LIVE BLOG: NOTTINGHAMSHIRE v YORKSHIRE, BWT, D1

— 8 August 2020

Harry Brook reaction

“We turned it around there after losing a few quick wickets early on.

“It’s always nice to get some runs and contribute, but Tommo was quality there to get us to a respectable total and one we can bowl to.

“We came off at lunch and said we’d be happy with 250 if we can get there. And we did in the end.

“Hats off to Tommo and a few of the other lads who were able to build some partnerships that got us there.

“It’s quite a slow pitch, and there’s quite a bit of rough outside the off-stump for a right-hander. Hopefully we can use that to our advantage with Shutty a bit further down the line.

“It’s quite slow, but at the end Duanne was getting it through quite a bit. It will be interesting to see what happens in the morning.”

6.37pm England have won the first Test by three wickets. Joe Buttler 75 and Chris Woakes 84 not out. Joe Root’s side recover from 117-5 chasing 277. And that was all after conceding a first-innings lead of 107. Excellent.

6.02pm – Close Nash gone! Patterson claims a wicket with the third ball of the day’s last over. He’s bowled Nash, and that’s close. Notts 13-1 from 7.3 overs in reply to 264. Thompson brilliant with a career best 98.

5.53pm We are in the closing stages of the day, and Notts are 12-0 in the sixth over. We will get one or two more overs in tonight. Patterson and Olivier have shared the new ball. Wonder if Shutt gets an over?

5.20pm Thompson gone! Oh no. He’s tried to clear the stands and has edged Nash to slip, falling for 98. Yorkshire 264 all out. Brilliant innings from Thompson and brilliant recovery from 44-4.

Notts will have to lift themselves now for the final half hour of play after what was a pretty chastening afternoon and evening for them. Make no mistake, Yorkshire’s position is by no means a winning one, but it’s certainly a useful one.

5.07pm Thompson takes Patel for 20 runs in the over, moving to 86 – to sixes and two fours. 252-9 – second batting point as well.

4.59pm Shutt follows quickly. He’s been trapped lbw for nought by Carter. 232-9.

4.55pm Olivier gone! He’s been trapped lbw by Patel for 5. Yorkshire 231-8 in the 76th over.

4.34pm Patterson edges Nash to Mullaney at slip, falling for 11. 218-7 now.

4.27pm Thompson slashes Chappell in between slip and gully to reach an extremely valuable 70-ball fifty – his first in first-class cricket and second in the first team. Yorkshire now 210-6 in the 70th over. Slowly but surely Notts are coming under significant pressure.

4.06pm Thompson hammers a Patel full toss beyond short mid-wicket for four and then picks up a couple of twos, the latter bursting through hands of Mullaney – catchable height – at slip. He has 34 of 186-6 in the 64th – the first of the evening. If Yorkshire can get up to 250, it may prove very useful as this game progresses.

Tea Report Harry Brook led a useful Yorkshire recovery during the opening afternoon of their Bob Willis Trophy clash with Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge before falling in the last over of the session.

The former England under 19s captain built on scores of 41 and 66 not out in last weekend’s win at Durham, with his 62 helping Yorkshire advance from 67-4 from 29 overs at lunch to 177-6 from 63 at tea.

Brook shared a crucial fifth-wicket partnership of 92 inside 31 overs with Jonny Tattersall, who was the first afternoon wicket to fall when lbw for 31 sweeping at Samit Patel’s left-arm spin.

That left Yorkshire at 136-5 in the 50th over.

Brook raced out of the blocks after lunch, hitting six fours in the first 15 minutes of the session, including a sumptuous on-driven four against seamer Zak Chappell.

Having brought up an 88-ball fifty, he then shimmied down the pitch and launched Patel for six into the seats in front of the pavilion.

He shared 40 for the sixth wicket with Jordan Thompson (26 not out) before falling to the part-time off-spin of Chris Nash with the first ball of the afternoon’s final over.
Bowled through the gate, that left Yorkshire at 176-6.

Steve Patterson will begin the evening on one alongside Thompson.

3.43pm – Tea Yorkshire suffer a late blow with the dismissal of Brook for 62, but otherwise a very useful session. 67-4 from 29 overs to 177-6 from 63. Thompson 26 and Patterson 1.

3.39pm Brook gone! He’s been bowled by Nash, who has just come into the attack. Bowled through the gate for 62. Yorkshire 176-6 on the verge of tea.

