County Championship latest
Last Updated: 29/06/15 6:09pm
Updates from six County Championship games across Division One and Two.
Durham (41-3) v Yorkshire (557-6d): Durham look set for a long couple of days as they have limped to 41-3 in reply to Yorkshire's mammoth 557-6d. Paul Collingwood was trapped in front by Steven Patterson for a four-ball duck after both openers fell to leave Yorkshire in total control after the record seventh-wicket partnership of 366 between Jonny Bairstow and Tim Bresnan. Bairstow walked in on 219no from 268 balls, with Bresnan also enjoying a career-best score of 169no at the Emirates ICG Durham. (4.15pm)
Middlesex (231-6) v Hampshire (176): Middlesex are building a healthy first-innings lead after a 111-run stand between Nick Compton (87) and John Simpson (50no) in a low-scoring game. Having started the day 59-0, Middlesex slumped to 144-5 before those two came to the crease and the hosts are now 231-6 in reply to Hampshire's 176. Compton eventually fell to Danny Briggs while Gareth Berg and Bradley Wheal have taken a couple of wickets each, with the latter claiming his in the first three balls he bowled on day two. (4.10pm)
Nottinghamshire (240) v Worcestershire: Notts have suffered a lower-order collapse on day one at Trent Bridge, bowled out for 240 having been 102-2 at lunch. James Taylor could make only eight before he was trapped in front by Joe Leach and after Brendand Taylor's vigil - he made 69 from 120 balls - was brought to an end by Jack Shantry - Charlie Morris claimed Samit Patel, Chris Read and Brett Hutton to leave them 170-7. Ed Barnard removed Ben Hilfenhaus to make that 170-8 and only a final-wicket stand of 50 between Riki Wessels and Andy Carter pushed the total towards respectability. (4.30pm)
Warwickshire v Sussex (562-5): Ben Brown (105no) and Ashar Zaidi (101no) have both reached three figures as Sussex build a formidable total on day two against Warwickshire. Coming together on 380-5, they have added 182 for the sixth wicket. Earlier, Chris Nash failed to add much to his overnight score, falling for 121 to Jeetan Patel, before the in-form Luke Wright smashed 13 fours and a six on his way to a wonderful 110. He was eventually bowled by by Patel. (3.50pm)
Lancashire v Northamptonshire (274-4):Northants are 274-4 after winning the toss and electing to bat at Old Trafford. Ben Duckett made 134 before he was trapped in front by Simon Kerrigan having shared a 170-run second wicket stand with Alex Wakely, who made 56 before he was bowled by James Faulkner. Kyle Coetzer earlier fell for one, with Rob Keogh the other man out for 19. Richard Levi (24no) and Adam Rossington (22no) are at the crease. (4.10pm)
Surrey (448) bt Gloucestershire (113 and 155) by an innings and 180 runs:
Zafar Ansari and Tom Curran combined to underline their potential two of the best young bowlers in English cricket by helping Surrey to a comprehensive thrashing of Gloucestershire at The Oval.
Both bowlers recorded career-best figures, with Ansari, 23, taking 6-30 with his left-arm spin in the second-innings after paceman Curran had picked up 7-20 as Gloucestershire, skittled for 113 and 155, fell to defeat by an innings and 180 runs.
Only Will Tavare (58) resisted for long as Surrey completed a 22-point victory inside three days, their fifth of the season, to strengthen their promotion ambitions.
Resuming the day on 102-7 in reply to the hosts' 448, Gloucestershire's first innings lasted just 10.3 overs on Monday morning as Curran quickly added two more scalps - Craig Miles and Liam Norwell for ducks - to his five of Sunday to ensure the follow-on would be applied.
Matt Dunn trapped Chris Dent early in their second innings before Ansari got involved by having Michael Klinger caught at short-leg.
Their 52-2 at lunch was 122-6 by tea, Curran having Hamish Marshall caught behind before Ansari claimed Ian Cockbain (17) and Benny Howell (3) lbw - both players undone by trying to cut off the back foot.
In between, Tavare's fine knock was also ended by Ansari when he nicked off to slip after 132 balls.
After tea, Jack Taylor (1) was bounced out by James Burke, prompting Curran to return and end Geraint Jones' resistance on 24 with a simple return catch.
The end followed soon afterwards - Ansari picking up the last two wickets as he had Miles caught for 10 and last man Fuller (0) lbw after missing an attempted sweep.
