  1. "It's a disappointing result"

    Lancashire beat Hampshire by an innings and 94 runs

    Hampshire captain James Vince has been speaking to BBC Solent Sport following his side's innings defeat by Lancashire at Old Trafford:

    "The whole of day one put us on the back foot and it was always going to be hard to claw our way back into the game. We showed glimpses of good cricket but couldn't string it together. It's a disappointing result. 

    "Everything fell into place for Lancashire. They've bowled well for the whole game and asked questions and haven't given us anything to work with."

  2. Last hour called at Headingley

    Yorkshire 557-6 dec v Surrey 330 & 194-8

    We're into the last hour which means there are 16 overs left for Surrey to survive or Yorkshire to pick up two wickets.

    Which way is this one going to swing? Ben Foakes is still there on 16, with Ravi Rampaul just joining him at the crease.


    Leicestershire 332 & 132-6 v Northants 151 & 30-1

    And that is indeed it for the match at Grace Road. 

    Leicestershire take 11 points while Northants earn eight.

  4. WICKET Batty (c Bairstow b Patterson 0)

    Yorkshire 557-6 dec v Surrey 330 & 194-8

    Steven Patterson has turned the tide of the match at Headingley! The big paceman claims his second wicket in as many overs as he tempts Surrey skipper Gareth Batty to edge behind.

    Yorkshire are strong favourites now with two wickets needed in a minimum of 11.5 overs.

  5. Bad light stops play at Grace Road

    Leicestershire 332 & 132-6 v Northants 151 & 30-1

  6. Edgbaston pitch reported

    Umpires concerned about surface

    BBC WM's Richard Wilford has more details:

    "After two days' play were washed out the big story at Edgbaston is that umpires Ian Gould and Neil Mallender have reported their concerns about the pitch.

    "Both teams have given evidence to Cricket Liaison Officer Tony Pigott who will prepare a report for the ECB.

    "Bears' director of cricket Dougie Brown told BBC WM - 'Were there cracks? Yes. Was it dangerous? No it wasn't in our opinion.'"


    Derbyshire draw with Sussex

    That's your lot between Derbyshire and Sussex. The rain returned just at the wrong time for Sussex with Derbyshire having just lost two quick wickets.

    The match will be remembered for Ed Joyce's 250.

  8. WICKET T Curran (b Patterson 22)

    Yorkshire 557-6 dec v Surrey 330 & 194-7

    Oh, things are now very interesting at Headingley. Tom Curran is bowled by Steven Patterson with his first ball after returning to the attack.

    Yorkshire need three wickets in a minimum of 13.5 overs.

    Surrey skipper Gareth Batty is the new man in - you can't see him giving his wicket away.

  9. Minimum of 15 overs left at Headingley

    Yorkshire 557-6 dec v Surrey 330 & 192-6

    Yorkshire's victory bid is being thwarted by Surrey batsmen Ben Foakes and Tom Curran.

    The pair have put on 41 for the seventh wicket, and time is running out for Yorkshire to get the remaining four wickets.

  10. WICKET Marshall (c Rouse b Hunn 20)

    Kent 478-8 dec v Gloucestershire 337 & 122-5

    We could have a bit of late drama on our hands at Canterbury as Hamish Marshall nicks Matt Hunn behind for 20.

    Kent need five more wickets with 25 overs left in the day - but they may have to bat again as Gloucestershire only trail by 19.

  11. All over at Derby?

    Derbyshire 191 & 92-2 v Sussex 468-5 dec

    BBC Radio Derby's Dave Fletcher has some news from Derby...

  13. 10 wickets in 24 overs?

    Leicestershire 332 & 132-6 dec v Northants 151 & 1-1

    Play is finally under way at Grace Road with Leicestershire needing 10 Northants wickets and quickly.

    Make that nine as Ben Duckett is bowled by Clint McKay for nought.

  14. 'A real shame'

    Middlesex 203-3 v Nottinghamshire 354 - Match drawn

    Following the abandoned match at Lord's between Middlesex and Nottinghamshire following two days of rain, it appears both sides were a bit frustrated.

    Mick Newell, Nottinghamshire's director of cricket said: "It's a real shame to lose two full days of cricket, although I'm not sure where the game was going for us. We'll take the points and move on."

    Toby Roland-Jones, the Middlesex seamer, who took 5-61 believed a resumption in play would have failed to get the game moving as "it was a steady wicket on which to bat so it would have been difficult for the bowlers."

  15. Play resumes at Headingley

    Yorkshire 557-6 dec v Surrey 330 & 172-6

    Four overs have been lost as the players make their way out. How crucial will that short rain delay be in Yorkshire's bid for victory?

    There are 21.4 overs left.

  16. Post update

    Derbyshire 191 & 81-2 v Sussex 468-5 dec

    Make that two quick wickets at Derby. Hamish Rutherford goes without scoring, caught by Harry Finch off Stu Whittingham.

  17. Godleman gone

    Derbyshire 191 & 79-1 v Sussex 468-5 dec

    Is there a late twist at Derby?

  18. A look at Division Two

    Both games appear to be heading towards draws.

    At Canterbury, Gloucestershire are 102-3 and trail Kent by 39 runs. There are 30 overs left there.

    In Derby, Derbyshire have moved to 74-0 against Sussex, with around 28 overs remaining in the day for the visitors to find 10 wickets. Appears unlikely.

  19. Rain stops play at Headingley

    Yorkshire 557-6 dec v Surrey 330 & 172-6

    Surrey's task to save the game is made a little easier as a rain shower arrives forcing the players to leave the field.

    Don't think they'll be off for too long though.

    25.4 overs are left in the day.

  20. 27 overs - four wickets needed

    Yorkshire 557-6 dec v Surrey 330 & 171-6

    Ben Foakes and Tom Curran are shoring up the Surrey innings at Headingley.

    Joe Root is now into his 11th over with figures of 2-22.
