Brown leads the way with century for Second XI

Karl Brown struck a century on Day Two of Lancashire’s Second XI Championship match at Northamptonshire to help his side build a useful first innings lead.

Brown hit 141 from 266 balls, including 19 fours and a six. He was well supported by George Balderson (26) early in the morning before Rob Jones joined him at the crease and the pair reached a 100 run partnership for the third wicket.


The departure of Jones for 30 brought Brooke Guest to the crease and even after Brown was dismissed off the bowling of Tom Holmes, the wicket keeper continued to play nicely as he scored 72.

Guest was the last man out with Lancashire on 331, the Red Rose building a first innings lead of 52.

Similarly to Lancashire on the previous day, the home side would have a tricky short session to survive with the bat.

Opener Saif Zaib (21*) was unbeaten at the close, but Lancashire did make a breakthrough, Liam Hurt claiming the scalp of C Home, caught by Jones for four.

Northamptonshire finished on 40/1, still trailing by 12 runs heading into the final days play.
