Cloudy morning in Manchester (not surprisingly perhaps..).
If i was the captain i'd certainly want to bowl today - and i could imagine Ryan Sidebottom with four wickets by lunch...

Just sat down after ridiculous wait at ticket office. Yorkshire to bat. Astonishing.

Looking upwards it doesn't look like a batting day, obviously Ballance saw something different on inspection of the pitch. Looking at the forecast tomorrow may be even worse overhead conditions.

10-2. Not looking like a batting day indeed.

Seriously, it's time for a spell out of the team for Lyth. And now Lees gone as I type! Time for the captain to justify his decision.
