Match scorecard

Hampshire's Michael Carberry fell three runs short of a century as Yorkshire took control on day two at Headingley.

The hosts moved from 333-7 to 370 all out as Jack Leaning (82) fell lbw early on to James Tomlinson (4-86).

Hampshire lost opener Sean Terry without scoring before Liam Dawson (40) and Carberry (97) put on 75.

But late wickets for Jack Brooks (3-55) and Adil Rashid (3-68) left Yorkshire firmly on top as Hampshire closed on 223-8 - still 147 runs behind.

The day had begun brightly for the visitors as Tomlinson and a maiden Hampshire wicket for Fidel Edwards saw Yorkshire add just 37 runs to their overnight score.

Terry, filling in for captain Jimmy Adams who is attending the birth of his child, fell early and Hampshire were fortunate not to lose another as Dawson was twice put down in the slip cordon.

Carberry continues Yorkshire run
Before this match Michael Carberry averaged 74 against Yorkshire, including a triple century at the Ageas Bowl in 2011.

Brooks then passed 250 first-class wickets with dismissals in successive deliveries, first pinning James Vince lbw offering no shot, before having Will Smith caught at second slip.

Carberry held the key for the visitors and passed 12,000 first-class runs before he was caught on the mid-wicket fence attempting to go to three figures with a boundary off Rashid.

Sean Ervine was then dismissed in the following over, caught at fine leg off Brooks, before Gareth Berg and Andre Adams fell to Rashid in the closing overs to swing the match in the hosts' favour.
