Tim Murtagh picked up 3 wickets for 32 runs.

Middlesex vs Durham

Ben Raine and Chris Rushworth shared five wickets between themselves to reduce Middlesex to 87/7, trailing Durham by 60 runs at the end of Day 1 of their County Division 2 clash on Tuesday (September 10). That after Durham were bowled out for 147 on the back of Steven Finn's four-wicket haul and Tim Murtagh's three. Middlesex would've been mighty pleased after they bowled out Durham cheaply after they opted to bowl. Minus Peter Handscomb, who scored a half-century, only the opening stand was anything of worth fetching them 56 before a collapse began.

Brief scores: Durham 147 (Peter Handscomb 54; Steven Finn 4-41, Tim Murtagh 3-32) lead Middlesex 87/7 (Dawid Malan 24; Ben Raine 3-12) by 60 runs.

Lancashire vs Derbyshire

Skipper Billy Godleman led Derbyshire with a century to take them to 244 before being bowled out, with the next-best score being Wayne Madsen's 27. Richard Gleeson's five-wicket haul and Saqib Mahmood's three was instrumental in keeping Derbyshire in check after they opted to bat. In reply, Ravi Rampaul struck early as Lancashire went to Stumps on 20/1.

Brief scores: Derbyshire 244 (Billy Godleman 111; Richard Gleeson 5-64) lead Lancashire 20/1 by 224 runs.

Leicestershire vs Northamptonshire

Leicestershire went to stumps with 276 on the board, losing eight wickets in the bargain after three half-centuries after Northamptonshire opted to bowl.
