Warwickshire-Yorkshire, the first day

Warwickshire had their first opportunity to play on grass this year, gaining valuable batting time in the middle.

Batting for a full 90 overs, the Bears scored 310 runs in humid conditions at the Tolerance Oval, the same ground where they won the Abu Dhabi Counties Super Cup last Sunday.

Ed Barnard was the standout performer with the bat, scoring 91 runs off 142 balls around the lunch interval, while Will Rhodes scored an exact half-century off 140 balls. Jacob Bethell returned to the middle after making 14 and scored an impressive 36* in the second innings. Olly Hannon-Dalby also added an entertaining 27* to end the proceedings.

Meanwhile, Hamza Shaikh, Chris Benjamin, and Craig Miles impressed at the Mohan Oval, with Shaikh striking 41 for a Combined XI against Notts.

The Bears will now rest and prepare for 90 overs in the field. Mark Robinson’s side has chosen to use a Duke ball, and all senior bowlers are expected to be given an opportunity to impress.
