There was an ancient feeling of the third day here. On the one hand, it rained. The spectators arrived poorly equipped, having left their umbrellas on the porch or in the car, lulled by the idea that they were an unnecessary accessory. They met at the back of the bleachers, or under the overhangs at the top, slightly amused by being caught.

The cricket felt like it was from another era, too: without haste and attrition. Neither team would be particularly unhappy if the result were a draw on Friday night and the pace of the Yorkshire bats to decrease Nottinghamshire total has only been altered occasionally. If they can avoid defeat, Yorkshire will enter next week's match at Roses at Headingley, just a point or two behind their relegation rivals with a game in hand.

The only frustrated figure in the Yorkshire outfit, one could imagine, as the weather closed in 20 minutes after lunch, it would be Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who is eight races away from completing a first hundred in senior cricket from the he did for Worcestershire against Yorkshire in the Royal London Cup in May of last year.

His exit from New Road was not pleasant, of course, after Steve Rhodes, the Yorkshireman who was the coach of Worcestershire, decided that the end-of-season movement proposed by Batsman to Headingley could also take effect immediately.

Kohler-Cadmore has not yet achieved a place in the Yorkshire Championship team, but has the opportunity to take advantage of the team's continuous flow state and put it right between now and the end of the season.

Behind Alex Lees and Jack Le In the beginning, he was not retired until the match against his old county in Scarborough last month, but with Lees gone to Durham and Leaning currently out of disagreement, an opportunity has arisen and he has responded Well, this comes after his 81 against Somerset last week. He has 10 limits so far, but one characteristic of the entries has been his patience – another virtue not sufficiently celebrated these days – that up to now has sustained him for more than three and a half hours.

Only 33 overs were possible, during which the Nottinghamshire bowlers found little more stimulation on the field than on day two. In addition to a lively first hour on the first day, he has been quite insensitive.

This only served to increase his frustration even more when the opportunities were lost. Steven Mullaney spilled the easiest on Luke Wood's second slip just after Yorkshire had avoided tracking and picked up his third batting spot, but then dropped one into the hollow, though much more difficult, of Mark Footitt.

Both times the beneficiary was Jonny Tattersall, the wicketkeeper in his first season of the first XI cricket, at 30 and 38. He also did some of his good luck, going on to complete his second first class match at fifty and five against his opponent Tom Moores clung to a catch, with a low hand to his right, when Harry Gurney finally made a breakthrough, finishing a position that added 102 for the fifth wicket.

Wait a little acceleration in the score rate at the start of the last day at least. Yorkshire has seven overs in which to score 43 runs for an additional point of batting and, since staying awake could still be reduced to just one point, it would be wise to chase it.
