Hogg has Lancashire batsmen in trouble

Warwickshire 410 Lancashire 167-3

Brad Hogg took two late wickets to ensure Warwickshire stayed in control after Lancashire had initially fought back in an attritional day of cricket in the County Championship cricket here yesterday.

The hosts reduced Warwickshire from their overnight total of 308 for 4 to 410 all out shortly after lunch, taking the last six wickets for 64 runs.

The Red Rose side then progressed to 167 for 3 at the close, trailing by 243 runs in this First Division match. Hogg took the important wickets of both Lancashire's overseas players. Dinesh Mongia (15) drove a delivery straight back to the bowler at 130 for 2, then 18 runs later Carl Hooper - after depositing him for two sixes - was caught at long-on trying for a third.

Ian Bell and Dougie Brown then moved their partnership to 254, a record fifth-wicket stand at Old Trafford for any team.

Bell fell shortly after playing a slightly loose shot outside off-stump, this time against Dominic Cork - and, second time around, Hooper made no mistake at slip as Bell departed for 112 with the score on 346.

Cork bowled an impressive spell during the morning session and grabbed another wicket four balls later when he trapped Brad Hogg lbw for a duck.

Tony Frost (six) went next as he edged Gary Keedy behind with the score on 361. Then, seven runs later, Neil Carter was also caught by the wicketkeeper. Through this clatter of wickets Brown was still going and had passed 150. He slog-swept Keedy through midwicket off one ball but was caught at mid-on attempting a repeat.

His wicket gave Lancashire their full set of bowling points in the last of the 130 overs where bonus points are collectable.

But Lancashire were then frustrated by a 10th-wicket stand of 30 on 14 overs between Naqaash Tahir and Alan Richardson - which was broken when Richardson (17) skied Chris Schofield to short cover.

Gary Keedy finished with 5 for 109 to extend his lead as Lancashire's highest wicket-taker. Lancashire set about their innings very sedately, reaching 32 before Mark Chilton (19) was undone by a very good yorker from Carter.

However, none of the other bowlers looked particularly threatening as Sutcliffe (67 not out) reached his half-century from 152 balls.
