  1. Post update

    Seven games entered the final day and Notts, Northants and Somerset all came out with wins.

    Eight sides had to settle for draws.

    And that friends is where this live text draws to a close.

    Six more games start on Thursday and we'll be all across that online and on radio.

    Until then, goodbye.


    Leicestershire 496 v Surrey 324

    Surrey are all out with Rikki Clarke the last man to go, bowled by Ed Barnes for 16.

    That bring proceedings to an end at Leicester after a day and a half was lost to rain, making a positive result nigh-on impossible.

    Mark Stoneman will have enjoyed his 119 - a first century of the campaign - and Chris Wright took 5-60 for the hosts.


    Topley c Hill b Parkinson 10 (Leicestershire 496 v Surrey 320-9)

    Callum Parkinson's third wicket brings up the third bowling point for Leicestershire.

    Reece Topley's slice was safely taken by Lewis Hill.


    Lancashire (301-9 dec) draw with Glamorgan (344)

    James Anderson takes three off David Lloyd to bring up Lancashire's 300 and the captains decide that's enough. Match drawn.

    Lancashire stay top of Group Three seven points above Roses rivals Yorkshire.


    Leicestershire 496 v Surrey 307-8

    Five wickets for Chris Wright!

    He's accounted for Mark Stoneman who leaves after a fine knock of 119.

    In the next over, Jamie Overton smashes Callum Parkinson for six, before the bowler dismisses him with the next delivery.

    Surrey are now over 300 which gives them a third batting point.

  6. Post update

    Just an update on the groups - Lancashire will stay top of Group Three when this game is finished, with Roses rivals Yorkshire in second.

    Notts are top of Group One, and Gloucestershire Group Two leaders.


    Lamb b Lloyd 22 (Lancashire 286-9 v Glamorgan 344)

    Danny Lamb is bowled by medium-pacer David Lloyd and that's the maximum three bowling bonus points for Glamorgan.

    It's now all about whether or not Matt Parkinson and James Anderson can take Lancashire to 300 for their third batting bonus point.

    In tight groups, every point could be crucial.


    Mahmood c & b Neser 9 (Lancashire 278-8 v Glamorgan 344)

    Brilliant caught and bowled by Michael Neser!

    Saqib Mahmood punts the Australian paceman down the ground but he sticks up a left arm and grabs it with one hand.

    Can Lancashire's last couple of wickets get them to 300 and another batting bonus point?

  9. Surrey wickets tumble

    Leicestershire 496 v Surrey 275-6 (Surrey trail by 221 runs)

    Surrey have lost four wickets since we last checked-in on them, as they look to up the run rate at Leicester.

    Ollie Pope hit a couple of sixes on his way to 33 from 35 balls, before being bowled by Chris Wright.

    Ben Foakes was bowled in the next over by Callum Parkinson without troubling the scorer and Jamie Smith lasted two balls before going for a duck as well.

    Next to fall was Jordan Clark, bowled by Wright, after hitting 16 from 18 balls.

    Mark Stoneman has been watching the madness unfold from the other end and is on 111 not out.


    Yorkshire (321) draw with Kent (305)

    Duanne Olivier holes out off Jack Leaning to long-on and Yorkshire are all out for 321.

    And that'll do, the captains shake hands.

    A rain-interrupted draw at Headingley.

  11. Post update

    So, three games remain, all three are going to be drawn.

    But with Yorkshire, Lancashire and Surrey in their first innings still, they'll play on for bonus points.

  12. Post update

    Lancashire 266-7 v Glamorgan 344

    Lancashire have lost Dane Vilas and Luke Wood since tea, but this game is now all about the bonus points.

    15 overs remain at Old Trafford.

  13. Off and on at Headingley

    Yorkshire 314-9 v Kent 305

    They've been off at Headingley for a rain break since our last update.

    But they're back out again now.

    Ben Coad is with last man Duanne Olivier.


    Somerset (336 & 2-0) beat Hampshire (79 & 258) by 10 wickets

    Eddie Byrom completes the formalities at The Ageas Bowl, needing only the first ball from Ian Holland to wrap up a 10-wicket victory.

    Hampshire held up Somerset very well throughout the afternoon, owing a great deal to Keith Barker and Felix Organ's partnership, but just couldn't hold on long enough.

    That's a fourth win in five games for Somerset, who keep up the pressure on Group Two leaders Gloucestershire, who have a similarly good start to the season.

    The damage was done for Hampshire in the first innings when they only made 79 and Craig Overton and Josh Davey were the stars for Somerset, claiming seven wickets each.


    Warwickshire 343 & 70-3 v Worcestershire 364-8 dec

    No great surprise that this one is called early as a draw.

    A win for either side never looked particularly likely today and the spoils will be shared.

    That means that Worcestershire are now played five, drawn five, and they sit in third in Group One.

    Warwickshire are a single point ahead of them in second, behind leaders Notts.

  16. WICKET

    Abbas lbw Davey 0 (Hampshire 79 & 258 v Somerset 336)

    Mohammad Abbas is the last man out and Somerset will need two runs to win!

    Josh Davey has bowled excellently today and claims a 'five-fer' as he closes out the Hampshire innings.

    Team mate Craig Overton picked-up the other five wickets.

    So, it'll be a quick turnaround and a very quick Somerset innings coming up here to claim the win.

  17. for Barker

    Hampshire 79 & 258-9 v Somerset 336

    Shortly after Felix Organ departed, his long-time partner this afternoon Keith Barker brought up his half-century.

    A great knock in the circumstances from the number 10 batsman, who has helped to ensure that Somerset openers will need to pad-up again if they are going to win.

  18. WICKET

    Organ c Overton b Davey 7 (Hampshire 79 & 258-9 v Somerset 336)


    Somerset have brought Felix Organ's batting heroics to an end and it's the two bowlers who have done much of the damage who combine to take him out.

    Josh Davey claims his fourth wicket thanks to a smart catch in the slips by Craig Overton.

    Organ faced 108 balls for those seven runs - a brilliant rearguard action.

  19. Post update

    Big breakthrough at The Ageas Bowl...

  20. WICKET

    Thompson c Robinson b Gilchrist 18 (Yorkshire 304-9 v Kent 305)

    Some lusty blows from Ben Coad and Jordan Thompson have taken Yorkshire past 300 and to a third batting bonus point but Thompson now perishes.

    Nathan GIlchrist has him caught behind for his fourth wicket.

    That's also the maximum three bowling bonus for Kent.
