On the final day, Taylor (5/73) tore the heart out of the Gloucester innings destroying hopes of a thrilling chase on day 4.
Despite the best efforts of Hammond who scored 162 in a fine innings, Gloucester were never really in the race fishing as they did 86 runs short of a strong all-round Hampshire performance.

Result – Northamptonshire won by 35 runs
Points – Northamptonshire 21pts, Kent 5pts
Sam Billings continued where he left off last night, accessing all parts of the ground on his way to a fine 93.
It was the introduction of Berg for Northants that was the undoing of Billings as well as two other Kent scalps, recording figures of 3/47.
With Blake and Stevens going strong it looked as if Kent were going to get across the line, but Sole (2/47) did for them both and the Kent tail were never up to the pressure of scoring the final 60/70 runs required to win the game.

Result – Lancashire won by 120 runs
Points – Lancashire 20pts , Surrey 3pts
There were some positives for Surrey to take from the final day as Ben Foakes and Nick Kimber both hitting half centuries in a total of 353. That said, Surrey have been shown to be some way off the pace as their troubles continue this season.
A defeat by a margin of 120 runs is large by any standards. Batting in the first inings again let Surrey down. There is still time for Surrey to make up some ground, but it seems like dmage limitation at this stage.

Somerset 333/4dec (Davies 132, Allison 2/52) & 95/4 (Banton 27*, Quinn 3/57)
Result – Somerset won by 6 wickets
Points – Somerset 22pts, Essex 3pts
On the final day, Brookes (5/81) & C Overton (5/81) showed plenty class and little mercy as they blew Essex away just before tea. 171 was all Essex could muster against the relentless Somerset pace attack.
Either side of tea, Somerset continued to pile on the pressure and despite losing four wickets, scored the required 90 runs at a cracking pace, with Banton scoring 27* and Quinn doing his best for Essex in taking 3/57.
Yorkshire v Warwickshire
Yorkshire 352/9 dec (Patterson 98*, Hannon Dalby 3/63) & 287/4dec (Lyth 133*, Woakes 2/79

Result – Yorkshire won by 149 runs
Points – Yorkshire 22pts, Warwickshire 4 pts
Some resistance from the lower order allowed Ambrose to reach 91 before he was sent packing by Waite.
In reality, the result was inevitable, and the deficit of 149 runs at the end was slightly flattering of the Warwickshire performance.
