REACTION – Steve Patterson

“It’s been very pleasing. It’s been an interesting few days.

“After 40-4 on the first day, we were in a precarious position. But the way Harry Brook played initially to help get us back to some kind of score with Jonny Tatts was impressive. Then the way Tommo played at the end was fantastic.

“We ended up getting 50 more than we expected to get.

“We knew with a young attack it would be hard work against an experienced Notts team. But we chipped away hard in that first innings.

“We were a little bit disappointed with the end. The way Tom Moores played meant they got 40 or 50 more than we felt they should.

“A 90 odd-run deficit going into the second innings was going to be tough, especially when we lost Tom second over.

“But Lythy and Jonny showed their experience and quality to put us back into some kind of position. Then Tatts with Brooky and Tommo got us up to a score we felt gave us a chance. That was all it was initially.

“But we stuck hard at the task. They played it a bit differently to how we expected, and we ran out winners by 90 runs.

“I believe Notts are one of the strongest sides in our group in terms of experience and ability. But they are a team who haven’t won for a while. Sometimes when that happens, you almost forget how to win.

“I felt there was a little element of that in the fourth innings.

“It wasn’t a huge chase, but the fact we put that pressure on and got a couple of early ones got us on top.

“It was a little bit surprising how it went at the end. We thought it was going to be a long slog and might get down to the last 20 runs. But for it to happen the way it did, we’re delighted.”

Olivier trapped Chris Nash lbw before Dom Leech had Haseeb Hameed caught behind down leg as the score fell to 16-2 after six overs.

Ben Duckett (19) and Joe Clarke (eight not out) then set about a recovery, only for it to be ended when the former fended the penultimate ball of the session from Olivier into the gully, where Dawid Malan took a superb diving catch.

Notts had been set their target in a minimum of 77 overs as both sides chase a Bob Willis Trophy win, and they need 142 more.

The White Rose lost their final three wickets, for the addition of 19 runs, in the opening 10.2 overs of play.

Jonny Tattersall, 44 not out overnight, made 53, bringing up his fifty off 170 balls on the way.

Seamer Zak Chappell and off-spinner Matt Carter both finished with four wickets apiece.

Chappell had Olivier caught behind before Carter had both Leech and Tattersall caught at slip by Steven Mullaney.

Leech top-edged a sweep and Tattersall edged an attempted reverse sweep.

Lunch -1.03pm Duckett gone! He’s fended a short ball from Olivier to a diving Malan in the gully. Ball up more than Duckett expected. Excellent catch. 46-3 after 12.5 overs. Notts need 142 more to win.

11.05am We’re up and running at Trent Bridge, where Yorkshire are 260-7, leading by 169. Carter and Chappell in operation for the hosts, with Tattersall 42 and Olivier 8.

11.04am Here’s a look around the grounds as we get underway here……


RESULT: Durham 180 and 110 lost to Lancashire 308, Riverside
RESULT: Leicestershire 199 and 220 lost to Derbyshire 408 and 12-1, Grace Road


Gloucestershire 210 and 197-6 v Warwickshire 247, Bristol
Worcestershire 455-8 and 98-2 v Glamorgan 374, New Road
RESULT: Northamptonshire 67 and 154 lost to Somerset 166 and 222, Wantage Road


RESULT: Kent 530-1 beat Sussex 332 and 173, Canterbury
Essex 262 and 261 v Surrey 187 and 28-1, Chelmsford
Middlesex 252 and 201 v Hampshire 296-9 and 61-3, Radlett

Good morning from Trent Bridge, where we are greeted by hazy sunshine ahead of the fourth and final day of our clash with Nottinghamshire. And we could be in for one heck of a day’s play.

All results remain possible, with Yorkshire currently leading by 168 with three second-innings wickets in hand.

If they can push that lead up to around 220 – Jonny Tattersall is currently 41 not out and Duanne Olivier eight – then Yorkshire’s chances of a second successive North Group win would seem to be strong.

There has been talk of a bit of rain around today, so hopefully that doesn’t come to pass.

You can watch all of today’s action unfold on the live-stream on our match centre.

We will be underway at 11am. Enjoy the day.
