Dean Jones, with 93, led the way as his Derbyshire side scored 409 to take a first-innings lead of 180 on the second day of the tour match against the Indians at Derby yesterday.

Karl Krikken, who made 70, became the first in Derbyshire's history to be out handling the ball when he chopped a delivery from Javagal Srinath towards his stumps and swatted the ball away with his left hand, only the 43rd dismissal of its kind in the first-class game.

The tourists lost Ajay Jadeja, lbw to the promising left-armer Kevin Dean, in the eighth over of their second innings.

Courtney Walsh, with 6 for 57 gave Gloucestershire a chance of victory against Sussex at Bristol. The visitors were all out for 231 in their second innings, leaving Gloucestershire 238 to win.

A sixth-wicket partnership of 157 between Paul Nixon (66) and Aftab Habib (77no) put Leicestershire back into contention against Surrey at The Oval. They came together with Leicestershire at 65 for 5 chasing Surrey's first- innings 452. By the close they were 222 for 6.

An unbeaten fifth-wicket stand of 66 between Graham Cowdrey and Mark Ealham helped second-placed Kent to 215 for 4 after Middlesex had been bowled out for 441 at Canterbury.
