  1. Signing off

    Warwickshire celebrate at Headingley

    What a day.

    Warwickshire beat Yorkshire to become one of four teams in contention for the County Championship title in next week's final round.

    And it ends with Leicestershire pulling off the unlikeliest of victories with just a few balls remaining against Sussex.

    We'll be back on Saturday for T20 Blast Finals Day and then next Tuesday there'll be full coverage of the Championship finale.

    You don't want to miss any of it!

    Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 128

    Fynn Hudson-Prentice cannot bat because of injury, so that's the game for Leicestershire.

    What a brilliant day's play with Harry Swindells (69*) and Louis Kimber (59*) setting up the home side's declaration after the overnight pair of Hassan Azad (152) and Lewis Hill (145) fell to Henry Crocombe.

    Sussex seemed to be securely on their way to a draw at 117-3, but six wickets went down for 11 runs as the lack of experience in their batting line-up was exposed by Callum Parkinson (4-18) and Ben Mike (4-34)..

    They are involved in T20 Blast Finals Day on Saturday before playing their final red-ball game at home to Derbyshire next week, with Leicestershire travelling to New Road to take on Worcestershire.


    Sarro c Swindells b Parkinson 1 (Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 128-9)

    Callum Parkinson tosses one up and Joseph Sarro edges to the keeper.

  6. Post update

    Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 128-8

    Another good over by Ben Mike, but Joseph Sarro manages to collect a single. Sean Hunt is in behind the final delivery.

    Sussex are five runs behind - there are three overs, 18 balls, to go.

  7. Post update

    Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 127-8

    Joseph Sarro is 19, he comes from Eastbourne.

    Sean Hunt is 19, he was born in Guildford.

    The task of saving Sussex is in their hands.

  8. Post update

    Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 127-8

    Sussex's Fynn Hudson-Prentice has a hand injury. Will he be able to bat if another wicket falls? Another Callum Parkinson maiden and there are four overs left.

  9. Post update

    Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 127-8

    Ben Mike again. Joseph Sarro survives and there are four byes in that over. Sussex need six more runs to bring the scores level.

    Five overs left. This is great stuff.

  10. Post update

    Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 123-8

    There have been more twists than a Chubby Checker fan convention (you'll need to be a certain age to understand) in the last few minutes.

    A maiden from Callum Parkinson to Sean Hunt. six Overs left.

  11. Post update

    Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 123-8

    Five dot balls to Joseph Sarro complete Ben Mike's over.

    There are seven remaining and Sussex are still 10 in arrears with just two wickets left.

  12. Post update

    Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 123-8

    No hat-trick for Ben Mike and Sean Hunt escapes the strike (rhyming text commentary) with a single from the second ball of his over.

  13. WICKET

    Carson lbw Parkinson 2 (Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 122-8)

    In the immortal words of Victor Meldrew 'I don't belieeeeeve it!'

    Jack Carson goes to the final ball of Callum Parkinson's latest over and Sean Hunt will face a hat-trick ball from Ben Mike to start the next.

    Sussex have lost five wickets for five runs.

  14. WICKET

    Carter c Evans b Mike 9 (Leicestershire 492-4 dec v Sussex 359 & 122-7)

    It was a miracle in Leicester when the bones of King Richard III were found beneath a car park - surely we're not going to witness another one now.

    Ben Mike has Oliver Carter caught at square leg and Henry Crocombe lbw with successive deliveries and suddenly, Sussex are 11 short of parity with only three wickets left.

    There are nine overs left in the game and Mike will be on a hat-trick at the start of his next over.


    Northamptonshire (183 & 231-9) draw with Durham (400)

    One final block from Simon Kerrigan who finishes with 28 from 135.

    Durham have thrown everything at Northamptonshire in their 97 overs in the second innings. Number nine Kerrigan absorbed 22 of them.

    What a cracking finish. Now, just one game remains. All eyes on Leicestershire v Sussex...

  16. Post update

    Northamptonshire 183 & 231-9 v Durham 400

    A miss and a single.

    Simon Kerrigan will face the final ball of the over.

  17. Post update

    Northamptonshire 183 & 230-9 v Durham 400

    Three balls to go after two more deliveries just outside the off-stump.

  18. Post update

    Northamptonshire 183 & 230-9 v Durham 400

    First ball from new bowler Paul Coughlin and it's a play and a miss. Tense.

  19. Post update

    Northamptonshire 183 & 230-9 v Durham 400

    Kerrigan blocks out the last five balls.

    Four overs left in the day, but if a wicket falls now, we wipe out this over and lose two for the change of innings. That would give Durham six balls to find 14 runs.

    Essentially, Durham need a wicket right now to stay in the game.

  20. Post update

    Northamptonshire 183 & 230-9 v Durham 400

    Single from Jack White off the first ball of the over brings Simon Kerrigan onto strike.
