Well done to Carver he has done his job this morning.

Not to be for Lyth or Ballance today but lets hope Lees and Leaning get themselves going.

Agree, but Leaning out now. Need another 200 yet though to be comfortable.

...and now Lees out as well. Up to Bresnan and Rhodes now, to give us a winning chance. Can not see many runs coming from our last 4.

Would say this game is anyone's now.
If we can set over 200 I still fancy Yorkshire to win this one.

Track record says Yorkshire favourites... expect plenty more runs from the 'tail' if that's the word with this team

Credit to all today. Still 30 mins left and 94 overs bowled so far, should be well over a 100 by close of play.

Hopefully we will still be batting, then declare sometime tomorrow morning.

The bits I heard today and the scorecard look quite encouraging. If we don't get bowled out early we may have to risk losing in order to have a chance of winning.

Looking forward to catching the first session tomorrow before TMS pinches the airwaves for England v Afghanistan.

Chuck up for Tim Bresnan on his 450 first class wickets. Hope to catch his 500th sometime during the season.

YCCC a bowler down. Bresnan limps off. Problem is lower left leg. Couldn't see whether it was calf or shin. He's had lots of strapping around the foot & heal all tour. Strapping has been removed. He's gone into the Rooms. 12th man on.

Fisher was wearing training gear. He's been told to get his Whites on by Gillespie. He's in the dug out as 13th man.

I think Bresnan is done for today.

Bresnan now in Training Gear. In the dugout. Ice pack on left ankle. Coffee & biscuits. Still looks done for the day.

More....

13th man Matthew Fisher brings a helmet out for Hodd. And is heavily criticised by Will Rhodes. Fair Dos. Fisher is wearing a number 35, Will Rhodes shirt.

Wonderful post above that highlights why you need to be at the ground to get a proper feel for a game!

Seam bowling is one area we have plenty of depth but Bres is the best batsman of all of them too so hope its nothing serious
