  • Lancashire v Northants
    Drawn Northamptonshire O n the hottest July day ever recorded it was Lancashire who were left feeling the heat as Northants applied the pressure setting the Red Rose a victory target of 414 which had been reduced to 395 by Paul Horton and Karl Brown who successfully played out the six overs left at the end of the day Steven Crook and Ben Duckett were the main contributors for the visitors as Crook s early morning burst of 3 10 helped Northants gain a useful first innings lead of 130 while Lancashire lost six wickets for 51 in the morning session to be all out for 308 from 97 3 overs Then Duckett produce another fine innings to anchor the Northants second innings during the afternoon heat Lancashire resumed their first innings on 257 4 still 181 runs behind in sweltering conditions at the start of the day with the temperature nudging 30C as the players took to the field Northants took the new ball and Azhar Ullah made an immediate breakthrough James Faulkner edging to Alex Wakely at second slip to depart for 7 with the score 262 5 Olly Stone backed up his bowling partner with a searching spell as Steven Croft and Jordan Clark played carefully during the opening hour although Croft was unlucky to see his straight drive off Azhar Ullah cannon into the stumps at the bowler s end A change of bowling did the trick for Northants when Croft on 25 bottom edged an attempted cut on to his stumps in Crook s first over Then Stone accounted for Arron Lilley the batsman nicking an attempted drive to wicketkeeper Adam Rossington for 1 to leave the Red Rose on 280 7 in the 90th over The cautious play and accurate bowling resulted in no boundaries being struck during the first hour but Clark put that statistic to bed with two in one Stone over just after midday First he steered the Northants paceman to third man before cracking a square cut emphatically through the vacant point area to take Lancashire past the follow on point although the chances that it would have been enforced in the heat were pretty unlikely Clark was Crook s second victim when he chopped on attempting a cut to depart for 18 and Tom Bailey became the third batsman of the morning to deflect a Crook delivery on to his stumps when the bowler nipped one back moments later to make it 303 9 in the 95th over Simon Kerrigan was the last man out for 2 when his attempted hook off Azhar Ullah found Josh Cobb at square leg It meant the Red Rose had lost their last five wickets for 29 runs in 56 balls Leading by 130 runs Northants lost Kyle Coetzer before lunch the opener edging Bailey to wicketkeeper Davies for 5 and Kerrigan spun one past Wakely to bowl the visitors skipper for 9 straight after the resumption the score then 36 2 First innings centurion Ben Duckett and Rob Keogh steadied the innings with a 55 run partnership in 11 overs including one six by Duckett off Kerrigan over long on before two wickets in 2 balls by Faulkner made further inroads into the Northants innings First Keogh was beaten for pace by a well pitched up delivery to be lbw for 20 and Levi followed in identical fashion to the Australian s next ball to leave the visitors 91 4 midway through the day leading by 221 runs Rossington made 15 before falling to a bat pad catch by Croft at short square leg off Lilley although the Northants wicketkeeper looked anything but happy at the decision with the visitors now 110 5 Duckett s excellent game continued as the opening batsman reached his half century from 73 balls and he then proceeded to drive consecutive Faulkner deliveries to the long off boundary to stretch the lead to 250 Duckett played the most fluently of all the Northants batsmen and at times looked as if he was playing a different game to the rest So maybe it was perhaps a touch of over confidence or simply fatigue in the afternoon heat when he lamely drove Lilley to Prince at mid off Whichever it came as huge surprised to those watching to see him troop off after making 88 to go with his first innings century although by then Northants were 155 6 and heading towards a commanding lead Cobb and Crook added a further 15 runs by tea to stretch their overall advantage to 301 and the pair began to hit out when play resumed reaching a fifty partnership off 83 balls Crook eventually became Lilley s third victim of the innings lbw for 37 after adding 70 runs inside 18 overs with Cobb and Lilley then took a well judged catch running back from mid off to dismiss Graeme White for 8 off Kerrigan to make it 236 8 Cobb went on to make an unbeaten 52 and indulge in some late over hitting with Stone who made a rapid 35 off 29 balls including three sixes as Northants finally declared on 283 9 setting Lancashire a daunting 414 to win from a minimum of 102 overs By the close Horton 5 not out and