Yorkshire’s Tom Loten said:

“It was good to get a couple of poles even though they weren’t as early as I’d have liked and it’s not gone the way we wanted it to.
“But it was good to be able to show a bit of character, stick in and get a couple at the end.
“I feel I bowled better today. Yesterday, a few nerves crept in and there were a few loose balls.
“I was happy with how I bowled today. They’re in a good position, looking to score, but I thought we kept fighting and controlled the run-rate to an extent.
“We now have to try and bat big and bat long. That’s the only chat in the dressing room.”

6.29pm – Close Yorkshire end day two on 53-2 from 22 overs, Hill 15 and Loten 3. We are replying to Lancashire’s 566-9, which included Jennings 238.

6.16pm As the day heads towards a conclusion, we have a delay as Hill receives attention following a blow on the helmet from an Anderson short ball. The usual concussion checks are taking place. Yorkshire 52-2 in the 20th of 22 overs to bowl. Hill 14, nightwatchman Loten 3.

6.02pm WICKET Malan caught by a diving Parkinson at mid-wicket off Balderson. Yorkshire 48-2 in the 17th.

5.53pm We have seven overs remaining in the day, with Yorkshire 41-1 from 15. Hill has 12 and Malan 17.

5.33pm Some encouragement for Yorkshire following the early wicket, as the score moves to 31-1 after 10 overs of 21 tonight. Hill 10, Malan 9.

5.01pm WICKET Lyth trapped lbw by Bailey for 10. Yorkshire are 11-1 in the second over.

Lyth was trying to leave alone to one which was angled back in at him. Malan in at three to join Hill.

4.43pm WICKET Wood caught at deep backward square-leg by Hill off Loten, 39. Lancashire declare immediately on 566-9 in the 168th over. 22 overs remain in the day.

4.20pm WICKET What a way to claim your maiden first-class wicket. Loten takes a superb one-handed return catch following a firm drive from Bailey. Lancashire 527-8 in the 162nd over.

Tea Report Dom Bess struck three times as Yorkshire claimed four wickets in all during the second afternoon against Lancashire at Headingley.

Bess trapped Dane Vilas (82) and George Balderson lbw and had Phil Salt (37) caught at slip, while Keaton Jennings was run out for a record 238 by Jordan Thompson.

Lancashire have advanced 521-7 from 160 overs.

Jennings posted Lancashire’s highest ever individual score in Roses first-class cricket, beating Graham Lloyd’s 225 here in a first-class friendly in 1997.

3.53pm – Tea Four wickets for Yorkshire in the afternoon, three of them to Bess. Lancashire 521-7 after 160 overs. Wood 16, Bailey 12.

3.37pm WICKET Salt caught by Lyth at slip off Bess for 37. Third wicket for Bess. Lancashire are 504-7 in the 156th over.

2.57pm Here’s a quiz question for you. Is there a county with more culinary related names on their staff around the circuit than Lancashire, who have Phil Salt, Graham Onions (coach) and Danny Lamb in their ranks. You could even add Jos Buttler to that list if he’s going to serve you!

2.49pm WICKET More success for Yorkshire, their third wicket of the afternoon. Balderson trapped lbw by Bess for 4. Lancashire are now 471-6 in the 143rd over.

2.35pm WICKET Jennings run out following a mix-up with Salt for a career best 238 – Lancashire’s highest score in Roses cricket. Well played. 464-5 in the 139th over.

Salt clipped a Bess delivery into mid-wicket region and set off, then said no when Thompson picked the ball up and threw to Bess at the non-striker’s end. Jennings well short. But he gets a standing ovation from supporters of both teams.

2.01pm WICKET Vilas trapped lbw sweeping at Bess for 82. Lancashire 426-4 in the 131st over. That breaks a stand of 177 with Jennings, who has 212.

1.47pm Lancashire are 419-3 after 127 overs. Jennings, with 206, represents his county’s joint highest scorer in Roses Championship cricket. Stuart Law also made 206 here in 2007.

Lunch Report Yorkshire have suffered more Roses frustration at Headingley having failed to take a wicket during the second morning of their LV= Insurance County Championship match.

Keaton Jennings has become only Lancashire’s fifth double centurion in Roses first-class history, reaching lunch on 202 not out.

He has helped Lancashire advance from 288-3 from 96 overs overnight to 412-3 from 125 at lunch.

?Jennings and Dane Vilas, the latter unbeaten on 80, have shared an unbroken 163 for the fourth wicket having come together late on day one.

For the first half of the morning, Lancashire took few risks in a bid to build their lead.

But, as we have approached lunch, the visitors have accelerated through their captain Vilas, who reached his fifty with a pulled six off Haris Rauf and then lofted Dom Bess over the ropes towards the Clean Slate Pavilion.

Jennings reached his double hundred off 361 balls, including 26 boundaries, in the closing stages of the morning.

He is closing in on both Lancashire’s highest Roses first-class score (Graham Lloyd 225) and their highest in the Championship (Mohammad Yousuf 206).

1pm – Lunch Lancashire have reached 412-3 from 125 overs, batting through the session unbroken through Jennings (202) and Vilas (80).

12.54pm Jennings has reached his double hundred, off 361 balls with 26×4s. A fine innings. Lancashire are 409-3 after 123 overs.

12.43pm It has been another morning of frustration for Yorkshire, who have not yet managed to break through as Lancashire move to 391-3 in the 121st over. Jennings has 195 and Vilas 66. Their partnership stands at 142.

12.15pm Vilas has just reached his fifty off 81 balls with a pulled six off Rauf, taking 19 off the 114th over of the innings. Lancashire have moved to 361-3, with their captain and Jennings (183) sharing an unbroken 112.

11.57am We’re through 110 overs, with Lancashire 330-3, Jennings 179 and Vilas 25. They finish with three batting points to Yorkshire one for bowling. Loten and Patterson currently taking up the home attack.

11.18am Quiet start to the day here at Headingley. Lancashire, against Thompson and Patterson, have moved to 300-3 in the 101st over, the fifth of the morning. Vilas has moved to 22 and beyond 10,000 first-class runs. Jennings 153.

11am We’re up and running with Thompson bowling to Vilas. Lancashire 288-3.

10.25am You can recap our day one match report and reaction piece from Steve Patterson below.
