Duanne Olivier

“It’s really special to get five wickets in my first Championship match for Yorkshire.

“It’s a very good batting wicket, and it took quite a bit of grafting from everyone.

“But I felt that we pulled it back nicely to bowl them out for just over 400 because they looked set in stone to get a very big score.

“At the end of the day, I’m very happy with my performance and glad I contributed towards the team.”

6.12pm We are off for bad light. Yorkshire 206-5 from 59 overs, 10 remaining to bowl in theory. Root is 56 not out and Tattersall four.

5.37pm Leaning is bowled for nought shouldering arms against Fletcher. 195-5.

5.32pm Second wicket for Broad, who has Kohler-Cadmore caught at deep square for 22. Yorkshire now 194-4 with Root on 48.

Tea Adam Lyth’s unbeaten 71 has underpinned Yorkshire’s strong start to their first-innings reply to Nottinghamshire’s 408 on day two of the Specsavers County Championship season opener at Trent Bridge.

The White Rose started their reply five minutes before lunch and lost Harry Brook for 30 and Gary Ballance (seven) during the afternoon session on the way to a tea-time score of 137-2 from 37 overs

Brook was trapped lbw by Stuart Broad and Ballance bowled by Luke Fletcher.

Lyth has shared an unbroken 67 with England Test captain Joe Root through the second half of the afternoon.

Root was dropped by Chris Nash at third slip on eight off Paul Coughlin, but aside from that let-off has looked in excellent order as he starts a World Cup and Ashes summer.

He has driven through the covers and down the ground particularly handsomely on the way to an unbeaten 26.

3.35pm Yorkshire’s first half-century of the season goes to Adam Lyth, off 87 balls with 10×4s. 111-2 in the 28th over in reply to 408.

3.13pm Let off for Root, who is dropped on 8 by Nash at third slip diving across second, Coughlin the bowler. Yorkshire 83-2.

2.46pm Yorkshire 52-1 in the 18th over. Lyth 17 and Ballance 4.

1.52pm It’s been a productive start to the afternoon for Yorkshire, who are 21-0 after four overs. Brook has 13 and Lyth 8.

Lunch Yorkshire enjoyed a productive second morning at Trent Bridge to bowl Nottinghamshire out for 408, with Duanne Olivier finishing with 5-96.

Notts started day two in a position of strength at 324-5 and would have been hoping for a bigger total.

But Olivier claimed three of the morning wickets, added to two for captain Steve Patterson, who finished with 4-78.

Harry Brook hit two boundaries off Jake Ball in the second over as Yorkshire replied with 8-0 from two overs at lunch.

Joe Clarke fell in the fourth over of the day, as Olivier uprooted the centurion’s middle stump for a well made 112, leaving the score at 329-6 in the 100th over.

Tom Moores miscued a drive at Olivier to cover shortly afterwards as the South African took the first of two wickets in the 106th over.

He also trapped Stuart Broad lbw for a two-ball duck – 358-7.

Patterson had Luke Fletcher caught at slip by Tom Kohler-Cadmore in the 117th over with 375 on the board before Paul Coughlin’s 46 helped his side beyond 400 before he edged Patterson behind shortly before lunch.

Notts finished with four batting points to Yorkshire’s two bowling points.

12.46pm Notts are 408 all out as Paul Coughlin is caught behind off Steve Patterson for 46. Patterson’s fourth wicket, Olivier claimed five and Yorkshire will have to bat for five minutes or so just before lunch.

12pm The 110-over bonus point cut off passes, and Notts are 368-8, meaning they finish with four of the five batting points and Yorkshire two of the three bowling points.

11.44am Yorkshire’s excellent morning gets better. Olivier traps Stuart Broad lbw for a two-ball duck and Notts are 358-8 after 106 overs. Olivier has a debut five-wicket haul.

11.33am Notts have reached 350-6 in the 104th over. That’s four bonus points to two at the moment.

11.12am Early success for Duanne Olivier, who uproots Joe Clarke’s middle peg for 112. Notts have fallen to 329-6. Paul Coughlin the new man at the crease.

On the comeback trail

11am We are up and running at Trent Bridge, and there is play at Southampton, where Hampshire are 303-4 against Essex. Still no play at Taunton, however, between Somerset and Kent. Rain wiped out day one, and play has been delayed this morning as well.

Good morning from Trent Bridge, where it is another dry and bright day for the second day of our Specsavers County Championship clash with Nottinghamshire.

Notts had the better of yesterday’s play as they closed on 324-5 thanks largely to Joe Clarke’s unbeaten 109, the first hundred of the Championship summer by any batsman.

While the pitch isn’t offering a great deal for the bowlers, Yorkshire felt they could have been better with the ball yesterday.

“We bowled ok without being really good,” was captain Steve Patterson’s assessment.

The players are warming up, and Tim Bresnan is with them as he completes his return to fitness from a back injury. It is hoped he will be in contention for Hampshire next week.
