Hussey, Franks and Adams Lead Turnaround
David Hussey, Andre Adams and Paul Franks transformed Nottinghamshire’s fortunes with commanding knocks against Yorkshire.
Hussey finally perished on 189, caught by Joe Sayers at long-on having struck 26 fours and 7 sixes.
His partnership with Franks yielded 147 runs for the seventh wicket and after his dismissal, Andre Adams continued to score at pace, reaching 84 off 57 balls before edging to Brophy to end the innings.
By the close, Yorkshire had reached 25-2 in reply to the Nottinghamshire total of 395.
“At the start of play I thought that 300 would be a realistic target but David Hussey was outstanding and we’re very lucky to have him in our team at the moment,” said Newell.
“Paul Franks allows us to build partnerships down the order because he plays patiently and he took the pressure off Hussey at times by accepting the strike and building a useful innings for us.
“We saw the best of Andre as well because he played steadily whilst he was with Huss and then opened up later on.”
The home side, winless in the LV County Championship this season, lost two wickets before the close with Sidebottom trapping Rudolph lbw before Adams bowled McGrath in his final over.
