Despair, Worry, Hope, Relief, all these emotions could be in play during the final day.

I know it is only a game but if we have to use them all let's hope they come in that order!

Nice existential start to the morning Geoff. The morning will be a crucial period of play, we need to show some more that grit.

Two things.

Firstly. When 'people' say the counties play too much cricket we should point out that this is the first time in 2017 that Yorkshire have played on the 4th day of a championship match. This is Yorkshire's 3rd match of the season.

Secondly, what's the weather forecast for Southampton? Could the rain help to save us or will low clouds help to scupper us?

The BBC showed Soton encircled by rain by 4.00 pm but a more localised forecast shows mostly cloudy at 11.00, shower at noon, cloudy until 3.00 then a shower and cloudy for the rest of the day.

I don't think the weather will be our saviour, dig in and hope seems to be favourite.

..and it might sound stupid - but we need to remember to score runs...
We can't survive all day - but once we're in front every run counts double.
If we're serious about winning anything this year we need to avoid defeat today...

Fully agree reference remembering to score runs.

This match has gone way too far for a JB inspired counter attack but we must get the field spread a bit and put some doubt into the bowlers minds.

Of course we must do this without giving them any chances. Cripes it's going to be a long day!

Will be checking the scores nervously today.
My instructions to the players is if you get out make sure its a good ball.
And if we lose make sure we have grafted and made Hampshire sweat every inch of the way.

We need to bat until tea atleast, simples. A 200 lead by then ideally. Handscomb must make runs today.

I wish Ballance would get runs when root and Bairstow not playing and not when they are or he risks drawing attention to the England selectors again. With Hameed not buying a run this season then some gaps may appear although Vince scoring a ton can't go unnoticed
