Tim Wigmore at Yorkshire 116-7 v Middlesex
On the day of summer solstice, the reigning county champions will surely have their first victory of the summer. But they could seldom have imagined it would be so emphatic: Yorkshire still trail by 222 runs, and its hard to imagine what’s left of their batting lasting much beyond tea. Adil Rashid played jauntily for 35 until flashing James Franklin to slip; Yorkshire needed him to score another 100 at least.
Paul Edwards at Lancashire 485-6 v Hampshire
This is already a wonderful day for Lancashire's players and spectators and it may even make this evening Members' Forum a more genial occasion than is normally the case with such gatherings. Dane Vilas is 179 not out and put on 221 for the sixth wicket with Ryan McLaren (107). Even more significantly Lancashire are building a decent lead here, one which James Anderson may be able to exploit on the fourth day if rain stays away. Berg has bowled very well for Hampshire, as has Brad Taylor.
