6.39pm After play was abandoned for the day, here’s some reaction from Will Fraine.

Yorkshire’s Will Fraine

“It was a rollercoaster day wasn’t it. Myself and Gary (Ballance) were happy up front. They bowled pretty well. We had a plan to get through Jeetan Patel and take advantage of any bad balls. Then mine was a soft dismissal. I don’t know how I’ve hit it there (mid-wicket). Then we had a bad 10 overs. But credit to them, they bowled well.

“Patto (Steve Patterson) and Dave (Willey) have played well to get us into a position where we’re not behind the game. We would like a few more runs, but we’ve still got some batting to go. We’ll take it how we can.

“Credit to York, they’ve produced a pretty good cricket wicket. If the bad ball’s there, it will go for four. If the bowler gets it right, it will offer a bit.

“The pitch is playing nicely, and we’re all happy with it. There’s a bit of bounce and carry, and the bowlers will be licking their lips for the next couple of days.

“We’re just disappointed with that little phase, but we’ll address that.

“I keep forgetting I’ve got a 65 not out which doesn’t class as first-class because it was a Uni game. But it’s promising for me. I’m feeling good in the nets and in the middle. It’s just about getting that big score and pushing on.”

5.40pm We’re off for rain, with Yorkshire 208-8 in the 67th over. Patterson 36 and Logan yet to score.

5.27pm Willey gone! He’s been bowled by Miles for 46. Yorkshire are now 205-8.

5pm Welcome encouragement for Yorkshire as they move to 178-7 after 59 of 82 overs to be bowled today. Patterson 17 and Willey 40.

4.30pm Ballance falls for 54, lbw to Patel. 145-7.

Tea Gary Ballance has posted yet another Specsavers County Championship fifty, but Yorkshire are on the back foot at tea on day one against Warwickshire at York.

The White Rose slipped from 93-1 to 101-6 and have reached tea on 139-6 from 47.5 overs, with tea taken approximately 15 minutes early due to rain.

Craig Miles and Oliver Hannon-Dalby had sparked a Yorkshire collapse of five wickets for just eight runs.

Seamer Miles claimed three wickets in eight balls without conceding a run.

All five afternoon wickets fell against bowling from the City End of the Clifton Park ground, with ex-Yorkshire quick Oliver Hannon-Dalby claiming the other two.

Yorkshire began the afternoon on 60-1 from 20 overs after lunch, with Ballance batting through the session unbroken to reach 52 not out.

Ballance and opener Will Fraine had shared 85 inside 24 overs for the second wicket either side of lunch, but the latter was the first of the five afternoon wickets to fall for a career best 42.

After clipping a Miles leg-side ball, he was the victim of a superb diving catch at mid-wicket from Matt Lamb (93-2 in the 30th) before the same bowler trapped Tom Kohler-Cadmore lbw for nought two balls later to close out a productive over.

Ex-Gloucestershire quick Miles, playing only his third Championship match for the Bears, then bowled York CC player Jack Leaning for nought in his next over, with Yorkshire having gone from 93-1 to 93-4.

And the wickets continued to fall.

Hannon-Dalby, who made the initial breakthrough this morning, returned to get another York player Jonny Tattersall caught at second slip for four – 101-5 in the 40th, another over which yielded two wickets as Jordan Thompson was trapped lbw for the third duck of the afternoon.

Ballance then reached 50 for the fifth time in Championship cricket this season, off 111 balls, with his previous four all converted into centuries. He has found a partner in David Willey, unbeaten on 22.

Tea was taken early just before 4pm, so no more than 13 overs have been lost in the day so far, all of which came before lunch.

3.28pm Thompson is the next Yorkshire wicket to fall, lbw to Hannon-Dalby. Yorkshire are now 101-6 in the 40th over having lost 5-8 in 61 balls.

3.24pm Tattersall gone! He’s been caught at second slip by Hain off Hannon-Dalby, 4. Yorkshire 101-5 in the 40th. All four afternoon wickets have come from the City End.

