Yorkshire took three wickets in the morning session after Notts began the day on 42-1.

First to go was Ben Duckett, moments after bringing up an 80-ball half-century, when he dragged on an attempted cover-drive off Jordan Thompson.

Duckett added 98 for the second-wicket with Ben Slater and his departure left the hosts 107-2.

Slater - dropped on 15 in the day’s third over by wicketkeeper Harry Duke off Ben Coad, diving in front of first slip Tom Kohler-Cadmore - reached his fifty from 83 balls with nine fours.

Notts slipped to 130-3 when first innings centurion Joe Clarke skied spinner Dom Bess to Kohler-Cadmore at mid-off to depart for 10, and then to 143-3 when Coad produced a fine ball to bowl Steven Mullaney for nine past the outside edge.
