Matthew Fisher is backing Yorkshire to hit back from the frustrations of day one against Glamorgan when they return to Emerald Headingley in the morning.
Glamorgan enjoyed the better of the LV= Insurance County Championship’s opening day, recovering from 29-3 and 132-7 to post 310-8 from 96 overs.
Kiran Carlson, Dan Douthwaite and Timm van der Gugten all posted fifties, added to by a couple of other valuable contributions. New ball seamer Fisher finished the day with 2-78 from 21 overs.
He said: “In first-class cricket, we all know there’s going to be tough days, and it’s about how we come back from this. That shows where you are as a side. And I think we will.
“It’s just about learning. If you have a bad session, it’s about not having three bad sessions.
“Up to the partnership between Douthwaite and van der Gugten (122 for the eighth wicket), I think we bowled good but not exceptionally well. Our standards are really high, and we weren’t even at our best in the first couple of sessions.
“When they got going, it maybe took us by surprise, and we were a little bit slow to react.
“It looks a good pitch. So if we can come back and get them out cheaply, hopefully we can pile them (runs) on as well.
“At the start of that partnership (Douthwaite and VDG) we maybe got greedy and in turn gave them a few balls to hit. Then we couldn’t claw back the momentum.
“They did play well, but we need to be better. We just need to focus on doing our good things for longer.”
Fisher added: “I was fairly happy with how I bowled up to about my 12th over. Then Douthwaite came in, I got on his legs a few times and he clipped me for four. That was me just looking for the perfect ball.
“On another day we’d have got that eighth wicket quite quickly and bowled them out cheaply. Hopefully it’s a bit of a freak thing. But credit to them, they played well.”
