Report by Elise Good

Welbeck Cricket Club hosted two friendly T20 matches on Sunday (18/04) between Nottingham Women 1st XI and Yorkshire Women 1st XI.

Captain Hannah Buck lost the toss and Yorkshire were put into field first. Despite a few missed chances in the field Yorkshire restricted Notts to 135 for 5 off their 20 overs, Graves top scoring with 67 before being bowled by Woolston who only went for 14 runs off her 3 overs. Rossi, Marlow and Slater all adding a wicket a piece.

After a solid start from Good and North progressing to 15/0 off 3 unfortunately Yorkshire found theIr first game back a challenge and came up short in their batting, only scoring 58 for 7 off 20 overs.

After a short break the second fixture of the day took its toll on Yorkshire who were bowled out for 73 with more than one over to spare. After 2 early wickets, a quick 10 from North off only 4 balls Yorkshire looked in danger. Buck and Darlow rebuilt and put on a 40 run partnership before Buck was bowled by Cook for 24.

Even a much better fielding performance from Yorkshire couldn’t stop Notts who were only 2 down with 5.2 overs remaining. Both Yorkshire spinners tried their best to keep Notts out of reach with Thompson finishing her 3 overs for only 8 runs and Marlow 4 overs for 15.

Captain Buck said: “The young side showed good resilience as a bowling unit and executed their plans well. Although we came away with the loss there was some good individual performances that we can build on for the rest of the season.”

“Due to COVID not everyone’s had the pre season they would have liked but now the first games out the window hopefully we will be back to winning ways.”

Yorkshire Women 1st XI take on Cumbria at Arnside CC on Sunday, in the first 2 T20s of their vitality blast campaign.
