    Top Five: Specsavers County Championship 6 July

    Middlesex win a thriller at Edgbaston as Overton bowls Somerset to first win

    Burn baby burn 

    Rory Burns, Surrey’s stand-in captain, has been in scintillating form at a scorching Kia Oval this week. The opening batsman carried his bat in the first innings and when Hampshire enforced the follow on he returned to the middle to score a further 68. Even more impressive was the fact Burns' was on the field from Monday morning until he got out just before 4:20pm on Thursday. 

    Somerset do love to be beside the sea side 

    Somerset claimed a surprising but comprehensive first win of the season against a depleted Yorkshire side at Scarborough. The victory came thanks to a stunning performance from Craig Overton who took nine wickets in the match, he was backed up nicely by fellow bowlers Jack Leach and Lewis Gregory. The win alongside Warwickshire's defeat means Somerset climb off the bottom of the table.

    Mighty Middlesex

    Middlesex claimed an important win against Warwickshire to give them some breathing space between themselves and the bottom two in Division 1. At the start of the day, it appeared Middlesex had it in the bag, but a strong bowling performance from Warwickshire saw it go down to the final wicket. Despite the wobble, Tim Murtagh and Tom Helm guided Middlesex home to claim a second victory on the bounce.

    Dominant Durham

    Durham took a commanding victory at Queen's Park, thanks to Jack Burnham's 93 not out and a quick fire 62 from Ryan Pringle. It’s their second victory of the season and it also means they are now unbeaten in four Championship matches. The biggest encouragement for Durham fans is for the first time this season they have moved off the bottom of the table. 

    Batting Paradise 

    Temperatures have been rising across the UK this week but no more than at The Spitfire Ground where the batsman have caused the bowlers to sweat. Kent started the game by notching up 701 runs in the first innings, just under half their runs coming from the bat of Sean Dickson. Northants responded in style with Ben Duckett, Max Holden and Adam Rossington all notching up hundreds to help the visitors reach 568, unsurprisingly the game was drawn.
