Leading by 208 overnight Yorkshire were looking to press ahead (weather permitting). Matthew Revis and George Hill took their partnership to 38 from 88 balls before the former was caught at second slip for 15. First innings top scorer Tom Loten perished quickly this time for 5 caught at fourth slip and Yorkshire were 62-4, leading by 243.

Matthew Waite and Ben Birkhead were both bowled for six and five respectively soon followed by Will Luxton for two and the White Rose reached lunch at 101-7, a lead of 282.

Through it all George Hill stood fast and posted his half century from 132 balls with 5 fours. Matt Pillans was well taken at second slip for eight and when bad light and rain came at 2.45pm Yorkshire had reached 135-8, a lead of 316.

Following a heavy down pour the ground staff worked their magic and play resumed at 4.50pm with 32 overs remaining. Hill and Josh Sullivan resumed and stretched their ninth wicket partnership to 71 before George was taken at first slip for an excellent 77 from 167 balls (8×4). Sullivan remained unbeaten on 33 as Yorkshire were dismissed for 201 leaving Notts a total of 383 for victory.

In the 13 overs remaining they had reached 24-2, a wicket each for Waite and Pillans. The final day awaits with 96 overs remaining.

John Virr – 2nd XI Scorer


The ninth-wicket partnership between George Hill and Josh Sullivan in the Yorkshire’s second innings is a new record for the County against Nottinghamshire.

It beats the previous record of 60 made by Mike Hellawell & GB Wood at Worksop in 1959.
