Onions turns on the style

April 13, 2012 08:45:28 UK

Only Jimmy Taylor passed 30 as Nottinghamshire were dismissed for 161 with Graham Onions reminding the selectors that he is far from a spent force.

However, Andre Adams has been a consistent wicket-taker for the visitors and he took two early wickets to bring his side back into the game. Dale Benkenstein will once more be a key man for Durham and can top score as he looks to rebuild the innings.

Champions Lancashire know that Aigburth is a result wicket but will be disappointed that only Steven Croft (50) and captain Glen Chapple (23) made it past ten. Their total of 124 was mainly due to James Anyon's 5-36.

Chapple and Hogg then reduced Sussex to 4-2 but Ed Joyce and a belligerent knock from skipper Michael Yardy had Sussex ahead before the close.

Lancashire have brought in Ashwell Prince to replace Mark Chilton to strengthen their batting but it still looks their Achilles heel as it has proved on day one.

Don't forget all of the fantastic markets we have to offer, including In-Play betting, can be accessed on your mobile phone with the new and improved Mobile at bet365.

Middlesex are another team who will relish the inclusion of a senior batsman as soon as Andrew Strauss returns to action. They looked well placed at 86-2 but a three-wicket burst from Jade Dernbach ripped the heart out of the batting and it was left to Dawid Malan to hold the side together with an undefeated half-century.

Eoin Morgan is away on IPL duty and Surrey will sense the chance of an opening victory.

Lancashire are 12.00 to win this year's Twenty20 competition while Surrey can be backed at 7.00, Sussex at 11.00 and Middlesex at 13.00.

Chris Wright proved an inspired loan signing for Warwickshire last season and continued in the same vein as he and Keith Barker reduced Somerset to 44-5, a position from which they did not recover.

Their total of 147 demanded early wickets and they did manage three but Varun Chopra and Darren Maddy have steadied the ship and the hosts will look to build a useful lead on day two.
