1046: Wicket at Taunton as Ben Phillips is trapped lbw by Tom Smith. Somerset 370-9 and now looking unlikely to claim a fifth batting bonus point.

Wicket falls
1039: The first wicket of the day goes down, with Ben Wright falling to Chris Tremlett at The Oval. Glamorgan 73-3.

1034: We've resumed in all four of our Division Two games.

1033: It turns out that Brophy did not actually drop Read (see 1024). The umpire mistakenly gave runs when it should have gone down as four byes. The mistake has been amended and Read has lost four from his score.

1030: Under way at Trent Bridge and Canterbury.

From Ian in the TMS inbox: "Will Gerard Brophy's dropped catch off Chris Read late last night be the decisive twist on where the championship is heading?"
The bell has gone at Trent Bridge, so we'll soon find out.

1024: Does anyone else think it's ridiculous that three of the teams in the Clydesdale Bank 40 semi-finals have got nine scheduled days of cricket out of 10? The finalists could have 10 in 12.

BBC Radio Kent's Peter Guise at Canterbury: "Weather set fair at Canterbury for what could be a decisive day's play. With two days to go, there will be a result."

1015: In other news, Gloucestershire have signed Durham all-rounder Will Gidman and Northants have released three players.

BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle at Trent Bridge: "Bright, sunny conditions this morning, so we'll be underway on time. Off-park news from here today is that Bilal Shafayat and Matt Wood are being released at the end of the season."

BBC London's Mark Church at The Oval: "Good news. Blue sky, sun and still plenty of cricket left in this game."

1000: Right then, where are we? Nottinghamshire's second-day fightback has rekindled their hopes of winning the title with a game to spare, but Somerset and Yorkshire will still have a thing or two to say about that. Kent and Hampshire continue to slug it out at the bottom of Division One, Sussex are up, Essex are down and Glamorgan are still favourites to take the second promotion spot. Everybody got that? Then let's begin...
