Radar suggests some rain in Eastleigh within an hour; maybe intermittent for a while.
Rate of rain progress across the country might result in play at Birmingham by mid to late afternoon.

"Typical of our lads I'm afraid" - is that the back to back county champions you're referring to, Peter?

with regards to the over rate, all sorts of allowances are found especially in weather interrupted games. if we are only one over behind i would think we might be ok.

yes, thats right seadog.

But as i have explained before, in the last 2 seasons we were head and shoulders above everyone else.

we would win matches by an innings or 300 runs or so.

This season we have not dominated as many games. When we do we win, but to win the title we need to win close games, games where we do not necessarily dominate, games like this one or the lancs game or the hants game at headingley or even the durham game.

Last season we did not need to win games like that cos we would dominate and win easily more games to compensate.

if we are to win the league this season we need to manufacture some of our wins, and we do not even try to do that, always happy to take the draw and move on to the next game in the hope we can dominate that.

We may yet win the league by dominating our 2 upcoming home games (weather permitting), but these half chances that we do not buy a ticket for could yet cost us the title.

Rain will end this match at tea, if bad light does not do that first. Thats an almost certainty.

Therefore we need to declare sometime around now if we are gonna give ourselves a chance to win.

Of course we won't, we will take yet another draw and move on. Why? we cannot lose this match, and would still have 50 overs perhaps to try bowl hants out. We have a great bowling attack, why not give them a chance to win us the game?

Rain about 20 minutes away according to the rain radar, but looks like a shower so may get back on after lunch.
