Live Reporting

By Paul Grunill and Steve Mather

All times stated are UK

  1. Patterson repeat required

    Yorkshire 259 & 144-7 v Warwickshire 254

    Yorkshire captain Steven Patterson top-scored with 60 in the first innings and they need something similar from him now. At least they still have Jack leaning of their top order at the crease on 30 not out.

    Both he and Warwickshire skipper Jeetan Patel know this Clifton Park ground very well - and it's the New Zealand off-spinner who is posing the biggest threat at the moment.

  2. WICKET Barnard lbw Wells 28

    Sussex 255 v Worcestershire 226-6

    Sussex call up Luke Wells and the leg-spinner ends the 74-run partnership between Ben Cox and Ed Barnard in his first over. Brett D'Oliveira is the new batsman and gets off the mark quickly.

    What a masterstroke bringing on Wells - a wicket maiden in his first over.

    Why wasn't he on sooner!

  3. WICKET Willey st Ambrose b Patel 0

    Yorkshire 259 & 140-7 v Warwickshire 254

    Oh dear, David Willey, that is a big mistake.

    He is lured out of his crease by Jeetan Patel, fails to lay bat on ball and it's a straightforward stumping for Tim Ambrose - his fourth dismissal of the innings.

    Only three Yorkshire wickets left now and their lead is 145. Their unbeaten record is in danger.

  4. Bad light stops play

    Kent 309 & 277-3 v Notts 267

    If it's not the rain....

    An unscheduled interval at Tunbridge Wells as the players are taken off for bad light.

    Joe Denly is unbeaten on a Nelson 111 and Heino Kuhn on 22 (don't think there's a cricketing term for that).

    Kent are 319 runs ahead - will this delay bring forward a declaration?

  5. WICKET Dent b Klein 176

    Leicestershire 487 v Gloucestershire 449-6

    Finally, some relief for Leicestershire as Dieter Klein bowls Chris Dent, ending his 318-run partnership with Ryan Higgins - they were just three short of a new club sixth-wicket record.

    Dent batted for seven and a quarter hours, faced 311 balls and hit a six and 25 fours.

    Higgins remains on 162 not out as he is joined by Graeme van Buuren for the final 11 overs of play.

  6. WICKET Thompson b Patel 2

    Yorkshire 259 & 134-6 v Warwickshire 254

    Jeetan Patel floats up an off-break, Jordan Thompson seems to have it covered, but the ball turns off the pitch and clips off-stump.

    It's a classic dismissal by the Warwickshire captain and his side are now very much in with a chance of winning this game on the final day.

    Yorkshire's lead is 139 - they have four wickets left.

  7. WICKET Tattersall c Ambrose b Hannon-Dalby 17

    Yorkshire 259 & 128-5 v Warwickshire 254

    Oliver Hannon-Dalby

    Game now very much on at Clifton Park after Jonny Tattersall attempts a square cut and edges to keeper Tim Ambrose.

    It's Oliver Hannon-Dalby's third wicket of the innings and eighth of the match - and Yorkshire are only 133 ahead with most of their top order gone.

  8. Cox and Barnard cut deficit

    Sussex 255 v Worcs 204-5

    Ben Cox (28) and Ed Barnard (20) have done well since coming in almost simultaneously after Chris Jordan removed Riki Wessels and Callum Ferguson in the same over.

    Their partnership, now worth 52, has led Worcestershire over 200, earning a first batting point.

    They trail by 51 and there will be about 13 overs left today.

  9. for Ryan Higgins

    Leicestershire 487 v Gloucestershire 426-5

    Dieter Klein returns for another spell and Ryan Higgins swivels to pull away his opening delivery for four.

    Klein doesn't learn the lesson, the next one is banged in even shorter with the same end result, as Higgins advances to 153 not out from 196 balls faced.

    Those were pretty easy pickings for the Gloucestershire all-rounder, who must be seeing it like a blimp by this stage.

  10. Warwickshire seek late breakthough

    Yorkshire 259 & 127-4 v Warwickshire 254

    It really is old-fashioned, attritional Championship cricket at the moment at Clifton Park where Jack Leaning and Jonny Tattersall have added 30 to the Yorkshire total since coming together 16 overs ago.

