  1. Stumps

    That's all I have time for today.

    Join me again from 10:50 BST on Wednesday as three games come to a conclusion and three games enter their third day.

    Oh, and day one of Sussex against Northamptonshire starts at 12:00 BST just to compound the confusing schedule!

    Until then, goodbye!

  3. Close of play at Cardiff

    Glamorgan 351 & 22-0 v Kent 282

    Tuesday's final game comes to a close with Glamorgan in a healthy position against Kent.

    Jacques Rudolph and Mark Wallace negotiated the final 11 overs of the day safely and will resume in the morning for the Welsh county.

  4. Close of play at Chester-le-Street

    Durham 172 & 98-3 v Yorkshire 323

    It's the close at Durham and the hosts have plenty of work to do if they are to save this game.

    Keaton Jennings has batted nicely for 46, but Durham still trail by 53.

  5. Close of play at Chelmsford

    Essex 268 & 22-1 v Leicestershire 243

    Ravi Bopara

    Essex nightwatchman Matt Quinn survives for 22 balls to see his side through to stumps at 22-1.

    Very much Essex's day after taking Leicestershire's last eight first-innings wickets for 94.

  6. Stumps at Old Trafford

    Lancashire 308 v Warwickshire 202-6

    Time is also called at Lancashire where Warwickshire have enjoyed a fine evening session thanks to Tim Ambrose (48 not out) and Keith Barker's (57 not out) unbroken stand of 108.

    They trail the Red Rose county by 106.

  7. Close of play at Derby

    Derbyshire 319-3 v Worcestershire

    A magnificent day for Derbyshire comes to an end.

    Captain Billy Godleman goes to stumps unbeaten on a career-best 157.

    Earlier Wayne Madsen made 109 as the pair put on 251 for the third wicket.

    Worcestershire will be glad to get off the field.

  8. Close of play at The Oval

    Surrey 323 & 244-5 v Notts 182

    Tom Curran falls in the final over of the day at The Oval for 21 - caught in the deep off Samit Patel.

    Steve Davies has raced to 45 off 29 balls and with Surrey's lead at 385, you'd expect an overnight declaration.

  9. WICKET Burnham (lbw b Patterson 8)

    Durham 172 & 83-3 v Yorkshire 323

    Yorkshire are now well on top at Chester-le-Street. Jack Burnham is trapped lbw by Steven Patterson for eight.

    Durham still trail by 68.

  10. WICKET Browne (b McKay 8)

    Essex 268 & 18-1 v Leicestershire 243

    Clint McKay strikes early for Leicestershire as he bowls Essex opener Nick Browne for eight.

    The Australian quick now has five wickets in the match.

  11. Fifty for Keith Barker

    Lancashire 308 v Warwickshire 187-6

    There aren't many better number eights in the county game than Keith Barker.

    He proves his worth yet again today with his second fifty of the season.

    It's aided a fine Warwickshire recovery from 94-6.

  12. Derbyshire 300 up

    Derbyshire 300-3 v Worcestershire

    Derbyshire continue to pummel Worcestershire's bowling attack as Neil Broom hits Matt Henry through the covers twice in the over.

    The 300 is up and so is their third batting bonus point. Meanwhile Billy Godleman continues on his merry way - the captain is on 145, his best ever first-class score.

  13. Five-wicket haul

    Glamorgan 351 v Kent 282

    A career-best haul for Glamorgan paceman Timm van der Gugten who finishes with 5-79 as Kent are bowled out for 282.

  14. WICKET Harinath (c Patel b Hutton 83)

    Surrey 323 & 194-4 v Notts 182

    With Surrey looking to set up a declaration, Arun Harinath is out seeking quick runs.

    The opener gives Brett Hutton his third wicket as Samit Patel clings onto the catch.

    Seven overs remain at The Oval this evening - Surrey's lead is 335. I think we can expect an overnight declaration.


    Essex 268 v Leicestershire 243

    Ravi Bopara

    Essex all-rounder Ravi Bopara brings Leicestershire's first innings to an end as Rob Taylor drives him to Dan Lawrence at backward point. Bopara finishes with 3-43.

    Somehow, after Leicestershire were 149-2, Essex have earned a first-innings lead of 25.

  16. Ambrose & Barker rebuild

    Lancashire 308 v Warwickshire 150-6

    Warwickshire have one of the most resilient lower orders in county cricket and it's once again showing its worth today.

    Tim Ambrose and Keith Barker's seventh-wicket partnership currently stands at 56 as Warwickshire reach 150.

  17. Rouse departs

    Glamorgan 351 v Kent 271-8

  18. WICKET Borthwick (b Lyth 4)

    Durham 172 & 65-2 v Yorkshire 323

    What an inspired bowling change by Yorkshire skipper Andrew Gale! Adam Lyth comes into the attack and bowls Scott Borthwick with his fifth ball.

    It's only Lyth's 23rd first-class wicket, but a huge one for the White Rose county!

    Durham still trail by 86.

  19. Leicestershire nine down

    Essex 268 v Leicestershire 227-9

    Elsewhere in Division Two, Leicestershire's first innings is in real trouble...

  20. Fifty for Adam Rouse

    Glamorgan 351 v Kent 262-7

    Talk about guts from Kent wicketkeeper Adam Rouse! The 23-year-old is currently nursing a fractured finger...
