All the Latest news, Scores and Updates from day 1 of the Cricket World Dice Cricket County Championship Round 7 – Division 2
Worcestershire v Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire 259 (Duckett 50, Broad 46*, Tongue 4/73)
Nottinghamshire fought hard to make 259 having had their top order knocked over by Worcestershire captain Leach (2/79) and new ball partner Tongue (4/73.) Ben Duckett made 50 but could not go on and that was the case few a few others.
Their innings was saved somewhat but Stuart Broad's unbeaten 46. Worcestershire have made it to 74 at the close.
Durham v Glamorgan
Glamorgan 199 (Carlson 73, Wood 7/76)
Durham 107/5 (Lees 55)
Fifteen wickets fell on day 1 as the ball dominated the bat. Glamorgan elected to bat on a wicket that was more than tinged with live green grass and Mark Wood (7/76) more than exploited that assistance. He bowled with pace and although a little expensive he destroyed the Glamorgan order, only Carlson (73) had any answers.
They couldn't quite capatilize on that bowling performance as they finished the day on 107/5 only Alex Lees got in properly making 55.
Middlesex v Leicestershire
Middlesex 211 (Simpson 38, Wright 5/84)
Leicestershire had the better of day 1 here at Lords. Middlesex having won the toss elected to bat first but they were guilty too often of batters getting in and not going on. Simpson top scored with 38 as the home team just got past the first batting point.
Chris Wright using the slope to his advantage took 5/84. By the close Leicestershire were 67/1 and well placed.
Derbyshire v Sussex
Sussex 200 (Haines 40, Hudson-Prentice 4/23)
Derbyshire 106/2 (Godleman 66*)
Derbyshire dominated the opening day of this virtual county championship match here at Derby. Sussex won the toss but were bowled out just before tea for 200 as the Derbyshire seamers were persistent in their lengths and good lines, Hudson-Prentice led the way with 4/23.
Archer and Jordan took the new ball and hoped to have similar successes but by the close Derbyshire were well placed on 106/2 with captain Godleman on 66*.
