  • Lancashire v Durham
    helped Lancashire to a valuable first innings lead of 81 on the third day of their LV Division One match against Durham at Emirates Old Trafford Needing a win to increase their chances of avoiding relegation Glen Chapple s side were dismissed for 321 and then had the visitors 59 for one at the close Mark Stoneman being caught at short leg by Steven Croft off Simon Kerrigan for 29 half an hour before the close However the Lancashire slow left armer extracted enough turn and bounce from the pitch used for the Test match against India to give his side some hope of forcing a victory on the last day of the game That however may be dependant on rain which trimmed 33 overs off Sunday s play keeping clear of Manchester on Monday Whatever the outcome nothing should detract from Prince s effort or those of all the cricketers on a day when summer seemed a noun soaked with satire In some ways it was very frustrating having to go on and off with the rain but we would have taken a lead of 81 at the end of the first innings said Prince We would have liked one or two more wickets before the close but it was also difficult out there for the bowlers As difficult as it is to stand up in this sort of wind for a batsman it is just a difficult for bowlers to get in a rhythm Paul Horton played outstandingly yesterday and with the foundation he and Luis Reece gave us we were in a good position overnight to get a lead With the position we find ourselves in in the table it is important we try and get a win and I think even though it is the last day there is a lot of things happening with the wicket and there will be chances to get a result I am confident there will be a result we just have to be on the right side of it Ashwell waited for the ball in his area but I think we re in a good position if we can bat for a couple of hours tomorrow was the view of Durham s John Hastings It d be nice if we could have a full three sessions because I think we re set up for a very good day Resuming on 252 for five Lancashire made good progress in a first session shortened to just 20 overs by frequent showers the home batsmen scoring 80 runs for the loss of Tom Smith whose breezy 44 included eight boundaries Some of these were very cleanly driven off the slightly wayward Scott Borthwick Smith s 61 ball innings was eventually ended when he drove Chris Rushworth to gully where Calum MacLeod completed a good low catch However Prince had progressed carefully to 83 not out at lunch when Lancashire were eight runs in arrears on 332 for six The afternoon session was restricted to just 12 overs before very heavy rain drenched Old Trafford and prevented any play until 4 45 Stephen Parry was dismissed by the ball before the rain arrived when he edged a hook off John Hastings to Phil Mustard but by that time Parry s career best 37 had helped Lancashire take a first innings lead for only the third time this season Prince was 98 not out when the players left the field and the South African completed his third first class hundred of the season and the 40th of his career shortly after the restart when he pulled Borthwick to the square leg boundary to reach three figures off 199 balls with twelve fours Hastings bowled Prince off the inside edge in the next over but Tom Bailey added a useful 37 with Glen Chapple before he edged Hastings to Mustard Lancashire s skipper was bowled by Ben Stokes for 21 four balls later to leave his side with a useful lead and 18 overs left to bowl on the third evening Hastings finished with four for 78 and Borthwick took two for 158 from 49 overs the most overs bowled by a Durham cricketer in a single innings since 1998 Lancashire s bowlers had only the wicket of Stoneman to encourage them in the hour or so of Durham s second innings but the day ended with Kerrigan and Parry bowling in tandem and close fielders surrounding the batsmen and plenty of appealing going on There is plenty of work for Durham s batsmen to do if they are to secure the draw on the final afternoon and they may even harbour hopes of a remarkable win And at the end of the day Prince even held open the slim prospect of his returning to Old Trafford in 2015 I get well with the lads and I have had a few of the boys asking me to think about it he said It is a tough decision You come to a stage in your life when family is more important than an individual But you never know what can happen At the moment I am still retiring at the the end of the season unless Glen Chapple if he becomes the coach next year talks me into it Paul Edwards Photo c Simon Pendrigh Lancashire Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Fri 15 Aug 2014 11 00 English LV County Championship Division Two 2015 V Lancashire win by 1 wicket Durham A second century of the season by Paul Horton and Ashwell Prince s unbeaten half century helped Lancashire make a spirited response to Durham s 340 on the second day of the LV Division