CC : Collated Match Reports for R19, 9-13 Sep 1993

CC 1993: County Championship Matches, Round 19, 09-13 Sep 1993
(Incomplete) Match Reports.
All matches rain-affected. Little play nationwide on Days 2 & 4

Day 1 : 09 Sep 1993
Northants cashed in on a dismal Derbys batting display  to  boost
their  chances  of a lucrative championship pay day. Allan Lamb`s
team ran through their oponents with Kevin Curran claiming   4-35
as  they  slumped  to  127 all out in just 35 overs.  Skipper Kim
Bar- nett helped steer his side to a  respectable  total  with  a
battling 53. Northants reached 3-0 at the close.
Day 3 : 11 Sep 1993
Curtly Ambrose fired a warning to England`s  winter  tourists  by
returning   his  best  county  figures  in  three  years  to lift
Northants into second place.  The giant West Indian paceman  took
6-49  as  his  side  won  by  an innings and 46 runs against Der-
byshire.  Derbys had no answer to him and once  he  had   reduced
them  to 57-5 any hopes they had of scoring 241 to make the visi-
tors bat again had vanished.

Day 4 : 13 Sep 1993
Glamorgan edged to their ninth win of the season with a nail bit-
ing  triumph  over Essex with 37 balls remaining. After declaring
at 217-5, Steve Bastien claimed 6-53 as Essex slumped to 217  all
out  with  Steve  Watkin  claiming his 90th wicket of the season.
Jonathan Lewis hit a battling 54 as Essex vainly bidded for  vic-
tory while Mark Ilott and Peter Such staged a defiant ninth wick-
et stand of 41.

Day 1 : 09 Sep 1993
Andy Pick and Chris Lewis combined to put Gloucestershire on  the
rack  on  the first day of their championship clash with Notts at
Bristol. Pick bagged 2-29 while England reject Lewis claimed 2-36
as Gloucs struggled to 132-5 before rain halted play. Chris Broad
hit a battling 21 in 97 minutes while Bobby Dawson made a defiant
30 after Pick bowled opener Dean Hodgson with his first delivery.
Day 4 : 13 Sep 1993
Rain thwarted Gloucestershire`s victory charge as  Notts  made  a
present  of easy runs in a bid to force a result at a weather hit
Bristol. Gloucs smashed 173 in an hour as  batsmen  Paul  Pollard
and  Wayne  Dessaur helped Martyn Ball (71) and Bobby Dawson (58)
put a 130 run stand. Gloucs had declared at 232-4 but Notts  fin-
ished on 155-6 after the rain hit 104 runs short of victory.

HAMPSHIRE v LEICS: Southampton
Day 1 : 09 Sep 1993
David Millns continued his return from injury with  a  five  star
performance  against Hampshire at Southampton. The Leicestershire
star recovering from an achilles tendon operation  took  5-21  as
Hampshire were dismissed for a dismal 115. His five wicket return
takes his tally to 23 in eight championship innings to boost  his
claims for an England-A call to South Africa this winter.

Day 1 : 09 Sep 1993
Mike Gatting hit an impressive 54 not  out  to  impress  watching
England  boss  Keith Fletcher and then hinted he may step down as
Middlesex skipper. Gatting`s innings helped the champions reached
136-2 against Lancashire on a rain shortened first day.  It would
be unfair for me to stay on too long and I`ve got to  judge  when
it`s best for the club for me to stand down said Gatting.
Day 3 : 11 Sep 1993
Mark Ramprakash made a patient century as new champions Middlesex
reached  328-7  against  Lancashire  at Lord`s.  Ramprakash`s un-
beaten 117 was only his second first class ton of the summer  and
was perfectly timed with England`s tour of the Caribbean in mind.
When play finally got underway after lunch he  and  Mike  Gatting
put  on  131  for  the third wicket before Gatting was caught off
Philip DeFreitas.

Day 1 : 09 Sep 1993
Openers Andy Mole and Jason Ratcliffe made Warwicks` first centu-
ry  stand since July 1 in a rain hit day against Somerset at Edg-
baston. The pair put on an unbroken 111 in between a long   delay
for  overnight  rain and an early finish through bad light. Moles
hit eight fours in an unbeaten 53 while Ratcliffe reached 44 hit-
ting  six  boundaries  as Warwicks reached 111-0 at the premature
Day 3 : 11 Sep 1993
Mushtaq Ahmed showed his versatility as Somerset and Warwickshire
juggled  to  revive a rain hit match at Edgbaston.  The Pakistani
Test star bowled left arm spin and medium pace to grab  6-55   as
Warwicks  slumped  to  282.  Somerset  then declared at 61-0.  In
Warwickshire`s second innings, Andy Moles and Jason Ratcliffe put
on  162  for the first wicket before Mushtaq struck. Warwickshire
reached 118-1 and declared at the close, leaving Somerset a  tar-
get of 340 on the final day for victory.
Day 4 : 13 Sep 1993
Overnight rain prevented any play before lunch  and  the  umpires
and Warwickshire wanted to start at 2pm., but Somerset disagreed.
Believing his team could no longer win, acting-captain harden ob-
jected  to  playing in conditions no different from those earlier
deemed unfit. A telephone call to lord`s produced a  ruling  that
upheld his view and Warwickshire`s final home-game was thus aban-
doned, leaving spectators baffled. (D4 report based on 1994  Wis-

Day 1 : 09 Sep 1993
Neil Lenham brightened up a rain hit day at Scarborough after the
weather  restricted  play to just 35 overs. Lenham hammered 27 in
22 balls as Sussex reached 97-2 at tea having won the toss before
the  weather  cut the day`s play short. His quickfire innings was
ended by Peter Hartley who also sent back Keith Greenfield to end
a vital 52 run partnership with Bill Athey.
