Jack Leaning

“It didn’t go as well as we’d have liked. Getting bowled out for under 200 is never ideal when you win the toss. We’d have liked another 100 more at least.

“But getting a wicket tonight was a big boost, and hopefully tomorrow we can make some decent inroads with the new ball.

“You always feel in the game at Headingley because there’s always something in the pitch. Certainly with the way our bowlers bowl here, there’s every chance we can pick up some early wickets.

“It’s a frustrating day for the batters because the hardest thing at Headingley is getting in and getting going, which we did. But credit to them, there were some good balls in there.

“I feel like a lot of us were got out rather than giving our wickets away. Sometimes it happens like that.”

6.53pm OUT Soames lbw Coad first ball of the day’s last over. 14-1 from 9.1 at close.

6.08pm Bess gone! He’s been well caught at gully by Holland off Fuller. 181 all out. Hampshire to face 11 overs tonight.

5.55pm We’re back underway and Coad has been bowled by Edwards first ball after the resumption. 177-9.

5.49pm Bad light comes at 177-8.

5.41pm Edwards yorks Patterson for nought and now has four-for. 175-8.

5.29pm Yorkshire lose their sixth wicket as Tattersall edges Edwards behind for 14. 170-6 in the 50th. David Willey has hit six fours in 29 not out, but every time you think Yorkshire are getting into a decent position they lose a wicket to challenge that theory.

4.28pm Leaning caught Rahane at first slip bowled Fuller for 19. Yorkshire 116-4.

4.24pm Back up and running. Yorkshire 115-3, and Kohler-Cadmore and Leaning have brought up their 50 stand. 36 overs remaining in the day.

Division One

Essex (6th) v Kent (4th)

Sir Alastair Cook, who is playing only his 100th first-class game for Essex since debuting in 2003, is 75 not out with his side 190 for 3. Matt Milnes has taken two wickets including Dan Lawrence for 42.

Warwickshire (8th) v Surrey (5th)

Between the showers, Gareth Batty picked up Warwickshire openers Dominic Sibley and Will Rhodes after they had put on 50 for the bottom of the table side. They are 127 for 3 from 45 overs.

Yorkshire (3rd) v Hampshire (2nd)

Rain has interrupted proceedings at Headingley where Yorkshire fell from 44 without loss to 65 for 3 with Keith Barker taking two wickets. They have since recovered to 104 for 3 before rain returned.

Division Two

Gloucestershire (3rd) v Lancashire (1st) at Cheltenham

Pace bowler Saqib Mahmood took three wickets but leaders Lancashire have been held up by opener Miles Hammond, who is 79 not out in a score of 176 for 6.

Leicestershire (8th) v Derbyshire (7th) at Leicester

Only Wayne Madsen (47) offered much resistance to Leicestershire’s seamers as Derbyshire were bowled out for 139 with Mohammad Abbas and Chris Wright each taking three wickets.

Sussex (6th) v Glamorgan (4th)

Nick Selman carried his bat for 76, passing 2,000 first-class runs in the process, but Glamorgan were dismissed for 186 after winning the toss. Chris Jordan and Jared Warner, a seam bowler on loan from Yorkshire who is making his first-class debut, each picked up three wickets.

Worcestershire (2nd) v Middlesex (9th)

Skipper Dawid Malan made 45 on his return after injury for Middlesex, but they are struggling on 176 for 6.

Tea Yorkshire fell from 44-0 to 65-3 during another rain-interrupted session on day one against Hampshire at Emerald Headingley, later reaching tea at 104-3.

Yorkshire resumed on 26-0 from 5.3 overs after lunch, with 23.3 bowled in the afternoon.

Tea was taken half an hour early due to a second rain interruption added to a delayed start this morning.

The hosts had made a healthy start by scoring at six an over through the first seven overs, but they then lost openers Harry Brook and Adam Lyth plus Gary Ballance.

Brook (17) played onto his stumps against Fidel Edwards in the eighth over before Lyth edged Keith Barker’s left-arm seamers to Joe Weatherley at second slip for 18. Lyth had been dropped by the same man shortly beforehand.

