  1. Signing off

    Warwickshire captain Jeetan Patel

    Another round of Championship games is at an end - almost.

    It's been an excellent day for Kent and Warwickshire, with wins over Notts and Yorkshire respectively, while Leicestershire's Hassan Azad made his own little piece of history by scoring a century in each innings in their draw with Leicestershire.

    Worcestershire v Sussex will continue tomorrow and we'll have full radio commentary for you from about 10:50 BST.

    Thanks for your company over the last four days.

    Sussex lead by 108 with five wickets standing

  3. Sussex stretch lead to 108

    Sussex 255 & 236-5 v Worcs 383 - close

    Centurion Laurie Evans and David Wiese will still be at the crease tomorrow morning, when they will look to build on Sussex's 108-run lead over Worcestershire.

    The visitors recovered from 34-4 earlier today, which owed much to the partnership between captain Ben Brown who struck 64 and Evans, who finished unbeaten 105.

    It has been fairly tight throughout, with momentum shifting this way and that, but Sussex will be the happier of the two going into the final day after a strong afternoon showing.

  4. Rhodes delighted with 'big scalp'

    Warwickshire (21 pts) beat Yorkshire (5 pts) by three wickets

    Will Rhodes

    There were a few anxious moments for Warwickshire before they finally got over the line in their Championship game against Yorkshire.

    Opener Will Rhodes made 83 in York against his former club as the Bears chased down a target of 217 and he believes a second win in three games can only boost their confidence.

    "Yorkshire are a really good side and to come and beat any side who are unbeaten in Division One is a really big scalp," he told BBC WM 95.6.

    "I'd been struggling for a while with form and had worked on some things with (coach) Tony Frost before getting back into the first team. It was nice to come here and get some runs as it's a ground I'd played a lot of cricket on in the past, so I tried to pass on as much of my knowledge as I could."

  5. for Laurie Evans

    Sussex 255 & 231-5 v Worcs 383

    Laurie Evans

    Evans reaches his century.

    It's his first of the season and you have to go back to July 2015 for his previous one.

    On that occasion he recorded his highest ever score of 213 not out for former club Warwickshire, as they put on 612-6 declared against his current club Sussex.

    This one has come off 140 balls and helped move Sussex into a lead of 103 with four overs remaining.

  8. 'We deserve to be bottom' - Mullaney

    Kent (22 pts) beat Notts (5 pts) by 285 runs

    Nottinghamshire captain Steven Mullaney was not a happy man after seeing his side fall to a heavy 285-run defeat to Kent, saying they could have no complaints about propping up the Division One table.

    “We’re at the bottom and 100 per cent we deserve to be. We’ve been the worst team by a long stretch," he told BBC Radio Nottingham.

    "I think it is embarrassing and we’re getting to that point where, we are a good team on paper, but we’ve got to find something now for the seven games that are left.

    “There’s only 15 or 16 guys that can turn it round and we’ve got to start doing it when Essex come to Trent Bridge in 10 days time.”

  9. WICKET Brown c sub (Westbury) b Barnard 64

    Sussex 255 & 195-5 v Worcs 383

    Ed Barnard breaks up the partnership and his celebration tells you it's been hard work for the Worcestershire bowlers this afternoon.

    Brown eventually goes, getting under a pull shot and being caught in the deep by substitute fielder Westbury.

    He may have been dismissed but again the skipper has dug his team out of a large hole and his runs and leadership have made the score look a lot rosier than it did when he arrived at the crease.

    Brown is in excellent form, averaging 76 this season.

    A real captain's knock today.

  10. Division One table

    Yorkshire missed out on the chance to climb a place to third after losing at home to Warwickshire.

    But Kent and Warwickshire move up by virtue of their wins at York and Tunbridge Wells, which means last season's Surrey are now in the bottom two.

    There is still plenty of time for an upturn in form, but it's not looking good for Notts, who are still to win a game - with half of them gone - and are 15 points adrift at the bottom.

  11. BreakingWARWICKSHIRE BEAT YORKSHIRE BY 3 WICKETS

    Yorkshire 259 & 211 v Warwickshire 254 & 219-7

    They made heavy weather of it in the final session but Warwickshire end Yorkshire's unbeaten record as Jeetan Patel lofts the winning boundary to mid-wicket on the ground where he played club cricket in 2003.

    The visitors were cruising at 132-0 and 166-1, having been set a target of 217, but lost five wickets for 34 runs, with young spinner James Logan taking 4-22 for Yorkshire.

    An enjoyable week at Clifton Park as York staged a Championship game fior the first time for 129 years, even if the locals don't like the result - and one to remember for Warwickshire's Oliver Hannon-Dalby who had career-best match figures of 9-137 against his former team.

    Warwickshire take 21 points from the game and Yorkshire five.

  12. WICKET Ambrose c Kohler-Cadmore b Thompson 2

    Yorkshire 259 & 211 v Warwickshire 254 & 215-6

    Tim Ambrose is almost run out by Will Fraine's direct hit as he scurries to take a second run at the start of a new over. Two balls later he edges to first slip and Warwickshire lose their seventh wicket.

    Quite some decline - but they only need two more runs.

    Apparently Liam Norwell is carrying an injury but he's sure to come out to bat if required.

  13. Sussex keeping bowlers at bay

    Sussex 255 & 162-4 v Worcs 383

    Ben Brown and Laurie Evans are continuing to fight off the Worcestershire attack in the evening sunshine at Kidderminster.

    After reducing Sussex to 34-4, this partnership has added 128 runs and taken the visitors to a lead of 33.

    Worcestershire CCC
  14. WICKET Hose b Logan 24

    Yorkshire 259 & 211 v Warwickshire 254 & 213-6

    Another one gone and it's four wickets now for James Logan, who beats Adam Hose in the flight.

  15. Bears on the brink

    Yorkshire 259 & 211 v Warwickshire 254 & 213-5

    One blow will do it now after Adam Hose takes three off Jordan Thompson.

  16. Bears target into single figures

    Yorkshire 259 & 211 v Warwickshire 254 & 210-5

    James Logan appeals for lbw as Adam Hose sweeps. The ball runs away and the batsmen takes three runs, with the umpire ruling there was contact with the bat before the pad. Only seven more required.

  17. Hose finds the boundary

    Yorkshire 259 & 211 v Warwickshire 254 & 207-5

    Adam Hose opens the face and collects four off Jordan Thompson before rotating the strike with a single to move on to 18 not out.

    Tim Ambrose blocks the final two deliveries of the over - just 10 needed now.

  18. WICKET Lamb b Logan 7

    Yorkshire 259 & 211 v Warwickshire 254 & 202-5

    Matt Lamb charges down the track, slogs across the line, misses and is bowled.

    That's three wickets for James Logan now.

    The experienced Tim Ambrose comes out to bat - surely we won't see any needless rush of blood from him.

    Fifteen overs left, 15 runs needed.

  19. Warwickshire almost there

    Yorkshire 259 & 211 v Warwickshire 254 & 202-4

    Steven Patterson decides to take a break and summons Jordan Thompson to replace him.

    Adam Hose collects three runs and Matt Lamb puts the next delivery away for four with a textbook cover drive to take the total past 200.

    Just 15 more needed by the visitors.

  20. Let-off for Bears pair

    Yorkshire 259 & 211 v Warwickshire 254 & 190-4

    Signs of nerves in the Warwickshire camp as a mix-up between Adam Hose and Matt Lamb almost results in a run out.

    Fortunately for them, it doesn't, and Hose collects fours run off Steven Patterson later in the over.

    He is seven not out and Warwickshire need another 27 to win.
