Yorkshire tied up by Notts
Yorkshire were beaten semi-finalists in the Barbados Twenty20 Cup at the Kensington Oval.
Andrew Gale’s side lost to Nottinghamshire by five wickets as they failed to defend 128-7 in a tight contest. All-rounder Steven Mullaney proved to be the Outlaws’ match-winner with a brisk half-century.
Yorkshire’s defence of their pre-season Caribbean title had got off to an emphatic start with a seven-wicket win over English domestic champions Hampshire in a rerun of last summer’s Friends Life t20 final.
Ryan Sidebottom, Liam Plunkett and Moin Ashraf took two wickets apiece to restrict Hampshire to 112-6 after being invited to field, before skipper Gale underpinned the chase with an unbeaten 43 off 51 balls.
The Vikings then lost regular wickets after electing to bat against Notts and had to rely on 36 from Phil Jaques to get them a defendable total.
But despite the early departures of England openers Alex Hales and Michael Lumb, the Trent Bridge side crept over the line as Adam Lyth’s part-time spin accounted for two wickets.
Yorkshire play a brace of two-day matches against Northamptonshire and Notts this week.
