Cricket – County Northamptonshire end Glamorgan run

Glamorgan posted 153 for seven from their 20 overs with Zimbabwean veteran Murray Goodwin top-scoring with 47 off 31 balls as Mohammad Azharullah took personal-best Twenty20 figures of four for 14.

The Steelbacks then reached their target with the final ball of the match thanks to White hammering 68 off 52 balls and Wakely smashing an unbeaten 52 off 39 deliveries, including a third-wicket stand together of 92.

In the same division, off-spinner Ateeq Javid claimed career-best Twenty20 figures of four for 17 as Warwickshire beat Gloucestershire by six wickets at Cheltenham.

The hosts were bowled out for 96 in 18.4 overs on a slow pitch and Warwickshire made relatively quick work of chasing, reaching their target with 2.5 overs to spare thanks to a match-winning knock of 33 from Varun Chopra.

A half-century from Alexei Kervezee helped Worcestershire record an eight-run win over Somerset at Taunton.

Kervezee’s score of 53 saw the visitors on their way to 168 for seven, and Somerset fell just short of their target despite the best efforts of opener Marcus Trescothick (49), with Jack Shantry and Joe Leach taking three wickets each.

James Vince hit a brutal 84 off only 49 balls to lead holders Hampshire to the top of the South Division with a seven-wicket thrashing of previous leaders Middlesex at Richmond.

Middlesex appeared to have set Hampshire a challenging total when Dawid Malan’s 77 enabled the hosts to reach 162 for five, but Vince and his opening partner Michael Carberry (43) made a mockery of it by putting on 89 in the first seven overs. Hampshire then went on to reach their target with 29 balls to spare.

Essex were six-wicket winners over Sussex thanks to a partnership of 56 between Ravi Bopara and Owais Shah. Chasing down Sussex’s 171 for nine, the pair combined in a devastating six-over period to get Essex going, with Ryan ten Doeschate’s unbeaten 42 then seeing them over the line with four balls to spare.

Lancashire moved top of the North Division with a 25-run win over Durham at Old Trafford. Karl Brown hit a career-best 62 off 42 balls and Kabir Ali claimed three for 30 as the Lightning made it three straight wins. Scott Borthwick also returned his best of 62 off 51 balls, but it was not enough for Durham to chase down Lancashire’s 170 for five.

Yorkshire survived a brilliant all-round display by Albie Morkel to claim a six-run win over Derbyshire at Chesterfield.

Morkel followed his best-ever T20 bowling figures of four for 25 with an astonishing last over assault on Liam Plunkett that almost pulled off an improbable victory for the hosts.

Derbyshire needed 32 to overhaul Yorkshire’s 142 for nine but although Morkel smashed Plunkett for three fours and two sixes, he failed to make contact with the last ball and was left unbeaten on 51 from 31 balls.
