  1. Signing off

    Steven Patterson

    A tough call, perhaps, but player of the day for us is Yorkshire captain Steven Patterson, who follows an innings of 60 with three final-session wickets against Warwickshire at Clifton Park.

    Bears seamer Oliver Hannon-Dalby and Middlesex paceman Steven Finn both claimed five-fors, but Derbyshire all-rounder Luis Reece had the best figures of the day of 6-58.

    Reece's side, though, are in deep trouble aagainst Lancashire, for whom Graham Onions took the 700th first-class wicket of his career.

    Not a day for major innings then. But how will the batsmen fare tomorrow? Join us from 10:30 BST to find out.

  3. Bears avoid late damage

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 192-5 - close

    Tim Ambrose takes a single from Jordan Thompson's final delivery to end a day of fluctuating fortunes at Clifton Park.

    After Yorkshire added 51 to their overnight 208-8 before being bowled out, Warwickshire were going along well on 139-1 with Dom Sibley and Rob Yates well set.

    But Sibley's dismissal for 67 triggered a mini-collapse with four wickets going down for 27 runs.

    Warwickshire will start day three still 67 behind.

  4. Hain holds firm

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 190-5

    Jordan Thompson is glanced for four by Sam Hain as he relieves Ben Coad.

    David Willey comes in for his final over of the day from the other end and a single by Hain carries him to 23 not out.

    But Tim Ambrose pinches the strike for the last before stumps with one from Willey's last delivery. It takes him into double figures.

  5. Ambrose finds the boundary

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 184-5

    David Willey strays onto Tim Ambrose's pads and is put away for four. Five dot balls make up the rest of the over and there are three to go. Jordan Thompson is called up for the next.

  6. Yorkshire strive for late breakthrough

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 180-5

    Yorkshire will have a new ball early in the morning session on day three, but they would love one more wicket with the old one before the close.

    No joy for them in the latest Ben Coad over, but it's a maiden to Sam Hain, who remains 18 not out. There are four left to bowl.

  7. Ambrose up and running

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 172-5

    Tim Ambrose gets off the mark with a well-timed punch off the back foot for four off David Willey. Sam Hain has 11 at the other end and there are seven overs of play remaining.

  8. Timely late wicket boosts Kent

    Kent 309 v Notts 208-4

    Harry Podmore

    That Harry Podmore wicket was very timely indeed as when his over came to and end, so did the match.

    A dastardly combination of bad light and heavy rain has called time on the day's proceedings at Tunbridge Wells.

    Chris Nash was the pick of the batting line-up, scoring a watchful 67 from 168 balls, before falling in the final over of the day. He was ably assisted throughout the afternoon by Samit Patel who remains unbeaten on 42.

    The game is finely poised and Notts will resume tomorrow morning 101 runs behind Kent, with six wickets remaining.

  9. WICKET Lamb c Lyth b Willey 11

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 166-5

    David Willey

    A streaky four for Matt Lamb, who throws the bat at the first ball of a new spell by David Willey and edges over the slips.

    The left-armer takes his revenge with his final delivery as Lamb pushes forward as Adam Lyth takes the catch at second slip.

    Warwickshire's decline continues. From 139-1, they have lost four wickets for 27 runs in 10 overs.

  10. WICKET Nash c Robinson b Podmore 67

    Kent 309 v Notts 207-4


    Harry Podmore has made the much-needed breakthrough for Kent, bringing Chris Nash's innings to an end.

    Nash edged the delivery behind to wicket-keeper Ollie Robinson who has his third catch of the day.

    Samit Patel, still unbeaten on 42, is now joined by Steven Mullaney.

  11. Lancashire scent victory at Derby

    Derbyshire 153 & 19-4 v Lancashire 236 - close

    Bad light is followed by rain at Derby and the umpires decide that will do for the second day's play.

    The intervention of the weather comes as a relief to the home side, who were being tormented by Jimmy Anderson and Graham Onions and still trail by 64 with only six wickets remaining.

    Onions has 3-9 from six overs, including his 700th first-class victim, and Anderson has 1-9.

    If the weather is kind on day three, it will take some special batting by someone to prevent the Division Two leaders from wrapping up another victory.

  12. Slow but steady progress

    Kent 309 v Notts 202-3

    A single from Samit Patel brings up the 200 for Notts and with it, a first batting point.

