Tim Bresnan

“We’ve got a very useful lead, and it’s massive for us. We said this morning ‘If we can turn up and be on the better end of all three sessions, we’ll be in a great position to try and get a win’.

“It’s nice to finally get five wickets because it doesn’t happen very often. I felt in decent rhythm, and the boys applied a lot of pressure this morning and last night (day one), so it was a nice to finish them off.

“(Lack of five wicket hauls). It’s probably down to not having the new ball. Usually, bowling with the new ball is easier to get a hatful of wickets rather than three or four. Our new ball bowlers seem to do the job most often. It’s up to Steve Patterson and myself to do the grunt work and pick up twos and threes.

“I’ve not been really good enough this year, so it’s nice to finally get a few runs and wickets and help the team towards winning games.”

5.57pm Lyth reaches his fifty off 114 balls with 6×4s. 148-4, a lead of 175. Six overs remaining.

5.22pm Adam Lyth and Tom Kohler-Cadmore have shared an unbroken 51 for the fourth wicket and have done it in some style. Yorkshire 132-3. Ah, make that 132-4. Kohler-Cadmore caught behind off Holland for 33. The lead is 159.

4.45pm Ballance gone! He’s trapped lbw by Dawson, 11. 81-3. Yorkshire lead by 108.

Tea Report

Yorkshire enjoyed a productive, but shortened, second afternoon against Hampshire at Emerald Headingley.

The White Rose are in a healthy position as they pursue a Specsavers County Championship win which would secure their Division One safety with one round still to go next week.

Hampshire, replying to Yorkshire’s first-innings 184, were bowled out for 157 in the early stages of the afternoon – delayed by 50 minutes for rain.

Ben Coad trapped Gareth Berg lbw, with Tim Bresnan finishing with career best figures of 5-28 from 13 overs.

Yorkshire then built on their lead of 27, reaching tea at 65-2 – a lead of 92.

Jeet Raval was caught behind off Fidel Edwards, before at the start of the afternoon’s final over Liam Dawson’s first ball had Harry Brook lbw for 28.

3.40pm Raval gone! He’s been caught behind off Edwards, 9. 26-1. 53 lead.

3.30pm Yorkshire are 24-0 in their second innings, leading Hampshire by 51. Adam Lyth has 13 and Jeet Raval 9.

2.41pm We’re set for the resumption, with 12 overs lost from the day’s allocation. 52 to bowl. Hampshire 156-9, trailing by 28.

1.51pm It has started raining, not heavily however. But we will have a delay to the afternoon session.

Lunch Report

Tim Bresnan has helped put Yorkshire in a strong position against Hampshire at Emerald Headingley, completing his first Championship five-for in a little over two years.

Bresnan took the first three Hampshire wickets to fall during the second morning of the penultimate Specsavers Division One match of 2018, with the visitors reaching lunch at 156-9 in response to 184.

They advanced from 79-5 overnight, with Bresnan claiming five for 27 from 12 overs so far.

Hampshire scored 77 in 40 overs this morning.

Bresnan, 33-years-old, had Kyle Abbott lbw for eight, Tom Alsop caught at second slip for 24 and Liam Dawson superbly caught and bowled one-handed for 10 as the score fell to 110-8 in the 42nd over.

Matthew Waite bowled Ian Holland to delay lunch with Hampshire nine down, but Gareth Berg and Fidel Edwards held out and will resume on 24 and nine respectively.

12.15pm Hampshire 124-8 in the 50th over of their reply to 184. It has been slow progress from the visitors this morning around the wickets, which wasn’t what I was expecting to be honest. I was thinking they might have a dart in tough conditions. Holland and Berg together.

11.44am Dawson gone! Bresnan gets him caught and bowled one-handed off a leading edge. Super catch. Bresnan has five-for. 110-8.

11.30am Hampshire have moved to 106-6. The weather this morning has the feeling of early April rather than mid to late September. Not the day to be grazing at long-leg.

A quick reminder of a special moment from yesterday

10.58am A couple of plastic bags are whizzing around the outfield in front of the Carnegie Pavilion, highlighting the blustery conditions. Hampshire 90-5.

10.52am A quiet start to the day has seen Hampshire advance to 85-5 in reply to 184.

10.28am A reminder, you can watch the live stream of this game here

Good morning from Emerald Headingley, where it is bright and breezy ahead of day two of our Specsavers County Championship match with Hampshire.

This penultimate round fixture is fascinatingly poised despite the loss of 17 overs to weather yesterday. We have the room to make up eight of them later on today depending on bad light.

Hampshire, replying to Yorkshire’s 184, reached close at 79-5, with two wickets each for Tim Bresnan and Jack Brooks.

Assuming Worcester lose their match at Essex, with the hosts 252-5 in reply to 94 all out, Yorkshire will need just nine more points to secure safety – a tally which would eliminate Lancashire from the race.

Enjoy the day.