One match at Emirates Old Trafford By close of play the Red Rose side had reached 252 for five with Prince 58 not out off 101 balls but home hopes of forcing a win seem to rest on the South African and Lancashire s later batsmen building a substantial first innings lead on the third day And Horton was in optimistic mood as he reviewed a day s cricket which had been played out in chill weather more suited to October than August That was a real good day for us he said To get the two wickets early and then to bat well into the evening leaves us very happy with the way the day s panned out It was pleasant to have Luis back opening He regained his form and to share a record first wicket partnership against Durham with him was really nice If we can get past Durham s score and build a first innings lead I would imagine that the game will accelerate in the later stages with the ball turning Indeed the first session could scarcely have gone better for Lancashire Glen Chapple s bowlers took the last two Durham wickets in the first ten minutes of play and then openers Horton and Reece guided the home side safely to 78 for nought at the interval The morning included another success for Tom Smith who became the leading wicket taker in Division One with 53 victims when he had last man Chris Rushworth caught at cover by Usman Khawaja for five Seven balls previously Ben Stokes had hoisted Simon Kerrigan to long on where Prince pouched the catch Smith finished with figures of 5 for 45 while Kerrigan ended the innings with 4 86 from 26 overs in which he had seemed to be regaining much of his familiar rhythm The Lancashire openers were cautious at first but Horton passed fifty for the fifth time this season off 87 balls while Reece readjusted to first team cricket in his first appearance since the Roses match in May Durham s attack received little encouragement and John Hastings was warned by umpire Russell Evans for running on the pitch For over an hour in the afternoon session Horton and Reece batted securely against an attack which lacked off spinner Ryan Buckley who was off the field with an unspecified illness The opening pair had put on 138 a first wicket record for their county against Durham when Reece departed for 36 when he pushed forward to Borthwick and was caught by Paul Collingwood at first slip Luis has done really well after having a tough start to the season in April and May said Horton He s scored a lot of runs in second team cricket and he s forced his way back in but that is exactly what you re hoping people do In the over after Reece s dismissal Khawaja gave a return catch to the Durham leg spinner and departed for two but Prince and Horton shepherded their side to the comparative safety of 165 for two at tea by which time Horton had reached his second century of the season off 166 balls with a dozen boundaries Five overs after the restart Horton was perhaps a shade unfortunate to fall lbw to Rushworth when the ball nipped back off the seam and caught the opener on the back foot Steven Croft then lasted barely half an hour and had scored just six when he was bowled playing no shot to a ball from Hastings which came back a little off the seam Alex Davies seemed likely to see out the rest of the day with Prince but Lancashire s wicketkeeper batsman fell to the new ball a few minutes before the close when he gloved a steeply bouncing Ben Stokes delivery to Calum MacLeod in the gully and trooped dejectedly off with 25 to his name Borthwick was the hardest worked Durham bowler and also the most successful the leg spinner finishing the day with two for 93 off 36 overs This has been a big game for us and our final four Division One matches will be huge matches for us said Horton The pitch is really good and there s been 600 runs and only 15 wickets on it in two days so if you didn t know that there had been cricket on it before this match you d be saying it was a great wicket The key is for us to get as many batting points as we can and if we can get to 400 I think that will be a great score Paul Edwards Photos of Paul Horton c Simon Pendrigh Lancashire Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Fri 15 Aug 2014 11 00 English LV County Championship Division Two 2015 V Lancashire win by 1 wicket Durham S imon Kerrigan admitted that Lancashire s players were disappointed after Durham had recovered from 82 for five to reach a formidable 329 for eight by close of play on the first day of the LV Division One game against Lancashire at Emirates Old Trafford John Hastings who made 83 and Calum MacLeod whose 192 ball 84 spanned all three sessions of Friday s play exactly doubled their side s score by adding 145 for the seventh wicket Although both batsmen were dismissed in the final ten overs of the day Ben Stokes had arrived from doing Test match duty at the Oval by then The England all rounder will resume on 24 not out to help his side build an even more substantial