Cricket – County Kerrigan has Glamorgan in a spin

On a day in which the runs flowed all across the country Kerrigan proved his growing status, earning reward for his 49.1 overs of toil with figures of seven for 162.

The 24-year-old grabbed seven-for against Northamptonshire last week to send Lancashire top of the Second Division, but his side looked set for a second long, hot day in the field as Glamorgan’s veteran right-hander Murray Goodwin’s racked up 194.

Goodwin cracked 21 boundaries in his innings but fell to Kerrigan – who now has 39 Championship wickets to be the most prolific slow bowler this term – as Glamorgan lost their final six batsmens for 66 runs to be bowled out for 474.

Kerrigan grabbed five of those to allow Lancashire to find a way back into the game, reaching the close at 93 without loss thanks to openers Luis Reece (42) and Karl Brown (48).

Laurie Evans’ scored his first Championship century as Division One champions Warwickshire also piled on the runs against Nottinghamshire at Edgbaston.

The 25-year-old, who made his first-class debut six years ago, almost turned his first ton into something more significant before finally falling for 178 in a total of 463.

There were also plenty of runs in the only other game at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury.

Hampshire opener Michael Carberry’s 154 helped the visitors to 405 for nine declared before Robert Key responded with a century of his own in Kent’s 200 for one.

Key was unbeaten on 105 after combining in a 163-run stand with Daniel Bell-Drummond, who will resume on Wednesday on 74.
