Yorkshire were close to a first-innings lead over Sussex at lunch on day three at Scarborough thanks in the main to Kane Williamson’s maiden century for the county.

Williamson profited from being adjudged not out on 16 yesterday, when James Tredwell claimed a catch at second slip off Lewis Hatchett, and underpinned a lunchtime score of 362-6 from 92 overs in reply to 368.

Yorkshire only lost one wicket this morning, that of Adil Rashid bowled by Matt Hobden for an aggressive 28.

Williamson, who shared 149 for the fourth wicket with Jonny Bairstow (77) and 51 for the fifth with Jack Leaning, added an unbroken 70 inside 22 overs with Tim Bresnan.

The Kiwi resumes this afternoon on 129, with Bresnan on 32.