    The scoring rate has been very slow this afternoon, with Patel (40) and Chris Nash (67) mainly scoring ones and twos and frustrating the Kent bowlers in the process.

    Notts now trail by only 104 runs and we have 11 overs left to play today.

  13. WICKET Hose lbw Patterson 0

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 148-4

    Steven Patterson

    Steven Patterson is having quite some game. Having top-scored with 60 in Yorkshire's first innings, he now has 3-15 and two wickets in three balls in this over. There wasn't a lot wrong with Adam Hose's defensive stroke, but perhaps he played slightly across the line.

    Matt Lamb is the new batsman - and it's his first Championship innings of the season.

  14. WICKET Yates c Kohler-Cadmore b Patterson 49

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 148-3

    Agony for 19-year-old Rob Yates, who falls one run short of what would have been a maiden first-class half-century. It's a good ball by Yorkshire skipper Steven Petterson, though, and Tom Kohler-Cadmore does well to pick up the slip catch just millimetres above the turf.

    Yates faced 160 balls and hit four boundaries in his innings and despite have one or two fortunate moments, it should do him a power of good as his career progresses.

    Adam Hose is the new batsman and there are 13 and a bit overs to go before the close.

  15. WICKET Du Plooy lbw Onions 1

    Derbyshire 153 & 19-4 v Lancashire 236

    With just one run scored off the bat from the previous 31 deliveries, Leus du Plooy tries to on-drive a ball from Graham Onions but is beaten by a touch of late inswing and that, for him, is all she wrote.

    Derbyshire are still 64 behind as Harvey Hosein comes to the crease, but after Alex Hughes faces one ball of the next over by Jimmy Anderson, they go off for bad light.

  16. Weather ends play in Leicester

    Leicestershire 487 v Gloucestershire 41-3 - close

    Grace Road, Leicester

    We have our third early finish because of bad weather - this one at Grace Road.

    Gloucestershire are in deep trouble after a spell of 3-10 by Mohammad Abbas, and will start day three 446 in arrears, with Benny Howell 16 not out and Chris Dent on 15.

    Leicestershire earlier added 144 to their overnight 343-5, with Colin Ackermann making an unbeaten 56.

  17. Rain forces early finish at Kidderminster

    Sussex 185-6 v Worcs - stumps

    Ben Brown

    There will be no further play today as the umpires glance skywards and see little prospect of the heavy rain abating any time soon.

    Frustration for both sides but more so for Sussex one would suspect, who were recovering well after a dreadful morning, through the 83-run partnership between Ben Brown and Chris Jordan.

    It was certainly Worcestershire who had the early momentum, with Wayne Parnell the pick of the bowlers, picking up four wickets in a wonderful spell, to leave Sussex wobbling on 102-6.

    But the in-form captain Brown provided the sort of calm and composed innings required and reached 64 not out by the close of play. Chris Jordan will be eyeing his half-century when play resumes tomorrow morning, needing only six runs to get to 50.

  18. WICKET Sibley b Patterson 67

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 139-2

    Yorkshire finally have the breakthrough as Dom Sibley prods without cionviction at a ball from Steven Patterson and inside edges onto his stumps.

    A disappointing end to a good partnership with Rob Yates, who remains on 43 not out as Sam Hain comes out to join him.

    Sibley batted for just over three and a quarter hours, faced 166 balls and hit eight fours.

  19. Bears duo post 100 stand

    Yorkshire 259 v Warwickshire 139-1

    Rob Yates

    Warwickshire are content to accumulate runs at a rate of around two and a half an over, but a single by Rob Yates brings up a 100 partnership with Dom Sibley.

    Yorkshire have been guilty of some fielding lapses, the latest seeing keeper Jonny Tattersall fail to hang onto an edge by Yates, then 40, off Jack leaning's off-spin.

    The teenager is now 43 not out and Sibley has 67.

  20. Nash and Patel's partnership

    Kent 309 v Notts 178-3

    One place where play is still going on is Tunbridge Wells, where Chris Nash and Samit Patel are quietly going about their business.

    They have passed the 50-run partnership, with Wiaan Mulder and Grant Stewart among the Kent bowlers who have toiled all afternoon with no reward.

    Nash is now on 61 not out, while Patel has 19 from 75 balls.