3.23pm In the Test at Old Trafford, England are 117-5 chasing 277. Buttler and Woakes at the crease. Tall order you’d feel from there.

3.07pm That’s an 88-ball fifty for Brook with nine fours. Now two fifties in three innings added to a 41 for him so far this season. YorkshireCCC 139-5 in the 53rd.

2.56pm Tattersall has been trapped lbw by Patel on the sweep, 31. Yorkshire 136-5. That’s ended a fine stand of 92 with Brook, who has 48.

2.55pm A reminder, you can watch this partnership unfold over on our match centre page.

2.47pm Yorkshire are 130-4 after 47 overs as the players wander over to the edge of the field for a drink and a hand sanitiser break. Brook has 43 and Tattersall 30. Their crucial partnership is 86 and counting.

2.19pm In the 40 or so minutes after lunch, Yorkshire have advanced in pretty serene fashion from 69-4 to 122-4. Brook has 39 and is continuing on from his form at Durham. Tattersall has 26.

1.52pm Brook gloriously on-drives Chappell for his fourth boundary of the afternoon, and we haven’t yet finished the third over. He moves to 21 out of 87-4 in the 32nd.

Lunch report Yorkshire have lost four wickets during a difficult opening morning against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.

Winners last week in the opening round of the Bob Willis Trophy against Durham, White Rose captain Steve Patterson won the toss here and elected to bat before seeing his side reach lunch on 67-4 from 29 overs.

Jonny Bairstow was caught at point for five off ex-Leicestershire seamer Zak Chappell. The England wicketkeeper batsman is batting at three in this game and will also face Derbyshire at Emerald Headingley next weekend.

Yorkshire are handing a first-team debut to 19-year-old seamer Dom Leech on a pitch used for last weekend’s Notts v Derbyshire clash.

Adam Lyth was first to go when he was trapped lbw by a Jake Ball in-swinger, leaving the visitors at 6-1 in the third over.

Bairstow then took 18 balls to get off the mark before driving Chappell for his only boundary. He was dismissed following a fierce cut and a head high catch by Samit Patel (23-2 in the 12th).

Dawid Malan (9) was next to go, caught behind off Chappell as Yorkshire fell to 33-3 in the 14th before Tom Kohler-Cadmore, the top-scorer so far with 21, was the fourth victim.

He was caught by Notts captain Steven Mullaney running around behind wicketkeeper Tom Moores from slip after Kohler-Cadmore had gloved a sweep at Matt Carter’s off-spinners.

Jonny Tattersall has 13 and Harry Brook five.

1.01pm – Lunch: Yorkshire reach the break on 67-4 from 29 overs, losing Lyth, Bairstow, Malan and Kohler-Cadmore. Brook has 5 and Tattersall 13.

12.31pm Kohler-Cadmore gone! He’s been caught by Mullaney running around behind the keeper from slip. Carter the bowler. Attempted sweep seemed to flick off pad and then glove. Gone for 21. Yorkshire 44-4 in the 20th.

12.05pm Oh no. Malan has gone as well. He’s been caught behind off Chappell for 9. Yorkshire in a bit of bother at 33-3.

12.02pm Malan has driven two boundaries off Chappell and now Mullaney. He has 9 out of 32-2 in the 13th.

11.54am Bairstow gone! He’s been caught at backward point by Patel off Chappell for five. Yorkshire 23-2 in the 12th.

11.23am England require 277 to win the opening Test against Pakistan at Old Trafford. They have wrapped up Pakistan’s second innings for 169 inside the first half hour of day four.

11.13am Early strike for Notts, who break through courtesy of Ball. He’s trapped Lyth lbw for 4, and Yorkshire are 6-1 in the third over. Bairstow strides to the crease.

10.55am This match will be streamed on our match centre page on the website.

10.37am TOSS: Yorkshire have won it and will bat first.

Good morning from Trent Bridge, where we are greeted by glorious sunshine. The ground looks a picture, and we will be playing this Bob Willis Trophy North Group fixture against Nottinghamshire on a used pitch.

While Yorkshire got their North Group campaign off to a flying start against Durham last weekend, Derbyshire were victorious against Notts on the same surface being used for this fixture.

There will be a number of changes to Yorkshire’s team following injury and availability. Ben Coad and Matthew Fisher (side and abdominal strains) are injured, while Duanne Olivier and Jonny Bairstow are available again.

Dom Leech, Mat Pillans and Jared Warner are all in the squad, while I can spy Josh Poysden out there as well.

We begin at 11am, and the toss takes place shortly.
