Report: Yorkshire 2nd XI vs SACA (Day Three)

— 27 April 2022


The final day began under a leaden sky with our visitors requiring a further 152 for victory with 8 wickets remaining.

A recall to Headingley for one player and illness for another meant an unlikely Yorkshire debut for Coach Tom Smith who showed all his experience by managing to avoid fielding a ball throughout the session.

Jack Shutt resumed and in his second over of the day removed Umeed, bowled for 8; with the score on 19-3. This quickly became 24-5 and all five falling to Shutt who was registering his second “five for” of the season.

Mosun Hussain made a run a ball 23 but was stumped to become Shutts sixth victim, 49-6 and keeper, Wijesurya joined Ul-Hassan. They added 31 in 26 balls when the latter was bowled, reverse sweeping for 15 (80-7).

Harry Sullivan had Rizvi lbw for eight and shortly after Wijesurya fell in the same fashion for 41 from only 30 balls leaving them 111-9.

Local player, Mohammed Bilal who plays just down the road at Woodlands struck some mighty blows as he made 19 from 13 balls but it was Harry Sullivan who wrapped up victory by having Phagura caught at cover by Will Fraine as Yorkshire won by 27 runs but it was undoubtedly Jack Shutts day as he registered career best figures of 15-3-69-8 and 10 wickets in the game.

The next Second Eleven action starts Monday 2nd May at North Marine Road, Scarborough with a four day Championship game against Lancashire.
