One of those cloudy days which usually suits the seamers. BUt I fear Patel more personally. A gutsy player who won't give up even though they are relegated

Looks like the weather could frustrate us over the next couple of days. The good news is that we should come away with more bonus points than Somerset and Middlesex. Them from the wrong side of the pennines aren't doing us many favours so far.

Imagine if the standings after going into the final match allowed Somerset and Middlesex to conspire to a draw to send us down. They wouldn't would they? Fortunately I can't see that being a possibility.

Ironic that this would probably have been a better week to play Essex!
As for Warwickshire, Patel and Wright are good players who have performed poorly all season. When I've been to Edgbaston, I've sometimes had the impression that the bowlers - with the exception of Barker - were making a sullen protest against the feebleness of their batsmen. As illustration, now that he's at Surrey, Rikki Clarke seems liberated.

I'd intended to be at Headingley today, but couldn't make it in the end. The radio commentary's not too bad so far, though it's irritating to have to listen to Phil Britt massacring the pronunciation of Liversedge.

Tom that's impossible as neither side would know how we are getting on against essex which of course is being played simultaneously

It is in fact an advantage to us that they play each other

For example
...the most likely scenario might be yorks and middx to win this week....then Somerset would have to beat middx next week....woth us around 4 points ahead of middx then it is extremely unlikely that they could overtake us even if we atr hammered at chelmsford

Peter: "Tom that's impossible as neither side would know how we are getting on against essex which of course is being played simultaneously "

I'm delighted to see that there are others who deny the existence of modern communication technology and social media as much as I.

And then there are always pigeons.....

Not picking the extra batsman looks like costing us here

Looks increasingly likely that yesterday afternoon's very poor and disappointing session could prove critical to our survival as we should be ahead by now rather than playing catch up with only 6 wickets remaining. If we throw away this game after starting so well, we will deserve to be relegated.

So please explain how it would happen?

If somst were 5 points ahead of us and middc 4....both sides collude a13 point draw.....middx would look very silly if we then beat essex I'm the final session

Besides how would you do it?

Joke bowling till the batting side gets 400 then they throw away their wickets?

Come on of course that would not happen..

There is mo way collusion can ensure both middx and somst could giatantee they both finish above yorks without a crystal ball
