Yorkshire’s Tom Kohler-Cadmore

“It’s frustrating the position we’re in. People have tried to dig in and put value on their wickets, but I felt like they’ve bowled nicely.
“No batsman has scored a fifty. Matt Fisher played well, but there’s been me, Harry Brook, Tim Bresnan all scoring 30s and Jonny Tattersall 20-odd. In those positions, we need to be kicking on.
“Yesterday we were so far behind and away from our best. Sam Billings, I thought, played a proper four-day knock. He left the ball beautifully. Stevens just took the game away from us.
“Today, it’s been how you’d expect a day to go. But the fact they got 480 in a day has put us massively under pressure. Had they been 250, which is what you’d think was the best they could hope for from 39 for five, it would be an even game.
“All day long, it’s had a bit in the surface. It’s been a solid day of cricket where both teams have battled hard.
“We’re in the position we’re in, and we have to put value on our wickets when we bat again. But we also can’t afford to just survive. We have to look to score because all the pressure will be off them. We have to find the right balance.”

6.02pm Close. Kent 2-0 in their second innings, leading by 215. Hard-fought day, including five wickets for Milnes and 47 not out from Fisher.

5.48pm Patel gone! He’s bowled sweeping at Rayner, 20. Fisher 47 no. 269 all out. Kent are batting again with two overs remaining in the day. Milnes 5-87.

5.22pm Olivier gone! He’s been trapped lbw by Podmore, 10. 244-8.

4.07pm Bresnan gone! He loses his off stump to Milnes, who has four wickets, for 39. Yorkshire 194-7.

Division One

Essex v Surrey (Chelmsford)

Dan Lawrence compiled his sixth Championship half-century of the season to help steady Essex as they looked to maintain their title challenge.
Essex appeared to be in a degree of trouble when Sir Alastair Cook departed with the score on 53 for 3. But in a bright unbroken partnership of 68 with Ravi Bopara, Lawrence advanced the score to 121 without further loss at tea, 53 runs behind Surrey’s first-innings 174.

Hampshire v Somerset (Ageas Bowl)

Kyle Abbott produced the best Specsavers County Championship figures for three years as Hampshire took a 54-run lead over leaders Somerset.
Abbott’s 9 for 40 was the best return since Warwickshire’s Chris Woakes’ 9 for 36 in May 2016.
Somerset hit back by leaving Hampshire 34 for 4 as Lewis Gregory, Davey and Craig Overton shared the wickets with the new ball.

Nottinghamshire v Warwickshire (Trent Bridge)

Warwickshire have reached tea on 169 for 2 in reply to relegated Nottinghamshire’s 498.
Dominic Sibley, in front of watching England selector James Taylor, is undefeated on 68.

Yorkshire v Kent (Emerald Headingley)

Kent have continued to chip away at the Yorkshire wickets during the second day, although they will be frustrated their fielding has not made the task easier.
Replying to a first-innings 482 for 8 declared, Yorkshire have advanced from 80 for 3 at lunch to 180 for 6 from 64 overs at tea, scoring 100 runs in the session from 35 overs. Seamers Matt Milnes and Harry Podmore shared the afternoon wickets.

Division Two

Derbyshire v Sussex (Derby)

Sussex’s chances of promotion have been dealt a blow by an unbroken century stand by Derbyshire openers Billy Godleman and Luis Reece on the second afternoon at Derby.
The visitors were well placed when they took a first innings lead of 93 with George Garton scoring his maiden first-class 50 but Reece followed his five wicket haul with a brilliant century between lunch and tea off 102 balls while Godleman was 53 not out and passed 1,000 runs for the season. It took Derbyshire to 170 for 0, a lead of 77.

Glamorgan v Leicestershire (Sophia Gardens)

Leicestershire, in reply to Glamorgan’s 435, collapsed to 111 for 6, losing five wickets in 35 balls after openers Hassan Azad and captain Paul Horton had put on 50 for the first wicket. On-loan Samit Patel took three of the wickets.

Lancashire v Middlesex (Old Trafford)

Middlesex’s batsmen continued their domination of the second day and by tea the visitors were 252 for 8, only eight runs short of taking an unexpected first-innings lead. Their revival from an overnight 39 for 6 was led by John Simpson, who was 137 not out, having made his second century of the season but first against the county of his birth.

Northamptonshire v Durham (Northampton)

Richard Levi and Adam Rossington steadied promotion-chasing Northamptonshire as they built their lead over Durham to 203, on 117 for 4 in their second innings. They had been 65 for 4 after losing 3 for 11 in 21 balls before the revival.

Worcestershire v Gloucestershire (Worcester)

Gloucestershire’s new ball attack of Ryan Higgins and David Payne revived their promotion bid as they reduced Worcestershire to 90 for 8, a lead of just 76, in their second innings.
Higgins picked up 3-18 and Payne 2-21 in their respective seven over spells. It followed on from a crucial stand of 62 for the eighth wicket between the pair which helped their side gain a narrow advantage.

Tea Yorkshire remain on the back foot against Kent at Emerald Headingley.

The White Rose, replying to 482-8 declared, have advanced from 80-3 at lunch to 180-6 at tea.

Kent have enjoyed a mixed day. While they are firmly on top in this penultimate round Specsavers County Championship fixture, they will be frustrated at having dropped six catches in all.

