LONDON, May 13 (AFP) - Former England paceman Graham
Dilley cost Worcestershire a famous comeback win in their thrilling
English County Championship clash with Lancashire at Worcester
on Monday.

With Lancashire facing almost certain defeat with nine wickets
down, 14 overs left and still 55 short of their victory target of 199,
he spilled a simple catch at mid-on as Warren Hegg miscued a hook
off Ian Botham.

Then, to Dilley's horror, the players had to come off for rain just
three balls later and he had to wait in agony in the pavilion before
the match was abandoned as a draw.

Ironically, Dilley, in harness with four-wicket partner Phil Newport,
had helped put Worcestershire in sight of a remarkable win,
showing some of his old fire with a three-wicket burst.

Australian Tom Moody had initially fashioned the great fightback,
hammering 135, his fourth century of the summer and his first
championship ton for his new county, as Worcester clawed their
way from an overnight 122 for five to a respectable 272.

In contrast, Dilley's former England team-mate, Graham Gooch,
could at last afford a smile following a wretched Sunday as Essex
brought some semblance of normality to the top of the championship

The England captain, whose car was badly damaged in an accident
en route to a Sunday League defeat at Nottingham, saw his run of
bad fortune continue when he was quickly dismissed at Northampton
in the morning.

But he was then relieved to see Derek Pringle and Pakistan star
Salim Malik guide his side to their expected eight-wicket triumph
over Northamptonshire, which lifts them to second place after the
second batch of four-day matches.

With Gooch's men the only winners among the four championship
favourites, the table took on a topsy-turvy early season look as last
year's wooden spoonists, Sussex, claimed top place, Kent, one off
the bottom in 1990, were third and champions Middlesex 16th.

Kent moved into their elevated position after wrapping up victory
by an innings and three runs over Surrey at the Oval.

Chris Penn snapped up two wickets to finish with four for 50 and
eight wickets in all as the home side capitulated for 222. Allan
Donald, the man Warwickshire preferred to Moody, proved his own
worth as a match-winner at Headingley, completing a 10-wicket
match haul and guiding his side to victory by 30 runs in a
close-fought finish against Yorkshire.

Needing 82 to win with just three wickets standing, the Tykes were
scuppered by a double strike from the South African paceman, who
finished with five for 54 and match figures of 10 for 96.

Glamorgan recorded their first win over Somerset for six years, a
crushing triumph by 180 runs at Taunton, as pacemen Steve Watkin
and Daren Foster tore through the home side.

After Matthew Maynard had powered on to an unbeaten 133,
enabling Glamorgan to leave Somerset a daunting victory target of
368, Watkin took five wickets and Foster three to go with his first
innings haul of six.

Only Peter Roebuck, with a defiant 64, offered any resistance as
Somerset suffered a mid-innings trauma, losing seven wickets for
just 30 runs.

Nottinghamshire also launched their campaign with a win, Tim
Robinson and Paul Johnson scoring unbeaten half-centuries to
ensure a comfortable seven-wicket success over neighbours
Leicestershire at Trent Bridge.

Bill Athey (65 not out) and Tony Wright (61 not out) did likewise
to steer Gloucestershire to an eight-wicket victory over Hampshire
at Bristol with an unbeaten stand of 143.

Earlier, in-form paceman David Lawrence had set up the victory,
taking career-best match figures of 11 for 129 as the visitors were
bowled out for 218.