first innings total in a game which is being played on Manchester s Test Match wicket We re disappointed with how it went admitted Kerrigan We had a real chance at 82 for five and we didn t manage to capitalise on it It s the Test wicket there s a bit of rough there and Durham have got a lot of left handers up the top of their order It s a decent pitch and it s a big first innings for us once we get them out It could be tricky batting last on that wicket The morning s play could be divided into two slightly uneven sections In the first 50 minutes Mark Stoneman and Keaton Jennings guided Durham reasonably securely to 50 for no wicket in twelve overs both batsmen capitalising on the close set field and any waywardness from either Glen Chapple or Tom Bailey However Stoneman edged a catch to Alex Davies when he pushed at Tom Smith s first ball of the morning and departed for 31 and batting was never as simple thereafter A large part of the explanation for this lies with the introduction of Kerrigan into the attack in the 16th over The slow left armer immediately extracted turn from the Manchester pitch and took his first wicket with his 13th ball when the left hander Jennings attempted a reverse sweep but only gave a bat and pad catch to Steven Croft at short leg and departed for 26 Four overs later Scott Borthwick came down the wicket but only skied a catch to Chapple at mid off when he tried to hit Kerrigan over the top and Smith took his 50th wicket of the season a few minutes later when Durham skipper Paul Collingwood edged his fourth ball to Davies The visitors grim session was completed when Phil Mustard tried to work Kerrigan to leg but was lbw on the back foot for only four With their wicketkeeper s dismissal Durham had lost four wickets for 16 runs in 42 balls Kerrigan taking three of them in 24 deliveries at a cost of 14 runs The careful progress made by Durham s batsmen in the afternoon session put the rash strokeplay of earlier batsmen into an unfavourable perspective but also demonstrated the advantage of being a right handed batsman on a wicket with lots of bowler s footmarks just outside the right hander s off stump Richardson and MacLeod batted with admirable good sense for twenty overs extending their sixth wicket partnership to 63 before Richardson almost steered Smith to Usman Khawaja in the gully when he had made 38 That though was Lancashire only success of the session Hastings joined MacLeod and the pair had added an unbroken 54 by tea Hastings lifting Kerrigan for a couple of straight sixes and pulling Parry for another The Australian hit the spinners for another three sixes in the final session and MacLeod had added a further 36 runs before he was trapped lbw on the back foot by Bailey to give the young Lancashire seamer his solitary success of the day Hastings may also have been eyeing a maiden first class hundred but Durham s No8 was bowled by Smith five minutes before close of play to leave the Lancashire seamer with figures of four for 37 from 20 overs Kerrigan finished with three for 86 from 25 overs It s playing okay on the rest of the wicket there s just a bit of bounce said the left arm spinner But I m not sure I ve seen as much spin as there was out of the footholds before There was one that went down the leg side and Alex Davies said he was going to do what MS Dhoni did and stand five or six yards back The wicket s dried out even more since the Test of course Early on I felt the best I ve felt all year I think but that was helped by the fact that I had a bit of rough to work with Hopefully I can get a couple of wickets tomorrow and then do the same in the second innings The last two sessions of today s play showed our batters you can bat big and if you re patient you can score runs on it But we ve got three other matches and every game from now on is going to be important We ve also got the Roses Match in there as well Paul Edwards Photos of Tom Smith c Simon Pendrigh Lancashire Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Fri 15 Aug 2014 11 00 English LV County Championship Division Two 2015 V Lancashire win by 1 wicket Durham W hether he is playing for Lancashire or not next season Usman Khawaja has his sights set on helping the county achieve their aim of playing first division cricket in the LV County Championship The Australian international batsman is spending the second half of 2014 as the Red Rose county s overseas player and he has admitted his surprise at their lowly position in the top flight After a month of limited overs cricket they return to Championship action at Emirates Old Trafford against reigning champions Durham tomorrow who are one place above Lancashire in seventh Lancashire are eleven points behind with four matches left one fewer than their opponents Twenty seven year old Khawaja has scored 219 runs in four Championship matches this season including a debut 86 in the narrow 27 run defeat in the reverse fixture