- Good morning from a cloudy Headingley where Somerset begin this crucial LV County Championship match
Yorkshire resumed on 138 for three off 54 overs with Gary Ballance on 49* and Steve Patterson on two* in reply to Somerset’s first innings of 110. The two batsmen added a further 85 runs this morning before Ballance was caught by Trescothick on 91 to give Craig Overton his second wicket of the innings with the score on 223.
Yorkshire reached lunch without any further loss with the scoreboard showing 236 for four, a lead of 126.
Patterson departed to the third ball after the interval, pushing at Overton and giving a catch to wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi. Somerset’s attack, spearheaded by Overton, restricted the home side’s scoring opportunities to such an extent that they missed out on two batting bonus points, being 305 for seven at the 110 overs stage.
Overton continued to cause problems bowling from the Kirkstall Lane end and Australian Aaron Finch (13) edged him to Marcus Trescothick who juggled with the ball at second slip before putting it down. However, Overton gained revenge (and his 100th First Class wicket) with the very next delivery which pinned Finch lbw.
The second of two consecutive boundaries to Bairstow off Peter Trego took him beyond the 20 runs he needed to pass 1,000 for the season in the Championship whilst Overton was rested after an excellent spell of 10-4-19-3. Tim Bresnan took Yorkshire to a third batting bonus point at 300 for six in 107.2 overs but then chopped Tim Groenewald into his stumps and departed for 18.
By the tea interval, Yorkshire had reached 362 for seven enjoying an overall lead of 252 with Bairstow on 76* and James Middlebrook on 23*.
After the break Middlebrook was caught by Peter Trego from the bowling of Lewis Gregory for 23. Gregory then accounted for both Jack Brooks (11) and Bairstow who fell nine runs short of his century as Yorkshire were dismissed for 391. Overton was the pick of the bowlers with four for 64 from 28 overs whilst Gregory claimed three for 75 off 30.2.
Somerset lost openers Marcus Trescothick and Tom Abell early on in their 2nd innings but Tom Cooper (12*) and James Hildreth (18*) ensured that the visitors reached the close of day two on 44 for two as Somerset trail by 237.
The Somerset team for this game is- Marcus Trescothick (c), Tom Abell, Jim Allenby, Tom Cooper, Lewis Gregory,Tim Groenewald, James Hildreth, Jack Leach, Craig Overton, Luke Ronchi (wk) and Pete Trego.
County Champions Yorkshire had the best of the first day at Headingley.
Having won the toss and put Somerset in Brooks made the initial breakthrough in the fourth over by having Tom Abell caught at first slip by Alex Lees. It became eight for two as Marcus Trescothick played down the wrong line at Sidebottom and was bowled.
Tom Cooper was held at second slip by Adam Lyth to bring Brooks his 50th Championship wicket of the season and three balls later it was 51 as Jim Allenby had his stumps knocked over. Lyth held another slip catch to dismiss James Hildreth off Sidebottom and it became 36 for six when Tim Bresnan replaced Brooks to have Peter Trego caught by Jonny Bairstow for 19 in his first over.
Luke Ronchi and Lewis Gregory steadied the ship for Somerset and neither batsman was afraid to go for his shots. They more than doubled the score together but the return of Brooks immediately brought about the end of Gregory who was lbw for 24, leaving Somerset on 74 for seven. Steven Patterson struck in the last over before lunch as Craig Overton drove him low to short cover where Bresnan held on to a good catch as Somerset reached 85-8 at lunch.
Only 21 balls were possible at the start of the afternoon session before a heavy shower caused a 50-minute hold-up. After play resumed Ronchi was caught by Bresnan at short cover to give Brooks his career-best figures for Yorkshire of five for 35. Jack Leach was then caught by Lyth to give Steven Patterson a wicket as Somerset were dismissed for 110.
Yorkshire lost one wicket before tea when Craig Overton trapped Alex Lees lbw for ten with the last ball before the break as the home side reached 46 for one.
After tea Yorkshire continued in a similar vein through Lyth and Ballance and three fours and a single in a Trego over sprinted Lyth to his half-century at 77 for one.
The second wicket pair had added 65 in 22 overs when Lyth squirted an intended drive at Allenby to gully where Gregory took a high right-handed catch, Lyth departing for 62.
New batsman Andrew Gale would have fallen to Allenby’s last ball of the same over but Trescothick just failed to hold on to a difficult chance at second slip, but it was not a costly miss because the Yorkshire captain bottom-edged a cut into his stumps in Jack Leach’s first over. Nightwatchman Patterson stayed with Ballance until the close as Yorkshire reached 138 for three.
