everyone now talking about the lost bonus point.

We really should have made more of an effort to get it, but had i said that then, no doubt would have been shouted down.

Looks like Lyth/Lees & Co can fill their boots and improve their averages against 60-odd overs of spin - cannot see Lancs bothering to exert Bailey & McLaren after the shine has gone from the new ball.

Only 21 overs bowled this morning in 90 minutes despite Rafiq bowling from one end??

I've not bothered attending today. I doubt there will be 100 people in the ground - there was hardly anyone there yesterday when the game was, potentially, interesting.

I have never seen so few Yorkshire supporters at a game of cricket anywhere.

Blame the Lancashire groundsman - if Brookes can score a century and players like Parry, Bailey and Kerrigan score runs with ease, it tells you all you need to know.

Check the Old Trafford championship scores in the last 4/5 matches of last season - the bowlers of title hopefuls Yorkshire, Somerset and Middlesex in successive OT matches were tearing their hair out in frustration (same in years gone by for great bowlers like Wasim Akram, Michael Holding and Jimmy Anderson - all made to look ordinary by Old Trafford "roads".

Lancashire were undefeated in 7 games at OT last season (they never looked like losing a game) but we all know how bad they were away from home - they nearly got relegated again.

Yeah - I thought that was odd too.
I suspect Yorkshire numbers were down because of Rugby League on TV all day and worries about getting stuck in football traffic at the end of the day.

Its hard not to be impressed by Old Trafford these days. The new buildings complement the old very well i think - and the new hotel looks stunning.
It got me thinking about Headingley Lodge - does that appear in our accounts anywhere? Do we make money out of the hotel these days or does that still go to Caddick..?

Agree, Peter: once again we seem to be uninterested in stretching ourselves to snatch bonus points.

Agreed, there seems to be too much of a tendency to believe that upping the rate automatically means we will lose wickets and get a below par score.
Call for TKC..

Lancashire in danger of gaining a first innings lead!

Kerrigan?

It's odd that wickets fall to the first new ball, both teams' first innings, but the second new ball, taken against supposedly lesser batsmen, hardly troubles them. It's a pattern we've seen in previous games, too.

Yes, the pitch does look very flat and slow and non-spinning. Or perhaps it's the bowlers who are non-spinners. Neither side has any pace at its disposal, and there seems to have been no swing, with new ball or old.

And yet, I attended Lancs against Somerset, earlier this season, an outstanding game of cricket by any standard. Bowlers were on top in 1st and 4th innings, batsmen had some fun in the middle part. The ideal pitch, except spin played little part on it.

Let's hope for a better surface, and a much bigger crowd, at Headingley for the return.

Lyth has missed his chance for a "net" for a couple of hrs. His poor form continues. it`s becoming a concern now.
