George Dobell at Warwickshire (178) v Yorkshire (381)
Yorkshire extended their lead to 200 but had to be content with four batting bonus points. Warwickshire were restricted to two bowling bonus points. Clarke took a second wicket, though, courtesy of another Trott slip catch and, moments after Willey was dropped (on 18) by Ambrose off Hannon-Dalby, the bowler had his man with a similar ball angled across the left-hander. Bearing in mind the forecast, there might have been an argument for Yorkshire declaring and getting stuck into the Warwickshire second innings. They may well have one over at them before lunch, though.

Rory Burns trudges off very slowly, looking to the sky and then keeping staring at his feet as he walks up the stairs back to the dressing room. The reason? Having played so well for 91, while Kumar Sangakkara was stroking offside drives so sweet that they deserved to be wrapped inside an Easter Egg, Burns nibbled at a delivery from Kyle Jarvis. Burns is a terrific player respected across the county circuit, as demanded by a first-class average in excess of 40, but, since the start of 2016, he has only converted two of his 11 50-plus scores to centuries. That must change if he is to push for the England place that is within the grasp of his talent.

Jonathan Trott has just done a decent impression of Rikki Clarke, diving to his right at slip to cling on to a very sharp chance. Not bad for an old fella. Clarke is the grateful bowler. It ends Rashid’s selflessly aggressive innings and must reduce Yorkshire’s chance of going full bonus points. They have four overs to score 42 runs.
