That wasn't an intended jinx.

Interesting to see the women persisting with spin in the death overs. IMO it's one of the very worst things you can do in 50 over cricket, unless you have someone almost impossible to pick it's asking to be smashed all over the place.

Yes. No point batting again, and Surrey may collapse tomorrow afternoon. We did, in a similar situation last season.

Is it just me, but Derby just had a 17 ball partnership for their 9th wicket and Imran Tahir faced 12 of them whilst Hughes, on 108 only faced 5. Isn't that just a poor approach from the established batsman?

Do Hampshire enforce the follow-on? It's virtually the only way they can win the game but they must be getting pretty knackered.

@nick - Will gave me the idea, and I've not tried for a while!
by Matt Warwick7/5/2017 3:41:20 PM
Malan just had a big appeal against Trotty turned down. Bowling like Warne.
by SDHoneymonster7/5/2017 3:40:42 PM
There is absolutely zero chance Tim Rouse makes a debut 50 here....
by Will7/5/2017 3:40:18 PM
@MattWarwick @Will Now there is a pathetic attempted at jinxing!
by nickcricket7/5/2017 3:39:47 PM
Surrey are batting superbly here.
by Matt Warwick7/5/2017 3:38:26 PM
@Will I don't even know that the score is, have given up and will tune back in when Lyth is out
by nickcricket7/5/2017 3:38:01 PM
I wouldn't back Yorkshire's batsmen to score big on a tarmac road
by nickcricket7/5/2017 3:29:42 PM
Surely by the same token someone like Yasir should be as effective on a featherbed? Not through raw pace but subtle changes in flight and variation. Or maybe it is just utterly dead. Shame we couldn't play Milne too.
by MjRichardson937/5/2017 3:29:40 PM
@Joe Williams this is Northants we're talking about, draw absolutely not guaranteed. It will have to be a real featherbed to prevent us collapsing at some point.
by Sam Inglis7/5/2017 3:25:37 PM
I'd be sending the inspectors to the Oval too if it were up to me
by Joe Williams7/5/2017 3:23:33 PM
That can come after the bombing. And the second bombing.
by StaggerBreaths7/5/2017 3:22:44 PM
If Darren Stevens was bowling the game would be over by now.

Sciver still best player. Manages to actually take a catch.
by StaggerBreaths7/5/2017 3:21:55 PM
Lord's should be dug up and the remains bombed from space.
by StaggerBreaths7/5/2017 3:21:31 PM
Possibly the one thing more than any other which winds me up about Cricket, at any level, pitches that guarantee draws from day 1
by Joe Williams7/5/2017 3:21:02 PM
But if there was a Mark Wood or a James Pattinson playing at Beckenham, would things have been different? Maybe those pitches just expose the toothlessness of county trundlers who are fast-medium and rely on swing and seam, and genuine pace would still be effective?
by Sam Inglis7/5/2017 3:20:47 PM
Think that Lords should have had a few inspections too
by Joe Williams7/5/2017 3:19:49 PM
Why punish an out ground when the 'home of cricket' only produces a result when the Yorkshire batting lineup is in town?
by nickcricket7/5/2017 3:19:20 PM
Think it's fine to have the occasional road
by Will7/5/2017 3:18:22 PM
I really truly believe the EBC should be sending pitch inspectors to Beckenham. Scores like that are a total and utter disgrace.
by Joe Williams7/5/2017 3:17:46 PM
Holden becomes the third centurion in that game who is also in my fantasy team
by Will7/5/2017 3:12:11 PM
Good delivery that from Malan, nice action and control as well
