Last Updated: 09/06/15 6:16pm
Live updates from day three of seven games in the County Championship.
DURHAM (189 & 314) bt SOMERSET (225 & 158) by 120 runs
Paul Coughlin took 4-10 as Durham completed a good win over Somerset by a margin of 120 runs. Coughlin took the prize wicket of Peter Trego (35) among a clutch of middle-order batsmen, while Graham Onions (3-73) and Chris Rushworth (2-46) chipped in.
Chris Rushworth finished on 43 as Durham were bowled out for 314 on Tuesday morning leaving the visitors needing 279 to win in their second innings but they never got close to that, with none of the batting line-up getting going after Marcus Trescothick was dismissed for 35.
YORKSHIRE (229 & 122-2) v MIDDLESEX (212 & 229)
16:35: Tim Bresnan has been in the thick of it this morning, bowling out John Simpson (15) and catching Dawid Malan (35) off Adam Lyth as Middlesex added a further 50 runs in their second innings before Will Rhodes disposed of the final wicket - of Tim Murtagh - to set Yorkshire a victory target of 213.
England batsman Lyth (61no) is helping steer the champions towards that total and what should be a victory.
HAMPSHIRE (392 & 126-4) bt SUSSEX (251 & 266) by 6 wickets
Hampshire wrapped up a six-wicket victory over Sussex at Hove, polishing off the 25 runs required for victory after tea.
Steve Terry hit an unbeaten 62 and Jimmy Adams (30) provided some good early impetus.
Sussex pressed ahead with the bat this morning and eventually posted 266 to set Hampshire a modest target of just 126, despite the efforts of Luke Wright (84) and Ben Brown (52).
DERBYSHIRE (86 & 232-2) bt KENT (205 & 112) by 8 wickets
It had been a low-scoring game and after their shocking first innings total the Derbyshire batsmen finally got their heads down and cruised to victory by eight wickets.
Benjamin Slater fell cheaply on Monday as they chased a second innings target of 231 for victory and although Chesney Hughes was bowled out six runs short of his century the visitors eased over the finish line before lunch.
Matt Hughes battled desperately to add to his two wickets, but left-hander Billy Godleman produced a fine knock of 82 off 171, supported by Sri Lankan Tillakaratne Dilshan who didn't mess about with 27 off 28, to secure the win.
SURREY (261 & 284) bt LEICESTERSHIRE (190 & 177) by 178 runs
A burst of three wickets in the first two overs after lunch put Surrey on their way to a stunning three-day victory over Leicestershire at Grace Road.
Leicestershire were set a target of 356 for victory but never looked like getting close to that total, with Tom Curran (5-53) causing the most damage to the scorecard.
Surrey added 144 runs in the morning with Steven Davies finishing up on an unbeaten 47, supported nicely by Chris Tremlett (19) as they racked up a second innings total of 284.
GLOUCESTERSHIRE (277) v LANCASHIRE (275 & 231-7)
16:52: Lancashire are compiling a strong lead at Bristol, despite losing Paul Horton (6) and South African Alviro Petersen (6) during a slow start. Karl Brown gently compiled 56 from 181 balls and Ashwell Prince added 43 before being run out.
Craig Miles, who took 5-61 in the first innings, has continued that form and currently has 3-49.
NORTHAMPTONSHIRE (444) v ESSEX (276 & 204-3)
16:42: Essex are fighting back after Richard Levi's epic 168 helped Northants to 444 in their first innings at Wantage Road.
Tom Westley has starred with the bat for Essex, his unbeaten 121 including 21 boundaries after Jaik Mickleburgh survived just eight balls before falling lbw to Rory Kleinveldt without scoring.
