County Championship round-up: Harmison in timely nudge for selectors
Sunday 27 April 2008
He did not make as much of an impact as Matthew Hoggard, but Steve Harmison gave England's selectors a nudge yesterday with two wickets for Durham in their draw with Surrey at the Riverside. Harmison dismissed Scott Newman and Usman Afzaal as the game petered out.
Mushtaq Ahmed usually spins Sussex to fourth-day victories but dogged Kent resistance from Martin van Jaarsveld (83 not out) and James Tredwell (53), ensured a draw at Hove.
In Division Two, Australia's Chris Rogers hit 77 as Derbyshire earned a rare victory, chasing down 266 to defeat Essex, while Darren Maddy hit a century for Warwickshire as they won by two wickets at Northampton, Ian Bell chipping in with 62 as Monty Panesar took four scalps. Middlesex drew with Glamorgan at Lord's, England's forgotten man Ed Joyce making 86.
