Jack Brooks claimed two big wickets to undermine Derbyshire’s resistance as Yorkshire pressed for back-to-back Championship victories at Headingley today.
The former Northants seamer, who joined Yorkshire during the winter, struck twice shortly before tea to end stubborn innings from Wayne Madsen and Wes Durston to leave Derbyshire trailing by 45 runs with 35 overs remaining on 157 for six.
The pair had frustrated Yorkshire for 26 overs adding 92 crucial runs until Durston clipped Brooks to mid-wicket after reaching his half century and was followed four overs later when Madsen fell lbw to a full-length ball. Adil Rashid claimed a further breakthrough shortly before tea when David Wainwright played on.
Yorkshire had resumed the final day 122 runs ahead on 597 for five, Yorkshire went looking for quick runs before declaring 50 minutes after the start having added 80 runs in 10 overs with Adil Rashid hitting an unbeaten 36 off 365 balls.
That effort took Yorkshire to 677 for seven before they declared, taking them past their previous highest score of 662 against Derbyshire at Chesterfield in 1898, it was their joint fourth highest championship total in history and the equal highest at Headingley, matching the total against Durham in 2006.
The declaration gave them a minimum of 84 overs to bowl Derbyshire out and three wickets before lunch put Yorkshire firmly in control. Tim Bresnan gave them a flying start by winning an lbw against Billy Godleman with an inswinger in the third over before tempting Chesney Hughes into edging to second slip and Liam Plunkett secured the big wicket of Shivnarine Chanderpaul in the over before lunch.
Brooks nearly did the hat-trick after tea: he persuaded Redfern to edge to wicket-keeper Bairstow without addition to the score…and next ball he sent back Poynton lbw. Next ball might have been a hat-trick and five-for…but Groenewald played it away.
Five runs were added before Rashid bowled Groenewald – and one run before Brooks trapped Palladino in front for a duck and completed his five-for. The Headingley crowd rose to applaud their heroes back to the pavilion.
