Jack White and Ben Sanderson were the pick of Northamptonshire’s bowlers on a truncated but even day against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl.

Having been put in by Will Young on a green-tinged wicket and seen his opening partner Ian Holland edge to second slip to the first ball he faced, Organ faced a great deal of pressure.

But the 23-year-old was compact with the ball nipping around, with Ben Sanderson particularly finding good subtle movement to find the outside edge of Weatherley’s bat to again find Emilio Gay at second slip.

There were regular plays and misses from either end either side of the early lunch as all of Northamptonshire’s bowlers impressed. South African Lizaad Williams looked threatening throughout the morning, consistently beating the bat as he had the ball zipping through off a good length.

Their early momentum was halted though with rain and bad light eventually lobbing 34 overs off the day.

Luke Procter entered the attack and immediately found movement in off the seam to bowl Gubbins for 23 and break a budding partnership, while Vince was caught behind for 19 driving at Tom Taylor.

Organ eventually departed when he failed to move his feet to White and feathered and inside edge to Ricardo Vasconcelos.

But Liam Dawson and Aneurin Donald chanced their arm somewhat to put on 62 unbeaten runs before the close. Both batsman surviving strong LBW appeals and aerial balls just evading fielders.

Cloud quickly closed in around the Ageas Bowl to bring an early end to proceedings, the umpires leading the players off with just 62 overs completed in the day.
