A County Practice 27/6

UPDATED 22 September, 2013 6:21PM AEDT | by Andrew Groves 2

The return of the T20 competition pitted defending champions Hampshire with Surrey and Australia fought back on day one of their tour match against Somerset overnight in England.

Hampshire 5-144 beat Surrey 6-139 by five wickets in the T20 competition at the Rose Bowl

Us

Glenn Maxwell's return to the Rose Bowl ended in defeat as defending T20 champions Hampshire got their campaign off to the best possible start with a five-wicket win over Surrey.

The visitors started sluggishly in the face of some tight bowling from Liam Dawson and Sohail Tanvir.

Maxwell made 15 coming in at four as Surrey limped to 6-139. Gary Wilson top scoring with 29.

Hampshire lost James Vince (8) cheaply in reply. But England Lions batsman Michael Carberry crashed 60 alongside Neil McKenzie (37) to see them through with four balls remaining.

Somerset 320 (Compton 81, Starc 4-33, Pattinson 4-56) v Australia 0-2 on Day one at Taunton

Us

Australia fought back on day one of their tour match against Somerset.

Dropped England opener Nick Compton hit 81 and Chris Jones 130 as they shared a second-wicket partnership of 170. Earlier former Test opener Marcus Trescothick was removed for seven by James Pattinson.

After Compton's departure, James Hildreth picked up the baton with 66 as the tourists struggled on a flat Taunton surface.

However, Pattinson and Mitchell Star dug in deep to rip through the middle order after the departure of Jones.

The home side went from 3-304 to 320 all out with Pattinson (4-56) and Starc (4-33) the chief destroyers.

James Faulkner (1-70) and Nathan Lyon (1-75) picking up the other wickets.

Ed Cowan and Shane Watson faced one over in reply and will return on 0-2 tomorrow.
