Division One 

Team effort leads to Hampshire win despite Hammond 169

Hampshire will be pleased with their bowling efforts as they beat Gloucestershire by 6 wickets.  Posting 457 with Felix Organ (118) and captain James Vince (95) leading the way, they were able to enforce the follow on after restricting Gloucestershire to 201.  Gloucs looked on course to save the game at 316-6, but a Kyle Abbott hattrick turned the game in Hampshire's favour and, only requiring 81 to win, Hampshire raced to victory within 10 overs.

Bowlers dominate as Lancashire see off Northants

Run scoring proved tricky for most at the County Ground as Lancashire got over the line in a cagey affair.  A strong debut for Washington Sundar in the first innings (5-76) led the way as Northants were restricted to 235, but they would have felt extremely confident after bowling out Lancs for 132, Jack White leading the way (5-14).  But after another strong effort with the ball from the Lancashire openers Tom Bailey (4-65) and Will Williams (5-41), they ended up victors led by Josh Bohannon (103) and a strong 7th wicket partnership between Williams and Sundar led Lancs to victory by 4 wickets.

Rain the winner at Taunton

Somerset looked in a good position to put one over Yorkshire but no play on Day 4 due to rain stopped any chance of a victory.  A century from captain Tom Abell (116) led Somerset to 424, despite Dom Bess' 4-68.  Yorkshire struggled in reply despite Tom Kohler-Cadmore's (100) efforts, but rain got in the way before Somerset could finish their innings.

Worrall and Jacks dominate for Surrey

An outstanding performance from Dan Worrall with the ball (11-122) and a dominant effort from Will Jacks (150*) led Surrey to a comfortable victory over Essex.  The Essex batters never looked comfortable at the crease against a strong Surrey bowling attack, with the exception of some rearguard resistance from Adam Rossington (100), failing to get over 300 in either innings.  Worrall's movement with the ball was the undoing for most of the batters, and Jacks with the bat was the sole Surrey performance with no other player getting over 40 throughout either innings, but his 150* proved to be the difference between the two teams.

Denly's 141 proves the difference in Kent win

Kent's 2nd innings efforts with the bat were the difference against Warwickshire, running out winners by 177 runs.  Despite being bowled out for 165 mainly thanks to Oliver Hannon-Dalby (6-40), Kents bowlers gave them the momentum behind Naveep Saini's 5-7 before posting 384 to give Warwickshire requiring a mammoth effort to get over line.  Joe Denly looked at his best for his 141 and was well supported by Jordan Cox (79).  Matthew Milnes (4-11) confirmed the result, bowling out Warks for 147.

Division Two 

Duckett and Hameed shine in draw

Ben Duckett (241) and Haseeb Hameed (196) shared a phenomenal 402 run partnership as Notts were denied the chance to convert a win over Derbyshire thanks in part to rain and strong resistance from the Derbyshire batters.  In reply of 618, Derbyshire fell short of the total by 300 runs, with Brooke Guest (109) shining.  A dogged opening partnership off 161 runs in 66 overs from Harry Came (70 off 193 balls) and Luis Reece (86 off 237) meant Derbyshire were able to hold on for a draw at the Incora County Ground.

Pujara leading from the front

Sussex would have felt confident in getting a result against Middlesex after an impressive 231 from captain Cheteshwar Pujara led his team to 523.  Middlesex came back strongly at Lord's, posting 485 in reply behind John Simpson (109).  Bradley Currie will be delighted with his County Championship debut, taking 6-93.  Sussex were wobbling at 96-7 to give the home side a sniff, but a maiden FC half century from Ari Karvelas was enough to secure the draw.


Northeast breaks records as Glamorgan pull off remarkable win 

Wiaan Mulder (156) was in fine touch for Leicestershire as they got off to a fine start against Glamorgan, posting 584. However, an incredible fightback from Glamorgan, led by a phenomenal knock from Sam Northeast was the highlight. He scored 410*, to break countless records and now stands as the third highest ever County Championship total, and the highest individual total for a Glamorgan player, being the only one to pass 400. As Northeast, in partnership with Chris Cooke who ended on 191* they saw Glamorgan to 795/5, and declared at lunch. The turnaround continued for Glamorgan, as they bowled Leicestershire out for 184, in 60 overs to take the win on a dramatic final day.
