It is very overcast here. If the rain holds off (which it might??) then we could have the best of conditions for bowling and batting.
Peter, to save you the embarrassment of moaning if Yorkshire don't enforce if we restrict Durham to sub 360. The follow on target is 311.

Yes of course, thanks for that.

My only defence is that it was posted before 6am which is before my brain properly wakes up

A new dawn fades and I'm feeling pretty optimistic about retaining the title once again!

Spinners opening presumably due to grey overhead and risk of going off for bad light

Well we are probably not looking at enforcing follow up by opening with spin at both ends . They could be much nearer 311 after 10 more overs. We need early wickets ....Are we I danger of losing points for over rate?

Apparently Somerset will not be ducked points for using a worn wicket on which 38 wickets have fallen in 2 days & on which only one batsman has been able to make a 50 & he was dropped on 9 or so.
Incredible!
All down to bad batting, nothing to do with a bad pitch!

We were minus 1 at least mid-afternoon yesterday, but the light is probably a factor or more likely the fact that the new ball was due in 10 overs first thing.

Alibor - we have spin at both ends because they'll be off for bad light if seamers bowl. Not Gale's fault this time 😉

I live 2 miles from the ground and it is dark and drizzling. It was raining at 10am. I'm amazed they are playing.

Oh, they aren't.
