Close of play

Leicestershire 316 v Worcestershire 249-8

It's stumps at Grace Road and what a finish by Matt Henry! The New Zealander hits Clint McKay's final three deliveries of the day to the boundary to move to 30 not out.

Henry and Jack Shantry have seen out a tricky final few overs and can have another go in the morning to get Worcestershire somewhere close to Leicestershire's first-innings' score.

They trail by 67.

Henry on the counter-attack!

Leicestershire 316 v Worcestershire 234-8

Worcestershire may have numbers nine and ten at the crease, but they're both more than capable of holding a bat.

Jack Shantry has a first-class hundred and Matt Henry, who's just hit Clint McKay for back-to-back fours, has a highest score of 75 not out.

Leicestershire's lead is down to 82. Two overs to go.

One game left

Leicestershire 316 v Worcestershire 221-8

So we're down to just one match on this fine May evening.

There are four overs to go at Grace Road where Joe Leach has just been bowled by Ben Raine to leave Worcestershire eight down.

Close of play

Hampshire 270 v Notts 99-5

Time is also called at The Ageas Bowl where Notts are on the back foot at 99-5 - still trailing by 171.

Ryan McLaren did the damage for Hants taking three wickets.

Stumps at Bristol

Northants 176 v Gloucestershire 240-4

Couple of late blows for Northants as Gloucestershire batsman Hamish Marshall is removed by Richard Gleeson with the final ball of the day for nought.

Chris Dent also went late on for 93, but still very much Gloucestershire's day.

Close of play

Glamorgan 260 v Essex 300-9

It is indeed stumps at Cardiff.

Stumps at Old Trafford

Surrey 191 v Lancashire 342-9

It's over for the day at Lancashire where Surrey have fought back well after Alviro Petersen threatened to take the game away from them with a fine century.

Still a big ask for the visitors to salvage anything from the game though - Lancashire lead by 151.

Close of play at Edgbaston

Warwickshire 313 & 15-2 v Durham 190

A dramatic day in England's second city comes to a close with Warwickshire in a healthy position.

It's an afternoon that will be remembered for Chris Woakes' 9-36 with the ball. Incredible.

Bad light stops play

Glamorgan 260 v Essex 300-9

They're off for bad light at Cardiff and unlikely to get back on. Glamorgan have fought back well in the evening session with regular wickets, while skipper Ryan ten Doeschate is unbeaten on 43 for the visitors.

WICKET Dent (c Levi b Prasanna 93)

Northants 176 v Gloucestershire 240-3

Seekkuge Prasanna has his first wicket for Northants and it's a big one.

Chris Dent nicks the Sri Lankan to Richard Levi at slip, seven short of his hundred.

Michael Klinger is still there on 63.

Worcestershire lose two in two

Leicestershire 316 v Worcestershire 211-7

Leicestershire pick up two key wickets at Grace Road as Tom Kohler-Cadmore is out lbw to Ben Raine for 44 before Ben Cox is bowled by a ball that kept low from Clint McKay for 49.

The game is suddenly turned on its head in the space of a minute.

WICKET Woakes (b Onions 4)

Warwickshire 313 & 4-2 v Durham 190

What a strange old day it's been at Edgbaston. After his heroics with the ball, Chris Woakes is sent in as nightwatchman for Warwickshire but is bowled third ball by Graham Onions.

A second nightwatchman, Chris Wright follows two deliveries later in the same manner. Varun Chopra - Warwickshire's regular opener, comes in at four!

Close of play at Lord's

Somerset 376 v Middlesex 139-0

It's been Middlesex's day by a country mile at Lord's. 

After bowling Somerset out for 376 from their overnight 219-2, Middlesex openers Sam Robson (67 not out) and Nick Gubbins (65 not out) have set a superb platform for a huge first-innings' score.


Warwickshire 313 v Durham 190

Jack Bannister has the best first-class bowling figures for Warwickshire - 10-41 - against Combined Services in 1959.

Woakes' haul puts him eighth on Warwickshire's all-time list of bowling performances and is the best since Bannister's haul.


Warwickshire 313 v Durham 190

As if you could make Woakes' figures look any more impressive?!

The Chris Woakes spread of wickets was actually 9-19 in 14 overs after his first 6 went 0-17. #bbccricket


Warwickshire 313 v Durham 190

Well, where on earth do I start with this?! Get the call up by England in the morning, take 9-36 in the afternoon.

Chris Woakes take a bow. The 27-year-old Birmingham-born all-rounder removes Barry McCarthy to wrap up the Durham innings.

I'll try and find out where that ranks in the best figures of all time for a Warwickshire bowler.

John Martin: Chris W doing well, but remember Graham Onions taking 9 v Notts and he ran out the other one. #bbccricket

Fifty for Michael Klinger

Northants 176 v Gloucestershire 211-2

Gloucestershire are on for a massive first-innings' lead at Bristol - led by Chris Dent (81 not out) and Michael Klinger who brings up his fifty off 108 balls.

