Steve Patterson

Yorkshire captain Steve Patterson

“I wouldn’t call it honours even at the moment. I still think we’re slightly behind. But we have a new ball in five overs tomorrow. If we bowl well with that, probably better than we did with the first new ball, there’s a good chance we can keep them to a similar score to ours. Batting last on this surface could be tricky.

“But we’ve got to come back in the morning and get it right. We let them get away early on, and it took us a while to claw it back to where we’re at now. We tend to do that. We get behind and claw it back. At the moment, we’re not too disappointed with where we’re at.

“This morning, with the sun out, it felt easier for batting. Then they put the heavy roller on, which I think makes a difference – just enough to take a bit of pace out of the surface and some of the sideways movement out of it.

“I enjoyed it out there (with the bat). At 101-6, it’s a bit precarious, and you need to scrape something together. But as the ball got older, it got easier. It’s just frustrating that there weren’t any more senior batters in because we could have got a really competitive score. But we did enough to keep us in the game.”

6.54pm Close. Four evening wickets, including three for Patterson, drag Yorkshire back into contention. Warwickshire 192-5 from 75 replying to 259. Excellent day’s cricket.

6.15pm Lamb gone! Caught at second slip by Lyth off Willey for 11. 166-5 now

5.54pm Hose gone! He’s been trapped lbw by Patterson, 0. 148-4

5.52pm 148-3. Patterson gets Yates for 49, caught at first slip by TKC.

5.29pm Sibley gone! He’s been bowled by Patterson for 67, sounded like a little inside edge along the way. Warwickshire 139-2.

5.18pm Tough chance. Yates on 40, gets an edge off Leaning and Tattersall can’t hold on. Straight in and out again. 133-1 in the 54th.

4.28pm Yorkshire really need to win this session. Warwickshire begin the evening and are 110-1, trailing by 149. Yates facing Coad as I type on 33. Sibley has 48.

Tea Dom Sibley and second-wicket partner Rob Yates have united to ensure a dominant second afternoon session for Warwickshire against Yorkshire at York.

Replying to 259, Warwickshire have advanced from 23-0 at lunch to 109-1 from 39 overs at tea.

Yorkshire struck once to get their former all-rounder Will Rhodes caught at third slip off Ben Coad for 28, leaving the score at 38-1 in the ninth over of the innings.

But the signs were good for the Bears, despite that wicket, as Rhodes had only just clipped Coad for six to deep backward square-leg.

Yorkshire will be frustrated that they have dropped two catches, one either side of lunch.

Will Fraine dropped Rhodes on one at mid-wicket off Coad before Adam Lyth let Yates off the hook on one at second slip off Steve Patterson. The second certainly should have been taken.

The hosts can take solace from the fact that Warwickshire’s run-rate has been kept in check. Only 13 runs were scored in the last 10 overs of the session, while Patterson has only conceded 10 runs in nine overs.

Left-arm spinner James Logan has also caused problems in his eight overs in only his second game.

But, despite that, the visitors will be delighted with their position in the game thanks largely to an unbroken partnership of 71 between Sibley and Yates, who will begin the evening on 48 and 32 respectively.

3.50pm Here’s an attempt to get Dom Sibley out for those who believe in jinxing a batsman.

In 2013, Sibley became the youngest batsman to score a Championship double century, aged 18, whilst playing for Surrey against Yorkshire at the Oval. Here, he is unbeaten on 44. Warwickshire 105-1.

3.30pm Half an hour to tea, and Warwickshire are 98-1. Logan has started nicely. But Yorkshire need a wicket. Sibley has 42 and Yates 28.

3.04pm Decent first over from James Logan, who has a huge appeal for lbw against Yates on 18. Warwickshire 72-1.

2.31pm Warwickshire 56-1 in the 16th over.

Division One

Yorkshire v Warwickshire (York, day 2)

Former Yorkshire seamer Oliver Hannon-Dalby finished with 5 for 76 as the hosts were bowled out for 259 just before lunch. Warwickshire are 41 for 1 in reply.

Kent v Nottinghamshire (Tunbridge Wells, day 2)

Notts have made a steady start in reply to Kent’s 309 and were 104 for 2 when rain arrived.

