Middlesex v Nottinghamshire: venue Lord's, London
Nottinghamshire 315 (Patel 91, Moores 64, Murtagh 4/65, Harris 3/73)
Middlesex 323 (Simpson 80, Harris 64, Robson 51, Mullaney 3/38)
This game is very even at the half way point, Middlesex with a small lead of just 8 runs. They will be pleased to gain a lead but that lead could have been considerably bigger making things easier going into days 3 and 4.
Their batters made starts but none of them converted - Simpson, Robson and Harris all passed 50 but no centuries to speak of. The Notts bowlers chipped away all day with Mullaney and Chappell both taking 3 wickets.
Sussex v Glamorgan: venue Hove
Sussex 110 (de Lange 6/39, Hogan 4/71) & 332 (Archer 105*, Garton 57, Hogan 4/93)
Glamorgan 149 (Bopara 4/26, Robinson 4/36)
Sussex set themselves up for a victory in this game. After all the wickets falling on day 1 today was much quieter in that regard as the wicket flatten out a little allowing the batters to play more freely.
Captain Brown and Salt got starts but it wasn’t until Garton (57) and Archer (105*) came together you felt Sussex assumed control. Archer completing his highly entertaining century just in time as he was left high and dry and his team in the box seat despite Hogan's (4/93) efforts.
Leicestershire v Worcestershire: venue Leicester
Leicestershire 383/5dec (Dearden 167*, Ackermann 69, Horton 57)
Worcestershire 181 (Wright 4/86) & 132/4 (Mitchell 62)
Leicestershire dominated day 2 of this match removing Worcestershire for 181 before asking them to follow-on. Christopher Wright led the attack taking 4/86 and Dieter Klein remarkably took his 2nd hat-trick of the season.
None of the Worcestershire batters got in and it was no surprise when they were asked to bat again. Mitchell made 62 second time around; but Worcestershire are still 40 behind four down.
Derbyshire v Durham: venue Derby
Durham 232 (Harte 72, Palladino 6/61) & 66/3
Derbyshire 310/6dec (Godleman 150, Hosein 51*, Wood 3/77)
Billy Godleman inspired his team with a magnificent ton. He made 150 out of his team's total before he declared after Hosein made 51*.
His stroke play was of the highest order as the Durham seamers toiled, only Wood 3/77 with anything to show for the day's play. Durham were 66/3 at the close still trailing the hosts by twelve.
