In today's round of National League matches, an unbeaten 107 from Mike Hussey helped Gloucestershire to a six-wicket win against Kent in the only Division One clash of the day. In Division Two, Owais Shah cracked 105 not out as Middlesex held off Yorkshire by 16 runs at Southgate, and Somerset fell just six runs short of their target against Sussex at Taunton. Elsewhere, Andrew Hall's 70 not out helped Worcestershire to a comfortable win over Derbyshire, while Marcus North guided Durham to victory against Notts at Cleethorpes with 121 not out. Another unbeaten century, by Leicestershire's Darren Robinson, secured a six-wicket win against Scotland at Edinburgh.
