  1. Goodbye for now

    OK, the forecast is a bit grim tomorrow - but it just might be wrong!

    We could be in for a thriller at Headingley, where the hosts lead Hampshire by 199 with six wickets left.

    Just enough possibilities to keep it interesting among our three promotion candidates in the second division games too.

    I'll be back with my shades and sun cream hoping for the best. Bye for now!

  2. Close of play scores

    Division One:

    Worcestershire 94 & 140-4 v Essex 474-7 dec - Worcs trail Essex by 240 runs

    Yorkshire 184 & 172-4 v Hampshire 157 - Yorks lead Hants by 199 runs

    Surrey 485 v Somerset 122-9 - Somerset trail Surrey by 363 runs

    Division Two:

    Leicestershire 321 v Durham 61 & 66 - Leics win by an innings and 194 runs

    Glamorgan 186 & 32-3 v Kent 436 - Glamorgan trail Kent by 218 runs

    Gloucestershire 125 v Northamptonshire 173 - Northants lead Glos by 48 runs

    Middlesex 423 v Derbyshire 226-6 - Derbyshire trail by 201 runs

    Warwickshire 440 v Sussex 224-5 - Sussex trail by 216 runs

  3. Stumps at Lord's

    Middx 423 v Derbys 222-6

    A good day for the hosts overall but Matthew Critchley has kept Middlesex at bay with a battling 87 not out after the visitors slipped to 62-4 and then 187-6.

    He returns to the crease with Anuj Dal, who blocked out the last over of the day from Max Holden to end unbeaten on 19.

  4. Close of play at Headingley

    Yorks 184 & 166-4 v Hants 157 (lead by 193)

    Adam Lyth gets a single off the first ball and Tattersall hands the strike back after the fourth.

    Two slips a short leg and a short mid wicket in place now. Edged!

    The ball runs through the slips and down to third man for a streaky four.

    He pads the last ball away and that's the close. So frustrating for Hampshire.

    Plenty of Yorkshire grit from Adam Lyth to battle through to 50 and hats off to Tim Bresnan for a career-best 5-28 today to keep the visitors to 157.

  5. Final push for Hampshire

    Yorks 184 & 166-4 v Hants 157 (lead by 193)

    Two overs left. Another wicket tonight would give Hampshire a lift - especially if it's Adam Lyth.

    Tattersall on strike at the moment and he gets a beauty from Abbott which nips way off the seam.

    Tattersall survives and now it's down to Lyth to see off Liam Dawson.

  6. Hampshire facing tough target

    Yorks 184 & 165-4 v Hants 157 (lead by 192)

    Edwards is bowling very full here and the first two balls disappear for byes.

    17 runs in extras now.

    This is a handy lead already. How many would Hampshire be comfortable with?

    Leg stump half volley from Edwards and that's four more to Tattersall.

  7. Lyth and Tattersall battling through to stumps

    Yorks 184 & 157-4 v Hants 157

    Tattersall has been very much in block mode - but that's a leg stump half volley from Kyle Abbott and he smacks that through square leg for four.

    He gets a single off the 5th and Lyth sees out the over.

    A bit gloomy here but we'll carry on. Edwards to bowl.

    Three overs left.

  8. Stumps at Canterbury

    Glamorgan 186 & 33-4 v Kent 436

    It seems like only a matter of time until Kent secure promotion.

    The hosts take one more wicket to end the day, Kieran Bull caught low at first slip by Sean Dickson after Matt Henry found the edge.

    The standout performance of the day came courtesy of Zak Crawley, who made a brilliant 168 with the bat.

  9. Edwards back on for Hampshire

    Yorks 184 & 151-4 v Hants 157 (lead by 178)

    Adam Lyth greets the fast bowler with a dive - and that's a great diving stop by Liam Dawson to cut off the run.

    He picks up a single off the next ball and Tattersall gets another to backward point to get the White Rose to 150 valuable runs. One more for Lyth to get to 52.

    Two short mid-wickets are in for Edwards now and Tattersall defends.

    Four overs left till stumps.

  10. 50 for Adam Lyth

    Yorks 184 & 148-4 v Hants 157 (lead by 174)

    Maiden from Liam Dawson. Lyth to face Kyle Abbott now.

    He pushes him to wide mid off and sprints through for a single.

    That's his third first class 50 of the campaign, none more determined than this one.

    114 balls and six fours.

  11. WICKET Carlson (b Denly 9)

    Glamorgan 186 & 32-3 v Kent 436

    Glamorgan can't make it through to stumps with only two wickets down as it turns out.

    Leg-spinner Joe Denly bowls a quicker and shorter one which Kiran Carlson pulls onto his stumps.

    Not a great shot choice at this point in the game.

  12. Close of play at Hove

    Sussex 224-5 v Warwks 440

    David Wiese picks up another four off Keith Barker and then gets a single to backward square leg to move on to 66.

    Two balls left for Ben Brown to survive.

    He blocks the first and hammers the last one through the covers for four!

    Great recovery from Sussex after Keith Barker reduced the hosts to 14-3.

    They're still a fair way back but this is a true surface, the ball is 47 overs old and they're not down and out by any means.

  13. Post update

    Glamorgan 186 & 27-2 v Kent 436

    Glamorgan are safely working their way towards stumps at Canterbury.

    Jack Murphy and Kiran Carlson have put on 16 together in a little under five overs.

  14. 50 for Ben Brown

    Sussex 210-5 v Warwks 440

    The Sussex resurgence continues as Ben Brown pulls a leg side ball from Keith Barker behind square for his ninth four, bringing him 50 in just 64 balls.

  15. Lyth battles on

    Yorks 184 & 145-4 v Hants 157 (lead by 171)

    Adam Lyth gets a rare short ball from Liam Dawson and smacks it through mid wicket for four.

    He's on 47 now. Dawson bowls a quicker and flatter ball and Lyth defends.

    He gets an edge safely to backward point to keep the strike.

  16. Lyth battling hard

    Yorks 184 & 140-4 v Hants 157 (lead by 167)

    One more single for Lyth off Holland to take him on to a very precious 43.

    Hampshire have to prize him out tonight for any real chance of a target under 200.

    Tattersall is forward in defense to see out the over.

  17. Close of play at Chelmsford

    Worcestershire 94 & 140-4 v Essex 474-4 dec

    Worcestershire's hopes of avoiding relegation disappeared in the morning session as they allowed Ravi Bopara (133) and Adam Wheater (66) to build a huge first-innings lead for Essex.

    It looked like it could be over quickly when Jamie Porter struck twice after Essex declared, but Joe Clarke's unbeaten 74 has helped the Pears drag this game into a third day.

  18. Wiese takes Sussex past 200

    Sussex 200-5 v Warwks 440

    David Wiese gets a single off the fourth ball of Chris Wright's 10th over - and that takes Sussex to 200.

    The last 100 came in just 17.5 overs.

    Warwickshire are getting a bit of a headache here.

  19. WICKET Cook (c Dickson b Stevens 14)

    Glamorgan 186 & 15-2 v Kent 436

    Kent take another big stride towards promotion as Stephen Cook becomes the second Glamorgan wicket to fall, caught at first slip.

    Darren Stevens, who scored his 15,000th first-class run earlier, has his second wicket of the innings.

  20. 50 for David Wiese

    Sussex 182-5 v Warwks 440

    Lovely shot from David Wiese who crunches Olly Stone through the covers for four to bring up a breezy half century in just 62 balls.

    They can't reach 440... Can they?
