County cricket: Somerset slip up at Hants, Lancs on top of Yorks – as it happened

Last modified: 06: 18 PM GMT+0

Worcestershire 288-6 at close of play against title-chasing Surrey, Lancashire 105 for 0 after Yorkshire are all out for 209

Tanya Aldred's roundup

Mid-September: long shadows, short days – and a jangle of wickets. A very loud jangle – a racket perhaps – 116 in all – during a day of hapless batting, swing and nip around the shires.

With only three rounds left in this year’s County Championship, points means prizes. In the Roses relegation battle at Headingley, Tom Kohler-Cadmore saved Yorkshire’s pride with a rumbustious 105 not out, which was more than the rest of the side cobbled together. Graham Onions took four for 76 and Richard Gleeson, on debut, three for 74. In reply Lancashire cruised to 105 without loss – fifty for Alex Davies.

Worcestershire’s batting pulled out all the stops against champions-elect Surrey, with Ross Whitely falling just short of a hundred, and fifties for Tom Fell and Ed Barnard.

Fifteen wickets fell at Trent Bridge, where Jamie Porter’s four for 50 helped dismiss Nottinghamshire for less than 200. Lyndon James took three wickets on his debut in Essex’s reply, including end-of-season-signing Murali Vijay. And 19 wickets tumbled at the Ageas Bowl, where second-placed Somerset’s slender hopes of the title slipped further adrift when they were bowled out for 106, with Kyle Abbott taking five for 31. Hampshire batted their way to a slender lead of 36 thanks to a half-century from Sam Northeast.

The cry of “timber” was even louder in Division Two. Only Warwickshire thrived, 190 for three at the close thanks to a century from Dom Sibley. That gave them a lead of 90 over Leicestershire. The other Curran brother, Ben, made fifty for Northants, as did Saif Zaib in their 255. Derbyshire lost two early wickets in reply.

Nineteen wickets went down at Lord’s, where Darren Stevens did it for the evergreens in front of selector James Taylor, with four wickets and a fifty. Kent, in the promotion mix, had inched their way to a lead of 28 by the close. At Sophia Gardens Gloucestershire moved within four runs of Glamorgan’s first innings 137, in which David Payne and Craig Miles shared four wickets apiece. Rain and bad-light curtailed play at Chester-le-Street, but Division One hopefuls Sussex still had time to take seven Durham wickets, David Wiese three for 12.

Close of play scores

Division One

Yorkshire 209 all out;Lancashire 105/0
Somerset, 106 all out; Hampshire 142/9
Nottinghamshire 177 all out; Essex 133/5
Worcestershire 288/6; Surrey

Division Two

Durham 92/7; Sussex
Glamorgan 137 all out; Gloucestershire 133/5
Leicestershire 100 all out; Warwickshire 190/3
Middlesex 161 all out; Kent 189/9
Northamptonshire 255; Derbyshire 60/2

Well, what a day was that - 116 wickets (some sort of record?) and just the two centuries - Dom Sibley, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, raise your bats. Somerset’s slip-up at The Ageas Bowl puts the Championship pennant more firmly in Surrey’s grasp, despite Worcestershire’s plucky defiance at New Road. Lancashire, meanwhile, are on top in the Roses relegation battle at Headingley.

In Division Two, the promotion candidates remain in the mix. Sussex did their very best against the elements (and Durham), Kent had the best of a 19-wicket beer match at Lord’s, and Warwickshire already have a lead of 90 over Leicestershire - keep your eye on Jonathan Trott tomorrow. That’s it from me - have a lovely evening everyone.

And Grant Stewart having fun here in the late afternoon sun, 41 not out.

And news from the ECB: the hundred trial games will take place at Loughborough on 14, 15 and 27 September for the women and at Trent Bridge on 16, 17 and 18 September for the men. .

“Across the six days, a number of scenarios and sequences of play will be explored, focused on the 100-ball format. After each day, players will be asked to consider their feedback on three key areas: flow and duration of the game, tactical innovation and player enjoyment.”

I’m loving the idea of flow feedback. It will, of course, involve charts?

