Willey hit 41 no from No. 10 while Yorkshire scored 247 in his second inning, rebounding from 86-6.

The England all-rounder made his 73-ball runs with three fours and three sixes, with the highs all coming in one against Gareth Berg.

Willey whipped him over the North East Stand boundary and then retired twice to the same area, the southpaw shared key associations of 65 for the ninth wicket with Jordan Thompson, who made a good 37, and 33 with last man Duanne Olivier. . .

After Harry Brook fell to the third ball of the afternoon session, caught in the second slip by Rob Keogh off Wayne Parnell for 39 to leave Yorkshire 149-8, Willey and Thompson rallied.

Thompson also hit a high when left arm spinner Simon Kerrigan was deposited over the middle of the gate toward the West Stand as Northants struggled to control running speed.

Kerrigan got revenge when Thompson was caught behind pushing forward, and Parnell rounded the innings by throwing Olivier 11 to finish 5-64 and 10-143 in the game, at which point he had tea.

Earlier, in a humid sun on another cold day, Gary Ballance was the first to fall after Yorkshire resumed at 43-3, 15 up front.

Ballance nibbled on a Parnell delivery and was caught by Ben Curran on the first slip of 16 to leave the hosts 55-4.

Yorkshire fell to 60-5 when Parnell caught night watchman Steve Patterson with a return delivery, the Yorkshire captain made four.

Jonny Tattersall led Parnell to three fours in an over when the South African ran from the end of the Emerald Stand: a clip through the middle of the wicket to get off the mark followed by two more limits on the sides of the legs.

At the other end, Harry Brook led Gareth Berg by four and the pair for the sixth wicket looked good until Tattersall fell with the total at 86, trapped behind the defense of Tom Taylor.

Dominic Bess popped up and quickly covered his first pitch from Taylor to the West Stand boundary, then firing a similar shot from the same pitcher with overwhelming force.

Brook also hit the ball terribly hard as he drove Berg through the middle wicket as Northants continued to filter the boundaries despite favorable conditions.

More examples followed when Taylor re-fueled Bess’s cover unit, this time after switching at the end of Kirkstall Lane, with players guilty of pitching too full.

Taylor induced a half chance when Bess fell behind at 23, but Ricardo Vasconcelos, the Northants captain and wicketkeeper, couldn’t get a glove under the ball that disappeared towards the edge just in case.

Brook took Sanderson out by six to move up to 50 before Bess fell in the final action of the morning session, caught lbw by 32 by former Yorkshire pace bowler Ben Sanderson, ending a position of sixth wicket worth 59.
