Ajmal Shahzad's explosive innings helped Yorkshire take full control of their match with Worcestershire.

Yorkshire's innings was in the balance after resuming on 135-5 but, after Gary Ballance (51) steadied the ship, Shahzad took centre stage.

He smashed four sixes in his 70 off 72 balls and put on 109 for the last wicket with Ryan Sidebottom (28 not out) in Yorkshire's 367 all out.

The visitors stumbled to 82-4 in their second innings, still 117 runs behind.
