Paul Edwards at Durham v Lancashire 256-5
The loss of Croft's wicket, lbw to Barry McCarthy - the ball kept low and pinned him on the back foot - will not rate a mention in next year's Wisden or much of one in tomorrow's newspapers, but it will matter to McCarthy as he seeks to establish himself in county cricket. And it highlights the importance of the individual performance's within the context of a team game. I rather think this game is going to be very very drawn yet what matters over the next two thirds will matter to so many players: Weighell, McCarthy, Carse, Livingstone, Bailey. It has already mattered to Hameed but he seems to take that responsibility and carry it serenely. Lancashire have saved the follow on, by the way, and Kerrigan has moved on to 32 not out. He is a batsman who seems to produce a good knock just at the point when folk are ready to label him a tailender.
