Dom Bess

“I think it was a really good day for us. At one point, they were 80-2 and then we got Rahane. So to drag it back with wickets in clusters, I think we’d have taken a deficit of 50 after being bowled out for 181.

“Coady picked up the last couple and finished with four-for. Patto (Patterson) bowled well again, being boring and bowling maidens, letting the pitch do a bit. It’s fascinating how quickly the conditions change here. One minute I’m bowling and feeling good, then the next thing it’s better for the seamers to be on.

“To have these sort of seamers in our attack, it’s great, and we use them when we can.

“Even Dave Willey came in and picked up two really crucial wickets even though he was the most expensive. Everyone chipped in.
“We’d be confident defending 200, but we want more.

“It’s coming out really nicely for me at the moment. I think I’ve been consistent.”

Close Yorkshire, trailing by 54 on first innings, have reached 5-0 from three overs in their second. Lyth has 3 and Brook 1.

6.33pm Fuller reaches a 73-ball fifty with a third six, over long-on against Patterson. 235-9 after 74, a lead of 54.

6.17pm Crane is bowled by Coad, squared up and lost off-stump. Hampshire are 225-9.

6.08pm We’re up and running again. Willey bowling to Fuller. 222-8.

5.44pm We are due to restart at 6.10pm with 11.4 overs remaining in the day.

4.28pm While it continues to rain hard here at Emerald Headingley, here’s a look around the grounds courtesy of the ECB Reporters Network……

Division One

Essex (6th) v Kent (4th)

Kent 118 for 5 still trail by 195 runs after Essex had been dismissed for 313. Kent’s batsmen have struggled against accurate bowling, scoring at around two runs an over. Off-spinner Simon Harmer has taken two wickets, bowling 20 overs unchanged.

Warwickshire (8th) v Surrey (5th)

After they had bowled out Warwickshire for 293, Surrey have struggled in reply. Off-spinner Jeetan Patel took three wickets in an over when he removed Dean Elgar, Ryan Patel and Will Jacks with Surrey struggling on 118 for 6.

Yorkshire (3rd) v Hampshire (2nd)

In a low-scoring game, Hampshire skipper Sam Northeast made 50 – the only half-century of the game so far, to help his side take a first-innings lead of 41 with two wickets left when rain returned at Headingley.

Division Two

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

After rain got under the covers overnight, and there were further showers, play was abandoned for the day without a ball bowled. Lancashire are 47 for 2 in reply to Gloucestershire’s 205.

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

The hosts were bowled out for 120 and conceded a first-innings deficit of 19 with Derbyshire seamer Tony Palladino taking his 15th five-wicket haul for the county. Rain delayed the start of Derbyshire’s second innings and they have reached 37 for 0.

Sussex (6th) v Glamorgan (4th)

Sussex captain Ben Brown completed his 17th first-class century with 131, his second successive Championship hundred. His team were dismissed for 420, a lead of 234. Glamorgan opener Charlie Hemphrey completed a pair when Glamorgan began their second innings.

Worcestershire (2nd) v Middlesex (9th)

After being bowled out for 221, Middlesex’s bowlers have fought back at New Road. Tom Helm, a quick bowler on England’s radar, took five wickets as the hosts were dismissed for 156. Middlesex are 28 for 2 in their second innings, a lead of 93.

Tea Hampshire secured the first batting bonus point of the match just before an early tea on day two as they claimed a first-innings lead of 41 with two wickets in hand against Yorkshire at Emerald Headingley.

Replying to 181, the visitors moved into the lead in the 58th over of their innings and have reached tea at 222-8 in the 69th.

Yorkshire struck four times in the session through Duanne Olivier, Ben Coad, Steve Patterson and David Willey, with Coad getting visiting captain Sam Northeast lbw for a well compiled 50 – the only half-century in the match so far.

Remarkably, 10 batsmen have fallen in the teens in this Specsavers County Championship Division One fixture played out in bowler-friendly conditions.

Rain forced tea 20 minutes early, with James Fuller, on first-class debut for Hampshire, hitting two sixes in an important unbeaten 44.

When the rain arrived, there were still 45.4 overs remaining in the day.

Olivier, Coad and Willey have all taken two wickets apiece for the hosts.

2.56pm Yorkshire battling hard and take their seventh wicket. Patterson traps Holland lbw for 19. Hampshire, trailing by one, are 180-7.

A man at the heart of an iconic World Cup moment in 2003

2.21pm Northeast gone! He’s trapped lbw by Coad for 50. Hampshire 143-6.

2.08pm Olivier gets Alsop caught at second slip by Lyth, at the second attempt, for 14. Hampshire are 133-5.

1.54pm An over done after lunch and Hampshire are 126-4, trailing by 55. Two boundaries from Alsop off Coad. Wicketkeeper Alsop spent the majority of the day off the field yesterday off the field through illness.

