Live Reporting

  1. What a washout!

    Well, we started with eight games and we finished with none.

    Sadly the extremely damp weather throughout today has beaten us and I don't recall that ever happening before.

    So, no change to the groups after tonight and as mentioned, the Blast takes a back seat now until next Thursday.

    Until then, thanks for being with us and make sure to check out the County Championship action from Sunday.

  2. Red ball returns this Sunday!

    Simon Harmer

    Our next live county cricket here on BBC Sport sees the return of the County Championship on Sunday.

    A full programme in both divisions, here's how the fixtures look:

    Division One:

    Canterbury: Kent v Essex

    The Oval: Surrey v Hampshire

    Edgbaston: Warwickshire v Somerset

    Scarborough: Yorkshire v Nottinghamshire

    Division Two:

    Derby: Derbyshire v Gloucestershire

    Chester-le-Street: Durham v Leicestershire

    Colwyn Bay: Glamorgan v Lancashire

    Northampton: Northamptonshire v Worcestershire

    Hove: Sussex v Middlesex

    Weather permitting, we'll bring you live radio, text and social media updates from all those games throughout the four days, starting on Sunday morning.

  3. And that is that

    Sadly, we've now had all eight fixtures abandoned....

    Word has just come through from Canterbury that the match has been abandoned.

    While we wait for the seemingly inevitable announcement from Canterbury to complete the set, why not watch the highlights of the play that was possible in the morning session at Lord's earlier.

  5. Listen live


    So if we do manage to get any play in the two remaining games this evening, it will be available to listen to on BBC local radio through this very page.

    You can find your commentary of choice through the live coverage options.

    In the meantime, until we get any word of likely starts, we'll pause our updates for the time being.

  6. And another one's off!

    There were five, now it's six matches abandoned tonight.

    Hampshire v Surrey at the Ageas Bowl is the latest to be called off...

    So, just Chelmsford and Canterbury still clinging on to a chance of some play tonight.

  7. Rain disrupts Lord's Test once again

    It's been a pretty grim day since about 13:00 BST as only one session of play was possible on the third day of the second Test.

  8. If you need to catch up....

    Imran Tahir

    There were three T20 Blast matches on Thursday night that all had a significant bearing on the qualification places for the quarter-finals.

    In case you missed an unbeaten record falling, a close-run thing in a low-scoring game and an underdog pulling off another impressive win - here's the place to catch up.

  9. Early call off.....

    They didn't hang around to make a decision at Old Trafford this evening where the meeting of North Group leaders Lancashire Lightning and Birmingham Bears was the first game to be called off at about 15:30 BST....

    Somerset fan

    The Great British Summer eh?

    Well, I'm not really sure what's happened to it in recent weeks and yet again, some very wet weather has wreaked havoc with the cricket schedule.

    We had been due to bring you eight matches in the T20 Blast tonight, but alas, the elements have already got the better of a few of those.

    More details on the way....
