I hope the poor lad comes back from that. Spinning it in to a leftie with a tiny boundary to legside. Crazy captaincy. Looks in pieces.

What an absolute shocker of a stat for Carver, poor lad. Surely we can't through this one away.

Stitched him up???

Gave him the ball when the game was safe, in order to give him experience. Certainly didn't work, but "stitch up" is a bit rich

I suppose Morgan "stitched up" Ben Stokes as well then???

3 overs 1-8 at the end of a big run chase, excellent bowling from Patto.

more fantastic entertainment

tell your family friends and even your enemies !

no better way to spend an afternoon or evening

simply stunning from willey and the firepower in our batting is impressive

Rashid and Patterson were wily and skillful with the ball - Patterson a real find in this format - -it is our bowling which will be the key as to how far we go so Patterson is important

agree with comments re handscomb - he is a clear non specialist keeper and again in tight games against better teams this could cost us

sympathy for carver but at the end of the day this is professional sport - he could have gone the same way against lancs last year in a dreadful over but was lucky two dreadful balls were held out in the deep

I fear he has neither the skills or mentality to be a successful sportsman - at least he will never be forgotten after today

hopefully I am wrong and there is still time but difficult to see him making progress

What a wierd day.

It started when the umpires came on 'for a look round' well before the scheduled start .. The scorecard said Baldwin & Cowley ... One f our umpires was certainly P J Hartley & we weren't sure of the other (it turned out to be Paul Pollard).

Worcs lost the toss, but then put Yorkshire in ... a bit odd but explainable by the forecast showers. Lyth & Lees opened, managing the grand total of 4 off the first over... Lees then hit a 6 onto the Football stand roof, but was bowled by Hastings. This brought in Willey who didn't hang about .. although Lyth was having problems hitting it. Thankfully Willey more than compensated for the other batsmen 118 in 55 balls with 9*4s & 8*6s. At one point we had rain, they stayed on, eventually the umpires decided to come off, only for the rain to abate. So once the covers were removed we continued. Poor Hastings had one awful 9 ball over (2 wides & 1 no ball) that went for 34 ... the highest total Id ever seen scored in one over. Eventually Yorks ended up on their highest ever T20 score (233) with Willey being the highest scoring batsman, his 118 beating Ian Harvey's 209 all the way back in 2005.

To put the score in context, in the 1980 Surrey scored around 240 in 40 overs & we thought it was a massive total.

But the day still had more drama. Worcs started well with Clqarke looking good, but thankfully he hit Rashid's worst ball of the day down Leaning's throat in from of the East stand. Even odder Rashid bowled very well apart from a 2 or 3 balls in that over!! As a result Worcs were behind Vera (Duckworth) when the rain returned and they had to go off. Apps were checked and it looked bad, but then it stopped & we resumed at 5pm. Whilst Worcs batted well they slowly slipped behind the total. After 10 overs they were 102-2 whilst Yorks had been 112-2. By 15 overs Worcs were 15 runs behind, then IT happened. Carver bowled to Ross Whiteley born in Sheffield but an ex-Derbyshire player. Whitely hit a 6, then another, then another. At some stage Carver tried a different line, a wide resulted. So 37 runs came off the over, beating my personal 'worst' set under 2 hours before!!!. Whilst this put Worcs 14 runs in front of the comparable Yorks score they were still behind Vera & we'd still our 'big' over to come. They didn't come close. Patterson had already bowled one tight over, he then did it again & again. 3 overs for 8 when those overs are the 15th, 17th & 19th overs is brilliant bowling.

So a wierd, but satisfying day. You have to feel for Hastings, scoring 6*6 in an over and losing & really for the Worcs team. To get 196 & yet lose by 37 runs must be disheartening.

Another match in which we bat first, another big total defended comfortably enough. I would be delighted if teams keep putting us in on this evidence. It's a small sample size but our batting doesn't look nearly as effective when asked to chase, as they were by Lancs and Derbyshire. Our bowlers seem to have a knack of bowling good overs at crucial times. Of slight concern is the form of our two Aussies. After a promising start Marsh seems to be finding it tough, as does Handscombe.

I've been quiet for a while, but lots of comments on today.

No-one who saw Carver at Taunton this summer could say he hasn't got mindset to be 1st class cricketer. He also took two crucial deep-field catches today. It doesn't do any top-level sportsman harm to learn to live with and learn from a public humiliation as well as triumph. Read Kipling's If again, if in doubt.

That Guardian article is really interesting. Among other things, the Phil Simmons comment: "In Test matches you assess by sessions; in one-day cricket you assess by overs; in T20 cricket you assess by balls,”. How true. I found myself watching the Worcester innings today caring intensely ball by ball where they were in relation to the DLS number on the main scoreboard. Partly because they started so fast off the blocks that they were well ahead when it first threatened to rain; then with great relief as our spinners came on, and in the space of one over from Rafiq, and one from Rashid, suddenly it was us ahead (and then they did stop for rain); then with astonishment and a real attack of nerves as Whiteley lofted his six sixes.

