George Dobell at Warwickshire (178) v Yorkshire (285-6)
A bold umpiring decision has seen the end of Tim Bresnan. There was a lot of bat in his forward defensive shot off Keith Barker but Nigel Cowley – rightly, I think – concluded that the ball brushed the pad on its way to the bat. Bresnan had been batting with great fluency and was taking this game away from Yorkshire at pace. His loss may revive Warwickshire’s hopes that they can fight their way back into it. Still, the lead is more than a 100 and there’s more to come.

Sam Hain has just taken an outstanding catch to end Jack Leaning’s innings. Throwing himself full length to his right at short-leg, Hain clung on to the ball which may well have come off the glove as Leaning lunged forward to Jeetan Patel. It was, not for the first time today, a wicket that came against the run of play that continues to be dominated by Yorkshire. They lead by more than 50 with power to add. The new ball is just round the corner, though.

Just when the evening was taking on a rather somnolent air, with Mark Stoneman driving punchily down the ground under the evening sunshine, Jordan Clark has trapped Stoneman with his fourth ball, though the opener didn’t look best pleased with the decision. Fresh from his 140, Clark then greeted Scott Borthwick, another Durham signing, with a couple of excellent deliveries. In the very next over, Rory Burns was strangled by Luke Procter down the legside; Alex Davies’ despairing reaction to shelling the ball suggests that was a dropped chance.
