Another hard day in the field for north. You would have to say that the bowling looks weaker on paper - comes to something when Leaning gets a long bowl (and gets two wickets..)

Poor old Tim, left trying to shepherd the tail to reach an unlikely total. He's been left in that position a few times. You'd love to see him pull it off but you know it just won't happen.

A more achievable target this time, but it looks like the middle and late order just collapsed around him!

From a quick glance at the tour stats, it seems he's now the North's pre-eminent batting prospect. Could be a classic year ahead...

the north team thrashed 3 nil with only Tim Bresnan showing any resistance. nowhere near as bad as a yorkshire defeat but it still rankles when a south team is dominant. Mason Crane took 4 wickets for 1 run. Could he be pushing for Adil Rashids place?.

The article in The Guardian (www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/mar/21/n ... iam-dawson) contains the line

</i><blockquote><i>Tim Bresnan showed what an estimable cricketer he is.</blockquote><i></i>

Couldn't have put it better myself.

He should be doubly chuffed with that:

1. His prowess has trickled down as far as the Guardian.
2. Looks like they spelt his name right!
