Jonny Tattersall and Jack Shutt have reflected on a crucial victory in Yorkshire’s Royal London Cup campaign, the Vikings handing champions Glamorgan a first defeat of 2022.

Yorkshire defended a target of 258 to win by 23 runs on a used pitch.

It ensured they had a week-long break with three wins from four games in Group B.

Tattersall hit 55 off 56 balls as Yorkshire reached a total of 257-9 after winning a crucial toss. Harry Duke made 87 to the 40 of opening partner Will Fraine.

Off-spinner Shutt, 25, then returned a List A best of 4-46 to lead a disciplined bowling display as the Welshmen were bowled out for 234 with seven balls to spare.

Yorkshire have now replaced Glamorgan, who had won two from two in this one, in the top three places in the table.

“It was a very good win,” said captain Tattersall. “I am very happy. The boys put in an incredible shift today.

“It helped winning the toss on a used wicket. The game played very similar to how it did here last year.

“We came out victorious then, and we did that again today with a bit more comfort, which was very pleasing.

“It was difficult (to hit). The pitch was slow, and slower balls were in.

“There wasn’t a lot of pace to work with but Dukey played brilliantly through the middle. He showed great intent and came up with some important boundaries at times.

“We put on a great partnership to keep the momentum going in our innings. Will Fraine also played brilliantly at the top.

“It was a really good win set up by the batsmen, and obviously our bowlers followed it up and delivered.
? “Jack Shutt was outstanding with his four wickets. But everyone did the required work.”

This was only Shutt’s seventh List A game, and he added: “I’m really pleased with my own performance. For me it’s about taking opportunities when they come.

“I’m not in the team every week, so it’s about making it count when I come in and show people what I can do.

“It was a really good win. They won the league last year and have a good side, so it’s very positive signs for the group. We’re really happy.”

In fact, going back to last season’s league and including the start of this year, Glamorgan have only lost twice in their last six games. Both have been to Yorkshire on this ground.

Yorkshire return to action against Essex in Chelmsford next Wednesday.

Seamer Ben Cliff will then link up with the England Under 19s, but Will Luxton – also eligible to play in a series against Sri Lanka – will remain with the county.
