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 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.”
