Lunch Report: Yorkshire 137-5 (59 overs) v Nottinghamshire

Lunch on the second day (Yorkshire won toss)

Just when it seemed he had done the hard work, Michael Vaughan allowed an opportunity to silence a few snipers to slip from his grasp as Yorkshire struggled here this morning and Stuart Broad shaped up for another headline-grabbing day.

The young England bowler, making his Championship debut for Nottinghamshire after his winter switch from Leicestershire, took three wickets in the space of four overs - including that of his international captain.

The 21-year-old fast bowler snared Vaughan with a ball that he would readily admit was pretty poor-- pitched short on leg stump - but will take credit for having the England skipper caught on the mid-wicket boundary.

A similar delivery had been confidently swatted away for six by Vaughan in Broad's previous over and the temptation to do so again proved his undoing as his swivelling pull went straight to fielder Samit Patel.

Having moved on painstakingly from 25 overnight to 42, Vaughan was clearly disappointed with himself as he trudged back to the dressing room. Although there is no threat yet to his place in the England line-up - an outstanding candidate for captain must emerge first - he has only this match and Monday's Friends Provident Trophy match against Durham left to hone his form with the bat.

Yorkshire's problems today, meanwhile, would only get worse. Having already lost Anthony McGrath, caught behind in an attempted hook off Charlie Shreck, they slumped from 96-2 to 115-5 as Broad followed up his loudly celebrated dismissal of Vaughan by pinning Andrew Gale leg before pushing half-forward and having Adil Rashid caught at second slip on the drive.

Broad was unlucky not to see off Gerard Brophy, too, as the Yorkshire wicketkeeper survived two edged drives on the way to lunch.
