Around the Grounds: Plays of the Day

Division One:

Well I said yesterday that Troughton and Ambrose would have some batting to do to save Warwickshire and....they didn't.  Troughton was the only man not to fall victim to Steve Harmison as he raced through Warwickshire's batting lineup, taking 6 wickets for only 8 runs, ending with 7-29, his best figures for Durham.  Warwickshire fell a massive 219 runs short.

Rain spoiled the Yorkshire-Lancashire match which ended in a draw, although with Lancs 7 down at the end they were doing their best to make it exciting anyway. Only Steven Croft offered any resistance with 85 as Rashid picked up another three wickets to go with his first innings five-for.  Earlier in the day he'd hit a quick fire 42* as Yorkshire looked to set a target.  Young Simon Kerrigan, Lancashire's slow left armer took four Yorkshire wickets and Adam Lyth fell cheaply, leaving himself 18 runs short of 1,000 for the season and 7 runs behind Ramprakash.

Division Two: 

Surrey won.  That's all that matters.
