Yorkshire captain Steve Patterson said
“I didn’t realise I’d taken 450 to be honest.?“It’s just nice after no wickets at Scarborough and Hampshire, personally, to contribute again.
“I thought we did a decent job with the ball. We certainly didn’t bowl as well as we did in the last couple of weeks discipline wise. But we bowled enough wicket-taking deliveries.
“We were happy with that score, but we haven’t played well enough with the bat. We are a bit behind where we want to be.
“Obviously, we’d like as many runs as we can get. But we are 60 behind. If we can get within 25 or 30, it makes it almost a one-innings game.
“We have Gary there, who is one of the best players in the country. If we can keep him there for an hour tomorrow, it gives us a chance to creep up to them.”
5.33pm We’re off for the light, with Yorkshire 95-8 with 12.2 overs remaining. 60 behind.
The Diamonds, meanwhile, have won at Durham to qualify for the RHF Trophy knockouts.

5.14pm WICKET Thompson falls to Miles, caught at wide mid-on on the pull, for 5. Yorkshire are 91-7 in the 35th over. The deficit is 64. Fisher joins Ballance, who has 48. A little more than 16 overs remaining in the day.
4.52pm WICKET Another one. Norwell gets Duke lbw. 76-6. Yorkshire are in a bit of bother here, 79 behind.
