July 05, 2003 17:43 IST
India's Mohammad Kaif led Derbyshire's fightback with an unbeaten 76 as the county, following-on 316 behind, made 238 for five at close of play on the penultimate day of their four-day tie against Yorkshire at Derby on Friday.
Kaif, who was out for a duck in the first innings in the match, appeared to have come to terms with English conditions, occasionally unfurling elegant strokes.
Earlier in the first innings, Derbyshire were reduced to 80 for eight but stout resistance from Nathan Dumelow, who scored an unbeaten 60, carried them to 128 before they were all out.
Following on, Derbyshire had reached 238 for five at close of play.
Yorkshire: 444 (C White 173 not out, M J Lumb 93 G Welch 6 for 102).
Derbyshire: 128 (M J Di Venuto 27, N R C Dumelow not out 60, Kirby 3/31 Sidebottom 6/38) and 238 for 5 (Venuto 74, M Kaif not out 76, D G Cork not out 26).
