Liam Norwell saves Warwickshire’s necks with nine-wicket haul and sends Yorkshire down

There have been few clouds on Yorkshire’s horizon at first of this dramatic day, although that they had misplaced their ultimate recreation to bottom-of-the-table Gloucestershire. Warwickshire have been solely 23 runs forward of Hampshire with eight wickets left of their second innings, and time was urgent.

Warwickshire didn’t seem to have scored sufficient after they have been dismissed for 177, as they set Hampshire solely 140 to win – which the guests have been eager to do to be able to seize second place from Lancashire.

Sam Hain had a leg harm and his runner was run out cheaply. Solely Dom Sibley with 77, in his final innings for Warwickshire earlier than returning to Surrey, gave the defending champions one thing to bowl at.

Oliver Hannon-Dalby – who has carried Warwickshire’s assault all season as Chris Woakes, Ollie Stone and Norwell have been injured, whereas Tim Bresnan of final 12 months’s championship-winning aspect retired – took Hampshire’s first wicket.

Norwell took the following 9 wickets, three of them leg-before, essentially the most controversial determination being the decision in opposition to the left-handed Nick Gubbins, who was struck by Norwell bowling around the wicket and, as replays advised, outdoors the road. Gubbins had been calmly steering Hampshire to their goal in his 46.

Warwickshire had sensed the chances when Hampshire’s captain James Vince didn’t promote his wicket dearly. He tried to drag a ball from Norwell that was not sufficiently quick and miscued a catch to long-leg: Hampshire 49 for 4.

James Fuller, in an eighth wicket stand of 33 with Gubbins, took Hampshire as much as 124 for seven. Thereupon, for the umpteenth time this season, the pink Dukes ball needed to be modified and Norwell took the prime wicket of Gubbins with the very subsequent ball – and that leg-before verdict.

Hampshire wanted solely seven runs to win when Norwell, nonetheless pounding in, knocked out Fuller’s center stump. Crucially 5 balls in his over remained, and Hampshire’s quantity eleven can declare to be the worst batsman in county cricket. Mohammad Abbas, after surviving three balls from Norwell, selected to wander throughout his stumps to leg-glance, missed, and was given leg-before in a much less contentious determination.

Nottinghamshire gained the Division Two title by defeating Durham by 462 runs, in order that they and second-placed Middlesex will substitute Gloucestershire and Yorkshire within the ten-team Division One.

“It [the title] is the end result of lots of laborious work by lots of people,” stated the Nottinghamshire head coach Peter Moores. “To have a second when the solar comes out in entrance of our pavilion, and Steve [Mullaney the captain] picks up a trophy, is totally implausible.

“Final 12 months we most likely gained extra video games than anybody else within the competitors, so it felt a troublesome one to ask us to start out in Division Two once more. However after we received put there, due to what occurred in 2019 moderately than final 12 months, not one of the gamers complained. I didn’t hear one moan or groan or something.

“We simply stated we’d take this 12 months as one other likelihood to get higher. As a membership we imagine in serving to individuals to get higher as a result of that can all go into serving to us win issues sooner or later, so whenever you do recover from the road and win a trophy, it all the time feels particular.”

Durham in the meantime have been penalised once more by the ECB. This time that they had ten factors deducted as a result of their Australian batsman Nic Maddinson had been discovered utilizing a bat larger than the authorized width.
