Lancashire in a spin
Spinners Adil Rashid and Azeem Rafiq shared six wickets to put Yorkshire firmly in charge after two days of the LV= County Championship Roses clash against Lancashire at Old Trafford.
The hosts converted their overnight total of 379 for eight into an imposing 447 as Richard Pyrah made 32, Steven Patterson 27 and Oliver Hannon-Dalby 11 not out.
Paul Horton and Stephen Moore, who made 63 and 40 respectively, gave the hosts a good start with an opening partnership of 94 but, from 131 for one, the Red Rose wilted to 187 for six by the close.
Elsewhere in Division One, a promising opening stand in their second innings saw Durham take the initiative in a low-scoring clash with Warwickshire at the Emirates Durham ICG.
Having dismissed the hosts for 288 on the first day, Warwickshire could manage only 224 in reply. Rikki Clarke top-scored with 68 and Jim Troughton made 44 as Callum Thorp took 4-54 and Chris Rushworth 3-46.
Mark Stoneman closed on 42 not out and Michael Di Venuto 31 not out as Durham reached 78 without loss, 142 ahead.
In Division Two, Worcestershire recovered from a dire start to their second innings to fight back against Leicestershire at New Road.
The visitors pushed on from their overnight 163 for three to post 309, with wicketkeeper Tom New making 58, and quickly reduced Worcestershire to 59 for four as Nathan Buck took the first three wickets.
But captain Daryl Mitchell, who made 63 not out, and James Cameron, with an unbeaten 62, put on an unbroken 109 to see their side to 168 for four at the close, 34 runs ahead.
Gloucestershire, having resumed on 81 for two this morning, reached 404 for eight to take the upper hand against Middlesex at Bristol.
Former New Zealand all-rounder James Franklin fell one short of a century and Hamish Marshall (68) and captain Alex Gidman (61) also impressed, while Neil Dexter finished with 3-64.
Surrey are well on top against Derbyshire at Chesterfield, closing 204 runs ahead on 50 for one in their second innings.
Last pair Chris Tremlett (29 not out) and Tim Linley (15) saw the visitors to 391 in their first innings and took six wickets between them as Derbyshire were bowled out for just 237.
Only opener Wayne Madsen, who hit a fine 109, and wicketkeeper Lee Goddard, with 67, offered sime resistance as Linley took 4-13 from 10.2 overs before pulling up with a foot injury. Gareth Batty claimed 3-50 and Tremlett 2-64.
