So, around about six overs still to bowl at Trent Bridge in the only game still going today.

As we wait for stumps there, we'll bring you up to speed with some of the other headlines from today.

Stumps at Chester-le-Street

Durham 166 v Northamptonshire 59-3

32 overs have been lost in this Division Two match as stumps is called with light too poor for play to resume.

It was certainly the visitors' day at Chester-le-Street after a career-best 6-34 from Nathan Buck helped Northants bowled Durham out for just 166.

Despite losing three wickets, the away side remain firmly in control of the match.

Close of play at Headingley

Yorkshire 93-2 v Lancashire 123

As predicted a short while ago, they've called it quits for the day at Headingley.

Well and truly Yorkshire's day and another one to remember for Ben Coad.

The White Rose will resume tomorrow just 30 runs behind after an eventful first day.

Bad light stops play at Chester-le-Street

Durham 166 v Northamptonshire 59-3

Durham were desperate to stay out there having taken three early wickets but the umpires drag the players off for bad light.

That might well be it for the day at Chester-le-Street but we'll have to wait for official confirmation.

Still going in Division Two....

It might have all ground to a halt in Division One's action, but they're still going in two Division Two games....

Derbyshire have just lost a first wicket against Nottinghamshire in their reply to 229. Louis Reece is caught at first slip off Luke Wood's bowling for 17 to leave them 25-1.

Meanwhile at Chester-le-Street, Northamptonshire have progressed to 56-3 now in response to Durham's 166.

No result at Edgbaston

As predicted, the weather's beaten them in Birmingham between Australia and New Zealand.

No result in that game between the other two sides in England's group so the points are shared.

New Zealand face England in Cardiff on Tuesday.

Rain stops play at Headingley

Yorkshire 93-2 v Lancashire 123

Light rain becomes slightly heavier rain up in Leeds and the umpires take the players off the field with 8.2 overs still to be bowled in the day.

Yorkshire just 30 runs behind after making a cracking start to the day that saw the morning session lost to the elements.

Doesn't look like they'll get back on for any more action....

New Zealand 291 (45 overs) v Australia 53-3 (9 overs)

Talking of that Champions Trophy match, they may not get a result at Edgbaston after a series of rain breaks.

Australia were set a revised target of 235 off 33 overs before they were halted at 53-3 off nine.

They need to get back out there at 18:50 BST to have time to complete a game of any description, but it looks like the elements may beat them and leave it as a no result.

Don't think many expected a restart as virtually everyone has gone home. 15 overs to be bowled though !!

Close of play at Ageas Bowl

Hampshire 294-3 v Warwickshire

Stumps drawn in Southampton at the end of a day Jimmy Adams and Sean Ervine won't forget in a hurry.

They finish unbeaten on 104 and 160 respectively and their fourth-wicket partnership will resume tomorrow morning on 263 runs.

Quite some recovery from 31-3 at 11:45 BST.

Another one down for Northants

Durham 166 v Northamptonshire 28-3

Alex Winter

BBC Radio Northampton sport at Chester-le-Street

A great performance with the ball for Northants, just what Alex Wakely would have wanted.

Nathan Buck the star with 6-34, a first-class best for him. It was a consistent display for the most part from Northants with all the bowlers getting on the board.

But wickets are continuing to tumble and Northants are in a fight to get to the close in some decent shape.

Rob Keogh the latest to succumb to Barry McCarthy for just two.

The forecast tomorrow is good and potentially a much better day to bat - how many wickets can they take to day two?

Close of play at Lord's

Middlesex v Somerset 161-5

All done for the day at Lord's after no play was possible after 15:20 BST due to a combination of heavy showers and bad light...

Play abandoned for the day. Somerset will resume 161/5 tomorrow with Elgar unbeaten on 77 #MIDvSOM

WICKET Handscomb (c Davies b Procter) 33

Lancashire 123 v Yorkshire 85-2

A useful 64-run second-wicket partnership between Adam Lyth and Peter Handscomb is ended as the latter edges behind off Luke Procter.

The hosts trial by just 38 first-inning runs though.

Close of play at Hove

Sussex 339-3 v Worcestershire

Close of play down at Hove where Sussex have dominated the opening day against Worcestershire.

Luke Wells finishes unbeaten on 139 with former skipper Luke Wright at the other end on 27.

Ervine reaches 11,000 first-class runs

Hampshire 286-3 v Warwickshire

Another boundary in Sean Ervine's marathon innings sees him pass 11,000 first-class career runs.

Ervine now on to 157 not out with thee overs remaining in the day's play.

100 for Jimmy Adams

Hampshire 282-3 v Warwickshire

Another century made at the Ageas Bowl on this first day and it's Jimmy Adams the man to get to the landmark this time.

Drives two runs down the ground off Boyd Rankin to get to three figures off 261 balls, including 11 fours.

That's his first first-class century since July 2015 and his first at home since August 2014.

Durham make double early breakthrough

Durham 166 v Northamptonshire 12-2

Wickets continue to fall up at Chester-le-Street after they lost the entire morning session.

Durham have claimed the early wickets of Rob Newton and Alex Wakeley to leave the visitors 12-2 in reply to their earlier 166.

Rain returns to Trent Bridge

Nottinghamshire 229 v Derbyshire 9-0

Dave Bracegirdle

BBC Radio Nottingham commentator

Rain has stopped play at Trent Bridge with Derbyshire on 9-0 replying to Nottinghamshire's 229.

150 for Sean Ervine

Hampshire 269-3 v Warwickshire

Runs keep flowing for Hampshire and Sean Ervine late in the day at The Ageas Bowl.

Strikes his 14th four of his 246-ball stay at the crease off Boyd Rankin's bowling to reach his latest landmark of 150.

The Zimbabwean is also now just four runs away from reaching 11,000 first-class career runs.

Lyth digs deep for Yorkshire

Lancashire 123 v Yorkshire 62-1

Despite the early loss of Alex Lees, Yorkshire have been relatively untroubled at Headingley.

Adam Lyth has moved on nicely to 35 with the White Rose county 62-1, trailing by just 61 runs.

It's fair to say Steven Croft's decision to bat first today has not proved to be a successful one, just yet.

Bad light stops play

Middlesex v Somerset 161-5

Still no play since 15:20 BST at Lord's and it's not looking too promising for an immediate restart by the looks of the picture from our man there...
