  • Middlebrook holds up Lancashire

    James Middlebrook's stubborn unbeaten 78 fended off a three-day defeat as Northamptonshire reached 145 for 5 in the second innings of their Championship clash with Lancashire

  • Buttler shows his first-class mettle

    Jos Buttler is undoubtedly one of the most talented young players that England can currently call upon and it should therefore come as no surprise to hear he is capable of game-changing innings

    Eighteen wickets fell at Wantage Road as Northamptonshire and Lancashire punched themselves to a standstill

  • Northants 11/8 to tip up Lancs

    The two promoted sides of last season meet for the first time back in Division One of the County Championship and it's Northamptonshire providing the better value at 11/8 to beat Lancashire at Wantage Road.
