    Please do bring it up, preferably in a similar manner to how FST would have done had he seen the previously mentioned 'bowler' 'bowling'.

    First post today, with an hour to play ... Middlesex following on against Surrey but past 200 with no loss - 100 for Rogers and Robson about to follow suit. I'd settle for a draw from this point, tbh.

    Rain brought an early end to what appears to have been a dreadful game at Hove.

    And Gloucs in early trouble chasing 290 v Leics.

    I hadn't realised that Niall O'Brien was at Leicester now. Made a 100 earlier, as did skipper and opening partner Josh Cobb.

    Geez. Gloucestershire in all kinds of strife.

    Horrible call from Klinger for the second run out.

    Yesterday's match was decided about 10 overs into the 2nd innings and this looks like a lost cause for the Gladiators. This partnership represents their last chance, basically. Trouble is they're well behind the rate now.

    Saj and Bopara bowling in tandem. Don't you ****ing dare collapse or score at less than 6 an over.

    Have to say I've been disappointed by a lot of the bowling I've seen this season on t'telly.

    A lot of people with big reps, and ones who have taken a lot of wickets, have been decidedly average. Rushworth the latest disappointment.

    Heh, Root gone second ball - well if he was due a failure, this was a better time than most ...

    And Yorkshire have a W Rhodes in their team. Stands for Will though, and no relation it seems.

    Decent pace from Stokes, but his line and length are all over the place. Mixing overpitched half-volleys with half-trackers that sit up and beg to be pulled.

    Hint of Hoggard in his gather, IMHO. Sadly doesn't seem to have Hoggy's swing tho.

    Wagg has just gone for 16, but did Yorkshire leave the charge too late? Only three down but needing almost 10 an over.

    At least they aren't showing the Notts-Northants game - even more one-sided than yesterday's.

    I wonder if the Unicorns will get on this year? Might be a first I think.


    Wickets falling at Colwyn Bay now. Way too many needed for Rhodes to get 'em in singles.
