George Dobell at Warwickshire (178) v Yorkshire (9-1)
Lyth has gone to a short ball from Wright. He was playing really well around off stump, leaving the ball beautifully, but he went a long way across his stumps to the short ball and was adjudged to have gloved it down the leg side as he looked to push it behind square. He looked a little disappointed with the decision.
Paul Edwards at Durham v Nottinghamshire 150-6
To the surprise of all but his good self Luke Fletcher has been Nottinghamshire's mainstay this morning. Samit Patel and Riki Wessels have departed to Chris Rushworth and Mark Wood respectively but the visitors' nightwatchman has presented a broad bat to the Durham seamers and is 27 not out. In the context of the match, these are important runs. The deficit is now only 12 and the second innings of this game are unlikely to be run-sprees.
On a personal level Fletcher is now 73 runs away from a maiden first-class century, a fact one mentions only because he has said that were he to achieve that feat he would do something so appalling that it cannot be revealed even in this most broad-minded of fora. His highest score is 92. Chris Read is batting with Fletcher and Notts are unrecognisable from the team that sank without much trace last September. By the way the weather is glorious, the trees at the Lumley End are coming more clearly into leaf with almost every over and one is verging on a "good to be alive" mood. No doubt it will pass.
