Apologies for our feeble bowling attack - bar Jarvis. Kerrigan is getting worse by the match and is given a juicy new deal this week.

I did hint (half-joking) a couple of times that you should loan us a seamer or two, but hopefully we can deny Middlesex batting points and scrape a draw (especially if weather helps a bit).

For second game running, Giles and Croft won toss but were too SCARED to bat first because of overcast conditions. Both times, the sun broke through quickly to give the visitors great batting conditions.

Lancs members grumbling all day about the toss.
Outstanding 'death' bowling by Bailey & Jarvis to threaten Middx's third batting point, then Kerrigan comes on with a wicket maiden - looks like he's improving again!

Would still expect Franklin to get them to 300 (11 from 3.0) but been an interesting phase...

Edit: close, but no cigar. Helpful outcome though after they were 248/2 after 83 overs...

....and all out. Glad we can do you a favour, even if it's only to pinch two batting points from them! If our other batters remember to stay in with Hameed we might even grab a lead, but as long as we avoid the f/o then Middlesex may have to set a target, which will be interesting how much of a chance they allow us.

You know what? I may well go to ot tomorrow and cheer your lads on.

Think tomorrow at ot will be the pivotal day, will lancs get a first innings lead? will middx get themselves into a position to declare in the second innings?

lancs could do with batting for a minimum of 3, ideally 4 sessions. which should make the post lunch (if lancs are still batting) very crucial.

Well there's one problem that's no longer a problem - the other batters staying in with Hameed.

Well proctor will be staying with Hameed for the rest of this innings. Unfortunately they will be spending it in the pavilion.

Peterson gone too. Someone should go check on Howden, he's been quiet for a while.
