Round-up: Patel leads the way for in-form Bears

 

Jeetan Patel's four wickets helped Warwickshire make it three
wins from three Clydesdale Bank 40 Group C games with an easy
eight-wicket victory over Northamptonshire yesterday.

The New Zealand spinner took a superb 4 for 27 and Keith Barker 3 for 27 as the home side were bundled out for only 148, with only Alex Wakely providing any resistance in making 62 off 78 balls. Warwickshire were comfortably able to chase down their small target with 44 deliveries to spare as Varun Chopra made an unbeaten 87 from 117 balls.

Gary Ballance's unbeaten century carried Yorkshire to an eight-wicket win over the Unicorns at Scarborough. Left-armers Ryan Sidebottom and Mitchell Starc took three wickets apiece as the visitors were bowled out for 184 despite an unbeaten 83 from keeper Tom New.

Yorkshire slipped to 26 for 2 but Adam Lyth (60 not out) joined Ballance – who hit 103 from 91 balls with eight fours and four sixes – in an unbroken stand of 160.

A Michael Carberry hundred and a fluent half-century from Jimmy Adams led Hampshire to a comfortable nine-wicket Group B win over Somerset, their third in succession.

The two openers set their side on course to easily chase down a target of 213 with a stand of 103 in 14 overs before Adams fell for 56.

Carberry went on to score an unbeaten 103 off 83 balls, with a six and 14 fours, as the visitors skated to victory with more than 11 overs to spare.

Somerset had posted 212 for 9 after losing the toss, Nick Compton (81) and Jos Buttler (71) sharing a fourth-wicket stand of 121.

Scotland's second highest 40-over total proved nowhere near enough to test Durham in their match at Chester-le-Street.

A century by South African left-hander Jean Symes propelled the Saltires to 258 for 4 after being put in. But under cloudless skies on a run-laden pitch Durham cruised to an eight-wicket victory with 6.3 overs to spare. Mark Stoneman made his maiden one-day hundred, remaining unbeaten on 136 off 117 balls, and Phil Mustard contributed 91 to an opening stand of 207.

Phil Hughes marked his return to county cricket after a two-year break by blasting a century on his Clydesdale Bank 40 debut for Worcestershire against former club Middlesex in Group A.

Three days after flying into England, the Australian batsman led the Royals' late dash to 235 for 5 and left-arm paceman Jack Shantry sealed a 56-run victory with three wickets in an over as Middlesex folded for 179. Hughes first played in England with Middlesex prior to a disappointing Ashes series in 2009 and he re-appeared in the following season for a short spell with Hampshire.
