  9. Post update

    So, around about six overs still to bowl at Trent Bridge in the only game still going today.

    As we wait for stumps there, we'll bring you up to speed with some of the other headlines from today.

  10. Stumps at Chester-le-Street

    Durham 166 v Northamptonshire 59-3

    32 overs have been lost in this Division Two match as stumps is called with light too poor for play to resume.

    It was certainly the visitors' day at Chester-le-Street after a career-best 6-34 from Nathan Buck helped Northants bowled Durham out for just 166.

    Despite losing three wickets, the away side remain firmly in control of the match.

  11. Close of play at Headingley

    Yorkshire 93-2 v Lancashire 123

    As predicted a short while ago, they've called it quits for the day at Headingley.

    Well and truly Yorkshire's day and another one to remember for Ben Coad.

    The White Rose will resume tomorrow just 30 runs behind after an eventful first day.

  12. Bad light stops play at Chester-le-Street

    Durham 166 v Northamptonshire 59-3

    Durham were desperate to stay out there having taken three early wickets but the umpires drag the players off for bad light.

    That might well be it for the day at Chester-le-Street but we'll have to wait for official confirmation.

  13. Still going in Division Two....

    It might have all ground to a halt in Division One's action, but they're still going in two Division Two games....

    Derbyshire have just lost a first wicket against Nottinghamshire in their reply to 229. Louis Reece is caught at first slip off Luke Wood's bowling for 17 to leave them 25-1.

    Meanwhile at Chester-le-Street, Northamptonshire have progressed to 56-3 now in response to Durham's 166.

  14. No result at Edgbaston

    As predicted, the weather's beaten them in Birmingham between Australia and New Zealand.

    No result in that game between the other two sides in England's group so the points are shared.

    New Zealand face England in Cardiff on Tuesday.

  15. Rain stops play at Headingley

    Yorkshire 93-2 v Lancashire 123

    Light rain becomes slightly heavier rain up in Leeds and the umpires take the players off the field with 8.2 overs still to be bowled in the day.

    Yorkshire just 30 runs behind after making a cracking start to the day that saw the morning session lost to the elements.

    Doesn't look like they'll get back on for any more action....

  16. Post update

    New Zealand 291 (45 overs) v Australia 53-3 (9 overs)

    Talking of that Champions Trophy match, they may not get a result at Edgbaston after a series of rain breaks.

    Australia were set a revised target of 235 off 33 overs before they were halted at 53-3 off nine.

    They need to get back out there at 18:50 BST to have time to complete a game of any description, but it looks like the elements may beat them and leave it as a no result.

    Follow the latest here.

  18. Back on again at Trent Bridge

    Nottinghamshire 229 v Derbyshire 11-0

    Might be stumps already in a few games, but they're back out there following a brief rain delay at Trent Bridge...

  19. Close of play at Ageas Bowl

    Hampshire 294-3 v Warwickshire

    Stumps drawn in Southampton at the end of a day Jimmy Adams and Sean Ervine won't forget in a hurry.

    They finish unbeaten on 104 and 160 respectively and their fourth-wicket partnership will resume tomorrow morning on 263 runs.

    Quite some recovery from 31-3 at 11:45 BST.

  20. Another one down for Northants

    Durham 166 v Northamptonshire 28-3

    Alex Winter

    BBC Radio Northampton sport at Chester-le-Street

    A great performance with the ball for Northants, just what Alex Wakely would have wanted.

    Nathan Buck the star with 6-34, a first-class best for him. It was a consistent display for the most part from Northants with all the bowlers getting on the board.

    But wickets are continuing to tumble and Northants are in a fight to get to the close in some decent shape.

    Rob Keogh the latest to succumb to Barry McCarthy for just two.

    The forecast tomorrow is good and potentially a much better day to bat - how many wickets can they take to day two?
