Now I am getting worried. Their two opening bowlers sat with their feet up resting, new ball, scoreboard pressure, and two of our top 6 not batted for 4 months. Fingers crossed we CAN get the draw, as not enough time left now for us to win it.

This is where we really miss Sids. Allowing 60 plus runs for the 10th wicket and more than 100 for the last two wickets is unacceptable for a team with aspirations for a title. Hopefully we can bat our way through to a draw, and earn some crucial bonus points.

The team is all over the shop this season. You never know which team will actually show up. Hopefully our two England "loaners" will come through with a couple of big scores.

At long last. Lyth hangs on for a change. Let's hope no points deduction for a slow over rate.

Only two results possible now, and a win for us is not one of them.

I agree Alex, it's very poor, seemingly a lack of invention and discipline from our attack for this to so far away from us. Hopefully we can redeem ourselves with the bat.

The more positive spin is that it's obviously still a very good batting pitch and they aren't expecting it to break up otherwise they'd have played crane. On top of that 8 of our top 9 are internationals including the 2 highest test run scorers in the world last year. Bat bat and bat some more and see what happens on day 4.

Just seen score at airport - makes grim reading. We really need our England stars to fire now after Lees/ Lyth capitulation

Thought this might happen. Scoreboard pressure and a day and a half in the field.

Lyth not only dropping catches but not scoring any runs either.

Rather than people putting blame on the ecb struppidly maybe people should be looking at the powers at Headingley and questioning them about recruitment. Even with the England players the team looks light.

I had feeling this would happen, Lyth and Lees are consistently an ineffective opening partnership and requires attention. Here's hoping Ballance and Root can restore some parity.
