County Championship round-up: Kent destroyed by Davies at the double
Durham's see-saw game with Kent appears to have finally tilted in the home side's favour after Kent collapsed to 116 for 8 in pursuit of 176 for victory in the County Championship First Division game at Chester-le-Street yesterday.
A revitalised Mark Davies took 5 for 21 as Kent were dismissed in their first innings for a lowly 78 with Callum Thorp recording figures of 4 for 34.
Durham were then bowled out for 108 in their second innings as Robbie Joseph, with a career-best 6 for 32, and Ryan McLaren savaged the batting. Kent then collapsed from 96 for 3 to 116 for 8 as Davies picked up 4 for 16 before bad light stopped play.
Adil Rashid took seven wickets for 107 runs as Yorkshire dismissed Hampshire for the same first-innings score as their own – 236 – at The Rose Bowl. They were career-best figures for the promising leg-spinner, whose victims included Michael Brown and Michael Carberry – who shared in an opening-wicket stand of 82. Earlier, Hampshire took Yorkshire's three remaining wicket for 30 runs to wrap up their innings with Jacques Rudolph top-scoring with 89.
Nottinghamshire added just 45 runs to their overnight total as they were bowled out for 230 by Somerset at Taunton. The captain, Chris Read, was unbeaten on 74. Somerset's openers, Justin Langer and Marcus Trescothick, made amends for their poor first innings with half-centuries in an unbroken first-wicket stand of 114.
