Paul Edwards at Lancashire 337-3 v Somerset
Hard graft at the coalface...doing the needful...efficient cricket. Please insert your own phrase for the tough work that sometimes needs to be done in professional sport in order to obtain significant rewards. Whatever you select, that is what Lancashire are doing and they are doing it very well. Petersen is 133 not out and Croft 48 not out. It will not grab a headline by Monday and not too many tomorrow but it is still admirable stuff, especially from Croft, who has worked immensely hard this season. Lancashire will now collect 10 points if this game is drawn, which should help their chances of staying in the First Division; Somerset will also take 10 points but they almost certainly need to take more than that to make up the ground on Middlesex and Yorkshire.
