Sam Curran enjoys dream debut

Kent 97-3 v Surrey

BBC London 94.9's March Church

at The Oval:

"Well quite a first over for 17-year-old Sam Curran..handed his Championship debut with his fourth delivery he bowled Joe Denly after Surrey won the toss and put Kent into bat.

"Elder brother Tom then reduced Kent to 27-2 when he dismissed Adam Ball.

"Daniel Bell-Drummond and Sam Northeast played positively adding 61 until Bell -Drummond was lbw to Zafar Ansari for 39.

"Northeast is looking in good touch and a pulsating session sees Kent going to tea at 97-3."

Play has just been called off for the day between Middlesex and Somerset without a ball being bowled.

The rain did stop for a time during the afternoon in north-west London, but when the persistent drizzle returned the umpires decided no play would be possible.

Essex all-rounder Jesse Ryder took a career-best 6-47 as Glamorgan lost six wickets in the afternoon session at Chelmsford to be bowled out for 162.

The New Zealander received good support from David Masters (3-53) as only Colin Ingram provided resistance with the bat as he made 43 off 56 balls.

The hosts have just resumed their second innings after tea, with a lead of 117.

Warwickshire rebuild at rainy Durham

Durham 314, Warwickshire 105-4

BBC Newcastle's Martin Emmerson

at Chester-le-Street:

"It's been a frustrating day in Chester-le-Street with four rain delays meaning only 26 overs have been possible in that time.

"At tea Warwickshire are 105-4 with Tim Ambrose on 31 and Sam Hain on 34."

Rushworth takes three quick wickets

Durham 314, Warwickshire 20-3

BBC Newcastle's Martin Emmerson

at Chester-le-Street:

"Rain has restricted play to just 4.2 overs today but in that time Chris Rushworth has taken three wickets and Warwickshire have found themselves struggling on 20-3.

"None of the players out managed a run today. Varun Chopra went second ball of the morning, lbw while offering no shot to a Rushworth ball. He didn't add to his overnight score of six.

"In his next over Rushworth removed Jonathan Webb and Laurie Evans in consecutive deliveries, but Sam Hain saw off the hat-trick ball."

Ryder strikes between Chelmsford showers

Essex 279, Glamorgan 53-4

BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb

at Chelmsford:

"New Zealand all-rounder Jesse Ryder continued his star performance with the ball for Essex as he bowled Glamorgan skipper Jacques Rudolph for 24 to claim a fourth wicket.

"But following a late start at 12:15 BST, just 14 balls were delivered in the first session as the rain returned on a murky day at Chelmsford."

Surrey v Kent

BBC London 94.9's Mark Church at The Oval:

"No play before lunch because of rain.

"An early luncheon has been taking and hoping for better weather this afternoon."

Middlesex 283, Somerset 185-8

BBC London 94.9's Kevin Hand

at Northwood:

"Light drizzle turned to heavy rain as an early lunch has been called without a ball bowled on day three at Northwood.

"Somerset are 185-8 in their first innings, still 98 runs behind Middlesex and the hosts will fancy a positive couple of sessions with the bat if they can quickly wrap the visitors' tail up.

"The pitch has offered swing, pace and bounce and has been testing with three batsman struck on the helmet so, weather permitting, an eventual chase of anything over 200 would be unlikely."

It was certainly a different picture on the opening day at the Merchant Taylors' School...

We've got some cricket folks...

After a thoroughly miserable Monday morning, the rain has relented at Chester-le-Street and play is underway.

And what a start it's been for Durham who have reduced Warwickshire to 12-3 in reply to their first innings 314.

It's that man Chris Rushworth who's taken all three wickets, including two in two balls.

Elsewhere play has just started at Chelmsford where Glamorgan are 40-3, still trailing Essex by 239 runs.

However, it's a wet start in London and so there will be no play before lunch between Middlesex and Somerset and Surrey against Kent.
