Alastair Cook leads Essex’s victory bid at Somerset with an outstanding century at Taunton.
Keaton Jennings, Cook's latest England opening partner, on 82 out of 201 for 7 for Durham – but three wickets for Jake Ball have kept Nottinghamshire on course for a second consecutive win before rained stopped play
Near misses at the Ageas Bowl. Michael Carberry falls agonisingly short (on 98) of his first Championship century since he was diagnosed with cancer last summer while Rilee Rossouw, batting with a damaged finger, is run out for 99.
Warwickshire's top order is blown away between the showers at Edgbaston as Ben Coad again gets into the wickets after Yorkshire's lower order extends their lead over 200
Lancashire's left-arm spinners, Simon Kerrigan and Stephen Parry, halt the scoring then make inroads against Surrey at The Oval.
Worcestershire beat Glamorgan with Josh Tongue, a 19-year-old who is the latest graduate of their prolific Academy, taking 5 for 45 on his first-class debut.

Let's write George's last-day report for him so he doesn't have to go.
CHOICE OF 3:
1. Warwickshire lasted a mere eight balls on an Easter Monday that in truth shouldn't have seen any cricket, after the rather strange decision to go off for bad light with two spinners bowling the previous evening. There was to be no unlikely resurrection either - Ben Coad added his eleventh wicket to go with his hugely impressive display against Hampshire - here, truly, is a seamer worthy of note in English conditions - when Jeetan Patel flashed a drive to Lyth at slip. In front of the groundstaff and maybe a passing crow or two, Warwickshire subsided to their lowest total in over a decade - a worrying trend has already been established and it's hard to see how they'll turn it around.
2. HOLY ****! Oliver Hannon-Dalby hits DOUBLE HUNDRED at NUMBER ELEVEN as Warwickshire ROAR BACK INTO CONTENTIO
