Honours even on opening day of Second XI clash

Three wickets each for Stephen Parry and Toby Lester ensured that it was honours even at the end of the first day of Lancashire’s Second XI Championship match with Northamptonshire.

Bowling first the Red Rose made the perfect start as Liam Hurt (1/41) dismissed Ricardo Vasconcelos for a duck with just the second ball of the day.

However half centuries for Saif Zaib and L Bartier put Northants in control, as they reached 215/3 by the afternoon.

Lancashire fought back strongly with Parry and Lester turning the screw to reduce the home side 276/9, before Josh Bohannon (1/35) took the final wicket to bowl Northants out for 279 from 90.5 overs.

Openers Karl Brown and Haseeb Hameed strode out to the crease with a tricky short session to survive before the close of play.

Hameed struck an early four but was soon dismissed for nine, caught off the bowling of Ben Cotton.

The Red Rose sent in night-watchman George Balderson (0*) who survived alongside Brown (10*) and Lancashire will return tomorrow with the score on 19/1, trailing by 260 runs.
