Notts 2nd XI vs Yorks 2nd XI: Day One Report

— 14 August 2018


Yorkshire won the toss and elected to field first.

Chris Gibson and Lyndon James added 26 before, with the first ball of the ninth over, Jared Warner had the former caught at first slip by Harry Brook for eight. Chris Nash came in at the fall of that wicket and was dropped at slip before going on to make 30 from 44 balls when the batsman fell lbw to James Wainman. This was the third wicket to fall after James was caught at third slip by Matthew Waite, also from Warner’s bowling.

Following the dismissal of Nash, Paul Coughlin came to the wicket and at lunch was 19 not out from 11 balls. Lunch was taken slightly early due to the dismissal of Will Fraine caught at mid-on by Wainman off Ed Barnes. At lunch Notts were 108-4 from 30.5 overs.

The afternoon session brought 255 runs from 41 overs with four wickets falling, however Yorkshire’s cause wasn’t helped by six dropped catches. Sol Budinger departed for nine and at 118-5, the White Rose were on top. The momentum had shifted slightly, however, with Notts putting on a sixth wicket partnership of 141 from only 111 balls.

Coughlin was the next to depart caught at deep mid-wicket by Karl Carver off Waite for 86 from 74 balls including 12 fours and two sixes – his partner in that stand, Luke Wood went on to make 92 from 77 balls (11×4; 3×6) before being caught behind off the bowling of Ed Barnes. At this point Notts were 317-7, and at tea, the hosts had added a further 46 without any further loss.

Skipper Jack Leaning brought himself in to the attack and struck in his first over to dismiss Liam Patterson-White for 50 from 65 balls with eight fours. Matthew Carter was then 23 not out from 43 balls but finished unbeaten on 53 from 84 balls. The final two wickets to fall were Matt Milnes caught behind off the first delivery with the new ball off James Wainman. Milnes made eight and last man Jack Blatherwick fell for 24 from 23 balls.

Barnes finished with 3-65 from 12, Warner 2-39 from 10 and Wainman 2-60 from 14. Notts were 432 all out from 85.4 overs, leaving the visitors with 16 overs to negotiate.

Harry Brook and Ben Birkhead negotiated those 16 overs to close on 70-0, scoring 41 from 48 balls and 25 from 48 balls respectively.
