Well there's another 4 bore draws in division 1(!)
In all seriousness the other 3 games had a lot of runs and were a fair distance away from a result.
The running total now stands at 11 draws from 13 games (84.6%)

21 draws from 27 matches at the moment (from both Divisions).

A lot of them have been rain affected though, so not a true picture.

You're right. A lot have been rain affected but just looking at the number of 400+ scores and declarations is a concern in itself.

I am reminded of Gilbert and Sullivan's opera "Iolanthe". Mountararat, harking back to a golden age, sings,

'And noble statesmen do not itch
To interfere with matters which
They do not understand'.

For 'noble statesmen' substitute 'ECB'

DrawWatch update: the total now stands at 13 out of 17 (76%) with 2 results in this week's div 1. Still hard to tell what the season will bring with more rain around stopping anything happening in the other 2 games.

Durham may regret that, were they expecting rain? Lancs going at 7.5 an over so far.

Lancashire 6 down now. Weather radar suggests there may be interruptions at CLS. I guess at this stage of the season, best result for us would be a draw (or a Durham win?)
