Yorkshire seal innings victory over Hampshire to claim first win of the season

Yorkshire wrapped up an emphatic innings and 44-run victory over Hampshire in the County Championship at the Ageas Bowl.


Seamer Ben Coad trapped Rilee Rossouw lbw, and then had Gareth Berg caught at first slip and struck Ian Holland on his pads off consecutive balls as the hosts lost 3-5 to slip to 59-8.

However, Liam Dawson battled hard, scoring his second half-century of the match and sharing a vital 131-run ninth-wicket partnership with Keith Barker (64) – before the latter was eventually caught behind off Steven Patterson.
