    Middlesex 98 & 205 v Worcestershire 431-5 (dec)

    Already-relegated Worcestershire have ended their season in style with a thumping victory over Middlesex at New Road.

    After declaring on 431-5, with Tom Kohler-Cadmore (130 not out) making his maiden first-class century, Worcestershire's bowlers ran through Middlesex for the second time in the game.

    West Indies quick Shannon Gabriel, Jack Shantry and Ed Barnard did the damage with the ball as the visitors slumped to 133-9.

    A last wicket stand of 72 between John Simpson and Tim Murtagh took Middlesex past 200, but their resistance came to an end when Tom Fell ran out Murtagh.

  2. Yorks build useful lead

    Yorkshire 251 & 214-5 v Sussex 249

    BBC Sussex's Adrian Harms at Headingley:

    "An absorbing battle at Leeds with Yorkshire building a useful lead of 217 with five wickets in hand.

    "Skipper Andrew Gale has led the way with a watchful 65 as the champions strive for a record 11 wins in the season.

    "With the new ball due in just eight overs, Sussex will be desperate for quick wickets, and tomorrow is certain to be a tense day in the battle to avoid relegation."

  3. Rain delay at Chelmsford

    Essex 394 v Lancashire 131-2

    Lancashire have made a strong start in reply to Essex's 394 all out.

    Haseeb Hameed made 63 before he was dismissed by first-innings centurion Jesse Ryder.

    Karl Brown was the other man to go for 39 to Graham Napier.

    The dangerous Ashwell Prince had just arrived at the crease when rain forced the players off with Lancashire 131-2.

  4. Cosgrove battles for Leicestershire

    Leicestershire 329 & 200-4 v Derbyshire 352

    Leicestershire captain Mark Cosgrove is closing in on a century at the County Ground.

    His unbeaten 80 has put Division Two's bottom side in a strong position as they look for just their third win of the season.

    Youngster Aadil Ali also made a half-century but was trapped lbw by Wes Durston for 62.

    Leicestershire currently lead by 177 with six second innings wickets in hand.

  5. Post update

  6. Gloucestershire's Dent reaches 250

    Glamorgan 433 v Gloucestershire 540-8 - tea, day three

    BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Bob Hunt at Bristol:

    "Down at Bristol, Chris Dent is unbeaten on a career best 250 at tea. 

    "He and James Fuller put on 168 for the seventh wicket as Gloucestershire piled on the runs. 

    "At 540 for 8, they are 107 ahead of Glamorgan, and with the pitch becoming flatter and flatter a declaration must be imminent."

  7. Edwards boosts Hampshire's survival hopes

    Notts 340 & 181-8 v Hampshire 326 - tea, day three

    BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle at Trent Bridge:

    "Fidel Edwards picked up three wickets late in the afternoon session as Notts reached tea on 181 for eight in the second innings match against Hampshire at Trent Bridge.

    "The West Indian pace bowler removed Chris Read, Billy Root and Stuart Broad within the space of just seven deliveries to boost the visitors’ chances of securing the win that may keep them in the top flight.

    "With a first innings advantage of only 14 runs, Notts were indebted to Brendan Taylor’s 90 in the face of some hostile bowling from Edwards.

    "The batsman was clearly getting under the skin of Edwards, who was twice punched through the off side for four before Taylor deliberately lifted him up and over the slip cordon for his seventh boundary, to reach 50 from 85 deliveries.

    "Gareth Berg removed both Samit Patel and Riki Wessels before Edwards’ returned to the attack with devastating effect. Having bowled Jake Libby before lunch, the 33-year old Barbadian has now taken ten wickets in the match."

  8. Somerset top order blown away

    Somerset 438 & 36-5 v Warwickshire 324 - tea, day three

    BBC Somerset's Anthony Gibson at Taunton:

    "This topsy-turvey game continues on its merry way, with Somerset taking 47 overs today to take the last three Warwickshire wickets, and then losing their first five wickets in just 15 overs.

