Worcestershire relegated back to Division Two
Cricket news - Worcestershire relegated back to Division Two
Essex vs Worcestershire
James Porter took 11 wickets in the match to pilot Essex to an innings and 129-run win against Worcestershire in Chelmsford, on Thursday(September 20). The visitors were bowled out for 251 in their second innings.
Worcestershire resumed on their overnight score of 140 for 4 and soon lost the wicket of Joe Clarke for 74. Simon Harmer, Samuel Cook and Porter then ran through the lower order to ensure the home side's easy win. Wayne Parnell, batting at No. 9, cracked an unbeaten fifty, but by then the result of the match was more or less a foregone conclusion. Porter and Harmer took four wickets each in the second essay. Ravi Bopara also played a crucial role in the home side's win with a hundred in the first innings.
As a result of the defeat, Worcestershire have been relegated to Division Two. The West Midlands County, who have a relatively young side, were promoted to Division One only last year.
Brief scores: Worcestershire 94 (Joe Clarke 28; James Porter 7-41) and 251 (Joe Clarke 74; James Porter 4-57) lost to Essex 474/7 decl. (Ravi Bopara 133*; Ed Barnard 3-63) by an innings and 129 runs.
Yorkshire vs Hampshire
Yorkshire progressed to 287 for 5 in the second innings against Hampshire on Day 3 in Leeds before rain played spoilsport and stumps were drawn. The hosts now lead by a healthy 314 runs.
Adam Lyth, who resumed on his overnight score of 60, remained unbeaten on 134. He also stitched a vital stand of 133 with Jonathan Tattersall (43). Eventually, Liam Dawson ended the threatening stand by dismissing Tattersall. Tim Bresnan added 22 more runs with Lyth before Lunch was taken. During the break, it started to rain and due to persistent rain, play was called off for the day.
Brief scores: Yorkshire 184 & 287/5 (Adam Lyth 134*; Liam Dawson 3-85) lead Hampshire 157 (James Vince 25, Gareth Berg 25; Tim Bresnan 5-28) by 314 runs.
Somerset v Surrey
Somerset ended Day 3 of their County Championship fixture against Surrey at 168 for 3 in the second innings, still 171 runs away from making Surrey bat again.
Somerset, who began the day at 122 for 9 in the first essay, were soon bowled out for 146. Morne Morkel and Conor McKerr, who was loaned out to Derbyshire last season, took six wickets between them.
Somerset, who were subsequently made to follow on, gave a better account of themselves in the second innings. At one point of time, the hosts were struggling at 4 for 2, but Azhar Ali (61 not out) and James Hildreth (60) made useful contributions to lift the side. Tom Curran took two scalps while Morkel snared one wicket for Surrey.
Brief scores: Somerset 146 (Tom Banton 30; Morne Morkel 3-19) and 168/3 (f/o) (Azhar Ali 61*, James Hildreth 60; Tom Curran 2-44) trail Surrey 485 (Dean Elgar 110, Mark Stoneman 85; Tom Abell 3-52) by 171 runs
