Head Coach Peter Moores has described the first day of Nottinghamshire’s two-day pre-season friendly match with Yorkshire in Potchefstroom as a ‘good workout.’
The White Rose County batted through the day to score 305-6, led by a knock of 154 not out from 210 balls by Harry Brook, after which he retired.
Luke Wood, Harry Gurney and Ben Kitt had claimed a wicket each as Yorkshire were reduced to 80-3 at the Witrand Cricket Field.
However, Brook scored freely along with Tim Bresnan (37) to help the fightback before Matthew Waite (26 not out) and Jonny Tattersall (25 not out) saw things through to the close.
Spinners Matt Carter and Connor Marshall also claimed a wicket each while Mark Footitt effected a run out.
“The scores do not matter… it was just a question of getting some match practice in at this stage.”
“It was a decent day for us where everyone got a good workout and the bowlers got miles in the legs,” said Moores.
“Harry Gurney and Luke Wood were probably the pick of the bowlers on what was a pretty flat pitch and it was hard work for everyone.
“But the scores do not matter… it was just a question of getting some match practice in at this stage.
“I’m really pleased with how things have gone on tour as a whole and the facilities we have been able to use have been excellent.”
As the game continues tomorrow (Tuesday), Nottinghamshire are expected to bat.
