Don't despair.

We may be done for the day, but we'll be back for all the action from day three from 10:45 BST on Sunday.

Thanks for being with us throughout this second day, we'll do it all over again in the morning...

Close of play scores

Close of play at Headingley

Yorkshire 273 v Lancashire 123 & 141-4

That's your lot for the second day in Leeds. Another one full of incident with 12 wickets falling again.

Lancashire show some resistance late in the day courtesy of this fifth-wicket partnership between Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Dane Vilas.

They're now just nine runs behind, but with only six second-innings wickets in hand.

Yorkshire 273 v Lancashire 123 & 132-4

Into the last couple of overs of the day at Headingley.

Lancashire are closing in on parity as a 50 partnership is recorded between Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Dane Vilas.

Close of play at Trent Bridge

Notinghamshire 229 & 67-2 v Derbyshire 363

All over for the day in the East Midlands derby.

Nottinghamshire close it still 67 runs behind Derbyshire with eight wickets in hand. An intriguingly poised contest after two days in Division Two.

Right, stumps in two of our Division One matches, but still seven overs to be bowled up at Headingley before the close this evening....

Close of play at Lord's

Middlesex 42-0 v Somerset 443-9 dec

Stumps drawn on the second day at Lord's where there's been little in the bowlers' favour.

Just the four wickets to fall all day as Somerset had centurion makers in Dean Elgar and Lewis Gregory. Nick Compton and Nick Gubbins see off 22 overs before the close for the champions without being separated.

WICKET Jennings (st Rossington b Keogh) 27

Durham 166 & 69-1 v Northants 338

Not the end to the day Keaton Jennings would have wanted.

The Durham and England opener charges down the pitch to Rob Keogh, misses the flight of the ball, and is easily stumped by Adam Rossington.

The hosts still trail by 103 runs as nightwatchman Barry McCarthy comes to the crease looking to block out the final three overs of the day.

Close of play at Hove

Sussex 579-8 dec v Worcestershire 139-0

And that's the end of the day down at Hove where Worcestershire have continued to show how few demons are in the pitch.

Captain Daryl Mitchell has had a couple of lives, but will resume unbeaten on 85 in the morning.

Brett D'Oliveira is 43 not out at the other end.

WICKET Pujara (c Smit b Taylor) 13

Nottinghamshire 229 & 35-2 v Derbyshire 363

Cheteshwar Pujara falls in identical fashion to Jake Libby, edging the ball to wicketkeeper Daryn Smith off Tom Taylor.

Division Two leaders Nottinghamshire are in serious danger of falling apart against Derbyshire at Trent Bridge.

Good reply from Worcestershire

Sussex 579-8 dec v Worcestershire 139-0

Adrian Harms

Sports reporter, BBC Sussex at Hove

Whilst Worcestershire have made a solid start, Sussex haven't helped their own cause by dropping both openers. Chris Jordan and Michael Burgess spilled chances in the slips and behind the wicket.

The Sussex bowling has in general been too short and with five right-arm seamers in the attack, they may wish they had selected a spinner to vary the attack.

Daryl Mitchell (85 not out) has however made the most of being dropped on 14 and played conservatively without looking in difficulty.

BBC Sport
Early evening at Hove

South Africa make winning start

South Africa 299-6 (50 overs) v Sri Lanka 203 (41.3 overs)

At the Champions Trophy, South Africa have beaten Sri Lanka by 96 runs at The Oval.

Imran Tahir helped turn that game around for the Proteas after Sri Lanka looked well set early in the run-chase.

He finished with 4-27 off his nine overs.

Libby falls cheaply

Nottinghamshire 229 & 24-1 v Derbyshire 363

Conor McKerr strikes first for Derbyshire as Jake Libby wafts at a wide ball and is caught behind for 15.

Cheteshwar Pujara strides to the crease with 10 overs left in the day.

Close of play at Ageas Bowl

Hampshire 515 v Warwickshire 49-6

All done for the day and Hampshire have made the perfect conclusion to the second day with the wicket of Andy Umeed.

Mason Crane grabs a second wicket in as many overs as he has the opener caught behind for 14.

Warwickshire go off the field in deep, deep trouble.

WICKET Croft (c Lyth b Sidebottom) 27

Lancashire 123 & 81-4 v Yorkshire 273

Steven Croft made an good 27 but Adam Lyth takes a good catch at second slip to give Ryan Sidebottom his first wicket in the innings.

Yorkshire may well have started to think they could wrap up victory this evening, there are still 15 overs remaining in the day.

