Graham Onions kept his name in the England frame with a five-wicket haul for Durham on day two of their LV= County Championship clash against Yorkshire at Chester-le-Street.

Rain delayed the start until 4.10pm, then, on a pleasant evening, Yorkshire progressed serenely from their overnight 57-3 to 96.

Joe Root, resuming on 30, continued to look perfectly assured in reaching 49 before a ball which kept a shade low from Onions took out his middle stump.

In Onions' next over, Jonny Bairstow, on 16, skied an attempted pull to be caught by Mark Stoneman, positioned for the shot at deep square leg.

Onions, who had run out Phil Jaques and taken two wickets the previous evening, then removed Gary Balance for five to confirm his five-wicket haul and leave the visitors reeling at 107-6.

They were indebted to an unbeaten 25 from ex-Durham man Liam Plunkett in a partial recovery before they were all out for 177, 60 behind.

Adil Rashid also scored 25 before he fell leg before wicket - the first of three victims for Ben Stokes.

Onions finished with 5-63 off 19 overs, while Stokes captured 3-26 from 9.3 overs to give the hosts the advantage.
