  1. Until tomorrow

    Well, that was quite a day.

    Wickets tumbling in Division One, a few nice centuries in Division Two, and an entertaining T20 Blast game just for good measure.

    We'll be back tomorrow for the second day's play. Hopefully you can join us then.

    Until the morning, goodbye.

  2. Stumps, at last

    Warwickshire 126 & 12-0 v Middlesex 161

    It turns out there wasn't time for a 21st wicket.

    Still, the fans at Lord's can't complain they've not been entertained today, and the home fans will be slightly the happier as their side hold a slender advantage going into day two.

  3. And there was one

    Warwickshire 126 & 1-0 v Middlesex 161

    Just one game remains to be completed today, with three overs left to play at Lord's.

    Surely there's not time for the 21st wicket of the day, is there?

  4. Hants on top against rivals Lancs

    Lancashire 149 v Hampshire 147-5

    It's advantage Hampshire at stumps in the battle of second against third in the County Championship.

    Alex Davies top-scored for second-placed Lancashire with 36, with not a bad set of figures to be seen from the Hampshire bowling attack as the visitors were all out for 149.

    The hosts stumbled early in their response, but 40 from James Vince, and a 28-run sixth-wicket partnership between Liam Dawson and Ian Holland have them just three runs short of taking the lead.

  5. Stumps at Scarborough

    Yorkshire 113 v Essex 188-8

    Essex safely see their way through to stumps at Scarborough, with Ryan ten Doeschate (61) and Mohammad Amir (11) adding a very useful 24 runs for the ninth wicket.

    Yorkshire will need to break that partnership quickly in the morning if they are to have realistic hopes of getting anything out of the game.

  6. WICKET Franklin (c Trott b Patel) 55

    Warwickshire 126 v Middlesex 161

    Twenty wickets have fallen in a day at Lord's.

    James Franklin is the last man out as Middlesex fail to pick up a batting point, caught by Jonathan Trott at slip after Jeetan Patel found the edge.

    The defending champions have a lead, but it's been a pretty heroic effort from Warwickshire to limit the damage this afternoon.

  7. Sidebottom strike twice in an over

    Warwickshire 126 v Middlesex 160-9

    Ryan Sidebottom has struck twice in an over late on as the Australian bowls Tom Helm for two and Tim Murtagh for four.

    Middlesex have a slender lead of just 34 runs at Lord's after 19 wickets having fallen on day one and there are still seven overs left in the day!

  8. Nash leads Sussex response

    Sussex 342-7 v Worcestershire

    From 49-3 to 342-7, Sussex can be pretty pleased with their day's work.

    Chris Nash led the fightback, scoring 118 before being trapped lbw by Joe Leach.

  9. WICKET Harmer (c Lyth b Brooks) 7

    Yorkshire 113 v Essex 165-8

    Yorkshire continue to claw their way back into the game at Scarborough, as Jack Brooks picks up his third wicket of the innings.

    Adam Lyth, one of the sharpest fielders in English domestic cricket, takes the catch at slip to remove Simon Harmer.

    Essex are still on top, but I imagine they'd have liked a much bigger lead than this after their bowling masterclass earlier.

  10. WICKET Bailey (c Livingstone b Parkinson) 22

    Lancashire 149 v Hampshire 119-5

    Matt Parkinson was out for a golden duck with the bat earlier, but the young Lancashire leg-spinner makes an impact in his first over with the ball in hand.

    Australian George Bailey is Parkinson's 11th victim in first-class cricket, edging the ball to Liam Livingstone at first slip.

  11. Bad light stops play at Derby

    Derbyshire 220 v Nottinghamshire 93-2

    A good day for Division Two leaders Nottinghamshire against Derbyshire is ended early by fading light.

    The visitors will resume on day two trailing by only 127 runs, with Steven Mullaney unbeaten on 35 alongside Samit Patel, who has 21.

  12. Steel unbeaten as Durham take charge

    Durham 323-4 v Leicestershire

    What a day it's been for Cameron Steel.

    The Durham batsman is unbeaten on a career-best 145, helping Durham to a commanding position of 323-4 at stumps.

  13. Sussex vindicate captain's call

    Sussex 334-6 v Worcestershire

    Adrian Harms

    Sports reporter, BBC Sussex

    Important half-century from Chris Jordan consolidating the earlier good work from Luke Wells and centurion Chris Nash.

    Having been 49-3 Sussex have vindicated the decision by skipper Ben Brown to bat first and are in a powerful position with five overs remaining in the day.

  14. Stumps at Northants

    Northamptonshire 343 v Gloucestershire

    The first of today's games comes to an end, and Gloucestershire will probably be pretty pleased with how things stand at Northampton.

    Northants looked set for a big total, cruising at 153-1, but three wickets for Liam Norwell led the visitors' fightback.

  15. WICKET Vince (c Parry b Jarvis) 40

    Lancashire 149 v Hampshire 93-4

    A fourth wicket falls, but for the first time Lancashire keeper Alex Davies isn't in on the action.

    James Vince scored quickly for Hampshire to make 40 from 46 balls, before miscuing a Kyle Jarvis delivery to Stephen Parry at mid-wicket.

    The hosts still have work to do to surpass Lancashire's total on a pitch which seems to be giving plenty of help to the bowlers.

  16. Middlesex take slender lead

    Warwickshire 126 v Middlesex 130-6

    Middlesex just edge in front of Warwickshire's total of 126, with Ryan Higgins seemingly back to his best having momentarily retired hurt earlier on.

    Higgins has 30, while James Franklin is scoring freely with 39 from 44 deliveries.

    Warwickshire, winless in first-class cricket this season, have let the hosts off the hook at Lord's this afternoon after fighting so hard to get back in contention.

  17. WICKET Walter (lbw Sidebottom) 4

    Yorkshire 113 v Essex 144-7

    Wickets continue to fall in clusters at Scarborough as former England bowler Ryan Sidebottom traps Paul Walter plumb in front.

    Essex have a slender lead of just 31 runs with 15 overs still remaining in the day.

  18. England close with big lead

    England 362 & 224-8 v South Africa 226

    Moeen Ali

    The rain, as it tends to, is falling in Lancashire, and it's persistent enough to bring an early close to proceedings on the third day of the Test between England and South Africa.

    It's not been plain sailing for England, but Moeen Ali's stylish 67 from a mere 59 balls has given them a big lead on a difficult batting track.

  19. Coad strikes twice in three balls

    Yorkshire 113 v Essex 139-6

    Ben Coad takes two wickets in three balls to once again drag Yorkshire back into the match at Scarborough.

    An away swinger from the 23-year-old takes the edge of Adam Wheater's bat who is caught behind for 34 before James Foster is caught at second slip for a duck.

  20. WICKET Ervine (c Davies b McLaren) 21

    Lancashire 149 v Hampshire 86-3

    Hampshire's seemingly inevitable march to a big lead over Lancashire no longer looks so inevitable.

    Sean Ervine is out for 21, edging Ryan McLaren behind for Alex Davies' third catch of the innings.
