Cricket news - County Division I: Sam Northeast century powers Hampshire
Nottinghamshire vs Yorkshire, Nottingham
Yorkshire made a fine comeback with the ball, only to see it thwarted as they fumbled with the bat to surrender the advantage to the hosts. Resuming at 324/5, Nottinghamshire could only add 84 runs to their overnight score. Duanne Olivier, their Kolpak recruit, started off on a bright note, taking five wickets for 96, while captain Steven Patterson took four for 78.
Yorkshire started well during their reply. Harry Brook stormed off to a brisk start, hitting 30 off 29 balls. Adam Lyth held the innings together with 81, but the fall of regular wickets pulled the visitors back. Much of the hopes will now rest on Joe Root, who remained unbeaten on 56 at Stumps.
Brief Scores: Nottinghamshire 408 (Joe Clarke 112, Ben Slater 76, Duanne Olivier 5-96, Steven Patterson 4-78) lead Yorkshire 206/5 (Adam Lyth 81, Joe Root 56*, Luke Fletcher 2-42) by 202 runs
Hampshire vs Essex, Southampton
Hampshire took control of proceedings at Southampton thanks to Sam Northeast's massive hundred and important contributions from the middle order.
Resuming at 303/4, Northeast notched up his hundred early, getting his season off to a flier. His 165-run stand for the fifth wicket with Liam Dawson helped Hampshire set themselves a solid platform. The lower middle-order all chipped with cameos as the home team declared at 525/8.
In reply, with play being hampered by bad light regularly, Essex lost the wicket of Nick Browne early to reach stumps at 25/1.
Brief Scores: Hampshire 525/8 (Sam Northeast 169, Rilee Rossouw 76; Matthew Quinn 3-104) lead Essex 25/1 by 500 runs
Somerset vs Kent, Taunton
After the first day was washed out, Day 2 sprung to life in Taunton with Mitchell Claydon taking a fifer enroute to Somerset being bowled out for 171.
Tom Abell, Somerset's captain, was his side's best batsman as he hit 49, but the day belonged to Kent. Claydon was well supported by Harry Podmore and Matt Milnes, who combined to pick the remaining five wickets and leave the homeside in trouble.
Kent, in reply, started off well, getting to 71 without any hiccups, but the loss of Zak Crawley and Podmore late in the day spoilt it somewhat for Kent.
Brief Scores: Somerset 171 (Tom Abell 49, Mitchell Claydon 5-46) lead Kent 84/2 by 87 runs
