  1. Carse wins duel with Azad again

    Durham 544-9 dec v Leics 236 & 122-2

    Martin Emmerson

    BBC Newcastle

    For the second time in this match Hassan Azad has provided stubborn resistance against the Durham attack - but for the second time he's fallen to a short one from Brydon Carse.

    Last night he was on 53 when he was caught at leg slip by Peter Handscomb. Today he fell for 57 as he tried to rock away from another risingball from the South African but gloved to the keeper.

    Having made Leicestershire follow-on four overs after lunch, Durham failed to make a breakthrough in the spell up to tea. But when Ben Raine had Paul Horton caught down the leg side for 35, with 93 on the board, the hosts saw an opportunity for progress

    Azad, who has nearly 1,000 runs this season, fell to Carse 10 overs later. It's the first time Durham have forced a side to follow-on since a victory here against Derbyshire in August 2017.

  2. Carey finds his touch

    Middlesex 75 & 378 v Sussex 309 & 68-3

    Alex Carey decides it's time for someone to be a little more assertive and clips James Harris away for four before finding the boundary again with a superb off-drive to take him into double figures.

    Harris tries again and this time is put away through mid-wicket for four more.

    A good over for Sussex, who need another 77.

  3. Essex reach three figures

    Kent 226 & 40 v Essex 114 & 100-6

    Adam Wheater dabs the ball down and runs through for a single off Mitch Claydon as Essex's total reaches three figures - 53 more required.

  4. WICKET Nash lbw Maharaj 30

    Yorkshire 232 & 338 v Notts 184 & 104-4

    Chris Nash didn't want to leave the crease, but of course he has no choice, after the umpire's signal confirms his fate.

    The stand-in skipper was trapped lbw by the spin of Maharaj, before looking to the heavens and fixing the umpire with a hard stare, before trudging disconsolately away.

    A big wicket for Yorkshire to get at this stage of the game and now it's up to Ben Duckett and Liam Patterson-White.

  5. Lights on at Edgbaston

    Warwicks 419 & 117-7 v Somerset 308

    Michael Perkins

    BBC Sport

    If Somerset fans had allowed their attention to turn to Canterbury they will have switched back very sharply to Edgbaston.

    The floodlights are on and with the slight deterioration in light, Jamie Overton has been able to create an opportunity for his team.

    Warwickshire are on course to be bowled out in a couple of sessions which would leave a very interesting chase indeed.

  6. Streaky four for Harmer

    Kent 226 & 40 v Essex 114 & 97-6

    So close for Kent as Simon Harmer collects four from a thick edge to third man. If had failed to get bat on that, an lbw decision may have been a formality.

    The boundary takes Harmer to nine not out and Adam Wheater is on three. Essex need 56 more.

  7. Dynamic duo piling on the runs

    Hampshire 367 v Surrey 427-4

    Ollie Pope

    Ollie Pope is now on 135 not out and Aaron Finch has an unbeaten 86, as Surrey continue to pile on the runs.

    Their partnership is worth 160 and they lead by 60.

    Hampshire last took a wicket shortly after 3pm and have probably forgotten what taking a wicket feels like by now.

  8. WICKET Brookes c Davies b J Overton 4

    Warwicks 419 & 113-7 v Somerset 308

    Jamie Overton

    Oh Henry, what were you thinking.

    No need to play at a wide delivery, but Henry Brookes flashes at it and edges through to keeper Steven Davies.

    Three wickets now for Jamie Overton, who will feel a whole lot better now after proving expensive in the first innings.

    The Warwickshire lead is now 224.

  9. WICKET Finch c Eskinazi b Murtagh 0

    Middlesex 75 & 378 v Sussex 309 & 44-3

    He didn't see that coming.

    Harry Finch is surprised by a bit of extra bounce from Tim Murtagh from a good length and Steive Eskinazi pulls in a head-high catch at first slip.

    Middlesex certainly look like a team who believe they can pull this off.

    Alex Carey is the new Sussex batsman with 101 still required.

