Cricket news - Warwickshire struggling despite good bowling show

Oliver Hannon-Dalby snared a five-for on Day 1 for Warwickshire

Somerset vs Warwickshire, Taunton

Oliver Hannon-Dalby's five-wicket haul shot down Somerset for just 209 as 17 wickets fell on the opening day. Josh Davey scored 36 to lift the side over 200 but Craig Overton returned the favour as the visitors ended the day struggling at 110 for 7. Somerset never really felt at ease as they continued to lose wickets before a 58-run stand for the eighth wicket between Davey and Steven Davies.

Warwickshire too had a poor start as Will Rhodes was run out for eight. Overton nipped out three to leave them reeling at 79 for 5.

Brief scores: Somerset 209 (Oliver Hannon-Dalby 5-18) lead Warwickshire 110/7 (Craig Overton 3-25) by 99 runs.

Hampshire vs Nottinghamshire, Newport

Joe Weatherley (66) and Oliver Soames (44), the openers, made handy contributions but Hampshire lost their way after the 112-run opening stand to end the day on 288 for 6. Jake Ball broke the opening stand with the wicket of the former as the hosts slipped from 112 for 1 to 159 for 3.

Ball bagged two and so did Steven Mullaney to keep the hosts in check in a day where both teams fought hard for ascendancy.

Brief scores: Hampshire 288/6 (Joe Weatherley 66) vs Nottinghamshire.

Kent vs Surrey, Beckenham

Will Jacks's fighting ton, batting at No. 7, lifted Surrey to 420 for 9 against Kent with Scott Borthwick (96) and Rikki Clarke scoring half-centuries. Jacks made 120 off 194 to help the side recover from 65 for 5. Borthwick and Jacks made 175 for the sixth wicket before the latter collaborated with Clarke to add 74 more.

Clake ended unbeaten on 87 and some late hitting gave the side more than they had bargained for.

Brief scores: Surrey 420/9 (Will Jacks 120, Scott Borthwick 96; Wiaan Mulder 4-103) vs Kent.
