  1. Thanks for joining us

    Dawid Malan

    That just about brings our coverage of day two to an end. Cheers for your company.

    Dawid Malan will go to bed happy tonight. We hope you all do too. See you tomorrow.

  2. Another busy day at Grace Road

    Derbyshire 160-8 & 139 v Leicestershire 120

    This one will do well to reach tea tomorrow - it's moved on at such a pace with EIGHT wickets going down in the final session of day two.

    Derbyshire lead by 179 runs with once again Wayne Madsen the linchpin of their innings after scoring 51. Along with his 47 first time around, they are the two highest individual scores in this match and, realistically, the difference between the sides.

    Leicestershire's batting demise was largely brought about by a fantastic 5-29 from Tony Palladino, which helped skittle them for just 120.

  4. WICKET Hosein c Hill b Abbas 22

    Derbyshire 159-8 & 139 v Leicestershire 120

    Harvey Hosein becomes the eighth wicket to fall since tea as he feathers Mohammad Abbas behind to the wicketkeeper and up goes the finger.

    He is NOT happy though. He stands there, stares the umpire down for a bit and eventually walks off after pointing at his bat to suggest he didn't hit the ball.

    Mr Hosein could be trouble for that...

  5. WICKET Dal b Davis 5

    Derbyshire 159-7 & 139 v Leicestershire 120

    Will Davis bowls Anuj Dal for 5 to end his uneventful knock. He was in for 41 minutes - that's quite a delay since the flurry of six wickets after tea.

    Two overs left in this long, long, long day.

  6. Still playing in Leicester

    Derbyshire 157-6 & 139 v Leicestershire 120

    If you're wondering why we're still here it's because of that.

    I can't see clearly but I can only assume they're using night vision goggles at Grace Road while Derbyshire build a lead over Leicestershire.

    Either that or it's a lot brighter than where I am.

  7. Read more: Middlesex in charge after Malan ton

    Here's our report from day two at Worcester, as Middlesex captain Dawid Malan's superb hundred puts his side firmly in the driving seat against Worcestershire.

  8. Stumps at New Road

    Middlesex 221 & 195-2 v Worcestershire 156

    At the close at New Road, Middlesex have a 260-run lead, largely thanks to Dawid Malan's unbeaten 107 and Nick Gubbin's unbeaten 72.

    Those two will be back tomorrow morning from around 11:00 BST to try and add to that lead further.

  9. Yorkshire survive to stumps

    Yorkshire 5-0 & 181 v Hampshire 235

    A confidence boost for Yorkshire as Adam Lyth (3) and Harry Brook (1) make it to the close. Plenty of work to do tomorrow though as they trail by 49 runs.

    A battling batting display from Hampshire has put them on top, Sam Northeast's 49 and an unbeaten 54 from James Fuller were the pick for them. Ben Coad's 4-41 stood out for Yorkshire.

    All to play for on day three then.

  10. Stumps at Edgbaston

    Warwickshire 293 & 26-0 v Surrey 188

    It's 'job done' for the night for Will Rhodes and Dom Sibley, as the hosts get to the close without loss.

    The duo faced 72 balls without too much to worry about.

    They lead by 131 runs and will resume tomorrow morning on 26-0.

  11. No nightwatchman for Yorkshire

    Yorkshire 2-0 & 181 v Hampshire 235

    Adam Lyth and Harry Brook are the usual Yorkshire openers and out they come. Lyth takes a two from Keith Barker's opening over and Fidel Edwards will take the new ball for Hampshire from the other end.

    This is a crucial mini session now - just two more overs for Yorkshire to survive.

  12. for Malan

    Middlesex 186-2 & 221 v Worcestershire 156

    If England selector Ed Smith needed a reminder of Dawid Malan's credentials for this summer's Ashes, the Middlesex skipper has given him one today.

    A superb century from 121 balls with 14 boundaries.

    Don't bet against an England comeback.

    Middlesex, by the way, are in a match-winning position now. 186-2 and 251 runs ahead in the second innings.

  13. Warwickshire look to keep wickets intact tonight

    Warwickshire 293 & 13-0 v Surrey 188

    At Edgbaston, Warwickshire have safely navigated the first eight of the 12 overs they have to bat tonight before the close, without losing a wicket.

    Dom Sibley and Will Rhodes both have seven runs, after one four each, and plenty of dot balls.

    Surrey will want to change that in the next four overs to give themselves a boost before day three.

  14. Stumps at Hove

    Glamorgan 186 & 137-1 v Sussex 420

    It's turned out to be a better evening than expected for Glamorgan, who have dug in to reach the close with just one wicket down.

    Marnus Labuschagne's 77 and Nick Selman's 45 have together given the visitors hope against Sussex.

    Their 137-run partnership leaves this one nicely poised ahead of day three, although Glamorgan still have it all to do to avoid defeat, trailing by 97 runs.

  15. WICKET Edwards b Coad 1

    Hampshire 235 v Yorkshire 181

    That's Hampshire all out.

    Ben Coad has done to the Hampshire tail what Fidel Edwards did to Yorkshire's - and it's Edwards who's the last man out as Coad cleans up his stumps to finish with figures of 4-41.

    James Fuller is left stranded on 54 not out after a superb knock.

    Hampshire will be happy enough you'd think - it's a lead of 54 runs.

  16. for Fuller

    Hampshire 235-9 v Yorkshire 181

    It's taken longer than I expected but James Fuller finally unleashes, smashes a six over long-on to take him to the half-century. It took him 73 balls to get there and that's his third maximum, as well as four boundaries.

  17. WICKET Crane b Coad 5

    Hampshire 225-9 v Yorkshire 181

    Ben Coad, no jumper in sight I might add, just knows how to bowl to tailenders. The Yorkshire seamer steams in and gets it full(ish) and straight with a hint of movement away.

    Mason Crane dangles his bat but is nowhere near it and the bails go flying. Hampshire will wish day two had ended.

    Cue fireworks from James Fuller, who's 46 not out, I suspect.

  19. Essex dominate Kent on day two

    Kent 182 v Essex 313

    Essex are in superb position after two days at Chelmsford thanks to a great performance from their bowlers. They dismissed Kent for 182 and secured a lead of 131 runs, Simon Harmer and Peter Siddle took three wickets a piece with Jamie Porter and Simon Cook grabbing two each.

    This was no slapdash batting performance from Kent. They dug in for 88 overs but no one reached anything close to Alastair Cook's 125 for Essex. There were 45 runs added for the last wicket to avoid the follow-on, but Kent's top scorer was Daniel Bell-Drummond with 28. That tells the story.

  20. They're coming back out at Edgbaston...

    Warwickshire 293 & 0-0 v Surrey 188

    In contrast, they're not ending there for the day at Edgbaston.

    Warwickshire are about to come back out to bat for 12 overs tonight before the close.

    It's because they're trying to catch up on overs missed because of the weather yesterday, as well as making up for delays earlier today.
