Tim Bresnan made the highest limited-overs score of his career as Yorkshire beat Notts by two wickets to close in on a One-Day Cup quarter-final place.

Adam Lyth made 39 off 26 balls at the start of Yorkshire's reply, but they went from 45-0 to 50-4 as Harry Gurney and Jake Ball took two wickets each.
