Paul Edwards at Lancashire 234-5 v Warwickshire
Pursuant to a theme I was considering yesterday, here are Brown's Championship scores this year: 0, 8, 47, 40, 9, 41, 0, 51. He has now reached his second half-century of the season with an edged four off Jeetan Patel and is 60 not out after nicking another and then glancing Rankin to fine leg. (Is there a more underestimated shot than the leg glance, by the way. Ranji played it beautifully.) Lancashire have now added 38 runs this morning and Warwickshire have just taken the new ball, thus heralding an important hour or so's cricket as Ian Bell's bowlers seek to re-establish control of this innings. And this work has been aided by the dismissal of Brown, leg before to Barker for 61 , playing across the line to one which swung in. A wicket for that fine bowler, Barker, and a disappointment for Brown's supporters. It is the sixth time Brown has been lbw in nine Division One innings this season.
