2.31pm Yorkshire have an afternoon wicket courtesy of Ben Coad, who has Rory Burns caught behind for 59. Surrey 107-3 in the 31st over. Ryan Patel and Theunis de Bruyn at the crease.

Lunch Report

Yorkshire, defending a first-innings total of 342, have taken two morning wickets as Surrey reach lunch on day two on 89-2 at Scarborough.

Ben Coad had Mark Stoneman caught behind for nine before Tim Bresnan had Scott Borthwick the same way for 20, albeit off a top-edged pull.

Surrey skipper Rory Burns reached 50 off 46 balls with eleven fours and will begin the afternoon unbeaten on 54.

An action-packed morning saw Yorkshire advance their first-innings from 299-8 overnight to 337 all out.

Jack Brooks hit 27 and Steve Patterson 21, sharing 61 for the ninth wicket in all before falling in the space of three balls to Jade Dernbach to wrap up the innings.

But Yorkshire have been awarded five penalty runs to boost their total following two Level One offences committed by Surrey.

One was in the field this morning and the other Stoneman’s reaction to being given out, a decision he made it clear that he disagreed with.

12.48pm Rory Burns reaches 50 off 46 balls with 11×4s. Entertaining knock from a man who must be catching the eye of the England selectors. Surrey are 80-2 in the 15th.

12.39pm Borthwick gone! He’s been caught behind by Tattersall following a top-edged pull at Bresnan, 20. Surrey are 71-2 in the 13th over.

12.20pm Yorkshire have been awarded five penalty runs for two Surrey offences, including Stoneman’s actions upon dismissal. So 342 all out, not 337.

12.12pm Surrey are 48-1 in the seventh over of their reply to Yorkshire’s 337, and they have hit eleven boundaries so far.

11.56am Breakthrough. Ben Coad gets Mark Stoneman caught behind for nine. The England left-hander didn’t think he hit it and had a swish of the bat and threw his gloves and bat, all quite tame, as he got back to the dressing room. Three boundaries since that wicket, however, and Surrey are 21-1 in the fourth.

11:30am Wicket! Jack Brooks has been caught at cover for an enterprising 27. That is followed two balls later by the final wicket, as Steve Patterson has his leg-stump removed. The White Rose captain scored a valuable 21. Surrey’s opening batters will be heading out to the middle shortly.

11:04am The day is underway with Jack Brooks facing up to Jade Dernbach. A few play and misses but, off the fourth ball of the over, the ball runs away to the fine-leg boundary off Brooks’ pads to take the White Rose past 300, and secure a third batting bonus point.

10.45am The mist/sea fret has all but disappeared and we should start on time at 11am.

Good morning from Scarborough, where it is a misty start to day two. As thing stand, I don’t think we’d start in such conditions due to the light, but I’d be amazed if it hasn’t burnt away come 11am.

We are set for another cracker of a day. If it’s half as good as yesterday, it will be worth watching.

Yorkshire will resume on 299-8 having recovered from 139-5 and 166-6.

Jonny Tattersall and Gary Ballance scored half-centuries, while Morne Morkel was the pick of the Surrey bowlers with two wickets.

He is likely to start proceedings this morning, bowling to Jack Brooks and Steve Patterson as Yorkshire search for a third batting point.
