    Happy Hampshire and sublime Stevens

    Hampshire win a thriller at Headingley and Kent tear through Gloucestershire in just 93 minutes. Take a look at all the drama on Day Three

    Four down, two to go.

    Just a couple matches remain standing after another dramatic, sun-soaked day of County Championship cricket.

    Here are all the best bits from a dramatic Day Three:

    Gone in 60 minutes 

    Nottinghamshire took less than an hour to complete a convincing 10-wicket victory over their East Midlands counterparts. Aussie paceman James Pattinson proved to be too quick for the Foxes batsman who finished the match with figures of 8-84 and 89* with the bat. What. A. Debut.

    Collapse at Canterbury 

    Approaching his 41st birthday, Darren Stevens ripped through the Gloucestershire batting lineup to claim 6/22 as the visitors were bowled out for 61 in the space of 93 minutes. Stevens' devastating spell inspired Kent to a whopping 334 run win. Clearly, there is life in the old dog yet.

    First of many

    It was a day to remember for Lancashire wicketkeeper Alex Davies as he scored his maiden first-class century to put the visitors in a commanding position going into the final day. Essex trail Lancashire by 388 runs with 8 wickets remaining; can they dig in on Monday to save the game?

    Trott stands firm

    Surrey would have expected to have this game wrapped up before the close on Day Three when they reduced the visitors to 181-6. But they didn't bank on Jonathan Trott. The Warwickshire wall had other ideas as he looked in superb touch to be 141 not out at stumps. Surrey will come back on Monday looking for the three wickets they require to complete the job. Will Mark Footitt, the hero from the first innings blow the tail away? 

    Headingley Thriller

    Trailing Yorkshire by 132 after the first innings, Hampshire produced a stunning turnaround to chase down 320 and win an epic encounter at Headingley. Jimmy Adams led the way hitting 72 and the game was sealed with a Gareth Berg six! What a start to the Specsavers County Championship season for the men from the south coast.
