County Championship: Lancashire on top in Liverpool

First published in Sport

Lancashire hit back to seize the initiative in their County Championship Division One match with Middlesex.

The hosts resumed day two on 276-4 but after Ashwell Prince (144) had passed his highest score for the county, they lost six wickets for 71 runs in a batting collapse so familiar to this season.

Ollie Rayner (3-88) was the key bowler as Lancashire’s once promising position disappeared and they were all out for 392.

But Middlesex then stumbled to 95-5 with Ajmal Shahzad (2-26) getting rid of Eoin Morgan for eight.

However, former Haslingden wicketkeeper John Simpson led something of a recovery as he made an unbeaten 28 as Middlesex closed on 155-5, 237 runs behind.