Brown 12 not out had safely negotiated the 6 remaining overs to steer Lancashire to 19 0 It was a disappointing day from our point of view said skipper Steven Croft We didn t get any partnerships going with the bat and we wanted to get nearer to their total or even bat past There was some poor shot selection and we found it tough with the bat We ve put some great partnerships together down the order this season and losing six for fifty we re a lot better than that We probably didn t make the most of the new ball today We would have liked to have restricted them a bit more and we struggled a bit Looking ahead to the final day with Lancashire requiring a record total to win he said We have to see tomorrow as a fresh day It s a tough task ahead if we are to chase the runs down It s there for us to do that and it s there for us to save the game As a batter you want to win the game for your side first or be the man to save the innings Whatever we do we have to build a foundation and have an intent not to go into survival mode but put their bowlers under pressure Ken Grime Lancashire Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Mon 29 Jun 2015 11 00 English LV County Championship Division Two 2015 V Match Drawn Northamptonshire 97 by Karl Brown and half centuries by Alex Davies and Ashwell Prince along with four early wickets this morning mean Lancashire have enjoyed a better day in this LV County Championship match finishing on 257 4 to trail Northants by 181 runs at the halfway stage in this evenly poised game Northants added exactly 50 runs to their overnight total during the first hour of play today Resuming on 388 6 Adam Rossington was the first wicket to fall when he pushed at a Kyle Jarvis delivery that nipped back to trap the Northants wicketkeeper lbw for 89 Graeme White troubled by both of the first two deliveries he received went for a third ball duck when he edged James Faulkner to Paul Horton at first slip and Olly Stone followed five overs later when an excellent catch low down at first slip by Horton off Jarvis gave Lancashire their third bonus point with Northants 422 9 in the 108th over Azhar Ullah had time to crack three consecutive fours off Jarvis before Crook was the last man out for a well worked 34 hitting Tom Bailey high to Jordan Clark at long on to end the visitors first innings at 438 with Faulkner finishing with 4 63 and Jarvis adding three more to his season tally Lancashire s reply started badly when Horton was bowled shouldering arms to Stone in the second over to depart for duck Brown and Davies in at number 3 with Alviro Petersen sidelined resisted a fine opening spell from the impressive Stone and Azhar Ullah to reach lunch on 25 1 and the pair counter attacked after the break to good effect with three boundaries in first two overs of the afternoon The introduction of Rob Keogh brought Northants a measure of control the off spinner s first five overs costing six runs with enough turn to be played watchfully by both batsman It was Davies who broke the shackles after a seven over period without a boundary when he pulled Azhar Ullah to square leg for four while Brown drove Keogh through the covers as Lancashire reached the midway point of the day on 79 1 following another savage square cut by Davies Davies then straight drove White emphatically for another boundary after the left arm spinner was brought on to bowl in tandem with Keogh but it was Brown who was the first to reach his half century when he swept White to square leg for four in the 38th over That shot also delivered the century partnership and moments afterwards Davies reached his own fifty but two balls later glanced Keogh to wicketkeeper Rossington as he tried to work the ball towards the leg side That brought Prince to the crease with the score on 110 2 shortly before tea and the left hander swept and then cut consecutive Keogh deliveries for four to get Lancashire up and running after the interval Brown pulled Keogh to the mid wicket boundary while Prince drove Stone past mid off for four and then lofted Keogh for a straight six as the runs started to flow during the final session The pair brought their fifty partnership up from 78 balls in the 53rd over with Lancashire 160 2 and Brown moved in to the eighties when he cut Josh Cobb for four Prince also took a liking to the off spinner steering him to the mid wicket boundary and cutting for four more off the back foot in the 59th over The century partnership arrived soon afterwards from 22 overs when Prince reverse swept White for four the shot also taking the left handed batsman to the outstanding landmark of 18 000 first class career runs Further applause soon rang around the ground when Prince became the first to score 1 000 Championship runs this season when he reached 61 