Tim Wigmore at Sussex 270-2 v Derbyshire
Sussex will have few easier days than this. At times, this day has felt as uncompetitive as when Pranav Dhanawade, the 15-year-old from Mumbai, struck 1000 in an innings in January. Having reached his century by waltzing down the pitch and launching Madsen over extra cover for six, Joyce fell rather tamely soon after, caught at leg slip attempting to flick the ball to the legside. It mattered little, though: Ross Taylor has arrived, announcing himself with a coruscating pull off another Taylor, Tom while Luke Wells, normally renowned for austere defence, is entering into the spirit and lofted Madsen over long on for six. Sussex already have a lead of 120, and that could be doubled by the close at this rate.

Jon Culley at Notts v Durham 143-4
As the grey cloud that has weighed heavily over Trent Bridge clears to reveal a pleasant, sunny evening, Notts are in a strong position, coming back with three wickets after tea, all of them to Jackson Bird, who is taking a breather now with figures of 4-41 from 11 overs. The Aussie took wickets with his first two balls after the interval. Mark Stoneman fell to a dismissal that might have been mistaken for an action replay of Keaton Jennings's demise, Samit Patel taking a near-identical catch at short midwicket to pretty much the same shot, then new batsman Jack Burnham was plumb leg before to a ball that kept a touch low.
Michael Richardson survived the hat-trick ball, which drew an optimistic appeal from Bird but looked to be going down leg side, but has since seen his off stump knocked back. Durham, still the best part of 400 behind, now need Borthwick to maintain his good form with the bat. He has Paul Collingwood at the other end to provide steady support and knowing advice.
