Nottinghamshire 570-7 dec, Sussex 53-0

County Championship Division One

BBC Sussex's Adrian Harms

at Horsham:

"Nearly a record-breaking afternoon at Horsham where, under leaden skies, James Taylor fell just 21 runs short of the all-time Nottinghamshire score by Walter Keeton in 1939

"However, his 291 was a career-best, and his partnership of 365 with Chris Read, who made 121 was a Notts sixth-wicket record against Sussex

"There was not much comfort for Sussex, except for the performance of Steve Magoffin, whose 31 overs cost just 53 runs, an amazing effort out of a total of 570."

Durham 421, Hampshire 80-3

County Championship Division One

BBC Newcastle's Martin Emmerson

at the Ageas Bowl:

"Mist took the players off for a few minutes this afternoon, but they were able to resume under the lights a few minutes later and at tea Hampshire are 80-3 in response to Durham's big first innings score.

Gordon Muchall made 145 in the Durham innings. beating his previous best against Hampshire by five runs.

"Hampshire have lost Jimmy Adams for five, becoming Chris Rushworth's 25th lbw victim of the season, while Liam Dawson, back from a loan spell at Essex, made just nine and James Vince 19."

Lancashire 698-5 dec, Glamorgan 51-2

County Championship Division Two

BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb

at Colwyn Bay:

"Lancashire turned the screw on Glamorgan on the second afternoon, with Glen Chapple claiming two early wickets after massive career-best scores from former South African Test batsmen Alviro Petersen (286) and Ashwell Prince (261).

"Petersen (286) and Prince (261) smashed their way to a county-record stand of 501."

They're also only the 13th pair in first-class history to share a 500-run partnership. Glamorgan trail by 647 runs at tea.

Somerset 265 & 90-4, Warwickshire 365

County Championship Division One

Somerset are in a precarious position at tea after losing three wickets for no runs during the afternoon session against Warwickshire.

After Sam Hain's unbeaten 103 gave the home side a lead of exactly 100, Somerset lost Marcus Trescothick, Michael Bates and James Hildreth with their score on 32.

Tom Cooper followed, but Tom Abell was 49 not out at the interval, with the visitors still 10 runs behind.

Derbyshire beat Northants by seven wickets

County Championship Division Two

BBC Radio Northampton's Alex Winter

at Wantage Road:

"Derbyshire claimed their third win of the season by reaching 72-3 just 50 minutes after lunch on day three.

"They dominated the game from the first evening, and despite Ben Duckett's first-class best 154 in the second innings Northants were unable to put enough runs on the board to trouble Derbyshire.

"Northants at least have an extra day's rest before their penultimate T20 Blast group game at Edgbaston on Wednesday night - victory in one of their final two matches will secure a quarter-final spot."

LUNCH ROUND-UP

Nottinghamshire 455-5 v Sussex

County Championship Division One

BBC Sussex's Adrian Harms

at Horsham:

"After the debacle at Lords yesterday, James Taylor could not have picked a better time to score the sixth double hundred of his career.

"On an overcast morning, he smashed the ball to all parts, bringing up his 200 with a six over long-on into the tennis courts.

"Taylor was 225 not out at lunch and his unbroken partnership of 269 with Chris Read (87no) is a Notts record for the sixth wicket against Sussex."

Yorkshire 430, Worcestershire 10-0

County Championship Division One

Captain Andrew Gale struck 164 as Yorkshire posted 430 all out in their first innings against Worcestershire at Scarborough.

The hosts claimed maximum batting bonus points and will now look to make inroads into the visitors' batting line-up this afternoon.

Derbyshire 361 & 11-1, Northants 116 & 316 (f/o)

County Championship Division Two

BBC Radio Northampton's Alex Winter

at Wantage Road:

"Ben Duckett and Josh Cobb looked relatively comfortable for 75 minutes this morning, raising a stand of 54 for Northants, but Duckett's departure for 154 brought about a collapse of four wickets for 25 and Derbyshire should have no trouble chasing just 72 to win.

"At least Duckett can take a first-class best score from this match, responding to

negative news about him in fine fashion with his third Championship century, and second in three matches."

Durham 399-7 v Hampshire

County Championship Division One

BBC Radio Solent's Kevan James at

Ageas Bowl:

"Durham have put themselves into a position where they shouldn't now lose this game. Gordon Muchall and Usman Arshad (60) enjoyed batting on a docile wicket.

"Their partnership of 128 runs for the seventh wicket is a county record against Hampshire."

Essex 260, Kent 186-1

County Championship Division Two

BBC Radio Kent's Ben Watts

in Tunbridge Wells:

"A profitable morning for Kent on a good batting track at the Nevill Ground as Daniel Bell-Drummond (81) and Rob Key (63no) put together Kent's highest opening stand in the County Championship this summer despite overcast conditions.

"Although Jesse Ryder removed Bell-Drummond courtesy of a drag on with the score on 127, he then dropped Joe Denly at first slip on nought, and Denly was unbeaten on 30 as he and Key eased Kent through to lunch."

Lancashire 566-2 v Glamorgan

County Championship Division Two

BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb at Colwyn Bay:

"A record-breaking morning session saw Alviro Petersen (270 not out) and Ashwell Prince (229 not out) rack up Lancashire's highest ever partnership of 462, carving the ball to all parts of the field.

"Their stand beat the previous best of 371 by Frank Watson and Ernest Tyldesley against Surrey at Old Trafford back in 1928.

"The partnership is the biggest ever against Glamorgan, while Petersen's knock is also an individual career-best, topping the 210 he scored for Glamorgan against Surrey four years ago."

Somerset 265 & 1-0, Warwickshire 365

County Championship Division One

Paceman Craig Overton achieved career-best figures of 6-74, but Somerset have plenty of work to do with the bat after Sam Hain's unbeaten century for Warwickshire on day three at Edgbaston.

Hain, who turned 20 last Thursday, reached his second Championship hundred of the summer off 162 balls before running out of partners on 103.

His efforts earned the home side a first-innings lead of exactly 100, which Somerset reduced by one run before a shower forced an early lunch.
