Tim Wigmore at Middlesex 189-1 v Durham
Well played Nick Compton, who has enjoyed some luck, including two dropped chances, but played with skill and fortitude to bring up a half-century, his first since the Durban Test last year, some 232 days ago. It has been a vital innings for Middlesex, too, helping to manoeuvre themselves into a position of overwhelming superiority against Durham, who have again bowled admirably without reward. Nick Gubbins, particularly proficient driving through point and clipping the ball to midwicket, will lunch 13 shy of a hundred: he is an immensely impressive cricketer.

Warwickshire 91-3 v Surrey 252
Surrey made inroads into Warwickshire's first innings on the second morning of their Specsavers County Championship match at Edgbaston as the Bears reached 91 for three in reply to Surrey's 252.
Having been saved an awkward three overs batting last night by bad light, Warwickshire began their innings this morning and were put under immediate pressure by accurate opening spells from Tom and Sam Curran.
Tom was rewarded by the wicket of Varun Chopra who, on eight, edged to Jason Roy at second slip.
Ian Westwood and Jonathan Trott added 40 from 15 overs before both fell in the space of nine balls from Stuart Meaker.
Trott, on 13, edged an attempted cut and wicketkeeper Steven Davies parried the ball to Kumar Sangakkara at skip. Westwood, who had taken 25 balls to get off the mark, reached 45 (92 balls, nine fours) then edged to Roy in the cordon.
