Jordan Thompson said

“We’ve bowled well today, got our rewards and bowled them out for a respectable total.
“244 is good in our eyes. We’d have liked to have bowled them out for early 200s, but Burgess batted well.
“The old balls were going out of shape and soft, but you don’t know what the reason for that was. The ball today seemed to keep its shape a bit more and stay harder. It definitely swung for a longer period of time.
“Whether it’s the pitches being a bit flatter or the balls being bad, we’ll never know. Teams have scored a lot of runs.
“Hopefully we can go out there and score a lot of runs tomorrow.
“We got the openers early doors and then dropped numbers three and four again. It looked like being deja vu from previous weeks, but we got them to make it 40-4 and it didn’t cost us much.
“There was always going to be a partnership on that pitch. The sun was out after lunch and the pitch baked a bit.”

6.36pm – Close. Excellent day’s work for Yorkshire, who close on 28-0 from 12 overs in reply to Warwickshire 244. Hill 21 and Lyth 7 after three wickets apiece for Thompson and Patterson.

6.29pm We’re into the penultimate over of the day. Yorkshire are 28-0 in the 11th. Lyth 7 and Hill 21.

5.57pm Yorkshire are 4-0 after two overs of their reply to 244. Lyth has four of them and Hill yet to get off the mark. A reminder, a total of 12 overs to face before close.

5.40pm WICKET And that is that. Burgess offers a return catch to Patterson to fall for an entertaining 96, and Warwickshire are all out for 244 with 12 overs remaining in the day. Patterson and Thompson claim three apiece.

5.27pm Burgess is batting impressively with the tail and has moved to 80 out of 228-9 in the 79th over. Hannon-Dalby yet to get off the mark.

He has done this a couple of times already this season in passing 450 Division One runs.

5.05pm WICKET Brookes caught at backward point off Loten, who has been excellent today. Second wicket. It’s 203-9.

4.54pm Burgess reaches his fifty off 63 balls with 6×4s. Warwickshire 190-8 in the 71st over.

4.46pm WICKET Thompson strikes as Lyth takes a head high catch at second slip to get rid of Australian McAndrew for 15. Warwickshire are 188-8 in the 69th.

Tea Report Yorkshire maintained their advantage during the opening day against Warwickshire at Headingley, claiming three further wickets during the afternoon.

The Bears had reached lunch on 58-4 at the start of this LV= Insurance County Championship fixture, with Steve Patterson striking twice and Jordan Thompson and Matthew Revis once apiece.

During the afternoon, Thompson and Revis added further scalps, while Tom Loten also claimed one as the visitors moved to tea at 166-7 from 64 overs.

Yorkshire have dropped three catches today, though none of them have proved costly at all. Each batter dropped – Rob Yates, Sam Hain and Will Rhodes – have all fallen for the score they were dropped on.

Matt Lamb (45) and Rhodes (29) completed a 74-run stand for the fifth wicket after lunch before the former aimed a loose drive at Revis and was caught at first slip by Joe Root, leaving Warwickshire at 117-5 in the 47th over.

Rhodes was then dropped at second slip by Adam Lyth off Loten, only for the former Yorkshire all-rounder to miscue into the covers almost immediately and be caught one-handed over his head by Harry Brook – 137-6 in the 52nd.

And when Danny Briggs was bowled attempting to leave Thompson alone late in the session, the visitors were 156-7 after 59.

Wicketkeeper Michael Burgess has made his way to 38 not out and is playing in typical aggressive fashion, while Australian overseas seamer Nathan McAndrew is unbeaten on three.

4.02pm – Tea Three more wickets in the session for Yorkshire, who have claimed the opening day honours so far. Warwickshire 166-7 from 64 overs. Burgess 38 and McAndrew 3.

Revis, Loten and Thompson all struck in that session. Burgess a danger from here – playing his shots.

3.43pm WICKET Briggs bowled attempting to leave Thompson alone, 5. Warwickshire are 156-7 after 59. Five overs to tea.

3.15pm WICKET Rhodes caught one-handed above his head at cover by Brook (looped up), off Loten, for 20. 137-6 in the 52nd over.