  10. WICKET Ten Doeschate c Robinson b Claydon 17

    Kent 226 & 40 v Essex 114 & 84-6

    More twists and turns than the most suspenseful of suspense novels - we have now had 25 wickets today at the Spitfire Ground.

    Essex skipper Ryan ten Doeschate is undone by a good delivery by Mitch Claydon which leaves him off the pitch, with keeper Ollie Robinson completing the dismissal.

    Simon Harmer is the new batsman and is under with a boundary to square leg. Essex need another 69 - but they only have four wickets left.

  11. Duckett takes fight to Yorkshire

    Yorkshire 232 & 338 v Notts 184 & 81-3

    Keshav Maharaj, who was hit for couple of sixes by Tom Moores yesterday, watches the ball sail high over the boundary rope a couple more times.

    This time it's Ben Duckett who hits a couple of maximums in the 25th over.

    Duckett now has 19 from 23 balls and Chris Nash is on 23 from 58 as Notts look to reduce the gap.

    There are still 18 overs left today.

  12. WICKET Yates lbw J Overton 53

    Warwicks 419 & 107-6 v Somerset 308

    Rob Yates is unable to make Somerset pay for the dropped catch in Jamie Overton's previous over as he plays across the line to the fast bowler and is leg-before.

    Another good innings, though, from the highly promising 19-year-old left-hander.

    Two balls later and Michael Burgess follows for a duck as he guides Overton into the hands of Roelof van der Merwe at gully.

    The lead is 218 - it is now officially game on.

  13. for Rob Yates

    Warwicks 419 & 106-4 v Somerset 308

    Oh brother!

    Rob Yates follows his first-innings century with an 80-ball fifty but he takes the two runs he needs as Craig Overton is unable to hang onto a one-handed chance at second slip.

    His brother Jamie is the unlucky bowler, and Craig hurls his cap to the ground in disgust at himself.

    Warwickshire lead by 217.

  14. WICKET Westley b Claydon 25

    Kent 226 & 40 v Essex 114 & 82-5

    A disastrous mistake by Tom Westley, who shoulders arms and is bowled by a delivery from Mitch Claydon which cuts back off the seam, having put the previous one away through point for four.

    Only five wickets left for Essex, who need another 71 as Adam Wheater comes to the crease.

    Mitch Claydon
  15. WICKET Haines b Finn 11

    Middlesex 75 & 378 v Sussex 309 & 39-2

    You would assume this game will end this evening - but Sussex are certainly having to graft as they look to score 145 to win.

    The second wicket goes down as Steven Finn, bowling from round the wicket, knocks back Tom Haines' off stump with a real jaffa.

    Harry Finch is next to the middle, joining Luke Wells, who has 16 not out at the moment. There are 27 overs scheduled before the close.

  16. Huge six from Finch as Surrey extend lead

    Hampshire 367 v Surrey 385-4

    View more on twitter

    That's huge from Aaron Finch.

    He sends the ball straight back down the ground and into the stand for his first maximum of the innings.

    Surrey are now 18 ahead and Hampshire are struggling to find even the merest hint of a wicket.

  17. Bears push lead beyond 200

    Warwicks 419 & 94-4 v Somerset 308

    Rob Yates turns a ball from Jack Brooks for four and Warwickshire's lead goes past 200.

    Somerset call up Jamie Overton to replace Tom Abell and he will be hoping for better lucjk after proving expensive in the first innings.

  18. Tendo's timing spot-on

    Kent 226 & 40 v Essex 114 & 70-4

    Matt Milnes tests out Essex skipper Ryan ten Doeschate with a bouncer.

    It's well-directed but the batsman manages to make a clean enough contact to put it away for four before giving up the strike with a single.

    The Essex target is 153.

  19. WICKET Clarke c Tattersall b Maharaj 4

    Yorkshire 232 & 338 v Notts 184 & 54-3

    Maharaj gets in on the act as he finds some movement from the pitch and the edge of Clarke's bat, to send the ball spinning into the wicket-keepers gloves.

    Clarke's dismissal brings Ben Duckett to the fold as Notts chase an increasingly unlikely victory.
