Will Macpherson at Surrey 9-0 v Sussex
Good morning from the Oval, where I ambled into the ground at 10.28 (I live a matter of metres away), blissfully forgetting that 10.30 starts ever existed. Personally, I would start all Championship cricket at half 10, which makes it a bit blooming rich that I miss the first ball when it actually does.
Anyway, Surrey are having a bat. It's green, so Vince didn't bother with a toss and also chose to leave out his actual spinner, Crane, in favour of his part-time one, Dawson. Anyone who says Dawson is any more than a part-time spinner in Championship cricket hasn't seen the man bowl with a red ball. He'll get 15-fer now.
Anyway, Dom Sibley has veritably rattled his way to 10 against McLaren and Berg, while Burns - normally a much quicker scorer - is yet to get off the mark.
