Paul Edwards at Yorkshire 185-5 v Lancashire 123
A session which seemed set to be characterised by Yorkshire tightening their grip on this match was transformed rather in the penultimate over before lunch when Saqib Mahmood removed Jack Leaning and Tim Bresnan with successive deliveries. Both batsmen fell to slip catches and Ryan McLaren's snare at second off Leaning was as good as one will see all season: diving, one-handed, to the fielder's right with the ball travelling very quickly indeed. Adam Lyth is unbeaten on 85 at luncheon and the lead is 62. It is still a strong position for Yorkshire but the prospect of Lancashire conceding only a manageable lead suddenly seems rather beguiling.
