Hampshire v Northamptonshire, Southampton
Result: Hampshire won by an innings & 4 runs
Table toppers Hampshire consolidated their numero uno spot in Division 01 as they thumped the Northants by an innings & 4 runs to claim their 9th win of the season.
Having wrestled the advantage back on day 03 thanks to a five-wicket-haul from pacer Kyle Abbott (4-52), Hampshire enforced the follow-on on the Northants.
Northamptonshire once again got off to a great start thanks to a 129-ball 74 from Emilo Gay, but, just like in their 1st innings, once the floodgates opened, the bleeding never stopped.
This time, it was Pakistan seamer Mohammad Abbas and Keith Parker, who instigated the collapse as Northants went from being 1-130 to getting knocked over for 221.
While Abbas claimed four wickets and Barker, 3, the man of the moment was James Fuller, who thwarted Mother Nature as he dismissed No.11 Jack White amid falling rain to seal victory for his team.
