  1. So long, farewell


    And that is that for our coverage of this round of the County Championship.

    As mentioned, we take a break from live text reporting now until "the red-ball game" returns in June.

    Until then, we'll give James Vince the honour of closing the day after his superb double century for Hampshire against Somerset not only secured his side a draw, but probably cemented his place in England's squad for the first Test against Pakistan.

    That get's named tomorrow, but who did you name in your England XI?

    Here's the results.

    Until next time, thanks for being with us....

  2. Championship makes way for the One-Day Cup


    So that is that for this particular phase of the County Championship season.

    We now take a break from the four-day game until Saturday, 9 June and make way for the One-Day Cup.

    It all starts on Thursday as Nottinghamshire begin their defence of the trophy at Old Trafford against Lancashire. That's one of five games that day.

    You'll be able to follow all the action with live ball-by-ball commentary from our BBC local radio colleagues both here on the BBC Sport Website and on the app on your mobile and tablet.

  5. Post update

    So, that's that for all our matches.

    The last two draws there almost being declared at the same time!


    Middlesex 455-8 dec v v Gloucestershire 210 & 326-4 (111 overs)

    Sam Robson drops short with his fifth and Graeme van Buuren pulls that one away for four runs. He moves to 46. A dot ball...

    And that's it!

    Great effort by Gloucestershire after following-on 245 runs behind.

    Well batted, James Bracey, who ends on 125 not out.


    Derbyshire 427 & 279-9 v Durham 520

    And there it is. That is the draw at the County Ground.

    Durham had a brave go at that thanks to Mark Wood's 6-46 with the ball - a first-class career best.

    Stuart Poynter picked up five catches behind the stumps.

    But, some strong resistance there at the end by Derbyshire held out for the draw.

  8. Post update

    Derbyshire 427 & 279-9 v Durham 520

    Durham may well be chucking in the towel as well now as Aiden Markram comes on to bowl his occasional off-breaks.

    Derbyshire 186 runs ahead with a minimum of 20 overs to bowl.

    Will we see handshakes here too soon?

  9. Time nearly up for Middlesex

    Middlesex 455-8 dec v v Gloucestershire 210 & 322-4 (109 overs)

    Just 140 balls bowled at first-class level for Sam Robson.

    James Bracey and Graeme van Buuren trade singles before the latter drives the occasional leggie for four.

  10. Gloucestershire close to the draw

    Middlesex 455-8 dec v v Gloucestershire 210 & 314-4 (108 overs)

    James Bracey drives Ollie Rayner down the ground for a single to move to 123.

    Graeme van Buuren cuts a wide one away for four to increase the lead to 69.

    This game has drifted away from Middlesex... And now Sam Robson is going to bowl.

  11. Post update

    Derbyshire 427 & 269-9 v Durham 520

    Derbyshire still hanging in there with Tony Palladino and Ravi Rampaul.

    A minimum of 22 overs still to be bowled, but remember we'd lose three for a change of innings.

    The hosts' lead now 176.

    Rob Meech: James Vince is such a talented batsman. I really hope that, if selected, he can finally cement a spot in England’s Test XI. But then again, the definition of insanity is repeating the same thing and expecting a different outcome

    Wes Spearman: James Vince, take a bow


    Hampshire 231 & 432-4 (150 overs) v Somerset 506

    Craig Overton takes us to handshakes with a very passable impression of an off-spinner.

    James Vince finishes unbeaten on 201 not out from 437 balls, with Rilee Rossouw on 65 from 174 balls.

    Hampshire take nine points; Somerset 13.

    Here's how that affects the Division One table...

    Div one
  14. Gloucestershire move past 300

    Middlesex 455-8 dec v v Gloucestershire 210 & 305-4 (105 overs)

    Graeme van Buuren takes a risky single off Dawid Malan's second ball but he gets away with it.

    Lovely shot from James Bracey, who drives Malan through the covers for four. A forward short leg comes in - and that's four more! Driven through mid off. Hard to see where a Gloucestershire wicket is going to come from now.

  15. for James Vince

    Hampshire 231 & 432-4 (148.3 overs) v Somerset 506

    james vince

    James Vince sweeps Eddie Byrom (in his 10th over!) for four to move onto 201 not out.

    A great innings, not diminished by the last 30 minutes of part-time nonsense bowling.

  16. Trial by spin at Lord's

    Middlesex 455-8 dec v v Gloucestershire 210 & 295-4 (104 overs)

    Ollie Rayner is coming on to bowl now.

    Graeme van Buuren is watchful, happy to defend. In theory a minimum of 23 overs remain in the game, but the players may well shake hands on a draw soon.

    Dawid Malan to bowl next.

  17. Palladino & Rampaul hold firm

    Derbyshire 427 & 257-9 v Durham 520

    Mark Wood takes a break from his excellent spell at Derby to be replaced by Nathan Rimmington.

    Derbyshire are hanging in there to try and kill some crucial overs with last pair Tony Palladino (21 not out) and Ravi Rampaul (5 not out) pushing their lead beyond 160.

    There's still a minimum of 25 overs to be bowled in the day.

  18. Bartlett off for dangerous bowling

    Hampshire 231 & 425-4 (147.2 overs) v Somerset 506

    Bit of a farce now at Taunton as George Bartlett bowls the worst ball you're ever likely to see and is taken off for a second dangerous ball.

    Craig Overton is going to complete his over, bowling off-breaks.

  19. James Bracey bats on

    Middlesex 455-8 dec v v Gloucestershire 210 & 295-4 (103 overs)

    Shot! Tom Helm offers a bit of width outside the off stump and James Bracey cuts it away for four more. 50 ahead now.

    Bracey has 113. Ooh, careful. Tom Helm bowls one down the leg side and Bracey chases it without making contact. Still six wickets in hand.

  20. Vince the marathon man

    Hampshire 231 & 420-4 (146 overs) v Somerset 506

    On the field Rilee Rossouw heaves a rank full-toss from George Bartlett for six.

    Hampshire can declare at 16:50 BST to trigger handshakes.
