Match scorecard

Jonny Bairstow hit an unbeaten century as Yorkshire took control against Leicestershire on day one of their Championship match at Scarborough.

The hosts, who are yet to record a win since being relegated to Division Two, looked to be struggling as they were reduced to 33-3.

But a fourth-wicket partnership of 160 from Andrew Gale (80) and Bairstow (141 not out) calmed Yorkshire's nerves.

Anthony McGrath hit an unbeaten 49 as the hosts ended day one on 329-5.
