Not a terrible morning. Every batsmen managing to get himself in but noone progressing onto a decent score yet. Considering that the weather is forecast to be better over the next few days, and the length of our tail, the next couple of partnerships are going to vital.

Including both Coad and Shaw was surprise and Rhodes must be wondering about what he needs to do to be selected with so many of our best team not being available. We have done pretty well on first cloudy morning of the season, but the next session is going to give us better idea about the strength and depth of our batting after losing both openers. Forecast better for weekend.

Happy enough with the start on the first day but tougher tests will come

Two down at lunch after being inserted is surely a good outcome in any event. Even more so in the first game of the season. Agree that we probably need an above par innings to counteract the improving weather and a weakened attack. That said I'm not sure our bowling line up compares too badly with Hampshire from what I've seen this morning.

Right now Fidel Edwards and Gareth Berg are bowling. Both have played 99 first class matches and each have an average of exactly 31.73 (including this one). The neatness of the stats pleases me.

But not the outcome Tom, our overseas player has been bowled by Edwards. Wonder if there is movement or was it played on? And then Leaning, we need big one from Bresnan. Oh no, bowled for duck by Edwards again - send him back to the Caribbean!

Didn't know that Jonny is at the Masters (shakes head while smiling ruefully). Don't even feel angry about him not being allowed to play this time - ECB has reduced me to apathy. I live in hope that one day I will wake up and find the ECB is run by people who love the game.

Big season for Leaning. Done very little since June 2015. Can't carry him for another season. In fact, looking at the squad, every player has a lot to prove this season with the exception of Bres and Patto.

Good luck to all.
