Dizzy praises five-star Yorkshire performance

— 24 June 2014

Yorkshire Coach Jason Gillespie was’incredibly happy’ with his sides emphatic victory over Warwickshire at Edgbaston, which has seen the Tykes move to the top of the LV= County Championship.

In the last three matches against Warwickshire, Yorkshire have asserted their authority by defeating the Bears by an innings in each of those games.

“I am incredibly happy,” said Gillespie.

  • “It’s always nice to win. You go out and try to win every game, but there’s certain things you need to tick off to achieve that. We had a team meeting the night before the game, and we spoke about the areas we needed to get right this game because you can’t take any team lightly.

    “When we spoke about the things we wanted to improve on, I thought our catching in this game was fantastic. We have, at times, put down the odd chance, but the way we caught in this game was a highlight.
    “Everything was about our performance. We were positive with the bat, and we didn’t let the bowlers settle. Our bowlers were just ruthless. They were disciplined. We just wanted to pitch the ball up and look to get wickets off the front foot. The majority of the dismissals we got were off the front foot.
    “You’re always seeking for a way to try and have that perfect performance. This is up there. It is a fantastic win. Considering the personnel change that we’ve had to have at Yorkshire this year, it’s pretty special. Guys are coming in and getting the job done.”

    Gillespie was particularly satisfied by the efforts of the fringe players, who have come in and are now pushing for a regular place in the team.

    “Richie Pyrah, we asked him for a big effort in this game,” added Gillespie

  • Karl Carver

    “It was a big job batting at seven and being a change bowler, he picked up three important wickets in the first innings. He really stepped up, and that’s what you want from players on the fringes.

    “Aaron (Finch) got his hundred, which was great. I thought yesterday morning, the way that Leesy and Galey batted was outstanding. I think we got 30 runs in the first three and bit overs, which set the tone for the day. There were some tough periods that our batters had to get through against a very good attack.

    “I was very impressed with Karl (Carver). An 18-year-old kid coming in, he was right at home. He bowled well. The lads are all delighted that he’s picked up a couple of wickets on debut.”

    With Yorkshire moving back to the top of the league, the Australian coach is not thinking too far ahead and wants to take each game at a time.

    “We’re not looking too far ahead,” he said.

    “We’re just going to celebrate this win, and we’re not looking any further than that. As you’ve seen in the Championship, things can change very quickly. We’ve got a few T20 games coming up, then we’ll look to Durham at Headingley.”

    Meanwhile, Gillespie confirmed that seamer Tim Bresnan will resume training in the next few days.

    “Brezzy’s good, he’s feeling good,” he said. “He will be back training in the next couple of days.”
