  1. Durham rain prompts early close

    Middlesex 141-5 v Durham

    BBC London 94.9's Kevin Hand at Chester-le-Street:

    "Play has been abandoned on day one, with only 47.3 overs bowled.

    "Middlesex were reduced to 18-3 on a green top under cloudy skies, but Nick Compton's 71 led a recovery before he helped a pull through the keeper.

    "Graham Onions has four of the wickets, while Neil Dexter on 23 and wicketkeeper John Simpson on two are the not out batsman."

  2. TEA ROUND-UP

  3. Curran puts pressure on Glos

    Gloucestershire 203-8 v Surrey

    Tom Curran took five wickets in an innings for the fourth time as Surrey continued to hold the upper hand on day one at Cheltenham.

    Gloucestershire added exactly 100 runs in the afternoon session, but lost Kieran Noema-Barnett, Jack Taylor, Gareth Roderick and James Fuller in the process.

    Roderick batted positively for 71 before he edged to the keeper off Curran, who completed his five-for by bowling Fuller for 48 after a stand of 57 with Tom Smith.

  4. Rain frustrates at Chester-le-Street

    Middlesex 141-5 v Durham

    The players have been off for more than an hour now at Chester-le-Street because of rain.

    Middlesex batsman Nick Compton was caught by Michael Richardson off John Hastings for 71, just before the interruption.

    Durham pace bowler Graham Onions has been the star of the day so far with 4-40.

  5. Godleman hits ton against Kent

    Derbyshire 201-3 v Kent

    Opener Billy Godleman completed his eighth first-class century as Derbyshire cotninued to make steady progress on day one against Kent.

    He struck 10 fours in his 161-ball innings before falling to Calum Haggett, ending a fourth-wicket stand of 62 with Wayne Madsen, who was 46 not out at the tea interval.

  6. Ballance looks for big score

    Yorkshire 227-5 v Sussex

    England batsman Gary Ballance has a half-century in his sights on the opening day of Yorkshire's Championship game at Hove.

    The left-hander was 47 not out at the tea interval, following a fifth-wicket stand of 69 with Glenn Maxwell (43).

    Opener Alex Lees earlier made 69 before playing on to Ollie Robinson, who has 3-52 against his former club.

  7. Hales and Mullaney dominate for Notts

    Nottinghamshire 311-1 v Warwickshire

    BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle at Trent Bridge:

    "Centuries from Alex Hales and Steven Mullaney put Nottinghamshire in control on the first afternoon.

    "Hales, with a great personal record against the Bears, has 173 to his name and Mullaney was on 108 not out as the home side reached tea.

    "Having lost Brendan Taylor, to Boyd Rankin for 22, when the score was on 61 during mid-morning, the duo brought up a county second wicket record against Warwickshire, on a surface that offered the bowlers nothing by way of encouragement."

  8. Skipper Wakely hits hundred for Northants

    Northants 269-7 v Leicestershire

    BBC Radio Northampton's Alex Winter:

    "Alex Wakely only made two first-class centuries in the first seven years of his career but he has now doubled his tally in the last four matches.

    Moving to a first-class best 114 not out by tea helped his side fight back from 42-4 after the first hour.

    "His first century of the season, at Cheltenham, came in very similar circumstances. Wakely the man for a crisis it would seem."

  9. Lancashire make slow progress

    Lancashire 126-2 v Glamorgan

    BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb at Old Trafford:

    "Karl Brown (60 not out) has anchored Lancashire's effort so far batting through the first two sessions between the showers.

    "Glamorgan were relieved to see the back of Alviro Petersen, who scored 286 in their last meeting, but was caught off David Lloyd for 29 just before tea.

    "Debutant Haseeb Hameed had put on a sedate 76 with Brown for the first wicket."

  10. Trescothick misses out on ton

    Somerset 228-3 v Worcestershire

    BBC Somerset's Anthony Gibson at Taunton:

    "Marcus Trescothick may have missed out on his century but his determined, high class innings of 85 has put Somerset in a strong position.

    "He shared partnerships of 112 with Tom Cooper (57) and 93 with James Hildreth, the latter back to his fluent best, with a 52-ball 50.

    "We had spin from both ends at one stage, in conditions that seemed to be crying out for seam and swing, but it was indeed the leg spin of Brett D'Oliveira which accounted for Trescothick, bowled round his legs, sweeping."