2.54pm Not the outcome the York crowd, or indeed Jack Leaning, wanted. He’s out for nought, bowled by Miles. He’s taken 3-0 in eight balls. Yorkshire slip from 93-1 to 93-4.

2.42pm Will Fraine has moved to 42, his highest score in eight first-class matches. Oh no…he’s gone, superbly caught at mid-wicket by a diving Matt Lamb off Miles. It’s 93-2 in the 30th.

The son of a Yorkshire star!

2.19pm Jeetan Patel wheeling away from the Shipton Road End. If he bowls for a good portion of the day, we may well make up some of the 13 overs lost earlier. Yorkshire 70-1 in the 24th.

Lunch Yorkshire lost Adam Lyth early on in a rain-affected first morning session against Warwickshire at York, but the hosts have advanced to reach lunch on 60-1 from 20 overs.

The start of the city’s first county fixture since 1890 was delayed until 11.30am after Jeetan Patel had opted for an uncontested toss.

Only 27 minutes of play were possible before more rain arrived just before midday, in which time Lyth edged former team-mate Oliver Hannon-Dalby behind (8-1 in the seventh).

When play resumed at 12.45pm (with 13 overs lost), Will Fraine and Gary Ballance had to contend with some accurate bowling on a pitch offering pace and bounce and have reached 28 and 23 respectively.

Hannon-Dalby, new ball partner Liam Norwell and ex-New Zealand off-spinner Patel would all consider themselves unlucky not to have broken through.

But, thankfully, Fraine and Ballance were equal to the task, benefiting from a stroke of luck here and there to add 52 unbroken for the second wicket.

David Willey has returned to Yorkshire’s team having missed a week for family reasons, while left-arm spinner James Logan is making only his second career Championship appearance.

1.03pm Very nearly a second wicket for Warwickshire, and it could have been the big one of Ballance. He squirts one off a leading edge just wide and high of a diving gully off Norwell and gets four. Yorkshire 32-1 in the 12th.

12.41pm We’re set for a restart. Hannon-Dalby to complete his wicket-taking over. Yorkshire 9-1 after 6.3.

12.24pm Unfortunately, having come off for rain one ball after the Lyth dismissal, the weather continues to thwart us.

11.54am Very tidy and testing start from the Warwickshire new ball pair of Hannon-Dalby and Norwell, and Lyth is gone, caught behind off OHD for seven. Yorkshire 8-1 in the seventh.

11.37am A couple of quiet opening overs from Hannon-Dalby and Norwell. Yorkshire 2-0. As expected, a really healthy crowd in.

11.21am We have some good news. The rain has stopped, the covers are off, and we are due to begin at 11.30am.

11.12am Play is underway elsewhere around the country…..


DAY TWO Essex 157-3 v Hampshire 118, Chelmsford
DAY ONE Kent 17-1 v Nottinghamshire, Tunbridge Wells
DAY ONE Yorkshire v Warwickshire, York


DAY TWO Middlesex 158-3 v Glamorgan, Radlett
DAY ONE Derbyshire v Lancashire, Derby
DAY ONE Leicestershire 6-1 v Gloucestershire, Grace Road

11.02am We have a delayed start due to rain unfortunately.

10.34am Warwickshire are bowling first following an uncontested toss.

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

Warwickshire: Rhodes, Sibley, Yates, Hain, Hose, Lamb, Ambrose w, Miles, Patel c, Norwell, Hannon-Dalby.

Good morning from York’s Clifton Park, where it is an overcast start to the day, but importantly a dry one.

Warwickshire are the visitors for this historic fixture, the first county game in the city of York since 1890.

The ground looks a picture, with a crowd of around 4,000 expected today.

Unbeaten Yorkshire have named an extended squad for this game, owed much to a few injury issues, including Duanne Olivier.

Warwickshire are down towards the bottom of Division One. They have a number of Yorkshire connections in their squad; Oliver Hannon-Dalby, Will Rhodes and James Wainman, who has been registered to play.

We are set for an 11am start. Enjoy the day.
