YORKSHIRE are 66 runs behind Warwickshire with six first-innings wickets in hand having played out a hard-fought morning in day two of their Specsavers County Championship clash at Headingley.

The White Rose, replying to 219, advanced from 62-1 overnight to reach lunch at 153-4 from 54 overs.

Adam Lyth fell with an innings top-score of 62 to his name after nightwatchman Steve Patterson and Alex Lees had also departed.

Warwickshire have edged the morning, although Yorkshire remain on top.

Patterson (one) edged the third ball of the morning from Ryan Sidebottom to slip before Alex Lees was bowled through the gate by Chris Wright for 11, courtesy of late inswing.

Lyth then played on to Boyd Rankin as he aimed a pull in the Irishman’s first over, leaving Yorkshire at 115-4 in the 40th over.

Gary Ballance will begin the afternoon on 27 with Jack Leaning on 11.
