Surrey v Kent: Leaning and Cox aim to avoid collapse on Day 1
The last time Jack Leaning and Jordan Cox played together, they managed an unbeaten 77 for the fifth wicket against Hampshire. Today, they’re hoping to repeat that performance as Surrey takes on Kent at The Oval. With just over 90 hours between their previous match and this one, there’s no doubt these two batsmen are ready to give it their all.
Sussex v Glamorgan: Ollie Robinson’s exhibition of seam bowling
Ollie Robinson is having an incredible morning against Glamorgan. With four wickets already under his belt, he’s well on his way to yet another five-wicket haul in the Championship season. His rhythm has been impeccable so far and his ability to hit the right area around off-stump simply outstanding.
Worcs v Leics: Matthew Waite claims Handscomb’s wicket with a perfect delivery
Peter Handscomb had only faced five balls before being dismissed by Worcestershire seamer Matthew Waite today. Playing slightly across the line proved costly for the Australian batsman who got caught behind due to some away swing from Waite. This early loss will put pressure on others in the team as Leicestershire try bounce back after losing several quick wickets this morning.
Hants v Northants: A tight first session ends with Northamptonshire taking control
In what was expected to be a run-fest of a day at Ageas Bowl, Northamptonshire bowlers have done well to pull things back after a shaky start by dismissing 3 Hampshire batsmen before lunch. Leg-spinners Alex Russell and Mason Crane could come into play later in the day as this pitch may get tricky for batting.
Gloucs v Durham: Zaman Akhter struggles on his debut
Playing first-class cricket can be tough, something that Gloucestershire’s Zaman Akhter is finding out the hard way. He’s failed to make much of an impact so far in the game with David Bedingham taking him on for four already. At 0-34 from five overs, it seems like he has a long way to go; but there’s always time to turn things around.
Middlesex v Somerset: Bartlett and Hildreth look set for big innings
The Middlesex bowling attack has been unable to penetrate through George Bartlett and James Hildreth so far today. Both players will likely aim to build their individual scores up before enjoying a feast at Lord’s while still being unbeaten until then.
Notts v Essex: Stuart Broad back in action
After missing out last week due to injury, Stuart Broad returns for Nottinghamshire against Essex today. In his second spell of the morning session, he starts with a maiden over against Tom Westley putting pressure on him right away.
Sussex v Glamorgan: Neser joins Robinson at crease
New bat Michael Neser managed two quick runs off Ollie Robinson who continues his incredible form taking two wickets this morning already making it 18 wickets in just five Championship matches – certainly one of the most impressive performances by any player this season!
