The best part of Yorkshire’s attempt to catch up to 491 was skipper Adam Lyth’s 174, which took 220 balls. In the end, though, they had to settle for a draw. But it wasn’t until George Gill and Jordan Thompson both hit fifty against Glamorgan that they got to 412.
After Somerset took a 77-run lead in the first innings thanks to Tom Kohler-Cadmore’s 130 and Jordan Mew’s 89, Northamptonshire answered in kind in their second innings. The captain, Sam Whiteman, led the batting with a patient 130, which included a 79-run stand for the eighth wicket with Tom Taylor, who also made a fifty.
After hanging on to a tie with Lancashire, Nottinghamshire could thank a brave Brett Hutton. The No. 8 player, Hutton, blocked 141 balls for an unbeaten 23. This included 43 balls with the last man, Olly Stone, who met only 5 balls in the stand before the game ended with both teams getting equal points.
Cheteshwar Pujara scored a hundred, and then Azhar Ali scored a hundred of his own. This helped Worcestershire keep up with Sussex and keep the game tied after giving up a 109-run lead in the first innings. Even though Ollie Robinson took 7 more wickets in the second innings, the innings was held up by Ali’s unbeaten 103 runs off 279 balls.
Measures taken at bowling
After getting 7 against Worcestershire in the first innings, Ollie Robinson did the same thing in the second innings, but it wasn’t enough to win.
Chris Rushworth destroyed Hampshire’s batting team with 7/38, giving Warwickshire a big win by an innings spread. Rushworth took seven of the nine wickets that fell, leaving Hampshire reeling at 35/9 before James Vince’s half-century gave them a slight lead, but not enough to undo the damage done by Rushworth.
