DERBY—West Indies middle order batsman Shiv Chanderpaul scored his fourth half-century of the season to help inspire Derbyshire to first innings lead over Hampshire on the third day of their County Championship game on Tuesday. Chanderpaul compiled 82 runs as Derbyshire, replying to Hampshire’s first innings 328, amassed 399 runs in a rain-affected third day at their County Ground. At stumps Hampshire was 20 without loss, still trailing Derbyshire by 51 runs. The veteran West Indies batsman, 35 overnight, faced 141 balls, hit 11 fours and played a crucial role in reviving his team’s innings after a slump of 273 for 2 to 312 for 7. The hosts had hoped to establish a commanding position as they resumed following a morning wash-out at 203 for 2.

Once play finally got underway, Chanderpaul’s overnight partner Stephen Moore added a further 22 before falling to a Sean Ervine. South Africa international Kyle Abbott picked up 4 for 84 as Hampshire frustrated Derbyshire's attempts to build a sizeable first innings advantage. Chanderpaul departed three overs after Moore, caught by Ervine off James Tomlinson for his 82. Hampshire responded by making a solid start to their second innings, Michael Carberry and Jimmy Adams making it to the close unbeaten.
