I hope Liam does get a go in India – he might not be high profile but that doesn’t mean he can’t be successful at international level.” Whether a debut follows in the next three weeks or not, Dawson ’s promotion to the senior setup caps a remarkable surge up the ranks by a cricketer who only midway through last season moved to Essex on loan after being frozen out of Hampshire ’s plans in the NatWest T20 Blast.

Lancashire picked up a slender six-run win in a high-scoring thriller against Durham, keeping themselves on track for the quarterfinals, and knocking out the opposition of the race in the bargain. Opting to bat, Lancashire would've been thrilled to finish with 199 on the board on the back of fifties Naveen-ul-Haq and skipper Colin Ackermann dented the middle and top orders respectively with three-wicket hauls, but Ben Duckett resisted with a handy 45 that took Nottinghamshire to 173 before they were bowled out. Leicestershire lost wickets regularly in their chase but were in a spot of bother

After bowling out the hosts for 178 following a delayed start, Liam Patterson-White with five for 41, the visitors were 46 for one at tea only to be bundled out for 127 on a dramatic day in Southampton.

The win left Hampshire in position to seal a first championship title since 1973 when they play Lancashire at Liverpool starting next Tuesday.

Lancashire kept their flickering title hopes alive by completing a 10-wicket thrashing of Somerset before lunch on the third day at Taunton.

The home side could add only 88 to their overnight second-innings score of 226 for four before being bowled out for 314, avoiding an innings defeat but setting Lancashire only 32 to win.

Title- chasing Lancashire are on top at Liverpool thanks to some aggressive batting from openers Paul Horton, who scored a superb 96 off 137 balls, and Stephen Moore either side of tea. But relegation-threatened Hampshire are likely to chase whatever total they are set, as they look to win their fourth match in five and keep up their defiant battle against the drop. Horton and Moore shared their highest opening partnership of the summer, 168 inside 45 overs, although there was frustration for Horton when he fell for the fourth time in the nineties in the current campaign.

  JPMorgan launching Chase with aim of toppling Britain's big banks The arrival of the Americans in the British current account market is a landmark moment. And Chase's boss Sanoke Viswanathan is under no illusions about his parent company's ultimate goal.In fact, only Santander, Nationwide Building Society and digital newbies Monzo, Starling and Revolut can claim any real success in luring customers away from their much larger rivals. And even then, it has been a triumph of relatively small proportions: ultimately the 'big four' still control a colossal seven in ten personal current accounts.

Abbott and Dawson bowl Hampshire to 270-run victory over Notts. Middlesex beat Northants by 31 runs despite following on. Sussex beat Derbyshire by 243 runs after Ben Slater retires hurt. Skipper Billy Godleman, who scored an excellent century in the first innings, was the first man to go, losing his leg stump, and then in the next over Wayne Madsen was plumb lbw to Chris Jordan for a duck. Sussex tails are up as they look for the win that will take them back to second in the Division Two table.

Lancashire are in control at Taunton, but Somerset are showing plenty of fight in their second innings as they try to keep their hopes alive. We'll be back with you tomorrow for the third day's play. If the weather is kind, it should be a cracker. Hampshire were 28-4 in their second innings, but skipper James Vince made 52 in a stand of 82 with Liam Dawson and Barker was 11 not out at the close. Notts won't want this lead to get much larger - the chase is already going to be a tough one, with so much at stake.

Resuming on 224 for four, the visitors picked up maximum batting points on a day when their lower order came up trumps with 195 runs for the last five wickets.

Leading the way was Tom Price, whose 71 included nine fours and took his team past Glamorgan’s first-innings total of 309 at 419 all out to leave the home side with a mountain to climb.

Derbyshire v Kent, Leicestershire v Sussex, Middlesex v Worcestershire, Northamptonshire v Durham and Surrey v Essex all saw no play possible on Tuesday due to the rain.
