Lancashire ended the first day three runs behind Hampshire with nine wickets in hand after a fine display with bat and ball
Hampshire scamper through for a quick single, the thud of boots on bone-dry pitch is deep and loud. One of the houses round the ground has cut down some of their back garden trees so there will be few shady areas as the sun rises.
Make that Derbyshire 15-4. Fisher and Coad share the wickets. Shan Masood licks his lips against his old county.
