We'll be back tomorrow with live text and radio coverage from 10:55 BST. Until then, goodbye.

Stumps at Edgbaston

Warwickshire 273-8 v Durham

It's also stumps in Birmingham. Warwickshire have collapsed from 195-1 to 273-8.

But the day will be remembered for debutant Andrew Umeed's century.

Close of play at Old Trafford

Surrey 191 v Lancashire 16-0

Lancashire close the day unscathed as Haseeb Hameed and Tom Smith see out 12 overs in tricky conditions.

Earlier Kyle Jarvis picked up six wickets as Surrey were skittled for 191. A day of dominance for the Red Rose county.

Stumps at Grace Road

Leicestershire 253-4 v Worcestershire

That's it for the day between Leicestershire and Worcestershire after a little five-over mini-session.

Half-centuries for Paul Horton, Angus Robson and Neil Dexter have put the hosts in command.

Mark Pettini will resume on 45 on day two.

Close of play at The Ageas Bowl

Hampshire 149-4 v Notts

What a really good effort from Hampshire's Sean Ervine (38 not out) and Tom Alsop (32 not out) in the final hour.

The pair have put on 65 for the fifth wicket and have given something for the hosts to build on in the morning.

Warwickshire collapsing

Warwickshire 259-8 v Durham

This is some capitulation from Warwickshire. Keith Barker edges Brydon Carse behind and the Bears are suddenly eight down.

Who saw this coming when they were 195-1?!

Close of play

Glam 260 v Essex 29-1 - stumps

BBC Wales Sport's Nick Webb reports from Cardiff at stumps:

"Essex survive relatively unscathed, blocking out the last hour of the day after losing Nick Browne lbw to Graham Wagg for three - a mere 252 short of his last effort.

"Graham Napier's 5-82 was the starring performance of the day as Essex's seamers bowled consistent lines and induced a Glamorgan slump in the afternoon.

"Chris Cooke's 63 was the top score, while a stand of 79 between Andrew Salter and Craig Meschede put the middle-order's efforts into context."

WICKET Woakes (c Jennings b Weighell 4)

Warwickshire 255-7 v Durham

Oh my word, this is some turnaround by Durham in the evening session.

England and Warwickshire all-rounder Chris Woakes is now back in the hutch as he becomes James Weighell's fourth victim - out to a stunning leg-side catch by Keaton Jennings.

Warwickshire have lost 6-60.

Close of play

Northants 134-7 v Gloucestershire

Time is indeed called in Bristol. The shortened day has belonged to Gloucestershire paceman Josh Shaw who picked up four wickets to leave Northants in strife.

Play resuming

Leicestershire 245-4 v Worcestershire

They're coming back on for five overs at Grace Road. I guess Worcestershire will be happy to play as many overs as they can after losing so much time this season already.

Although I'm not a fan - why can't they just start earlier tomorrow?!

Stumps at Derby

Derbyshire 387-7 v Kent

A day belonging to Derbyshire's batsmen comes to a close with Shiv Thakor unbeaten on 86.

Earlier there was a century for Wayne Madsen and New Zealand international Neil Broom fell for 96.

Derbyshire in the driving seat.

WICKET Ambrose (c Borthwick b Weighell 6)

Warwickshire 247-6 v Durham

Hmm, Warwickshire are really wobbling now. Tim Ambrose is caught by Scott Borthwick at second slip off James Weighell and the Bears have now lost 5-49 since the resumption after the rain break.

Durham bowlers are on 🔥🔥🔥. WHAT A COMEBACK. @WarwickshireCCC are now 247/6. @JamesWeighell has three wickets for 65 runs. #DURvWAR

Century and out for Andrew Umeed

Warwickshire 243-5 v Durham

Warwickshire debutant Andrew Umeed brings up a well-deserved century at Edgbaston, but two balls later he's out. 

Umeed pulls Graham Onions to mid-wicket, but gets a standing ovation as he leaves the field.

What a shame for the 20-year-old, but nonetheless he's put his side in a strong position.  


Surrey 191 v Lancashire

Rory Burns is the last man out for Surrey, lbw to Neil Wagner for 92.

It was a bit of a solo effort from the opener and Surrey's bowlers will now have to shine.

