ROBINSON ROLLS OVER HAMPSHIRE
Sussex are the first team to record victory in the Bob Willis Trophy, thanks largely to a brilliant spell of bowling by Ollie Robinson. The paceman took 4/24 either side of lunch as Hampshire faltered in their chase of 245. He returned later to pick up the final wicket of Ajeet Dale, finishing with five wickets in the innings and eight in the match.

DURHAM HOOKED BY FISHER
Durham suffered an astonishing collapse at Emirates Riverside to give Yorkshire a brilliant opportunity to win in the opening round. Alex Lees struck 106, putting on 136 with David Bedingham (77) for the third wicket. When Bedingham fell, Durham were soon all out with Matthew Fisher taking four of the eight wickets to fall.

ESSEX DEMOLISH KENT TO SET UP THRILLING FINALE
A brilliantly disciplined bowling performance from Essex's bowlers have given them a sniff of victory against Kent. Having conceded an 89-run lead on first innings, the hosts induced a collapse with all four bowlers picking up at least one scalp, Simon Harmer's 4/35 the pick of the figures.Β 

SOMERSET'S CAPTAIN FANTASTIC
Tom Abell picked the perfect time to record his first red-ball century since last April, his impressive 119 setting up a hefty final innings total for Glamorgan. The Somerset skipper batted at a fairly high tempo throughout, but launched an assault on a Kieran Bull over to bring up three-figure. Abell did hole out to Bull but had already taken 24 off his over, and his side are well-placed for victory.

DIAL M FOR MURTAGH
Tim Murtagh took his 36th first-class five-wicket-haul to dismiss Surrey for 282 and give his Middlesex side a chance of setting up victory on the final day. The 39-year-old Irishman picked up four of the final five Surrey wickets as the hosts lost 7 for 28 either side of lunch.
