  3. Close of play

    Durham 223-4 & 256 v Somerset 179

    Well batted Keaton Jennings.

    He goes into the pavilion on 105 not out, while captain Paul Collingwood is 39 not out.

  4. Get Involved at #bbccricket


    Durham 205-4 & 256 v Somerset 179

    Remarkable! Durham opener Keaton Jennings has his second century of the match.

    He brings it up with a four off Roelof van der Merwe.

    It came off 163 balls with 15 fours.

    He'll sleep well tonight I'm sure.

  6. Doing it in singles

    Durham 201-4 & 256 v Somerset 179

    Keaton Jennings is only dealing in singles at the moment.

    He moves to 96 not out.

    Three overs left at Chester-le-Street.

  7. Jennings approaching second 100

    Durham 193-4 & 256 v Somerset 179

    If Keaton Jennings does reach three figures, he'll join an illustrious club of Durham batsmen to score two centuries in the same match.

    The 23-year-old is just seven runs away.

  8. Time for a Jennings ton?

    Durham 185-4 & 256 v Somerset 179

    Durham opener Keaton Jennings is just 10 runs away from reaching his second hundred of the match.

    There are a minimum of eight overs left at Chester-le-Street - but the light is closing in.

    Can he do it?

  9. Close of play

    Surrey 14-0 & 225 v Nottinghamshire 446

    ...and here it is. Play is off for the day between Notts and Surrey.

  10. Rain stops play

    Surrey 14-0 & 225 v Nottinghamshire 446

    We could have some news from Trent Bridge for you very shortly...

  11. 'A day of two halves'

    Essex 287-6 v Gloucestershire 262

    BBC Essex's Dick Davies at Chelmsford:

    "To borrow a phrase from another activity, this was in so many respects a day of two halves.

    "Essex batted beautifully in ideal conditions in a busy morning session - during which the visitors' seamers bowled 33 overs - as Alastair Cook and Tom Westley played in their contrasting styles to reach 164 -1 at lunch. 

    "They had put on 222 runs together before Cook was lbw to Jack Taylor's seventh delivery of the match for a typical 105, his 52nd first-class century and Westley went soon after for 121.

    "As the weather deteriorated, so did Essex's dominance and they finished in a useful, but not commanding, position 25 runs ahead with four wickets in hand."

  12. All eyes on Chester-le-Street

    Durham 154-4 & 256 v Somerset 179

    So, once again we've only got action between Durham and Somerset.

    Durham have just lost their fourth wicket - Michael Richardson was lbw to Lewis Gregory for nought.

    Skipper and former England batsman Paul Collingwood comes in at six.

    They may not be on for too much longer though...

  13. Bad light stops play

    Surrey 14-0 & 225 v Nottinghamshire 446

    They're off again at Trent Bridge.

  14. Post update

    Durham 149-3 & 256 v Somerset 179

    Momentous moment in the north-east! The gloom is moving north.

  15. Jennings in reach of second ton

    Durham 149-3 & 256 v Somerset 179

    Jack Burnham is out at Chester-le-Street. However, Keaton Jennings is approaching his second hundred of the match.

    The opener is 72 not out.

  16. Stumps at Chelmsford

    Essex 287-6 v Gloucestershire 262

    Alastair Cook Tom Westley

    The umpires have also decided to call things off at Chelmsford.

    Gloucestershire produced a fine fightback in the afternoon taking 5-53 including Alastair Cook for 105 and Tom Westley for 121.

    We go again on Tuesday.

  17. Close of play

    Northants 481-7 v Sussex

    Play has been called off for the day at Wantage Road.

    Ben Duckett will resume day three on 282 not out.

    Unless Northants declare overnight - seems unlikely though!

  18. Notts enforce the follow-on

    Surrey 6-0 & 225 v Nottinghamshire 446

    Notts skipper Chris Read has indeed asked Surrey to bat again after conceding that first-innings deficit of 221.

    I've never been to Chester-le-Street - sounds like I would hear a few interesting things in the stands when I do eventually make it up there.

  20. Borthwick gone

    Durham 135-2 & 256 v Somerset 179

    Wicket at Chester-le-Street too - Scott Borthwick is dismissed by Tim Groenewald.

    Durham are still well on top though.
