Paul Edwards at Yorkshire v Lancashire 170-6
Questions about Ryan Sidebottom's decision to retire are worth asking and we may ask them. Even if injuries are still a problem, his county form shows no sign of deterioration. So much was clear when he pushed one across Dane Vilas in the third over of the morning and the South African nicked a catch to Adam Lyth at second slip. That joy was exceeded three overs later when Ben Coad caught the edge of Shivnarine Chanderpaul's bat and Andy Hodd took the catch amid the wildest celebrations. How many uncapped bowlers have dismissed Chanderpaul twice in a match? A great morning's cricket here, so many contrasts and textures. Who would want to be anywhere else?
