Cricket news - Clinical Hampshire register big win over Warwickshire

Fidel Edwards picked up a three-wicket haul in the second innings

Hampshire vs Warwickshire

It just needed an hour after lunch on Friday (17 May) for Hampshire to wrap up proceedings as they registered a crushing 314-run win over Warwickshire to record their second victory of the season.

Resuming at 42 for 2, the home team lost Robert Yates off the second ball of the day and suffered further blows in the next five overs as they lost two wickets for one run to be reduced to 43 for 5.

There were brief spells of resistance from Alex Thomson and the last wicket pair of Jeetan Patel and Oliver Hannon-Dalby, but the target was too tall to induce any hopes of a comeback. Hampshire took almost 13 overs to dislodge the last wicket stand and complete their second win in three Championship games this season.

Brief scores: Hampshire 354 (Tom Alsop 150, Aneurin Donald 75; Oliver Hannon-Dalby 4-69) and 302/5 decl. (Rilee Rossouw 76, Jeetan Patel 2-107) beat Warwickshire 233 (Dominic Sibley 109; Kyle Abbott 4-50) and 109 (Robert Yates 21; Fidel Edwards 3-36) by 314 runs.

Somerset v Surrey

Only 34 overs of play was possible on the final day as bad weather had the final say in Taunton, forcing the game, between Somerset and Surrey, to end in a draw. The visiting Surrey team added 103 runs to their overnight score and lost three wickets while at it. All-rounder Will Jacks compiled an impressive fifty, and along with handy contributions from the lower-middle order Surrey's lead swelled up to 237 before bad light halted play in the second session.

With the game ending in a draw, Surrey gained 12 points while Somerset managed 11 which proved to be just enough to dethrone Yorkshire from the top of the pile. That said, both teams have not lost a Championship game this season thus far.

Brief scores: Surrey 380 (Rory Burns 107, Dean Elgar 103; Lewis Gregory 3-52) and 255 for 8 (Rory Burns 78; Lewis Gregory 2-73) drew with Somerset 398 all-out (Lewis Gregory 129*; Conor McKerr 3-94)

Kent v Yorkshire

Ben Coad claimed his seventh five-wicket haul in First Class cricket as Yorkshire sealed a morale-boosting 172-run win over Kent in Canterbury on Friday (May 17). Kent started off well with a gritty partnership between the overnight duo of Fred Klassen and Daniel Bell-Drummond which lasted the entire first session, encouraging hopes of a draw. The complexion of the game, however, changed completely three overs into the post-lunch session as Kent lost two quick wickets that included a seven-ball duck from captain Heino Kuhn.

Following Kuhn's dismissal, Ollie Robinson and Alex Blake displayed a bit of resistance but the innings eventually fizzled out as Coad cleaned up the tail to hand a second successive win for his side. This is Kent's second loss in three games whilst Yorkshire are yet to taste defeat this season.

Brief scores: Yorkshire 210 (Harry Brook 29; Matt Milnes 3-63) and 469 (Gary Ballance 159; Mitchell Claydon 3-83) beat Kent 296 (Ollie Robinson 103, Zak Crawley 81; Ben Coad 3-66) and 211 all-out (Daniel Bell-Drummond 41; Ben Coad 6-52) by 172 runs.
