Yorkshire’s Will Fraine

“What a day. It’s nice to get that monkey off my back. It was awesome being out there. It’s a very proud day for myself and my family.

“I’ve been feeling good this year. I’ve been scoring well in the seconds and have felt good in the previous couple of games in the first team. I just haven’t kicked on after a couple of nice starts.

“Lythy is a top class player and has been a great servant for the club. He makes my life easier. He is a very calming influence. We gel quite well.

“Surrey are the champions and have a very good attack, so it’s nice to do it against them. This is my fifth county game and my third against Surrey. I keep playing against them and Morne Morkel. I’m like, ‘Go away’ because he’s so good. But it was nice to get one up on him.

“It is frustrating (to lose the wickets), but it’s cricket. We’re playing against high quality opposition, and you’re going to play a poor shot here and there or get a good ball. But I think we’re in a good spot with our attack and runs on the board. As long as we sit and be patient, I’m sure we’ll end up with a lead”.

6.40pm Close. A fascinating day sees Surrey reach 48-0 after 14 overs, Stoneman 28 and Elgar 14. They are replying to Yorkshire 327, including a superb maiden century (106) for Fraine. Clark claimed 5-77 for the visitors

6.16pm We are seven overs through the 14 Surrey have to face before close as Patterson comes into the attack. Surrey 38-0. I wouldn’t be surprised if we lose a bit of play for bad light.

5.40pm OUT! Patterson caught Clarke at first slip bowled Clark 46. Yorkshire 327 all out. Clark 5-77. 14 overs remain in the day.

5.06pm Coad gone! A brisk 25 comes to an end as he skews Morkel to point. 295-9. Five more runs for a third batting point.

Tea Will Fraine posted a superb maiden first-class century, but he was one of six afternoon wickets to fall, including a spell of four for 18, as Surrey fought their way back into the Specsavers County Championship clash at Scarborough.

Huddersfield-born Fraine, 60 not out at lunch having shared a century opening stand with Adam Lyth, moved through to three figures off 132 balls, earlier going into the nineties with a pulled six off Jordan Clark.

But it was Clark, with his seamers, who instigated a collapse which has significantly boosted Surrey’s spirits, with Yorkshire slipping from 187-1 to 205-5. The hosts later reached tea at 246-7 from 64 overs.

Gary Ballance was the first of the four afternoon wickets, caught at second slip by Scott Borthwick off a swinging Clark delivery for 23 – 187-2 after 42 overs.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore then played on to the same bowler almost four overs later.

Fraine was then caught behind for 106 off 149 balls off Morne Morkel before Clark had Jack Leaning caught at second slip by Borthwick as the score fell to 205-5 in the 50th.

Sam Curran then struck twice in two balls at the end of the 58th and start of the 60th overs as Yorkshire fell further to 231-7 – David Willey was caught at mid-wicket following a miscued pull and South African overseas spinner Keshav Maharaj bowled by a full toss for a golden duck.

But the England Test bowler left the field having bowled only three more balls, seemingly as a precaution to protect his recent hamstring injury. Earlier, Curran conceded 55 from his first 11 overs.

3.54pm Maharaj has been bowled for a golden duck by Sam Curran. 231-7.

3.49pm Willey gone! He’s miscued a pull to Stoneman at mid-wicket off Curran, 19. 231-6 in the 58th.

3.14pm More success for Surrey. Clark gets Leaning caught at second slip for nought. 205-5.

3.06pm Just a quick stat for you, heading back to the toss this morning. Steve Patterson won Yorkshire’s 10th successive toss, a post war record. Ah. Fraine has gone, caught behind off Morkel for 106. 205-4 in the 49th.

2.42pm HUNDRED! Brilliant from Fraine. His maiden first-class hundred comes off 132 balls with 18×4s and 1×6s. Yorkshire 192-2.

2.38pm Ballance gone! He’s been caught at second slip by Borthwick off Clark, 23. 187-2 after 41.

2.15pm Runs continue to come for Yorkshire. 162-1 after 37. Fraine 78 and Ballance 15.

1.47pm Three boundaries off the first seven balls of the afternoon, including one off a no ball. Yorkshire 144-1 in the 31st. Fraine 68 and Ballance 9.

Lunch Yorkshire have enjoyed an impressive opening morning of their Specsavers County Championship clash with Surrey at Scarborough, underpinned by an opening stand of 116 between Adam Lyth and Will Fraine.

Both men went beyond 50, sharing the county’s first century opening partnership since September 2017 when Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Shaun Marsh added 162 in a high-scoring draw against Surrey at the Oval.

After Steve Patterson won the toss, Lyth hit two leg-side sixes – one clipped off Rikki Clarke and the other slog-swept off Gareth Batty’s off-spin – in 55.

He was the only wicket to fall, caught just in front of point cutting at a short and wide ball from Clarke shortly before lunch in the 27th over.

Lyth reached 50 off 61 balls before Fraine, dropped at gully by Dean Elgar off Jordan Clark on 31, followed to a maiden first-class career fifty off 89 balls 10 minutes before lunch.

Surrey’s bowling has been wayward, both in line and length, and they are under the cosh even at this early stage.

12.54pm Lyth gone! Caught just in front of point by Smith off Clarke, 55. He’s furious with himself after mistiming a cut. Ball seemed to get a touch big on him. 116-1 in the 27th.