at Emirates Durham in mid June I think we re as good as any other team said left handed Queensland Bulls player coached back home by Lancashire legend Stuart Law Take the last game against Notts They went into that game pretty much at the top of the table and they beat us with nine wickets down on the third day We ve competed with every single team since I ve been here I look at the guys around this dressing room and we re too good a team to be coming in at the bottom of the table It just happens sometimes A couple of things don t go your way you miss a couple of crucial opportunities at key times and you can be down the bottom of the table There aren t many games left in the four day competition now Fingers crossed we can start winning some games because we want to be playing first division cricket next year While Lancashire lost their last Championship match by one wicket against Liverpool in mid July Durham lost theirs by an innings and 188 runs against Warwickshire at Emirates Durham

  • Lancashire v Yorkshire
    them with the bat In an absorbing morning session Yorkshire added 80 runs in 31 overs for the loss of Alex Lees who was trapped lbw on the crease by Tom Bailey for 40 having added only four to his overnight score That wicket fell in the seventh over of the day but Lyth and Williamson took their side safely to lunch Lyth passing 6000 first class runs when he got to 48 and reaching his fifty off 121 balls Williamson was the more fluent of the pair hitting eight fours in his 42 not out Lancashire s bowlers stuck to their task very well and gave away few easy runs and Glen Chapple could be pleased with the way his attack had responded in a difficult situation Deserved successes were to follow soon after the resumption Williamson was dismissed for 46 when the New Zealander came down the wicket to Parry but failed to make contact with his leg side push and looked back to see Alex Davies complete a fine stumping down the leg side Four overs later visiting skipper Andrew Gale was out for six when he pulled Parry straight to Usman Khawaja at midwicket and with Yorkshire on 163 3 Lancashire s players glimpsed a way back into the game The arrival of Jonny Bairstow soon saw that door slammed in the home team s face The wicketkeeper batsman made 60 off 64 balls and put on 103 in only 19 overs with Lyth When Bairstow was bowled making room to drive Steven Croft though the off side Yorkshire were only 12 runs in arrears and for the only time in the day the Lancashire attack was in disarray By the time Bairstow was out Lyth had reached his fifth Championship century of the season off 213 balls when he pulled Croft for four and he later reached 150 off 276 balls with a pulled six off Bailey Although Jack Leaning was lbw to Kerrigan for a single Rashid joined Lyth in an unbroken stand of 115 for the sixth wicket and Yorkshire will want to extend that advantage before attempting to reinforce their superiority in the second half of this match I enjoyed the wickets said Parry It s always nice to get an international player out and Kane s a very good player of spin as well But I m very hard on myself and I feel like I should have gone for a few less than I did I thought we did well for most of the day we just lost it in little periods and when you don t score enough runs in the first innings it sometimes looks worse than it is They cashed in towards the end of the day when we started to tire but tomorrow s a different day and an awful lot can change Paul Edwards Photo c Simon Pendrigh Lancashire Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Sun 31 Aug 2014 11 00 English LV County Championship Division Two 2015 V Yorkshire win by an innings and 18 runs Yorkshire L uis Reece admitted that it had been a bit of a tough day for Lancashire after Glen Chapple s side had been bowled out for 278 on the first day of the Roses match at Emirates Old Trafford The Leyland opener made his first Championship half century since last September and there were also fifties for Ashwell Prince and Tom Smith in Lancashire s total but Yorkshire were 61 for no wicket by close of play and Reece accepted that his side needed to make breakthroughs early on the second day to restore parity in what is a vital match for Lancashire s hopes of avoiding relegation 300 would have been a par score out there so I think we re a little bit disappointed with our final total said Reece But we have to come back on the second day and get a couple of early wickets and get ourselves back in the game We came back well after losing two wickets in the first over and it was a bit disappointing that we couldn t kick on after that Ashwell Prince is brilliant to bat with and he played very positively to take the pressure off me Indeed as Reece mentioned the match could scarcely have got off to a worse start for Lancashire as Yorkshire seamer Ryan Sidebottom took two wickets with the second and third balls of the home side