  1. Until tomorrow, goodbye

    A really good day of cricket played out in brilliant sunshine across the country.

    It's set to be another belter of day tomorrow, with no rain forecast and a potentially challenging run chase for Durham on the final day against Lancashire at Southport.

    I'll be back at around 10:55 tomorrow for that one and day three action from the four other games. Thanks for joining me today, goodbye for now.

  3. Stumps at Trent Bridge

    Nottinghamshire 401 v Somerset 244-3

    An excellent response from Somerset on day two at Trent Bridge, reducing Nottinghamshire from 311-4 at the start of the day to 401 all out.

    Marcus Trescothick has made batting look simple in reply, finishing the day unbeaten on 117.

  4. Kent in control against Sussex

    Kent 575 v Sussex 69-1

    Sam Northeast's 190 for Kent has them firmly in charge of proceedings against Sussex, though Chris Nash's unbeaten 48 will give his side the belief they can salvage a draw on a good batting track.

    Luke Wells is the other batsman at the crease. He'll resume on seven in the morning after seeing off 49 deliveries in the evening session.

  5. Stumps at Colwyn Bay

    Glamorgan 518 v Derbyshire 177 & 78-1

    Glamorgan are surely easing their way to a win at Colwyn Bay, having taken 11 Derbyshire wickets on the second day.

    The visitors are 78-1 at stumps, which only goes to show how disappointing their performance with the bat was in their first innings.

  6. Close of play

    Surrey 637-7d v Hampshire 73-2

    Hampshire fight back well after losing two early wickets in reply to Surrey's 637-7 declared, but they remain in all kinds of trouble in this relegation battle.

    Earlier, centuries from Ben Foakes and Gareth Batty put Surrey into a commanding position, before Jimmy Adams and Will Smith were dismissed by Mark Footitt to leave the hosts on 5-2.

    Tom Alsop and Ryan McLaren will return to the crease on Tuesday with their side still 564 runs behind.

  7. WICKET Hildreth (b Gurney 5)

    Nottinghamshire 401 v Somerset 234-3

    Nottinghamshire's bowlers are finally getting their reward for a long couple of sessions in the field, with Harry Gurney picking up his second scalp.

    James Hildreth gets it all wrong, leaving a delivery alone which clatters into his stumps.

  8. Durham require 247 to win

    Lancashire 204 & 333 v Durham 291

    Ben Stokes

    Ben Stokes finds his rhythm late on, with Matt Parkinson caught at short leg off the England all-rounder.

    The over before, Nathan Buck smashed Scott Borthwick around the ground for 18 runs to help set Durham a potentially tricky 247 to win.

    That wicket is the last action of the day from Southport, as the umpires call play to a close.

  9. WICKET Kerrigan (c Richardson b Stokes 19)

    Lancashire 204 & 315-9 v Durham 291

    Ben Stokes celebrates his recall to the England Test squad with his second wicket of the day.

    Simon Kerrigan made 19 before he nicked behind to wicketkeeper Michael Richardson. 

  10. WICKET Rogers (c Read b Gurney 48)

    Nottinghamshire 401 v Somerset 224-2

    A wicket at long last at Trent Bridge, though it's probably not the one that Nottinghamshire were hoping for.

    Chris Rogers is the man to go, the veteran Australian batsman edging a Harry Gurney delivery behind to wicketkeeper Chris Read.

    Marcus Trescothick remains unbeaten on 107.

  11. Glamorgan make breakthrough

    Glamorgan 518 v Derbyshire 177 & 61-1 f/o

    Derbyshire's Hamish Rutherford and makeshift opener Harvey Hosein had been rescuing some measure of respectability on a difficult day for their side, but Glamorgan spinner Owen Morgan had other ideas.

    Morgan finds Hosein's edge and the ball is snaffled by wicketkeeper Mark Wallace down the leg side to break a 59-run partnership.

  12. The end is near at Southport

    Lancashire 204 & 304-8 v Durham 291

    A tad dramatic with the headline, perhaps, but I'm sure you know what I mean.

    They're into the last seven overs at Southport, where Simon Kerrigan and Nathan Buck's ninth-wicket partnership is now worth 18 runs.

    It doesn't sound like much, but how important could those runs prove to be on the final day?

  13. 100 for Trescothick

    Nottinghamshire 401 v Somerset 199-1

    Marcus Trescothick

    Marcus Trescothick takes a single off Brett Hutton and brings up a typically aggressive century from 122 balls with 19 fours and one six.

    The former England batsman has reached triple figures 49 times in first-class cricket for Somerset, equaling Harold Gimblett's county record.

  14. Sussex lose early wicket

    Kent 575 v Sussex 37-1

    Sussex made it through the first ten overs unscathed, but Mitchell Claydon strikes for Kent in his first over, bowling Harry Finch for three.

    Chris Nash is leading the way for Sussex with 29 of his team's 37 runs so far.

  15. WICKET Jarvis (b Borthwick 0)

    Lancashire 204 & 289-7 v Durham 291

    Kyle Jarvis is bowled by Durham spinner Scott Borthwick, who is doing his part to end Lancashire's stubborn second-innings resistance.

    Simon Kerrigan picks up a single and then two more runs to take the lead above 200.

  16. Derbyshire following on

    Glamorgan 518 v Derbyshire 177 & 34-0

    With so much going on in Division One, I've not had chance to tell you that Glamorgan did decide to enforce the follow-on against Derbyshire at Colwyn Bay.

    Billy Godleman has not opened the batting as he usually would as he's reportedly been struck down by illness.

    Elsewhere in Division Two, Sussex have seen out the opening ten overs to reach 29-0 in reply to Kent's 575.

  17. WICKET Procter (c Burnham b Borthwick 122)

    Lancashire 204 & 283-7 v Durham 291

    Luke Procter

    A wicket at Southport and it's a big one for Durham.

    Luke Procter's battling innings comes to its conclusion when he clips a Scott Borthwick ball to Jack Burnham at leg slip.

    Minutes later, Tom Moores is run out for 35.

    The lead is currently at 196 - I'm not sure that chase would be as easy as you might think on this track.

  18. WICKET Adams (c Meaker b Footitt 5)

    Surrey 637-7d v Hampshire 5-2

    When I said the last thing Hampshire needed was to lose an early wicket, I hadn't really considered the possibility that they might lose another two overs later.

    Jimmy Adams is Mark Footitt's second victim, caught by Stuart Meaker off the left-arm seamer.

    Surrey had 226 runs more than the hosts by the time they lost their second wicket.

  19. WICKET Smith (b Footitt 0)

    Surrey 637-7d v Hampshire 5-1

    When you've just seen your opponents rack up 637 runs over the best part of two days, the last thing you need is to lose an early wicket.

    Unfortunately for Hampshire, Mark Footitt has just taken one, rearranging Will Smith's stumps before the opener had chance to trouble the scorers.

    Tom Alsop is the next man in - he has a career-best of 82 from 15 first-class innings to date.

  20. Surrey declare on 637

    Surrey 637-7 v Hampshire

    The declaration comes at Southampton, with Ben Foakes ending on a career-best first-class score of 141 not out.

    Gareth Batty also finished unbeaten with 110 to his name, while leg-spinner Mason Crane's arduous spell in the bowling attack comes to an end after 51 overs, with figures of 3-210.
