Match scorecard

Lancashire pace bowler Richard Gleeson excelled against former side Northants on the first day of their Division Two match at Old Trafford.

Gleeson took the first four visiting wickets to fall and ended with 5-63.

Northants needed lower-order runs from Luke Procter (48) and Luke Wood (66) to lift them to 230 all out, while South Africa Test batsman Temba Bavuma scored 39 on his debut for the county.

Lancashire closed on 29-1 in reply, with Haseeb Hameed out for seven.

Bavuma was trapped lbw by veteran seamer Graham Onions (4-45), which left Northants struggling on 119-6 before Procter and Wood – who rejoined the club on loan from Nottinghamshire on Monday – came together for a seventh-wicket stand of 70.

Lancashire, who are without injured England seamer James Anderson in this match, won their opening Division Two game away at Middlesex, while Northants are still awaiting their first victory after starting their Championship campaign with two draws.
