Match scorecard

Warwickshire went top of County Championship Group One as they disposed of Derbyshire midway through day three.

Resuming on their overnight 132-7, the visitors added only 23 more runs to be bowled out for 155 with South African Michael Cohen finishing with 5-43.

That set 309 to win, causing the Bears to fear they might have got it wrong on day two by not enforcing the follow-on.

But Oliver Hannon-Dalby took 4-24 as Derbyshire were bowled out cheaply again for 117 to lose by 191 runs.

After Hannon-Dalby got rid of both openers, Craig Miles nipped in to get Brooke Guest.

But after a 41-run post-lunch rally for the fourth wicket, Will Rhodes had Wayne Madsen caught and bowled for 29 before Hannon-Dalby removed Matt Critchley and Ben McDermott in successive overs.

Alex Hughes was beaten by a full, swinging delivery from Rhodes before the Bears turned to the left-arm spin of Danny Briggs for the first time in the match and he struck with his third ball.

Briggs had Cohen stumped by a brilliant piece of work from Michael Burgess, Anuj Dal edged Liam Norwell to third slip and Warwickshire’s 21-point win was sealed when Ben Aitchison skied Briggs to mid-off.
