Div1 #EssvYor Day 2: Porter was unable to add to his wicket tally, but Kohler-Cadmore doubled his run count as Yorkshire were dimissed for 275.
A far better show from Essex left them 105 ahead with 6 wickets remaining at the end of day 2, again, Ben Coad (3/61) was in the wickets for Yorkshire.
With the T20 Cricket World Cup Odds pointing in England's favour, at this time, some of the players on show will be wanting to get on the plane for the Tournament later in the year.
Gloucestershire v Lancashire - The Bristol County Ground, Bristol
Gloucestershire 282 (Dent 98, Bailey 6/92) & 58/1 (Hammond 38*; Anderson 1/22)
Lancashire 267 (Bailey 76, Livingstone 63, Jos Buttler 46; van Buuren 3/32)
Div1 #GlovLanc Day 2: A fantastic partnership between Tom Bailey (76) & Jos Buttler (46) took Lancashire to within 20 runs of Gloucestershire first innings. Graeme van Buuren mopped up the Lancashire tail with 3/32.
Anderson removed Chris Dent late on, but Miles Hammond (38*) looks set for Gloucestershire at the close.
Hampshire v Kent - The Ageas Bowl, Southampton
Hampshire 262 (Alsop 59, Milnes 6/75) & 49/1 (Vince 29*; Podmore 1/10)
Kent 345/9 (Robinson 94, Stevenson 4/102)
Div1 #HamvKen Day 2: A brilliant 6th wicket partnership between Blake (69) & Robinson (94), assisted by some big hitting from Podmore (73) saw Kent to an 83 run lead over Hampshire. Stevenson looked fiery with his 4 wickets for Hampshire but the loss of Weatherley late in the day was a bonus for Kent.
Surrey v Somerset – The Kia Oval, London
Surrey 290 (Jacks 68, Bess 5/65) & 33/1 (Burns 20*)
Somerset 404/6 (Abell 87, Byrom (82); Morkel 3/105)
Div1 #SurvSom Day 2: Some fine batting from the Somerset team with contributions from Tom Abell (87) and Byrom (82).
Morne Morkel (3/105) found some pace and bounce, but the Surrey bowlers did not find the consistent line and length needed to put pressure on the Somerset batting line up.
Warwickshire v Northamptonshire - Edgbaston, Birmingham
Warwickshire 237 (Ambrose 54, Ashraf 4/64) & 175/9 (Ambrose 45, Glover 3/33)
Northants 207 (Buck 81, Hannon-Dalby 5/34)
Div1 #WarvNor Day 2: What a difference a day makes and thanks to some wonderful ball striking by Nathan Buck (81), Northants broke through the 200 barrier to get closer to the Warwickshire 1st Innings total than initially it looked as though they would.
Wickets were shared between the Northants bowlers who made life hard for Warwickshire (Glover 3/33), and by the close of play it looked like Northants might have a chance to pull something out of the bag.