And farewell Darren Stevens, the wiliest oldest pro in the land, bowled for 64 as Kent near parity with 11 overs left.

Lancashire and Worcestershire defying the doubters. Worcestershire 270/6 - Barnard a 10 x four, 54 fighting the good fight after Whitely was out for 91. Lancashire (whisper it) 80/0 - Alex Davies 52, Karl Brown 28.

And suddenly, except at the County Ground where Derbyshire are 12/2, batting seems to have got a bit easier.

This I’ve been reliably informed is a quintessential Middlesex day. Not much with a bat and then fail to bowl the tail out. But what can you say about Darren Stevens (46 not out and 4-44)? Let me count the ways: stalwart, old pro, warhorse, doughty...(help me out here)

Play is abandoned for the day at Chester-le-Street, with Durham 92 for 7.

A wicket for Nottinghamshire - Browne b Mullaney for 24. Essex 56/1. Worcestershire continue to be the surprise of the day - 217 for 5 against the soon-to-be -champs. Whitely now has his highest score of the season. Gloucestershire have lost a couple more, both to van der Gugten 81/4.

In other news, England have declared with a lead of 463.

Updated

Hampshire now 66/6 and Kent 82/7. There’s a SATs paper in there somewhere for next summer.

Bell out for 1 - you jinxed him you BTL with your talk of winter tours. Warwickshire 133/2.

Ross Whitely, what had he for breakfast? 64 not out against the might of Surrey. And it’s all gone quiet here at Lord’s too - not a wicket to fall since tea.

Just had a lovely wander around Lord’s at tea. All was as it should be - old men sitting on benches reading, pleasantly warm autumnal sunshine, beige-blazered gatemen guarding the door to the pavilion. But then the scoreboard - what devil this?

An lo, Lancashire have not yet lost a wicket at Headingley; nor Essex at Trent Bridge.

Durham are being saved by the rain.

Tea-time scores: 92 wickets fallen so far today!!!!!!

DIVISION ONE (39 wickets)

Yorkshire v Lancashire: Yorks 209 all out (Kohler-Cadmore 105 not out; Onions 4-76; Bailey 3-18)

Worcestershire v Surrey: Worcester 165/5 (Fell 69; Whitely 50 not out)

Nottinghamshire v Essex: Notts 177 all out (Porter 4-50)

Hampshire v Somerset: Somerset 106 all out (Abbott 5-31); Hampshire 59/4

DIVISION TWO (53 wickets)

Northamptonshire v Derbyshire: Northants 193/8 (Curran 51; Hughes 4-57)

Middlesex v Kent: Middlesex 161 all out (Fuller 37 not out; Stevens 4-44); Kent 54/6 (Fuller 3-16)

Leicestershire v Warwickshire: Leicestershire 100 all out (Barker 3/23, Stone 3/24); Warwickshire 123 for 0 (Sibley 81 not out)

Glamorgan v Gloucestershire: Glamorgan 137 all out (Cooke 60; Miles 4-42, Payne 4-25) Gloucs 65/2

Durham v Sussex: Durham 92/7 (Wiese 3-12)

Updated

Just before tea, Kent lose another 39/4, a super catch by Eskinazi behind the stumps to dismiss Bell-Drummond.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore does it. Bravo! A hundred on a day that no-one else has (yet) got near (best effort, Fell and Sibley* 69). Yorkies 201/9.

*not out

Cook out at last, for a (smallish) Daddy.

Meanwhile, Middlesex lose another here at Lord’s - 29/3. 13 wickets in the day here, and at the Ageas - Hampshire 37/3

Does it count as a daddy? On balance, probably! Cook bows out with his 13th highest score in 291 Test innings #EngvInd pic.twitter.com/wCVcVNUJYk

While I was looking up Kohler-Cadmore...

“An outstanding schoolboy player, Kohler-Cadmore won a cricket scholarship to Malvern College and amassed 1,409 runs at an average in excess of 100 in his final year. He subsequently won the 2014 Young Wisden Schools Cricketer of the Year.

