    Eagles fly and Roses are in bloom as the stars align

    Essex climb to the top of the Championship while there was nerve-jangler at Taunton on a dramatic day four in the latest round of matches.

    EAGLES FLY TO THE TOP 

    Essex flew to the top of Division One with a comfortable eight wicket win over Surrey thanks to Tom Westley, who scored his second hundred of the season, to complete a 253-run chase. Victory sees the Eagles' exceptional form continues, having now only lost one game all season in both the County Championship and Royal London One Day Cup.

    WHITE ROSE BLOSSOMS
    Yorkshire went into the final day of their match at Taunton with Somerset as underdogs, with the hosts needing 161 for victory and six wickets still intact. But Gary Ballance’s side fought back hard and, despite half-centuries from Steve Davies and Adam Hose, dismissed the Somerset tail to win a thriller by three runs to kick-off wild celebrations.
    STARS ALIGN FOR DAY-NIGHT
    Championship sides will have an array of England internationals to select from when the day-night matches use the pink Dukes ball at the end go the month. Test captain Joe Root, wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow, all-rounder Ben Stokes, and seamer Jimmy Anderson are just four of the players available for counties to pick from for the fixtures scheduled for 26-29 June.
    DAVIES DICTATES AS LANCASHIRE WIN

    Lancashire secured an eight wicket victory over Middlesex, elevating them into third in Division One and halting the visitors' unbeaten run. The Red Rose were helped by wicketkeeper Alex Davies, who was involved in 10 wickets, taking nine catches and one stumping. 

    WELLS FINDS THE FOXES WEAKNESS 
    Luke Wells' unbeaten 90 from 190 balls helped Sussex cruise to a five wicket victory over Leicestershire, despite trailing by 56 runs after the first innings. The 26-year-old, who averages 108 across his six innings this year, hit two sixes and 11 fours, including the cut behind square to secure victory. The win means Sussex now sit fifth in the Division Two table.
