    Spin twins reign & Notts too hot

    Crane & Dawson spin it to win it, Virdi makes a splash on debut and Notts look unstoppable

    Three-day results were the name of the game on Sunday, while a few interesting deliveries caught the eye, too. Relive the best of the day’s events…


    Is there any stopping Nottinghamshire in Division Two? On this evidence, probably not. The Trent Bridge side thrashed Gloucestershire by an innings and 50 runs within two-and-a-half days to record their fourth victory in five 2017 matches. Stuart Broad took two wickets but Steven Mullaney was the hero of the hour, notching his maiden first-class five-wicket haul. Well bowled, sir.


    It might not quite have been Shane Warne to Mike Gatting, but Amar Virdi's maiden first-class wicket was certainly special. Surrey’s 18-year-old debutant absolutely ripped one through James Foster’s gate with his second delivery of the day. The celebrations were pretty special too! Remember the name…


    From the sublime to the ridiculous as promising young leg-spinner Mason Crane looked absolutely devastated to get a wicket with what can only be described as the rankest of rank long hops. Dean Elgar was the unlucky batsman to be bowled by the ball in question - suffice to say the internet found it pretty hilarious, though!


    It wasn’t all rank long-hops from Hampshire, though, as they wrapped up a highly impressive three-day victory over Somerset. With 15 wickets falling on each of the first two days, it was always going to come down to Sunday’s action and whether Somerset could reach 259 runs before the visitors took 10 wickets. It was to be the latter as Mason Crane’s five-for and Liam Dawson’s four scalps spun Hampshire to their second win of the season.


    ‘Mine, mine, mine… keeper’s!’ It’s a drop for the ages from Glamorgan’s Marchant de Lange...
