Rookie Oliver to Tykes' Rescue; COUNTY CRICKET

Article excerpt

A CAREER-best intervention by Yorkshire's towering rookie Oliver Hannon-Dalby reined back a Warwickshire recovery in a gripping LV County Championship match at Edgbaston.

The 6ft 8in pace bowler from Halifax removed England batsman Jonathan Trott for 88 and took 4-19 in 29 balls before Jim Troughton re-ignited the home side.

Left hander Troughton made 78 as Warwickshire -trailing by 57 after the first innings -reached 347 and set Yorkshire a target of 291 on a pitch that has given bowlers some encouragement throughout.

The game could have drifted away from the visitors as they put down three chances, two of these from Troughton in successive overs from Hannon-Dalby.

The lapses by Anthony McGrath -bumping into Tim Bresnan as they chased after a top edge -and wicketkeeper Jonathan Bairstow allowed Troughton to put on 64 with Naqaash Tahir for the eighth wicket.

They scored at nearly five runs an over until Steve Patterson bowled Troughton for the first of two wickets in five balls. Hannon-Dalby then came back to finish off the innings with five for 68 when Naqaash was pinned leg-before after making 34.

In 19 overs before the close, Adam Lyth gave Yorkshire a solid platform with an unbeaten 34 as they made 57 for one and reduced their requirement to 234. Joe Sayers was the man out, caught behind off Naqaash for 12.

Middlesex plunged to a 111-run defeat following another batting failure by Andrew Strauss against Worcestershire at New Road. The England captain fell for 15 after making a single in his first innings.
