Yorkshire continued their winning ways in One-Day cricket at York CC today by beating Warwickshire by 92 runs in a batting feast.
Yorkshire won the toss and batted first and enjoyed a rumbustious start thanks to Harry Brook (58 from 46 deliveries with 12 fours) and Jonathan Tattersall as 99 were added for the first wicket. This was followed by a second wicket partnership of 108 between Tattersall and Eliot Callis (55 from 57 deliveries with seven fours and two sixes).
So at 207/2 with 20 overs left, Yorkshire would have been thinking of something close to 400. Jonathan Tattersall led the way and was unlucky to miss out on his first Trophy century, falling for 98 (101 deliveries, 9 fours) and then Will Rhodes came and went quickly and a certain amount of momentum had been lost as the score slipped to 258/4 with just 12 overs remaining.
Enter Ryan Gibson to thump the ball as only he can, making 64 from just 49 deliveries (7 fours and one six). A total of 300 appeared and then 350 and finally 362/7. Wicketkeeper Ben Birkhead played a superb cameo, smiting three fours and one huge maximum to keep Gibson company.
Warwickshire began as if they seriously meant to chase the total down and Umeed and Banks added 104 for the first wicket. But Banks, Mellor, Umeed and Harrison were all dismissed in two overs and 104/0 had become 113/4.
Several Warwickshire later-order batsmen tried their best but all were dismissed in their forties and eventually, the visitors were dismissed 92 runs short of their target. Karl Carver had three wickets, and Shaw, Wainman and Gibson two each.
