England spinner Shoaib Bashir endured an over to forget after he went for 38 runs during day two of Worcestershire’s Vitality County Championship Division One match with Surrey.

Paul Walter and Matt Critchley helped dig Essex out of trouble against Durham with a 129-run partnership.

They trail by 338 runs with Ollie Robinson boosting his England Test hopes with 198 as the visitors secured maximum batting points.

Josh Bohannon and Luke Wells put on a record stand of 312 for Lancashire as they lead Kent by 158 runs in the first innings.

Bohannon was unbeaten on 182 while Wells hit exactly 150 as the visitors closed on 402 for four.

Tom Abell’s century led a strong response for Somerset in their clash against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.

Abell finished unbeaten on 105 and shared a 157-run third-wicket partnership with Tom Lammonby (87), before adding a further unbroken stand of 67 with James Rew as Somerset closed on 293 for four in reply to 360.

Keith Barker took a five-wicket haul to give Hampshire the upper hand against Warwickshire.

He bagged six for 74 alongside Kyle Abbott’s three for 64 as Warwickshire were dismissed for 254 and Hampshire built on their lead in the second innings to close on 88 for two.

In Division Two, Peter Handscomb continued his fine form for Leicester with 92 runs in a tough test against leaders Sussex.

Kiran Carlson made 71 and Chris Cooke scored 58 for Glamorgan while Luke Procter’s three for 36 was the best return for the visitors.

Derbyshire opener Luis Reece posted a maiden Lord’s hundred against Middlesex.

The 33-year-old shared a third-wicket stand of 111 with Wayne Madsen and brought up his century from 176 balls to reach stumps unbeaten on 123.
