    Absolutely love it. 50 partnership between me and Furball too, in quick time.

    Maybe they should have given me a bowl.. England hate leg spinners, right?

    Day Two


    Daemon Dong took his third wicket early on the second morning, as he crashed one through Furball's defenses to end the legspinner's cameo. The innings was ended half an hour later when Bruce Force was run out for 10, but not before Deen raised an excellent century, and the visitors' 350.





    The home side's innings got off to a promising start as Myheart and Force were seen off. But Smythington-Smythe struck to trap Porterfield lbw for 13, and in his next over the paceman had Mork out to a fine caught and bowled for 18, reducing the innings to 43/2 at the lunch break.


    Deen came on to join the pace attack after the break, but narrowly failed to follow suit as he dropped a tricky chance from Jansen off his own bowling. The Czech guest star failed to make the most of a charmed life, as after having also been dropped by Myheart on 10, he lofted a Furball delivery straight to mid off for 29. From there the English pace attack began to dominate proceedings, with Myheart removing Joyce for a duck and Teja attempting to weather the storm on 20* from 101 balls at tea. The score was a vulnerable 112/4.


    Nonetheless, Tea and Phlegm built steadily after the break, Phlegm having made 47 before Deen got him lbw, ending a partnership of 93. In the final hour of the day Teja brought up his arduous but valuable fifty, made using over 200 balls. Bharani Dharan couldn't stick with him, becoming Furball's second wicket for 12, and offie Oscar Wood's trundle gave him the wicket of Dong. At 221/7, stumps came with England firmly in the driving seat, with a new ball due in the morning and the prospect of a healthy lead.

    I hit a six! - now that is unusual - I've always found that tricky in the real world with just a forward defensive and an ugly onside smear in my locker

    I think it was a top edged forward defensive

    Sticking around to let Deen get his ton. WAG.

    Would have liked to take some wickets though.
