Yorkshire bowling has struggled for a while on flatter pitches they all bowl as well as anyone on a pitch doing a little so I would expect them to keep Yorkshire mid table. Like a lot of Counties the batting look decent on paper but are not performing and there isn't a lot underneath to replace them with. Harry Brook has got to the first team faster than a lot of people thought which is a bonus and TKC will offer another option.

Somerset will be sans Elgar so Yorkshire could beat them if they open with Boycott and Chris Old

Tempted to start a SAA no balls sweepstake for the match. Do they not call them in SA?
by StaggerBreaths6/21/2017 10:31:03 AM
Four no balls.

Ballace would miss Somerset and Essex both at Scarborough which is a shame because he likes batting there, Looking down the run scorers list Yorkshire would be in real trouble without him. It is easy to moan about England players but Root and Bairstow are property England even in the latter doesn't play much. Willey isn't in the first XI in CC for me. Plunkett might be useful but he didn't bowl with any success in the CC last summer. I wonder if his pace has gone a bit and the cutters he uses so effectively in he ODI don't work in FC Cricket

SAA have bowler three no balls in five overs. Channelling the spirit of Bumrah.
by StaggerBreaths6/21/2017 10:25:35 AM
Any word on a follow-on (or otherwise?) at Lords?
by Alex Thomas6/21/2017 10:24:58 AM
@dezdezzy The lucky thing for Yorkshire would be that most of the Tests are during the T20 blast, so I guess Bally wouldn't miss too many CC games.
by nickcricket6/21/2017 10:24:21 AM
If Ballance does play the Tests then i reckon Yorks could be a serious contender for relegation

Three in the over, first batting point up for Yorkshire. Didn't know they still awarded those

Lions scoring exclusively with fives at the moment!

I'm going to be brave and back them to make 200 :)
by Beth Watson6/21/2017 10:06:34 AM
or perhaps i will again try for 191!
by jlcis6/21/2017 10:05:49 AM
@BethWatson I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say higher. I'm an optimist.

Leicester got 134 in their first innings. Higher or lower second time round?
by Beth Watson6/21/2017 10:05:13 AM
It is keeping low at Lords again so Middlesex would be foolish to bat unless their bowlers are falling to bit which they shouldn't be

Stoneman in such good form he's found a way to score five off a single ball.