  11. LUNCH UPDATES

  12. Godleman keeps Kent at bay

    Derbyshire 98-1 v Kent

    Billy Godleman made an unbeaten 62 as Derbyshire began well on the opening morning at the 3aaa County Ground.

    He shared an opening stand of 93 with Ben Slater, but the latter was bowled for 33 by Matt Hunn shortly before the lunch interval.

    Kent wicketkeeper Sam Billings had to go to hospital for an x-ray after dislocating a finger.

  13. Somerset shrug off early wicket

    Somerset 112-1 v Worcestershire

    BBC Somerset's Anthony Gibson at Taunton:

    "This was another good toss to lose by the look of it as Somerset moved serenely to 112-1 at lunch after being put in.

    "The expected swing and seam movement failed to materialise, despite a heavy atmosphere and greenish pitch, as Marcus Trescothick (51) and Tom Cooper (53) added an unbeaten 104 after the early loss of Johann Myburgh.

    "Trescothick was dropped in the slips off the last ball before the interval - a lapse that Worcestershire may live to regret."

  14. Yorkshire rebuild after poor start

    Yorkshire 102-2 v Sussex

    Alex Lees and Andrew Gale steadied the Division One leaders after an early double-breakthrough by Sussex at Hove.

    Chris Jordan's slip catch sent Andrew Hodd on his way and the England paceman then took a return chance offered by Jack Leaning.

    Lees, however, progressed to 54 not out at lunch, with Gale on 33 and their stand worth 80.

  15. Hales on song for Notts

    Nottinghamshire 110-1 v Warwickshire

    BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle at Trent Bridge:

    "Nottinghamshire made the most of being invited to bat first, with Alex Hales on 56 not out and Steven Mullaney unbeaten on 30 at lunch.

    "William Porterfield, captaining the visitors in the absence of Varun Chopra, would have banked on the surface providing more assistance, but Hales and Brendan Taylor began in positive fashion, adding 61 for the first wicket in just 13 overs.

    "Boyd Rankin separated them when Taylor, on 22, attempted to slash a fiercely rising delivery but edged behind to Tim Ambrose."

  16. Onions strikes early for Durham

    Middlesex 68-3 v Durham

    BBC Newcastle's Martin Emmerson at Chester-le-Street:

    "After a 25-minute delay for rain, just after the start of proceedings, Graham Onions made up for lost time as he took three wickets in two overs to leave Middlesex struggling on 18-3.

    "Having got Paul Stirling caught in the slips for three runs, Onions returned in his next over to bowl Sam Robson off the inside edge for 14 and three balls later Dawid Malan went lbw for a duck.

    "But a 50 partnership from Nick Compton and captain James Franklin has steadied Middlesex at lunch."

  17. Curran brothers make early inroads

    Gloucestershire 103-4 v Surrey

    BBC London 94.9's Mark Church at Bristol:

    "Tom and Sam Curran were amongst the wickets and Gareth Roderick amongst the runs on the opening morning at Bristol.

    "Sam Curran reduced the hosts to 32-2 with the early wickets of Will Tavare and Chris Tent, and brother Tom then removed Hamish Marshall and Benny Howell

    "But at the other end, Roderick seemed to playing a different game to everyone else and at lunch was unbeaten on 68."

  18. McKay burst rocks Northants

    Northants 89-4 v Lancashire

    BBC Radio Northampton's Alex Winter at Northampton:

    "Clint McKay has justified Leicestershire captain Mark Cosgrove's decision to bowl first on day one at Wantage Road.

    "Swinging the ball under cloudy skies, he took 4-23 in his opening eight-over burst, going past 50 Championship wickets for the season.

    "He reduced Northants to 42-4 but Alex Wakely has fought back with a captain's innings, looking in excellent touch for his 68-ball fifty, including 10 fours."

  19. Lancashire start solidly

    Lancashire 47-0 v Glamorgan

    BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb at Old Trafford:

    "Division Two leaders Lancashire made a solid start between the light showers after deciding to bat against third-placed Glamorgan.

    "After a late change of pitch, Karl Brown (25 not out) and teenage debutant Haseeb Hameed (14 not out) played cautiously against the Glamorgan seam attack with few alarms before lunch."
