  • Day One

    Kyle Jarvis took a Lancashire best of 6-70 to give Steven Croft’s side the advantage on the first day of this Specsavers County Championship match after they bowled Surrey out for 191. Lancashire ended the day on 16-0, 175 runs behind.

    Lancashire made one change to the side with Tom Smith replacing Karl Brown at the top of the order. Following on from his return to the side in the previous day’s T20 match, it meant Smith was playing his first Championship match in thirteen month after successfully recovering from his back operation last year.

    Surrey won the toss and elected to bat, but it was Lancashire’s bowlers who made a dream start, claiming three wickets in the opening 30 minutes.

    Tom Bailey found some extra bounce from the Statham End to surprise Arun Harinath, the left-handed batsman edging behind to Alex Davies for 5.

    Then Kyle Jarvis struck twice in the 8th over, trapping Kumar Sangakkara lbw for 0 and three balls later finding the edge of Steven Davies’ bat with namesake Alex pouching a straightforward catch.

    That left the visitors on 25-3 and it easily could have been worse for Surrey with Rory Burns beaten outside off stump on several occasions while Jason Roy survived a difficult chance at gully when on nought, and was fortunate to get off the mark from a leading edge that just cleared mid-off moments later, Bailey the unlucky bowler on both occasions.

    Roy perished soon afterwards however when he chipped Jarvis to Luke Procter at mid-off for 2, and he was soon followed back to the dressing room by Ben Foakes who, having driven splendidly for four, was bowled for 13 after he shouldered arms to a Jarvis delivery that nipped back to leave the visitors in deep trouble on 40-5.

    Jarvis finally took a well-earned rest 30 minutes before lunch with the outstanding figures of 4-32 from his 10 over stint, and Surrey managed to survive several huge appeals to make it through to lunch on 76-5 with Burns still there on 32 and James Burke on 13 not out.

    Rain then took 20 overs from the day’s allocation and it was 3.30pm before the players returned to the middle.

    Burns and Burke continued to build on their earlier work during the afternoon with Burns punching a back foot drive square of point for four while Burke brought up the 50 partnership off 95 balls by clipping Jarvis to the mid-wicket boundary.

    Burke then drove Jarvis on either side of the wicket for successive fours two overs later to bring up the hundred for the visitors as batting conditions eased during the afternoon.

    Undeterred, Jarvis continued to pitch the ball up and was rewarded when Burke, pushing forward, edged low to Liam Livingstone at first slip for 31. That broke a partnership of 64 runs in 20 overs and landed Jarvis his fifth-wicket of the day and leave Surrey on 104-6 in the 38th over.

    Tom Curran punched a back foot drive through cover for four at the start of his innings before Jarvis produced a beauty, moving the ball away off the seam, to claim his sixth wicket as the batsman edged to Davies for 10 with the score 114-7.

    Surrey fought back with the best partnership of the innings, Burns reaching his half century off 123 balls on the stroke of tea with Surrey 126-7, and the visitors played some attacking cricket after the break.

    Burns in particular took the game back to Lancashire, pulling and driving to great effect in an 8th wicket partnership with Batty that quickly realised 68 runs from 15.4 overs.

    Their resistance was broken when Smith took a difficult diving catch at 2nd slip off Neil Wagner to dismiss Batty for 21.

    The innings ended swiftly as Wagner took two further wickets to finish with 3-52, bowling Pillans second ball for 0 and then finally ending Burns’ excellent innings, trapping the Surrey opener lbw for 92.

    It left Surrey 191 all out with Jarvis becoming the first Red Rose pace bowler to take five wickets or more against Surrey at Emirates Old Trafford since Wasim Akram’s 5-52 in 1989.

    Tom Smith and Haseeb Hameed had 12 overs to negotiate to the close which they reached safely on 16-0, Smith on 7 and Hameed with 5.

    Kyle Jarvis was pleased to have been among the wickets today.

    “The way Tom Bailey started us off and then to go and knock them (Surrey) over the way we did, it was fantastic.

    “The pitch had a bit in it this morning, and it’s hopefully helped to set us up for a good game,” he said.

    “If we can bat big and get a really good score, it will put us in a good position and Simon Kerrigan will play a big part as it starts to turn.

    And Jarvis revealed he wasn’t too concerned about his wicket haul going into today’s game.

    “I haven’t got as many wickets as I would have liked in the first few games,” he said. “But I was bowling well and knew a big haul was just round the corner. I was really happy it was today and hopefully I can get a few more.

    “Whenever you are opening the bowling with Jimmy Anderson and have Neil Wagner coming on first change, it’s going to be pretty special. It’s been fantastic to learn from them and bowl with them.

    Lancashire’s bowling attack this season has been described as relentless, and Jarvis agreed.

    “We keep coming at you. That’s how we squeeze teams. It’s why we are near the top of the league at the moment. If we can carry on like that for the rest of the season we will be in a very good position.

  • Day Three

    Lancashire blasted their way to the top of the Specsavers County Championship table after demolishing Surrey by an innings and 96 runs at Emirates Old Trafford with more than a day to spare.

    Kyle Jarvis starred with both bat and ball, scoring important runs at the start of the day before ripping his way through the Surrey batsmen after lunch on his way to career-best match figures of 11-119.

    It was an utterly compelling performance from Steven Croft’s side who bossed all three days of this game and nicely sets up the Roses clash at Headingley starting on Sunday.

    Jarvis and Simon Kerrigan gave Lancashire a flying start to the day with an exhilarating tenth wicket partnership of 63 in 14.1 overs that not only added an extra batting point but took the Red Rose lead to an imposing 203 runs.

