Notts Fall To Defeat In First T20
Match Report | 14th June 2013
Nottinghamshire Second XI went down to a four-wicket defeat at the hands of Yorkshire in their first t20 game of the season.
Yorkshire won the toss and asked Nottinghamshire to bat first which looked to be the right decision as they were 20-2 in the fourth over.
Matt Cross (0) and Sam Wood (7) were the two wickets to fall but that brought Graeme White to the crease to accompany Sam Kelsall.
The pair shared a stand of 105 until Kelsall was run out by Gibson for 45 in the 17th over with the score at 125-4.
White was next to go for 45 in the following over with Adam Tillcock (5) and Tom Rowe (3) falling soon after.
At the end of their allotted overs, Notts had reached 149-6 mainly thanks to the work of White and Kelsall.
In reply, Yorkshire had reached 25 for the first wicket before Gibson was caught for 14 off the bowling of George Bacon.
Wilson was then run out for 7 by Rowe before in the sixth over Hodgson was caught by the same fielder for 18 off the bowling of Sam Wood.
Yorkshire were on 43-3 at that stage and the momentum was with Notts but Jack Leaning and captain Azeem Rafiq joined together in a 77-run partnership.
Bacon returned to remove Leaning (26) and then Rafiq (49) within three balls to leave the score on 121-5 and Notts with some hope.
However, Yorkshire only lost one more wicket in reaching their target that of Rhodes for 7 caught behind off Ben Kitt.
Randhawa hit the winning four to end on 18 and take the home side to 151-6 and a winning margin of four wickets. Bacon was the pick of the Notts bowlers with 3-14 off three overs.
