Mat Pillans

“At half-time, we were quite happy with their score.

“Then to lose five wickets quite quickly with not many runs on the board wasn’t great for us. But Bres and Tatts showed their class with a really good partnership, which allowed everyone following them to come in and be a little bit more settled.

“It was a tough one for Josh right at the end. He was right up for it, and we were all backing him.

“He is a bit disappointed with the way it went, but we are quite happy, after the way we started our innings, to get the tie.

“The way we came back, we will take a lot of positives out of that, and we are happy with the point.”

6.29pm Match tied. Poysden and Patterson run a bye. Incredible game of cricket. One point each.

6.26pm Pillans gone! Brookes gets him caught at mid-on. 268-9. Three off two balls needed.

6.22pm 10 off the last, now 9 off five balls. Patterson facing Brookes.

6.16pm Rashid caught at long-off, Patel the bowler. 251-8 with 10 balls left.

6.06pm OUT! Bresnan falls for 89, great knock. Caught at cover off Woakes. 235-7. Two wickets in four balls. 36 off 27 needed.

6.02pm Tattersall gone! He’s been bowled by Patel for a brilliant 79. Yorkshire 227-6 after 45, needing 44.

5.30pm Bresnan follows Tattersall to 50 off 56 balls. Superb recovery from these two. 168-5 in the 37th over.

5.21pm Yorkshire are 147-5 after 31 overs, needing 124 more. Tattersall and Bresnan in the forties.

4.38pm Willey pulls Panayi to mid-on and falls for 40. That’s a huge blow to Yorkshire’s hopes. 89-5 in the 22nd.

4.26pm Willey and Tattersall are repairing the early damage, but still a long way to go. They have taken the score to 83-4 in the 20th over, sharing 50 and counting. Willey 39 and Tattersall 22.

3.44pm Brook gone! He’s been caught by Sibley, diving towards gully as Woakes strikes. Yorkshire on the back foot at 29-3 in the ninth.

3.19pm Yorkshire are 11-0 after three overs of their chase. Tom Kohler-Cadmore has nine of them.

Mid innings Mat Pillans continued his excellent start to the Royal London one-day Cup with three wickets as Warwickshire were restricted to 270-8 batting first at Edgbaston.

Pillans claimed a career best 5-29 to help the Vikings beat Leicestershire at Emerald Headingley on Wednesday and returned 3-56 from eight here.

Tim Bresnan and Josh Poysden also picked up two wickets apiece, while captain Steve Patterson was typical frugal despite not striking.

Bresnan (2-27 from six overs) removed openers Ed Pollock and Dom Sibley with the new ball as the Bears, invited to bat, fell to 53-2 in the 10th over.

Patterson conceded only 14 runs in his first six overs and finished with 0-41 from 10.

Tim Ambrose led the way for the hosts with 77 off 108 balls, while Sam Hain added 40 and former Yorkshire all-rounder Will Rhodes 43.

But Yorkshire bowled and fielded expertly on what looks to be a decent batting surface.

Bresnan and David Willey only bowled 12 overs between them.

2.18pm Second and third wickets for Pillans in the 49th. Ambrose caught at deep mid-wicket for 77 and Henry Brookes caught behind. 260-8.

1.45pm Ambrose reaches his fifty off 84 balls with 3×4s. Warwickshire 202-5 in the 41st.

1.08pm There is wicket number four. Pillans gets Rhodes caught behind down leg for 43. Warwickshire are 155-4 in the 32nd over.

1.02pm Oh so nearly wicket number four for Yorkshire as Ambrose on 36 loops a chance off the splice of the bat against Pillans just in front of a diving Patterson at mid-on. Warwickshire 146-3 after 30.

12.50pm Will Rhodes, in his second season at Edgbaston following his move from Yorkshire, has started confidently, hoisting Josh Poysden over mid-wicket for six and driving him for four shortly afterwards. He has 25 of 130-3 in the 28th over.

12.09pm Steve Patterson, in particular, and Adil Rashid have really restricted the Warwickshire run rate. The hosts brought their 50 up in the ninth over but haven’t been able to get going through Tim Ambrose, who has 13, and Sam Hain 32. The home score is 77-2 after 18, and the pitch looks a good one. Patterson about to begin his sixth over. He has only conceded nine runs.

11.43am Sibley gone! He’s been caught behind off Bresnan after inside-edging onto his pad. It loops up and Tattersall takes the catch running forwards. Warwickshire 53-2 in the 10th.

We could do with getting him out then!

11.25am Yorkshire will be chuffed with their work so far. David Willey and Tim Bresnan have beaten the bat a few times, but Sam Hain and Dom Sibley have moved the score to 31-1 in the seventh over.

11.08am Fabulous start for Yorkshire and Tim Bresnan, whose fifth ball accounts for dangerous opener Ed Pollock, who is bowled for four. Warwickshire 6-1 after two overs.

10.34am Yorkshire. have won the toss and will bowl. They field the same team as Wednesday.

Warwickshire: Pollock, Sibley, Hain, Rhodes, Ambrose w, Banks, Woakes, Thomson, Patel c, Panayi, Brookes.

Yorkshire: Lyth, Kohler-Cadmore, Willey, Brook, Ballance, Tattersall w, Bresnan, Pillans, Rashid, Patterson c, Poysden.

Sad news, condolences to all his family and friends

Good morning from Edgbaston, where it is a gorgeous sunny start to the day.

Yorkshire take on Warwickshire, who begin their Royal London one-day Cup campaign today.

The Vikings started with a thumping North Group victory over Leicestershire at Emerald Headingley on Wednesday, by 213 runs with more than 20 overs to spare.

It will be interesting to see if there are any changes to the side, especially the bowling attack. Duanne Olivier was rested against the Foxes, who crumbled in the face of his fellow South African Mat Pillans.

Pillans returned career best figures of 5-29 as, in pursuit of 380, the visitors crumbled to 166 all out.

Warwickshire won last year’s clash between the two sides at Headingley, with Sam Hain hitting an unbeaten century in a successful pursuit of 248.

We start at 11am. Enjoy the day.