Then, when Ballance edged Barker behind to sub wicketkeeper Aneurin Donald, on for ill Tom Alsop, Yorkshire were tottering at 65 for three after 15.

Thankfully, however, Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Jack Leaning have since shared an unbroken 39 to steady the ship and will begin the evening on 32 and 10 respectively.

The rain which brought about an early tea has since stopped, and we still have 51 overs left in the day.

3.12pm The rain has returned with Yorkshire 104-3 after 29 overs.

3.03pm England have won their World Cup warm-up game against Afghanistan at the Oval by nine wickets chasing 161 inside 18 overs. Jason Roy with 89 not out from 46 balls, Jonny Bairstow 39 and Joe Root 29 unbeaten. Root earlier claimed three wickets alongside Jofra Archer.

All England’s warm-up action is done. Now for the proper stuff to start on Thursday against South Africa at the Oval.

2.52pm There looks to be a fair bit of swing on offer for the seamers out there. It seems to be causing problems to sub keeper Aneurin Donald as much as anybody. Donald has fumbled a few behind the stumps, but unfortunately held onto the important chance when Ballance edged Barker. 93-3 after 25 overs.

1.57pm Lyth gone! He doesn’t make the most of that earlier drop as Weatherley holds on at second slip off Barker for 18. 50-2 in the 11th.

1.50pm Life for Lyth on 18 as he’s dropped at second slip by Weatherley off Barker 44-1 after nine.

1.36pm We’re back underway at Emerald Headingley after lunch. Hampshire have a sub wicketkeeper, Aneurin Donald on in place of Tom Alsop, who is feeling unwell. Yorkshire 34-0 in the seventh.

Lunch Morning rain meant only 5.3 overs were possible before lunch on day one of the Specsavers County Championship clash between Yorkshire and Hampshire at Emerald Headingley.

This is a meeting between two form sides in Division One, and Yorkshire were 26-0 when rain forced lunch 25 minutes early (12.50pm).

Play started at 12.20pm – 83 overs to be bowled – with half an hour’s play after Yorkshire had elected to bat upon winning the toss.

Harry Brook, who drove Keith Barker handsomely through the covers for one of his two boundaries, has 16 and Adam Lyth seven.

Hampshire are second behind leaders Somerset having won three and lost one from their four matches.

Their only defeat was by an innings against unbeaten Yorkshire at the Ageas Bowl last month. Yorkshire have won two and drawn two and sit in third.

Yorkshire have brought in David Willey for injured Tim Bresnan (calf) from their last match, a victory over Kent at Canterbury the week before last.

Hampshire, beaten by Somerset in Saturday’s Royal London one-day Cup final at Lord’s, won last week’s Championship game against Notts on the Isle of Wight.

They have brought in Rilee Rossouw and James Fuller for Aneurin Donald and Kyle Abbott. Liam Dawson also started last week’s game before dropping out midway through for England duty. Mason Crane came in and has retained his place.

12.41pm Lovely cover driven four for Brook against Barker takes him to 16. Yorkshire 21-0 in the fifth.

12.26pm There are 83 overs to be bowled in the day and Yorkshire are 4-0 after one, including three for Brook.

12.22pm Right, we’re up and running. Barker to Lyth, who defends the first ball.

12.09pm The rain has returned to Emerald Headingley, unfortunately.

12.05pm Team news……

Yorkshire: Lyth, Brook, Ballance, Kohler-Cadmore, Leaning, Tattersall w, Bess, Willey, Patterson c, Coad, Olivier.

Hampshire: Weatherley, Soames, Rahane, Northeast c, Alsop w, Rossouw, Holland, Fuller, Barker, Edwards, Crane.

12.01pm We will be getting underway at 12.15pm. Lunch to be taken at 1.15pm.

11.55am Yorkshire have won the toss and will be batting first. No confirmation on start time, but it’s looking likely to be in the region of 12.20pm.

11.11am There will be a further inspection here at 11.45am.

