Here are all the latest News , Scores and Updates from Round 2 Day 1 of the Virtual Cricket County Championship Division 1

Virtual  County Championship - DIVISION ONE

Essex v Yorkshire -  The Cloudfm County Ground, Chelmsford

Match Summary

Essex 189 (S Cook 61, Coad 3/33)

Yorkshire 138/5 (Kohler Cadmore 41*, Porter 4/47)                                                    

Div1 #EssvYor Day 1: A disastrous start to the match left Essex struggling on 100/8 with Ben Coad doing some damage. Thanks to S Cook (61) and Peter Siddle (22) the score was pushed up nearer to 200 although this left Essex already a long way behind in the match. Yorkshire were not without blame in the careless batting department as they ended the day on 138/5 with Kohler-Cadmore not out on 41 and Joe Porter doing the business for Essex with all five wickets.                             


Gloucestershire v Lancashire - The Bristol County Ground, Bristol

Match Summary

Gloucestershire 282ao (Dent 98, Bailey 6/92)

Lancashire 65/2 (Livingstone 42*, Drissell 1/28)                                               

Div1 #GlovLanc Day 1: Gloucester captain Chris Dent fell 2 short of what would have been a well made 100 out of his side's 282ao. Tom Bailey ripped the heart out of the Gloucestershire batting with 6/92. Liam Livingstone saw out the day on 42* to leave Lancashire on 65/2.                       


Hampshire v Kent - The Ageas Bowl, Southampton

Match Summary

Hampshire 262ao (Alsop 59, Milnes 6/75

Kent 54/3 (Khun 31*, Stevenson 2/35)                                               

 Div1 #HamvKen Day 1: Matt Milnes was all but unplayable as he ripped through the Hampshire top order to record figures of 6/75. Apart from a profitable partnership between Alsop (59) and Barker (56), Hampshire struggled to 262ao. In reply, Kent were grateful for the close of play after 2 late Edwards wickets left them on 54/3.                                  


Surrey v Somerset – The Kia Oval, London

Match Summary

Surrey 290ao (Jacks 68, Bess 5/65)

Somerset 41/0 (Davies 20*)                                                    

Div1 #SurvSom Day 1: Most Surrey batters make starts with Ollie Pope (50) and Will Jacks (68) looking good but failing to capitalise. Liam Plunkett (48) slapped a few to get Surrey to a respectable 1st innings score. Somerset spinner Dom Bess enjoyed some early turn off the surface, recording figures of 5/65. In the brief reply, Davies (20*) looks in ominous form for tomorrow.                                                      


Warwickshire v Northamptonshire - Edgbaston, Birmingham

Match Summary

Warks 237ao (Ambrose 54, Ashraf 4/64)

Northants 78/7 (Wakely 17, Hannon-Dalby 4/32)                                                         

Div1 #WarvNor Day 1: A shaky start from Warwickshire saw Northants well on top with the top order splintered at the hands of Ashraf (4/64) & Buck (3/70). A fine partnership of level headed experience between Ambrose (54) & Woakes (34) helped with some big hitting from Brookes (56) saw Warwickshire to a competitive total. Northants had no answer for Hannon Dalby, whose 4/32 leave Northants struggling.