Notts second innings under way

Nottinghamshire 229 & 8-0 v Derbyshire 363

Derbyshire's fine first innings is brought to an end as Harry Gurney (3-55) has Tom Taylor caught for 32 to bowl the visitors out for 363 at Trent Bridge.

Nottinghamshire trail by 134 runs as openers Steven Mullaney and Jake Libby are left to face 14 overs this evening.

WICKET Clarke (lbw b Crane) 20

Hampshire 515 v Warwickshire 46-5

Hampshire well and truly in the driving seat now towards the close of the second day at the Ageas Bowl.

Mason Crane forces a mistake out of Rikki Clarke who tries to sweep the leg spinner but misses the ball and is trapped leg before.

Sunny Singh is out there as a night-watchman.

Watchful reply by champions

Middlesex 29-0 v Somerset 443-9 dec

The two Nicks for Middlesex of Gubbins and Compton at the top of their order have made a watchful start to proceedings this evening at Lord's.

They've negotiated 14 overs so far of the new ball without alarm.

Lions make it 2-0

England Lions 349-7 (50 overs) v South Africa A 205 (41.3 overs)

Tom Curran

All over at Northampton where England Lions have won again against South Africa A to go 2-0 up in their three-match one-day series.

A win by 144 runs for James Vince's side.

Liam Livingstone crashed 129 off 83 balls earlier, but Liam Dawson has claimed 4-41 with the ball.

England Champions Trophy squad auditionees Steven Finn (2-49) and Tom Curran (1-30) were also in the wickets.

The two sides play again at the same venue on Monday.

Bears dig in

Hampshire 515 v Warwickshire 37-4

Just six overs left in the day at the Ageas Bowl by contrast.

Mason Crane is on for the hosts to try and snare another wicket with his leg spin. Andy Umeed (12 not out off 71 balls) is trying his best to mount a rearguard for the visitors.

...Clearly the players at Headingley don't want to get home and watch the Champions League final this evening, which incidentally you can follow all the build-up for in Cardiff right here on BBC Sport with Tom Rostance and co.

WICKET Procter (c Bresnan b Brooks) 23

Lancashire 123 & 61-3 v Yorkshire 273

Luke Procter clearly heard my call for the players to get a move on as he swings at a wide ball from Jack Brooks and send the ball into the safe hands of Tim Bresnan at first slip.

Lancashire still trail by 89 runs with seven second-innings wickets remaining.

In for a late one at Headingley

Yorkshire 273 v Lancashire 123 & 59-2

We're approaching 18:00 BST, but they won't be finishing any time soon in Leeds as there's still 21 overs to be bowled in the day.

Now I know they lost time there yesterday and added eight overs on to the day's allocation, but that is still a long way behind the rate.

Call me cantankerous if you wish, but get a move on!

Derbyshire build big lead

Nottinghamshire 229 v Derbyshire 346-9

Dave Bracegirdle

BBC Radio Nottingham commentator at Trent Bridge

Derbyshire are building a sizeable advantage and are now 117 runs ahead at 346-9.

Notts have maximum bowling points, but the visitors are taking every run to try and get to 350 and a fourth batting point.

What a glorious picture that is from Alex Winter at Chester-le-street.

It looks like a lovely evening up in the north east....

Durham get their act together

Durham 166 & 8-0 v Northamptonshire 338

Alex Winter

BBC Radio Northampton sport

BBC Sport

Durham finally got their act together with the ball after tea to take 5 for 11 in 35 balls with the second new ball.

It prevented Northants picking up a fourth batting point and limited the deficit to 172 - a good lead but it was looking like Northants would march over 200 ahead.

The hosts have regained a little momentum and on a wicket that proved pretty flat for much of the afternoon, Durham will sense a chance to get back into the match. But it's going to need a determined effort in the second innings.

It's actually worked out quite well for Northants because with 22 overs to bowl at Durham tonight, they can have a full go before the close and still have a relatively fresh ball to use in the morning.

Tahir on song for Proteas

South Africa 299-6 (50 overs) v Sri Lanka 158-6 (30.4 overs)

At the Champions Trophy, South Africa have well and truly turned the screw on Sri Lanka at The Oval.

Imran Tahir's been the chief tormentor to put the Proteas on top with three wickets in his seven overs so far.

He's just dismissed Asela Gunaratne to leave Sri Lanka in trouble at 155-6 chasing 300.

Earlier he accounted for Upul Tharanga caught on the boundary and you can see below how much he enjoyed it...