“Brought up through Yorkshire’s age-group teams - his name is inherited from his mother’s German origins - where he broke run-scoring records previously held by Michael Vaughan...” (CRICINFO)

...Brooks is out. Kohler-Cadmore 97 not out, enter Coad. Yorks 187/9.

Another wicket for Surrey - Tom Fell out after a smashing 69, lbw to Rikki Clarke. Ah, Denly. It wasn’t to be, lbw to Finn for nine. Kent 20/2.

Kohler-Cadmore on the brink at Headingley - 94 out of Yorkshire’s 183/8.

Denly pushes forward at Bamber and it falls just short of slip. Middlesex 11/1. Hampshire 20/3, meanwhile Warwickshire kick back, 81-0.

A wicket at Lord’s, Dickson lbw Bamber for 8. Come on Denly! Down he comes, out through the little white pavilion gate, whirling his bat around.

Now Kent, this is your chance to inch towards promotion. Wishing Joe Denly luck, when he bats in front of James Taylor - winter tour spots up for grabs.

Matthew Waite goes first ball! Yorkshire 144-7 .

At Lord’s the groundsmen are brushing the pitch, short shadows following them off the ground, and the players are stretching on the outfield.

Updated

Bressie is out, for a duck. And that’s Middlesex all out - 9 batting points out of 60 this season I’m told.

I missed that Durham had started batting. At 33/3, they might rather they hadn’t. So today’s batting prize goes to Warwickshire - 34/0. Will any side make it past 200? And, for purely selfish purposes of my round-up later - can anyone nominate a Championship day where more than 85 wickets (April 14) fell?

Hampshire start well: 0/1...

Bressie lad in at Headingley, Yorks 138/5 but Kohler-Cadmore still there on 71. Some lower-order slogging by Finn has taken Middlesex past 150!

If only he can stay fit...

— Warwickshire CCC 🏏 (@WarwickshireCCC) September 10, 2018

In the higher plain of Division One: Somerset 106 all out - Abbot 5-31. Notts 117 for 8 - thanks to Luke Wood having a good slog. It is Tom Curran’s turn at New Road where Worcestershire stumble from 88/1 to 88/3. An unbeaten fifty for Tom Fell. And the Yorkies dig in: 33/4 has become 120/4 thanks to Kohler-Cadmore and Tattershall.

A brilliant catch by Darren Stevens off his own bowling at Lord’s. Middlesex 119 for 8. Leicester made it to three figures - but were promptly all out - three for Stone, three for Barker, two for Woakes. Warwickshire already 14/0. Glamorgan all out 137 - four for Miles, four for Payne.

Sussex’s day not going well. Especially considering how unhelpfully Middlesex are playing against Kent (though things have got a bit better, currently 119/7 with Rayner and Fuller both on double figures)

Congratulations to young Ben Curran, brother of Tom and Sam, in fact sandwiched between the two, 51 not out for Northamptonshire. Just dug out this prescient piece on the Currans by Vithushan Ehantharajah on cricinfo from 2016.

Very true. But did he want to be a huge star?

Imagine how huge a star Alistair Cook might have been had he not spent his entire Test career behind a TV paywall.

— John Brewin (@JohnBrewin_) September 10, 2018

Somerset lose a post-prandial wicket (what did you do to them Lancashire?): Gregory for 2, a third for Abbot. Somerset 74 for 6. And Leicester stumble towards being all out for 100, 96/9, a third for Olly Stone.

In case you didn’t catch it at lunch, here’s is Cooky’s magic moment:

Alastair Cook - what a wonderfully happy farewell. Good luck to him. And lucky Essex get him for the next three years.

