Giddins Puts Brake on Yorkshire's Big Charge for Victory; Championship Review


First Division leaders Yorkshire made a steady start as they chased a target of 356 to beat Surrey at Headingley.

Yorkshire were 50 for one as rain cut short the third day, leaving the pacesetters needing a further 306 from the minimum of 96 overs available today, weather permitting.

Former Warwickshire paceman Ed Giddins claimed the one Yorkshire wicket to fall when he trapped Chris Taylor lbw, his championship debut ending on 15.

Stuart Law recorded his fourth championship century with a fine 115 to keep Essex in the hunt against Leicestershire at Chelmsford.

His latest effort was laced with 22 fours and arrived during a second-wicket partnership of 194 in 56 overs with Darren Robinson (102) as Essex, replying to a massive Leicestershire total of 559, moved to within 81 of avoiding the follow-on at 329 for seven.

Leg-spinner Shahid Afridi was Leicestershire's most successful bowler, taking three for 78.

Lancashire spinner Gary Keedy gave the Red Rose county a surprise victory chance against Glamorgan at Colwyn Bay.

Keedy, who took five wickets in the first innings, grabbed three late wickets as the home side crumbled to 86 for five, a lead of 163. …
