Jonny Tattersall said

“It was nice to get some runs, and hopefully we can get that extra one for another point in the morning.

“I batted with Tim Bresnan at the end of the 50-over game against Northants a couple of weeks ago, and he helped see that game home. I’ve batted with him before, but it was nice to get that 100 partnership because it was crucial. It’s been a good day.

“It’s difficult to say (who is ahead). Historically, Scarborough has always been a quick scoring ground. But there’s a little bit in that wicket. I was chatting to Tim, and we thought they maybe bowled a bit wide at us.

“We think there’s enough in the pitch. Hopefully, when we get a chance to bowl tomorrow, we put the ball in the right areas and it’s an above par score.

“Morne’s got that bit of extra bounce, which did for me. But it was nice to get some runs against a good attack.”

6.30pm Close. Hugely entertaining day. Yorkshire recover from 166-6 to reach 299-8 from 96. 19 off Morkel’s last over of the day. Can’t wait for tomorrow.

6.14pm Tattersall gone! Caught at second slip for 70 off Morkel. 276-8 in the 94th.

6.01pm Bresnan gone! Bowled by Clarke for 48 after a stand of 100 with Tattersall. Superb knock. 266-7.

5.31pm Excellent evening session for Yorkshire as they move to 232-6 in the 84th over. Jonny Tattersall reaches 50 off 126 balls with 7×4s, including three in a row off Dernbach.

4.57pm Yorkshire reach 200-6 in the 75th over. Hang on, make that 204-6. Bresnan edges Patel and is dropped by Pope behind and he palms it for four.

4.26pm Early stages of the evening and Morne Morkel is bowling around the wicket and into the body of Tim Bresnan with a leg slip. Yorkshire 189-6.

Tea Report

Yorkshire have reached tea on day one of their Specsavers County Championship match against Surrey at Scarborough at 185-6 from 64 overs.

The White Rose lost four wickets in the session as Che Pujara (23), Harry Brook (nought), Gary Ballance for 54 and Jack Leaning (21) fell.

Nineteen-year-old off-spinner Amar Virdi struck twice in three balls to get Pujara caught at short-leg and Brook lbw playing back to one that skidded on in the 37th over, leaving Yorkshire at 107-4.

Ballance has so far been Yorkshire’s top-scorer, and he reached 50 with a pulled six over mid-wicket off Virdi with his 60th delivery.

Unfortunately, however, he offered no shot to Rikki Clarke in the 48th over and was bowled as the score fell to 139-5.

In the 60th over, Leaning then miscued a pull at Jade Dernbach to deep mid-wicket with another 27 added to the total. But Jonny Tattersall is unbeaten on 25 with Tim Bresnan on eleven.

3.40pm Jack Leaning pulls Jade Dernbach to deep mid-wicket, where Will Jacks takes a low catch. He’s fallen for 21. 166-6 in the 59th over.

2.56pm Big wicket for Surrey comes courtesy of Rikki Clarke. He angles one into Gary Ballance from around the wicket and bowls the left-hander, who offers no stroke. He falls for 54 and it’s 139-5.

2.51pm Gary Ballance reaches his fifty off 60 balls with eight fours and a pulled six over mid-wicket off the spin of Amar Virdi (the stroke that got him there). 133-4.

2.14pm Afternoon breakthrough for Surrey comes courtesy of Amar Virdi, who has Che Pujara caught at short-leg for 23. And two balls later, Harry Brook is lbw. 107-4.

1.55pm Surrey introduce Amar Virdi into the attack, spin for the first time today. Yorkshire are 94-2 after 32 overs. Ballance 27 and Pujara 20.

1.43pm We’re up and running after lunch as Gary Ballance drives Jade Dernbach through the covers for a couple of boundaries. 84-2 at the start of the 30th.

Lunch Report

Yorkshire have reached lunch at 76-2 from 28 overs on day one of their Specsavers County Championship match against Division One leaders Surrey at Scarborough.

A hugely competitive morning saw Yorkshire, who won the toss, lose openers Alex Lees for nought and Adam Lyth for 42 to new ball duo Jade Dernbach and Morne Morkel.

Lyth scored all of Yorkshire’s first 27 runs before a leg bye broke the sequence, while Che Pujara took 42 balls and 70 minutes to get off the mark and is still there on 19.

Lees was caught and bowled off inside-edge and pad by Dernbach in the second over before Lyth uppishly drove Morkel to gully as Yorkshire slipped to 51-2 in the 20th.

Gary Ballance will begin the afternoon alongside Pujara on 10.

12.55pm Yorkshire 75-2 in the 27th over. Che Pujara has 18 of them and Gary Ballance 10. Jade Dernbach has just had a huge appeal for leg before against Pujara, leaving the ball, turned down and couldn’t believe it.

12.26pm Lyth gone! He’s been caught by de Bruyn in the gully off Morkel for 42. Yorkshire are 51-2 in the 20th.

12.21pm Che Pujara is off the mark after 42 balls and 70 mins at the crease. He has driven Ryan Patel through the covers for four. 49-1 after 19.

12.08pm Che Pujara has been batting for an hour and is yet to get off the mark. He has faced 36 balls. Proper dig in. 40-1 after 16 overs, with Adam Lyth on 37.

11.48am Adam Lyth has all 26 of Yorkshire’s runs so far. 26-1 in the 12th.

11:33am Yorkshire have moved on to 21 for 1 after the first eight overs with Adam Lyth having scored all of them. The left-hander has played a number of crunching cover drives, but also seen the ball run down to the third man boundary with Jade Dernbach bowling a particularly challenging spell. Rikki Clarke is now on to bowl.

11:07am Wicket! Alex Lees got a big inside edge onto his pad and the ball looped back to the bowler, Jade Dernbach, for a simple catch.

11:00am We are off! Adam Lyth and Alex Lees make their way out to the middle with Morne Morkel set to open the bowling for Surrey from the Trafalgar square end.

10.34am Yorkshire have won the toss and will bat first.

Yorkshire: Lyth, Lees, Pujara, Ballance, Brook, Leaning, Tattersall w, Bresnan, Patterson c, Brooks, Coad

Surrey: Burns c, Stoneman, Borthwick, Patel, de Bruyn, Pope w, Jacks, Clarke, Morkel, Dernbach, Virdi.

Good morning from a sunny Scarbados.

We are all set for the start of Yorkshire’s seventh County Championship match of the season against leaders Surrey.

The White Rose head into this fixture with two wins, two draws and two defeats, the latest being a draw against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl, which finished on Saturday night.

Surrey beat Somerset inside three days at Guildford last week. They have South African all-rounder Theunis de Bruyn available as their overseas player for the second of a two-match stint. He will line up alongside compatriot Morne Morkel.

A reminder that this game is being live streamed on our website. We start at 11am.
