2nd XI: Yorkshire win by 48 runs

— 21 July 2015

In their penultimate game of 2015 in the one-day competition, Yorkshire beat Warwickshire by 48 runs at York with Glenn Maxwell (77) and Matthew Fisher (5/35) leading the way.


Warwickshire won the toss on a bright morning and, rather surprisingly, invited Yorkshire to take first use of the pitch.

The home side began well and had reached 141/2 in the 24th over when Dan Hodgson was dismissed. Glenn Maxwell had top-scored with 77 (53 deliveries; 13 fours and one six) but, from that high point, the wheels came off as the side subsided to 156/8 just 12 overs later.

It did not seem likely at that point that the full allocation of 50 overs would be used but the tail had other ideas as Karl Carver 39 (with eight boundaries) and Ben Coad (12*) aided by Jared Warner, added a further 58 invaluable runs and took the innings into the penultimate over.

A final total of 214 gave the bowlers something to bowl at and they tore into their opponents, quickly reducing them to 32/4 but Andrew Thomason, Tom Milnes and Peter McKay had other ideas and had brought their side back into contention with mixture of careful batting and, in the case of McKay, some tremendous leg-side clouts, before the return of Matt Fisher sealed the win.

He took 3/10 in 17 deliveries to wrap up the points, able assisted by the Steven Patterson-like figures of 8-2-16-2 by Ben Coad.

If seam had done it for Yorkshire, then spin had most definitely been Warwickshire`s major weapon as Josh Poysden and Ateeq Javid bowled their 20 overs for combined figures of 7/60 (five maidens) and hardly deserved to end up on the losing side.

Yorkshire next take on Warwickshire at Harrogate this morning at 11.00 am in the 3-day 2nd XI County Championship.
