Yorkshire’s Tom Kohler-Cadmore

“I’m delighted to contribute in this game more than I have in recent weeks. But the main thing is getting a score for the team, and we’re now in a good position to win the game.
“I didn’t change anything (from earlier in the season), I just stayed out there for longer! All year, I’ve just found ways to get out and haven’t been gotten out that much.
“I was watchful, and thankfully this time I got through.
“The pitch determined the way I played, and they bowled quite nicely at me. I left more balls than normal.
“Harry played beautifully. He got himself in and put them under pressure. That he didn’t have many dot balls was the highlight of his innings.
“Everybody can see how talented he is and how good he’s going to be.
“We’d have taken that position at the start of the day. Tomorrow morning is going to be a key passage of play. If we can get a couple of early wickets and put them under the pump, we can keep driving it.”

6.17pm Close. Somerset, replying to 520, close on 76-4 from 31 overs. Hildreth has 36 of them. Earlier, TKC and Brook both completed centuries for Yorkshire. Excellent day.

5.48pm England 149-4 in the 37th. Buttler and Stokes in and set on 31 and 33.

5.35pm Bartlett gone! He’s been caught at mid-on by a tumbling Patterson having miscued a short ball from Olivier. 49-4 in the 19th.

5.07pm Ali gone! He’s been caught at second slip by Lyth off Olivier for 4. Somerset are 31-2.

4.56pm Oh heck! England are in bother at 89-4 after 24 overs chasing 242. Buttler and Stokes in.

Tea Harry Brook, like Tom Kohler-Cadmore earlier, posted his first Specsavers County Championship century of the season as Yorkshire ploughed on beyond 500 against Somerset on day two at Emerald Headingley.

At tea, Yorkshire, who were 386-6 at lunch, were bowled out for 520 inside 161 overs, leaving them with 31 overs of bowling to do after tea.

Brook played second fiddle in an eighth-wicket partnership of 105 inside 20 overs with South African Test spinner Keshav Maharaj, whose maverick style of batting brought him 72 off 81 balls.

They advanced the score from 398-7, with Brook later finishing with 101 off 128 balls.

Somerset struck four times in the session, three going to the off-spin of Dom Bess (4-130 from 42 overs).

Matthew Fisher was caught at short-leg off Bess, who later accounted for Maharaj caught at wide long-on, leaving Yorkshire at 503-8.

Maharaj, dropped on eight at deep mid-wicket by George Bartlett off Bess, took all the pressure off Brook as he moved towards three figures.

Bess had Steve Patterson caught behind before Brook reached his second career four-day century off 127 balls with 11 fours just before tea, ending a near 10-over period which saw him manipulate the strike from last man Duanne Olivier, turning down singles with the Somerset field set back on the rope.

Tom Abell wrapped up the Yorkshire innings by getting Brook caught at long-on by Azhar Ali.

3.51pm HUNDRED! Brook gets the second of his career, his first of the season, off 127 balls with 11×4s. Excellent. Yorkshire now 520-9 after 159 overs.

3.09pm Stand of 102 between Brook and Maharaj off not much slower than a run a ball. It’s 500-7.

3pm Maharaj with 57 from 68 balls has taken all the pressure off Brook in terms of run-scoring in pursuit of a potential declaration. Brook has 86, and it’s 485-7.

2.44pm Brook (81) and Maharaj (44) have shared 69 for the eighth wicket. 467-7.

1.44pm Early stages of the afternoon and Yorkshire are 391-6. At Lord’s, New Zealand are 173-5 after 39 overs.

Lunch Tom Kohler-Cadmore completed a fine first century of the Specsavers County Championship summer during a nip and tuck second morning against Somerset at Emerald Headingley.

Yorkshire remain in control against the Division One leaders having advanced from 282-3 overnight to 386-6 from 126 overs at lunch.

Kohler-Cadmore advanced from 77 not out to 100 off 204 balls, including 16 fours and was out for 102 two balls later. Harry Brook also reached 50 not out.

Kohler-Cadmore fell alongside nightwatchman Josh Shaw and Jonny Tattersall, with the latter undone by extra bounce from Jack Brooks, something which will not disappoint the hosts as they will have plenty of bowling to do in pursuit of victory.

Shaw was bowled off the inside-edge by Tim Groenewald in the seventh over of the morning, leaving Yorkshire at 305-4 in the 103rd.

Kohler-Cadmore, after reaching his ton, was then dismissed by the Overton twins, caught Jamie at second slip bowled Craig (319-5 in the 106th).

Tattersall then also fell to a catch by Jamie Overton at second slip, undone by one which lifted sharply off a length from Brooks as the score slipped to 351-6 in the 114th.

Brook reached his fifty off 59 balls with the final ball of the morning. Matthew Fisher has 14.

While Yorkshire claimed three batting bonus points, Somerset claimed two bowling points.

12.51pm Yorkshire 379-6 in the 124th over. Brook has 45 and Fisher 14.

12.23pm At Lord’s, New Zealand are 98-1 after 21 overs. Kane Williamson is in on 28.

12.16pm OUT! Tattersall undone one that lifted off a length from Brooks and catches the glove on the way through to second slip. 351-6.

11.44am Kohler-Cadmore gone! He’s been caught at second slip by Jamie Overton off Craig Overton for 102. Yorkshire 319-5 now.

11.38am Superb effort from Kohler-Cadmore, who reaches his century off 204 balls with 16×4s. Yorkshire have moved to 317-4 in the 105th over.

11.31am Shaw gone! He’s been bowled by Groenewald off an inside edge for 6, losing off stump. Yorkshire 305-4.

11.02am The Overton twins are opening the bowling for Somerset. Yorkshire 283-3 in the 98th over, the second of the morning.

10.45am New Zealand have won the toss and are batting at Lord’s, with play starting 15 minutes late due to rain. They’re almost underway.

Good morning from Emerald Headingley, where it is a bright and dry start to the day ahead of day two against Somerset.

Yorkshire dominated day one, closing on 282-3 thanks in the main to Gary Ballance’s 111 and Tom Kohler-Cadmore’s 77 not out. He will aim to secure a first Championship century of the season this morning.

Somerset felt they did not make the most of the help on offer to the bowlers yesterday. They did not regret their decision to bowl first, but they did regret how they used conditions.

In fairness, the Yorkshire camp felt the Division One leaders didn’t actually bowl too badly.

If the White Rose can bat for the best part of two sessions today, they will be in an excellent position to topple a Somerset side who have pretty much swept all before them this season.

We will all have one eye on events down at Lord’s for the World Cup final, England’s first appearance since 1992. Fingers crossed for two good performances today.

Good luck to Messrs Bairstow, Rashid and Root in particular.
