MATCH CENTRE 

Yorkshire will require 312 to win today’s Metro Bank One-Day Cup clash with qualification rivals Hampshire at York’s Clifton Park.

Hampshire fell to 108-4 early in the 26th over, including two wickets in as many overs for Ben Mike, after they had been inserted on the same pitch used for the Vikings’ victory over Surrey here.

Unfortunately, however, the complexion changed thanks largely to former England Under 19s captain Tom Prest and fifth-wicket partner Joseph Eckland, with them helping the visitors to a total of 311-6.

They shared 125 and, in particular, were both punishing on anything short.

Prest top-scored with 105 off 118 balls and Eckland added 72 off 55. 

Eckland, 19, posted his maiden fifty in first-team cricket. This is only his fourth match – all in this season’s MB50.

Prest reached his century off 114 balls with 10 fours and two sixes late in an innings which started with Ben Coad bowling 10 overs straight through for an excellent 0-21.

Mike finished with 3-84 from 10 overs.
