    Chris Jordan

    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...

  2. Close of play scores

    So, the end of another eventful day up and down the country.

  3. 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.

    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.

  6. 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.

    South Africa 299-6 (50 overs) beat Sri Lanka 203 (41.3 overs) by 96 runs

    Watch South Africa spinner Imran Tahir take four wickets as he helped his side to an opening win in the Champions Trophy against Sri Lanka at The Oval....

  8. Post update

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

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

  16. 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.

    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.

  18. 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.

    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.