with a lovely square cut off Keogh Both players looked to be in superb form so it came as something of a surprise when their alliance ended after they had realised 116 runs in 25 overs and one ball late in day Brown out for 96 in his previous innings against Leicestershire went for 97 this time after his attempted cut off White flew of the top edge to slip where Stone clung on to a sharp chance It was an agonising end to such a good innings and means the Lancashire opener is still searching for that elusive second first class century although he will no doubt be pleased to have made a fourth consecutive score of more than fifty Brown s dismissal left Lancashire on 226 3 in the 66th over and twenty runs later Prince was also on his way back to the dressing room having made an entertaining 83 off 102 balls after edging a drive off Keogh to slip where once again Stone took a good catch Steven Croft drove Keogh to the mid wicket fence to finish on 13 not out and the Red Rose skipper will have Faulkner 5 not out for company when play resumes tomorrow with Lancashire 181 runs behind Ashwell Prince believes Karl Brown shouldn t worry too much about missing out on a century It was unfortunate and also the second time I ve been at the other end when he s been out in the nineties and you feel for him He s batting well and I think three runs doesn t really make a big difference at the end of the day It was a quality innings by him As an opening batsman he s laid down a good foundation for the team It s frustrating getting out when well set and it slows the scoring rate down We want to get all the batting points we can and I had that in the back of my mind to keep scoring but unfortunately both of us got out The game is even stevens at the moment We want to get as close as we can to their score or go past it The pitch will start to spin more and the game will speed up Regarding his own contribution Prince was more concerned with the outcome of this game It s satisfying to have a good season he explained and 18 000 runs has a lot to do with how many matches I ve played It s nice to get but the bigger picture is winning the game Lancashire Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Mon 29 Jun 2015 11 00 English LV County Championship Division Two 2015 V Match Drawn Northamptonshire I t was advantage Northamptonshire on the opening day of this LV County Championship match thanks to two century partnerships the first between Ben Duckett and Alex Wakely in the morning followed by Adam Rossington and Richard Levi in the afternoon on a hot sunny day at Emirates Old Trafford Visiting skipper Wakely called correctly at the toss and elected to bat in initially cloudy conditions and when leading wicket taker Kyle Jarvis struck in the second over trapping Kyle Coetzer for 1 with the ball swinging significantly during the opening overs it seemed the Lancashire attack might be in for a profitable session The swing evaporated as quickly as the clouds departed fifteen minutes after the start with Wakely and Duckett moving the score along in quick fashion Duckett had a narrow escape in the third over when gloving a sharp delivery from Tom Bailey the ball popping up but dropping just short of Karl Brown diving forward at gully and a further half chance arrived when the left hander edged Jarvis low and wide of second slip in the eighth Although James Faulkner and Jordan Clark also troubled both batsmen finding edges that scuttled along the ground wide of the slip cordon the Northants pair played well to add an unbroken partnership of 138 at lunch with Duckett on 80 and Wakely 47 Duckett in particular played some fine shots hooking Jarvis for 6 over square leg as early as the fourth over and later pulling Clark for another maximum to reach his half century from just 50 balls Wakely greeting the arrival of spin twenty minutes before the interval by thumping Simon Kerrigan for a straight six although the left arm spinner responded well with a delivery that gripped the surface to beat the Northants captain in the following over Northants 139 1 from 31 overs at lunch continued to prosper during the early part of the afternoon session before James Faulkner made the breakthrough in the tenth over after the resumption Lancashire s overseas fast bowler produced a beautiful yorker to rip out Wakely s leg stump with the visitors skipper on 56 having helped to add 170 runs for the second wicket Duckett meanwhile continued to cruise along Having cut and driven Jarvis for two fours in the 36th over on the way to a 121 ball century he then struck five more boundaries during Arron Lilley s afternoon spell to put Northants in charge at the midway point of the day on 216 2 Two wickets in Kerrigan s fifth over halted Duckett and Northants progress when the batsman