Report: Nottinghamshire v Warwickshire, LV= Insurance County Championship

Day Four

Tim Bresnan led the way as Warwickshire pulled off a stunning victory on the final day of their LV= Insurance County Championship match at Trent Bridge.

The 36-year-old Yorkshireman finished unbeaten on 68, sharing a stand of 113 with England fast bowler Olly Stone as Warwickshire chased down a target of 333 to win by three wickets despite England opener Dominic Sibley being unable to bat because of a broken finger.

Bresnan had an escape on 56 when Nottinghamshire wicketkeeper Tom Moores put down a difficult chance off Stuart Broad but had earned his luck and his eight boundaries, completing the victory by running two to backward point off Dane Paterson with 8.1 overs to spare.

The result was particularly frustrating for Paterson, Nottinghamshire’s debutant overseas player. The South African seamer looked to have swung the match his new team’s way when he took three wickets in 17 balls shortly after lunch.

By dismissing Sam Hain and Matt Lamb after both had made fifties, Paterson seemed to have removed Warwickshire’s best hopes of emerging with a victory.


But Bresnan and Stone, who made his second highest first-class score to go with five wickets in the match, inflicted more pain on the home side and though Stone was out for 43 with 36 still needed and Broad giving his full commitment to the cause, Danny Briggs held his nerve to help Bresnan complete the job.

Nottinghamshire had been ahead in the match since midway through the opening day and felt they were in pole position to end their drought when a wicket in the last over of the third day left Warwickshire 85 for three, still 247 runs behind.

But Hain and Lamb frustrated their hopes of making more inroads by batting through the morning session, Hain surviving a barrage of short deliveries from Broad, who hit him on the back and on the helmet in a ferocious three-over burst just before lunch.

The fourth-wicket pair added 89, Hain building a patient fifty off 117 balls with six fours, Lamb completing his off 111 with seven fours.  

The picture changed when Patterson replaced Broad at the pavilion end after lunch, the skiddy right-arm seamer removing Hain with his fourth delivery, edged low to wicketkeeper Tom Moores, then sending Lamb’s off-stump flying and uprooting Michael Burgess’s leg stump in what felt like a decisive spell.

But though Broad, who bowled 20 overs on the final day and 49 in the match, removed Stone, who edged a drive to Moores, with the second new ball soon after hitting his England teammate on the elbow, it was Nottinghamshire’s only subsequent success on a deeply disappointing day for them as Bresnan remained defiant.


Day Three

Warwickshire need a further 248 runs to inflict more misery on Nottinghamshire on the final day of an evenly poised LV= Insurance County Championship match, although the likely absence of injured England opener Dom Sibley may tip the balance in the home side’s favour.

Chasing 333 to win from a minimum 130 overs, they lost Rob Yates – opening in the place of Sibley – leg before to Stuart Broad with one that kept a touch low and Indian Test batsman Hanuma Vihari, whose off-stump was sent cartwheeling by a pacy all-rounder Lyndon James, to be 34 for two.

Skipper Will Rhodes and Sam Hain added 51 but the loss of Rhodes, trapped on the crease by left-arm spinner Liam Patterson-White as Nottinghamshire seek to end a winless run in first-class cricket that stretches back almost three years, may be a key moment.

Warwickshire set up their target by bowling out Nottinghamshire for 260, left-arm spinner Danny Briggs taking four for 68 and England pace bowler Olly Stone three for 66.

England opener Sibley, nursing a fractured finger suffered on the opening day here, is unlikely to play any part on the final day, although an emergency appearance has not been ruled out. 

Nottinghamshire had looked well placed at 128 for two overnight, with a lead of 200, but began the day by losing both Haseeb Hameed and Joe Clarke before either could add substantially to the half-centuries they carried forward. Hameed edged Rhodes to wicketkeeper Michael Burgess before Stone removed Clarke in similar fashion.

James and Steven Mullaney cautiously added 57 for the fifth wicket before Stone thudded a fast, straight ball into James’s pads, but then Warwickshire claimed five wickets for 23 runs – three of them in the space of four deliveries to Briggs – to leave the home side nine down before the mid-afternoon pause for the Royal funeral.

Mullaney and Tom Moores took turns to hammer sixes back over the spinner’s head. But Mullaney slapped the fifth ball of the next over straight to point, Liam Patterson-White was bowled by the sixth and, after Broad hurried through for a single after surviving the hat-trick ball at the start of his next over, Briggs bowled Moores off an inside edge.

Broad departed soon afterwards, edging Olly Hannon-Dalby to second slip.

Zak Chappell and Dane Paterson added 39 for the last wicket as Paterson thrashed five boundaries – five of them in an entertaining duel with Stone – before skewing one in the air to become a fourth victim for Briggs.

It swelled the Nottinghamshire total to 260 to leave a difficult target on a wicket showing signs of deterioration but Warwickshire had more time on their side than they might have anticipated.


