Mark Wood took three wickets on his return to Durham XI against Warwickshire

Mark Wood and Ben Raine provided Durham with the perfect start to their LV = Insurance County Championship clash against Warwickshire at Emirates Riverside, knocking out the visitors for 87.

Raine was exceptional, claiming numbers 5-9, while Wood kept pace with 3-28. Warwickshire was rocked by the home side and was at a 30-8 stage.

The tail wagged thanks to Craig Miles and Liam Norwell, but visitors produced their lowest total since 2015.

Durham poured out agony for holding the Midlands topping their lossless first-set score, ending day one with a lead of one.

Sir Alastair Cook marked his first cent of 2021 to put Essex in the ascendant the first day against Worcestershire at New Road.

A cold day, slow ground and no spectator could be a more stark contrast than when Cook ended his international career in a crowded Kia Oval with a 33rd Test 100 for England against India three years ago.

But Cook’s motivation and determination are still at a remarkably high level for someone who has accomplished so much in nearly two decades for club and country and the 36-year-old has gone on to make 115 as Essex closed on 266-2 against 96 overs.

Jordan Clark won a career best 6-21 as Surrey dismissed the leaders of group two Hampshire for 92 at the Kia Oval, then scored 131-1 in response.

Rory Burns and Hashim Amla struck masterfully on a green tinted pitch as Surrey took complete control of the game after just one day.

This was after Clark, constantly finding movement away from righties, destroyed the Hampshire-shaped hitting lineup in cold, cloudy conditions. Kemar Roach and Rikki Clarke each played with two wickets, goaltender Ben Foakes finishing with five catches and Clarke three.

Ben Slater celebrated centuries before Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire collapsed dramatically when 18 wickets fell on opening day in Derby. Derbyshire vs Notts scoreboard

The former Derbyshire opener scored 107 on 191 balls, sharing a third counter of 163 with Joe Clarke who made 66, but innings imploded with eight wickets falling for 62 points as Fynn Hudson-Prentice took home the best career numbers 4-36 and Ben Aitchison took 3-27 to squeeze Notts out for 256.

Stuart Broad responded by taking 2-22 before Luke Fletcher, 3-23, and Dane Paterson, 2-28, left Derbyshire in shock at 86-8 at the close.

Marnus Labuschagne suffered a scare of injury as he fell down a few steps on what was otherwise a good day for Glamorgan in their confrontation with Kent. Glamorgan vs Kent Scoreboard

Australian superstar Labuschagne was back in Glamorgan’s squad after arriving in Cardiff only on Monday, but suffered a hand problem falling onto the pitch before play started.

The third-best try-beater in the world missed part of the afternoon session while his hand was evaluated. He returned to the field as Kent was knocked out for just 138.

David Lloyd claimed 4-11 and Timm Van Der Gugten 4-41. Glamorgan finished the first matchday 109-2 in response, behind just 29 points. Labuschagne was sacked for just 11.

Ben Sanderson played in form Adam Lyth with the first ball of the match and Wayne Parnell won five wickets as Northamptonshire dominated the opening day against Yorkshire to Emerald Headingley. Yorkshire vs Northants Scoreboard

Lyth was England’s top scorer in the county championship heading into the fourth round, with his run of 488 points that sparked talk of a test recall after a six-year absence.

But the southpaw was knocked down as he carried his arms to seamstress Sanderson, whose two wickets supported the stunning South African Parnell in Yorkshire 206. Northants was 36-0 at the close.

Sam Evans’ Third Century First Class Helped Leicestershire dominate the opening day against Gloucestershire in Bristol as they did 264-4 after being dispatched. Gloucs vs Leics scoreboard

Evans, 23, followed his 138 at The Oval in the second round with 102 here.
