ENGLAND batsman Jonny Bairstow was dismissed for a first-ball duck as Yorkshire reached 83-3 on day two of their second division County Championship encounter with Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl.
With the first day’s play abandoned due to rain, Hampshire made immediate progress after putting their opponents in to bat when Adam Lyth fell leg before wicket to James Tomlinson before Kabir Ali had both Phil Jaques and Bairstow caught behind to leave Yorkshire 28-3.
Opening batsman Joe Root dug in, however, and he went to lunch on 46 not out before rain returned to wipe out this afternoon’s two sessions.
Two Sellers Huddersfield Junior League finals will be played on Sunday.
The Romida Hills Supplies Under 15 Cup showpiece is at Thongsbridge, starting at 2pm, while the re-arranged Romida Examiner Salver for Under 13s is at 2.30pm at Rastrick.
Thongsbridge will have to wait until tonight to find out who they play on Sunday, as Lascelles Hall and Upperthong are due to play their long-delayed semi-final. If bad weather intervenes, the tie will be decided by a bowl-out.
In the Under 13 showpiece, Meltham play Golcar in a final which was unable to start due to rain last weekend.
