Match Centre 

4.27pm – And we have more rain. Covers back on.

4.18pm – We have another planned start of 4.45pm with 28 overs to be bowled.

4.11pm – More rain has hit us. It was only a sharp shower, but enough to force the covers on. The umpires are out having another look.

3.56pm – We have another planned start at 4.30pm with 32 overs remaining in the day.

3.45pm – We won’t now be starting at 3.50pm. The covers are back on, and is there is a nasty looking cloud in the distance.

3.29pm – We will have 43 overs in the day.

Oh no, it’s raining again.

3.11pm – We will be starting at 3.50pm. Overs TBC.

3.09pm – The umpires have just inspected, so we await news. But the ground staff are rolling the matting off the pitch, which is a good sign.

2.23pm – Adam Lyth, who yesterday chalked up another career milestone:  “I didn’t realise I was that close to getting 12,000 Championship runs for the club. It’s a proud moment, and hopefully there’s many more to tick off.” 

2.11pm – Looking around the grounds, they’re off for the day at Durham and Derby and delayed here and at Lancashire, where they have played but have been taken off for rain. Play is taking place everywhere else.

2.08pm – The umpires will take another look at 3pm.

1.13pm – The umpires, Newell and Shantry, have called for another inspection at 2pm.

12.34pm – The ground staff are in the final stages of taking the covers off now. They have been challenged by the high winds, but they’ve just about got there.

11.14am – Despite the sun shining, the covers remain on and have been battened down with some weights – owing much to the really high winds.

10.42am – There’s currently no play anywhere in the country. Day three at Durham (v Hampshire) has already been abandoned.

10.07am – Our Academy and EPP players are having their photos taken in the East Stand this morning. Batter Noah Kelly is posing here for club photographer Allan McKenzie.

9.11am – The sun’s out now, and the ground staff are out there mopping up.

8.40am – Good morning from Headingley, where the scene is not particularly great weather wise. The covers are on, there has clearly been plenty of overnight rain, and it continues to fall as we speak.

The likelihood is that we will be in for another lengthy delay. We will bring you news when we can.

Yesterday saw Leicestershire fight back well from 164-5 overnight and 215-8 in the early stages of day two to post 354 in the first innings. Ben Mike was their star with a counter-attacking 90 from number nine before he claimed two wickets as Yorkshire replied with 72-2.

Matt Milnes finished with the pick of Yorkshire’s figures, an excellent 4-73, while George Hill finished with three.

Yorkshire were targeting a full day’s batting today to get themselves in a position where they could potentially hunt down a victory tomorrow. Unfortunately, valuable time looks set to be taken out of the game.

Yesterday saw Adam Lyth close on 43 not out, passing 12,000 career runs in County Championship cricket. He will pursue a 33rd career first-class century when the weather allows.
