  1. Stumps - day three

    Finally we've had an even day for both batsman and bowlers! It probably favoured the bowlers in fact.

    Leicestershire collapsed to 43 all out against Worcestershire, Warwickshire were skittled for 114 against Durham and Derbyshire wobbled their way to 9-3 in the final few overs this evening.

    Earlier new Division One leaders Lancashire earned an innings and 96 run win over Surrey.

    We'll be back from 10:55 BST on Wednesday with live text updates and ball-by-ball radio commentary from the final day.

    It promises to be an exciting one. Hope you can join us then!

  3. Stumps at The Ageas Bowl

    Hampshire 270 & 189-8 v Notts 189

    What an exciting final day we've got in prospect between Hampshire and Nottinghamshire.

    The hosts close with a lead of 270 with two wickets in hand.

    Who's your money on?

  4. Close of play

    Derbyshire 492 & 9-3 v Kent 412

    A thrilling final half hour comes to a close at Derby. The hosts lost three quick wickets with a lead of just 89 going into tomorrow.

    You'd still say the draw is favourite, but only if Derbyshire bat much better.

  5. Derbyshire three down

    Derbyshire 492 & 4-3 v Kent 412

    Yep, there's definitely life in this game yet!

    Matt Coles traps nightwatchman Tom Taylor lbw without scoring and Derbyshire are suddenly wobbling.

    Things then get worse as Hamish Rutherford nicks Coles behind.

    Skipper Billy Godleman has also retired hurt after he was hit by a throw. It's all gone a bit mad!

  7. Close of play at Edgbaston

    Warwickshire 313 & 114 v Durham 190 & 154-4

    Durham have had an absolutely super final hour to give themselves a good chance of victory tomorrow.

    Chasing 238 to win, they've reached stumps on 154-4 with Keaton Jennings unbeaten on 88.

    Skipper Paul Collingwood is also there on 26.

    Durham need 84 more to win.

  8. Close of play

    Glamorgan 260 & 295-3 v Essex 313

    Day three comes to a close in Cardiff - and what a day it's been for Glamorgan and batsman Will Bragg.

    Bragg finishes on 119 with Aneurin Donald unbeaten on 44.

    Glamorgan already lead by 242 and will have plenty to play with tomorrow when it's their time to bowl.

    A good one from BBC Essex's very own Glenn Speller here!

  10. WICKET Hughes (b Tredwell 1)

    Derbyshire 492 & 1-1 v Kent 412

    Oh, maybe the game at Derby does have some life left in it! Derbyshire opener Chesney Hughes is bowled by James Tredwell for one.

    We've already seen Leicestershire bowled out for 43 this afternoon - surely only a similar sort of collapse could provide a positive result in this one?

    Derbyshire lead by 81.

  11. Stumps at Lord's

    Somerset 376 v Middlesex 407-9

    It's also stumps at Lord's where a draw looks likely. Middlesex opener Sam Robson was earlier out for 99 and Paul Stirling made 85 - but with a lead of just 31, they'll need an inspired bowling spell from someone to force a victory.

  12. Close of play at Bristol

    Northants 176 & 120-3 v Gloucestershire 418

    Gloucestershire end day three very much in the ascendancy. Northants' Rob Newton is there on 58, but his side still trails by 122.

  13. Two wickets for Patel

    Hampshire 270 & 165-8 v Notts 189

    Hmm, things have suddenly got very interesting at The Ageas Bowl.

    Nottinghamshire spinner Samit Patel dismisses Will Smith for 61 and then traps Tino Best lbw for nought three balls later.

    Hampshire's lead stands at 246.

  14. Five-wicket haul for Thakor

    Derbyshire 492 v Kent 412-9

    It's going to be a match to remember for Sean Dickson, but the same can be said of Derbyshire all-rounder Shiv Thakor who bowls Mitch Claydon for his fifth wicket.

    Thakor has figures of 5-63 to go with his first-innings' knock of 134 - his first ever five-wicket haul.

    With Joe Denly not taking part today after he became a new father, the Kent innings ends on 412, with Sean Dickson carrying his bat for 207.

  16. WICKET Stirling (lbw b Leach 85)

    Somerset 376 v Middlesex 395-8

    Paul Stirling goes 15 runs short of his century as Jack Leach pins him lbw.

    The Middlesex batsman faced 132 balls with 11 fours and one six.

    With Stirling's wicket, the chances of a sixth draw in six games for both sides are yet again odds-on. 

  17. Sean Dickson makes a double century

    Derbyshire 492 v Kent 405-8

    We have yet another double hundred in this remarkable 2016 County Championship season.

    Kent opener Sean Dickson is the latest to get to the milestone off 350 balls with 23 fours and two sixes.

    It's the 24-year-old's maiden double ton.

  19. Fifty for Will Smith

    Hampshire 270 & 148-6 v Notts 189

    Will Smith

    This is a really gritty knock from Hampshire's stand-in captain Will Smith, but an absolutely crucial one for his side.

    Smith moves to his half-century off 141 balls - but more importantly, Hampshire's lead is up to 229.

  20. Northants showing fight

    Northants 176 & 93-2 v Gloucestershire 418

    Northants are making a bit of a better fist of their second innings at Bristol.

    Rob Newton (40 not out) and Rob Keogh (30 not out) have shared 65 for the third wicket - but they still trail Gloucestershire by 149.