played an injudicious reverse sweep and looked suitably aghast to be lbw for 134 Rob Keogh who had helped Duckett add 56 inside 9 overs fell two balls later when he was caught smartly by Steven Croft at short leg for 19 as Lancashire hauled themselves back into the contest with Northants 228 4 after 50 overs A century partnership between Richard Levi and Adam Rossington either side of tea initially steadied the Northants innings before the pair pushed on during the evening session to keep the visitors in the ascendancy Rossington garnering a third batting point when hitting Lilley for 6 in the 74th over It proved to be hard work on a flat track for the Lancashire attack who took the new ball with Northants 331 4 after 80 overs but struggled to find a way through Levi reached his half century from 104 deliveries and had made 57 before he drove loosely at a slightly wider Faulkner delivery and edged to wicketkeeper Alex Davies Levi s partnership with Rossington had yielded 142 runs in just over 40 overs but the next wicket arrived from the following delivery when Josh Cobb edged Faulkner to Croft at second slip to make the score 370 6 five overs before the close Northants added a further 18 runs to reach stumps on 388 6 with Rossington 79 not out and Steven Crook on 15 At the close Simon Kerrigan admitted it hadn t been a good day for the Red Rose side It was a tough day he said We ve not had many of them so far this season The first session got away from us a bit and we had to cling on to try and keep it somewhat respectable for the rest of the day We ve managed to get six wickets so hopefully we can get the rest tomorrow morning Asked about the fightback after lunch with Northants only one wicket down the left arm spinner was forthright We needed to

  • Lancashire VS Yorkshire - 03 Jul 2015 - Lancashire County Cricket Club
    total ever conceded by Yorkshire Facing an asking rate of 11 6 per over from the start skipper Gale and Finch made exactly the right sort of start the visitors needed if they were to haul in their target The pair had taken the Vikings to 63 0 from the 6 powerplay overs but Man of the Match Stephen Parry then made a decisive double breakthrough in the seventh over The Lancashire spinner who had received his County Cap before the start of play saw Arron Lilley take a steepling catch running in from long off to end Finch s innings at 33 and four balls later he deceived Yorkshire s other Australian overseas player Glenn Maxwell who edged to wicketkeeper Davies for 1 Gale rallied his side who reached the start of the tenth over still in contention on 88 2 with Bairstow hitting Parry for six but the Vikings captain was then run out for 35 by a direct hit following a superb throw by Lilley running in from long on and Andrew Hodd went for a duck after striking Parry to Croft in the deep When Bairstow was bowled by Croft for 26 the ball after hitting the Red Rose skipper for six the game was effectively over with Yorkshire 102 5 with 130 runs required from 54 balls It never looked remotely possible for the White Rose from that point with Parry in the middle of his four overs spell of 3 29 and well backed up by Lilley s 3 31 Tim Bresnan indulged in some spectacular late order hitting with 51 off 24 balls including five sixes but the Vikings were too far back for it to affect the result as Lancashire ran out comfortable winners by 29 runs It was a great night said Stephen Parry More importantly it was a four pointer so a great one to win It was a massive game and we had said a few words before in the changing room We could feel the buzz before and everyone was really up for it If you can t get up for a game like that then it s time to retire The start we had it put them on the back foot straight away Sometimes this season we ve not started well bowlers and batters but today we got it What was really important was the way the batters played after the powerplay It kept the pressure on The left arm spinner took the two crucial early wickets of Finch and Maxwell on his way to 3 29 and the Man of the Match award Going into the game I do a lot of research and prep So it was good to win the battle against them he admitted I just didn t expect it would be in the same over Receiving his Lancashire Cap before the start of play was also a great moment too My family were all here he revealed So it was a special

  • Lancashire v Essex