Close of play at Lord's

Somerset 219-2 v Middlesex

With no sign of the light improving, play is called off for the day between Middlesex and Somerset.

It's been Somerset's day with Chris Rogers unbeaten on 104 and James Hildreth set to resume with his Australian partner on 60 in the morning.

Rain stops play

Northants 134-7 v Gloucestershire

See, even BBC Radio Northampton's Alex Winter agrees!

Off for drizzle and probably the close of play. Really poor day for @NorthantsCCC with the bat. 134/7 #bbccricket

Bad light stops play

Northants 134-7 v Gloucestershire

It's been a stop-start day at Bristol and they're off for bad light again. But not before Josh Shaw picks up his fourth wicket - Seekkuge Prasanna top edging the paceman into the hands of David Payne.

I know I had my fingers burnt earlier when trying to make a weather/close of play prediction, but surely that will be stumps!

Wagner strikes!

Surrey 183-9 v Lancashire

Surrey's first innings is rapidly coming to a close at Old Trafford. New Zealand paceman Neil Wagner dismisses skipper Gareth Batty and Mathew Pillans in the space of three balls.

Opener Rory Burns is still there, battling, on 87.

Play resumes at The Ageas Bowl

Hampshire 106-4 v Notts

I mentioned earlier that it could be it for the day at The Ageas Bowl after another rain shower. Shows what I know - they're coming back out!

13 overs to be bowled here (if the weather allows) #bbccricket

Early wicket for Glamorgan

Glamorgan 260 v Essex 5-1

Nick Browne scored a career-best 255 last week, but today he's back in the pavilion for just three.

Graham Wagg provides the breakthrough, trapping the Essex opener lbw, and boy doesn't he look pleased!

Bit of pressure on the Division Two leaders here.

Graham Wagg

Surrey 181-7 v Lancashire

Surrey have steadied the ship in the last hour or so, with Rory Burns and captain Gareth Batty sharing 67 for the eighth wicket.

Opener Burns is on 86.

However things may be a little more tricky now as Kyle Jarvis, who has 6-61, comes back into the attack.

WICKET Trott (c Richardson b Carse 1)

Warwickshire 201-3 v Durham

Wow, 20-year-old Durham paceman Brydon Carse has just removed two cricketers with about a million years of experience between them.

After dismissing Warwickshire skipper Ian Bell, Carse tempts Jonathan Trott to edge behind and the Bears' innings suddenly looks a bit more unstable.

I wonder what Andrew Umeed is making of it from the other end. The debutant is 77 not out.

Rain stops play

Hampshire 106-4 v Notts

BBC Radio Solent's Kevan James has more on the latest rain delay at The Ageas Bowl:

"Just 14 overs were possible in that period of play before the rain returned. Hampshire scored 40 runs for the loss of Will Smith.

"20-year-old Tom Alsop is back in the side as James Vince is away on England duty.

"He played  the first two County Championship matches of the season when Jimmy Adams was out injured and managed one score of 24 and two single figure scores.

"He hit two hundreds for the second team last week and will be hoping that with the Hampshire batting order still searching for runs, that he can make a big impression."

Derbyshire 309-6 v Kent

Derbyshire are on course for a big first-innings' total against Kent here.

New Zealand international Neil Broom was trapped lbw by Adam Ball, four runs short of his century, but Shiv Thakor is still there on 58.

Rain stops play

Hampshire 106-4 v Notts

Ah, it's raining again at The Ageas Bowl. That could well be it for the day.


Glamorgan 260 v Essex

Graham Napier wraps up the Glamorgan innings with his fifth wicket, bowling Michael Hogan.

Napier is the leading wicket taker in the County Championship with 29 victims.

It's a pretty impressive comeback by the Essex bowlers with Glamorgan having been 96-1 before lunch.

WICKET Bell (c Borthwick b Carse 38)

Warwickshire 195-2 v Durham

Durham finally have another wicket at Edgbaston as Warwickshire captain Ian Bell dabs Brydon Carse to Scott Borthwick at second slip.

Andrew Umeed is now 30 away from a century on debut.

