Scorecard

Yorkshire enjoyed a strong start to their Bob Willis Trophy campaign as Andrew Gale’s side dismissed Durham for 103 before ending day one 84-4 at Emirates Riverside.

The home side won the toss and opted to bat first, but were put on the back foot by excellent bowling from the Yorkshire attack.

Ben Coad set the tone from the off and was on point throughout the Durham innings as he claimed figures of 4-23, while Jordan Thompson was equally impressive with three wickets of his own.

Gareth Harte was the only Durham batsman to offer a semblance of resistance with an unbeaten innings of 33.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore launched an onslaught against Chris Rushworth in the early stages of Yorkshire’s innings before he was dismissed nine short of a half-century.