s innings this after Chapple had won the toss First Paul Horton was lbw for nought when comprehensively beaten by a ball which swung back into him The next delivery was similar but slightly outside the off stump and it set a very different problem for the left handed Usman Khawaja who could only edge it to wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow Reece and Ashwell Prince ensured that Yorkshire made no further breakthroughs with the new ball and the pair had added 96 when Prince having made a polished 53 off 60 balls attempted a reverse sweep off Adil Rashid but only succeeded in playing the ball onto his stumps Reece reached his half century off 90 balls when he square cut Sidebottom for four and the Lancashire opener was 53 not out at lunch when Steven Croft was unbeaten on 14 and the total was 121 for three However Lancashire lost a wicket without addition to that score two balls after lunch when Sidebottom s full length delivery had Reece lbw However Croft and Alex Davies profited from the inaccuracy of the Yorkshire bowlers to add 48 in nine overs before Brooks trapped Croft lbw for 38 Davies followed his team mate to the pavilion ten overs later for 35 when he drove Richard Pyrah to short extra cover where Jack Leaning took a fine diving catch to leave the home side on 194 for six Tom Smith and Stephen Parry then batted with more circumspection against an increasingly accurate attack to take their side

give Sussex a target and give ourselves a chance of winning the game The pitch is still playing well by the looks of it Keggsy got a little bit of turn as the day went on We hope the advantage of bowling last on it will be that it s worn and will give us an opportunity to bowl them out on Friday Anderson had Luke Wells caught behind to leave the score at 1 1 in the third over of the day before Simon Kerrigan had Nash caught at mid on after lunch 157 2 Joyce reached his ton off 144 balls with 15 fours in the second half of the afternoon but Anderson had Cachopa caught at second slip to start

overs Thankfully however Procter returned to the side for his first match since early May and boosted the visitors to 320 all out shortly before close with six fours in 155 balls signalling three batting bonus points There were also late and extremely useful contributions from captain Glen Chapple 28 Simon Kerrigan 25 and Jimmy Anderson 28 Steven Croft had earlier posted 49 and Usman Khawaja hit 45 Procter and Kerrigan shared 68 inside 27 overs for the ninth wicket and Procter and Anderson 60 inside eight for the tenth as Lancashire more than doubled their score for the last three wickets Left arm spinner Ashar Zaidi claimed three wickets and left arm seamer Lewis Hatchett two for a Sussex side who closed at 0 0 from two overs Procter batted with composure on the way to his eleventh score above 50 in Championship cricket Ironically the left hander s first of those came on this ground in April 2011 At one point we were looking down the barrel a bit admitted Croft But the lower order fought really hard there led by Luke who played an excellent innings and was a pleasure to watch Luke batted brilliantly It was a chanceless innings and the lower order batted brilliantly with him Jimmy and Keggsy gave him some great support With there only being two games left and these being only a couple of spots above us we ve got no time to waste It was probably looking like their day but the momentum s with us now Hopefully we can take that into tomorrow morning with Jimmy and Chapple make some early inroads and go from there I don t think the pitch is going to get any better We were expecting it to be a little bit spicier than it was so we were a bit surprised that they put us in Our assessment is that it s not going to get much better so getting over 300 having been stuck in is pleasing We didn t get the start that we wanted but we bat right down to number eleven and every run s crucial on there After a 32 run opening stand between Paul Horton and Khawaja Lancashire lost wickets regularly for much of the first two sessions including Horton and Ashwell Prince in eight balls as they slipped to 33 2 in the tenth over Horton was lbw to Magoffin as he played to leg before Prince was caught at second slip off Hatchett And when Karl Brown was caught at third slip off the otherwise off colour Chris Jordan Lancs were 34 3 in the 15th Khawaja and Croft steadied the Red Rose ship in a fourth wicket stand of 62 inside 14 overs although Khawaja s departure caught behind off Zaidi on the cusp of lunch undid some of the good work leaving the score at 96 4 in the 28th Jos Buttler will be

