This is despite the fact that Robson was actually quite good for the entirety of last year; his dropping occurred in 2011.

    Looks as if Lancs are going for it, may as well while they have wickets in hand. 93 wanted, 13 overs left after this one.

    Somerset are three down in the follow-on at Headingley but Yorkshire have too much to do there surely. Brooks outbowling Bresnan atm.

    Weather has ruined this game but Yorkshire giving Somerset a scare. Not a bad effort with such a depleted side.

    Thing is though such a depleted side is only going to be doing well at Headingley I think given we lack a better spin option than Rashid whose batting gets him into this side at the moment.

    Hmm interesting goings on at Slurry. Reckon even less to Durham's batting line-up this week, basically have a Buckley in for Breese - so that's a bit of an unknown. Thorp is playing for Onions but they're much of a muchness.

    One wonders what Slurry's spinners will do when Buckley and Borthwick have most of the wickets so far.

    And another wicket falls on 237. All out. 5-fer on debut for Buckley.

    How many wickets is it before we can claim the extra half hour?

    You can't claim the extra half hour on the final day - that's a device to stop the game going into an extra day when it's close to a conclusion. All you can do is play the game out to a finish.


    Wickets tumbling at OT with Lancs in sight of the finishing line.

    Shame we've clearly had the best of this match.

    With a ball to spare!

    Saj dropped a catch off the last ball, determined to get in on the act somewhere.

    I hope Foster doesn't get stick for his declaration.

    Very fortunate - if I didn't know better I'd be beginning to wonder if our first innings performances weren't all kidology

    Saj doesn't even know what team he's playing for.

    Sussex have a chinaman bowler on, how interesting ...

    Going to watch this for a while, it's been so long since I saw David Sales make any runs. Long time since anyone at Northampton did, for that matter.

    He's clearly spent much of that runless time eating. Out now though, doesn't Northants batting start now?
