Bresnan heroics give Yorkshire triple title chance
Tim Bresnan completed one of the great hundreds of the county cricket summer at Lord’s, going to a seven-and-a-half hour 142 not out as Yorkshire turned the tables on title rivals Middlesex in thrilling fashion. Bresnan’s brilliant 293-ball knock hauled Yorkshire to 390 in reply to Middlesex’s first innings 270, with Ryan Sidebottom then following up his own batting heroics from No.11 by striking with the new ball as he and Jack Brooks dealt Middlesex two early blows before they recovered to 81 for 2 by the end of a gripping third day. Yorkshire, however, still lead by 39 runs.
