McGrath in charge for Yorkshire
County Championship D2, Chester-le-Street, day one (close): Yorkshire 340-6 v Durham

Yorkshire skipper Anthony McGrath top-scored with 86 as the visitors rallied after a shaky start against Durham at the Riverside.

England's McGrath shared a stand of 121 with Michael Lumb (43) to drag Yorkshire clear of trouble at 108-2 at lunch.

McGrath's fellow international Craig White then took over the mantle with 82 not out to steer his side into a respectable position.

White was accompanied at stumps by Andy Gray, who was defiant on 60.

Right-arm seamer Vince Wells was the pick of Durham's bowlers with 2-41 off 20 overs as England's Steve Harmison also claimed two scalps.

Durham: J J B Lewis (Capt), M A Gough, G J Muchall, G J Pratt, N Peng, V J Wells, P Mustard (Wkt), G D Bridge, Shoaib Akhtar, S J Harmison, N G Hatch.

Yorkshire: M J Wood, S P Fleming, A McGrath (Capt), M J Lumb, Yuvraj Singh, C White, S M Guy (Wkt), A K D Gray, D Gough, R J Sidebottom, S P Kirby.