    The pair both hit a boundary in the first two overs of the morning to score the 8 runs required for a fourth batting point and, with their first objective achieved, set about adding to the overnight 151-run first innings lead.

    Kerrigan took consecutive fours off Tom Curran while Jarvis tucked in to Stuart Meaker on a couple of occasions with a cover drive and a thumping straight drive to move the score along quickly.

    Their 50 partnership arrived from 63 balls and meant Kerrigan had shared in three consecutive tenth wicket partnerships of 50+ runs against Surrey, following the two last season (62 with James Anderson at Emirates Old Trafford and 52 with Jarvis at the Oval).

    Four leg byes and a lofted straight drive off Gareth Batty by Kerrigan, who finished unbeaten on 32, ended the scoring as Jarvis finally went for 35 after glancing Meaker down the leg side to wicketkeeper  Ben Foakes, but it was an excellent start to the day that had seen 52 runs scored off 9.4 overs.

    Before the start of play Surrey opener Rory Burns had been ruled out of taking any further part in the game with mild concussion after being hit fielding at short leg yesterday.

    It meant Tom Curran came out to open for the first time in his career, indeed he had never batted higher than number 7 in the order before, and both he and Arun Harinath endured a difficult forty minutes as Tom Bailey and Jarvis regularly beat the bat without reward.

    It was Bailey who finally made the breakthrough in the 11th over when Harinath edged behind to Alex Davies for 16 with the score 27-1.

    Kumar Sangakkara, on a ‘pair,’ produced a glorious cover drive for 4 from the third delivery he received, but five minutes before lunch the Sri Lankan departed for 8 after being deceived by a slower delivery from Neil Wagner that he ballooned up to Jarvis at mid-off.

    It was a significant wicket that left Surrey in trouble at lunch on 58-2, still 145 runs away from making Lancashire bat again and the Red Rose side rammed home their advantage during the afternoon.

    Jarvis led the attack with his second five-wicket haul in the match as the visitors’ lost 7 wickets for 49 runs in 117 balls after the break.

    And it was Jarvis who got the boulder rolling with two wickets in one over, trapping Jason Roy lbw for 9 and two balls later inducing an edge from Ben Foakes that was snapped up by Davies.

    James Burke followed after top edging a pull off Jarvis that was well held by Liam Livingstone running back from slip and then Steven Davies, batting down the order after missing most of yesterday with illness, played loosely outside off stump against Bailey to give Davies another catch.

    Jarvis took his tenth wicket of the match by bowling Gareth Batty for 3 and then celebrated a career-best moment when trapping Mathew Pillans lbw for 4 to leave the Surrey innings in tatters at 84-8.

    All the while makeshift opener Curran had batted stoically at the other end, and he reached a well-deserved fifty when pulling Wagner for 4.

    Wagner extracted his revenge next ball by dismissing Curran for 53 to end the match at 3pm as Lancashire ran out convincing winners by an innings and 96 runs.

    It was also the first time since 1952 that Lancashire have won their first three home games at Emirates Old Trafford.

    Lancashire gained 23 points from the match and Surrey 3.

    “After losing to Durham last week and then the T20, to bounce back is fantastic,” said Ashley Giles. “It’s a very good Surrey team (we’ve beaten), although I don’t think they’re at the best by any means.

    “To have lost the toss again at home, on what looked like a pretty good batting surface and bowl them out four under 200 was a great effort.

    “All the way through the game we showed a lot of discipline and again no shortage of skill.

    “Alviro’s innings was world class, and Jarv has certainly hit his straps again.

    “At lunch today we thought we needed to get our two most attacking seamers back into action although I don’t think any of us expected to have the tumble of wickets we saw.

    “It was a great performance and Jarv on that sort of pitch is lethal because if it keeps a little bit low and keeps nipping about that’s just how he gets his wickets; bowled and lbw. It was almost a wicket that could have been built for him.

    “I’ve been really impressed the way Tom Bailey has bowled. If he can bowl that way all year he will certainly pick up his fair share of ‘five-fors’ as well. Having lost Jimmy Anderson (to England) the way Tom has come in to the side and settled over the last two weeks has been a real positive for us.

    “All we’ve spoken about this campaign is being extremely disciplined. If we control the scoring rate and consistently hit the top of off stump, we’re going to be in a good spot. Even if partnerships are put on against us, if they are not going anywhere you are always in the match. There was a period at Durham last week where we didn’t do that and it looked like we almost took our eye off the ball.

    “This match I thought we were superb. To win three out of three at home on what is a notoriously difficult ground to get a win is a fantastic start for us.

    “We are all excited now about going to Headingley.

    Steven Croft was naturally delighted to have won so convincingly.

    “It was an excellent win,” he said. “I thought we played some brilliant cricket with both bat and ball.

    “There were some standout performances from Alviro and Jarv, and it was a great team effort again.

    “The partnership this morning set the tone for the day. We got the 8 runs for the batting point-Kegs said it was never in doubt-and we carried that on with the ball.

    “Kyle Jarvis and Tom Bailey were awesome; Jarv picked up the wickets while Bails did a great holding job and was unlucky not to have come away with more wickets himself.

    “It was great partnership bowling backed up well by all the other bowlers as well.

    “Once we got on top we were ruthless and didn’t let them go.

    Croft isn’t about to get carried away despite the great start to the Championship campaign.

    “We are taking it on a game by game basis,” he said. “At home, we’ve done really well and it will be a good challenge going to Headingley.
