Virtual County Championship - DIVISION ONE
Yorkshire v Kent
Kent 220ao (Stevens 40, Patterson 4/64) & 56/6 (Kuhn 23, Bresnan 4/30)
Yorkshire 307/9 dec (Bresnan 113, Milnes 4/78)
Everyone's favourite Tim Bresnan hit a remarkable 113 in his teams ominous looking 307 all out on day 2 with Matt Milnes taking 4/78.
Some balls misbehaved later on, in the day, as Kent struggled to get going and in a day for the big man that he will remember for a long time - Bresnan took 4/30 in reducing the visitors to just 56/6. Some serious rebuilding will need to happen for Kent to get out of this tomorrow.
Lancashire v Somerset
Somerset 324/9 dec (Brookes 48*, Anderson 4/84)
Lancashire 304/8 dec (Vilas 106, C Overton 3/70)
Lancashire returned the favour on day 2 and took the Somerset bowlers to task. T
he loss of Jennings first ball to a fine Davies catch of Overton (3/70) was a bonus as the Lancashire opener wafted at a wide one, but captain Vilas scored 106 in a series of partnerships lower down the order to finish the day and making a bold statement in declaring 20 runs behind Somerset's first innings 324.
Surrey v Northamptonshire
Northamptonshire 275ao (Newton 88, Plunkett 5/85) & 90/5 (Cobb 25*, Morkel 3/37)
Surrey 278ao (Foakes 112*, Glover 3/46)
Surrey will feel that they came up a little short, particularly after such a fine bowling display and will wsh they had more of a lead on first innings than a paultry 3 runs.Foakes 112* stuck around and watched it all fall apart from the other end as batsmen came and went.
Glover for Northants picked up three wickets in a fine spell. Northants failed to capitalise on a good performance though as they crumbled to 90/5 with Cobb still there on 25* and Morkel looking at his dangerous best with 3/37.
Essex v Hampshire
Essex 231ao (Lawrence 54, Fuller 3/8) & 127/2 (Browne 86*, Taylor 2/62)
Hampshire 243ao (Dawson 69, Quinn 4/54)
The Hampshire top order struggled to get going with the exception of Organ, who looked solid until he was undone by a ball from Allison that beat his defence.
The experienced Dawson nursed the tail on his way to a well-made 69, and Quinn was the man for Essex who, with figures of 4/54 restricted the Hampshire lead on first innings to just 12.
By the close, Taylor had claimed 2 and Essex were on 127 with Browne still there on 86* and looking set for a big one tomorrow.
