    Jofra Archer

  6. Post update

    My word! What a climax to the action after four days....


    Derbyshire 363 & 190-5 drew with Nottinghamshire 229 & 349

    So so close, yet so far for Derbyshire as the weather beats them to the punch.

    Searching for their first Championship victory since July 2015, the visitors did absolutely everything they could on the final day to claim victory.

    After the morning session was washed out, Tom Taylor bowled brilliantly to dismiss the hosts for 349.

    Set a target of 216 runs from 49 overs, a brilliant 61 from Wayne Madsen and an unbeaten 31 from Gary Wilson took them to the brink of a famous win, but sadly the rain won and saved Notts.


    Northamptonshire (338 & 205-8) beat Durham (166 & 376) by two wickets

    They've done it! Finally....

    Incredible scenes out there in the middle. Nathan Buck and Ben Sanderson scramble through for a bye off Paul Coughlin and Northants have got home to win this game by two wickets with just a ball to spare!

  9. WICKET Cobb (c Pringle b Coughlin) 21

    Northamptonshire (338 & 204-8) need 1 more run to beat Durham (166 & 376)

    You what????

    Still we're not done here. Josh Cobb is out caught at third man trying to finish it off with two balls to spare.

    Northants need one to win off the last two balls but there's only two wickets left now!

  10. WICKET Rossington (c Poynter b Coughlin) 0

    Northamptonshire (338 & 203-7) need 2 more runs to beat Durham (166 & 376)

    And still there's a twist!

    Adam Rossington is caught behind off his first ball and now Northants still need two to win off five balls.

  11. WICKET Hughes (c Cook b McCarthy) 9

    Northamptonshire (338 & 202-6) need 3 more runs to beat Durham (166 & 376)

    My word! Still this game has a twist....

    Chesney Hughes tries to finish it off with another boundary, but skews a shot down to third man and is caught.

    Cobb swings and misses at the next ball and three runs will be required off the final over for Northants.

  12. Four from Hughes!

    Northamptonshire (338 & 202-5) need 3 more runs to beat Durham (166 & 376)

    Barry McCarthy to Chesney Hughes....

    Ramp shot from Hughes finds the boundary for four and now just three runs required!

  13. Post update

    How cruel on Derbyshire!

    It's raining still at Chester-le-Street, but they're playing on....

  14. Heavy rain at Trent Bridge

    Derbyshire (363 & 190-5) need 26 more runs to beat Nottinghamshire (229 & 349)

    The rain is beating down in Nottinghamshire and it's fair to say that we won't be getting back out there at Trent Bridge.

    Such agony for Derbyshire.

  15. Under 10 required....

    Northamptonshire (338 & 196-5) need 9 more runs to beat Durham (166 & 376)

    Chesney Hughes flicks two off his legs form the first ball of Barry McCarthy's next over.

    Nine required now for victory....

  16. Two overs to go...

    Northamptonshire (338 & 194-5) need 11 more runs to beat Durham (166 & 376)

    Chesney Hughes flicks one off his legs towards deep mid-wicket and is inches from being caught.

    Josh Cobb strikes one out towards the boundary and Keaton Jennings fails to cling on to it with his diving stop and knocks it over the rope for four.

    Steady rain starts to fall with the equation down to 11 off 12 balls!

  17. Three overs left....

    Northamptonshire (338 & 179-4) need 18 more runs to beat Durham (166 & 376)

    Just a couple taken off five balls of Barry McCarthy's over with the wicket of Rory Kleinveldt as well.

    But, the last ball is CLUBBED FOR SIX by Josh Cobb and now the equation is down to 18 off 18 balls for Northants.

  18. Rain stops play at Trent Bridge

    Derbyshire (363 & 190-5) need 27 more runs to beat Nottinghamshire (229 & 349)

    It's agony for Derbyshire. Needing just 27 runs from 48 balls and they're taken off for rain at Trent Bridge now.

  19. Derbyshire on course

    Derbyshire (363 & 187-5) need 29 more runs to beat Nottinghamshire (229 & 349)

    Seven runs and a wicket from the first over after the resumption which leaves Derbyshire needing 29 runs off eight overs at Trent Bridge.

  20. WICKET Kleinveldt (c Collingwood b McCarthy) 9

    Northamptonshire (338 & 179-5) need 26 more runs to beat Durham (166 & 376)

    Another twist in this one!

    Rory Kleinveldt goes down the ground but can't clear the fence. Paul Collingwood takes the catch at long-on.

    Next ball, Josh Cobb is dropped by Michael Richardson in the deep.

    Drama to the last here!
