Pacemen Steve Harmison and Shoaib Akhtar shared five wickets for Durham to keep Yorkshire in check at the rain-hit Riverside.

In the 28 overs possible between a late start and an early close, county cricket's fastest pairing reduced the visitors to 103-6 in their second innings - a lead of 224.

Harmison started and finished proceedings with the wickets of opener Matthew Wood and wicket-keeper Simon Guy.

And Shoaib had Anthony McGrath, Michael Lumb and Yuvraj Singh all caught behind for single-figure scores to claim 3-23.

Only Stephen Fleming avoided the duo, making 38 before he was caught behind off veteran Vince Wells.

And first innings centurion Craig White reached the close at 30 not out.

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.