Lunch Yorkshire claimed three Hampshire wickets during an action-packed second morning at Emerald Headingley and must keep on striking if they are to fight back from being bowled out for 181 yesterday.

Hampshire started the day on 14-1 and fell to 93-4 before reaching lunch on 117-4 from 41 overs.

Duanne Olivier, off-spinner Dom Bess – in his first over – and David Willey claimed a wicket apiece, although the hosts were boosted by two giveaway wickets from Indian overseas Ajinkya Rahane and ex-South Africa limited overs international Rilee Rossouw.

Olivier claimed the first wicket of the morning.

Joe Weatherley was brilliantly caught one-handed by a diving Adam Lyth at second slip after the batsman had gloved a short ball.

The ball looped over the slips, only for Lyth to dive backwards and to his right to complete the catch. He also had to contend with Jack Leaning diving across him from third slip. That left Hampshire at 32-2 in the seventh full over of the day – the 17th of the innings.

Hampshire captain Sam Northeast is unbeaten on 43 at lunch, but he survived a run out scare on 13 and a caught behind chance on 21 off Bess.

The sharp chance to Jonny Tattersall came in the same over Rahane had been stumped for 31 having danced down the pitch, leaving the score at 80-3 in the 34th.

Rossouw then played one of the more curious innings you will see.

He hit a four and a six in his six balls and top-edged a huge swipe to leg against Willey to Tom Kohler-Cadmore peddling back from first slip as Hampshire fell to 93-4 after 35 overs.

12.53pm Rossouw gone! A brief shot a ball innings comes to an end as he top edges a heave to leg against Willey and is caught by Kohler-Cadmore running back from first slip – 12 off six balls and falls the ball after smashing a six over long-off. 93-4

12.45pm Northeast (21) edges Bess, with Tattersall getting a glove on it and deflecting it out of Lyth’s reach at slip. 81-3 in the 34th.

12.18pm David Willey is into the attack for the first time in the innings. Hampshire 59-2 in the 29th over.

It has been an eventful week for Willey. Firstly, he was left out of England’s Wold Cup squad as the selectors favoured Jofra Archer and then links with Warwickshire emerged. Willey is out of contract later this summer, but he is definitely a player Yorkshire are keen to keep hold of.

11.30am OUT! What a catch from Lyth at second slip, diving one-handed to his right to claim a looping effort as Weatherley gloves a short ball from Olivier. Lyth also had to contend with Leaning diving in front of him from third slip. 32-2.

11.23am Hampshire have made a solid start to day two, reaching 32-1. Yorkshire could really do with getting Ajinkya Rahane quickly. The Indian is the type to bat long, as he showed on the Isle of Wight last week with a century.

10.58am Some interesting news of our neighbours who are down in Cheltenham this week……

Gloucestershire and Lancashire players arrived for day two of the Specsavers County Championship match at Cheltenham College to find that a storm last night had left a wet area underneath the covers.

The weight of water from torrential rain had caused some to penetrate the covers, leaving a wet patch on a length at one end.

Umpires Jeff Evans and Paul Pollard delayed the start of play to see if the area would dry naturally and planned a further inspection at 11.30am.

There was concern that the nature of the pitch had changed and, while the rest of the playing area was fine, a lengthy delay at least looked certain, with the possibility that play might even be ruled out for the day.

10.45am Around the grounds…..

Division One

Yorkshire 181 v Hampshire 14-1, Emerald Headingley
Warwickshire 275-8 v Surrey, Edgbaston
Essex 303-8 v Kent, Chelmsford

Division Two

Worcestershire 64-3 v Middlesex 221, New Road
Sussex 208-5 v Glamorgan 186, Hove
Leicestershire 55-4 v Derbyshire 139, Grace Road
Gloucestershire 205 v Lancashire 47-2, Cheltenham

Good morning from Emerald Headingley.

Yesterday’s opening day didn’t go Yorkshire’s way as they were bowled out for 181 by Fidel Edwards inspired Hampshire.

The White Rose lost their last five wickets for just 11 runs after tea, with weather delaying or interrupting us on six seperate occasions – mainly rain.

That Ben Coad struck in the final over of the day was a significant boost, and it is hoped there is as much help on offer for the seamers today as there was yesterday.

Jack Leaning spoke last night about Yorkshire still being very much in the game.

In fairness, Edwards burst of four wickets in 12 balls on the way to a season’s best 5-49 made for excellent viewing. He bounded in from the Kirkstall Lane End and challenged the stumps at pace.

Let’s hope for more wickets today. It’s an ok start to the day weather wise – dry at least – so fingers crossed it stays like that all day and we see all of the 104 overs scheduled. Looks like we’ll get away at 11am.
