Cricket news - Labuschagne stars again as Glamorgan open account
Labuschagne scored a measured 59 in the chase against Essex.
Glamorgan vs Essex
After smashing an unbeaten 93 in a losing cause in Glamorgan's opening game of the competition, Marnus Labuschagne starred again to help his side open their account in Cardiff against Essex. Labuschagne bowled three tight overs conceding only 17 runs while also picking up a wicket that helped Glamorgan restrict Essex to a moderate 153/6. In the run chase, even though the home side lost an early wicket, Labuschagne and Nicholas Selman were involved in a 110-run second wicket stand to blow Essex away. While Selman made 65, the Australian batsman made a measured 59 off 47 balls as Glamorgan completed the chase with an over to spare.
Brief scores: Essex 153/6 in 20 overs (William Buttleman36; Ruaidhri Smith 2-13) lost to Glamorgan 156/3 in 19 overs (Nicholas Selman 65, Marnus Labuschagne 59) by 7 wickets
Worcestershire vs Lancashire
A disciplined bowling effort from Worcestershire helped them brush aside Lancashire with ease in Worcester. Opting to bat first, Lancashire put up only 132 runs on the board despite losing only four wickets. While Finn Allen and Alex Davies departed early, Liam Livingstone and Jos Buttler found the going tough and struggled to press the accelerator. Livingstone made a 26-ball 25 whereas Buttler uncharacteristically departed for a 46-ball 55. In response, Riki Wessels and Brett D'Oliveira put on 79 inside nine overs to set the tone. Moeen Ali made just 9 after Wessels' departure but D'Oliveira remained unbeaten on 61 to see his side home with 16 balls to spare.
Brief scores: Lancashire 132/4 in 20 overs (Jos Buttler 55; Charlie Morris 2-25) lost to Worcestershire 133/2 in 17.2 overs (Brett D'Oliveira 65*, Riki Wessels 40; Matthew Parkinson 2-32) by 8 wickets
Leicestershire vs Durham
Ned Eckersley scored a sparkling half-century and shared a 62-run stand for the ninth wicket with Liam Trevaskis as Durham snatched an incredible come from behind against hosts Leicestershire. Chasing 169, Durham had slipped to 108 for 8 in the 14th over before the pair got together for the rearguard. Fortunately for them Arron Lilley, the best bowler from Leicestershire finished his quota of overs (3 for 26). The pressure of closing out the game fell to Naveen-ul-Haq, who was taken for 22 runs with Eckersley finishing the game and completing his half-century with a six. Earlier in the day, Scott Steel's half-century had helped Leicestershire post 168, a total they almost defended before the late Durham suckerpunch.
Brief scores: Leicestershire168/9 in 20 overs (Scott Steel 53, Arron Lilley 31; Matty Potts 3-27) lost to Durham 170/8 in 19 overs (Ned Eckersley 50*, Liam Trevaskis 30*; Arron Lilley 3-26) by 8 wickets
Derbyshire vs Warwickshire
Dan Mousley scored a measured half-century as Warwickshire overcame a top-order wobble to chase down 160 for their second win in three games and move up to third in the North Group. When captain Will Rhodes fell, Warwickshire were 18 for 3 in the fourth over. Mousley stitched a 55-run stand for the fourth wicket with Sam Hain helping put the chase back on track. Smaller but vital partnerships followed with Michael Burgess and Carlos Brathwaite before Chris Woakes came in and finished off the chase with an over to spare. Earlier in the evening, Woakes, Brathwaite and Jacob Lintott took two wickets each to keep Derbyshire from kicking on to make a big score.
Brief scores: Derbyshire 160/8 in 20 overs (FJ Hudson-Prentice 41; Carlos Brathwaite 2-24) lost to Warwickshire 161/7 in 19 overs (Dan Mousley 56; Matthew Critchley 2-21) by 3 wickets
Northamptonshire vs Nottinghamshire
An incredible century from Joe Clarke helped Nottinghamshire defeat Northamptonshire in a high-scoring contest in Northampton. Opener Clarke went on a rampage smashing 11 sixes in the game and was dismissed only in the final over of the game for a 65-ball 136. It was clearly a one-man show as he hardly found support at the other end with eight other batters combining to contribute only 67 off 57 balls. The hosts did storm back in the chase despite losing the top order with just 43 on the board as Joshua Cobb and Rob Keogh were involved in a century stand. But losing both the set batsmen in quick succession at the death made matters tough as the visitors closed out the contest to seal a 14-run win.
Brief scores: Nottinghamshire214/7 in 20 overs (Joe Clarke 136; Wayne Parnell 2-30) beatNorthamptonshire200/7 in 20 overs (Joshua Cobb 62, Rob Keogh 45; Jake Ball 3-58) by14 runs