'Not pretty, but gritty'

Somerset 219-2 v Middlesex

The players have just gone off for bad light at Lord's but  BBC Radio Bristol's Anthony Gibson has more on Chris Rogers' century:

"Chris Rogers' first century for Somerset and the 74th of his first career was entirely true to type - not pretty, but thoroughly gritty, and on what must be his favourite ground. 

"It may also prove very important in the context of this game, on a pitch where the runs will always have to be eked out. 

"Warm applause from the Middlesex faithful, for a cricketer who is popular wherever he plays."

Chris Rogers hits a century

Somerset 215-2 v Middlesex

Former Middlesex batsman Chris Rogers loves playing at Lord's and he's got another century under his belt today.

The Australian brings up his ton off 201 balls as he continues to dominate with James Hildreth (60 not out).

50 stand

Warwickshire 179-1 v Durham

Andrew Umeed is enjoying a fine debut for Warwickshire. The 20-year-old passed fifty before a rain delay, and has now put on a half-century stand with his skipper Ian Bell.

Umeed is on 65 and Bell on 27. Durham looking a bit toothless in attack without the injured Chris Rushworth.

'Glamorgan fighting back'

Glam 237-7 v Essex

BBC Wales Sport's Nick Webb reports from Cardiff:

"Glamorgan have earned a semi-respectable total thanks to the eighth-wicket stand between Craig Meschede and Andrew Salter, who came together at 164-7.

"Evergreen Graham Napier and David Masters had caused havoc in the home ranks with six wickets going in the space of 68 runs after lunch.

"But Essex will still be pleased with their efforts overall after choosing to bowl." 

Craig Meschede

WICKET Smith (lbw b Ball 16)

Hampshire 84-4 v Notts

Fresh from his call up to England's Test squad, Jake Ball continues his fine county form with another wicket for Notts.

This time he traps Will Smith lbw for 16 and Ball has 2-33. Hampshire are in trouble in difficult overhead batting conditions.

Couple of fifties

James Hildreth has just reached his half-century for Somerset who are going along nicely at Lord's - they're currently 202-2. Chris Rogers is just six away from his hundred.

Rory Burns is still standing for Surrey despite the clatter of wickets. The opener is 52 not out against Lancashire with Surrey 126-7 at tea. 

Rain stops play

Northants 62-5 v Gloucestershire

It's started to rain at Bristol so there will be a delay in the resumption after tea.

BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Bob Hunt has more from the ground:

"Surely Alex Wakely is wishing he could be asked again if he wished to eschew the toss and ask Gloucestershire to bat.

"He called correctly, batted, and at tea his side are 62-5.

"The home side have bowled well, but there doesn't seem to much wrong with the wicket. Josh Shaw bowled a snorter to dismiss Rob Newton and Craig Miles' second spell finished after five overs picking up two wickets for as many runs."

Hampshire 77-3 v Notts

I think it's going to be one of those days at The Ageas Bowl.

BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle just Tweeted this picture from the ground.

Don't forget to Tweet us using #bbccricket to be part of the action.

Gone pretty dark and the floodlights are now on. Hants 77-3 #bbccricket

Gone pretty dark and the floodlights are now on. Hants 77-3 #bbccricket

Covers coming off at Edgbaston

Warwickshire 166-1 v Durham

The news from Edgbaston is looking much better. Play will resume at 16:45 with 30.4 overs remaining in the day.

WICKET T Curran (c Davies b Jarvis 10)

Surrey 114-7 v Lancashire

Kyle Jarvis is proving to be unplayable! He picks up his sixth wicket as Tom Curran edges him to wicketkeeper Alex Davies and Surrey are in even deeper strife.

Play resumes at The Ageas Bowl

Hampshire 68-3 v Nottinghamshire

After the afternoon session was washed out, the players are finally back out at The Ageas Bowl.

Hants have some rebuilding to do after Nottinghamshire paceman Luke Fletcher dismissed Jimmy Adams and Liam Dawson in consecutive deliveries before lunch.

Five-wicket haul for Kyle Jarvis

Surrey 104-6 v Lancashire

Lancashire paceman Kyle Jarvis picks up his fifth wicket as he has James Burke caught by Liam Livingstone for 31.

Jarvis has 5-53.