Division Two

Middlesex v Glamorgan (Radlett, day 2)

Glamorgan captain David Lloyd scored his first Championship half-century of the season as the visitors edged closer to avoiding the follow-on. Lloyd led Glamorgan’s fightback with 59 and shared a sixth-wicket partnership of 86 with Tom Cullen to steer his side to 214-6 in response to Middlesex’s total of 410.

Derbyshire v Lancashire (Derby, day 2)

Former Lancashire all-rounder Luis Reece had figures of 4 for 28 against his old county at lunch as the second division leaders reached on 94 for 4 in reply to Derbyshire’s first innings 153.

Leicestershire v Gloucestershire (Leicester, day 2)

Leicestershire continue to build a big total at Grace Road and have reached 458 for 8.

Worcestershire v Sussex (Kidderminster, day 1)

South African Wayne Parnell picked up four wickets against his former county as Sussex struggled to 111 for 6 after electing to bat first.

2.10pm England 397-6 against Afghanistan at Old Trafford. Bairstow 90, Root 88 and Morgan 148 off 71 balls. Morgan hit 17 of a record 25 sixes. Rashid Khan, 9-0-110-0. Most expensive figures in World Cup history.

2.07pm Yates dropped on one at second slip by Lyth off Patterson. Earlier, Rhodes was dropped at mid-wicket by Fraine off Coad. It’s 41-1 now.

2.03pm Rhodes gone! He’s been caught at third slip by Leaning off Coad, 28. 38-1 in the ninth.

Lunch Steve Patterson and ninth-wicket partner James Logan frustrated Warwickshire at the start of day two at York, advancing from 208-8 overnight to help the hosts reach 259 all out.

Patterson and left-arm spinner Logan completed a ninth-wicket stand of 48, batting for the first 22 overs of the day.

The captain made an excellent 60 and Logan chipped in with 20 not out, both rewarded with healthy ovations from the Clifton Park crowd as they left the crease.

For Warwickshire, seamer Oliver Hannon-Dalby claimed the final two wickets to fall, finishing with 5-76 – his fourth career haul of five wickets of more. Two of those came before he left Emerald Headingley in 2013.

The visitors have since reached lunch on 23-0 from five overs of their reply. Will Rhodes is unbeaten on 16 and Dom Sibley has seven.

12.45pm Yorkshire are all out for 259 – Coad b Hannon-Dalby (5-76). Logan 20*. Warwickshire have 20 minutes of batting to do before lunch.

12.18pm Nice to see Yorkshire lads prospering in Lancashire. England are 155-1 after 27 overs against Afghanistan at Old Trafford, with Bairstow 86 and Root 40. They have shared 112 for the second wicket. Here, Yorkshire have a second batting point at 253-8 in the 88th. Patterson 60 and Logan 16. The stand is 48.

12.09am Warwickshire have taken the new ball. Norwell with it. Yorkshire 244-8. Patterson 56 and Logan 11.

11.54am Really good stuff from the Yorkshire lower order. It’s 241-8 now, and Warwickshire will be getting a touch twitchy. Not twitchy enough to take the new ball, however. That has been delayed as Miles and Patel continue. We’re in the 82nd over.

11.40am Patterson and Logan have batted through the first 40 minutes of the day unbroken, moving the score from 208-8 overnight to 229-8. Patterson has his fourth career fifty of 77 balls with 6×4s.

10.54am Good news for Yorkshire, who have reported no significant damage to Duanne Olivier’s hip. He is expected to be fit to face Surrey at Scarborough, starting a week on Sunday.

10.51am There will be 104.2 overs bowled today.

10.37am Around the grounds…..

DAY TWO Derbyshire 153 v Lancashire 8-1, Derby

Thankfully this will act as a sunshield today

Good morning from a sunny York CC. We look set fair for a start on time at 11am for day two.

Only 66.4 overs were bowled yesterday, but the game advanced swiftly, with Yorkshire closing on 208-8, including a top-score of 54 for Gary Ballance.

If Steve Patterson can build on his swashbuckling 36 not out this morning for half an hour to 45 minutes, Yorkshire will not be in a bad position.

Warwickshire, in fairness, bowled well yesterday, led by Craig Miles and Oliver Hannon-Dalby. They bowled a touch short before lunch and chased things a touch when Patterson and David Willey were together for their 60-run eighth-wicket stand. But, aside from that, they were impressive in bowler-friendly conditions.

We are expecting another bumper crowd at Clifton Park. Enjoy the day.
