County cricket: Lancashire v Durham, Sussex v Yorkshire and more – live

Yorkshire stuttering in their chase of 183. Finlay Bean and Shan Masood back in the hutch already! Yorks 21-2 and need 162 more… Sussex pulling off some nifty grabs too:

Joe Root joins Adam Lyth out in the middle. Another one before lunch will make it interesting…

Somerset enforce the follow on. Kent 178 all out and still trailing by 378 runs. Gulp.

Surrey man his century. Waite then picks up Gus Atkinson with a carbon copy a couple of balls later. At the other end – Sean Abbott crunches Yadvinder Singh for a couple of sixes into the sun scorched bleachers before Singh has the last laugh by cleaning him up bowled.

Surrey are batting on despite a humongous lead of 511 runs and counting. Kemar Roach joins Dan Worrall in the middle.

Lancashire opener, bustling in with purpose. Stokes looking every inch a lean and tat laden Vincent Van Gogh.

Somerset stream with Migael Pretorius keeping Joe Denly honest, zoning in on the pads and stumps. Denly quirts a single off the inside edge to bring Joey Evison onto strike. BOLWED ‘IM! Pretorius nips one back and sends the leg stump cartwheeling! Kent 147-6 and Somerset holding all the aces.Warwickshire spluttering at 53-6 but they do have a handsome lead of 288 runs. Essex creeping back into the contest though.Hampshire. Joe Clarke strides to the wicket with purpose in the midlands.

Unlucky for some – namely Aussies – Dan Lawrence has fallen for 87 at The Oval! Ben Gibbon digs one in short and Lawrence won’t be happy to get out to it. A half tracker in truth and he spoons the pull shot to Nathan Smith on the square leg boundary.

Durham get themselves back into this game? They might need a certain Benjamin…Warwickshire 397 and 43-5
