YORKSHIRE'S talented 19-year-old leg-spinner, Adil Rashid, helped to bowl out Durham for 274 after they had decided to bat first on the opening day of the LV County Championship match at Headingley Carnegie.
Yorkshire were left to play out 26 overs and they lost Craig White and Jacques Rudolph to close on 50-2.
Rashid once again showed his huge potential by capturing five for 88 and has now claimed a dozen victims in three innings this season, taking his total wickets in his first seven Championship outings to 36.
With paceman Deon Kruis out of the reckoning because of a pulled hamstring, Yorkshire were also forced to omit their Australian Test bowler, Jason Gillespie, who was suffering from a stiff back, and his place was taken by all-rounder Ajmal Shahzad.
Durham got off to a solid start as Will Smith and Michael Di Venuto saw off the new-ball pair of Matthew Hoggard and Darren Gough, but with the score on 55 Di Venuto was well caught down the leg side by Gerard Brophy off Tim Bresnan.
And just 18 runs later Shahzad claimed his maiden first-class wicket by having Smith taken at second slip.
Rashid struck in only his second over when he trapped Gordon Muchall lbw and Durham were saved from complete collapse by captain Dale Benkenstein, who took the score to 207-6 before he drove Rashid high to long off where he was caught at the third attempt by Rudolph for 83.
Rashid, who had earlier trapped Phil Mustard lbw, got a wicket with his next ball as Callum Thorp was also rapped on the pads, and he ended the innings by having Ottis Gibson caught in the deep for 38.
Yorkshire were also well served by Bresnan who took two for 51 and when he claimed the wicket of Gareth Breese after twice seeing him dropped it gave him his 100th first-class wicket for the county.
Steve Harmison and Graham Onions made life difficult for Yorkshire with some sharp bowling in poor light and they each got a wicket (White and Rudolph). Joe Sayers and Younis hung on until the close when Sayers had scraped together eight off 87 balls and Younis was unbeaten on 16.
Yorkshire's director of cricket, Martyn Moxon, praised Rashid's bowling and said: "I thought he performed very well and fully deserved his wickets.
"He didn't bowl any really bad balls and his control was good and he bowled in the right areas.
"He has made a fantastic start to his career and is doing very well but we shouldn't get carried away and he must be allowed to develop at his own pace."
* Emley's Matthew Wood staked his claim for a first team recall with Yorkshire after making an unbeaten 84 for the Seconds yesterday on the second day of the match against Surrey at Reighgate Priory.
Yorkshire made 379 in the first innings (with Simon Guy making 121) which Surrey matched before declaring.
Wood then steered Yorkshire to 137 without loss in the second innings with one day of the game remaining.
