Adil Rashid
Adil Rashid took eight wickets in last week's Roses Match at Old Trafford

Adil Rashid took four wickets to bowl Yorkshire into a commanding position on day two of their game with Warwickshire at Headingley.

Resuming on 325-4, Gerard Brophy went on to complete his first century of the summer, helped by Rich Pyrah (45no), as Yorkshire were bowled out for 425.

Bears captain Ian Westwood then offered some resistance with 66.

But he was one of Rashid's victims as the visitors reached 221-7 by stumps, needing 55 more to avoid the follow-on.

Warwickshire's progress in their reply seemed serene enough as Westwood and Darren Maddy put on 102 for the first wicket - the Bears' best opening stand for over two years.

But once Maddy was trapped leg before by Oliver Hannon-Dalby, their all-too familiar batting problems started again.


Rashid removed Westwood, also lbw, before three wickets went down for 10 balls after tea to leave Warwickshire teetering on 153-5.

Two of them fell to Rashid, with Jim Troughton and Ant Botha both caught by Adam Lyth at short leg either side of Steve Patterson pinning Ateeq Javid leg before.

Tim Ambrose and Rikki Clarke offered some respite before Tino Best removed Ambrose's middle stump in the first over after a short rain break.

And Rashid strengthened Yorkshire's position by winning another lbw call, this time against Steffan Piolet.

It capped another good day for the Tykes, which began with Brophy completing only his second first-class century for the county before cutting Clarke into Botha's hands at point, while Neil Carter removed Rashid lbw with his second ball to finish with a well-deserved 4-87.

BBC Coventry & Warwickshire's Clive Eakin reflects on another disappointing day for the Bears:
"Once a team gets into a batting slump it can be very hard to get out of it. They know, and their opponents know, that however well they might be going at any given time, one wicket is likely to be followed by more.

"That's exactly what happened here. Darren Maddy and Ian Westwood looked to be regaining confidence in the Bears' first century opening stand for over two years. But once they fell the domino effect kicked in.

"Given the batting woes, it's puzzling that Keith Barker, who scored 170 in the second XI match at York and top scored in the FP t20 match here, isn't in the team for this game.

"Warwickshire should take credit for sticking to their task in the field, claiming six Yorkshire wickets for 100 runs in the first half of the day.
