  1. Good night all

    Essex win

    My word! It's been a long old day of action.

    We've seen big wins, tight wins and some other matches still in the balance.

    All part of the drama of County Championship cricket.

    If you missed any of it during the day, then head to the Counties section of the BBC Sport website to read all about it.

    We'll be back from 10:45 BST on Monday for the final day of action in this round.

    Should be a corker....

  3. Post update

    Incredibly, that is that for the day's action.

    What an absolute treat and there's still another day left tomorrow.

    Stay there, we'll wrap up the close of play scores shortly...

  4. Post update

    "Cricket, bloody hell!"

    That's more or less what Sir Alex Ferguson said I think....

  5. Ireland trail Pakistan by 116 following-on

    Pakistan 310-9 dec v Ireland 130 & 64-0 (26 overs)

    It's been a chastening day for the Ireland at The Village, where Pakistan bundled the home side out for 130 and enforced the follow-on. But William Porterfield (23 not out) and Ed Joyce (39 not out) have shown plenty of resolve to take the Irish through to stumps unscathed in the second innings.

    Pakistan's Mohammad Abbas was Irish destroyer-in-chief with 4-44, while the leg-spinner Shadab Khan weighed in with 3-31.


    Leicestershire 191 & 237 v Glamorgan 178 & 247

    Unbelievable! Leicestershire have won it!

    Ben Raine to Marchant de Lange, it's a rank full toss and he connects with it down the ground.

    But, there's Callum Parkinson waiting at long-on and he takes the catch above his head on the boundary.

    Leicestershire have beaten Glamorgan by three runs. Marchant de Lange falls for 90.

    Incredible scenes at Grace Road.

  7. Post update

    Leicestershire 191 & 237 v Glamorgan 178 & 247-9 (target 251)

    Ben Raine to Marchant de Lange....

    Four down the ground, four more to win for Glamorgan!

  8. Not out!

    Leicestershire 191 & 237 v Glamorgan 178 & 243-9 (target 251)

    Ben Raine's turn to try and be Leicestershire's hero....

    Michael Hogan on strike, takes a quick single!

    Direct hit at the non-striker's end as he dives for his ground.


    Eight to win for Glamorgan....

    Mark Cosgrove
  9. More runs for Glamorgan!

    Leicestershire 191 & 237 v Glamorgan 178 & 242-9 (target 251)

    Gavin Griffifths' turn now to try and pick up the last Glamorgan wicket.

    Marchant de Lange thrashes him for four and then him and Michael Hogan take a single each.

    Another huge six into the legside from De Lange and then a four behind point (86 not out) leaves the Foxes in all sorts of trouble.

    Down to nine to win now!

  10. Close of play

    Surrey 414 v Yorkshire 229 & 142-5 (57 overs)

    Virdi bowls the last over...

    Jonny Bairstow takes a single and Jack Leaning works Virdi to backward square for a couple more.

    Leaning is well forward to Virdi now. Last ball... Leaning plays it back to the bowler safely -and that's it.

    Yorkshire get through to stumps with five wickets in hand - but Surrey are very much in the box seat.

    Yorkshire still trail by 43 and Surrey have a whole day left to bowl the visitors out tomorrow.

    Amar Virdi
  11. Final burst for Surrey tonight

    Surrey 414 v Yorkshire 229 & 139-5 (56 overs)

    Jonny Bairstow on the defensive now.

    Jade Dernbach fires in a bouncer but that's very short and no danger for the batsman there.

    Dernbach drops short again and Bairstow runs him down to third man for one. He'll have the strike for the last over of the day.

    Jonny Bairstow
  12. De Lange still swinging

    Leicestershire 191 & 237 v Glamorgan 178 & 226-9 (target 251)

    Two huge sixes from Marchant de Lange (70 not out) off Callum Parkinson and Glamorgan may well nick this one from Leicestershire's grasp!

  13. Hogan & De Lange Glamorgan's last hope

    Leicestershire 191 & 237 v Glamorgan 178 & 219-9 (target 251)

    Not all over by any stretch in this one.

    Leicestershire need one more wicket to win. Glamorgan need 32 more runs.

    Marchant de Lange (64 not out) playing all sorts of big strokes with Michael Hogan at the other end.

  14. Can Bairstow and Leaning make it to stumps?

    Surrey 414 v Yorkshire 229 & 138-5 (55 overs)

    Jack leaning drives through the covers off the back foot and that's good fielding by Mark Stoneman to keep it down to two runs.

    Two overs left. This is getting tense. Yorkshire trail by 47.

  15. Bairstow and Leaning keep Surrey at bay

    Surrey 414 v Yorkshire 229 & 136-5 (54 overs)

    Jonny Bairstow drives Jade Dernbach down the ground but can't get it past Rory Burns. He drives to mid on but Sam Curran keeps him on strike. That last ball is down the leg side and a diving stop from Ben Foakes.

    Yorkshire trail by 49.

  16. Still going at Grace Road

    Leicestershire 191 & 237 v Glamorgan 178 & 195-9 (target 251)

    Supposedly, they're still going to be bowling another six overs plus a potential extra half hour.

    But, Leicestershire might wrap this one up tonight after Callum Parkinson claims the ninth Glamorgan wicket to leave them still 56 shy of victory.

    Timm van der Gugten has just fallen for 22 after a 58-run stand for that wicket with Marchant de Lange (49 not out).

  17. Missed stumping at The Oval

    Surrey 414 v Yorkshire 229 & 136-5 (53 overs)

    Jonny Bairstow sweeps again and gets one off the first ball of Amar Virdi's over.

    Three close catchers in for Jack Leaning again. He strides down the crease and misses an absolute ripper, but Ben Foakes can't take it cleanly.

  18. Yorkshire trail by 50

    Surrey 414 v Yorkshire 229 & 135-5 (52 overs)

    Here comes Jade Dernbach. Jonny Bairstow drives through the covers for one. That's 22 off 35 balls, so pedestrian compared to his last innings but no less important.

    Jack Leaning defends.

  19. Amar Virdi attacks

    Surrey 414 v Yorkshire 229 & 134-5 (51 overs)

    Jonny Bairstow unleashes the sweep again and gets a single down to long leg.

    Jack Leaning has a slip, a forward short leg and a short point for company now.

    Leaning defends... In the air but it lands safely. Did he touch that?

    He punches the next one through the covers for four. He blocks the last ball.

    Six overs left. Yorkshire are still 51 runs in the red.

  20. Can Leaning and Bairstow hang on?

    Surrey 414 v Yorkshire 1229 & 129-5 (50 overs)

    Ooh! Did Jack leaning play and miss or did he just move the bat inside the line? Let's give him the benefit of the doubt.

    The next ball deflects off Leaning's pad for a bye. Jonny Bairstow picks up a single. Leaning drives to backward point and 12th man Will Jacks saves another boundary with a one-handed dive.
