Cricket: Round-Up.

LANCASHIRE beat Essex by eight wickets at Chelmsford to become the first side to win promotion from Division Two of the Frizzell County Championship this season.

Set 155 runs for victory after dismissing their opponents for 227, Lancashire were never in any trouble after their openers put on 106 to put them within touching distance of regaining their top-flight place.

Indian Test spinner Murali Kartik made a memorable debut to finish with match figures of 10-168 to become the first of the county's players to take 10 wickets on his first championship appearance.

That left Lancashire closing in on promotion and a century opening stand made the task a formality as Iain Sutcliffe - who completed 1,000 first-class runs for the season - and Mark Chilton played confidently on both sides of the wicket.

Meanwhile, Glamorgan crashed to defeat against Middlesex in their totesport League Division One match at Lord's.

The visitors seemed to be cruising to a win thanks to an undefeated 89 from Michael Powell before losing five wickets in the last 16 balls.

Andrew Davies was bowled for a duck and David Harrison was run out for three as Glamorgan were all out for 234 to give the Crusaders a win with eight balls to spare
