Shahzad Trio Hands Tykes Advantage; COUNTY CRICKET

Article excerpt

AJMAL Shahzad took three wickets in an over to tip the balance in Yorkshire's favour on the first day of their County Championship match with Hampshire at Basingstoke.

Shahzad dismissed Dimitri Mascarenhas with his first delivery to a catch at the wicket, then knocked back the off-stump of Chris Tremlett next ball.

Imran Tahir managed to avert the hat-trick but with the last ball of the over Shahzad had wicketkeeper Tom Burrows leg before.

Shahzad finished with figures of 4-72 from 22 overs as Hampshire struggled to 250 all out.

Yorkshire reduced the deficit by 13 without loss from the three overs remaining of the day's play.

Gary Keedy celebrated his England Lions call-up by claiming six wickets as Lancashire put leaders Durham on the back foot at Old Trafford.

The 34-year-old spinner bowled 36 overs to finish with 6-85.

And fellow Stephen Parry chipped in with 2-51 as Durham were bowled out for 270 in their first innings just before close.