    initially resisted the Red Rose opening pair and indeed prospered after tea it was Lester who struck again bowling from around the wicket and producing a beauty of a delivery that came back to bowl Dawson for 17 the visitors then 50 2 It was a great first spell by the 22 year old who had figures of 9 3 30 2 when he was replaced by Faulkner The Australian followed with a devastating burst of his own taking 3 9 in four overs to put Essex in trouble at 81 5 Faulkner struck in his second over when Ravi Bopara bottom edged an attempted cut to wicketkeeper Davies on 6 and the left armer then took two in three balls in his fourth over First Jesse Ryder sliced a drive straight to Lilley at backward point for 4 and Ryan Ten Doeschate followed for a duck trapped lbw second ball Nick Browne batted solidly to try and hold the innings together the opener going to his half century from 102 balls with eight fours and finishing the day 70 not out Essex skipper James Foster received a reprieve on five when we had the rare sight of Croft dropping a catch the chance at 2nd slip coming off Faulkner when the score was 101 5 to end the day unbeaten on 13 The pair batted the final 21 overs of the day patiently adding 58 runs and preventing a possible collapse as Lancashire ended the day still on top 263 runs ahead but with a lot of work to do if they are to have any hope of forcing a result tomorrow Crucially the follow on target for the visitors is still 114 runs away Steven Croft was pleased how the day had gone It was a really good day for the team he said getting to 400 was good and the way we got to there from ninety odd for four we had to dig in and we got there well in the end We thought there was still a little bit in the pitch if you re disciplined and we showed that There s some turn as well he explained when talking about the declaration at 402 for 8 Hopefully we can put Essex under a pressure tomorrow and get them to follow on If we are nice and disciplined I think we can get our rewards Asked about his own century the Red Rose skipper admitted I m really pleased with it as you are with any century We were in a bit of a sticky patch so it was nice to be the man who got the century when we were struggling a little bit And Croft was equally delighted for debutant Toby Lester He got two wickets in his opening spell and it s always nice to see As a bowler you don t want to be scratching around in a second or third spell searching for that first wicket He s stuck to what he knows best pitching the ball up and swinging it and it was a pleasure to see him get a two fer Lancashire Emirates Old Trafford Manchester Mon 06 Jul 2015 11 00 English LV County Championship Division Two 2015 V Match Drawn Essex A n unbeaten 85 by Steven Croft and two fifty partnerships with Alex Davies and James Faulkner have been the highlight of a rain hit second day at Emirates Old Trafford as Lancashire reached the close on 257 5 Only 89 overs less than a full day s play had been lost in our five home LV County Championship matches played prior to this game but 122 overs have now lost in just two rainy days against Essex The players took to the field with the floodlights on and dark clouds looming at 11am although there was time for Davies to flick the first ball from Liam Dawson to the mid wicket boundary and take a single from the second delivery That concluded the entertainment for the session with Lancashire 101 4 in their first innings with the only other activity that of the groundstaff who had to battle difficult windy conditions as well as the rain At one point the covers were taken off only to be hastily returned to the middle as further rain arrived When play did resume after lunch at 1 25pm Steven Croft cut Jamie Porter for four while Davies drove Reece Topley to the mid wicket fence before steering the next ball to the vacant third man boundary to restart the innings in a positive fashion Unfortunately rain halted play after just 7 overs at 2pm with Lancashire 120 4 An early tea was taken at 3 40pm with 41 3 overs left and when play resumed Davies pulled Porter to the square leg boundary to get the final session under way Lancashire s wicketkeeper batsmen then resumed the battle with his former England under 19 colleague Topley driving the Essex man to mid on for four Earlier Topley was convinced he had Davies out caught behind and he made sure to remind his former room mate about the incident albeit in amicable fashion as the batsman walked out to the middle after tea Croft meanwhile got away with an edge off Porter that flew wide of Ravi Bopara at second slip for four but made no mistake when Topley bowled short cutting the left arm seamer convincingly to the ropes Davies survived a close lbw shout when Porter no balled the two runs bringing up the fifty partnership off 94 balls and he rubbed salt in the wound by driving the same bowler to the long off boundary two balls later Croft cut Topley square to take Lancashire past the 150 mark and Davies did likewise in the same over as runs came quickly in the bright evening sunshine Essex made a double change with Liam Dawson and Graham Napier brought into the attack Croft cutting Napier to
