12.40: A fourth wicket for George Hill on the stroke of lunch as Ben Cox is lbw for 13.

Leicestershire go into the interval on 97-6 in reply to Yorkshire’s 155, Hill’s figures at present 4-35.

12.20: Wickets continue to fall as Ben Cliff strikes with his second delivery, having Louis Kimber caught at third slip by Fin Bean for four.

Kimber edged to second, where Adam Lyth could not hold on, the ball deflecting to his opening partner who took the catch. 80-5.

12.00: A third wicket for George Hill as he traps Umar Amin lbw on the back foot for 10. Leicestershire are now 70-4.

11.50: A second wicket for George Hill as he traps Sam Evans lbw for 15. It’s 65-3.

11.25: Leicestershire lose their second wicket with the score on 58 in the 11th over as George Hill has Lewis Hill caught behind for 42.

10.45: Ben Coad strikes with the second ball of the innings as Rishi Patel walks forward and across his stumps and is adjudged lbw.

The batsman seemed to think that the ball had hit him outside the line. 0-1.

10.33: Short and not so sweet for Yorkshire who are all out just three balls into the day without addition to the total.

Jordan Thompson was the man to fall, very well caught by wicketkeeper Ben Cox diving low to his left off Tom Scriven.

Thompson made two, Ben Cliff did not open his account, and Yorkshire are 155 all-out in 39.2 overs.

Scriven finished with 3-47 and Will Davis 4-28.

10.15: All set for a 10,30 start at Grace Road where it’s bright and sunny for day three.

The situation of the game, after Wednesday’s washout, is that Yorkshire are 155-9 in their first innings, accrued during the 38.5 overs possible on day one.

Jordan Thompson (two) and Ben Cliff (yet to score) are the not out batsmen.

Some time can be made up today, so 104 overs are possible – weather permitting.
