Warwickshire were denied their third successive win as Hampshire's last pair of Derek Kenway and Jim Bovill held out for 43 balls at Southampton. Bovill joined the teenaged Kenway, making his debut, at 260 for 9 and survived several appeals.

Hampshire had been set a target of 335 to win in 72 overs and at 248 for 5 they were on target. But then Matthew Hayden, who made 119 to follow his unbeaten 235 in the first innings, was caught in the deep off Ashley Giles and Hampshire fell away.

Dougie Brown took five wickets for Warwickshire after some occasional bowling by Hampshire had helped them to 252 for 1 in only 27 overs. Nick Knight and David Hemp scored centuries.

Glamorgan needed 33 overs to claim the six remaining wickets they needed to defeat Durham and claim their second victory of the season by an innings and eight runs. Not even a valiant 149 by John Morris, his first century of the season and the 43rd of his career, could save Durham. Waqar Younis took 4 for 56.

Three wickets in 11 balls forced Somerset to retreat for a draw at the end of an unmemorable contest with Worc- estershire at New Road, while Yorkshire duly wrapped up a two-wicket win at Ilford by scoring the six they needed.
