Caddick in command at Durham
Saturday 19 August 1995
Andy Caddick, the former England pace bowler, yesterday continued his remarkable comeback by becoming the first player to take eight wickets against Durham, as Somerset took command at Chester-le-Street.
Caddick, troubled with sore shins for over a year, followed up his knock of 61 with 8 for 69 as Durham were dismissed for 221. The visitors then cruised to 214 for 3 in their second innings to lead by 326 runs.
Adrian Rollins, the Derbyshire opener who only scored his first century a month ago, carried his bat for 200 not out as his county amassed 463 - their highest total against Gloucestershire at Bristol.
In a marathon innings of 9hr 12min, Rollins faced 453 balls before finally running out of partners, hitting 116 runs in boundaries on a hard pitch. Gloucestershire were left still needing 66 runs to avoid the follow-on as they reached 248 for 5 at the close.
At Eastbourne, Jason Lewry earned career-best figures of 6 for 43 to raise Sussex's hopes of a first Championship victory in three months.
Sussex claimed a commanding first-innings lead of 156 by skittling out Worcestershire for only 170 and, after deciding not to enforce the follow- on, the hosts extended their advantage to 355 by reaching 199 for 4 at stumps, with Neil Lenham hitting 77 not out and the captain, Alan Wells, 55.
