All the Latest news, Scores and Updates from day 1 of the Cricket World Dice Cricket County Championship Round 7 - Division 1
Hampshire v Lancashire
Hampshire 353/8 (Organ 104, Bailey 3/79)
Felix Organ compiled a magnificent 104 in Hampshire’s imposing total of 353/8 on Day 1 of this match. It was a good toss to win, and Hampshire certainly made the most of conditions, and have declared overnight in a very strong position.
Only Bailey (3/79) had any answers for the Hampshire batters, and Lancashire will look to see how close they can get to this total tomorrow.
Warwickshire v Somerset
Warwickshire 190ao (Hose 50, Davey 6/72)
Somerset 168/7 (Green 48, Hannon-Dalby 2/30)
Replacing Philander is a big ask, but Somerset have Davey and he filled the Big Vern boots beautifully destroying Warwickshire with 6/72 in their total of just 190. Hose was the only landmark maker for Warwickshire with 50 before Davey had him caught behind.
Somerset in reply have not covered themselves in glory, crumbling to just 168/8 at the close with Hannon Dalby taking 2/3 and Green getting Somerset up within striking distance of a batting point.
Gloucestershire v Surrey
Surrey 157ao (Burns 50, Shaw 3/32)
Gloucestershire 146/5 (Bracey 73, S Curran 4/73)
When Surrey won the toss and elected to bat they did not expect to be shot out for 157 on a nice batting wicket. Only Rory Burns could make a half century for Surrey whilst Shaw (3/32) & van Buuren (3/33) mopped up a sorry tail.
Gloucester did no fare much better, and by the end of the day they had lost 5 with the score at 146 with Bracey holding firm on 73, and Sam Curran (4/73) doing the damage in taking out the top order.
Northamptonshire v Yorkshire
Northants 237ao (Vasconcelos 52, Pillans 3/28)
Yorkshire 77/0 (Lyth 51*)
Northamptonshire were relieved to win the toss on what looks a beautiful batting wicket. Vasconcelos (52) looked good until Patterson nipped one through his booming drive to rearrange his stumps. Some later order runs from Sanderson (41) helped Northants to an average score, but they will have hoped for far more on this surface.
At the close, Adam Lyth (51) has put Yorkshire in a commanding position to launch into an offensive tomorrow as they finish on 77/0.
Kent v Essex
Essex 297ao (Pepper 60, Podmore 4/69)
Kent 17/0 (Billings 13*)
Essex won the toss and chose to bat first here and Kent did well to remove the top order fairly cheaply. Pepper (60) supported by ten Doeschate (46) helped get Essex up to near the 300 mark, but fell 3 runs short of a batting point.
Podmore has impressed this season and is a name that keeps cropping up, and his 4/69 will have impressed selectors.
After a brief spell at the crease before stumps, Kent navigated through without loss and finished the day 17/0
