County cricket: Glamorgan topple Sussex, Lancashire struggle at Notts – as it happened

Lancashire then subsided as Dillon Pennington, who must be in England notebooks, sawed through the top order, and Dane Paterson and Lydon James did the rest. Tom Hartley and Matty Hurst swung the bat at the end, but at six wickets down, Lancashire still need another 72 to avoid an innings defeat.

Glamorgan handed top of the table Sussex a three-day spanking by nine wickets at Cardiff. Andy Gorvin grabbed a career-best five for 40, and, with help from Mir Hamza and Mason Crane, Sussex subsided for 188 in their second innings, leaving Glamorgan 56 to win. They knocked that off in less than eight overs for their first Championship victory since May last year.

Kemar Roach’s six for 46 put Surrey in sight of a third Championship win on the bounce against Warwickshire at The Oval. With Rory Burns and Dom Sibley at the crease, Surrey need only another 58. Jamie Smith’s magical 155, and a partnership of 115 with the big-hitting Sean Abbot, tonked Surrey to maximum batting points.

A high-scoring draw looks on the cards on the docile pitch at Hampshire’s Rose Bowl, where David Bedingham took Durham past the follow-on target and to safety with 140, his second century of the summer. Liam Dawson toiled through a personal record 62 overs, and was rewarded with a five-fer

Cameron Bancroft clipped an unbeaten 130 to put Gloucestershire in an excellent position against Northamptonshire. Set 558 to win, Emilio Gay went on the offensive, his 74 an exciting mix of luck and finesse.

At Canterbury, Jack Leaning batted all day for a tenacious 152 not out, giving Kent the ghost of a chance of survival against Worcestershire. Kent are still 256 behind, but the pitch is a welcoming doormat. Beyers Swanepoel hit 54 on his debut

Whether he wants to play in one or both of those we’ll wait and see but he will let us know.

“If he feels like he still wants to continue playing after that final Test match then we would be over the moon to have him, but we would understand if he doesn’t. He has had more than his fair share of overs and blood in his boots, but if he feels like he still wants to contribute and play for Lancs we’d be delighted to have him.

“And if he does decide he is going to finish playing county cricket before the Lord’s Test, then his last game at Emirates Old Trafford will be a massive event, that’s for sure.”
