  1. Goodbye for now

    Thanks for reading again today or just thanks for reading if it was your first time.

    Champions Surrey beat Warwickshire in Division One and Glamorgan beat Gloucestershire to go top of Division Two in our two County Championship matches that were on the final day.

    We'll be back at 10:50 BST for the conclusion of Sussex v Durham and Northamptonshire v Leicestershire tomorrow.

    Have a good night.

  2. Close of play

    Sussex 59-3 & 232 v Durham 384 & 284-3 dec

    Stiaan van Zyl sees out the final over, and Sussex close day three 377 runs behind Durham.

    The visitors will be looking for seven wickets tomorrow.

    Sussex will have to bat the day out.

  3. WICKET: Beer lbw b Rushworth 36

    Sussex 59-3 & 232 v Durham 384 & 284-3 dec

    Late drama at Hove!

    Chris Rushworth strikes to pick up his third victim of the evening and traps Will Beer lbw.

    That breaks up a decent partnership with Stiaan van Zyl.

    Ollie Robinson will act as nightwatchman for the final over of the day, but he might not face a ball.

    Liam Trevaskis will bowl the last over of the day.

  4. Post update

    Sussex 56-2 & 232 v Durham 384 & 284-3 dec

    Sussex have found a couple of boundaries.

    Will Beer is now 36 not out and Stiaan van Zyl is on 14.

    Their partnership is worth over 50 now as well.

    Two overs to go.

  5. Post update

    Sussex 44-2 & 232 v Durham 384 & 284-3 dec

    Into the final five overs of the evening, and we might have Chris Rushworth coming back into the Durham attack soon.

  6. Report: Glamorgan go top of Division Two

    Glamorgan (287 & 188-6) beat Gloucestershire (313 & 161) by four wickets

    Marnus Labuchagne

    Australia Test batsman Marnus Labuschagne hit 82 to steer Glamorgan to a four-wicket victory over Gloucestershire.

    Their third Championship win of the season takes them top of the table, one point ahead of Lancashire - who have a game in hand.

    Labuschagne made light of a potentially tricky target of 188 in 49 overs.

    Gloucestershire were bundled out for 161 in their second innings, with Michael Hogan claiming 4-22 in 18 overs.

  7. Close of play

    Leicestershire 273-7 v Northamptonshire 299

    That's it at Northampton. Bad light means no more play this evening.

    The final day is likely to play out for a draw, unless something dramatic happens early on tomorrow.

  8. Still going at Hove

    Sussex 40-2 & 232 v Durham 384 & 284-3 dec

    Will Beer moves on to 26 not out from 26 balls.

    That knock on the helmet he received has not affected him too much, which is good to see.

    The spin of Liam Trevaskis is coming on, with 11 overs remaining in the day.


    Glamorgan 188-6 & 287 beat Gloucestershire 313 & 161 by four wickets

    Graeme Wagg and Owen Morgan scramble a single and that's victory for Glamorgan by four wickets.

    It was rarely in doubt thanks to a superb 87 from Marnus Labuschagne. But really, it was set up by a magnificent bowling performance to skittle Gloucestershire for 161 in their second innings.

    That win takes them top of Division Two as well and keeps them unbeaten in the County Championship.

    For Gloucestershire, it's their first defeat in the competition this season.

  10. Post update

    Sussex 26-2 & 232 v Durham 384 & 284-3 dec

    Sussex have managed to get a few more runs.

    Will Beer is up to 13 not out and Stiaan van Zyl is unbeaten on 8.

    Fourteen overs remain this evening.

    The hosts are only 410 behind now. Only.

  11. WICKET: Douthwaite c van Buuren b Shaw 14

    Glamorgan 180-6 & 287 v Gloucestershire 313 & 161

    Dan Douthwaite goes for a huge slog to try and get even closer to victory but skies Josh Shaw's delivery and it's an easy catch for Graeme van Buuren.

    Eight runs to win. Shouldn't make a difference.

  12. Bad light stops play

    Leicestershire 273-7 v Northamptonshire 299

    Off for bad light at Northampton.

    That could be it for the day, although there are 15 more overs scheduled.

  13. A little flurry and Glamorgan nearly there

    Glamorgan 168-5 & 287 v Gloucestershire 313 & 161

    Dan Douthwaite and Graham Wagg have quickly added 15 runs at a run a ball and Glamorgan are almost home and hosed.

    They require 20 runs from a tad over 10 overs.

  14. Post update

    Sussex 9-2 & 232 v Durham 384 & 284-3 dec

    Concern for Sussex as Will Beer is caught on the helmet by a thudding delivery from Brydon Carse which loops up off his helmet to third slip.

    He goes through the concussion checks and is eventually deemed fine to continue.

  15. WICKET: Klein lbw b Coles 15

    Leicestershire 270-7 v Northamptonshire 299

    The Foxes lose their seventh wicket as Matt Coles comes to the party and traps Deiter Klein lbw.

    A partnership of 35 is broken.

    For what it's worth the visitors are 29 behind Northants' first-innings total, although with a day lost to rain yesterday it seems a draw is the most likely outcome.

  16. Report: Surrey seal first win

    Surrey (194 & 325) beat Warwickshire (215 & 230) by 74 runs

    Gareth Batty

    In case you missed it earlier today, reigning champions Surrey claimed the final seven wickets in just 108 minutes at The Oval to earn their first win of the season against Warwickshire.

    After resuming on 148-3, needing 142 to win on the final day, the Bears quickly lost nightwatchman Craig Miles.

    At 190-4, the Bears looked on course but they then folded, losing three wickets for no runs in seven balls, capped by Tim Ambrose's run-out mix-up.

    Despite Dom Sibley's 73, they were bowled out for 215 to lose by 74 runs.

  17. WICKET: Labuschagne c Roderick b Payne 82

    Glamorgan 154-5 & 287 v Gloucestershire 313 & 161

    NOW it's a little interesting.

    Marnus Labuschagne stands motionless in disbelief as the umpire raises his finger after he nicks David Payne to the wicketkeeper. The Glamorgan batsman's superb 82 has all-but won this match, but his dismissal just slightly opens the door.

    Two new batsmen at the crease.

    34 to win from 14 overs. Gloucestershire need five wickets for a bamboozling win.

  18. Post update

    Leicestershire 256-6 v Northamptonshire 299

    Leicestershire bring up the 250 at Northampton and secure their second batting bonus point.

    They have another 23 overs to press on and try and grab another.

  19. Post update

    Sussex 9-2 & 232 v Durham 384 & 284-3 dec

    Ten overs gone into their second innings and Sussex are understandably making slow progress, having lost two wickets early on.

    They remain 427 runs behind Durham.

    Chris Rushworth has 2-4 and we are due to have 20 more overs this evening.

  20. WICKET: Root c Dent b Shaw 31

    Glamorgan 147-3 & 287 v Gloucestershire 313 & 161

    Billy Root doesn't make much use of the life he was given as he lazily slaps Josh Shaw to Chris Dent at point.

    Slack shot but a useful 31 that has taken Glamorgan to the verge of victory.

    41 to win.
