Clearly no deal between Northeast and Collingwood to contrive a finish at the Riverside. Durham have scored one run in the first two overs!

Good call, though, bestie. They're off for rain after just 10 mins play at Northampton!

The key game is at Trent Bridge. If the rain stays away long enough for Worcs to complete a victory, it will be very difficult for any of the chasing pack to catch Notts and Worcs.

Just 74 needed with 8 wickets in hand for Worcestershire. Would think they'll knock those off unless there's a washout within the next 20 minutes. Sussex might hang around to make the chase interesting - especially if the rain dance works - but really Sussex or Northants will need to win all their remaining games (both of whom have to play Notts, of course) to have a chance of upsetting the applecart.

This pause means that Archer remains not out, and is currently located just between Joe Clarke and Cameron Steel in Division 2's batting averages at 45 to go with his 55 wickets at 23.

In the important game at Trent Bridge, Worcester completed an 8 wicket win in fine style thanks to an excellent ton from Daryl Mitchell. Chris Read's final appearance at the ground adding to the emotion.

Daryl Mitchell's 6th century of the season with just 2 50s. Conversion rate like that is what we need in the test side. Get him working with Root!

Deserved win from Worcs keep the "title" race interesting but it may have killed the chase for the top 2. I can't see Worcs taking less than 30 points from the last two games and I think Notts will do enough.

Don't really understand Jacques Rudolph carrying on playing for Glamorgan in these final Championship matches (he just scored 0 by the way). You can't let sentiment get in the way - it's wasting an ideal opportunty for a youngster to have three matches and take that experience with them into the winter.

Can anyone explain the point of playing five seamers?

Both Kent and Sussex have dropped their spinners for today's game and picked five seamers.

If your top four seamers can't do the job, the fifth choice isn't going to make any difference - and a spinner, however damp and green the conditions, offers something different.

Even if the spinner doesn't take wickets, he can usually introduce a bit of control at one end - and get the over rate up. Both Middx and Northants were docked points last week for a slow over rate...

I cannot see any justification ever for five seamers. Can anyone tell me why I'm wrong?

Only scenarios I can see it being worthwhile are 1.) if a couple of the bowlers aren't 100% so will only bowl short bursts, so it's effectively a 4-man attack and 2.) if at least one of the seamers also happens to be a key batsman. In either instance I'd still tend to jettison one of the five for a spinner - how often do you have a pitch where you think "god 4 seamers isn't enough"?

As a Sussex fan I'm fed up of them opting to bowl first too, let alone the 5 seamers. Although it should be pointed out that these 'seamers' are arguably some of our better batsmen.

The delicious irony is that having gone with five seamers, Kent have so far only managed 3 wkts in 72 overs - and two of those have fallen to the part-time leg-spin of Joe Denly!

The problems of playing wayward young bowlers with a bit of pace but no control: the Sussex rookie Stu Whittingham broke Billy Godelman's hand and ended his season yesterday with a beamer.

I suppose if you don't play him in the CC he'd only go and break someone's hand in a second XI game and if he doesn't get a taste of top level cricket one will never know if he's got what it takes to learn more control.

So it's a conundrum...

Whar are the laws on beamers - is it a warning after one and out of the attack after a second?

I believe that is the ruling, yes.

Thankfully it's rare and even rarer to end like this. I suppose the silver lining is that at least it happened now and not in April.

I got a beamer in the nets some years ago and my thumbnail came off after some weeks and a new one grew...

Why is Wood not playing? I thought he was left out of the ODI side to get first class cricket ahead of the Ashes.

Same with Crane, also not playing.

Wood - bruised heel.

Crane was in sqaud but looks like simply not selected.

Bruised heel again. He played in the last game on Sept 8.

Northants in a strong position against Notts. Should they win, they will put Notts under a spot of pressure. Notts should still make it, but Northants will fancy themselves to beat Leicestershire next week. Notts go to Sussex.

Would be interesting (apart from for Notts fans) for it to go to the last round.