Now to the nitty-gritty of the County Championship where 39 wickets fell in the morning:

DIVISION ONE (15 wickets)

Yorkshire v Lancashire: Yorks 86/4 (Kohler-Cadmore 44 not out; Bailey 3-7)

Worcestershire v Surrey: Worcester 74/1 (Fell 41 not out)

Nottinghamshire v Essex: Notts 82/5

Hampshire v Somerset: Somerset 71/5

DIVISION TWO (24 wickets)

Northamptonshire v Derbyshire: Northants 96/3 (Curran 40 not out)

Middlesex v Kent: Middlesex 80/7 (Stevens 3-28)

Leicestershire v Warwickshire: Leicestershire 94/8 (Barker 3/23)

Glamorgan v Gloucestershire: Glamorgan 109/6 (Cooke 60; Miles 4-42)

Durham v Sussex: Durham 4-0. Bad light delayed play.

Somewhere in an Essex armchair, Graham Gooch is blubbing and saying "make it a daddy, Alastair"

Right, that’s lunch of a wicket-heavy morning. Scores to follow.

Read Gary Naylor’s wisdom here to read up on all you need to know for this round. But be quick! Another wicket falls here at Lord’s: Middlesex 80 for 7. Andersson lbw Podmore for 7.

Ah, just checked, my memory is playing tricks on me, four games were abandoned without a ball bowled on April 13. But on April 14, the second day of the season, 85 wickets fell - at 36 so far, before Durham have even got going, we’re in with a chance of beating that.

I’m pretty sure the first day of the season went something like this...

The autumn sun shines down, but the wickets tumble on. Middlesex batsman number six starts the long walk back to the pavilion. Morgan lbw for 1; Eskinazi gone for 16. Middlesex 73 for 6, close on the tail of Leicestershire’s 81 for 7 (Barker 3-23)

Middlesex lose another, alas Malan, for 16, a second for Stevens. Middx: 69/4. And some lovely news about Rahul Dravid - Matt Henry’s rival as Kent’s favourite ever overseas player?

Wonderful to read of how Hanuma Vihari called Rahul Dravid the day before his debut. That is what students do with good teachers. They share their joy. I am beginning to think Dravid's second innings might be as valuable to Indian cricket as his first.

Yorkshire 38/4; Worcester 48/1 (what is happening there?); Notts 66/3; Somerset 59 for 2.

Ok, this is going to be one of those arithmetic-heavy days - 26 wickets already gone this morning. Glamorgan on the high velt of 61/5; Leicestershire 46 for 6; Middlesex 56 for 3; Northants 64 for 2. Durham, I shouldn’t hurry into the fray.

Yorkies now 33 for 4: Lyth, Ballance, Brook, Raval in the Lancashire hot-pot. Tom Bailey 3-7.

Off topic but fascinating. Essex watchers, has Cook ever been out leaving the ball in County Cricket? Notts recovering slightly against Essex at Trent Bridge, 51/2.

Just been pointed out that Jennings has been out leaving the ball twice in two Tests but Cook has never been out leaving the ball. That is an unbelievable statement on his judgement. Every single ball he has left has not been on his stumps and he's faced more than 26,200 balls!

— Dean Wilson (@CricketMirror) September 10, 2018

Middlesex manufacture a run-out, Holden to a throw by Matt “golden arm” Henry, 43/3, and Eskinazi it turns out, is still here. Sorry brain crunching slowly into gear.

Ignoring tumbling wickets for one moment, I like this map. Most county cricket played in the land of the short vowel, no?

Should you be tempted by the Test (traitor!) , where Alastair Cook has passed fifty, there is no better commentary around than that of Rob Smyth on the OBO

Updated

Play due to start in ten minutes at Durham.

In the Roses battle, Jeet Raval and Harry Brook beating an early retreat for the Yorkies, 27/2. Notts have crash-landed their batting after last week, as Libby joins Brathwaite back in the pavilion. Two for Porter. And another here at Lord’s, Eskinazi out just as I eventually learn how to spell his name. Enter Malan.

Make that 21 for five...

Glamorgan now 17 for four. Come on Glammy! Dreaming back to those halcyon spring days when Khawaja gave the batting some backbone. Cook and Carlson gone too. Miles 3-12.

