  1. Thanks and good bye

    Thank you for your attention and interaction on an exciting Bank Holiday Monday.

    Enjoy a shortened week at work and before you know it the County Championship will be back again.

    Good bye.

  2. Join us again

    Jack Brooks

    The next round of County Championship fixtures comes on Friday, when Hampshire play Warwickshire, Middlesex take on Somerset and Yorkshire face Lancashire in a Roses Derby in a tasty list of Division One fixtures.

    In Division Two, Durham play Northants at home, leaders Nottinghamshire face winless Derbyshire and Sussex look to bounce back against Worcestershire, who are looking for a fifth-straight win.

    That, I'm sure you'll agree, is worth tuning in for.

  3. The final 'Biscuit XI'

    Important news. After many suggestions and some controversy regarding Jaffa Cakes, here's the final version of the Biscuit XI.

    It looks a strong side, capable of taking on any other silly pun-based adversary.

    Alastair Cookie (c), Simon Kit Katich, Parthiv-ring Patel, Biscotti Borthwick, Arthur Shrewsbury Fruit, Garry-Baldi Sobers, Phil Custard Cream (wk), Sir Rich Tea Hadlee, Muttiah Maltedmilktharan, Robin HobNobs, Steven Wafer Finn.

    12th man: Wasim Jaffa Cake.

    Thanks for your contributions.

  4. Division Two table

    Division Two table

    In Division Two, Kent's win over Sussex saw them keep pace with leaders Nottinghamshire, who completed a comprehensive win over Gloucestershire yesterday.

    Glamorgan were big winners, jumping up to fifth place with a dramatic three-wicket win over Durham, secured with three balls to spare after Paul Collingwood's declaration.

    Durham remain bottom, 48 points behind ninth-placed Derbyshire, and without a win following their demotion and points deduction for financial irregularities.

  5. Division One table

    Division One table

    Here's how Division One looks following the top-of-the-table clash between Essex and Surrey.

    Both sides claimed 11 points from the draw at Chelmsford, keeping them in first and second place respectively, separated by a single point. Both remain unbeaten, but have won just three games between them.

  6. What a day in the County Championship

    Chelmsford

    On a day where poor light and showers threatened we got three good games.

    Glamorgan brought a wonderful day of County Championship action to a close with their narrow win over Durham.

    Earlier on today Kumar Sangakkara fell short of a sixth successive century as Surrey drew with Essex at Chelmsford.

    At Tunbridge Wells Kent wrapped up a fourth win of the season by beating Sussex.

  7. A first win of the season for Glamorgan

    Glamorgan beat Durham by three wickets

    What a way to claim your first County Championship win of the season! They needed 37 runs from the final four overs, but got home with three balls to spare.

    Nicholas Selman is the hero for his unbeaten 116, but there were important contributions from Colin Ingram (42), Chris Cooke (31) and Aneurin Donald (28).

    Glamorgan move up to fifth place, but Durham remain rooted to the bottom of Division Two on -24 points, following their relegation and points deduction for financial irregularities.

  8. BreakingGlamorgan beat Durham by three wickets

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 266-7 (50.3 overs)

    Take a bow Nicholas Selman. The Glamorgan opener clips a two off Paul Coughlin to win it and finishes unbeaten on 116 from 129 balls. What an innings.

    Paul Collingwood's declaration back-fires, but fair play to the Durham skipper for making a game of it in the Swansea gloom.

  9. Two runs to win for Glamorgan

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 264-7 (50.2 overs)

    Two runs needed for Nicholas Selman from the final four balls. What does Paul Collingwood do with his field?

  10. Six off the first two balls from Selman

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 264-7 (50.2 overs)

    Wow. Nicholas Selman smashes the first two balls for six. Blimey.

  11. Glamorgan need 14 from the final over

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 252-7 (50 overs)

    Marchant de Lange and Nicholas Selman at the crease. Can they get the 14 runs needed from Paul Coughlin's over?

  12. Century for Selman

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 249-7 (49.3 overs)

    Nicholas Selman celebrates his hundred after a four and a two from George Harding.

    Can he close the game out?

  13. Glamorgan need 24 runs from 12 balls to win

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 242-7 (49 overs)

    Glamorgan need 24 runs from the final two overs.

    Big fast bowler Marchant de Lange is the new man alongside Nicholas Selman (94 not out).

    I've given up trying to second-guess this game, let's just see what happens.

  14. WICKET Bragg (c Poynter b Coughlin) 1

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 241-7 (48.2 overs)

    Another twist. Will Bragg nicks behind to Stuart Poynter off Paul Coughlin.

    Still 25 runs needed. Do Glamorgan shut up shop, or continue the chase?

  15. A first professional six for Selman

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 240-6 (48 overs)

    Nicholas Selman is approaching his hundred on 93 not out, but that will be at the back of him mind.

    He's in full-on one-day cricket mode as he smashes George Harding for a big six - his first in professional cricket.

    Glamorgan need 26 runs from the final three overs.

  16. Glamorgan need 37 runs from 4 overs

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 229-6 (47 overs)

    That's the equation. Can they hold their nerve and smash some boundaries?

    Nicholas Selman is 84 not out. It may be down to him.

  17. WICKET Cooke (c Clark b Coughlin) 31

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 228-6 (46.4 overs)

    There's a blow for Glamorgan.

    Chris Cooke has smashed 31 from 20 balls, but he departs after picking out Graham Clark on the boundary from Paul Coughlin's bowling.

  18. Glamorgan need 44 runs from 5 overs

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 222-5 (46 overs)

    Glamorgan win or a draw? The pressure is well on Durham skipper Paul Collingwood. Was his declaration too generous?

  19. Another six from Cooke

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 221-5 (45.5 overs)

    Chris Cooke is playing a wonderful hand here. He's launched his third six of a short innings over the rope, this time off George Harding.

    He's 29 not out after just 16 balls and he's lost another ball.

  20. Glamorgan need 54 runs from 6 overs

    Durham 342 & 276-7d v Glamorgan 353 & 212-5 (45 overs)

    It's going to be a tight finish at Swansea.

    Nicholas Selman has 75 and Chris Cooke is on 22 after smashing a gigantic six off Ryan Pringle.
