Tykes skipper Andrew Gale continued his epic innings at North Marine Road on Saturday as he and his Yorkshire side set a fresh batch of records on the final day of the LV= County Championship division one match with Nottinghamshire, which ended in a predictable draw.

The Yorkshire captain, on 159 overnight when the score was 358-4, went on to make 272, the highest county score by a player at the Scarborough ground, eclipsing Jacques Rudolph’s 220 back in 2007 against Warwickshire.

It was also the 13th highest score in the county’s history and the third highest since the Second World War, and gave the crowd plenty to cheer about in a match that petered out after Gale’s dismissal early in the afternoon session.
