Shan Masood’s Century Rescues Yorkshire in County Championship Opener

Cricket News: Masood’s Century Rescues Yorkshire on Opening Day Against Gloucestershire

In a captivating start to their County Championship match, the Yorkshire club cricket team faced a challenging opening day against Gloucestershire. England’s star player Joe Root, making his return to domestic red-ball cricket, could only manage 2 runs, as Pakistan Test captain Shan Masood’s impressive 26th first-class century was the highlight of the day.

Winning the toss, Gloucestershire’s bowlers struck early, reducing Yorkshire to 90 for 5, with Root and Harry Brook contributing just 28 runs between them. However, Masood stood firm, scoring a fluent 140 off 140 balls, laced with 15 boundaries. Jonny Tattersall (58) and Matt Milnes (51) also played crucial supporting roles as Yorkshire were bowled out for 326.

The chester le street cricket team’s bowling attack, led by Zaman Akhter’s career-best 5-89, proved effective in the opening session. But the Yorkshire club cricket side fought back in the afternoon, with Masood and Tattersall adding 100 runs for the sixth wicket.

“Masood’s century was the highlight of the day.”

By the close of play, Gloucestershire found themselves in trouble at 28-2, with Josh Shaw and Ajeet Singh removing the openers. The Blind cricket team from Gloucestershire will look to bounce back on the second day, while Yorkshire will aim to maintain their advantage and build on Masood’s stellar performance.
