Who’s going down?

Yorkshire‘s nervy two-wicket chase towards Warwickshire has given them some respiration room though they nonetheless should be alert towards champions Essex. Six factors would make security sure for them no matter what occurs elsewhere.

The primary consideration can be on the Somerset-Middlesex match at Taunton. A correct relegation scrap. If Middlesex win, Somerset are down. If Somerset win and equal Middlesex’s variety of bonus factors, Somerset could be forward of Middlesex by advantage of extra wins (4 to three).

Then it is about what Hampshire do towards already relegated Warwickshire. They at present have a 13-point cushion over Somerset.

Surrey‘s victory over Somerset made them secure (and leapfrogged them into second place with simply their second win of the marketing campaign), however there may be jostling for place which is of curiosity (and worth) for second place between them and Lancashire at Previous Trafford.

Worcestershire must take simply six factors from their match towards Durham to safe promotion, whereas Nottinghamshire – who’ve stumbled when the title appeared there for the taking – must take 12 towards Sussex to take away any doubt.

Northamptonshire, although, have come up on the rails after finishing a 124-run victory towards Nottinghamshire.
