Paul Edwards at Lancashire v Hampshire 391-9
Hampshire bat on here, not so much to score runs or even to see Kyle Abbott make a maiden first-class century, as to keep Lancashire's batsmen out there in the heat before they have to bat in the same conditions. This last wicket has added 42 runs and I'm always banging on about the way such partnerships take early wickets. Lancashire have used four bowlers but they don't look like taking the last wicket. There are marc de champagne truffles in the press box and all is right with the world. Abbott is 97 not out and all will be right with his world if he scores four more runs.
