It is the final day of the County Championship season and if Yorkshire beat Essex, and pick up 3 bonus points, they will be promoted back to the first division at the first attempt. Yorkshire captain Andrew Gale won the toss and was first to bat.
Joe Root was the first Yorkshire batsman to lose his wicket - LBW for 0 in the 2nd over. Adam Lyth reached his half century in super fast time - just 42 balls. His innings now over, he racked up a quick fire 67 before being caught behind off the bowling of Graham Napier.