Michael Klinger back into the swing of things. Far from fluent but finds a way to fifty #bbccricket

Lewis Buckler: Well Chris Woakes is putting his claim for an England game on Friday forward well. #bbccricket

Chris Woakes takes eight wickets

Warwickshire 313 v Durham 167-9

I think if Sri Lanka could see this Woakes performance they would forefeit the second test now. Follow-on avoided though. #bbccricket


Warwickshire 313 v Durham 163-9

I've run out of superlatives to describe Chris Woakes' spell this afternoon. He now has 8-36 - his best first-class haul.

James Weighell is the latest man to go, caught by debutant Andrew Umeed.

Can he make it nine in from of England selector James Whittaker?!

WICKET Davies (c sub b Meaker 13)

Surrey 191 v Lancashire 293-7

Phew, it's getting hard to keep tabs on this! Alex Davies is out at Old Trafford before Tom Bailey is run out at the end of Stuart Meaker's same over. 

Lancashire are seven down. MEANWHILE AT EDGBASTON...

Notts in deep trouble

Hampshire 270 v Notts 72-5

Wickets are falling everywhere at the moment. Nottinghamshire are now 72-5 as Ryan McLaren removes Samit Patel for three, a couple of overs after dismissing Brendon Taylor.

McLaren has 3-13 and Notts still need 49 to avoid the follow-on.


Warwickshire 313 v Durham 162-8

This is an absolute bowling masterclass from Warwickshire's Chris Woakes.

He now has 7-36 after removing Ryan Pringle and Brydon Carse in the same over. Both Durham batsmen edge the England all-rounder behind.

What a way to celebrate a call-up to England's Test squad!

Fifty for Nick Gubbins

Somerset 376 v Middlesex 118-0

Middlesex opener Nick Gubbins joins his batting partner Sam Robson in reaching a half-century.

Somerset have dropped Robson twice and in danger of becoming dejected if this batting dominance continues.

Restart at 17:25

Leicestershire 316 v Worcestershire 153-5

Play is due to restart at any moment at Grace Road.

Close of play at Derby

Derbyshire 492 v Kent 79-1

It came out of the blue, but a heavy rain shower has ended play early between Derbyshire and Kent.

It's pretty soggy according to BBC Radio Derby's Dave Fletcher...

No surprise after 45 minutes of torrential rain we are off for the day at @DerbyshireCCC #bbccricket

Dropped catch

Somerset 376 v Middlesex 111-0

Somerset fans might want to look away now...

Trego (gully) & Trescothick (2nd slip) have both put down Robson (57*) with chances that looked harder to drop. 4th Lord's ton? #bbccricket

WICKET Croft (lbw b T Curran 42)

Surrey 191 v Lancashire 281-5

Surrey are just about clinging on to Lancashire's coat tails as Tom Curran picks up his second wicket.

The 21-year-old dismisses Lancashire captain Steven Croft leg-before-wicket for 42.

The lead is already up to 90, but at least Surrey have the two well-set batsmen back in the pavilion.

Essex collapsing

Glamorgan 260 v Essex 258-7

Essex's first-innings' lead in Cardiff doesn't look like it is going to be as significant as an hour ago when Ravi Bopara was still going strong.

James Foster is now out, trapped lbw by Timm van der Gugten for nine.

However skipper Ryan ten Doeschate and Graham Napier are at the crease and both are capable of taking the game away from any side at a rate of knots.

Bad light stops play

Leicestershire 316 v Worcestershire 153-5

They're off for bad light at Grace Road with the game in the balance. Worcestershire's Tom Kohler-Cadmore - following his 54-ball 127 in the T20 Blast on Friday - is on 27 and Ben Cox has made 20.

Mike Ball: Has Woakes just bowled himself into the starting XI for England? #bbccricket

He's certainly given himself a good chance Mike!

Five-wicket haul for Woakes

Warwickshire 313 v Durham 146-6

Well, if there was any way to say to England "pick me" - then Chris Woakes has certainly done it at Edgbaston.

The all-rounder now has five of the six Durham wickets to fall as he tempts Michael Richardson to nick behind.

Woakes has 5-30 off 14 overs.

Fifty for Sam Robson

Somerset 376 v Middlesex 96-0

I bet Sam Robson wishes he could pack up the Lord's wicket and take it with him wherever he goes because it's yet another fifty for the Middlesex opener at his home ground.

Robson's scores at Lord's this season - 231, 106, 114* and 50*.

Petersen out

Surrey 191 v Lancashire 263-4

Lancashire's Alviro Petersen is out for 105 just moments after reaching his ton, as he edges Surrey quick Stuart Meaker behind.

It's been a pretty good season for the veteran so far though...

.@AlviroPetersen's scores in the @CountyChamp this season: 48, 31*, 83, 81, 61, 22, 105. Form. #RedRoseTogether

WICKET Bopara (c Cooke b Hogan 80)

Glamorgan 260 v Essex 233-5

Ravi Bopara gets out just when a century looks nailed on. The Essex all-rounder drives Michael Hogan to Chris Cooke at point and has to go.

Things are now looking slightly more tricky for the Division Two leaders in gloomy conditions.

WICKET Lumb (c Adams b McLaren 32)

Hampshire 270 v Notts 53-3

Nottinghamshire are in a bit of trouble now at The Ageas Bowl as Ryan McLaren has Michael Lumb caught by Jimmy Adams for 32.

Riki Wessels is the new man in.
