Twenty20 Cup North Division, Trent Bridge
Nottinghamshire 165-4 (A D Brown 66) v Yorkshire 154-8 (A W G Gale 76)
Notts beat Yorkshire by 11 runs.
Ali Brown inspired Nottinghamshire to an 11-run victory over Yorkshire, only their second victory in this season's Twenty20 Cup
The veteran batsman smashed four sixes and five fours en route to reaching 66 from 32 balls, supported by Matt Wood (46) in an 110-run second wicket stand.
Yorkshire, chasing a target of 166, never kept in touch with the required run rate and once Andrew Gale was caught off Mark Ealham for 76, their innings wilted.
England bowler Ryan Sidebottom, given permission to play by the ECB, then picked up two wickets in two balls to finish off his former county.
Although Nottinghamshire Chris Read was yorked second ball by Deon Kruis, the hosts got off to a flying start - with Brown and Wood adding 110 in the first 11 overs.
Brown, a summer signing from Surrey, had only managed 69 runs in his previous 13 one-day and Twenty20 matches against county opposition, but he found fine form on Monday night
At one point the 39-year-old hit Azeem Rafiq for consecutive sixes before the 18-year-old's quicker ball shattered his stumps.
Wood had missed the first two months of the season with an ankle injury but after making his return last week, he weighed in with three fours and a six of his own before lofting Kruis straight to deep midwicket.
That sucked the momentum from the home innings, with only one boundary coming between the 12th and 17th over.
Samit Patel finished 32 not out but the total looked well short of what had seemed possible with Brown and Wood at the crease.
But with Gale unable to find a partner to hit boundaries, Yorkshire quickly found themselves playing catch-up.
Rana Naved-ul-Hasan (9) and Michael Vaughan (10) both fell cheaply, and Jacques Rudolph (2) became one of two run-out victims.
After Gale fell, Sidebottom bowled both Gerard Brophy (26) and Shahzad (0), Luke Fletcher caught Tim Bresnan lbw (10), and Adam Lyth (4) fell in the final over - failing to make his ground coming back for a second run.
