Cricket news - Anderson headlines bowlers' day at Old Trafford
Northamptonshire v Sussex
Ben Brown (153*), Sussex's captain, and Chris Jordan (158*) composed hundreds and added a record unbeaten seventh wicket stand of 302 as Sussex ended Day 1 of their second division match against Northamptonshire in a strong position at 370/6.
Sussex, who were inserted into bat, found themselves precariously placed at 68 for 6. Ben Sanderson, the ever-reliable seamer, was the wrecker-in-chief by picking up three scalps. Nathan Buck, Jamie Overton and Luck Procter also picked a scalp each. At that stage, Jordan Brown joined forces to not just help Sussex recover but pilot them to a position of dominance.
Brown cracked 20 boundaries in his innings while Jordan smacked 24 fours. For the first time in the last 117 years, a pair had stitched a seventh-wicket stand in excess of 300 for Sussex in first class cricket. If the pair adds another 43 runs, it would turn out to be the record for the highest seventh wicket stand in England.
Brief scores: Sussex 370/6 in 96 overs (Chris Jordan 158*, Ben Brown 153*; Ben Sanderson 3-71) vs Northamptonshire.
Lancashire v Worcestershire
James Anderson and Wayne Parnell shared the limelight on the first day of the Division 2 game between Lancashire and Worcestershire at Old Trafford. On a track where wickets fell in bunches, the home side finished with 88 for 5, still trailing by 84.
After Lancashire opted to bowl, Anderson and Graham Onions ran through the heart of the visitors' batting unit to leave them in all kinds of trouble at 38 for 7. In a marathon 12-over spell, Anderson perhaps reserved his best for George Rhodes, the No. 3 batsman, with a picture-perfect inswinger to shatter the stumps.
However, Parnell gave a glimpse of his batting prowess with a gritty 63 to take his side to a score of some respectability. Joe Leach also played his part with a quickfire 36 before becoming Anderson's fifth victim. Eventually, Tom Bailey wrapped up the innings by cleaning up Parnell.
Parnell also snared three vital scalps to ensure the visitors would remain in the hunt. The hosts would be hoping for Liam Livingstone (17*) to make an impact on Day 2.
Brief scores: Worcestershire 172 (Wayne Parnell 63; James Anderson 5-25) lead Lancashire 88/5 in 36.4 overs (Haseeb Hameed 29; Wayne Parnell 3-19) by 84 runs.
Derbyshire v Glamorgan
Charlie Hemphrey and Billy Root notched up fifties to lift Glamorgan to 214/4 in 68 overs, still needing another 164 runs to overhaul Derbyshire's first innings total at the County ground, Derby.
After bundling out Derbyshire for 378, Hemphrey anchored Glamorgan's innings. He also found support from Nicholas Selman, David Lloyd and Root. At the fag end of the day, Logan van Beek, the former Netherlands allrounder, removed Hemphrey to peg the home side back. Earlier, Anuj Dal, batting at No. 8, had accumulated a vital hand of 64 to propel Derbyshire to a score close to 400. Lukas Carey plucked four scalps for Glamorgan.
Brief scores: Derbyshire 378 (Luis Reece 111; Lukas Carey 4-61) lead Glamorgan 214/4 in 68 overs (Charlie Hemphrey 75; Luis Reece 1-26) by 164 runs.
Durham v Gloucestershire
On a day where 15 wickets fell, Gloucestershire edged ahead versus Durham at the Riverside Ground. David Payne, known for generating a decent burst of pace, finished with a four-fer for the visitors.
Durham, who were asked to bat, struggled to string together stands as they lost wickets at regular intervals to be bundled out for just 158. Jack Burnham (43) and Ben Raine (42), lower down the order, were the two mainstays of Durham's batting effort. Meanwhile, Payne returned impressive figures of 4 for 40. However, Matt Salisbury, the medium pacer, gave Durham hopes of a fightback by bagging three wickets late in the day as Gloucestershire were reduced to 120 for 5 at stumps.
Brief scores: Durham 158 (Jack Burnham 43, Ben Raine 42; David Payne 4-40) lead Gloucestershire 120/5 (James Bracey 35; Matt Salisbury 3-18) by 38 runs.
