Procter turns the screw on Hampshire
Lancashire look well set to build a massive lead on the second day of this Specsavers County Championship Division One clash with Hampshire after a second wicket partnership of 173 between Luke Procter and Haseeb Hameed saw the Red Rose advance their advantage to 117 runs with eight wickets intact.
Procter remained unbeaten at the break on 84 and will be hoping to reach only his second first class century sometime this afternoon.
The 19-year-old Hameed will think he should also be coming out to bat after lunch following two sessions of almost flawless defence saw him reach his third first class half-century off 183 balls.
But in the last over before lunch his fellow teenager Mason Crane got one to spin from outside the leg stump and feather Hameed’s edge, James Vince snaffling the catch at slip as Hameed departed for 62 and leave Lancashire 226-2 at the interval.
