Middlesex build lead over Yorkshire

Middlesex 106 & 441-8, Yorkshire 299

BBC London 94.9's Kevin Hand at Lord's:

"Middlesex have opened up a 248-run lead over champions Yorkshire at tea on day three at Lord's.

"The fightback has been lead by the 149 of Nick Compton, who has done his chance of an England recall no harm at all.

"The hosts may well have nudged themselves into the position as favourites to win the game. Remarkable from their position of 0-3 after the first over of the match."

Hampshire make solid start

Hampshire 240 & 152-1, Somerset 630-9 dec

BBC Somerset's Stephen Lamb at Taunton:

"Hampshire lost Michael Carberry for 56, lbw to the left-arm spin of Jack Leach, as they reduced the deficit to 239 runs by tea on day three at Taunton.

"In a fascinating afternoon session, Jamie Overton in particular bowled well for the hosts, teaming up with Leach to test the experience of Carberry and Jimmy Adams, who reached the interval unbeaten on 77, with skipper James Vince on six."

Kent press for Cardiff win

Kent 309 & 451-2, Glamorgan 207 & 101-2

BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb at Swalec Stadium:

"Kent set Glamorgan a mammoth 554 to win when they declared early on the third afternoon in Cardiff, with Joe Denly finishing on 161 not out.

"Matt Coles claimed two cheap Glamorgan wickets, but James Kettleborough reached his second half-century for the county as he and Colin Ingram prevented further inroads before tea."


Essex 464-7 dec, Derbyshire 94 & 182

Ravi Bopara took 4-29 as Essex completed an emphatic victory over Derbyshire by an innings and 188 runs on the third morning at Derby.

Resuming on 102-3, the home side were bowled out for 182, with Shiv Thakor and Tony Palladino both unable to bat because of injury.

Fellow all-rounder Ryan ten Doeschate provided the main support for Bopara, claiming 3-15.

Compton defies Yorkshire

Middlesex 106 & 361-6, Yorkshire 299 - lunch, day three

BBC London 94.9's Kevin Hand at Lord's:

"Middlesex have built a lead of 168 over the county champions, losing only one wicket during the third morning.

"Nick Compton is leading the resistance with an unbeaten 144 as he makes a bid for a winter tour spot with England."

Notts pair share big stand

Nottinghamshire 204 & 262-5, Durham 372 - lunch, day three

BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle at Trent Bridge:

"Nottinghamshire produced an effective counter-attack on the third morning against Durham, thanks to a classy fifth-wicket partnership of 153 between Riki Wessels and Samit Patel.

"Wessels made 85 and was the sole wicket to fall during the session, caught at slip off Barry McCarthy, as Notts reached lunch with an overall lead of 94.

"Patel's fifty arrived from 87 balls after he was dropped off Graham Onions, and at the interval he was on 60 with Chris Read unbeaten on nine."

Hants battle to avoid innings loss

Hampshire 240 & 74-0, Somerset 630-9 dec - lunch, day three

BBC Somerset's Stephen Lamb at Taunton:

"Somerset eventually declared their first innings after a flurry of strokes from Jim Allenby and the Overton twins extended their lead to 390.

"Allenby finished unbeaten on 56, while two wickets for the slow left-arm of Liam Dawson enabled him to finish with figures of 5-139.

"Hampshire opener Michael Carberry was reprieved on 37 when Marcus Trescothick dropped a chance at second slip off Jamie Overton, but at lunch the visitors still trail by 316 runs."

Kent pile up huge lead

Kent 309 & 396-2, Glamorgan 207 - lunch, day three

BBC Radio Kent's Ben Watts at Swalec Stadium:

"Another session dominated by the visitors as Rob Key and Joe Denly set a new record partnership for the second wicket against Glamorgan of 222.

"The stand came to an end when Key, who had Daniel Bell-Drummond on as his runner at the time, was caught on the square leg boundary off a Graham Wagg bouncer for 158.

"Denly passed 1000 first-class runs for the summer on his way to 132 not out at the interval, while Sam Northeast (24 not out) reached 2000 runs in all cricket for Kent this season."
