Shazad and Dalby Inspire Yorkshire

It is the game that relegation favourites Yorkshire have to win if the White Rose County is to have a shot at the title.  Yorkshire captain Andrew Gale put Notts in to bat on a green looking wicket and the Yorkshire bowlers soon found enough in the pitch to make life difficult for the home team.

Huddersfield lad Ajmal Shazad blew the Notts top order away with 4-21 and Halifax youngster Oliver Hannon-Dalby took the tail with 4-18, 18 year old Bradfordian Moin Ashraf completed Notts nightmare as they were skittled out for just 59, their lowest total for 22 years.

Yorkshire lost some early wickets, but the Captain played a Captain's innings on the opening day, moving steadily to a personal total of 147 n.o. he helped Yorkshire to 260-8 at close of play.  Yorkshire really couldn't have had a better opening day at Notts.

Over in the other match we have to keep an eye on, Lancashire made a steady 259, Somerset are 54-1 in reply, here's hoping for rain and a draw.
