Does Middlesex being AO without a batting point make us safe?

If Middlesex pull it round and win, Somerset go down.
If it is a draw, Somerset go down.
If Somerset win, Middlesex take the drop.

Hampshire would have to mess up big time at Edgbaston to even be worried, so I have not factored them in.

I am not clairvoyant, but I do not foresee a staged finish this year

If you register on the Essex website there's a live stream on the game. Apologies if this is old news. Linked up to the commentary as well.
And Glenn McGrath dismissed for 2 just 98 runs short of his century.

Very much a case of men vs boys, I'm afraid.

Now about our "batting."

I wonder what we would have scored if Essex hadn't cheated and pressured the umpires to change a perfectly decent ball.

Looking on the bright side, we have scored a ton and easily avoided the follow on 😀

Probably about the same Gavin give or take a single or two, it's not the batting that's an issue, we just need our attack to keep pulling even more rabbits out of the hat.

I am sorry Gavin, but this kind of comment would be relevant if a collapse to 99-9 was a rarity. There always seems to be people on here willing to provide excuses for yet another collapse. Or 'whataboutery' is tried - e.g. no-one is scoring well in the CC at the moment, not just us.

We have a batting problem. Period.

Agree that we have a batting problem. And a bowling problem. But I don't think we have a wicket-keeping problem - or if we do, it's way down the list of priorities!