    Oliver Hannon-Dalby and Jeetan Patel are now bowling in tandem for the visitors, who will still be in a good position if they can winkle another couple out before stumps.

  11. Gloucestershire pair grind on

    Leicestershire 487 v Gloucestershire 417-5

    Has a top-level cricket coach ever said "It's a flat one lads, so go out and fill your boots"?

    They are certainly words that apply to the way Chris Dent and Ryan Higgins have gone about their business at Grace Road.

    The most recent over from Will Davis was tidy enough, costing five runs, but the last 17 on day three are going to be tough for a weary home attack.

    Chris Dent now has 166 not out and Ryan Higgins is on 144. Gloucestershire need another 71 to lead on first innings.

  12. WICKET Bell-Drummond c Moores b Pattinson 79

    Kent 309 & 250-3 v Notts 267

    Pattinson is once again the man to make the breakthough for Notts - that's his eighth wicket of the match.

    The Australian finds the edge of Bell-Drummond's bat and the ball sails behind to wicket-keeper Tom Moores to take the catch.

    Bell-Drummond will be disappointed to lose his wicket after looking settled alongside Joe Denly in a partnership worth 152, which has moved Kent into a commanding position.

  13. Glos to the max

    Leicestershire 487 v Gloucestershire 402-5

    Gloucestershire achieve maximum batting points with 12 overs to spare as Chris Dent steers a ball from Neil Dexter away to the point boundary.

    The left-hander now has 160 not out, with partner Ryan Higgins on a career-best 135.

  14. for Joe Denly

    Kent 309 & 238-2 v Notts 267

    Joe Denly

    A fine century for Joe Denly and this should provide a real confidence boost, with the England man having been struggling for runs of late.

    Denly and Daniel Bell-Drummond have been in fine form since coming together today, with a partnership of 150 seeing Kent's lead move to 286.

    I suspect this performance will see Joe moving up that batting table I mentioned earlier!

  15. Flood forces venue switch for Worcestershire

    It won't be a surprise to anyone who has seen images of Worcestershire's New Road pitch under several feet of water this week, that the club has switched another of its home games to Kidderminster.

    The county will take on Australia 'A' at Chester Road on Tuesday 25 June, in a 50-over match.

    It will be the second fixture to be moved from Worcester to Kidderminster, with the current game against Sussex being played there.

    Worcestershire CCC CEO, Matt Rawnsley, said: "Flood water has receded moderately over the last few days and we are hopeful, once all the water has left the outfield, that we can start ground preparations to ensure a speedy return to Blackfinch New Road.

    "We would once again like to thank Kidderminster CC for their assistance."

  16. for Chris Dent

    Leicestershire 487 v Gloucestershire 389-5

    Chris Dent flicks Neil Dexter away for four to bring up a 250 partnership wirh Ryan Higgins and then goes to 150 not out with a single from the following delivery.

    It has taken him 284 deliveries and Higgins continues a busy over by flaying the next delivery through the covers for another boundary. He now has 132 - and the deficit is down below 100.

  17. Yorkshire must avoid more damage

    Yorkshire 259 & 112-4 v Warwickshire 254

    Yorkshire are batting with care at Clifton Park. They know they can't afford a rush of two or three more wickets with their lead only 117.

    Jonny Tattersall is 13 not out and Jack Leaning has 12. There are 24 overs to go before the close.

  18. Well played Glamorgan

    Middlesex drew with Glamorgan

    Even Nice and Tidy from the late Viv Stanshall's Sir Henry At Rawlinson End couldn't have been neater.

  19. Higgins makes hay for Glos

    Leicestershire 487 v Gloucestershire 353-5

    Batting point number four arrives for Gloucestershire courtesy of a no-ball and they still have plenty of overs to make it five.

    Ryan Higgins cracks two successive deliveries from Chris Wright through the covers for four later in the over before a luck inside edge from the final ball brings him another.

    He now has 120 not out, partner Chris Dent has 143 and they have added 234 so far.

  20. for Daniel Bell-Drummond

    Kent 309 & 209-2 v Notts 267

    The Kent man has his second half-century of the season and his partnership with Joe Denly (84) is now worth 115.

    The Kent lead is now over 250 with plenty of wickets still in hand so they really should be looking to accelerate now.
