Lancashire bowled Hampshire out for 193 on the morning of day three at Aigburth, with Tom Bailey taking the superb figures of 7-37 from 24 overs. In a low-scoring affair, a chase of 196 for Lancs seems a testing one. Hampshire themselves were bowled out for 143 in the first innings, followed by Lancashire making 141 all out. Whether victory for either side takes them towards the County Championship title depends on Warwickshire getting maximum bowling points against Somerset. Lancs are relying on Warwickshire drawing or losing, and Hampshire just need the Bears to miss out on that bowling point if they are to be crowned champions.
