Azhar shines again in Trophy win


Muhammad Azharullah turned in another outstanding performance as Northamptonshire beat Somerset by five wickets in Monday's Second XI Trophy match at Taunton Vale.

The seamer followed up his 11 wickets against Leicestershire at Finedon last week with 4-19 as the County dismissed Somerset for just 72.

Lee Daggett (3-13) provided best support - and although Northamptonshire's batsmen also struggled in reply, Durham University's Luke Blackaby hit an unbeaten 34 to steer the side home at 75-5.

Weather permitting, the two sides will begin a three-day Championship match on Tuesday.