    "Their consolation is a first innings lead of 114, so if they can reach three figures, they'll fancy their chances of forcing a win on a pitch taking a spin.

    "One thing we can say is that after that session a draw now looks the least likely outcome."

  9. Curran brothers skittle Northants

    Surrey 410 v Northants 110 & 79-1 - tea, day three

    BBC Radio Northampton's Alex Winter at The Oval:

    “Northamptonshire have been Curran-ed at The Oval, the brothers Tom, 20-year-old, and Sam, just 17, have shared all 10 wickets in Northants’ first innings to fire them out for just 110.

    “We believe it’s the first time brothers have shared all 10 wickets in an innings since WG and EM Grace did so for Gloucestershire against Surrey - also at The Oval - back in 1871.”

  10. Bears batsmen frustrate Somerset

    Somerset 438 v Warwickshire 280-7 - lunch, day three

    BBC Somerset's Anthony Gibson at Taunton:

    "After the excitement of yesterday, nothing but frustration for Somerset this morning as Jeetan Patel and Laurie Evans added exactly 100 runs to take their partnership to 160, a record for the eighth wicket for Warwickshire against Somerset. 

    "It might have been a different story had a combination of Marcus Trescothick and Luke Ronchi been able to take a half-chance offered by Patel in Jack Leach's first over of the morning.

    "But false shots have been few and far between as the batsmen have gone on their largely untroubled way. Warwickshire need only another nine runs to avoid the follow on, and a draw already looks pretty much inevitable."

  11. Notts bid to build lead

    Notts 340 & 55-2 v Hampshire 326 - lunch, day three

    BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle at Trent Bridge:

    "Fidel Edwards claimed his seventh wicket of the match as Nottinghamshire began their second innings midway through the third morning of County Championship match against Hampshire at Trent Bridge.

    "The former West Indian speedster, who took 6- 88 on the first day, flattened Jake Libby’s off stump as the young Cornishman perished cheaply for the second time in the match to leave Notts on 55-2 at lunch, 69 runs ahead.

    "Brendan Taylor reached 1,000 first class runs for the season on his way to an unbeaten 25 at the interval.

    "Hampshire’s last two wickets added a further 28 runs during the opening half hour of the day, before Stuart Broad ended the innings by having Gareth Berg caught down the leg side for 72.

    "Harry Gurney (4-70) had earlier ended a match-changing ninth-wicket partnership of 123 by getting Ryan McLaren to play on for 52."

  12. Anderson claims Lancs best

    Essex 394, Lancashire 23-0 - lunch, day three

    BBC Radio Lancashire's Scott Read at Chelmsford:

    "England paceman James Anderson finished with his best bowling figures for Lancashire, claiming three wickets this morning to end with 7-77. 

    "It's looking increasingly likely that the Red Rose will need to score 300 to secure sufficient bonus points, win the game and hope Surrey fail to beat Northants to clinch the title. 

    "The trophy and champagne are currently here at Chelmsford but could soon be heading to The Oval." 

  13. Dent leads Glos charge

    Glamorgan 433, Gloucestershire 333-6 - lunch, day three

    BBC Radio Wales' Nick Webb at Bristol:

    "Gloucestershire opener Chris Dent batted through another session to reach 144 not out, just 10 short of his Championship best, with his side 100 runs behind Glamorgan at the interval.

    "There was a wicket apiece for seamers Michael Hogan, Craig Meschede and Dewi Penrhyn-Jones as Dent saw his partners come and go at the other end."

  14. Rain forces early lunch at Headingley

    Yorks 135-3, a lead of 138 - lunch, day three

    BBC Sussex's Adrian Harms at Headingley:

    "The forecast showers have duly arrived at Headingley with the umpires deciding on an early lunch at 12:15 BST. 

    "However, Yorkshire have made good progress in the 18 overs possible, adding 80 runs despite losing the wickets of Gary Ballance and Adam Lyth, both of whom played on to Steve Magoffin and Lewis Hatchett respectively. 

    "Andrew Gale has made a rapid 43 in 44 balls, passing 1,000 first-class runs for the season."