Day Two

Nottinghamshire built on a handy first-innings lead to put themselves in a strong position after day two of their LV= Insurance County Championship match against Warwickshire as they seek a first win in first-class cricket since June 2018.

Joe Clarke, who made a century in each innings when these sides last met in 2019, looked in ominous form and both he and Haseeb Hameed posted half-centuries as they built on a 72-run advantage to stretch Nottinghamshire’s lead to exactly 200.

Earlier, Warwickshire confirmed that England opener Dom Sibley suffered a small fracture to the second finger of his right hand when he put down a catch at first slip on Thursday and in his absence they were all out for 201.

Stuart Broad and debutant overseas player Dane Paterson finished with three wickets each, while left-arm spinner Liam Patterson-White followed his fine unbeaten 73 on the opening day with the pivotal wicket of Sam Hain for 72.

Hain’s eight boundaries included a couple of wristy leg-side fours off Paterson and two punched handsomely through the off side off Zak Chappell and his stand with nightwatchman Danny Briggs added 83 for the fourth wicket after Will Rhodes had edged behind from Broad’s second ball of the morning. 

Briggs was reprieved by a no ball when caught and bowled by Paterson on 19, dropped at first slip in the same over and then by wicketkeeper Tom Moores off Steven Mullaney on 28, but ran out of luck three balls after lunch as Broad pinned him in front working to leg.

It was the England fast bowler’s 150th first-class wicket for Nottinghamshire, Moores having made Rhodes his 100th first-class dismissal. 

Bowling changes brought the next two wickets. Matt Lamb edged a drive to second slip as Lyndon James struck with his first ball before the introduction of Patterson-White paid the biggest dividend as Hain, stepping forward to defend, was hit on the front pad.

Michael Burgess and Tim Bresnan dug in, adding 23 in 11 overs to reach tea at 199 for six before Paterson’s forbearance was rewarded with the last three Warwickshire wickets in the space of six deliveries, Bresnan ballooning a catch to gully off the shoulder to give the South African seamer his first Nottinghamshire wicket before Burgess and Olly Hannon-Dalby both went leg before.

Ben Slater fell cheaply to England’s Olly Stone for the second time in the match as Nottinghamshire began their second innings but Hameed’s 52-run stand with Ben Duckett for the second wicket, which ended when Rhodes trapped Duckett in front, gave Clarke a platform and he reeled off eight boundaries in reaching 50 off 67 balls.


Day One

A career-best unbeaten 73 by all-rounder Liam Patterson-White led a Nottinghamshire recovery from 119 for six to 273 all out on the opening day of their LV= Insurance County Championship match against Warwickshire, who were 24 for two at the close. 

Patterson-White, a 22-year-old left-arm spinner playing only his seventh first-class match, batted for three hours and eight minutes and hit 12 boundaries, striking the ball cleanly on both sides of the wicket.

Skipper Will Rhodes, fourth seamer in the absence of the injured Liam Norwell, was the most successful Warwickshire bowler with four for 53. 

With England’s Dom Sibley not taking his usual place at the top of the order, Warwickshire hoped to survive the 10 overs they faced at the end of the day but instead lost Rob Yates and debutant Indian Test batsman Hanuma Vihari without scoring, the latter a victim for England paceman Stuart Broad on his return to county action.

Zak Chappell removed Rob Yates with the help of a fine, diving catch by Tom Moores behind the stumps, before Broad had Vihari taken low down at third slip by Haseeb Hameed.

Olly Stone, who made his Test debut in India in the winter, earlier took two wickets from five sharp spells on his return to county action. 

Stone struck in his fourth over to have Ben Slater caught at second slip at the second attempt by Sam Hain as Nottinghamshire endured a difficult morning. Hameed, dropped on two, chipped a Rhodes full toss straight to extra cover before Tim Bresnan brought one back to have left-hander Ben Duckett leg before.  Rhodes then brilliantly ran out Lyndon James at the non-striker’s end with a direct hit from mid-off leaving the home side 63 for four. 

Steven Mullaney, dropped by Sibley at first slip on 26, was caught athletically one-handed by Vihari at square leg off Rhodes for 31, before Joe Clarke, tempted by some width from Stone, was caught behind off a top edge for 29.

Moores, who had an escape on six, was bowled off stump by Rhodes for 31 after he and Patterson-White added 63 for the seventh wicket, including a five-run penalty when a ball from spinner Danny Briggs struck a fielding helmet behind the stumps. 

After Broad hit 21 off 19 balls before becoming Rhodes’s fourth victim, edging to first slip, Patterson-White shrugged off blows to the body by Stone and the head by Bresnan to share another 63-stand for the ninth wicket with Chappell before Bresnan wrapped up the innings by dismissing both Chappell and debutant South Africa bowler Dane Paterson for three for 48.

