County Championship round-up

Hameed holds up Surrey

Lancashire 272 & 163-4, Surrey 480 & 283-7d - tea, day four

Eighteen-year-old Haseeb Hameed has defied leaders Surrey with his highest first-class score, an unbeaten 76 for Lancashire at Old Trafford.

Surrey claimed three wickets in the morning session but only one after lunch, with England Under-19 batsman Hameed holding firm, reaching his half century from 149 balls.

The victory target of 492 is seemingly academic, but can Lancs hold out for a draw to retain hopes of the title with a victory next week?

Glamorgan trail at Northampton

Glamorgan 233 & 34-2, Northants 278 - tea, day four

BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb at Wantage Road:

"Glamorgan were still 11 runs behind at tea but with Northants having only a very slim chance of forcing victory.

"David Murphy made 58 not out, while Graham Wagg's four wickets could not prevent the home side taking a 45-run advantage and shading Glamorgan 5-4 on bonus points."

Yorkshire on course for victory

Hampshire 400-9 dec & forfeit, Yorkshire 97-4 dec & 186-3 - tea, day four

BBC Radio Leeds' Dave Callaghan at the Ageas Bowl:

"Well done to both captains for setting up a match and at tea, Yorkshire are looking favourites to win it.

"The champions were in trouble at 37-3, chasing a target of 304, but unbroken partnership of 149 runs between Andrew Gale and Jack Leaning has left them needing another 118 from 36 overs. Gale is unbeaten on 83, with Leaning 58."

Patel shines on final afternoon

Warwickshire 113-3, Notts 365 - tea, day four

BBC Coventry and Warwickshire's Clive Eakin at Edgbaston:

"Both teams have played some decent cricket given the certainty of a draw.

"Warwickshire spinner Jeetan Patel claimed the last two Notts wickets in consecutive balls to reach 50 championship wickets in the season for the fourth year in a row."

Borthwick on song for Durham

Worcestershire 350-7 dec & 217-9 dec, Durham 277 & 119-2 - tea, day four

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

"The sun is out on the final day of the season for Durham, who were set a target of 291 to win by bottom side Worcestershire.

"Scott Borthwick has his second half century of the match and his 11th of the season, and he currently has 1,251 runs this summer, beating his 1,187 from last year.

"There are 39 overs remaining of the game."

Declaration could spark debate

Somerset 374-4 v Sussex 409 - tea, day four

BBC Somerset's Anthony Gibson at Hove:

"Marcus Trescothick's masterful 183 not out has put Somerset within touching distance of maximum batting points, with good support from James Hildreth, caught down the leg-side for 68, and a typically belligerent Peter Trego, still there on 67.

"So, only one bowling point so far for Sussex and a Somerset declaration on 400 could deny them any more. But would that count as an 'extraordinary declaration', bringing the game into disrepute? Probably, although the final decision rests with the ECB and the umpires."

Essex chase Grace Road win - tea, day four

Leicestershire 251-7 dec & 73-1 dec, Essex 18-0 dec & 129-2

Essex need another 178 from a minimum of 35 overs in the final session to beat Leicestershire after the two captains agreed declarations to set up a positive finish.

Set a target of 307, the visitors lost Dan Lawrence and Tom Westley, but Nick Browne (59) and Ravi Bopara (34) shared an unbroken stand of 73 to tea.

Notts claim fourth batting point

Notts 365 v Warwickshire - lunch, day four

BBC Coventry and Warwickshire's Clive Eakin at Edgbaston:

"It's a battle for bonus points only on the final day in Birmingham where Notts are 364-8 after 107 overs at lunch.

"England batsman James Taylor survived two more chances making five in all on his way to 164 before becoming Keith Barker's fifth victim."

Worcestershire set target for Durham

Worcestershire 217-9d v Durham - lunch, day four

Bottom club Worcestershire have declared at lunch on 217-9 to set Durham a target of 291 in a minimum of 71 overs.

Brett D'Oliveira made 49 from 56 balls and England Lions call-up Ross Whiteley 47 from just 21 balls with eight fours and a six as 175 were added in the morning session.

Leicestershire poised for declaration

Leicestershire 251-7 dec & 73-1, Essex 18-0 dec - lunch, day four

Essex are set for a final day run-chase at Grace Road after the two captains agreed to set up a positive finish to their rain-hit match.

The visitors declared their first innings after five overs and by lunch Leicestershire had extended their lead to 306 for the loss of Ned Eckersley (30).

Somerset press on at Hove

Somerset 239-2 v Sussex 409 - lunch, day four

BBC Somerset's Anthony Gibson at Hove:

"Just about the perfect morning for Somerset, with 125 added without loss to their overnight 114-2, Marcus Trescothick moving as majestically as ever to a third century of the season, and James Hildreth proceeding as fluently as ever to his eighth 50.

"The Sussex bowlers plugged away manfully on an unyielding pitch, but apart from a Trescothick edge which was put down by wicketkeeper Ben Brown off Ashar Zaidi, with no result."

Surrey close on Div Two title

Surrey 480 & 283-7 dec, Lancashire 272 & 79-3 - lunch day four

BBC Radio Lancashire's Scott Read at Old Trafford:

"Ashwell Prince received standing ovation walking out to bat for the last time at Old Trafford and an even louder one shortly after when he edged to first slip of the bowling of Matt Dunn.

"Surrey's celebrations after taking such a key wicket were halted for a few moments as they applauded the South African off the field.

"The Division Two title has arrived at Old Trafford and could well be presented to Surrey later on today."

Hampshire gamble for victory

Hampshire 400-9 dec & forfeit, Yorkshire 97-4 dec & 96-3

BBC Solent's Kevan James at the Ageas Bowl:

"There is all to play for after the captains agreed to 'set up a game' on the last day.

"Whilst spectators here will applaud that decision, I'm not sure what supporters of Sussex, Somerset and Worcestershire will think about it, given the precarious nature of all four sides as regards their first division status for next season.

"Hampshire have gambled by risking a potential seven more points to achieve 16."

Draw on cards at Northampton

Glamorgan 233, Northants 209-7 - lunch, day four

BBC Radio Wales Sport's Nick Webb at Wantage Road:

"Talks between rival captains Alex Wakely and Graham Wagg over the possibility of agreeing a run chase failed to produce a deal, not helped by a late start following overnight rain.

"Adam Rossington's 59 was the best batting effort of the morning before he became a third victim for debutant Dewi Penrhyn Jones, as the teams battled for bonus points."

Canterbury game ends in soggy draw

Kent 67-1 v Gloucestershire

Kent's final Championship game of the summer against Gloucestershire was abandoned as a draw because of a waterlogged ground at Canterbury.

Umpires Paul Baldwin and David Millns called the match off after a brief 10:30 BST inspection.
