Cricket round-up: India suffer Tuffey torment to hand Black Caps victory

New Zealand produced an inspired bowling performance to secure a 200-run win as India were bowled out for 88 – their lowest 50-over score for 10 years – in the first one-day international of the tri-series in Sri Lanka yesterday.

Daryl Tuffey returned figures of 3 for 34, while Jacob Oram and Kyle Mills claimed two wickets each as India's pursuit of 289 folded in embarrassing fashion. A 190-run partnership between New Zealand captain, Ross Taylor (95), and Scott Styris (89) had laid the groundwork and victory was secured with more than 20 overs to spare.

India began brightly enough, the openers Virender Sehwag and Dinesh Karthik putting on 39 for the first wicket, but after they fell to successive deliveries from Mills and Tuffey India collapsed, all 10 wickets falling for 49 runs, six of them to catches in the slips.

Earlier, India's pacemen had reduced New Zealand to 28 for 3 as Praveen Kumar snapped up Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson and Ashish Nehra squeezed out Peter Ingram. But Styris and Taylor steadied the ship thereafter, the latter completing his 16th one-day 50 before Styris reached his 25th. Neither could continue to a century, however. Styris smashed Pragyan Ojha for a huge six over long on but was bowled just two balls later and then Taylor went leg before to Nehra before Tuffey boosted the total with a few hefty blows.

In the County Championship, the veteran left-arm spinner Gary Keedy took a career-best 7-68 in 21.2 overs as 18 wickets fell in a day at Old Trafford, but Lancashire face a struggle to avoid defeat against a Durham side fighting to avoid the ignominy of following back-to-back titles with relegation from the First Division.

Keedy, 35, who has returned to action only in the last few weeks after breaking his collarbone in a pre- season friendly, led a Lancashire fightback after the collapse of their first innings, which saw their last six wickets fall for 50 runs in 18.2 overs in the morning session as they were dismissed for 181. The Durham slow left-armer Ian Blackwell took 5 for 78 and Steve Harmison enjoyed a productive spell that yielded three wickets for 17 in nine overs.

On a spin-friendly pitch, Lancashire turned to Keedy with Durham's reply just eight overs old and he struck with only his third delivery as Gordon Muchall was caught behind with the last ball before lunch, and he followed it with another soon after the interval, trapping Mark Stoneman leg before.

Keedy took two more wickets in the afternoon session and completed his haul with three more after tea, but an 83-run partnership between Blackwell, who made 65, and Dale Benkenstein for the fourth wicket gave Durham's innings vital substance, which was built on by Ben Stokes (32) and Scott Borthwick (30) to give Durham a 56-run lead. The value of that advantage was enhanced when Lancashire lost both their openers before the close and they begin the third day trailing by 34.

At Taunton, where no play was possible until five o'clock because of rain, Hampshire's innings faded rapidly in the face of pace and swing as Alfonso Thomas and Charl Willoughby combined to take the last five wickets for 32 runs in 37 deliveries. Willoughby bowled Dan Christian and Michael Bates in the same over while Thomas had Sean Ervine (48) caught on the hook before trapping James Tomlinson leg before to the next ball. Willoughby finished the innings with figures of for 4-80 when the Hampshire captain, Dominic Cork, holed out to long off. Title-chasing Somerset lost their captain, Marcus Trescothick, to a return catch off bat and pad as they limped to 16 for 1 at the close.

Chesney Hughes struck a career-best 156 as Derbyshire hit 319 against Northamptonshire, for whom Elton Chigumbura finished with 5 for 92, but the visitors take a lead of 63 into the third day at Chesterfield.
