Ben Coad's quick blast boosts Academy title chase

— 21 July 2013

Paceman Ben Coad, library picture, took the first two wickets and nipped in with the last as Yorkshire Academy bundled out Rotherham for 133 to set up today’s (Saturday) victory by six wickets at Weetwood in the Solly Sports ECB Yorkshire County Premier League.

It was a good toss for Rotherham to win. James Moorhouse and Gareth Pursehouse shared an opening stand of 40 – broken when wicket-keeper Barney Gibson caught Gareth off Coad. Two overs later Coad struck again when skipper Will Rhodes caught the second Pursehouse at slip.


James Moorhouse added 11 with Archie Ogden, but he trudged back up the pavilion steps when he was caught brilliantly by James Wainman.  53-3 became 84-7 as the bowlers took control. Rotherham failed to consolidate, and left-arm spinner Alex Leyshon took 2- 9 in his seven-over spell.


Jared Warner from the city end had a splendid spell, taking 2-13 in six overs. It was a disappointing performance by the Rotherham middle-order, the innings closing on 133. Only Cooper, 21, showed any initiative in the second half, but he skied a catch to the safe hands of Logan at deep mid-off. 


Jonathan Tattersall and Eliot Callis shared an opening partnership of 14. Tattersall hit two fine square-cuts, but he was clean bowled by Ben Sanderson, who 31 runs later had Callis lbw for 18. No. 3 Mosun Hussain slowly built his innings after losing skipper Rhodes to a superb diving catch by Moorhouse.


Hussain and Gibson put on 24, but Sanderson at second slip snaffled Gibson. The Academy still needed 59. Hussain played the sheet anchor, and with Josh Shaw hitting 35 in 34 balls the target was easily passed. Eight more points.


The Academy are hanging on behind League leaders York – whom they play in a fortnight’s time. It will be a testing fixture, but if the Academy win it could mean a tight finish in the final race for League honours.
