and his right arm is rubbish at being raised now

@Russell, yup he knew some right arm rubbish when he saw it

Lovely day in the sunshine here at Lords. Essex bowling attack powderpuff at best, the Middlesex openers lost interest more than they lost their wickets. Sleepy scenes in the sunshine. Another 50 before a declaration?

Is Wilson going to yet another one left stranded? Done well since arriving from Surrey.

@PT1079 so he does know what a straight ball looks like then
Just seen that Gough umpiring fail. Dear me. He's never recovered from being bowled by my good self at under 15 level...
by PT10794/23/2017 4:49:38 PM
Just 391 runs in the match for the Middlesex openers then.

15 (or maybe 23) overs for Kent to take three wickets and earn themselves a day off.

8 wickets on a flat pitch. It was only a week or so since Essex batted out a draw from a seemingly hopeless cause against Lancs

Yorkshire batting beautifully here. A truly wonderous sight, oh how I wish this innings would never end.

First and third*
by nickcricket4/23/2017 4:36:09 PM
Nick Sharland -that explains it, Ballance nicks it between first and second slip.
by nickcricket4/23/2017 4:35:11 PM
@nickcricket Off the pitch I think
by Nick Sharland4/23/2017 4:33:23 PM
Is Wheal injured? only bowled three overs
by nickcricket4/23/2017 4:32:49 PM
@FreddieLynch he consistently makes some of the worst decisions seen in professional cricket, I really have no idea how he gets a county gig let alone International, mistake after mistake after mistake, if it was the Surrey Championship he'd be voted off the panel!
by Russell Chapman4/23/2017 4:32:31 PM
Couldn't get them out?

I had a bit of a nap at one point and fell asleep for that Ervine off-spin, what was the theory there?

Don Topley just described Lees as the anchor, Ballance won't like that dropping Anchor is his favourite party trick

Yes I'm a Surrey fan but unless the live stream is at an odd angle- that was an awful decision
by Freddie Lynch4/23/2017 4:27:42 PM
Michael Gough does it again - Tom Curran has Ian Bell bang in front taking all 3 out halfway up and somehow thinks its not out, an absolutely appalling piece of 'umpiring'
by Russell Chapman4/23/2017 4:26:01 PM
I've been spoilt by Yorkshire's first innings.
