Lip reading what Steve Davies is saying to Groenewald between the overs there. I made out "If you get caught slog sweeping I swear to God I will" but I couldn't make out the rest
by Will Colwell9/25/2017 3:32:50 PM
@JoeWilliams Only get 3 points for bowling, c'mon Wark make a minefield and roll the dice!
by nickcricket9/25/2017 3:32:28 PM
@JohnLillie Hants are rubbish, but not that rubbish that they can't take 4 points off an horrible Warks team

Mark Nicholas will be keen to see the inform Nick Gubbins

Middlesex have, including drops, taken about 18 wickets in two sessions.

250 would be good score i think
by Lawrence Payne9/25/2017 3:30:06 PM
I don't want to belittle his efforts, but Patel hasn't been that great, our tail has just been caught every time they slog him.
And now Stirling drops a return catch off Davies
by Will Colwell9/25/2017 3:30:03 PM
???? at the idea of Middlesex making it to 250.

WICKET: Kent 271/8 (73.4 ov) v Glamorgan AF Milne c Lloyd b Meschede 33 (50) Partnership: 57 (13.0 ov) CAJ Meschede 18.4-5-66-1 JL Denly 136* (188)

These next 15 runs are utterly crucial! rather gripping viewing i must say
by Joe Williams9/25/2017 3:29:28 PM
So if Somerset are bowled out for less than 250 - a first-innings score of 250 or above would be enough to keep MIddlesex up.
That doesn't relegate Somerset though - they still might have enough points to overtake Hampshire.
by John Lillie9/25/2017 3:29:08 PM
Patel bowling some class spin
by Lawrence Payne9/25/2017 3:28:50 PM
Davies must be sat there with his head so far in his hands that he can feel elbow
by NemoUKS9/25/2017 3:28:31 PM
@JoeWilliams I am honestly lost for words
by Will Colwell9/25/2017 3:28:16 PM
SO given that it's almost impossible to lose to Warks, even tho we ran it close.....Somerset if they knack this before reaching 250 are basically in a position where they have to bowl Middx out for less than 250 or they are down? Risky bloody strategy that....cannae believe this batting approach, utterly bonkers
by Joe Williams9/25/2017 3:27:48 PM
Leach out slog sweep
by Lawrence Payne9/25/2017 3:27:04 PM
Absolutely nothing wrong with the wicket
by Will Colwell9/25/2017 3:26:53 PM
I'm in a little bit of shock here. Why are they all slog sweeping? Why?!!? Our best batsman is going to get stranded on 21*
by Will Colwell9/25/2017 3:26:36 PM
From 39-4, Kent could well be the only team to get 300 today. It's a funny old game ...
by David Taylor9/25/2017 3:26:18 PM
Next debate - will Somerset get docked points of state of Ciderabad wicket?
by petepineapple819/25/2017 3:25:14 PM
End of that debate then
by petepineapple819/25/2017 3:24:46 PM
yeah i think they are getting to understand that :)

WICKET: Somerset 230/9 (82.2 ov, won the toss) v Middlesex MJ Leach c Finn b Patel 14 (26) Partnership: 16 (6.4 ov) RH Patel 28.2-3-76-6 SM Davies 21* (68)
by ESPNcricinfo Live9/25/2017 3:24:27 PM
Given that Somerset need Middlesex to not do any dodgy declaring, it would rather weaken our bargaining position if we did some dodgy declaring
by Will Colwell9/25/2017 3:22:30 PM
They're too northern and poor for him.
by StaggerBreaths9/25/2017 3:21:26 PM
lots chat on live youtube feed Somerset fans want to declare
by Lawrence Payne9/25/2017 3:21:25 PM
It is just Yorkshire Strauss hates...well and Durham RIP
by nickcricket9/25/2017 3:20:59 PM
Strauss has a new favourite cricket club, it's called 'money'.
If Somerset got to 250-8 with a handful of overs left in the day, could they declare (on the basis they fancy a crack at Middlesex tonight) and not fall foul of the rules (or would Strauss put pay to that?).
by petepineapple819/25/2017 3:18:41 PM
Be out sloggin' soon, they never learn (everyone happy now?)
