Weather is set fair, sun out but cold this morning. Forecast looks good until about 1600.

Looks like a draw - unless Ryan can take six wickets in his first four overs.
Which isn't impossible.

Having allowed them to take the third bowling point, we need to press on for our fifth. We must assume the draw, while pressing for the win, and remember that all points count (as the TESCO self-service machine endlessly, irritatingly, reminds us!)

Just nipped out for a fag break here in York. By God its cold. Serious question- have any professional cricketers ever had to be treated after suffering from hypothermia?
And before anyone says it: I discount Chris Old.

From this entertaining piece on extreme weather:

http://www.espncricinfo.com/magazine/co ... 99859.html


"On the third day of Essex's match at Fenners on April 24, 1981, the umpires took the players from the field because of the biting cold that made the ball all but impossible to grip. Movement was hampered by everyone wearing several layers of sweaters, and it was so cold that Cambridge University's captain, Derek Pringle, could not see because his eyes were streaming so much - he still made 66. The problem was caused by a freezing south-easterly wind and the umpires invoked a new Law (included in the 1980 code) which allowed them to stop play in "extreme conditions". To everyone's relief, rain washed the day's play out after an early lunch."

Well...if they're gonna get that 5th bonus point, they might have to chuck the bat a bit. They needed 32 from 33 balls overnight.

They now need 25 from 16...

Unless they think this last pair can score 450 by batting sensibly.

OK, so that was taken out of our hands by Woakes.

Now time for our boys to have a go.

Not sure what that was all about this morning, except that they will need a few more now to avoid follow on or it is so cold they liked dressing room better!

Declaring at 350-8 just to deprive Warwicks of a bonus point might have been regarded as an extraordinary declaration contrary to ECB rules for the Championship.
Not worth running the risk of a points deduction. Also it would just lead to retaliation in this game or future games between the sides.
