  1. Bye for the night

    Well let's be honest, it was a bit after the Lord Mayor's Show today wasn't it?

    We tried our absolute best but just absent mindedly found ourselves writing Eoin Morgan, Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler [INSERT WORLD CUP WINNER HERE] without even thinking.

    But you know what? Not sorry.

    Still can't believe England won the World Cup the way they did. Mad.

  2. Close at Chester-le-Street

    Durham 212 & 290-8 dec, Worcestershire 151 & 31-3

    Durham are closing in on victory over Worcestershire after setting them a huge 352 to win and then taking three quick wickets before the close of day three.

    Chris Rushworth got rid of Daryl Mitchell, Riki Wessels and Joshua Dell to hold incredible figures of 3-1 at one point. The Durham seamer will lead the charge as they look to polish this match off in the morning.

  3. Close of play at Chesterfield

    Northants 342 & 122, Derbyshire 146 & 155-5

    On a disintegrating pitch, Northants made 122 to set Derbyshire 319 to win. The home side went cascading into their own second innings with Billy Godleman in particular treating the match like a T20.

    In the end, it's stumps with Northants needing five wickets and Derbyshire 164 runs when play resumes in the morning.

    TWENTY-FOUR wickets fell today. Madness.

  4. Procter comes close to hat-trick

    Derbyshire 146 & 155-5 v Northants 342 & 122

    Luke Procter may have just swung the game in Northants' favour at Derbyshire, taking two wickets in two balls and coming not far away from a hat-trick.

    He firstly has Leus du Plooy caught brilliantly at slip by Brett Hutton, before dislodging the stumps of Derbyshire nightwatchman Hamidullah Qadri.

    His hat-trick ball yorker was defended by Harvey Hosein but Northants now need just five wickets, with the hosts 164 runs to win.

  5. Close at Cardiff

    Middlesex 384 & 342, Glamorgan 171 & 171-6

    Middlesex really ran Glamorgan in to the dirt today and ultimately set them an unfathomable 556 to win. By stumps, six wickets had fallen so any slim, slim chance of the home side surviving to secure a draw seems to have disappeared.

  6. Close at Cheltenham

    Leicestershire 252 v Gloucestershire

    Leicestershire are bowled out just before stumps on day one against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham after winning the toss and deciding to bat this morning.

    Only captain Paul Horton (47) and Neil Dexter (56) contributed meaningful runs, but we won't know until Glos have a go whether 252 is a good score or not.

    Until tomorrow then.

  7. Close at Southampton

    Hampshire 409-9 dec & 119-2 v Kent 555

    A pretty low-key finish in truth, with Hampshire's Ian Holland (37*) and Rilee Rossouw (37*) seeing out the closing overs with no trouble and little attempt to add to their total.

    They're just 27 runs behind Kent now, but have plenty of work to do if they are to make the game safe.

    Heino Kuhn's 95 for the visitors and Fidel Edwards' 5-118 for Hampshire earlier were the highlights on day three.

  8. Post update

    Hampshire 409-9 dec & 116-2 v Kent 555

    Three overs left in the day at the Ageas Bowl, where it looks like Hampshire will survive without any further damage.

    The partnership between Ian Holland and Rilee Rossouw is worth 50 runs, with the latter scoring 34 off 34 balls.

    Joe Denly has come into the attack for Kent, who still have a 30-run lead.

  9. Close of play at Canterbury

    Australian XI 397, England Lions 232-6

    Warwickshire's Sam Hain is out for 39 in the final over of the day at Canterbury - so that means a slightly early close.

    That leaves England Lions trailing the Australian XI by 165 runs with four first-innings wickets remaining as they go into day three of what is a effectively a Test trial.

    Sam Curran is on 32, on top of his 6-95 earlier, including a stunning burst of five wickets in 18 balls.

    Skipper Lewis Gregory finished with 3-65, but the Surrey man will be the happiest with his day.

    Sam Curran's day at Canterbury
  10. Close at Chelmsford

    Essex 245 & 316-9 dec v Warwickshire 161 & 67-1

    Warwickshire close on day three 67-1, trailing Essex by 334 runs.

    The Bears negotiated those 25 overs pretty well, only losing Will Rhodes as Robert Yates (4*) stuck about alongside Liam Banks (36*).

    Essex will fancy their chances of finishing the game off tomorrow but Warwickshire pulled off a similar escape at Hampshire last week and will keep believing.

  11. Close at Headingley

    Yorkshire 520, Somerset 196 & 159-4

    Somerset get to the close on 159-4 still 165 runs adrift. Tom Banton's 58 not out carrying the brunt of the Championship leaders' hopes as they aim to save this match and battle through day four.

