*Yorkshire wicketkeeper Jonny Tattersall”
“As far as I was aware, we were going to bat first. I think that would have been the right decision, but we got into a bit of a sticky situation early on against Wood, who bowled nicely.
“The first three wickets were genuine dismissals with some good bowling, so you have to give him credit.
“There were also a couple of loose ones, the lads will be honest. But we’re just glad to get 230 on the board there.
“It’s nice to get some runs. We tried to build partnerships, and Tim (Bresnan) managed to hang around as well. We got into a nice flow, and it was nice to bat out there.
“Conditions were tough bowling up the hill and into the wind.
“There’s definitely something in the pitch. We’ve seen that even tonight. Hopefully we can come back tomorrow and take some wickets.”
6.11pm Close. Notts, replying to 232, close on 41-0 from 17 overs. Yorkshire earlier recovered from 38-5 thanks to Tattersall’s superb 92.

Tea Yorkshire are closing in on a first batting bonus point for reaching 200 thanks to first day fifties for Jonny Tattersall and Tim Bresnan against Nottinghamshire at Scarborough.
The White Rose fell to 38-5 before lunch, only for the sixth-wicket pair to share 121.
Yorkshire lost two wickets in the afternoon, advancing from 84-5 to 192-7 from 64 overs.
Tattersall will begin the evening on 81 off 181 balls, while Bresnan fell for 58 off 122.
Tattersall reached 50 off 103 balls and Bresnan followed him there off 99 balls shortly afterwards.
Bresnan’s last three first-class fifties dating back to the start of last season have all come against Notts.
He was the first of only two wickets to fall in the afternoon when he edged behind against left-arm spinner Liam Patterson-White, leaving Yorkshire at 159-6 in the 55th over.
South African Test spinner Keshav Maharaj then pulled Luke Fletcher for six to get off the mark and pass 3,000 first-class career runs in the process before being bowled by the same man (178-7 after 60 overs).
Steve Patterson is unbeaten on seven.
3.41pm Yorkshire have lost their seventh wicket – Maharaj bowled by Fletcher for seven. 178-7.
3.36pm Maharaj recently got off the mark with a pulled six off Fletcher, passing 3,000 first-class career runs in the process. Yorkshire 177-6 now as we approach tea.
3.19pm Bresnan falls caught behind for 54 off Patterson-White’s left-arm spin – pushing forwards. Yorkshire are 159-6 in the 55th, ending a stand of 121 with Tattersall, who is 65 not out. Keshav Maharaj strides to the crease.
2.53pm 99-ball fifty for Bresnan. Yorkshire, who are now 147-5 in the 47th over, continue to recover. Notts have gone from looking like taking a wicket every ball to not looking like taking one at all.
2.43pm Super stuff from Tattersall and Bresnan as they take us from 38-5 to 139-5 and counting in the 44th over.

2.10pm Notts had turned to spin, pardon the pun, in the form of Liam Patterson-White. But then they have a change of heart. Luke Fletcher to resume. Yorkshire 114-5.

Lunch Luke Wood claimed five wickets in a superb opening burst, but Jonny Tattersall and Tim Bresnan set about a late morning recovery against Nottinghamshire at Scarborough.
Yorkshire’s eleventh Specsavers County Championship match of the season started with them slipping to 7-3 and 38-5 having been asked to bat, but they have reached lunch on 84-5.
Left-armer Wood claimed all five for 28 in nine overs, including the first three in six balls across his first two overs.
Wood took advantage of swing, seam and extra bounce at North Marine Road.
He had Adam Lyth caught behind, Gary Ballance caught at point off the shoulder the bat and Tom Kohler-Cadmore bowled. Later, he had Harry Brook caught behind and Will Fraine caught at third slip.
But sixth-wicket pair, recovering from 38-5 in the 14th over, Tattersall and Bresnan have shared an unbroken 46. They will begin the afternoon on 34 and 25 respectively.
12.46pm Encouraging signs for Yorkshire as Tattersall and Bresnan take Yorkshire to 69-5 inside the last 15 minutes of a testing morning.
12.01pm Fraine gone! He’s been caught at third slip for 11 by Nash off Wood, who now has five. It’s 38-5 and Yorkshire are in bother. The one thing I would say is that bowling conditions are ideal, swing and seam.
11.27am Brook gone! Wood gets his fourth of the morning. Caught behind as Brook follows one with extra bounce. Yorkshire are 13-4 in the sixth.
11.17am Yorkshire are 7-3 in the fourth over. Wood bowls Kohler-Cadmore for one. The left-armer has struck three times in six balls.
OUT! Ballance pops a catch up to point off Wood, a touch of lift and shoulder of the bat. Two in three balls. It’s 5-2.

11.06am Lyth gone! Early breakthrough for Notts as Wood gets Lyth caught behind for four. Yorkshire are 5-1 in the second.
11.01am Adam Lyth drives Luke Fletcher down the ground for four in the first over. 4-0.
10.36am There has not been a toss here at Scarborough, so Yorkshire will be batting first. And the teams are as follows…
Yorkshire: Lyth, Fraine, Ballance, Kohler-Cadmore, Brook, Tattersall w, Bresnan, Maharaj, Patterson c, Coad, Olivier.
Nottinghamshire: Slater, Libby, Nash c, Clarke, Duckett, Moores w, Patterson-White, Coughlin, Fletcher, Wood, Ball.
Good morning from Scarborough, where it is a gloriously sunny morning ahead of our Championship clash with Nottinghamshire.
After 10 T20 Blast group games, we return to four-day action for the first time in approximately a month for our eleventh game of the season.
Yorkshire are third and 38 points behind leaders Essex having won four of their 10 games, while Notts are bottom of the table without a win and having lost seven of their 10.
The visitors will be without captain Steven Mullaney as he recovers from knee surgery.
It looks like we should be set fair weather wise all throughout Festival week.
