Reserve bowling attack?? The only "reserve" is Coad and he's now first on the team sheet. This attack routed Warwickshire last week.

It was tongue in cheek, "weakened" better.

Weakened or not, it's our batsmen who are losing us the game. Lyth has had an awful game.

Yes, when you look at the batting line-ups of the 1st Division sides, with one notable exception, ours is the second worse after Warwickshire.

I'd just like to add my support to those who don't see time away from the wicket as an acceptable excuse for a weak contribution. With an 82-year-old's memory that balances the absence of an 80-second one, I think back to February 1948, when Len Hutton got an urgent phone call asking him if he could fly to the West Indies, where his fellow countrymen were having an unexpectedly hard time.

Hutton hadn't played since the Scarborough Festival FIVE MONTHS EARLIER, but 4 or 5 days later took the train from a bitterly cold and snowy Leeds for Heathrow, where in those pre-jet travel days he boarded a plane to Portugal, then another to West Africa, then Brazil, and finally one to British Guiana, where a couple of days after this 4-day journey, he stepped into as contrasting a climate as you could think of, and scored a century. More runs were to follow.

So could we ease up, please, on blaming the Lords hierarchy, and excusing the current players, when the latter show up but let down the side?

I feel that is extremely harsh CS.

Cherry picking one incident by one of the acknowledged greats of the game to justify accusing England's top two run scorers of 2016, when one of them played almost non stop, in all 3 formats, of lettin g the side down is, to me, harsh and unfair.

In Joe's case, the fact that he played throughout the year and did so well, yet falls twice cheaply after not playing for a long period, serves only to emphasis the need for time in the middle.

Let's see whether Jonny lets Yorkshire down in the 2nd innings.

I'm sure he will never have been accused of that before.

There's no excuse for such ineptitude, some of our batsmen need to show more resilience and intelligence. Lyth needs a stint in the seconds to help recover his form or with motivation

The people who have said our batting line up is weak are talking nonsense. Yes they have had a real bad match and I'm really disappointed in the team, but the line up of Lyth, Lees, Root, Ballance, Handscomb and Bairstow is a great top 6. So who would you drop and bring in?

No one Gavin, that is the problem, as there is no one as good in the second team.

Today's line up is not our normal top 6 - only 1 more CC match this season (V Surrey) for Joe & Jonny. I still believe our normal top 6 is the second worst in this Division.
