All the Latest news, Scores and Updates from day 2 of the Cricket World Dice Cricket County Championship Round 7 – Division 2
Worcestershire v Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire 259 (Duckett 50, Broad 46*, Tongue 4/73) & 138/3 (Duckett 54*, Tongue 3/60)
Worcestershire 268 (Wessels 107, Fletcher 3/52)
Rikki Wessels made a fabulous century to give Worcestershire a small lead on first innings. He played very fluently almost single handedly keeping the Pears' innings on track. The bowlers kept to their disciplines and were rewarded for their efforts minimising the Worcestershire batters boundary options and chipping away with a regular flow of wickets.
By the close in their second innings Nottinghamshire had reached 138/3 with Ben Duckett 54 not out.
Durham v Glamorgan
Glamorgan 199 (Carlson 73, Wood 7/76) & 236/6 (Carlson 70*, Lloyd 68, Root 51)
Durham 222 (Lees 55, van der Gugten 5/36)
Glamorgan had a very good day firstly removing Durham before opening up a healthy lead. Durham did make a small lead on first innings but they would have hoped to obtain a much bigger one, van der Gugten taking 5/36.
Glamorgan batters then managed to control the match with Carlson, Lloyd and Root all passing 50. They'll be hoping to put the game beyond Durham tomorrow.
Middlesex v Leicestershire
Middlesex 211 (Simpson 38, Wright 5/84) & 73/2
Leicestershire 305/9dec (Mike 68, Roland-Jones 3/56)
Leicestershire had another good day this time with the bat. Although nobody went on to get a big score, Ben Mike top scored with 68, enough players made contributions to give them a lead of 94 on first innings.
Their aggressive declaration gave Chris Wright enough time to get two wickets before the close. At stumps they still lead by 21 and are in a good position.
Derbyshire v Sussex
Sussex 200 (Haines 40, Hudson-Prentice 4/23) & 77/3 (Wells 43*)
Derbyshire 347/9dec (Godleman 90, du Plooy 83, Hudson-Prentice 66, Briggs 5/92)
Derbyshire had another good day in front of their home supporters. Godleman made 90 and du Plooy 83 which really set them up to obtain a sizeable lead on first innings. The icing on the cake was applied by Hudson-Prentice who played with freedom making 66 giving them a lead of 147.
For the visitors Danny Briggs took 5/92. At the close Sussex were 77/3 with Luke Wells on 43* some 70 runs still adrift.
