Warwickshire opener Alex Davies scored a superb century against his former club Lancashire to set up a fascinating final day of their LV= Insurance County Championship tussle at Edgbaston. Davies defied his old team mates to make 121 (211 balls, 12 fours, one six), his first ton for the Bears, and tilt a terrific, fluctuating game narrowly his side’s way. His skilful work lifted Warwickshire to 327 for nine declared, setting a victory target of 329 (they suffered a five-run penalty for Henry Brookes running down the pitch while batting). The visitors reached five without loss in four overs before the close.
