With little information to goo off since i'm not there, I don't think we're doing too bad getting two wickets before lunch and keeping their run rate down given the heat conditions. They haven't got much batting to come but it can't be easy fielding in this heat.

Might be worth a go with Rashid? Wish I was there - almost came, but in the end work commitments (and promised jobs around the house won out) - will be doing days in Scarborough in exchange

Just had an hour in the garden hoping some more wickets would be down, there must be one due very soon ....The usual Yorkshire practice of letting two batsmen get well established before bowling Rashid or spin, wonder why they play them 🙁

Looks like a long afternoon in the field with little reward. 33 degrees now, just glad I'm in an office with good A/C

Dead flat wicket and a very hot day in the field, as I said earlier, not a toss to lose and have to bowl.

I would have bowled Rashid earlier, but to be honest, I have every faith in Balance. He is shaping up to be an excellent captain. He plays it as he sees it - just a shame that Middx produce such roads. How they managed to get so many results last season is a miracle

Pretty uninspiring pitch, mirroring their style. Need something a bit special from our attack here.

Martin, I believe they only got 1 positive result at Lords lat seasonn, which was against us, all the rest were draws. There other wins came away from home. I will check!

looks like they bat till tea tomorrow and get 500. We bat till lunch on Thursday and get 500. Match drawn at 4.50 on Thursday. Scoreboard pressure could win them the match, but my money is a rock solid draw.

Thanks Stu - I was going to check that too - I was thinking that this might be the case as soon as I posted it.
