2nd XI: Yorkshire v Nottinghamshire (Match Drawn)

— 27 August 2015

Play did not begin until 1.55pm as the ground had to dry out from yet more overnight rain. Some 60 overs remained and Yorkshire`s task was to bat out for an honourable raw.


Eliot Callis was caught behind early on but Mosun Hussain and Aaron Finch took the score to 55/1 before Mosun edged into the slips.

But that was the final success for the Nottinghamshire bowlers as Aaron Finch, after his first innings 60, went one better this time around and completed his century from 126 deliveries with nine boundaries and two sixes.

He ended on 104* and the unbroken third wicket partnership with Harry Brook had added 116 when a draw was agreed at 5.00 pm. This is, incidentally, the highest third wicket stand for the 2nd XI in the 2015 Championship.

Harry Brook, from the Burley-in-Wharfedale Club, is a slim right-hander who has made sores of 50, 19 and 36* in his first three 2nd XI innings. One to watch? Time, practice, hard work and a bit of luck where necessary will tell.
