Gloucestershire 321/6 (Hammond 124, Stevenson 3/70) & 119/6 (Howell 52*, Stevenson 2/48)
Hampshire 184ao (Vince 70, van Buuren 5/39)
Hampshire will think they were batting on a different wicket today after they were blown away for just 184 before tea on day 2. Only Vince managed to cope with the Gloucestershire bowling as he scored a well-made 70.
van Buuren (5/39) was the pick of the Gloucester bowlers, but there was a twist in the end of the day for the hosts. It may have been the cloud cover, or something in the air, but the Hampshire bowlers fired in the evening and reduced Gloucestershire to 119/6 with Howell left not out overnight on 52*, and with a chance to pull this game back in the morning.
Kent 309ao (Blake 89*, C Overton 3/74) & Kent 57/0 (Crawley 42*)
Somerset 270ao (Abell 59, Stevens 3/91)
Tom Abell (59) led the way with a solid half century after Davies went first ball. Only Banton (49) was able to build any type of score with the rest contributing 20s and 30s in Somerset's 270ao, 39 behind Kent's first innings score.
Darren Stevens (3/91) spearheaded the Kent attack, showing he still has the knack of taking crucial wickets at crucial moments. By the close, Crawley has motored to 42* as Kent reached 57/0 in double time.
Warwickshire 117ao (Ambrose 44, Anderson 5/56) & 162/5 (Bell 53, Onions 3/50)
Lancashire 337ao (Bailey 84*, Hannon-Dalby 3/83)
A fantastic recovery by an unselfish captain Bailey (84*) in partnership with Onions (76) helped Lancashire to a very strong position as they closed their innings on 337/8, Bailey calling a halt to his own innings 16 short of what was a certain 100.
Lancashire were able to pile on the pressure as Onions took control with 3/50 to put Warwickshire a long way behind the game finshing the day five down with only 162 on the board and plenty to do to avoid an innings defeat.
Northants 181ao (Vasconcelos 61, Kimber 5/35) & 204/8 (Wakely 63, Clarke 3/50)
Surrey 208ao (Plunkett 67, Buck 4/58)
Thanks to a swashbuckling 67 from Liam Plunkett, Surrey got themselves over the 200 mark before they were dismissed 27 runs in the lead on just 208.
They will feel a real opportunity has gone begging here. Northants were able to mount a good riposte through captain Wakely (63), to close on 204/8 and they will hope that Clarke (3/50) can be kept at bay in the morning for the hosts to build a big 2nd innings lead.
Essex 190ao (Westley 81, Bresnan 5/35) & 132/2 (Cook 63, Patterson 1/19)
Yorkshire 316/9 dec (Malan 77, Harmer 4/60)
Malan (77), Balance (66), and laterly Waite (33) and Patterson (29) all contributed beautifully to Yorkshire's 316ao, with Simon Harmer doing his best to restrict the hosts with his figures of 4/60.
Essex set about building a competitive total through Cook (63) & Westley after the early loss of Browne as they ended the day just two down and sitting pretty on 132, poised to get themselves far ahead tomorrow on a very flat wicket.
