Notts hit back as wickets tumble

County Championship D1, Trent Bridge (day one, stumps): Nottinghamshire 213 v Yorkshire 72-5

Nottinghamshire fought back strongly against Yorkshire on an eventful day at Trent Bridge which saw 15 wickets fall.

Notts won the toss and decided to bat, but they struggled throughout their innings as wickets fell regularly.

Matthew Wood top-scored with 58 and Adam Voges chipped in with 45, but Notts collapsed from 170-4 to 213 all out as Rana Naved took 3-63.

But Charlie Shreck and Mark Ealham both two two late wickets as Notts reduced Yorkshire to 72-5 in reply.

Notts' batting line-up has struggled for runs recently and they failed to find their form once again in this crucial County Championship Division One encounter.

Bilal Shafayat edged Matthew Hoggard to slip for one and after Mark Wagh and Wood put on 59 for the second wicket, Wagh (33) and Samit Patel both fell to Pakistan international Naved.

Wood brought up his half century but he edged Naved behind shortly after lunch and after a stand of 59 between Voges and Graeme Swann, who made 27, Notts collapsed.

Indeed they lost their last four wickets for only one run in 18 balls after tea, Adil Rashid helping himself to a couple of late wickets.

Yorkshire were soon in trouble themselves as Chris Taylor and Joe Sayers both fell to Shreck as the visitors stumbled to 18-2.

Adam Lyth and Jacques Rudolph tried to repair the damage with a stand of 50, but Ealham trapped the South African lbw for 19.

Swann took an excellent slip catch to dismiss Lyth off Andre Adams before Ealham got rid of Andrew Gale to leave Yorkshire reeling at the close of play.
