It`s the battle of the "overseas" players at OT. Lancashire have 4, Hampshire trump them with 5.

Can not see what is wrong with each County being allowed 1.
I wouldn't be surprised if Stoneman got the nod for England, with Jennings at three as in this match. I still have a hunch Moeen will move up to five with Rashid coming in as the primary spinner. That would of course mean no place for Ballance.

Essex and Lancs both look well-placed at the start of the fourth day's play. Watch with interest.

Don't really mind a Lancashire win, if Warwickshire can hold out, think they will need some help from the weather, that would be beneficial.

Essex and Lancashire both have their opponents in deep deep trouble.

Essex look the real deal this season, still unbeaten and looking very serious Championship contenders. They do play Middlesex next week, so perhaps we may have a truer picture then.

Down to third after todays matches are finished, but Surrey & Middlesex have a game in hand so 5th place not to far away.

Looks like Somerset & Warwickshire are going to be well adrift of the other 6 (40/50points), so unless there is a remarkable recover by either of them, those 2 will be going down.

Innings wins for Lancs, Middx and Essex due to them scoring a lot of runs and scoreboard pressure telling on the opposition. Sigh!

Hope we can get 450/500 on the board some time soon!

Given that his last five scores for them have all been in the 30's, I don't think that they will miss him too much.

Amir replaces Wagner from next week as their overseas player, so Essex will be even stronger than now.

Lancashire may well live to regret the first game of the season at Chelmsford when they decided AGAINST enforcing the follow-on after bowling Essex out for 150.

Lancs declared 3 wickets down setting Essex 480 to win (earlier declaration?), but were unable to bowl Essex out a second time - it was the nearest the leaders have been to defeat this season.
