Yesterday, Wes Durston recorded First-Class career-best figures of 5-34 as Yorkshire lost their final five wickets for nine runs on Day Two at Headingley.

However a century from former England all-rounder Anthony McGrath ensured the hosts ended their innings with a full quota of batting points. 

Yorkshire resumed the day on 127-2 and quickly solidified a position of dominance; Adam Lyth and Gary Ballance progressing the total past 200 in the morning session.

Lyth, who had started the day unbeaten on 60, was the first to depart, cutting straight to Matt Lineker at point off Ross Whiteley for 93, yet Ballance remained strong as Yorkshire moved to 244-3 at Lunch.

Just 12 more runs were added in the afternoon session by Ballance and McGrath; before the former was caught at the wicket off Tim Groeneald for 79.

England leg-spinning all-rounder Adil Rashid did not hang around too long, bowled Durston for 12 to leave the hosts 280-5.

However McGrath, ably supported by debutant wicketkeeper Andy Hodd, then cut loose; taking the Yorkshire score to 341-5 at Tea with McGrath 78* and Hodd 15*.

Post Tea, Yorkshire remained in no rush to relinquish the initiative and a plethora of milestones greeted the hosts an hour into the session.

With Hodd reaching 50 moments earlier, a straight drive from McGrath bought up his century as Yorkshire passed 400 in the process; consequently securing full batting points.

With no more bowling points available with 110 overs completed, McGrath’s excellent innings came to an end shortly after; caught Wainwright, bowled Durston for 104.

His partner, Hodd, then followed suit almost instantaneously, caught Lineker at point, again off Durston for an impressive debut 58; Yorkshire 412-7.

Tim Bresnan (1) – available having been released by England and replacing Moin Ashraf in the Yorkshire side – and Azeem Rafiq (1) then swiftly departed to Wainwright and Durston respectively, meaning that Yorkshire had lost four wickets for four runs.

Sidebottom (4) then followed suit to give Durston career-best figures of 5-34. Yorkshire all out for 420; leaving Derbyshire 11 overs to bat in the evening session.

Derbyshire looked to to have survived the tricky spell, only for Wayne Madsen to fall LBW to Bresnan to the last ball of the day for 14; Derbyshire 28-1 at the close, trailing by 392.