2.52pm WICKET Root takes the catch at first slip following a loose drive from Lamb at Revis, 45. Warwickshire 117-5 in the 47th.

2.33pm Shoots of recovery for Warwickshire as they move to 99-4 in the 43rd over. Lamb has 39 and Rhodes 15. These two have put on 56.

1.48pm We’re up and running after lunch. Warwickshire 60-4 in the 32nd over. Thompson and Patterson in operation. Lovely sunny afternoon now.

Lunch Report Yorkshire have enjoyed an excellent opening morning against Warwickshire at Headingley, restricting the Bears to 58-4 from 29 overs at lunch.

This LV= Insurance County Championship fixture against the reigning champions has started with a flurry of wickets under an overcast sky which has since changed to sunshine.

After Steve Patterson lost his first toss of the season, the captain struck twice – sandwiched in between wickets for Jordan Thompson and Matthew Revis.

Pakistan overseas fast bowler Haris Rauf is missing this game due to illness.

Thompson took the new ball and broke through in the 11th over when Alex Davies, the former Lancashire opener, edged to England Test new boy Harry Brook at third slip for 19, leaving the score at 28-1.

Dom Sibley was then trapped lbw by Patterson in the next over for nine, without further addition to the scoreboard.

In the 18th over, Patterson then had Rob Yates caught behind by Harry Duke (41-3) before Sam Hain fell to Revis at the start of the 21st as the champions fell to 43-4.

Hain nibbled at a back of a length delivery from Revis, and initially Duke went for the catch before pulling out. It hit Joe Root – a first slip – in the chest and bounced up, only for the former England captain to complete the catch one handed going to his right.

Adam Lyth and Will Fraine both dropped morning catches, but neither proved costly.

Will Rhodes and Matt Lamb are unbeaten on seven and six respectively.

1.02pm – Lunch Very profitable morning for Yorkshire, who have taken four wickets through Patterson twice, Thompson and Revis. Warwickshire are 58-4 after 29. Rhodes 7, Lamb 6.

12.27pm WICKET Hain caught at first slip by Root at the second attempt off Revis, 8. Warwickshire are 43-4 in the 21st over.

Duke initially went for the catch but seemed to pull out at the last minute. It hit Root in the chest, bounced up and he completed the catch one-handed going to his right.

12.14pm WICKET Yates caught behind off Patterson, 3 – pushing forwards. Warwickshire are now 41-3 in the 18th.

12.06pm Another one follows shortly after, Fraine drops Yates on 3 at cover off Patterson. 39-2 in the 16th.

12.01pm Oh no, Lyth has just dropped Hain on eight off Revis, going to his left. Warwickshire 39-2 in the 15th.

11.46am WICKET Two in five balls!! Patterson gets Sibley lbw for 9. Umpire Nick Cook pauses before slowly raising his digit. Warwickshire are 28-2 in the 12th. Hain and Yates both at the crease on nought.

11.42am WICKET Davies caught at third slip by Brook, going to his left, off Thompson. Warwickshire are 28-1 in the 11th.

11.27am A fairly sedate start at Headingley. Patterson has just come into the attack in place of Revis. Warwickshire are 20-0 in the eighth over. Davies on 12 and Sibley 8. Davies edged wide of the slips in the first over and there have been a couple of stifled lbw shouts.

11.15am Warwickshire have advanced to 8-0 after four overs against Yorkshire’s new ball attack of Thompson and Revis. Davies and Sibley have four apiece.

11am We’re up and running here at Headingley, with Thompson bowling to Davies.

Match preview.


Good morning from Headingley, where it is a cloudy start to the day.

We start our sixth LV= Insurance County Championship game of the season, against Warwickshire, today. It is the last before a near month-long gap for the start of the Vitality Blast from next week.

Unbeaten Yorkshire are aiming to break a run of four draws in succession, hopefully with a second victory of the season.

Will Fraine is contention to play his first game of the season following Dawid Malan’s omission as he manages a sore Achilles.

Yorkshire are in fourth place in Division One, six points clear of defending champions Warwickshire, who have won one, lost one and drawn three this season.

There will be a stream available through the Match Centre tab at the top of this page, shortly before we get going at 11am. Enjoy the day.