Sorry about the late start folks, but hey, it’s Monday morning. At 1030 the batsmen walked out, so of course some batsmen have already walked back in. Kraigg Brathwaite was out for a duck at Trent Bridge (Notts 15/1) and Trescothick, whose season has tended towards the leaden-footed since his injury, is an early wicket for Abbot (Somerset 30/1). Harry Dearden fell early for Leicestershire (21 for 1) and Connor Brown out for 1 as Glamorgan struggle.

At Durham the start has been delayed by bad light.

Here at Lord’s Middlesex are batting, which is lucky as their bowling is seriously weakened: Murtagh is out with an abscess and Harris is injured. And that’s a wicket, Gubbins for 17, Middlesex 27 for 1.

Preamble

Hello! And welcome to Lord’s, where the sun is peeping out and selector James Taylor is watching. We’re in the finishing straight now, just three rounds to go to mark the end of another year, the final disappearance of summer. This week we start on a Monday, to give the finalists a day’s rest before the Vitality Blast finals on Saturday. (A cynic might say that a Wednesday start should be sufficient)

This week Champions-elect Surrey could grab their first title since 2002. Their 43-point lead over Somerset means they only have to extend that by six – victory at New Road and Somerset failing to win at Hampshire would do the trick.

Meanwhile, at Headingley, Yorkshire and Lancashire meet for a Roses relegation punch-up, Bosworth eat your heart out. Lancashire’s storybook run of form – an unlikely run-chase at Southport and the tie! the tie! at Taunton have boosted their hopes, but they’re still only one point ahead of Yorkshire – and have played a game more.

In Division Two, Warwickshire, Kent and Sussex battle it out for the two promotion places.

DIVISION ONE

Hampshire v Somerset: Somerset need to win to remain in unlikely contention for their first Championship win, after the frustration of last week’s tie at Taunton. Kyle Abbott’s hat-trick in the win against Worcester last week mean Hampshire can breathe once more.

Nottinghamshire v Essex: Indian opener Murali Vijay joins Essex for the last three matches of the season; Notts’s batting marathon against Yorkshire should have secured their safety, boosted by Ben Slater, Ben Duckett and Kraigg Braithwaite.

Worcestershire v Surrey: Surrey’s march to the title – their win against Essex last week was their eighth straight victory – looks likely to continue at New Road. But Worcestershire managed a draw at The Oval earlier in the season. Jade Dernbach returns after a groin injury. Bottom of the table Worcestershire, 16 points adrift, need to win an unlikely two of their next three games to avoid relegation.

Yorkshire v Lancashire: The relegation face-off. Yorkshire welcome back Steve Pattinson, mid-season captain who has missed the last three matches with a broken finger. Lancashire leave out Haseeb Hameed, but could hand a debut to Richard Gleeson, who has just signed a three-year contract.

DIVISION TWO

Durham v Sussex – Sussex remain in striking distance of Warwickshire and Kent, who currently occupy the promotion places. Durham’s batting saw them through to a draw against Warwickshire, but they remain in the bottom three.

Glamorgan v Gloucestershire: Glamorgan are in the doldrums, 30 points adrift at the bottom of the table. Gloucestershire have a win and a draw in their last two matches in Bristol, against Leicestershire and Middlesex.

Leicestershire v Warwickshire: Chris Woakes returns for Warwickshire, whose lead at the top was reduced to seven points after the draw against Durham last week. Leicestershire come fresh from two consecutive defeats at Gloucestershire and Sussex.

Middlesex v Kent – A crucial division two match. Middlesex have slipped from realistic promotion contention, but they could still effect who goes up. Kent, fresh from three consecutive wins, are aiming to reach Division One for the first time since 2010. New Zealand seamer Matt Henry, took 11 for 114 last week against Northants, and now has 61 wickets at an average of less than 15 – meaning he will almost certainly become Kent’s most successful overseas bowler since Terry Alderman took 98 wickets in 1986. (overtaking Paul Strang’s 63 in 1997).

Northamptonshire v Derbyshire: Not a match of great distinction. Both counties have been raided by their wealthier cousins, with Derbyshire’s Ben Slater and Northamptonshire’s Ben Duckett now teaming up at Nottinghamshire, and Northants releasing Richard Gleeson to Lancashire.
