9pm - Below are the results from today's six matches:

Group A

Muhammad Azhar Ullah returned fine figures of 5-38 to help dismiss Hampshire for 249 at the Ageas Bowl. However, rain prevented Northants Steelbacks from starting their run-chase.

Gloucestershire were 55 for one when their clash with Essex at the Essex County Ground was abandoned due to the elements.

Group B

Paul Collingwood and Graham Onions, who delivered a triple-wicket maiden over, both snared four scalps as Durham defeated Glamorgan by 53 runs at the SWALEC Stadium.

A half-century from Chris Nash proved in vain as Sussex Sharks lost to Middlesex Panthers by 21 runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method at the County Ground.

8.48pm - RESULT! Durham beat Glamorgan by 53 runs at the SWALEC Stadium. Collingwood and Onions finish with four wickets apiece as the former dismisses James Harris to end Glamorgan's innings on 133. That is some effort by the visitors to defend 185.

Yorkshire started well after the rain break but Andrew Gale has been bowled for 10, 140 needed off 108 deliveries.

4.51pm -  A crucial innings of 49 from Stokes has comes to an end. Crucial for the team, but also for him personally, having seen the troubles he was having a few weeks ago. He's helped the score up to 171 in the 41st over, but is soon followed back by John Hastings, who is out second ball.

Wood doesn't last long for Hampshire, but he got a handy 18 before becoming Maurice Chambers' second wicket.

4.44pm - Eight overs to go at the Ageas Bowl, and Hampshire have been held back by the quick flurry of wickets. Liam Dawson and Chris Wood are both capable of quick runs however and will pose a threat to the Northants bowlers.

Azhar Ullah has got Michael Bates out first a first-ball duck, his third of the innings.

4.23pm -  Ben Brown is run out for nine at Hove. Could the loss of wickets at regular intervals prevent them from posting as high a score as they had threatened?

Keaton Jennings has fallen for a duck as the Durham slump continues.

4.07pm - Cachopa nicks behind to the part-time spin of Dawid Malan for 24.

The Durham collapse is well and truly on as Scott Borthwick is the latest victim, they're now rather precariously placed at 129 for five.

3.58pm - Sussex are well placed for the final 20 overs, with Craig Cachopa and Matt Machan settling themselves in before the powerplay comes. They are 160 for three.

Paul Collingwood has been in great form so far in this tournament, with two fifties and a century already, but has gone for just one, as Hogan gets his third victim. Ben Stokes is the not out batsman at the other end.

Will Smith becomes the second Hampshire batsman to reach a half-century today, with Hampshire 170 for three after 34 overs.

3.39pm - Calum MacLeod and Phil Mustard put on 101 for the second wicket in Cardiff, but the Scotland international has been trapped in front by the spin of Dean Cosker. Just over 20 overs gone for Durham.

Michael Lumb has got the Outlaws innings moving despite losing his opening partner. He's scored a flurry of boundaries off Doug Bollinger.

3.34pm - Nash and Joyce have gone in quick succession for Sussex, while Notts' Sam Kelsall has also been sent walking back to the changing rooms.

3.11pm - The players have been sent scurrying at Grace Road, with the home side well in front on Duckworth-Lewis. Now that they have played for 10 overs in the second innings, there will a result one way or another, and Yorkshire need to be on 57, they are 27 for two.

Sussex have gone past 100 in the 18th over, with Chris Nash reaching 50.

2.59pm - Lyth skies the ball but it only gets as far as first slip, who takes a running catch. It looks like it could be a struggle for the Vikings, they are 20 for two after eight overs.

Jimmy Adams goes at the Ageas Bowl as Muhammad Azhar Ullah gets the first wicket of the day on the south coast.

2.47pm - Gloucestershire and Essex are the latest sides to fall foul of the weather.

2.34pm - Michael Carberry threatens briefly for Hampshire but is gone in the ninth over, caught on the boundary.

Chris Nash and Ed Joyce have picked up where Wright left off, with the Sharks moving past 50 in the ninth over.

There's a big breakthrough for the Foxes at Grace Road. The dangerous opening partnership of Adam Lyth and Alex Lees has been broken, with Lees edging Charlie Shreck behind.

2.12pm - David Masters gets a breakthrough in the very first over for Essex, but it's thanks to the brilliance of James Foster who stumps Hamish Marshall.

Luke Wright began at a canter at the County Ground, but his fun has been ended on 14, trapped lbw by Toby Roland-Jones.

2.01pm - Michael Hogan removes Durham skipper Mark Stoneman with the second ball of the match. 

There's rain in Nottingham though, a pity considering the form of the two sides involved.

1.39pm - Fisher bowls the penultimate over at Grace Road, but Leicestershire take to the 16-year-old as it costs 15 runs. Raine cleared the ropes again.

1.37pm - It is clearly a bat-first day as that is the consensus amongst the county captains, apart from Ryan ten Doeschate at the Essex County Ground. Sussex Sharks, Notts Outlaws, Durham and Hampshire have all whacked the pads straight on.


1.18pm - The 44th over from Pyrah costs 15. Ben Raine does almost all the damage with a six and a pair of fours. Leicestershire need this acceleration.

1.08pm -  In one of the 2pm starts, Mark Turner is in the Northants squad to face Hampshire after completing a loan move from Derbyshire .

The 54-run partnership at Grace Road is brought to an end by Pyrah, who gets Wells for 24.

12.57pm - Brooks has finished his bowling for the day, with figures of 10-2-26-2, he's helped restrict the hosts to 149 for six with 12 overs to go.

However a good partnership between Tom Wells and Matthew Boyce will have given the Foxes some hope. Boyce has gone past 50.

12.24pm - Another big wicket has gone down at Grace Road, and it's the New Zealander Scott Styris who has been dismissed. Fisher gets his first of the day after the Foxes skipper looked to be aggressive.

12.08pm -  Shiv Thakor is the latest man to go as Rich Pyrah gets in on the act, knocking back the off stump.

12.01pm - The stumping was actually carried out by Andrew Hodd, but it's another useful scalp for the visitors, who are picking up regular wickets to check the progress of the Foxes.

11.42am - Adil Rashid is brought into the attack by Andrew Gale, and gets a wicket with his second ball. A loopy full toss is hit by Niall O'Brien straight to Kane Williamson on the midwicket boundary. 68 for three.

11.25am - Brooks has been told he can take a break after an opening spell that read 7-1-15-2. Adam Lyth takes up the attack with 16-year-old seamer Matthew Fisher and the Foxes are 51 for two after 15 overs.

11.05am - The 10-over powerplay is done and Leicestershire are 28 for one. It has been hard going for the hosts in overcast early-morning conditions. Jack Brooks and the in-form Tim Bresnan have bowled well too.

10.30am - Yorkshire have won the toss at Grace Road and, having named an unchanged side from yesterday's convincing win, have chosen to bowl first once again.
