Over half-way through the season and the championship by no means decided. The weather decimated the opening fixtures but, to hold their places, the leading counties must maintain the high standard one-day cricket demands. Commentators PETER WALKER CHRISTOPHER MARTIN-JENKINS

The Flowering of Britain
An exploration with Richard Mabey
Why are birthwort, milkwort and the primrose so named? Why do we find sheets of bluebells in some woods and not in others? Why do poppies suddenly appear on newly turned ground?
RICHARD MABEY guides us through the countryside from the Dales to Devon, from Kent to the New Forest. He tells us a new and intriguing story about the 5,000-year-old partnership between ourselves and our flora, and how we've taken them into our medicine chests, gardens, into children's stories, adult myths and religion,
