    And there we have, our final match is done for the day!

    Moeen Ali finishes on 136 not out from 144 deliveries, including 17 fours and four sixes.

  4. Majestic Moeen

    Worcestershire 411 & 194-4 v Gloucestershire 380 & 382-7d

    The game at Bristol may well be trundling to an almost certain draw, but Moeen Ali's having some fun.

    He smashes spinner Jack Taylor for successive sixes to take his personal tally to 129.

    Surrey draw with Somerset

    Thanks for joining us, Ollie!


    Somerset 353 & 122-4 v Surrey 463 & 181-8d

    Hands are shaken, Somerset survive.

    James Hildreth (40 not out) and Peter Trego (34 not out) share 60 for the fifth wicket to ensure, in the end, Surrey weren't able to seriously threaten a positive result.

  7. Post update

    Fiften overs left in Bristol, nine overs left at The Oval. Surrey and Gloucestershire both need six wickets for victory. Somerset and Worcestershire both just desperate to survive, but certainly looking strong favourites to do just that.

    Somerset 353 & 95-4 v Surrey 463 & 181-8d

    Time's ticking though, Alex. Eleven overs remain.


    Kent 264 & 85-2 v Leicestershire 401-9d

    Another match, another draw. We're ticking them off slowly.

  10. Get Involved via #bbccricket

    Somerset 353 & 79-4 v Surrey 463 & 181-8d

    Surrey fans aren't giving up hope! There are 13 overs left for Somerset to ride out.

  11. Moeen makes 100

    Worcestershire 411 & 156-4 v Gloucestershire 380 & 382-7d

    Well played, Moeen Ali. Always super to see an England batsman find some form.

    His century arrives from 106 deliveries, and featured 15 fours and two sixes.

    Time to call it off now?

  12. WICKET Van der Merwe (b Ansari) 2

    Somerset 353 & 62-4 v Surrey 463 & 181-8d

    Somerset are just dangling that carrot ever so slightly. Roelef van der Merwe is Zafar Ansari's third victim of the evening - and leaves the visitors 16 overs to survive with six wickets left.

  13. Moeen moves into the nineties

    Worcestershire 411 & 151-4 v Gloucestershire 380 & 382-7d

    Moeen Ali

    With all three matches labouring towards draws, all eyes remain fixed upon Moeen Ali.

    He moves on to 95.

  14. WICKET Rogers (b Ansari) 24

    Somerset 353 & 54-3 v Surrey 463 & 181-8d

    Oh Chris, what have you done?

    Former Australia opener Chris Rogers has been bowled by Zafar Ansari to leave Somerset trailing by 238 runs, with seven wickets and 20 overs remaining.

  15. Post update

    You can't imagine the other three games will be too far behind The Oval.

    All that said, Moeen Ali has progressed to 86 not out, so we could be sticking around for the England all-rounder's century...


    Yorkshire 379 & 73-2 v Warwickshire 443-9d

    Ian Bell bowling off spin appears to have been the final straw. The two captains shake on it and it's all over at Edgbaston.

  17. Chuck Ian Bell the ball!

    Yorkshire 379 & 73-2 v Warwickshire 443-9d

  18. WICKET Kohler-Cadmore (c Shaw b Norwell) 25

    Worcestershire 411 & 123-4 v Gloucestershire 380 & 382-7d

    I'm claiming the assist for this one. Tom Kohler-Cadmore is the man to go for 25, bringing Ross Whiteley to the crease.

    Moeen Ali is still chugging along, he's now on to 76 from 82 deliveries.

  19. Draws all round?

    We've not had a wicket for nearly 15 minutes and it's all gone rather quiet. Draws nailed on?

    (Cue a collapse somewhere...)
