Only 15 overs were possible at Headingley on the second day between Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire, with the home side looking for a win to survive relegation. Play didn't start until 13.30BST and Yorkshire quickly lost their last two wickets, with Charlie Shreck finishing with 4 for 63. Nottinghamshire moved to 21 without loss when bad light and drizzling rain forced the players off the pitch.

James Hildreth pounded a career-best 227 on the third day at Taunton as Somerset declared on 625 for 8 against Northamptonshire. Hildreth, resuming on 119, crashed 31 fours and three sizes in his 269-ball innings. Andy Caddick clobbered 28 from 21 and Will Durston batted cautiously for his 73 before Ian Blackwell, Somerset's captain, declared. In reply Northamptonshire raced to 78 from just 15 overs, but they still have a mountain to climb.