    overs and build that lead If we can get to 300 or beyond it gives us a much better chance of winning the game We don t know what the weather is going to be for the rest of the game so we can t leave our declaration too long Lancashire s batsmen dominated the morning s play Reece and Prince adding 76 for the second wicket in relatively untroubled fashion Both batsmen played and missed against the new ball but they guided their side to 88 for one at the interval The one batsman dismissed was Paul Horton who was lbw to Tim Murtagh for seven in the seventh over of the session However Rodgers bowlers found the conditions on Wednesday rather less conducive to swing and seam and it was no surprise that spinner Ravi Patel bowled four overs Indeed Simon Kerrigan could be a key man if Lancashire can build a lead on first innings and still be in with a chance of survival However Red Rose fortunes declined in the afternoon session when they lost four wickets in adding 77 runs Reece was the first to go for 45 when his drive off Toby Roland Jones only edged a sharp catch to Dawid Malan at second slip Four overs later Roland Jones also bagged the key wicket of Prince when the South African seemed to stop a drive and only lofted a catch to Rogers at mid off where the Middlesex captain leapt up to take a good catch Karl Brown was bowled by James Harris for 13 when his expansive drive only inside edged the ball onto his stumps but Lancastrian hopes were revived by a 42 run partnership for the sixth wicket between Steven Croft and Jos Buttler Slow left armer Ravi Patel broke that stand when he had Buttler lbw for 23 and Lancashire went into tea on 165 for five with their First Division future hanging in the balance The evening session was dominated by Lancashire s batsmen Croft and Luke Procter extended their sixth wicket stand to 61 before Croft was harshly adjudged caught at the wicket by John Simpson off Roland Jones when the ball had seemed to flick only the batsman s body However Glen Chapple and Procter had added an unbroken 38 for the seventh wicket at stumps by which time Procter was 37 not out off 107 balls and Chapple was unbeaten on 21 There was a possibility of pulling out at 250 5 but that would only have given us a 30 odd lead so if we get to 300 or beyond it gives us a better chance of winning the game said Prince 250 would definitely have secured our chances of being in the game for the rest of the match We re just playing on what we need to do to win the game and stay up in the division We don t know what weather lies ahead so nobody can say this is fair or that s unfair If we think that there s only going to be so many overs because there might be some rain coming in the next couple of days and we want to start bowling We can t leave our declaration too long This morning the cracks were playing a role with the harder ball It didn t swing as much as we anticipated so if the sun is out again the cracks may open up a little bit so the bigger the lead the better for us Paul Edwards Photo of Luke Procter c Simon Pendrigh Lancashire Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Tue 23 Sep 2014 10 30 English LV County Championship Division Two 2015 V Match Drawn Middlesex L uke Procter and Glen Chapple claimed four wickets apiece to dismiss Middlesex for 214 on the rain shortened first day of the Division One game at Emirates Old Trafford However a last wicket partnership of 34 between Ravi Patel and James Harris earned Middlesex a batting bonus point and Lancashire may now need to score a formidable 350 in their first innings in addition to winning the match if they are to make up the 19 point deficit and overtake Middlesex at the bottom of the table So perhaps it was fortunate that rain prevented Chris Rogers bowlers from having any chance to exploit the bowler friendly conditions on a day when 25 overs were lost to the weather Nonetheless Lancashire vice captain Paul Horton was full of praise for the Red Rose attack when he reviewed the day s play I think it was a very good day for us he said To bowl a side out after you lose the toss is good although it was little bit frustrating that they got beyond 200 because we need to take three more bonus points than Middlesex from this game as well as winning the match Now we need to get 350 In the morning session Rogers side progressed to 86 for three off 30 overs as Lancashire s four seamers including Junaid Khan and Tom Bailey maintained a tight line The out of touch Sam Robson was the first to go having accumulated just seven when he edged Chapple to Jos Buttler in the seventh over of the day Dawid Malan followed the opener back to the dressing room nine overs later when he nicked Procter to second slip Steven Croft and was dismissed for five Rogers also found it tough going against the Red Rose bowlers and the Middlesex skipper was unable to follow up his match saving double hundred at Taunton with another big score Instead he was bowled for 33 by a good ball from Procter which came back off the pitch although by that time he had been dropped by both Buttler and Croft The visitors reached the break with honours even Joe Denly having faced 52 balls for his unbeaten 27 After lunch Denly and Eoin Morgan added 19 runs in a
