County Championship Division One-
Surrey vs Hampshire, London
Jimmy Adams and James Vince’s centuries helped Hampshire to a commanding 361 for 4 on the opening day of their Division 1 county game against Surrey at the Kennington Oval in London.
Brief scores: Hampshire 361/4 (Jimmy Adams 144, James Vince 104, George Bailey 61*; Tom Curran 2-71) vs Surrey.
Yorkshire vs Somerset, Scarborough
Yorkshire’s clash against Somerset was left delicately poised at Stumps on Day 1 after Craig Overton’s double strike and a late dismissal of Peter Handscomb left the hosts wobbling at 42 for 3. If not for that mini victory right at the end of the day’s play, the script at Scarborough had largely played out in accordance with Somerset’s forgettable season so far.
Brief scores: Somerset 268 (Adam Hose 62, Tim Groenewald 41; Liam Plunkett 4-73) lead Yorkshire 42/3 (Harry Brook 16*; Craig Overton 2-17) by 226 runs.
Warwickshire vs Middlesex, Birmingham
Brief scores: Warwickshire 302/7 (Rikki Clarke 83, Matthew Lamb 51; Ryan Higgins 2-38) vs Middlesex
