Getting worse. Middlesex won, Somerset look like starting a fightback, we could quite well lose this under pressure in the second innings. Or is the pitch improving?

Mood brightened a bit with Somerset wicket and Bresnan's strike. Still looks like we'll be set a testing target though?

Football managers frequently have to make tough calls of this nature. The more pertinent question about messages perhaps concerns the hiring of Brathwaite. I simply think that, for reasons given above, TKC shoukd have played in this game. All things considered, including fielding, Lees is the one I would have rested, given Brathwaite and the selection of five seamers. My preference though would have been to play all three batsmen and just four seamers.

And if we went down that route most would have left out Fisher.....

Or Bresnan. Both of whom have contributed in this game.

Selection is easy in the abstract, but in the run up to a game, you are always second guessing likely performance levels, and the eleven they came up with - on balance - was probably the best for the circumstances.

As it is two quick wickets for Bresnan

Think if was can be chasing less then 200 I would back us (just).
Time for players to show us why we were Champions less then 2 years ago.

5 seamers cost us 100+ runs in Warks first inns.

You never need 5 seamers. Extra batsman and part time spin would have been my choice pre match. The fact that Patel was turning it big on day 2 suggests that the decision was even worse.

End result won't matter as Warks are a poor side but going forward it's deeply concerning.

Still just in front thanks to Bresnan. Alibor's tactical genius strikes again.

I agree that you never need five seamers. How much it has cost us (if anything) is speculation surely. An extra batsman might have gained us a few runs, but at the expense of which seamer? All of them have had their moments in this game. Patto has done as good a job performing the sort of containing role we might have expected a spinner to fulfil. I just dont think that Carver or Rafiq would offer anything like the threat of a Patel - indeed on a spinning pitch I think Lyth is the best bet to extract some turn at least.

And the reason Lyth's only bowled 3 overs in the match is...
