In the first innings, Kent were bowled out for 232 with both Zak Crawley and Jack Leaning making contributions. Leicestershire struggled in their first innings and were bowled out for 108. Darren Stevens then put Kent in a commanding position in the game, scoring 107* (70).

Essex defeated Glamorgan by an innings and 74 runs to move to the top of Division 2. Glamorgan finished their first innings all out for 134, with Shane Snater dominating them from the offset. Snater finished with figures of 11.5-5-39-6. Nick Browne made a magnificent century from 223 balls to help put Essex in the driving seat.

Sam Cook then took 5-37 to help Essex to a comprehensive victory. 

Notts win big in Taunton 

Somerset won the toss and decided to field but soon grew to rue that decision. Nottinghamshire put on a big first innings total thanks to a 121-ball century from Liam Patterson-White and half-centuries from Luke Fletcher and Joe Clarke. The Notts bowling attack terrorised Somerset and bowled them all out for 107. Nottinghamshire captain, Steven Mullaney, decided to enforce the follow-on which proved to be a wise decision.  The Notts bowling attack quickly reduced Somerset to 85-6 but resistance came from the Somerset tail. Jack Leach, Josh Davey and Marchant de Lange all prolonged the Somerset innings before Luke Fletcher wrapped up proceedings with the wicket of Jack Brooks. 

Middlesex secure win at Lord's 

Middlesex defeated Derbyshire by 112 runs to move top of Division Three of the County Championship. Robbie White helped Middlesex to 282 due his 121 run contribution.

Middlesex set Derbyshire 333 to win, after being bowled out for 256. Derbyshire looked to be running towards victory with Billy Goodleman and Matt Critchley scoring 70 and 58 respectively. However, Toby Roland-Jones tore through the middle order of Derbyshire to secure victory for Middlesex.
