  1. Nighty night

    A late finish here then after rain delays both early today and in the earlier days of the matches, so there are still overs to catch up.

    Thanks for reading today, and please return for more punishment at 10:45 BST tomorrow.


    Sussex 231-9 v Durham 384

    Another superb fightback as Sussex reach stumps just three runs short of avoiding the follow-on with one wicket in hand.

    They were 110-7 before a fabulous stand of more than 100 between David Wiese (56) and Delray Rawlins (56 not out) took them to the cusp of the 234 they need to avoid the ignominy of potentially being asked to bat again.

    More importantly, it could well give them a much greater opportunity of snaring a draw.


    Warwickshire 148-3 & 230 v Surrey 194 & 325

    Nightwatchman Craig Miles sees off the final over from Morne Morkel despite two slips and a gully putting on the pressure.

    He manages to steer one bouncer over the slips for four, which takes Warwickshire halfway to their target of 290.

    Then, he defends a couple more short deliveries and then ducks a bouncer and ends the day 9 not out.

    The Pears get to stumps without any further loss, having seen Sam Hain depart three overs previously.

    They'll need another 142 runs to win tomorrow. Dom Sibley is unbeaten on 52.

    Surrey need seven wickets to pick up a first win of the Championship season.

  4. Post update

    Sussex 228-9 v Durham 384

    Last over of the day at Hove, Chris Rushworth to bowl for Durham.

    Sussex are six runs from avoiding the follow-on with one wicket in hand.

  5. Post update

    Warwickshire 143-3 & 230 v Surrey 194 & 325

    Nightwatchman Miles takes five deliveries from Morne Morkel and manages to get off the mark with a boundary through the covers.

    That came after Dom Sibley almost fell victim to a comic run-out as he fell over midway up the wicket, but he managed to recover his composure and find the safety of the crease.

    Gareth Batty is bowling with a silly point and short leg in for Dom Sibley.

    But the Bears man manages to grab a single from the second ball of the over.

  6. WICKET: Thomason c Lees b Carse 3

    Sussex 223-9 v Durham 384

    No way! Sussex come all of this way and surely, they aren't going to end up following on anyway are they?!

    Aaron Thomason gloves a rising delivery from Durham seamer Brydon Carse to Alex Lees in the slips and Sussex still need 11 runs to avoid the follow-on, but they only have one wicket in hand.

    Ollie Robinson is in to support Delray Rawlins (56) who might have to start swinging.

    This would be cruel.

  7. WICKET: Hain st Foakes b Batty 26

    Warwickshire 137-3 & 230 v Surrey 194 & 325

    A brilliant bit of work from Surrey wicketkeeper Ben Foakes.

    A great ball from Gareth Batty turns and beats Sam Hain and Foakes quickly stumps the Bears batsman to give the hosts a boost before the close.

    Sound the nightwatchman klaxon! Craig Miles makes his way out of the hutch to the middle.

    The visitors need 153 more.

    Three overs remain this evening and Morne Morkel is thrown the ball.

    Gloucestershire 313 & 41-2 v Glamorgan 287

    An early close at Bristol because of bad light with Gloucestershire now 67 runs ahead of Glamorgan on 41-2.

    Dan Douthwaite and Michael Hogan with the breakthroughs for the visitors.

    James Bracey (14) and Gareth Roderick (0) will resume for Glos in the morning as they try and extend their advantage.

  9. WICKET: Wiese lbw Trevaskis 56

    Sussex 219-8 v Durham 384

    David Wiese's super knock of 56 is brought to an end by the spin of Liam Trevaskis. An important innings to bring Sussex to the verge of avoiding the follow-on.

  10. for Sibley

    Warwickshire 132-2 & 230 v Surrey 194 & 325

    Former Surrey man Dom Sibley reaches his half-century for Warwickshire.

    He's batted well for it too, in tricky conditions, and survived a couple of scares through lbw appeals.

    The Surrey bowlers have had the upper hand for the last 45 minutes or so.

    Sibley's taken 106 balls for his 50, with five fours and he's put on 55 with Sam Hain for the third wicket.

  11. Post update

    Warwickshire 130-2 & 230 v Surrey 194 & 325

    The Bears total has been helped by a no-ball from Jordan Clark which went for four byes. Six no balls. Don't see that too often.

    Sam Hain and Dom Sibley have put on 53 runs for the third wicket.

    We have another six overs left this evening.

  12. for Rawlins

    Sussex 217-7 v Durham 384

    Delray Rawlins launches a huge six over the long-on ropes to join David Wiese in passing 50. This partnership - which is now worth 107 - could hardly have been more crucial for Sussex.

    Rawlins has taken 87 balls, hit six fours and two sixes to make his half-century.

    Durham still lead by 167 but Sussex are so close to avoiding the follow-on, which looked highly unlikely before this stand.

  13. WICKET: Hammond b Douthwaite 21

    Gloucestershire 313 & 35-2 v Glamorgan 287

    Dan Douthwaite enjoyed that one! He gets past the defence of Miles Hammond and cannons into the Gloucestershire opener's off stump.

    Hammond turns around to assess the damage but the pole in question is long on, near enough at first slip.

    Cracking start for Glamorgan.

  14. Post update

    Warwickshire 121-2 & 230 v Surrey 194 & 325

    Sam Hain has moved on to 24 not out with a boundary of Jordan Clark's last over.

    The Bears need 169 more to win and Dom Sibley is closing in on his 50 - he's unbeaten on 47.

    The battle between bat and ball continues. Warwickshire are chipping away for now.

  15. A little breather at Hove

    Sussex 207-7 v Durham 384

    The Sussex batsmen and Durham fielders are having a few bevvies (not really obviously, sports drinks/water is what we'd assume) which has to work in the visitors' favour.

    They'll be hoping to gather themselves for one final push tonight so they can break this partnership between David Wiese and Delray Rawlins that's almost worth 100.

  16. for Wiese

    Sussex 202-7 v Durham 384

    An important knock from Sussex all-rounder David Wiese as all were falling around him.

    The South African's 50 has been a positive one, taking 67 deliveries and containing five fours and a six.

  17. 200 up for Sussex

    Sussex 200-7 v Durham 384

    This has been a match of fightbacks and a stand of 90 between David Wiese and Delray Rawlins has given Sussex a realistic chance of avoiding the follow-on.

    They are just 35 runs shy now.

  18. Bears reach 100 in chase

    Warwickshire 100-2 & 230 v Surrey 194 & 325

    Dom Sibley brings up the 100 for the Bears as he goes after a ball from Rikki Clarke.

    That one flashes past the slips and runs away to the boundary by third man for four.

    The sun is out at The Oval but batting conditions remain somewhat tricky.

  19. Post update

    Warwickshire 93-2 & 230 v Surrey 194 & 325

    Warwickshire have moved on and now need fewer than 200 runs to win this game - 197 to be exact.

    Dom Sibley is now 34 not out, and Sam Hain is unbeaten on eight.

  20. WICKET: Dent c Lloyd b Hogan 2

    Gloucestershire 313 & 5-1 v Glamorgan 287

    Michael Hogan has Glamorgan's first breakthrough of the second innings as Gloucestershire captain Chris Dent edges to slip where he's caught by opposite number David Lloyd.

    Plenty of play left at Bristol this evening by the way after this morning's session was washed out.
