Worcestershire 126 (D'Oliveira 35, Rampaul 7/55) & 29/1
After the craziness of day 1 today was a lot more like 'normal' Virtual County Championship Cricket with Derbyshire making 310 before reducing Worcestershire to 29/1 at the close.
Du Plooy 73 and Hughes 50 shared a century stand which would have seemed impossible on day 1. There were contributions throughout the innings and with the late wicket it's the home team that are in the box seat here.
Durham v Leicestershire
Durham 188 (Stokes 56, Taylor 4/83) & 117/5 (Trevaskis 42*)
Leicestershire 358 (Horton 94, Ackermann 86, Rushworth 3/89)
Amazingly after just two days of play the table toppers find themselves in the brink of another championship victory. Horton (94) and captain Ackermann (86) both played beautifully in setting the game up for the team and then the bowlers knocked over the Durham top order.
By stumps Durham found themselves still 53 runs adrift with only 5 wickets left.
Nottinghamshire v Glamorgan
Nottinghamshire 238 (Mullaney 92, Slater 60, Meschede 3/26) & 72/5
Glamorgan 372/3dec (Selman 171*, Root 147)
Glamorgan continued to dominate this Division 2 fixture in the Virtual County Championship at Trent Bridge. Nick Selman and Billy Root both scored fantastic centuries which allowed the visitors to declare before obtaining five of Nottinghamshire's top order before the close.
Selman (171*) batted the whole innings giving few chances as he made the highest score of the summer so far and Root returned to his former employers to register (147) and put Glamorgan firmly in control.
Sussex v Middlesex
Middlesex 175 (Gubbins 58, Briggs 3/10; Robinson 3/28) & 129/5 (Eskinazi 50, Archer 3/68)
Sussex 346/9dec (Salt 135, Bopara 100; Roland-Jones 3/93)

They declared with a lead of 171 in time for their seamers to take 5 wickets before the close and put themselves on the brink of victory.
