County Championship round-up

Lancs still waiting after Glamorgan draw

Lancashire 462, Glamorgan 213 and 159-3

BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb at Old Trafford:

"Lancashire's promotion party will have to wait after Glamorgan hung on for a draw at Old Trafford, despite being forced to follow-on before mid-day on the final day.

"Captain Jacques Rudolph led the way with a determined defensive knock of 63 off 206 balls."

Rain denies Leicestershire

Northants 325 & 162, Leicestershire 372 & 30-1

BBC Radio Northampton's Alex Winter:

"Pretty cruel on Leicestershire with rain ruining their pursuit of back-to-back County Championship wins for the first time since 2010.

"Only 45 minutes of play was possible on day four at Wantage Road, with the visitors forced to settle for a draw despite needing just 86 more runs to win.

"Northants now turn their attention to T20 Finals Day on Saturday and have several injury concerns. Steven Crook is top of that list, having gone for a scan on his right ankle and the club await news of potential ligament or tendon damage."

Glamorgan hold up Lancashire

Lancashire 462, Glamorgan 213 and 108-2

BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb

at Old Trafford:

"Lancashire ran into some stubborn Glamorgan resistance on the final afternoon at Old Trafford, claiming just one wicket in the session through James Faulkner, as they look to seal promotion.

"Glamorgan captain Jacques Rudolph reached a stubborn 50 off 150 balls while Chris Cooke also dug in, as Lancashire raced through their overs."

Notts need four wickets for victory

Nottinghamshire 600, Warwickshire 260 & 157-6

BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle at

Trent Bridge:

Two important wickets for Samit Patel inched Nottinghamshire closer to victory on the final afternoon of their Championship match against Warwickshire.

"Patel removed both William Porterfield and Tim Ambrose to leave the visitors on 157-6 at tea, still 183 runs behind.

"With inclement weather being predicted, Nottinghamshire will be looking for quick wickets at the start of the final session."

Taunton suffers wash-out

Somerset 565-5 dec, Worcestershire 172-4

Worcestershire were denied the chance to pick up important batting bonus points when the final day's play was abandoned against Somerset at Taunton.

Persistent rain forced the umpires to call the match off as a draw in early afternoon, with no play possible.

Surrey forced to settle for draw

Gloucestershire 233, Surrey 349-6

Promotion-chasing Surrey's hopes of forcing a win on the final day against Gloucestershire at Bristol were dashed by the weather.

No play was possible because of rain, but they remain in a strong position to seal a return to Division One, with three games to play.

Notts press for victory

Nottinghamshire 600, Warwickshire 260 & 116-4

BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle

at Trent Bridge:

"Nottinghamshire secured four of the wickets they need if they are to defeat Warwickshire on the final day, with the visitors still 224 runs away from making the home side bat again.

"William Porterfield began with 23 to his name and he batted resolutely throughout the morning to reach the interval on 48 not out, his highest Championship score of the season.

"Jonathan Trott fell lbw for the second time in the match and Brett Hutton struck for a second time when Sam Hain chipped a catch to short mid-wicket to leave Warwickshire up against it at lunch."

Middlesex claim vital win

Middlesex 196 & 280, Durham 169 & 236

Paceman James Harris took 5-71 as Middlesex closed the gap on leaders Yorkshire with a 71-run win over Durham at Chester-le-Street.

It took Middlesex 25 overs to pick up the five wickets they needed after Durham resumed on 134-5.

Borthwick was caught behind off Neil Dexter after passing 1,000 runs for the season and Harris cleaned up the tail.

Kerrigan gives Lancashire hope

Lancashire 462, Glamorgan 213 & 39-1

BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb at Old Trafford:

"Lancashire are still hoping for a promotion party at Old Trafford after spinner Simon Kerrigan polished off the Glamorgan first innings with three quick wickets on day four, last man Kieran Bull unable to bat.

"Kyle Jarvis then claimed the wicket of Will Bragg for eight as Glamorgan reached lunch at 39-1 after following on, still 210 runs behind the home side."

Sussex v Yorkshire ends in draw

Yorkshire 494, Sussex 493-7

The visitors took 11 points from the game, moving them closer to a second successive county title.
