Yorkshire’s Jonny Tattersall said:
“I’m fairly happy with my performance, but we’d have liked a few more runs on the board.
“Overall, we’ve done well. We battled hard today and have given ourselves a chance to push for a victory tomorrow.
“It was a good last-wicket partnership between Patto and Coady to get us up to 200 on the board.
“New ball in the morning, hopefully we can make some early inroads. If we can apply a bit of pressure, you never know what can happen.
“It was tough going out there with the bat. It was doing a bit all day. Even when Abbas was bowling with the older ball, he was still getting it to seam around.”

Tea Report We are still no nearer to knowing who will win the ongoing LV= Insurance County Championship clash between Yorkshire and Hampshire at Scarborough.
Heading into the evening session of day three, Yorkshire have reached 185-4 from 80 overs in their second innings, a lead of 126.
Hampshire claimed only the wicket of Adam Lyth for 59 during an afternoon, which started with Yorkshire at 98-3, leading by 39.
Lyth edged James Fuller behind down the leg-side, leaving the hosts at 119-4 in the 58th over, a lead of 60.
Yorkshire have benefitted from four dropped catches today, three of which were in the afternoon.
Unbeaten duo Jonny Tattersall and Matthew Waite were beneficiaries, both by wicketkeeper Ben Brown off the seam of Fuller diving away one-handed to his right.
Tattersall was on 26 and Waite on 11, and they advanced to 58 and 38 respectively, sharing 66 unbroken for the fifth wicket.
Progress has been considered for Yorkshire against a Hampshire attack who have been excellent throughout this fixture. They have rarely given anything loose.
It took until the 176th over of the match for the first over of spin to be bowled in the match, which came from Hampshire left-armer Liam Dawson.
Tattersall reached his fifty off 108 balls moments after the 100-run lead had been secured at 161-4 in the 75th over.
Runs did come with more frequency towards the end of the session, 35 of them in the eight overs before tea. The new ball is due immediately at the start of the evening.
4pm – Tea Tea. Excellent afternoon for Yorkshire, who lose on Lyth for 59 in advancing to 185-4 from 80 overs. Tattersall 58 and Waite 38. The stand is 66 and, more importantly, the lead is 126. New ball due immediately tea. Key period ahead.
3.46pm Tattersall reaches an excellent fifty, off 108 balls with 7×4s. Yorkshire are 163-4, leading by 104. Waite has 24.
3.44pm Yorkshire can be very happy with their day’s work so far. We are 161-4, leading by 102. Tattersall has 48 and Waite 24. Considered but impressive progress.
3.13pm We are 175 overs through this game, and we are about to see the first over of spin from Liam Dawson. Yorkshire are 136-4, leading by 77.
3.05pm Hampshire have dropped a fourth catch in the last 10 minutes. Waite on 11 off Fuller, keeper Brown the culprit. Yorkshire now 136-4, a lead of 77. Waite 13 and Tattersall 34.
2.36pm WICKET Lyth caught behind down leg off Fuller, 59. Yorkshire are 119-4, leading by 60. Tattersall on 30 is joined at the crease by Waite.
2.27pm Yorkshire have had issues with catches going down this season, but today they have been the beneficiaries. Hampshire have dropped three, including two in the last two overs. Tattersall on 24 by keeper Brown off Fuller and then Lyth on 56 by Vince at first slip off Abbott. The latter was as simple as slip chances come. It’s 111-3 in the 56th over, a lead of 52.
2.12pm Hampshire have a new ball available in just under 29 overs, pretty much just after tea. If Yorkshire can get through this session, relatively unscathed and build the lead, they will be in a handy position. 104-3 in the 52nd, a lead of 45. Lyth 54 and Tattersall 20.
1.52pm We are up and running again after lunch. Yorkshire 98-3 with that lead of 39. Abbott is bowling to Lyth on 53.
Lunch Report Yorkshire have enjoyed an encouraging third morning against Hampshire, wiping off their first-innings deficit and losing only two wickets in the session.
Having conceded a 59-run lead, Yorkshire resumed on 23-1 and have since advanced to reach lunch on 98-3 from 46 overs, a lead of 39.
Adam Lyth’s unbeaten half-century – he is 53 not out – backed up the 183 he scored in the first innings against Surrey here a fortnight ago, and he has underpinned a so far decent second-innings effort.
Tom Kohler-Cadmore (19) and Will Fraine (10) were the morning wickets to fall.
Kohler-Cadmore was caught behind off Kyle Abbott, the ball going through to keeper Ben Brown off a combination of inside-edge and pad.
Fraine was then bowled by the medium pace of Ian Holland, leaving Yorkshire at 66-3 in the 32nd over of the innings.
Lyth has gained a large proportion of his runs on the drove, through has edged wide of and through the slips. He was the subject of two confident appeals for caught behind, but both times bowler Keith Barker did not join in.
Jonny Tattersall will begin the afternoon on 15.
1.10pm – Lunch Game firmly in the balance as Yorkshire reach 98-3 from 46 overs, leading by 39. Lyth 53 and Tattersall 15.
1.03pm Lyth reaches his latest fifty off 138 balls with 7×4s. Yorkshire are 94-3 and lead by 35.
12.34pm Just over half an hour to lunch here at Scarborough, where Yorkshire have moved to 86-3 in the second innings, leading by 27. Lyth has 47 and Tattersall 9.
12.12pm WICKET Fraine bowled by Holland, 10. Yorkshire 66-3, leading by seven.
12.01pm Yorkshire are 59-2 after 29 overs, scores level. Lyth 31 and Fraine 8.
11.55am It has so far been an encouraging first hour for Yorkshire who, at 53-2, trail by only six runs now. Lyth 30 and Fraine 2. It has been a new ball pitch with wickets falling in both morning sessions.
11.21am WICKET Kohler-Cadmore caught behind off Abbott for 20. Yorkshire are 39-2 in the 19th over, trailing by 20.
11.05am Sandwiched in between two driven boundaries for Lyth off Abbas and Abbott, he has been dropped at third slip. He has 18 of 32-1 in the 16th over. Yorkshire trailing by 27.
10.55am We have 104 overs in the day today, with the umpires on their way out to the middle.
10.41am 20 minutes to go before we get going here at Scarborough, where sun cream will be required in the stands today.
8.37am Scarborough was a hive of activity last night, with plenty of folk out in the bars watching England’s brilliant 4-0 semi-final win over Sweden in the women’s Euros at Bramall Lane in Sheffield.
Congratulations to the Lionesses. Good luck at Wembley on Sunday. Go and bring it home.
8.35am Let us also have a look around the grounds at what else is going on before we get going here later this morning.

8.32am If you want to recap yesterday’s action, you can do via our Tom Jones inspired Match Report. The Welshman was in town at the Open Air Theatre last night, so we couldn’t resist the odd pun. Sex Bomb didn’t make it, though! You can also read Jordan Thompson’s reaction piece.
Good morning from North Marine Road, where the sun is shining.
It is a glorious morning ahead of day three against Hampshire.
This is a huge day in this fixture. Yorkshire will start it on 23-1 in the second innings, trailing by 36, with Adam Lyth and Tom Kohler-Cadmore at the crease.
If the hosts can get to a lead of 175-200 today, it will be game on.
Wickets have fallen in both morning sessions so far. Yorkshire were 33-6 on day one before four wickets fell in around five overs as rain also played its part yesterday.
It has been such a helter-skelter game so far. Fingers crossed, it settles down today. If it does, you would have to say Yorkshire will be in an excellent position heading into day four.
There will be a live stream available once again via the Match Centre tab at the top of the page. We are all set for an 11am start. Enjoy the day.