  12. Holland staying calm for Hants

    Hampshire 409-9 dec & 91-2 v Kent 555

    Ian Holland is batting just how Hampshire will be wanting him to - scoring his 30 runs off 104 balls at the Ageas Bowl.

    The hosts are 87-2 - trying to see out the rest of the third day after losing Ajinkya Rahane in the last hour.

    Rilee Rossouw is getting almost a run a ball - they trail Kent by 55 runs now.

  13. for Tom Banton

    Yorkshire 520, Somerset 196 & 150-4

    Tom Banton reaches his fourth Championship half-century of the season as Somerset continue to battle at Headingley. Almost the close on day three now and there's still a slim chance of the leaders saving this match.

  14. Durham declare to put pressure on Pears

    Durham 212 & 290-8 dec v Worcestershire 151

    Martin Emmerson

    BBC Newcastle

    Durham have declared their second innings on 290-8, meaning Worcestershire will have to chase 352 to beat them.

    There are 17 overs left tonight and then we have day four tomorrow.

    For the second time in the match Ben Raine (28) and Ned Eckersley (33) put a decent partnership together. They were 205-6 when they came together and they put on 50 for the seventh wicket.

    Prior to that Jack Burnham made 76 and put on 63 for the sixth wicket with Eckersley.

    Worcestershire don't have the use of the heavy roller so it would appear they are up against it here in Chester-le-Street, where they haven't won.

    Their two victories away to Durham were at Stockton in 93 and Darlington in 95.

  15. WICKET: Bartlett c Lyth b Maharaj 5

    Yorkshire 520, Somerset 196 & 148-4

    Yorkshire need six more to close this match out as George Bartlett nicks Kesh Maharaj to slip. Nine wickets in the match for the South African spinner.

  16. WICKET Rhodes lbw Beard 25

    Essex 245 & 316-9 dec v Warwickshire 161 & 56-1

    Essex have their first wicket and once again Aaron Beard is the man!

    He's building quite the knack for coming into the attack and making a breakthrough - he has Will Rhodes playing across his crease and celebrates without even needing to turn around to see the umpire's verdict.

    Rhodes goes for 25 and Warwickshire are 56-1 - needing another 345 to win - as Robert Yates comes in.

  17. WICKET Rahane b Stewart 42

    Hampshire 409-9 dec & 66-2 v Kent 555

    Ajinkya Rahane had looked so good for Hampshire but is bowled out of nowhere by a Grant Stewart beauty!

    The ball sneaks between bat and pad, with the India batsman stuck on his crease, and departs for a quick-paced 42. That's probably his last act in a Hampshire shirt.

    The hosts are 66-2 - still trailing Kent's first-innings total by 80 runs - with Rilee Rossouw in alongside Ian Holland.

  18. So far so good for Bears

    Essex 245 & 316-9 dec v Warwickshire 161 & 50-0

    Warwickshire make it to 50 without any losses - Will Rhodes (24*) and Liam Banks (25*) are playing some nice strokes.

    One consolation for Essex is they've tightened things up in recent overs. Not exactly building pressure but halting the scoring and making things a bit more difficult.

    The Bears need another 351 runs to win.

  19. Get Involved using #bbccricket

    How can country make most of England World Cup win?

    England celebrate

    Alison Wall: Get cricket back in schools, get the kids to the clubs, give clubs the resources to coach and develop, they need parks and play areas for random games with mates. Get families to T20 blast games. Free-to-air TV coverage of some games.

    James Lawler: Every member of that squad should visit as many schools, cricket clubs, youth clubs and talk about what they have achieved to inspire the next generation but above all get cricket played in every secondary school with the ECB to fund cricket gear for poorest schools.

    Arthur Sleep: I think free-to-air TV is a massive point. The ECB needs to get cricket out to the masses. A handful of T20 games on Friday evening TV would be huge I think. And a highlights show on a Sunday morning right after MOTD, while people are in a sport mood.

    Phillip Hutchinson: How about the last session of each day of a test on free-to-air? Catch people coming in from work and kids in from school.

  20. Rossington take a bow

    Northants 342 & 122, Derbyshire 146 & 62-1

    I've used the Ouch! graphic because Adam Rossington's hands must be stinging after that. Superb glovework from the Northants keeper to get rid of Billy Godleman.

    Real bravery - or madness - to stand up to one of his quicks like that.

    Fair play.

    By the way, Derbyshire have continued to follow their opener's lead by passing 60 on seven overs.
