There have been some notable individual performances at the start of the latest round of County Championship matches, centuries by Matt Renshaw, Rory Burns and Sean Dickson, career-best bowling figures for Zak Chappell and Josh Poysden and a five-for by Duanne Olivier.
In the battle of first versus second in Division One, Renshaw's 106 has helped put Somerset in a decent position against Nottinghamshire, but the leaders are by no means out of it if they can pick up the three wickets they need fairly quickly on day two.
Defending champions Essex enjoyed a good day at Old Trafford, reducing Lancashire to 297-9, despite 79 by Jordan Clark, but they will need to bat well to establish a first-innings lead.
