Get Rayner on. Or Franklin. Or somebody else that's not a tired right-arm fast-ish-pacer.

great result. Are Middlesex all of a sudden a title contender after a modest season, or does it merely show that the cracks at Yorkshire are real...
by dave7/6/2016 4:28:51 PM
The latter Dave, but I would say that wouldn't I?

The batting averages tell a story for Yorks, Of those who have played 4 games or more (and talking out Brooks) the top average is 37 from Lees which in matches involving a lot of dull draw simply isn't good enough. Lyth has had 2 hundreds and nothing else, Ballance is hopefully come good but has been awful, Gale looks over the hill and those young players who have looks so promising have just fallen away
