Craig White launched his bid for the England all-rounder's slot with 107, the third first-class century of his career, to steer Yorkshire out of trouble and to a total of 332 at Grace Road. Leicestershire, who had the visitors reeling at 133 for 5 at one stage, went on to lose Nigel Briers and nightwatchman Adrian Pierson for ducks to close at 1 for 2.

Devon Malcolm and Dominic Cork did the same with four wickets apiece as Nottinghamshire stumbled to 244 at Trent Bridge. Derbyshire were 43 for 0 at close.

Allan Lamb scored 124 - his 87th first-class century - as Northamptonshire reached 359 for 9 against Glamorgan at Cardiff. He was eventually stumped by Colin Metson off Neil Kendrick.
