Cricket can be a cruel game. Lancashire are relegated despite playing well. Nottinghamshire stay up despite being outplayed by Somerset, for whom Tom Abell took a hat-trick.
Meanwhile, Essex continue to dominate champions Surrey at The Oval after centuries by Tom Westley and Simon Harmer and Gary Ballance's unbeaten 189 carries Yorkshire into a first-innings lead against Worcestershire.
Only eight games are left in the summer's final round of Championship matches after Northamptonshire's six-wicket win over Sussex in Division Two.
Join us again tomorrow from about 10.00 BST for the third day's play.
