 26. It’s 61-3 in the 24th over. That’s an absolute peach of a delivery. Big in-swinger does for the Australian.

1.42pm – We’re up and running after lunch. Gloucestershire are 45-1 in the 15th over of their second innings, bowled by Revis. Bancroft 22, Price 20. They trail by 214.

12.35pm – Gloucestershire have moved to 26-1 in the ninth over of their second innings. Fernando has switched ends to the Trafalgar Square End.

12.08pm – WICKET! Charlesworth bowled by Fernando, 0. Glos are 6-1 in the second over of their second innings, still 253 runs in arrears.

12.02pm – Gloucestershire are 5-0 after one over of their second innings, from McKerr. Fernando sharing the new ball.

11.51am – Yorkshire have enforced the follow-on.

11.48am – WICKET! Singh Dale is caught at mid-on next ball off McKerr. Gloucestershire are 197 all out.

11.47am – WICKET! Goodman trapped lbw by McKerr, who richly deserves that first wicket in red ball cricket for Yorkshire. Gloucestershire 197-9 in the 83rd over. McKerr has 1-28 inside 18 overs. 

11.36am – McKerr into the attack with the new ball. Gloucestershire 191-8 after 80 overs.

11.10am – WICKET! Akhter well caught at first slip by Hill off Thompson, 7. Gloucestershire are 178-8.

10.59am – Thompson has taken up early morning bowling duties.

10.55am – We are five minutes from the start of play here at North Marine Road, where it remains overcast. Middleton and Akhter will resume for Gloucestershire.

9.20am – Good morning from North Marine Road, where it’s an overcast start to day three. That should be a good thing for Yorkshire in the grand scheme of things, as today is likely to be a bowling day.

Gloucestershire, replying to our 456 all out, will resume on 168-7 – still a long way short of the follow-on target of 307. That’s what they need to make Yorkshire bat again. And from Jordan Thompson’s comments last night, it’s likely Yorkshire will enforce given the chance.

Thompson was one of two standout performers yesterday, first hitting 44 with the bat and taken striking twice with the ball. Matthew Revis also claimed three wickets.

While they still have plenty of work to do, Yorkshire’s first Championship win of 2024 is within reach. If things go swimmingly, it could be achieved today.