11am Good news. The rain has stopped, and it looks much brighter now. The umpires are on their way out to inspect. Early lunch may be a realistic shout.

10.32am It is still raining, so we will have a delayed start.

10am Unfortunately it’s started raining at Headingley and the covers are on.

9.40am Around the grounds courtesy of the ECB Reporters Network…

Division One

Essex (6th) v Kent (4th)

The Essex squad includes former England all-rounder Ravi Bopara, who returns after a toe injury, and wicket-keeper Michael Pepper, who has recovered from an appendix operation and may replace on-loan Robbie White. Joe Denly will captain Kent after he was left out of England’s World Cup squad but Sam Billings (shoulder), Calum Haggett (elbow), Grant Stewart (back) and Ivan Thomas (knee) are still out.

Warwickshire (8th) v Surrey (5th)

Warwickshire’s squad includes Michael Burgess, who has joined from Sussex, while Surrey have added Gus Atkinson, Jordan Clark, Jamie Smith and Matt Dunn to their squad. Sam Curran (hamstring) and Conor McKerr (heel) are missing while Jade Derbach (calf) and Amir Virdi (side) will continue their return to full fitness in the second team.

Yorkshire (3rd) v Hampshire (2nd)

Yorkshire, who have won two and drawn the other of their games so far, are without Tim Bresnan (calf) and all-rounder Matthew Waite (ankle). After being left out of England’s World Cup squad, fast bowler David Willey returns to domestic action while all-rounder Ed Barnes is included in the squad for the first time after returning from his loan spell with Sussex. Hampshire are expected to name the same team which beat Nottinghamshire last week.

Division Two

Gloucestershire (3rd) v Lancashire (1st)

Gloucestershire are expected to be unchanged after beating Durham last week to claim their first win of the season. Pacesetters Lancashire, who have won all three games so far, could have wicketkeeper Alex Davies back after his recovery from a broken thumb. Australian Jake Lehmann is staying at Old Trafford as overseas player after Joe Burns returned to Australia for personal reasons.

Leicestershire (8th) v Derbyshire (7th)

Left-arm seamer Dieter Klein is added to the Leicestershire squad that drew with Middlesex last time out. Derbyshire, beaten by Glamorgan by two wickets last week, are unchanged.

Sussex (6th) v Glamorgan (4th)

Ollie Robinson (shoulder) and George Garton (side) are still missing for Sussex, who are likely to name the team which drew with Northamptonshire last week. Glamorgan, fresh from their two-wicket win over Derbyshire, bring Andrew Salter, Timm van der Gugten, Marchant de Lange and Kiran Carlson back into their squad.

Worcestershire (2nd) v Middlesex (9th)

Wayne Parnell (hamstring) is absent for the hosts but fellow seamer Josh Tongue, who missed last week’s defeat at Lancashire, is back in their squad. Middlesex are boosted by the return of skipper Dawid Malan, who has recovered from a groin injury, and pace bowlers Tim Murtagh, following international duty with Ireland, and Toby Roland-Jones, who was rested for the drawn game against Leicestershire last time out.

Good morning from Emerald Headingley.

After a week away, we’re back in action for this week’s Specsavers County Championship clash against a Hampshire side who are second in Division One behind Somerset and one place above the White Rose.

Both sides are in good form. While Yorkshire are unbeaten with two wins and two draws, Hampshire have won three from four, including against Nottinghamshire on the Isle of Wight last week.

Hampshire’s only defeat came against Yorkshire at the Ageas Bowl last month, by an innings. Andrew Gale described it as pretty much the perfect performance.

Hampshire, who lost Saturday’s RL50 Cup final to Somerset at Lord’s, continue to be without James Vince and Liam Dawson due to England duty. They will he captained by Sam Northeast.

Last time out, Yorkshire beat Kent at Canterbury the week before last. But they will have to make at least one change to that side, with David Willey replacing injured Tim Bresnan (calf).

It has been an unsettled start to the day weather wise, with some rain around. It is dry now, however, and we will get underway at 11am for our first home Championship match of the season.
