Bresnan lifts Phoenix
Twenty20 Cup, Headingley: Yorkshire 196-5 (20 overs) beat Nottinghamshire 178 all out (18.1 overs) by 18 runs

Tim Bresnan's three wickets in an over proved the difference as Yorkshire completed an 18-run Twenty20 Cup victory over Nottinghamshire.

But the Phoenix' slim hopes of progressing to the semi-finals were dashed as Warwickshire grabbed the best runners-up spot with a win over Northants.

Chasing 197 - a total that would have been the highest ever for a side batting second to win - the Outlaws needed just 28 from 23 balls with the 18-year-old bowled all three victims.

Paul Franks played around a full-pitched delivery, Jason Gallian was yorked and new batsman Richard Logan fell first ball in similar style to leave the Outlaws with no way back.

Contrasting half-centuries from Matthew Wood and Michael Lumb had carried the Phoenix to 196-5.

With Yuvraj Singh caught in the deep early on, Lumb launched five sixes in his 55 before he was bowled attempting to sweep Gareth Clough.

Stand-in skipper Wood steadied the tempo in a 44-ball 57 and Gavin Hamilton made up for two first-ball ducks so far in this competition with an unbeaten 41 from 24 deliveries.

Australian leg-spinner Stuart MacGill included Wood, holing out to mid-off, in a haul of 3-42.

Notts set off well, Gallian providing a level-headed 34 while Kevin Pieterson blitzed 44 from 21 balls, with four fours and three sixes.

But a Michael Lumb slower ball gained a high leading edge from the South African batsman to mid-on, one of three wickets for the medium-pacer.

Yorkshire: Yuvraj Singh, G M , M J Lumb, M J Wood (Capt), C White, V J Craven, R J Blakey (Wkt), A K D Gray, T T Bresnan, C E W Silverwood, R J Sidebottom.

Nottinghamshire: J E R Gallian, C E Shreck, G E Welton, K P Pietersen, B M Shafayat (Wkt), P J Franks (Capt), G D Clough, W R Smith, S R Patel, S C G MacGill, R J Logan.
