Batting performances

Skipper Adam Lyth’s 220-ball 174 was the highlight of Yorkshire’s attempted chase of 491, where they had to settle for a draw eventually. But it was not before they got to 412 with George Gill and Jordan Thompson also cracking fifties against Glamorgan.

After Tom Kohler-Cadmore’s 130 and Jordan Mew’s 89 earned Somerset a first innings lead of 77, Northamptonshire replied in kind in their second innings. Leading the batting effort there was skipper Sam Whiteman with a patient 130, which included a 79-run partnership for the eighth wicket with Tom Taylor, who helped himself to half-century as well.

Nottinghamshire had a defiant Brett Hutton to thank for afterholding onto a draw against Lancashire. The No. 8 Hutton blocked for 141 balls for an unbeaten 23, including 43 balls with last man Olly Stone who faced only 5 balls in the stand before the game drew to a close with honours shared.

Azhar Ali replied to Cheteshwar Pujara’s century with one of his own as Worcestershire held their own against Sussex, and managing todraw the game after conceding a first innings lead of 109. Ali’s unbeaten 103 off 279 balls was the pillar that held up the innings even as Ollie Robinson picked 7 more wickets in the second innings.

Bowling performances

Ollie Robinson, after picking 7 in the first innings against Worcestershire managed to repeat the feat in the second innings as well but it was still not enough to force a victory.

Chris Rushworth blitzed through the Hampshire batting unit with 7/38 as Warwickshire registered a big win by an innings margin. Rushworth accounted for 7 out of the nine wickets that fell with Hampshire reeling on 35/9 before James Vince’s half-century took them slightly ahead but not enough to reverse the damage done by Rushworth.
