12.04pm – There will be no play today, unfortunately.

11.50am – There are four games due to be played around the country today – Uni games at Durham, Northampton, here and Notts. The only one in play is Notts v Cardiff, the hosts 74-0.

10.40am – The players will also take lunch at 12pm here.

9.30am – We have a delayed start and an inspection at 12pm here at Headingley.

8.30am – Good morning from Headingley, where it is dry and bright overhead but damp under foot ahead of day two.

There has been some overnight rain, and the grounds staff are peeling back the covers as we speak. There are some puddles on the edge of the square, left as the covers have been taken off.

They should disappear fairly quickly, but it’s unclear whether or not the rain has put paid to a start on time at 11am. We will let you know when we can.

Yesterday saw Yorkshire face 46.3 overs from 1.40pm, with George Hill top-scoring with 82 not out and Fin Bean adding 62.

Both players looked in good order against a Leeds/Bradford attack who started sloppily – understandable given it was their first bowl of any sort on grass in 2024 – but improved as the day went on.

You can read our match report and reaction pieces via the links below, the quotes largely relating to the fantastic news that England stars Harry Brook and Joe Root will be available for five early-season Championship games apiece and that captain Shan Masood is arriving in England later this week to start the season.
