962 runs given up by our beleaguered bowlers in the last two opposition innings (for 17 wickets.) That can't have happened too often in YCCC history.

Doesn't look like any play will be possible today with forecast showing rain so hopefully the lads can use tomorrow for much needed batting practice ....

I don't the colour of the ball is going to matter today but an ECB novelty experiment with a ball that floats might be an option.

As said before, not much chance of play today. Best case scenario, it clears up by tomorrow and with no pressure Lees is 200* by the handshake.

Looks like a day spent willing on the underdogs in the matches that do get play.

A full hand of draws with minimal batting bonus points to Essex and Maximum to us is the best we can hope for in the remainder of this round.

Assuming a full day's play tomorrow, 20 overs of joke bowling by Surrey, two innings forfeitures then a proper match?

Gary did not get much practice with batting against a pink ball and under lights. Another ECB master-plan gone wrong. Can only blame the weather this time though. They could, if they want Gary to get some practice with the pink ball, let him continue playing for us or play the Lions match with a pink ball. Are they flexible enough to do that??

After, on previous occasions, loaning England players out to other counties for match practice and bringing players in and out of county games. I am very surprised that Surrey were not told to let Yorkshire bat first and give Joe, Jonny & Gary 10 overs each of throw-downs so they could get used to the conditions!!!

According to James Whitaker's recent statement, it was more important to give Gary experience of captaining a team against an international side (or words to that effect - I quoted them on another thread). If there is a master-plan, it's a very odd one.

He did, however, get quite a lot of fielding experience. Batsmen always have a sight-screen, fieldsmen have to put up with various backgrounds, so perhaps that was more valuable anyway.
