  3. Post update

    Right then - let's round up how we stand before we close up for the day...

  4. Close of play at Trent Bridge

    Derbyshire 9-0 v Nottinghamshire 324

    Derbyshire see off a couple of overs each from Jake Ball and Peter Trego to get through to stumps without losing a wicket.

    Billy Godleman with all nine of the runs they've scored so far with Luis Reece seeing out the last over at the other end yet to score.

  5. Close of play at Chester-le-Street

    Durham 103 v Yorkshire 84-4

    It's Yorkshire's day at Chester-le-Street, where 14 wickets have fallen on day one.

    Ben Coad took 4-23 as Durham were all out for 103 and while the White Rose haven't been perfect with the bat they've made enough inroads to put them firmly ahead in the game.

    Tom Kohler-Cadmore's 41 off 41 balls has helped them to 84-4 at stumps.

  6. Ones to watch: Derbyshire

    Luis Reece

    Dave Fletcher

    BBC Radio Derby

    Luis Reece

    Luis Reece is coming off the back of his best season in first-class cricket and will be eager for more.

    Not only did he average more than 30 opening the batting in the Championship in 2019 – with a couple of centuries thrown in - he also collected 52 wickets at under 20 with his left-arm seam.

    He performed the same role in white ball cricket and appeared to relish the extra workload, suggesting that a frantic, condensed 2020 schedule - with Derbyshire playing all their games on the road - is not something that will faze him.

  7. Derbyshire innings under way

    Nottinghamshire 324 v Derbyshire 0-0

    Luis Reece and Billy Godleman have been sent out by Derbyshire to negotiate the final four overs of the day.

    Can Notts strike at Trent Bridge to make a decent day even better?

  8. Close of play at Hove

    Sussex 176 v Hampshire 77-4

    We have a wicket to end the day at Hove - Mason Crane caught behind for a duck off the bowling of Ollie Robinson - and Hampshire are 77-4 at stumps.

    Sussex's first-innings total of 176 is suddenly not looking so bad, with Phil Salt (68) and George Garton (54 not out) providing the standout knocks.

    Ajeet Dale impressed on debut for Hampshire with figures of 3-20.

  9. Notts dismissed for 324

    Nottinghamshire 324 v Derbyshire

    And that's the end of Nottinghamshire's eventful first innings.

    Jake Ball the last man to go as he's bowled by Matthew McKiernan for 34 off just 37 balls.

    That 324 coming in just 77.2 overs, so a pretty decent rate.

    Derbyshire will have to come out and face four overs before stumps in reply.

  10. Yorkshire nightwatchman falls

    Durham 103 v Yorkshire 68-4

    Yorkshire sent out a nightwatchman in Steven Patterson to try to see them through to close at Chester-le-Street but he becomes Paul Coughlin's second victim of the over.

    Patterson goes lbw for a duck and Yorkshire are 68-4 against Durham.

  11. Notts lose a ninth as they look to go big

    Nottinghamshire 321-9 v Derbyshire

    Nottinghamshire tail-enders have been enjoying launching some big hits in this closing hour.

    But Joey Evison finally departs for a brisk 38 as he's caught at mid-wicket by Billy Godleman off Matthew McKiernan's bowling.

  12. Durham bag another

    Durham 103 v Yorkshire 68-3

    And another wicket late in the day for Durham.

    Will Fraine the man to fall this time for 14, leg before to Paul Coughlin.

    Bowling bonus point in the bag for the hosts.

  13. Close of play at Taunton

    Somerset 296 v Glamorgan 8-0

    And that's stumps at Taunton.

    Glamorgan's openers safely negotiate the remaining seven overs of the first day to close on 8-0 in reply to the hosts' earlier 296.

    Be interesting to see how this one develops from tomorrow.

  14. Close of play at Edgbaston

    Warwickshire 130-4 v Northamptonshire 142

    Warwickshire win the day at Edgbaston, with Olly Stone taking four wickets to help dismiss Northants for 142 while Rob Yates is not out on 63 with the bat.

    The hosts are just 12 runs adrift of Northants' first innings total with six wickets in hand.

    Yates' partner at the crease Michael Burgess is unbeaten on 30, which is already the second-highest score in the match after a day of 14 wickets.

  15. Kohler-Cadmore's bright knock ends

    Durham 103 v Yorkshire 66-2

    Durham pick up another much-needed Yorkshire wicket late in the day.

    The dangerous Tom Kohler-Cadmore falls for 41, bowled by a beauty of a ball from Ben Raine that clips the top of off stump.

    Glorious stuff.

  16. Ball frustrates Derbyshire attack

    Nottinghamshire 299-8 v Derbyshire

    After a middle-order collapse Derbyshire had Nottinghamshire 192-7 at Trent Bridge, but Samit Patel has inspired a second wind for the hosts.

    He smacked 63 off 70 balls and now Jake Ball (30*) and Joey Evison (19*) have taken Notts to 299-8 - putting on 46 runs for the ninth wicket.

  17. Close of play at Worcester

    Lancashire 265-6 v Leicestershire

    Leicestershire got off to a promising start - restricting their opponents to 97-4 - but a middle-order resurgence from Lancashire captain Dane Vilas (90) and Steven Croft (63) saw them recover.

    The Red Rose close on 265-6, with Dieter Klein the main man for Leicestershire with three wickets.

  18. Close of play at Chelmsford

    Essex v Kent 344-6

    Kuhn

    A day that belongs to Kent and especially Heino Kuhn.

    The South Africa international finishes unbeaten on 140 off 246 balls.

    A fine innings indeed as he rescued his side from a perilous-looking 23-3 early on in the day.

    Hard work for county champions Essex.

  19. Close of play in Bristol

    Gloucestershire 246-8 v Worcestershire

    We've reached stumps in Bristol, where Worcestershire recovered somewhat after some earlier domination with the bat from Gloucestershire.

    Chris Dent (92) and Graeme van Buuren (60) added 127 for the second wicket but Brett D'Oliveira got both of their wickets and Charlie Morris took three wickets himself to restrict Glos to 246-8.

  20. 150 for Nick Gubbins

    Surrey v Middlesex 264-4

    Gubbo

    Great way to finish off the day for Nick Gubbins as he pushes Scott Borthwick into the offside for a single that brings up his 150 with a ball to spare.

    It's come off 257 balls with 17 fours and a six and it's been absolutely chanceless from the left-hander.

    Middlesex close the first day on 264-4.
