Paul Edwards at Lancashire 176-6 v Middlesex
Resolute stuff this, from Lancashire. Murtagh and Malan are on but Middlesex really haven't looked like making a breakthrough since lunch. Jones is now 75 and Tom Bailey is reinforcing his value to the public weal with 17 not out off 89 balls. A wonderful summery day in Manchester and it is difficult to believe that this ground was flooded, as was most of the rest of Manchester, yesterday evening. So wet was it, indeed, that one eminent journalist - ergo not me - walked to Tesco and was so drenched when he got there that he had to buy a new pair of trousers.
