Draw is the favourite. Our only real chance is if we get them to follow on and if Anderson isn't available, that means 3 quick wickets.

You sense a Brooks special is needed where he goes on the rampage...

I know people would expect me to say this - but i can just sniff an unlikely victory today....
I fancy an early morning blitz.
I was there yesterday - we seemed to lose our aggression in the afternoon session - it felt like we all believed that a Chanderdpaul century was somehow inevitable. Other than that - we were very impressive for the first half of the day..

Hope springs eternal yet again.

We should know how it's going to go fairly early on.

Hope we at least get the final bowling point to give us 10 from the match.

Hate for them to come out of it with more points than us.

Agree with you Steve. It just seemed we had gone to sleep, wasting overs and time waiting in hope for second new ball. It was not as though our four seamers were tired after long day and many overs. It was OK to us Rafiq/spinner at one end but we needed to try to get wickets with time at a premium. I hope Sidebottom, Coad and/or Brooks and Bresnan will strike quickly and achieve the follow on, but I am not too confident that we will bowl tightly enough to get 3/4 wickets and also keep the runs under some control. Here's hoping .......

Hope for a win, but doubt it will happen, as we only have 96 overs.

The last 3 (or 4) wickets within the first 1/2 hour and we have a chance. Then it`s the follow on, and trying to get Chanderpaul out again. Not the most pleasing batsman to watch, but like a limpet when batting. Over 26000 runs and an average of 54.77 in first class cricket says it all.

Looks like we might come out of this with a point less than them. Let's get Lees and Lyth back in the middle for a few hours to work on bringing their form back.

Could well finish...Lancashire 10 points, Yorkshire 9 points. I suspect Lancs will be pleased considering they lost Anderson in the first hour of the match.

Lancs beat Somerset and had the better of their 2 other matches at Essex & Surrey.

If McLaren is 99 not out when the 9th wicket falls, would Anderson be allowed to come out with a runner?

The vagaries of CC, we end up with 1 less point than them after outplaying them for most of the match (apart from the first 1/2 hour).

Can not see Lancashire losing many matches this season with that batting line-up. Could be 10 draws or more for them this season.

Looks like the other Div 1 matches will also be drawn so nothing lost overall, apart from Essex.
