On a day when caps went as far as some shots due to the strong winds honours were shared as each County won a game to leave Yorkshire top of the Group with 1 game remaining – at Sheffield Collegiate v Derbyshire on Tuesday 9th July 3 pm start.

The day started with access problems for the scorers (sorted fairly quickly) but things didn’t improve greatly as problems with the windows misting up meant that our view was limited and then in the afternoon a lengthy loss of power in the building meant that the scoreboard couldn’t be updated leading to end of over “walkie talkie” conversations with Umpires to update everyone.

Game 1

Notts won the toss and elected to bowl – Fin Bean was dismissed in the 1st over with Yash balls before the latter was caught at deep mid wicket for 25 from 19 balls (2×4;2×6).

Kelly made a run a ball 26 and Joe Thompson a similar 25 however wickets fell regularly and with 3 overs remaining we were 106-7. Jack Redshaw made 22 from only 16 balls with a four and a six but Ben Cliff (11 no) and Dom Leech 19 no took the total to 136 -7.

Notts had reached 38 in the 5th over before losing a wicket, Holland for 9. Seecheran also made 9 and Schadendorf 10 however King won the game almost single handedly as he made 96 no from 51 balls with 12 fours to win the game by 7 wickets with 18 balls to spare.

Game 2

The visitors again won the toss and asked Yorkshire to bat first – 3 changes for us: out Malan, Bean and Leech replaced by Masood, Bess and Hoyle.

However, we found ourselves again losing early wickets 15-2 in the 3rd over. Dom Bess made 20 from 15 before being run out by a direct hit and Shan Masood 43 from 42 as we reached 94-6 with 5 overs left. Cliff again finished not out on 18 from 11 but it was Jack Redshaw who provided the impetus with 33 from 17 balls with 5 fours and a six as we closed on 146-8.

King was trapped lbw for 5 by Cliff and Seecheran caught at mid off by Masood in Hen-Boisens 1st over, 38-2 in the 5th over. This became 51-7 mainly due to a superb spell from Josh Hen-Boisen who took 4-5 in his first 11 deliveries and finished with 5-17 from his 3.5 overs.

Thanks to my predecessor, Howard Clayton who provided the information – Josh is only the 3rd YCCC bowler in 2nd X1 T20s to take 5 in an innings after Karl Carver and Jack Leaning but todays are the best ever figures.

Notts were all out for 99 with former YCCC player, Tom Loten carrying his bat for 38 not out – again thanks to Howard, the first time in 2nd X1 T20s that anyone has “carried their bat”.

Yorkshire win by 47 runs.
