Women’s One-Day Cup Report: Warwickshire Women vs Yorkshire Women

After an incredible start to their first home game of the season Warwickshire Women needed to chase down 112, after bowling Yorkshire Women all out in 42.1 overs. Luck was not on the side of the Bear as they ultimately lost by four runs, a heart-breaking defeat.

Coming into the match today (12th May) Warwickshire Women were looking for their first win in the Royal London Women’s One-Day Cup after their first two matches last weekend to Kent and Sussex ended in some close, devastating defeats.

Following their Bank Holiday matches, Warwickshire were determined to show what they were truly capable of; glimpses we had previously seen before. Today they came back firing at home, the Edgbaston Foundation Sports Ground, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough, being bowled out for 108 with just four runs needed to seal victory.

Wining the toss and choosing to bowl first, Captain Marie Kelly put Yorkshire Women into bat, showcasing the bowling strengths Liz Russell, Issy Wong and Kathryn Bryce (6-1-20-2).

Starting off strongly, Wong’s first delivery was an appeal for LBW followed closely by a wicket ball, bowling opening batsmen Lauren Winfield, 0 (2 balls) – a great start to the game in the Birmingham sunshine.

Next came Russell, four balls later, taking the wicket of Abbey Freeborn. Two balls after that, England cricketer Katherine Brunt also fell victim to Russell (6-4-2-2) for nothing; three wickets had fallen in eight balls. To seal the deal Wong came back on to bowl taking the fourth wicket on the third ball of her over, Warwickshire couldn’t have asked for a better start following their recent heartbreak.

A slow spell in wicket taking meant Yorkshire were able to add on runs before the next spurt of wickets were out with a 25-run partnership between Leigh Kasperek and Alex MacDonald pushing Yorkshire’s total to 67-7.

The final push from the White Roses saw them finish with 112 all out in 42.1 overs, with Warwickshire using their best to get them out, Wong taking the final wickets (9.1-0-25-4).

After a short break, Warwickshire looked to be in control taking on a not-out-of-reach target of 113. However, the luck for Warwickshire’s bowlers had obviously been passed on to Yorkshire as the first three wickets fell for nine runs in 3.2 overs, alternating between Beth Langston and Katherine Brunt. A wicket shortly before tea saw the dismissal of Kelly, who between herself and Thea Brookes, put on the highest scoring partnership of the day of 36-runs, pushing the Bears to 45-4.

Coming back from tea, the wickets of Jo Gardner and Brookes fell cheaply and quickly at 58-5 and 67-6 but they were still ahead of Yorkshire’s target at that point.

It was a frustrating wait for the Bears as they slowly chipped away at the target needed with wickets falling by the wayside (with Wong out first ball) leaving the final push of 33 runs to Russell and Georgia Davis with 20 overs remaining.

The nerve-wracking partnership between Davis and Russell stretched out as long as it could with tension mounting all around Portland Road, getting the target down to single figures. Good bowling and great fielding from Yorkshire’s Katie Thompson (8.1-2-22-2) and Langston (10-4-8-5) ultimately put a stop to the 28-run partnership four runs before Warwickshire could claim their first win, much to the disappointment of the Warwickshire Women sat on the sidelines.

Even though Warwickshire played to their strengths and were hunting for a win, it was not their day. Next week away at Nottingham, the Bears will be able searching to score their first well-deserved win.

Women’s One-Day Cup Preview: Warwickshire Women vs Yorkshire Women

Following a disappointing start to the season, Warwickshire Women will be looking 'to raise their bar' as they seek for their first victory in the Royal London Women’s One-Day Cup this weekend at the Edgbaston Foundation Sports Ground.

The best efforts of the Bears didn’t pan out as they had hoped over the Bank Holiday weekend, losing by one wicket to Sussex and seven wickets to Kent. Looking forward to Sunday, Warwickshire are aiming to bounce back against Yorkshire in their first home game of the season.

Yorkshire Women will be a tough opponent, having had a mixed start to their One-Day Cup campaign, losing to Surrey and beating 2018 Division One winner’s Hampshire Women.

But with some of the stand-out bowling seen from Georgia Davis, taking four wickets against Sussex (10-2-18-4), closely followed by consistent Liz Russell, dismissing three Sussex players and attaining a breakthrough wicket at Kent, the Bears will be backing themselves.

On the batting front, opening pair Amy Jones and Bethan Ellis will be looking to build on their impressive 107-run partnership against Kent, with both notching up their first half century of the season in the game.

Developing from their winter training sessions, the Bears will be looking to fight back and pull out the winning performance they know they can do.

Laura MacLeod, Women and Girls Performance Manager at Warwickshire CCC, said there were glimpses of what the team is capable of over the weekend.

“There were some great bowling spells from Georgia Davis, Anisha Patel and Liz Russell, and some strong batting performances from Bethan Ellis, Marie Kelly and Amy Jones.

“Issy Wong on debut made an impact too.

“But we need to keep raising our bar by doing the basics well and playing with intent. Yorkshire will be a good match up for us”.

Warwickshire Women will face their rivals at home for the first time in their One-Day Cup pursuit at the Edgbaston Foundation Sports ground, Portland Road, this weekend hoping to seize victory third time lucky.
