well you say that, but we haven't had the obligatory century stand between the last recognised batsman and one of the tail enders yet

if we get one of those, this will be done and dusted by lunch tomorrow

I've just noticed that Yorks came with 5 batsmen and a keeper. Perhaps they just felt that ultimately that would be enough

I admire your optimism that it'll last that long. Admire that Yorkies appear to be reverting to old in fielding an almost entirely Yorkshire born XI.
Would Durham not have been better off by the likes of Steel S, Trevaskis, Jones been given opportunities in what is an essentially meaningless competition?

I think so. It'd seem to be the ideal opportunity to give them chances.

94 lead so far- might be enough for an innings win! A distinct possibility.

Finally out for a lead of 96. I think it is probably worth about 296. Second innings fightbacks have been a speciality but I'm on the verge of writing this off!

If their rooky last pair can last 12 overs the Yorkies will never get our lot out :hide

I suppose our inability to rattle through a tail has something to do with our lack of a spinner of any sort of quality. Hants were able to bring on Mason Crane in their game and he ran through 9, 10, Jack. We can't do that.

Maybe next year we need to sign Roston Chase to fill the Blackwell role of old..... save us every time we struggle with the bat and then help us tidy up with the ball

He'd be very handy. Uncanny how the openers - regardless of who they are - seem incapable of setting a platform in the first innings but capable of doing it in the second innings. Or is it down to batting being toughest on day 1 which further calls into question the decision to bat first. If he wins the toss in the next match it will be interesting to see what he does. Or not see what he does- we'll just hear about it!

Sides level with the side batting third losing two wickets. That's my usual formula for a game being all square.

I always say that everybody's right.

Although we need to factor in the name of the team batting 3rd...one wicket often brings about 7 more in quick succession!
