Andrew Gale

“That game probably sums up the way we’ve played in the tournament.

“We do some really good stuff, like the 100 partnership between Brooky and Lythy. I thought we had a grip of the game then, but we were just not ruthless enough.

“Someone’s got to take it on there. You lose two wickets in three balls and then Jack gets out and you’re suddenly backs to the wall thinking, ‘Can we scrape to 270-280’. But we just kept losing wickets.

“When you’re playing good teams like Notts, you can’t afford to give them a sniff.

“When you have your noses in front, you have to cash in. One of those two (Brook and Lyth) has to go on and make a big score. That’s the difference.

“Had we got 320 or 350, we’d have had a sniff.

“We needed something special with the ball and in the field.

“The lads fought and made Notts work hard to knock off those runs, but we were fighting a losing cause at times. We just needed something to bowl at. In this day and age, 220’s well below par.

“We have to win three from three now to stand any chance of going through.”

5.10pm Notts have won by four wickets with a little over 15 overs to spare, captain Steven Mullaney finishing with an unbeaten half-century. Matthew Waite claimed the late wicket of Tom Moores.

It means that Yorkshire have now lost two, tied two and won one.

They will need to win their remaining three games and hope other results go their way to reach the top three places in the North for knockout qualification.

Northants next up at Wantage Road on Wednesday (1pm) on Sky Sports.

4.42pm Patel and Mullaney have steadied and are now starting to think about finishing this game. They have upped the rate in the last couple of overs, having brought up their 50 stand. Notts 180-4 with Patel 35 and Mullaney 36. 34 to win in 21 overs.

4.22pm Notts 142-4 in the 24th over. Patel has 26 and Mullaney 11. The hosts need 72 to win. Yorkshire fighting hard but need a couple of quick wickets.

3.39pm Duckett gone! Second wicket, and this one goes to Pillans, who squares Duckett up and sees a leading edge loop to cover. Notts 98-2 in the 14th over.

3.27pm Stunning catch by Mat Pillans, one-handed diving away low to his right off Patterson as Nash doesn’t quite get all of a pull. It’s 75-1 after 11.

3.20pm Nash has just pulled Olivier for six over mid-wicket, gaining some revenge for an earlier blow on the head. Notts move to 68-0 in the 10th.

2.53pm Notts have moved to 20-0 in the fourth over.

2.39pm Notts are 8-0 after one over of their chase of 214, bowled by Matthew Waite. Chris Nash with on-driven and pulled boundaries off the first and last balls of the over. Duanne Olivier sharing the new ball, Joe Clarke on strike.


Yorkshire are on the back foot at the halfway stage of their Royal London one-day Cup clash with Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge having been bowled out for 213.

In the group leaders’ two previous matches here, there have been three scores above 400, so the Vikings look to be a long way below par having elected to bat first.

Yorkshire stumbled amid a number of miscued and loose shots against an on-song attack.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore lofted the off-spin of Matt Carter (2-36 from eight overs) to deep mid-wicket nine balls into the game, leaving the score at 5-1.

Top-scorer Adam Lyth, with 63 off 54 balls, and Harry Brook (39) recovered things impressively with a 107 partnership inside 15 overs.

Lyth hit two sixes and Brook had success hitting the seamers over the top for four more than once.

But they were two of three key wickets to fall for 10 runs in three-and-a-half-overs as the score fell to 122-4 in the 20th.

From there, Yorkshire failed to recover as a series of batsmen were caught pulling or miscueing.

England fringe seamer Jake Ball led the way with three wickets, added to two apiece for Luke Fletcher, Carter and Australian James Pattinson.

1.54pm Poysden is caught behind off Fletcher and Yorkshire are 213 all out inside 43 overs. They’re going to have to bowl out of their skins to defend 214.

1.38pm Matthew Waite falls to Pattinson, bowled for 32. Yorkshire under serious pressure at 205-9 in the 40th over.

1.05pm Pillans caught at cover, over his shoulder, by Clarke off Ball. Yorkshire171-7.

1pm Tattersall gone! He’s caught by Duckett running in from deep mid-wicket off Ball, 19. Yorkshire 164-6 in the 30th over.

12.44pm Yorkshire are 154-4 after 27 overs. After a healthy start, they have been held back by the loss of those three quick wickets from 112-1 to 122-4. Ballance and Tattersall at the crease on 24 and 13.

12.02pm Brook has been pulled trying to pull Carter, for 39. Yorkshire 112-2. Make that 112-3 as Lyth is caught behind off Patel for 63.

11.37am Life for Lyth, who pulled Ball for six with his first ball in the 10th over. Dropped two balls later at deep mid-wicket on 35. 64-1 in the 10th..

11.26am Yorkshire have recovered from the early loss of Tom Kohler-Cadmore, with Lyth and Brook taking the score to 36-1 in the eighth over.

11.05am Kohler-Cadmore gone! He miscues off-spinner Carter to deep mid-wicket running in from the fence. Yorkshire 5-1 in the second. Harry Brook is in at number three. It seemed as if he was looking to go much straighter and dragged it.

11.02am Four off the first over from Luke Fletcher, a cut boundary for Adam Lyth off the first ball of the game. Yorkshire 4-0. Off-spinner Matthew Carter sharing the new ball, with Tom Kohler-Cadmore facing.

10.35am Yorkshire have won the toss and will bat.

Nottinghamshire: Nash, Clarke, Duckett, Libby, Moores w, Mullaney c, Patel, Fletcher, Pattinson, Carter, Ball.

Yorkshire: Kohler-Cadmore, Lyth, Brook, Ballance, Leaning, Tattersall w, Waite, Patterson c, Pillans, Poysden, Olivier.

North Group

Durham v Derbyshire, Emirates Riverside
Lancashire v Leicestershire, Emirates Old Trafford
Notts v Yorkshire, Trent Bridge
Worcestershire v Warwickshire, New Road

South Group

Essex v Hampshire, Chelmsford
Glamorgan v Surrey, Sophia Gardens
Gloucestershire v Somerset, Bristol

Good morning from Trent Bridge, where the sun is out and we’re set fair for the Vikings fifth North Group clash, against unbeaten leaders Nottinghamshire.

The Outlaws sit top of the group with four wins from four, while Yorkshire are sixth in the group with a win, a defeat and two ties.

We are expecting a high-scoring game today. Notts have posted 400 plus in both of their previous home games, wins over Lancashire and Leicestershire, the latest here on Friday. In the Lancashire game, the visitors were chasing 418 and lost by only 11 runs.

The Vikings could do with a win today or they have their backs against the wall in terms of a top three finish and knockout qualification.

We start at 11am. It’s a sell out at Trent Bridge, who are hosting their Family Fun Day with all tickets £1.