WICKET Ambrose (b Holland) 3

Hampshire 515 v Warwickshire 22-4

Another wicket down at the Ageas Bowl and this time it's a first first-class scalp for Hampshire seamer Ian Holland.

Tim Ambrose is beaten all up and bowled by the right-armer at the end of his second over.

Out comes Rikki Clarke with a big job to do for his side.

Solid Worcestershire reply

Sussex 579-8 dec v Worcestershire 59-0

Adrian Harms

Sports reporter, BBC Sussex at Hove

Hold your catches win your matches is the old cricket saying, and it's not too often Chris Jordan is the culprit, but he puts down Daryl Mitchell on 14, a low chance to his left at first slip off the bowling of Jofra Archer.

Apart from that, the Worcestershire openers have looked comfortable, the Sussex bowlers guilty of bowling too short and not making the batsman play often enough.

BBC Sport
Beautiful late afternoon at Hove

'What a moment'

Hampshire 515 v Warwickshire 19-3

Andrew Moon

BBC Radio Solent at Ageas Bowl

What a moment for Matt Salisbury! His first delivery as a Hampshire player was a beauty and dismisses Sam Hain caught behind and he then removes Ian Bell lbw.

Warwickshire now in trouble on a slow flat pitch but on which run scoring is difficult.

WICKET Bell (lbw b Salisbury) 4

Hampshire 515 v Warwickshire 19-3

Well, this has to go down as one of the best-written scripts of all time!

Matt Salisbury has two wickets in his first three balls as a Hampshire player and he's now accounted for Warwickshire skipper Ian Bell leg before.

All sorts of trouble now for the Bears with Jonathan Trott also struggling with an injury and currently unable to bat.

WICKET Hain (c McManus b Salisbury) 1

Hampshire 515 v Warwickshire 15-2

My word what a way to make your first-class debut for Hampshire by Matt Salisbury.

The former Essex seamer takes a wicket with his first ball in home colours as he finds the outside edge of Sam Hain's bat and Lewis McManus takes the catch.

Skipper Ian Bell comes out to the crease with his side in all sorts of bother.

WICKET Holden (c Poynter b Collingwood) 124

Durham 166 v Northamptonshire 338

Max Holden's excellent, if not slightly lucky innings, is ended as he edges Paul Collingwood behind.

Paul Coughlin then dismisses Nathan Buck for a single before Collingwood bowls Ben Sanderson for a duck to bring an end to Northants' innings on 338, a lead of 172 runs.

Declaration for Somerset

Middlesex v Somerset 443-9 dec

Somerset's big hitting down the order comes to an end as Jamie Overton is caught at long-on for 37.

The visitors call a conclusion to their innings on 443-9, quite some recovery from 80-5 yesterday.

WICKET Hameed (lbw b Coad) 10

Yorkshire 273 v Lancashire 123 & 33-2

Wicket time again up at Headingley for Yorkshire and that man Ben Coad.

England opener Haseeb Hameed goes cheaply again as he's trapped leg before and Lancashire are a long way behind still after a couple of early losses in their second innings.

Champions Trophy update

South Africa 299-6 (50 overs) v Sri Lanka 132-4 (22 overs)

In the Champions Trophy, Sri Lanka are currently 132-4 after 22 overs chasing 300 to win against South Africa.

Sri Lanka are still up with the required rate, but South Africa took two quick wickets to peg them back including a superb run out from AB de Villiers and Imran Tahir trapping Chamara Kapugedera leg before.

You can see how much he celebrated that above.

WICKET Westwood (run out) 2

Hampshire 515 v Warwickshire 13-1

Disaster zone for Warwickshire at the top of their first innings.

Confusion over a quick single between Andy Umeed and Ian Westwood sees the latter run out as Michael Carberry swooped in on the ball sharpish and Kyle Abbott was on hand to remove the bails at the bowler's end.

Early breakthrough for Hampshire with Sam Hain striding to the middle.

Division Two update

Paul Coughlin has grabbed two wickets in three balls for Durham but Max Holden's unbeaten century has helped Northamptonshire move on to 327-7.

On a day where there seems to have been plenty of dropped catches, Daryl Mitchell is the latest person to be given an extra life as Sussex all-rounder Chris Jordan puts down the ball with Worcestershire now 32-0.

And, Billy Goodleman's brilliant innings has come to an end for Derbyshire as Luke Wood dismisses him for 121 with the visitors now 79 runs ahead of Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.
