Live blog: Lancashire v Yorkshire, Day Three

Live updates from Emirates Old Trafford

Welcome to the live blog for Day Three of Lancashire's LV= Insurance County Championship match at home to Yorkshire.

A recap of yesterday's highlights:


6.05pm, CLOSE Day 3, 47.0 overs 
Yorkshire 2nd inns 85-2, Fraine 6* Patterson 2* trail by 265 runs.

Just before the close a second wicket!

It was Saqib Mahmood who struck with a fast swinging delivery to trap Tom Kohler-Cadmore lbw for 32.

Yorkshire captain Steve Patterson has come in as nightwatchman and will resume tomorrow alongside Will Fraine with their side needing 265 runs to avoid an innings defeat and Lancshire needing eight more wickets.

It promises to be a thriller! 

5.30pm, 39.0 overs (8 overs left)
Yorkshire 2nd inns 72-1, Kohler-Cadmore 30* Fraine 0* trail by 278 runs.At last a wicket to tell you about!

Matt Parkinson replaced Liam Livingstone at the Brian Statham end and has Adam Lyth well caught for 39, low-down by Luke Wells, from the third ball of the over.

That was the breakthrough Lancashire needed after going wicketless for 38 overs.

5.20pm, 37.0 overs (10 overs left)
Yorkshire 2nd inns 70-0, Lyth 38* Kohler-Cadmore 29* trail by 280 runs.
Yorkshire have doubled their second innings score in the last 40 minutes with Lyth and Kohler-Cadmore well set as Dane Vilas rotates his bowling attack in search of a breakthrough.

Saqib Mahmood returns after bowling 4 overs before tea while Liam Livingstone is finding some turn from the Brian Statham end.

4.40pm, 25.0 overs (22 overs left)
Yorkshire 2nd inns 35-0, Lyth 17* Kohler-Cadmore 15* trail by 315 runs.
Runs have completely dried up in the last half hour of play. Adam Lyth and Tom Kohler-Cadmore are resisting everything the Red Rose bowlers have sent down so far.

4.10pm, 18.0 overs (29 overs left)
Yorkshire 2nd inns 29-0, Lyth 15* Kohler-Cadmore 13* trail by 321 runs.
Danny Lamb and Luke Wood into the attack after tea with Yorkshire scoring their first run for 48 deliveries.

3.40pm, TEA Day 3, 15.0 overs (32 overs left)
Yorkshire 2nd inns 28-0, Lyth 15* Kohler-Cadmore 12* trail by 322 runs.
Adam Lyth & Tom Kohler-Cadmore reach the tea interval safely. Lancashire introduced a twin spin attack just before the break with both Matt Parkinson and Liam Livingstone operating with the ball and I would think we will see a lot more of them after the break.

3.30pm, 11.0 overs (36 overs left)
Yorkshire 2nd inns 28-0, Lyth 15* Kohler-Cadmore 12* trail by 322 runs.
Adam Lyth and Tom Kohler-Cadmore have settled in well at the start of the Yorkshire second innings.

Matt Parkinson has come on and turned one delivery past Kohler-Cadmore’s forward defensive push and that maybe an indicator of where Lancashire’s best hopes rest on a pretty flat-looking wicket.
2.50pm, 2.0 overs (45 overs left)
Yorkshire 2nd inns 9-0, Lyth 5* Kohler-Cadmore 3* trail by 341 runs.
Tom Bailey starts with a maiden while Adam Lyth flashes hard at Saqib Mahmood in the second over and gets a big edge past gully for four.

2.30pm, 173.4 overs
Lancashire 509-9 dec, Bohannon 124* lead by 350 runs.
Josh Bohannon receives a great round of applause after finishing unbeaten on 127 as Dane Vilas declares with a lead of 350.

It was a bit of a frantic finish after Danny Lamb was caught in the deep off Dom Bess for 61 hitting out before Tom Bailey hit a six before being bowled and Saqib Mahmood was run out for 0.

Lancashire’s 509-9 equals the 3rd highest total they have made in first-class cricket against Yorkshire.

Now it’s over to the Lancashire bowlers to see if they can make early inroads to the Yorkshire batting.

2.05pm, 168.4 overs
Lancashire 474-6, Bohannon 108* Lamb 57*, lead by 315 runs.
Josh Bohannon has reached his second first-class century.

It has been a fabulous innings by Josh that has come from 260 balls and included 1 six & 10 fours!

Before that Danny Lamb went to his half-century and these have batted beautifully today. They reached their century partnership in the first over after lunch and this 7th wicket stand is now worth 134.

1.00pm, LUNCH Day 3, 160.0 overs
Lancashire 439-6, Bohannon 92* Lamb 40*, lead by 280 runs.
Lancashire have batted through a morning session without losing a wicket for the second day in a row!

It has been a fabulous effort by Josh Bohannon and Danny Lamb who have steadily built the Red Rose lead up towards three hundred without any alarms. Their partnership now stands at 99 runs.

Yorkshire have bowled straight and limited the scoring opportunities but once again it has been a good morning for the Red Rose.

12.45pm, 154.0 overs
Lancashire 431-6, Bohannon 90* Lamb 34*, lead by 272 runs.
15 minutes away from lunch and Josh Bohannon and Danny Lamb continue to build the Lancashire lead in impressive fashion. It now stands at 272 after Bohannon drives Dom Bess for 4.

12.22pm, 148.0 overs
Lancashire 410-6, Bohannon 76* Lamb 31*, lead by 250 runs.
Josh Bohannon and Danny Lamb have added 70 runs for the 8th wicket and been untroubled so far this morning.

11.52am, 140.2 overs
Lancashire 390-6, Bohannon 64* Lamb 23*, lead by 231 runs.
Josh Bohannon has just straight driven Duanne Oliver for four and that is the shot of the day so far. Josh completed his fourth half-century of the season shortly after the previous update and along with Danny Lamb has steadily added to Lancashire’s lead during the first 50 minutes of the day.

The pair have just reached their 50 partnership from 158 balls.

11.20am, 133.0 overs
Lancashire 366-6, Bohannon 48* Lamb 15*, lead by 207 runs.
Josh Bohannon and Danny Lamb are playing themselves in carefully this morning against some accurate Yorkshire bowling. They’ve now extended Lancashire’s lead past the 200-mark.  

Keaton Jennings struck his fourth Lancashire century and Luke Wells made his highest Red Rose score to steer the Red Rose into a very strong position after two days of this LV= Insurance County Championship match.

Their partnership of 175 dominated the second day which ended with Group 3 leaders Lancashire on 350-6 leading by 191 runs and in a great position to push for a first Roses Championship win since 2011 in the remaining two days.

We have another dry and cloudy day at Emirates Old Trafford and play will start on time at 11am with Josh Bohannon on 47 and Danny Lamb on 4.
