Cricket: Laney and Hayden in fightback
Friday 25 July 1997
Lancashire, resuming on 423 for 5, amassed 569 for 8 before their captain, Mike Watkinson, called a halt to the carnage. Watkinson himself finished with 135, but then Hayden and Laney put together an unbroken opening stand of 171 before bad light and then rain ended play prematurely. Hayden in the process became the second player to pass 1,000 runs for the season.
Mark Alleyne led Gloucestershire to a massive lead of 385 over Durham at Cheltenham College. The home captain hit 32 boundaries in 169 off 203 balls, while Jack Russell made an unbeaten 103. Durham were all out for 86 on the first day.
Leicestershire opener Darren Maddy furthered his claims for a place on the England A tour this winter with another high-class innings against Nottinghamshire on a rain-interrupted day at Grace Road. Maddy ended on 75 not out with Leicestershire at 143 for 3, 199 behind.
