11.56pm Some reaction from Steve Patterson
“I thought we did really well with the bat, and I was really pleased with the score we put on the board. We were confident coming out with the ball.
“We would have liked some early wickets, but it didn’t quite happen. Josh Poysden and Josh Shaw bowled beautifully through the middle and pulled it back, but we weren’t quite as good as we should have been with the ball, myself especially. It’s cost us.”
11.21pm Yorkshire have lost by six wickets as Sohail Akhtar hits century for Lahore. Phil Salt 37 not out. Two balls to spare.

9.10pm Six overs to go and Yorkshire are 130-3. Ballance and Tattersall have shared 50, but that’s where the partnership ends. As I type, Tattersall is bowled by Raja for 26. 130-4 in the 15th.
8.51pm Yorkshire 93-3 after 10 overs and going nicely. After the early fireworks from Brook and Lyth, the more measured approach of Ballance and Tattersall is in operation.

8.32pm Yorkshire 59-2 after seven overs, with Harry Brook caught at long-on off Afridi.

Andrew Gale talks Abu Dhabi T20
“You only have to look at the calibre of cricketers walking around the hotel (all six teams are staying in the same hotel), there’s some big names here,” said the coach.
“You want to test your skills against some of the best players in the world.
“Every game counts. If they have a good game here, they put their names in the hat for next season.
“You only need one or two performances to convince the captain or myself that they can do it at this level.
“There are definitely places up for grabs.”
Good afternoon (just morning in the UK) from Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
We are here for the Abu Dhabi T20 competition featuring Auckland Aces, Boost Defenders, Hobart Hurricanes, Lahore Qalandars, The Titans and Yorkshire.
Yorkshire play this evening at 8pm (5pm UK) against Lahore to start their Group A campaign.
Beforehand, however, it is Auckland against Boost from Afghanistan in Group B. That starts in just over an hour and will feature the likes of Colin Ingram, Kyle Abbott and Ben Cox. A fledgling Auckland side will be captained by Craig Cachopa, formerly of Sussex.
