Basically Jack Leach best chance of getting a call up is bowling Yorkshire out in the game starting Monday, really standing out in an away game against a county trying to win a third championship

On a pitch that will offer him naff-all.

StaggerBreaths - We have seen he can dominate when things are in his favour. you can't blame Yorkshire, England are keeping Rashid for a weekend 'Fitness Test/Bangladesh indoctrination' so I doubt he will be available for Monday

I'm not blaming Yorkshire, I'm not going to complain about home advantage. Everybody uses it to some extent. (Expect this viewpoint to change at some point during the winter.)
Ah come on Durham, show a bit of backbone. This will be over by lunch at this rate.

Just hope Yorkshire produce a pitch with a good balance between bat and ball, It would be brave to make spin the tipping point. I do think in future seasons if Yorkshire had Rashid and Rafiq they could look to win with spin which is a big advantage for any county that can rest their seamers

Green top for Brooks/Sidebottom

Pretty pathetic from Durham all told. Yorkshire's attack are good, they're not quite this good.
by StaggerBreaths9/9/2016 9:54:01 AM
This is the part of the season where having a larger squad really helps, the Durham attack has rather run out of puff they are not the youngest and have all had to play across the formats

Compton on 97... #PleaseNoMockers

If I shorten that to #PNM would everyone understand what I was saying?
by StaggerBreaths9/9/2016 9:56:08 AM
@nickcricket. Having Sidebottom back makes a massive difference for us as well. Plus he's only just getting into his stride after having most of the season off.
