The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport | Cricket - Bob Wil­lis Tro­phy

Fynn Hudson-Pren­tice’s 91 not out guided Der­byshire to their high­est suc­cess­ful run chase against a county side with a ball to spare over Not­ting­hamshire at Trent Bridge.

The all-rounder’s 169-ball in­nings took the vis­i­tors to their 365-run tar­get off the penul­ti­mate de­liv­ery to se­cure a three-wicket vic­tory in the North Group.

De­feat left Notts, who lost fast bowler Joey Evi­son with a foot in­jury early on the fi­nal day, still look­ing for their first County Cham­pi­onship win since June 2018, de­spite hav­ing re­duced their op­po­nents to 234 for six.

Dawid Malan and Harry Brook helped York­shire get off the mark with a six-wicket vic­tory over Durham at

Emi­rates River­side. Re­quir­ing 68 on the fi­nal day, the White Rose were frus­trated by rain be­fore debu­tant Malan fin­ished with 73 and Brook – who fin­ished things off with back-to-back sixes – 66 not out to take them to their 171-run tar­get.

Sur­rey-bound Jamie Over­ton led the way at Taun­ton with five for

48 to com­plete Som­er­set’s 289-run vic­tory over Glam­or­gan in the Mid­lands Group. Brother Craig fin­ished with two for 31 and match fig­ures of seven for 69 as the vis­i­tors’ five re­main­ing wick­ets fell for 40 runs on the fi­nal morn­ing af­ter they had re­sumed on 126 for five, 329 be­hind. Northamp­ton­shire es­caped with a draw against War­wick­shire at Edg­bas­ton af­ter sev­en­th­wicket pair Adam Ross­ing­ton (135 not out) and Luke Proc­ter (112 not out) bat­ted through the fi­nal day. Le­ices­ter­shire cap­tain Colin Ack­er­mann led the charge to a seven-wicket vic­tory over Lan­cashire with just eight balls re­main­ing. Ack­er­mann fin­ished on

73 not out off 41 balls as the Foxes chased down their tar­get of 150 off 17 overs, af­ter Lan­cashire were bowled out for 236.

Mid­dle­sex claimed max­i­mum points with a 190-run win over Sur­rey at the Oval.

The hosts were set an un­likely 314 for vic­tory. Sam Rob­son took two wick­ets in two balls with his oc­ca­sional leg-spin to help spark vic­tory, as Sur­rey lost their last five wick­ets for four runs.

Es­sex edged past Kent in a thrilling two-wicket vic­tory thanks to Sam Cook and Adam Wheater. Start­ing the day re­quir­ing 202 to win the hosts re­quired 31 runs when Cook and wick­et­keeper Wheater came to­gether fol­low­ing a bat­ting col­lapse inspired by Ivan Thomas’s four wick­ets in 16 balls, but the pair saw their side home.

Well timed: Fynn Hudson-Pren­tice se­cured the win with a ball to spare
