LIVE BLOG: NOTTINGHAMSHIRE V YORKSHIRE, LVCC, DAY 4

— 24 September 2021

LIVE STREAM Here is the link for today’s action from Trent Bridge https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=673ByjJLkwI

2.49pm Just a quick update from Edgbaston, where Somerset are 85-6 after 35 overs against Warwickshire, who have 45 overs to claim four more wickets to pinch the title from under the noses of Lancashire.

So, that is it for the season in terms of Yorkshire action. Thanks for all your support this summer. Enjoy the winter and see you next summer. Take care all.

But we are not quite done yet because the Northern Diamonds are in action in tomorrow’s Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy final against Southern Vipers at Northampton.

Best of luck to them, and we will have full coverage across all the Diamonds channels tomorrow.

Andrew Gale said

“It’s just taken the gloss off what I would think has been a decent season – to be in the hunt two weeks ago to win the Championship and lose two in a row.
“If I’m being honest, I don’t think the lads were quite on it this week.
“The disappointment of the week before, we didn’t just want to turn up and go through the motions. But it felt like that at times.
“Again, first-innings batting, getting bowled out for 70. I said it at the start of the season, ‘When you play against the best teams, they’ll roll all over you’.
“We did what we usually do, fight back hard and give ourselves a chance, but it was just too late in the game.
“Give Notts credit, I thought they bowled better than us. I certainly thought 300 was well above par. I thought we should have bowled them out for 200-220. But it wasn’t a 70 all out pitch.
“One guy has got to scrap hard and make 60 or 70 and you have to make 160 or 170. To be rolled out for 70, it wasn’t good enough.”
“For us to have any chance of winning, we had to have a real strong first half hour today. If we could have got two or three wickets, we were right in the ball game.
“That catch cost us (Duke with Slater 19), but catching in the game did. Lythy dropped a couple in the first innings, which is uncharacteristic of him.”

1.36pm Notts have won by five wickets as Patterson-White hits the winning runs. Slater finishes 79 not out. That ends Yorkshire season with six wins and three defeats in the 14 Championship matches.

1.21pm WICKET Coad gets Moores caught at mid-wicket by Fraine. Smart catch going away to his left. 163-5. Notts need 11.

1.11pm Notts have moved to 153-4 in the early stages of the afternoon. They require 21 more.

Lunch Report Nottinghamshire are closing in on victory at Trent Bridge, needing 25 more runs.

The hosts, chasing 174 to end Yorkshire’s season with a defeat, have reached lunch on day four at 149-4 chasing 174.

They started the fourth day of this final round LV= Insurance County Championship fixture on 42-1, and Jordan Thompson, Dom Bess and Ben Coad have all claimed a wicket apiece during the morning.

Unfortunately, half-centuries for left-handers Ben Duckett and unbeaten Ben Slater have kept Notts on track for a win which may well qualify them for next week’s Bob Willis Trophy final by finishing second behind Lancashire.

Should Warwickshire fail to win the title by beating Somerset at Edgbaston, Notts would finish second in Division One and qualify for Lord’s.

Slater and Duckett completed a 98-run partnership for the second wicket this morning, both reaching their fifties in easing batting conditions.

Thompson forced Duckett to play on (107-2) before Bess had Joe Clarke caught at mid-off. And when Coad bowled opposing captain Steven Mullaney, Notts were 144-4 in the latter stages of the morning.

Slater will begin the afternoon on 64 with Tom Moores for company on one.

12.32pm Lunch. Notts have reached 149-4, needing 25 more to win. Wickets for Thompson, Bess and Coad in the morning. Slater has 64 and Moores 1.

12.17pm WICKET Mullaney is bowled by Coad for nine. Notts are 143-4.

12.03pm WICKET Clarke has skied Bess to mid-off, where Kohler-Cadmore takes the catch. Notts are 130-3, needing 44 more.

11.51am Slater reaches his fifty off 83 balls. Notts 112-2, needing 62 more.

11.43am WICKET Thompson gets Duckett for 54 via a chop on. Notts are 107-2, needing 67 more.

11.37am Warwickshire have set Somerset 273 in 79 overs at Edgbaston.

Here, Duckett has just reached his fifty off 80 balls with 7×4s as Bess comes into the attack to replace Hill. Notts 104-1, needing 70 more.

11.31am Hill and Thompson in tandem now as Notts move to within 75 of victory, at 99-1.

11.16am Notts are 86-1 in the 23rd over. Slater has overtaken Duckett (39) to move to 41. Thompson has just come into the attack in place of Coad.

10.55am Notts have advanced to 65-1, needing 109 more. Unfortunately for Yorkshire, defending a low total, you need chances like the Duke one 15 minutes or so ago to stick. Slater has moved to 30, Duckett 31.

10.41am Slater gets an early stay of execution as Duke, diving in front of first slip, can’t hold on off Fisher. Slater on 19. It’s 49-1.

10.18am Over at Edgbaston, where the Championship title will be decided one way or the other today, Warwickshire are 179-1 in their second innings with a lead of 157 over Somerset. Runs and then wickets are the order of the day for them. A win and they will leapfrog Lancashire to win their first title since 2012.

Good morning from Nottingham, where it is an overcast start to the final day of Yorkshire’s summer.

Victory is still on the cards, though there is no doubt Nottinghamshire are favourites at 42-1 chasing 174. A win for them could see qualification secured for next week’s Bob Willis Trophy final against Lancashire at Lord’s.

Should Warwickshire fail to beat Somerset at Edgbaston, a Notts victory would do it.

Ben Coad claimed the only wicket of the 11 overs Notts faced last night, with Adam Lyth admitting the White Rose “over-strived” for wickets.

Lyth was fantastic yesterday in completing 153, his third Championship century of the season, to give Yorkshire a sniff of a final week victory.

There has been some good news already for Yorkshire today, with Gary Ballance signing a new three-year all format contract and Adil Rashid signing on for the next two to play white ball only.

Let’s hope the day ends how it has started.

There will be a stream available once more. We get going at 10.30am. Enjoy the day.