Preview: Nottinghamshire v Warwickshire, LV= Insurance County Championship

Hanuma Vihari is in contention for his Warwickshire debut against Nottinghamshire tomorrow after emerging from quarantine and having his first net with the Bears this morning.

The India Test batsman is in a 13-man squad named by Bears first-team coach Mark Robinson for the LV=Insurance County Championship tussle at Trent Bridge.

The 11 which had the better of a rain and snow-affected draw with Derbyshire are joined in the squad by Vihari and England paceman Olly Stone.

Vihari brings to the squad the experience of 12 Tests and the quality which has earned a first class batting average of 56. Virat Kohli once observed that India’s dressing room always feels calm when Vihari is batting because he is so correct in his approach – that is the sort of impact the Bears will be looking for from the 27-year-old.

“Vihari netted well this morning,” said Robinson. “He was happy and chatty and said he felt good so he will be with us in at Trent Bridge.

“He is an attractive batsman to watch and a quality player and you always look to that sort of player to have an effect, on and off the field, so it’s really good to have him on board.”

Mark Robinson

Vihari joins a squad which will strive to get the season going in earnest at Trent Bridge after a staccato opener against Derbyshire when, every time an intriguing contest appeared nigh, the weather intervened. The Bears had to settle for a draw from a match in which they long had the upper hand

“When you get a good opportunity to win a game you are always a little bit frustrated not to make it count,” said Robinson. “But the weather took a lot of time out of the game and, credit to Derbyshire, they fought hard. It was mirrored round the country where there were a lot of middle and lower order fightbacks.

“We have just got to concentrate on ourselves and I am learning about the team and learning about the players as individuals. Can they back up performances? Can they back up spells? Can they be ruthless in key moments?”

The Bears showed all those merits on their most recent championship visit to Trent Bridge, in September 2019. After Nottinghamshire closed the first day on 425 for six, the Bears fought back brilliantly to win by eight wickets after tea on the final day.

Dom Sibley, who scored 324 runs in the game, recalls it as a “special” match.

“That was my first four-day game at Trent Bridge and to fight back from the position we were in and win the game was pretty special,” he said.

“It will be good to go back there this week. I have a couple of good mates who play for Notts so it always a nice place to go and a nice place to bat.

Dom Sibley

“Rhodesy and I will be trying to set out stall out and put down a solid platform for the boys, like we did in that game in 2019, and hopefully score big runs.”

Championship Rewind: Nottinghamshire v Warwickshire, 2019

Dom Sibley will return to the scene of some very happy memories when Warwickshire travel to Nottinghamshire in the LV= Insurance County Championship on Thursday.

The Bears’ will visit Trent Bridge where, in 2019, they recorded one of the great fightback wins in the club’s history – thanks largely to 324 runs (567 balls, 716 minutes, 40 fours) from Sibley.

When Nottinghamshire closed the first day on 425 for six it was, to say the least, a case of ‘good game to win’ for the Bears. But win it they did.

They replied to Notts’ 498  with 488, Sibley batting through the innings for 215 (420 balls, 531 minutes, 30 fours). Olly Hannon-Dalby, Jeetan Patel and George Garrett then shared nine wickets to bowl the home side out for 260 second time around – and the Bears knocked off 271 for two in 55.2 overs, Sibley adding 109 (147 balls, ten fours) to secure an eight-wicket win.

It was a superb team effort, crowned by the excellence of Sibley in a performance which inked his name into England’s winter tour party and accelerated his pathway into Test cricket.

“It was my first four-day game at Trent Bridge and to fight back from the position we were in to win the game was pretty special,” he recalls. “We went round the park on the first morning and I remember thinking how quick the outfield was and how good it was for batting. Steven Mullaney was on 98 after the first session and there were some stern words at lunchtime!

“After a first day like that, you are just thinking ‘let’s try and draw the game,’ but we dug in with the bat and then the bowlers did really well in the third innings, which is so often crucial, and suddenly we were right back in the game. The guys bowled well again on the fourth morning and we managed to chase it down.

Dom Sibley

“In the first innings, I just set my stall out and tried to give the boys someone to bat around, but the second innings is probably one of my favourite innings I have ever played. It was in a chase and showed I can score at a quicker tempo when I need to.

“I was seeing it nicely, coming off the back of a double ton in the first innings, and we went into tea on the last day about 70 for none. Then Will Rhodes hit a couple of sixes and suddenly we were ahead of the game and it was just a question of maintaining it. We just ticked it over nicely.

“Michael Burgess came in and hit a few big blows and then Matt Lamb came in and finished it off with a red-inker. He was a bit unlucky, actually – he was credited with one not out even though it hit a glorious four to win the game!

“I was a bit disappointed that I didn’t see the boys over the line but by that stage I was pretty tired – I’d been on the field all game. It will always be a special memory for me, not just because I scored runs, but because it was such an amazing win for Warwickshire.”
