County Cricket, June 22: As it happened

Division One

Surrey are 53 for one in reply to Yorkshire’s 433 for nine on day two at Headingley.

7:15pm - RESULT! Durham Dynamos (218/4 35.2ov) beat Hampshire Royals (224/9 40ov) by six wickets at Emirates Durham ICG. Tanvir, who ends with 4-39, bowls Ben Stokes shortly before victory comes with 14 balls to spare as the hosts reach a revised target of 218 from 38 overs. Durham displace defending champions Hampshire at the top of Yorkshire Group 40 Group B.

7pm - Borthwick departs for 80 from 82 deliveries to be Tanvir’s third victim but just 17 are needed for victory.

6:30pm - Pettini is lbw to Wyatt for 72. Essex are 191 for six in response to Leicestershire’s 302.

Rain sends the players off at Derby after an over in which Peter Trego hit Tony Palladino for three fours. In fact, it’s stumps on day two with Somerset 180 for six in reply to Derbyshire’s 266.

Jim Allenby and Will Owen share a fifty partnership for Glamorgan’s eighth wicket as the visitors to New Road delay a seemingly inevitable loss.

6:24pm - Scott Borthwick joins Mustard on a half-century, his from 60 deliveries, as Durham make good progress towards their target at 132 for one in the 24th over.

The players are off for bad light at Headingley with Surrey 30 for one while there is little prospect of play at Trent Bridge where it is dark and raining.

@Yorkshireccc on Twitter: Oh no! Lyth has dropped Harinath at second slip on 18 off Sidebottom. Left-hander is living dangerously having already edged through slips.
