    Middlesex 233 & 152 v Lancashire 165 & 184 - Middlesex won by 36 runs

    Somerset 269 & 113-4 v Surrey 433

    Warwickshire 219 & 251 v Yorkshire 296 & 56-3

    Division Two

    Derbyshire v Kent - No play on first three days due to wet outfield

    Sussex 346 & 302 v Durham 385 & 5-0

    Glamorgan 442 & 63-1 v Gloucestershire 399-8d

    Northamptonshire 194 & 270 v Nottinghamshire 151 & 107-3

  3. Close of play at Chester-le-Street

    Sussex 346 & 302 v Durham 385 & 5-0 (3 overs)

    That is all for the day as the umpires call stumps in the north east.

  4. Stumps in Cardiff

    Glamorgan 442 & 63-1 (15 overs) v Gloucestershire 399-8d

    That's it for the night. Gloucestershire picked up just the one Glamorgan wicket in the 15 overs before the close.

    Glamorgan lead by 106 runs.

    Anyone reckon this might be a draw tomorrow? Anyone?

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

    Sussex 346 & 302 v Durham 385 & 5-0 (3 overs)

    With six overs left to be bowled that could be that at Chester-le-Street as the umpires take the players off. Tom Latham and Keaton Jennings remain unbeaten, needing another 259 runs to win.

  6. Six balls left on day three

    Glamorgan 442 & 59-1 (14 overs) v Gloucestershire 399-8d

    They're about to bowl the final over of the evening in Cardiff.

  7. WICKET Braithwaite (c Banks b Patel) 17

    Warwickshire 219 & 251 v Yorkshire 296 & 56-3 (21.4 overs)

    Kraigg Braithwaite is caught and off he goes. It's the final over of the day at Headingley. That's a blow for Yorkshire.

    Just seven wickets for them to defend tomorrow now.

    And with that, it's stumps at Headingley.

  8. Close of play at the Ageas Bowl

    Hampshire 254 v Essex 76 & 247-5 (94 overs)

    Jamie Porter and Ryan ten Doeschate reach the close as Gareth Berg's final over is seen off without any scares.

    It's been a good session from Hampshire, though with the two wickets of Ravi Bopara and Dan Lawrence falling. Essex lead by 69 runs with five wickets in hand. Day four promises to be a good one.

  9. Jordan takes wicket off a no ball

    Sussex 346 & 302 v Durham 385 & 4-0 (2 overs)

    View more on twitter

    Oh dear Chris Jordan. Tom Latham could be back in the pavilion if you'd kept your front foot behind the line...

  10. Two overs left for Essex to see off

    Hampshire 254 v Essex 76 & 246-5 (92 overs)

    Jamie Porter is doing his job as nightwatchman well so far. He and Ryan ten Doeschate are looking to make it to stumps unbeaten.

    There are two overs left to get through at the Ageas Bowl. One will be bowled by the fiery Fidel Edwards.

  11. Yorkshire need 120 more to win

    Warwickshire 219 & 251 v Yorkshire 296 & 55-2 (18.2 overs)

    With Kraigg Braithwaite and Gary Ballance (both on 16) at the crease, Yorkshire are adding runs steadily and still have eight wickets remaining.

    You could say it's Yorkshire's game to lose now. 120 more needed to win.

  12. Durham need 264 runs to win

    Whittingham (run out) 0

    Stuart Whittingham is run out to end Sussex's second innings on 302 from 72.1 overs.

    Durham will need 264 runs to win at Chester-le-Street.

  13. WICKET Lawrence (c Alsop b Edwards) 101

    Hampshire 254 v Essex 76 & 243-5 (88.1 overs)

    Ryan ten Doeschate survived some very close lbw appeals in the previous over, but the Hampshire pressure tells, with Fidel Edwardsgetting the big wicket of Dan Lawrence.

    He gets the gloves of the Essex centurion, with Tom Alsop taking the catch. Essex lead by 65 runs. Game very much on.

  14. WICKET Salt (b Jennings) 72

    Sussex 346 & 291-8 (70 overs) v Durham 385

    Phil Salt falls, bowled by Keaton Jennings off an inside edge for a first-class best of 72. Sussex lead by 254 runs and Durham will face a very difficult final day at this rate. Excellent innings from the Sussex youngster.

  15. for Dan Lawrence

    Hampshire 254 v Essex 76 & 243-4 (86.5 overs)

    And Dan Lawrence moves to 101 straight away with a mis-field from Kyle Abbott. It's his third century of the season, and in the circumstances a very high-class one.

    It's taken 207 balls, with 12 fours and one six.

    Dan Lawrence
  16. Lawrence moves to 99 with two edges

    Hampshire 254 v Essex 76 & 241-4 (86.4 overs)

    Dan Lawrence needs some fortune to get to 99 as two edges off Fidel Edwards fly through the well-stocked Hampshire slip cordon to the boundary.

  17. WICKET Lees (c Ambrose b Patel) 6

    Warwickshire 219 & 251 v Yorkshire 296 & 25-2 (11.1 overs)

    Make that eight wickets left, as Adam Lees is caught behind.

    Game on? Warwickshire will believe they can win this... Maybe. Just maybe.

  18. Yorkshire need 150 more to win

    Warwickshire 219 & 251 v Yorkshire 296 & 25-1 (11.0 overs)

    The hosts need a further 150 to win. They have nine wickets left.

    If they can wrap up a victory, it could be the difference between them going down and staying up, with just one more match remaining next week.

  19. WICKET Bopara (c Vince b Edwards) 57

    Hampshire 254 v Essex 76 & 228-4 (82.3 overs)

    View more on twitter

    Breakthrough for Hampshire. Fidel Edwards draws Ravi Bopara into a false shot, with James Vince taking the catch at second slip. That ends a big partnership with Dan Lawrence, who is unbeaten on 89.

  20. Gloucestershire declare 43 runs behind

    Glamorgan 442 v Gloucestershire 399-8d (110 overs)

    Thanks to James Bracey's career-best 156, Gloucestershire have built a big first-innings score and this match seems likely to conclude as a draw tomorrow.

    But Gloucestershire wickets have tumbled somewhat of late, as they went from 375-4 to 396-8.

    And with the visitors on 399-8 they have declared. Off they go for an innings break. Is there time for some Glamorgan wickets to fall this evening?
