County Championship: England opener Ben Duckett hits unbeaten ton for Nottinghamshire on day one

In the Division Two clash between Worcestershire and Gloucestershire at New Road, Tom Price had a remarkable day, rescuing the visitors from a desperate collapse with his maiden first-class century before then taking a hat-trick later in the afternoo

Middlesex might have been ruing their decision to field first following a 117-run opening stand in just 27.5 overs between Duckett and Haseeb Hameed, who nicked off for 55 as Bamber (2-62) had some overdue reward.

Nottinghamshire then slipped to 152-4 but Duckett was a reassuring presence in the middle, guiding his side to 252-5 when bad light at Lord's brought play to an early end.
