Yorkshire’s bowlers held the upper hand on the second day of the LV=County Championship match against Hampshire at Headingley. But for a fighting knock of 97 from Michael Carberry the visitors would have been in much deeper trouble at stumps when they were 223-8,still trailing by 147 on the first innings.

Hampshire were up against it from the start as Sean Terry was forced back on to his stumps and lbw to Tim Bresnan without scoring. Liam Dawson survived three lives and his stand with Carberry had reached 75 in 28 overs when it was ended by Will Rhodes, Leaning holding on to Dawson at third slip.

Jack Brooks struck with consecutive balls to leave Hampshire on 109 for four. James Vince was lbw and Will Smith was caught by Lyth, his departure bringing Brooks his 250th first class wicket.

Much depended upon Carberry and Sean Ervine and they batted attractively to put on 86 in 27 overs before both got themselves out.

Carberry had move on serenely to 97 when he swept Adil Rashid straight into the hands of Cheteshwar Pujara at deep mid-wicket.

Ervine also perished in the next over from Brooks, pulling high to fine leg where Steven Patterson waited patiently for the ball to land in his hands. There were two further wickets for Rashid in the closing overs, Gareth Berg and Andre Adams falling.

Resuming the day on 333 for seven, Yorkshire were able to secure a fourth batting bonus point before being bowled out for 370.
