One-Day Cup Report: Warwickshire v Yorkshire Vikings

A wonderful match came down to the final ball with former Bears spinner Josh Poysden needing to find two runs to secure the Vikings victory.

He swished and missed – but the batsmen scrambled a bye to bring the scores level.

It was a pulsating match in which Warwickshire amassed 270 for eight, a solid total but one which appeared no more than par on a good batting pitch. Tim Ambrose provided their backbone with a well-worked 77 (108 balls, five fours) but without Adam Hose (hand-injury sustained in the nets the day before the game) and Ian Bell (foot injury), in the top order, too many others in the top order got in then got out.

It looked a very good total after Henry Brookes and Chris Woakes reduced Yorkshire to 33 for four. A superb sixth-wicket partnership of 138 in 24 overs between Tim Bresnan (89, 88 balls, eight fours, two sixes) and Jonny Tattersall (79, 81 balls, seven fours) then kept their side alive before a game which fluctuated fascinatingly all day – a tribute to the format – finished all square. Fifty-over cricket was the winner.

Warwickshire, put in, lost Ed Pollock to the 11th ball when Bresnan rattled his off-stump. Bresnan then removed the other opener Dom Sibley (26, 25 balls), caught by wicketkeeper Tattersall.

A fine spell of 7-0-17-0 from captain Steve Patterson kept a brake on the scoring before Adil Rashid removed Sam Hain (40, 55 balls, three fours), stumped by Tattersall.

While Ambrose settled, Will Rhodes moved fluently to 43 (49 balls, six fours, one six) against his former county before tickling a leg-side offering from Mathew Pillans to the wicketkeeper.

Nineteen-year-old Liam Banks, on his List A debut, made a punchy 31 (28 balls) but when he and Woakes hoisted Poysden to long off in quick succession, the innings lost momentum when it needed to be gathering it. Ambrose’s 24th List A half-century was ended by a catch at deep mid-wicket and Yorkshire, who had piled up 379 in their North Group opener two days earlier, could reflect on a decent job done.

They were less happy when they hit 33 for four in the 11th over. Brookes hit the stumps of Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Adam Lyth and Woakes had Harry Brook caught in the gully and the in-form Gary Ballance taken at cover.
David Willey (40, 57 balls, seven fours) and Tattersall added 56 in 11 overs before Willey spliced a pull at young seamer George Panayi to mid on.

That was 89 for five but Tattersall and Bresnan both advanced to 56-ball half-centuries to take their side into the last ten overs with 80 required. The sixth-wicket pair brought the chase down to 44 needed from five when both fell in three balls, Tattersall bowled by Patel and Bresnan caught by Patel at cover off Woakes.

It came down to ten needed from the last over, delivered by Brookes and when Patterson swiped the second ball for four, suddenly the Vikings were favourites again. With three needed from three balls, Pillans holed out to mid-off, but the batsmen crossed, leaving Patterson on strike. A single brought Poysden down to face his first ball against his former club – and a bye meant a fine match concluded in a tie.

One-Day Cup Preview: Warwickshire v Yorkshire Vikings

The Bears open their RL Cup North Group programme with a mouth-watering home clash against Yorkshire tomorrow (11am).

Chris Woakes returns for the Bears while the White Rose will have their England players, including Joe Root, available.

It is a testing start for Troughton’s men who were very unfortunate not to qualify for the knockout phase of the tournament last year, having lost only two of their eight group games.

On a decent wicket you want to be getting 300 as a benchmark so we just have to keep challenging our batters. Last year the challenge was that their stats were good but we had to get the strike-rates up and they did that.

Jim Troughton

They won four but finished fourth, one place below the qualification line, due to having had two games washed out (they were the only team in the group to lose two to the weather).

“We played some really good 50-over cricket last year,” Troughton said. “I have played in and coached one-day trophy-winning Bears teams where we managed to get through the knockout stage without playing the greatest cricket, but last year I thought we played some really good stuff and were very unlucky.

“We ended up in a situation where we went into the last game knowing if we won we had a home semi and if we lost we were out – and we got Moeen Ali-ed!

“That was frustrating, but we know that this year it could get very exciting if we can build on last year and repeat the stuff we did really well. Our top five batted really well. The challenge for our bowlers is to find that cutting edge without Olly Stone but it is great that we will have Chris Woakes for at least a couple of games.”

Those bowlers will, as is the case the world over in the modern era, find batsmen coming at them hard as scoring-rates continue to climb in white-ball cricket.

“These days six an over is a given, really,” Troughton said. “On a decent wicket you want to be getting 300 as a benchmark so we just have to keep challenging our batters. Last year the challenge was that their stats were good but we had to get the strike-rates up and they did that. The bowlers also improved their wicket-taking strike-rates and that remains their challenge because if you are aggressive with the ball and taking wickets consistently in one-day cricket then you can give yourself reasonable targets.

“We’re really looking forward to the Royal London Cup campaign and Yorkshire will be a great test to start with. They will have David Willey, Joe Root and Adil Rashid and are a strong unit, as they were last year when we beat them up at Headingley.”

SQUAD: Patel, Ambrose, Banks, Brookes, Hain, Hannon-Dalby, Lamb Panayi, Pollock, Rhodes, Sibley, Thomson, Woakes.
