Middlesex v Nottinghamshire: venue Lord's, London
Nottinghamshire 315 (Patel 91, Moores 64, Murtagh 4/65, Harris 3/73) & 370 (Moores 107, Duckett 100, Murtagh 4/84)
Middlesex 323 (Simpson 80, Harris 64, Robson 51, Mullaney 3/38) & 281/8 (Eskinazi 66, Chappell 4/85)
Result – Match Drawn
Points – 9 points each
Honours even here at HQ after a hard fought 4 days where bat dominated the ball. Needing 10 wickets to win on the last day Notts nearly got there taking 8 Chappell (4/85) was the enforcer and so nearly got the team over the line.
Eskinazi top scored (66) but there were contributions throughout the innings to secure the draw as chasing down nearly 400 was never a realistic target, both teams taking 9 points each.
Leicestershire v Worcestershire: venue Leicester
Leicestershire 383/5dec (Dearden 167*, Ackermann 69, Horton 57) & 221/5 (Azad 102*, Ali 3/56)
Worcestershire 181 (Wright 4/86) & 392 (D'Oliveira 139, Cox 62, Mitchell 62, Mike 5/54)
Result - Leicestershire won by 5 wickets
Points - Leicestershire (23) , Worcestershire (1)
Hassan Azad steered his side home to well earned victory with his first hundred of the season scoring 102*. The leading run scorer in the division last year was back to his best in this innings pouncing on anything that was short.
Moeen Ali threatened to spark a wobble with 3/56 but Azad wasn't to be removed and Leicestershire continue their amazing start to the season.
Derbyshire v Durham: venue Derby
Durham 232 (Harte 72, Palladino 6/61) & 278 (Trevaskis 112, Burnham 49, Rampaul 4/79)
Derbyshire 310/6 dec (Godleman 150, Hosein 51*, Wood 3/77) & 203/4 (Reece 127, du Plooy 53)
Result – Derbyshire won by 6 wickets
Points – Derbyshire (22), Durham (3)
Luis Reece scored his first championship hundred of the season and in doing so saw his team to the brink of victory. Chasing 200 to win this match he and du Plooy (53) did the bulk of the work as the Durham bowlers struggled here. Derbyshire's win seems them climb up the table and continue their recent good form.
Sussex v Glamorgan: venue Hove
Sussex 110 (de Lange 6/39, Hogan 4/71) & 332 (Archer 105*, Garton 57, Hogan 4/93)
Glamorgan 149 (Bopara 4/26, Robinson 4/36) & 164 (Selman 54, Garton 5/64)
Result – Sussex won by 129 runs
Points – Sussex (19) , Glamorgan (3)
Sussex wrapped up the win here very comfortably by a margin of 129 runs. Wickets fell regularly despite Selman's (54) resistance. Garton was the star with the ball taking 5/64 with Ollie Robinson chipping in with three giving him seven in the match.
Glamorgan rather suffered for not making the most of their brilliant start on day 1, who'd have thought at that time that Glamorgan would end up being beaten before the end of day 3.
