A County Practice 15/6

UPDATED 22 September, 2013 6:21PM AEST | by Andrew Groves

Joe Burns was bowled 23 runs short of his maiden century for Leicestershire as The Foxes held on for a draw.

Leicestershire 6-238 (Burns 77) drew with Northamptonshire 7-567 on Day four at Leicester

Us

Joe Burns added ten to his overnight score as Leicestershire held on for a draw against Northants.

The visitors clearly missed the firepower of Trent Copeland as they failed to blast out the home side's middle order.

Burns lasted 133 balls for his 77.

He was provided support by captain Matthew Boyce (40) and Michael Thornely (46) when time was called on the match with The Foxes on 6-238.

Nottinghamshire 3-204 (Cowan 24) v Derbyshire 391 on Day three at Trent Bridge

Us

Ed Cowan made a start, but he was eventually dismissed for 24 against Derbyshire.

The left-hander hit five fours in his 25-ball knock but then had to watch from the pavilion as Michael Lumb (115no) and James Taylor   (40) battered the ball to all parts.

Taylor and Samit Patel (9) were out late on as Notts closed the day on 3-204, 187 behind the visitors.

Sussex 295 v Surrey 6-362 (Ponting 13, Magoffin 1-48, Panesar 3-104) on Day three at Arundel

Us

Ricky Ponting made a rare failure for Surrey as his side finished day three in the stronger position.

Steve Magoffin was the man to prise out the former Australian captain with the score on 113. However, a century by Vikram Solanki   saw Surrey close on 6-362, 67 runs ahead of Sussex. Magoffin finished with figures of 1-48. Monty Panesar took 3-104.

Essex 273 & 20 lost to Lancashire 398 (Katich 122) by an innings and 105 runs on Day three at Chelmsford

Us

Simon Katich only added two to his overnight 120, but Lancashire's first innings total of 398 proved way too much for Essex who were skittled for just 20 in reply.

Captain Glen Chapple followed up his unbeaten 50 with 5-9 off 7.2 overs. Kyle Hogg took 4-11 as the home side fell like a pack of cards.

Only Jake Mickleburgh (10) made double figures, six batsmen were removed for a duck. It was Essex's worse first-class score in County Cricket since 1983.

Hampshire 0-0 dec & 212 lost to Gloucestershire 7-410 & 0-0 by 198 runs on Day three at Southampton

Michael Klinger's Gloucestershire sealed victory over Hampshire after both sides forfeited an innings on the second to last day on the south coast.

Starting the morning on 7-349, Gareth Roderick (45no) saw Gloucestershire up to 9-410 declared. The two skippers then reached an agreement to force a result, leaving Hampshire 411 to win. They fell well short of the target, eventually all out for 212.

Middlesex 175 & 219 lost to Yorkshire 390 & 0-7 by ten wickets on Day four at Lord's

Yorkshire completed a comprehensive ten-wicket win over title chasing Middlesex to move top of the County Championship.

Chris Rogers' side were eventually shot out for 219 in their second innings to leave a minuscule victory target of five. Adil Rashid was the chief destroyer with 5-78.

The Tykes are now eight and a half points clear of Durham and 17 more ahead of Sussex.

Kent 135 & 4-254 v Glamorgan 378 on Day three at Canterbury

Us

Michael Hogan took 3-42 and Jim Allenby 2-22 as Kent were bowled out for 135 in their first innings against Glamorgan.

Following on they fought back ending the day on 4-254, Hogan taking the key wicket of Brendan Nash (50) for the second time in the match.

Durham 267 & 198 beat Warwickshire 209 & 245 by 11 runs on Day three at Durham

Them

Graham Onions kept his name in the selectors minds with 5-83 as Durham collected a thrilling 11-run victory over County champions Warwickshire.

Onions combined with Ben Stokes (3-42) on the penultimate day to shoot out The Bears who looked certain for victory when Kiwi Jeetan Patel was at the crease.

However, when Onions dismissed the spinner for 50, his second half-century in the match, last man Will Rankin followed soon after as Durham moved to second in the ladder.