12.50pm Frainey gets to a maiden career first-class fifty off 89 balls with 10×4s. Well played. Yorkshire 114-0 after 26.

12.24pm Fraine on 31 has just been dropped by Elgar in the gully off Clark. Going quickly but straight in and out. 82-0 in the 20th.

12.15pm Surrey’s bowlers have been very much off colour this morning on a pitch which looks to be lacking the pace of usual Scarborough. The bounce is more spongy. Yorkshire 72-0 in the 18th. Lyth has 37 and Fraine 31.

11.45am England flying at 112-0 after 16. Bairstow has 61.

11.10am We’re through two overs here at Scarborough. Yorkshire 6-0 thanks to a Will Fraine boundary off Sam Curran, guided to third-man.

10.43am England batting first at Edgbaston in the World Cup clash with India. 14-0 in the third over.

10.36am Yorkshire have won the toss and will bat first.

Yorkshire: Lyth, Fraine, Ballance, Kohler-Cadmore, Leaning, Tattersall w, Willey, Maharaj, Patterson c, Coad, Olivier.

Surrey: Elgar, Stoneman, Borthwick, Patel, Foakes c and w, S Curran, Smith, Clarke, Clark, Morkel, Batty.

9.06am A preview from around the grounds courtesy of the ECB’s Reporters Network…..

Division One

Kent v Warwickshire (Canterbury)

Liam Norwell is out for the season and will undergo surgery on a torn hamstring, so Warwickshire have signed Yorkshire’s left-arm seamer James Wainman on a month’s loan and right-armer Bailey Wightman to their squad. Wightman played Minor Counties cricket for Cheshire last season.

Kent bring back veteran seamer Darren Stevens, who took a hat-trick in the 2nd XI in midweek, but Wiaan Mulder, Sam Billings and Ivan Thomas are injured.

Nottinghamshire v Essex (Trent Bridge)

Bottom of the table Notts return to Trent Bridge for the first time since May 12 because of the World Cup. Indian off-spinner Ravi Ashwin will make the first of six Championship appearances replacing Australian James Pattinson. Stuart Broad is also expected to return after he was rested for their last two matches.

Essex have added Rishi Patel and Matt Quinn to the squad that beat Somerset and trimmed the gap behind the leaders to 13 points.

Somerset v Hampshire (Taunton)

The leaders, who lost for the first time against Essex last week, face third-placed Hampshire and have included off-spinner Dom Bess, after he returned from a loan spell with Yorkshire, in their squad.

Hampshire have added Ian Holland and Oli Soames to the side beaten by Essex in their last fixture.

Yorkshire v Surrey (Scarborough)

Keshav Maharaj, the South African left-arm spinner, is set to make the first of three Championship appearances for Yorkshire while fast bowler Duanne Olivier has recovered from a hip injury. Tim Bresnan (calf) is still missing.

Surrey, who won their first game last week, will be captained by Ben Foakes because Rory Burns is unwell. They have ten players unavailable because of injury or World Cup commitments.

Division Two

Derbyshire v Middlesex (Derby)

All-rounder Fynn Hudson-Prentice makes his Championship debut for Derbyshire but Tom Lace, who is on loan from Middlesex, is not allowed to play. Tim Murtagh and Paul Stirling miss out for the visitors because of Ireland duty while James Harris is still recovering from a broken thumb.

Glamorgan v Worcestershire (Cardiff)

Leaders Glamorgan return to Sophia Gardens for the first time in 11 weeks and have added batsman Roman Walker to their squad.

Lukas Carey returns with Marchant de Lange rested while Owen Morgan is likely to open because Charlie Hemphrey has been left out with his wife due to give birth.

Pace bowler Dillon Pennington is included by Worcestershire for the first time this season but Wayne Parnell (hamstring) is absent.

Lancashire v Durham (Sedbergh School)

Leg-spinner Matt Parkinson could make his first appearance of the season for second-placed Lancashire, who are without the injured Tom Bailey. Cumbria’s Sedbergh School is the 13th different venue the county has used for Championship cricket.

Durham, looking to build on their win over Sussex, are expected to be unchanged, but have added Nathan Rimmington and Ryan Pringle to their squad.

Sussex v Northamptonshire (Hove)

Opener Varun Chopra, signed on loan from Essex, makes his Sussex debut but Mir Hamza (back) and Danny Briggs (ankle) are both out.

Good morning from Scarborough. After three or four weeks of dodging the rain, we finally look set for a few days of wall to wall sunshine (famous last words, hey!).

Surrey are the visitors to North Marine Road for this star-studded County Championship fixture, starting at 11am.

The visitors claimed their first win of the season against Warwickshire last week and seem to have found some momentum.

While Yorkshire lost their last game against Warwickshire at York the week before last, spirits are still high in the White Rose squad.

The county will hand a debut to South African spinner Keshav Maharaj as their short-term overseas signing, and his compatriot Duanne Olivier returns after injury.

Surrey also have two South Africans in their line-up, overseas batsman Dean Elgar and fast bowler Morne Morkel.

These two sides played out a rain-affected draw at Guildford at the start of the month. Hopes are high for a much more engaging clash this week.

Enjoy the day.
