Pyrah demands Yorkshire to capitalise on positive team effort

— 22 June 2014

Yorkshire all-rounder Richard Pyrah is looking for the batsmen to build on a ”good disciplined performance” by the bowlers.

He said: “It was a good effort to bowl them out. Hopefully we can now get a good score and put pressure on them.

“There’s a bit of carry in the pitch – which made a change from Arundel last week – and the ball swung for us.”

  • “We did well today. We never let them off the hook, and it was a very disciplined performance.

    “It’s quite a dry pitch with a few cracks on it. I think it’s very important that we try and score big and put them under pressure in the third innings.

    “It was frustrating (104 for last three wickets). That’s two games in a row when they’ve got a partnership at the end. But it shows that it’s a decent pitch and you can’t just blast people out. It also shows how well we bowled at their top order. We’re happy with today.

    “Since I broke my hand twice in a year, it’s been difficult to get three or four games in a row. But from Pudsy getting picked for England and a couple of injuries, I’ve got my way back in. To play three or four games in a row and a bit of rhythm, I’m bowling a lot better now. If I can chip in with a few runs as well, it would be great.

    “I’ve bowled well all year, and it’s pleasing that I’m doing it in the Championship form now.

    “To win a Championship, you need six or seven good seamers, and we’ve got that now. I knew my chance would come if I stayed patient. If I can take it now, I’ll make it hard for them to drop me.”

  • The Yorkshire all rounder was particular pleased for 18-year-old Karl Carver, who made his first-class debut today and did not look out of place taking his maiden Championship wicket getting dangerman Keith Barker caught by Aaron Finch,

    “He (Carver) has done well for someone of….how old is he,13? He has done well,” added Pyrah on Carver’s efforts with the ball.

    “He’s got a lovely action, and he looks like a proper spin bowler. He showed no signs of nerves and did a really good job for us. Hopefully that first wicket is one of many.”