Wicketkeeper Ollie Robinson has let two slip, as have Ollie Rayner and Zak Crawley in the slips.

Yorkshire need to reach 333 to avoid the follow-on, with the bulk of the work needing to be done by unbeaten seventh-wicket pair Tim Bresnan and Matthew Fisher, who have so far added 39 unbroken and will begin the evening on 36 and 10 respectively.

Seamers Matt Milnes and Harry Podmore shared the afternoon wickets, with the former trapping Harry Brook lbw with one that kept low before bowling Tom Kohler-Cadmore as he offered no stroke.

Kohler-Cadmore and Brook, who both made 36, had shared 59 for the fourth wicket either side of lunch to steady the ship from 36 for three.

When Kohler-Cadmore fell, Yorkshire were 106 for five after 37 before Jonny Tattersall was caught at third slip by Zak Crawley off Podmore for 27 (141-6 in the 47th).

Bresnan and Fisher have held firm since.

3.20pm Bresnan and Fisher have been together for almost an hour. Early shoots of recovery, but plenty still to do. Yorkshire 179-6 with tea in around 10 mins.

2.47pm Yorkshire need to get to 333 to avoid having to follow-on, although given the nature of the pitch and the decent weather forecast it has to be in some doubt as to whether Kent would enforce. They have also dropped six catches today. Yorkshire 156-6, Bresnan 20 and Fisher 6.

2.25pm OUT! Tattersall caught at third slip by Crawley off Podmore, 27. 141-6..

1.45pm Kohler-Cadmore gone! He’s been bowled by Milnes for 36. Attempted to leave alone, only for his off stump to be uprooted. 106-5.

1.33pm This may be the last first-class cricket at Emerald Headingley this summer, but there remains the Yorkshire Premier final here on Saturday between Woodlands from Bradford and Sheriff Hutton Bridge from the YPL North. Matthew Fisher, Ed Barnes and Karl Carver could all play for Sheriff Hutton Bridge.

Also, there is a charity match involving Harry Brook and George Hill taking place at Burley CC.

Burley are hosting a fundraising fixture in support of neighbours Olicanian CC, whose clubhouse was burnt down recently.

The match starts at 1pm with the bar open all day, BBQ and food after the game.

1.17pm It’s been an encouraging start to the afternoon. Brook has cut Stevens for four and he and Kohler-Cadmore have just brought up their 50 partnership. 88-3 in reply to 482-8 dec.

Lunch Darren Stevens claimed two second morning wickets, added to 237 with the bat on day one, as Kent continue to have the better of things at Emerald Headingley.

They have control of this penultimate round Specsavers County Championship fixture, which is key in the battle for third in the Division One table.

Stevens underpinned Kent’s remarkable recovery from 39-5 to 482-8 on day one, a score on which they declared overnight.

The 43-year-old then struck in a miserly eight-over new ball spell as Yorkshire reached lunch on 80-3 from 29 overs.

Yorkshire were 36-3 having lost Adam Lyth, Gary Ballance and debutant opener Matty Revis (nine) for single-figure scores.

Stevens had Lyth caught at second slip and Ballance lbw in the eighth over before Matt Milnes, who replaced the seamer after a spell of 2-9 from eight overs, struck with his fourth ball in the 18th over to get Revis caught behind.

Revis was dropped on nought and eight, two of four catches which have gone begging for the visitors.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Harry Brook have since steadied the White Rose ship, sharing an unbroken 44. Both have played nicely and will resume on 27 and 22 after lunch.

11.46am Revis is caught behind off Milnes for 9. Yorkshire are 36-3 in the 18th over – Milnes fourth ball.

11.42am Stevens is replaced by Milnes at Kirkstall Lane End with figures of 2-9 from eight. 36-2 off 17 overs.

11.12am Escape for Revis, who is dropped at first slip by Rayner off Stevens on 8. Going to his left, but should have been taken. Yorkshire 26-2.

11.05am Stevens has struck again. He’s trapped Ballance lbw, and it’s 17-2.

11am Breakthrough for Kent, and it’s that man Stevens. Lyth edges to second slip. Good low catch by du Plessis diving across first slip. 9-1.

10.25am Kent have declared on 482-8.

Good morning from Emerald Headingley.

It is a lovely late summer morning. There is a bit of a nip in the air, but the sun is shining and we’re all set to go for day two, starting at 10.30am.

What an incredible day yesterday was.

Of course, after the early burst with the new ball, Yorkshire were off colour with the ball. But how well did Darren Stevens play?

His career best 237 included nine sixes and helped send records tumbling as the visitors racked up 482-8, also including 138 for Sam Billings.

I still find it remarkable they were able to get up to 482. I’d have been surprised by that even had they had a well structured day. You know, 100-1, 200-3, 350-4, that kind of thing. But from 39-5!

Stevens got a warm ovation from both Yorkshire’s players and supporters, which was great to see.

Today, Yorkshire must respond. There’s absolutely no need to try and match the Kent scoring rate, and there is so much time left in this game that all results are not yet out of the equation.

Good luck to Matthew Revis, our 17-year-old opener on debut. He will be out there facing the new ball at some point this morning.

It wouldn’t be a shock if Kent declared overnight to take advantage of the early morning help on offer with the new ball.

Enjoy the day.