Also loved the point about specialist wicketkeepers. The game was most at risk for us today not when Whateley was whacking his sixes, but when a misfield (Leaning?) on the cover boundary let a regulation stop go for four, followed next ball by Handscomb letting 4 byes through off Rashid, a regulation keeper's take. I too wanted Hodd at that moment. The data suggests maybe we should.

Interesting that even Gale criticised Brezzie's captaincy for bringing Carver on when he did (Cricinfo commentary quotes him). I guess you can josh your brother-in-law in public like that if you have a basically good relationship, which I'm sure they have!

Anyway, Brezzie has a good defence in the argument 'the game was won by then, I wanted to give him the experience' (proof of pudding in the eating - - as if Brezzie had said to himself "even if he goes for six sixes, we'll win this game, so why not ...?"). Of course, he couldn't have imagined he would actually go for six sixes happy.gif.

Great to see Adil Rashid signing for hungry nine-year old autograph hunters on the boundary between overs; great to see Adam Lyth tetchily telling same eager lads 'I'll sign at the end' -- cue intense debate among nine-year olds whether this meant 'end of the match' or 'end of the over'. Carrot and stick, keep 'em on their toes, these lads will grow up wanting to come to cricket matches, like we did. Maybe (some of them) will grow beyond Twenty20, maybe not. I'd rather they came to these than not at all.

Watching Willey bat I thought Well, finally, that's what we signed him for.

Patto seems to have found how to make himself unplayable in this format, just like in proper cricket. Different technique, not sure what it is, but it sure baffled Worcestershire today, Ball after ball he was rapping them on the pads as they tried to force him away, first on the leg side, then on the off. If he's found a 'secret sauce' that works for T20 then we are really well placed, what with him and Rashid. I'm beginning to see why Adil went down such a storm in Adelaide a couple of winters ago.

Adam Lyth looked happy in his skin today. His batting and deep fielding/catching in T20 have been as thrilling to watch this year as his batting and slip catching have been disappointing in the real game.

Alex Lees must have had it written on his gloves. Great six, great clean bowled, next man in, no problem. Lyth, Lees, Leaning -- all showed they have a place in this Yorkshire set up. Winning like this at T20 must be good for morale, in danger of sagging elsewhere, and in need of a boost.

We're top of this table, and our NRR is looking good if it ends up tight.

Enjoyed it again. A lot. Really like Yorkshire winning.

Well I got my standing ovation, for an excellent match winning display by David Willey and not for Alex Lees. He didn't hang around though which was a blessing.

Patto was a revelation, I think Worcs were waiting for him to bowl wide, like me, and he fooled the lot of us.

Ross Whiteley and to a lesser extent John Hastings gave us a bit of a fright, but big hitters with nothing to lose can do that to you and I was only a teeny bit nervous.

I hope Carver has a good temperament or he may need a therapist.

If he'd been bowling with the wind behind him and longer boundaries from the Truman end he might have had just a bad dream, and not a full blown nightmare. His team mates and the fans on his bit of boundary were great though.

Think the weather must have kept quite a few people away but those that went had a couple of good reasons to come back again.

Just a further point, I was disappointed that Fisher was again left out. I find it very strange as he's been a big part of our one day teams in recent years. I'm concerned that we don't start playing him we'll lose him and that would be a real shame. I also questioned playing three spinners in wet conditions but thankfully two of them at least bowled well, Rashid especially showing his good side. I won't mention Carver as I don't want to be too harsh on a young player after a good win.

Gutted that we missed this, we had planned to go but stupidly looked at the forecast and believed it. A hundred in a t20 would have been great to see. That aside we do look strong batting first and with Liam to come back in we are a match for anyone. Our two Aussies form is a worry but if we get to the final stage the Aussies tend to perform(providing they are still with us).

I'm amazed that no-one has mentioned the farm animals...?
I liked the goats.
Also - i know this is a Yorkshire Forum - but it will be the end of the game as i know it when we don't recognise the achievements of our opponents. It may have been a short boundary - but six sixes in an over is an amazing achievement and one which i never thought i'd see in the flesh. Well done Ross Whiteley .
And well done Yorkshire with the family day - you got most things right today..
GREAT to see so many kids in the ground.

well played boys. Very impressive.

Fair comment steve

I think six sixes has only been done six times in professional cricket

could someone correct me if I am wrong on that as I would like to know the actual figure

I make it Sobers, Ravi Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs,Yuvraj,Marcus Stoinis, and apparently in April 2013, in a second XI game for Lancashire against Yorkshire at Scarborough, Jordan Clark did it off spinner Gurham Randhawa. Before today, that is.

According to Cricinfo, Whiteley's was the 6th time in first class cricket. Sobers, Yuvraj, Gibbs & Clark (Lancs) were 4 of them. No idea who the 5th was.

Clark's was also against a Yorkshire spinner (Randwana) in a second X1 match.

EDIT --- Ravi Shastri was the 5th.
