    I doubt it... they give scorecards and stats for 2nd XI games too.

    Click on the blokes playing for the second team and then on form. There's the stats from the recent 12 games (2nd XI, ODI, first-class...you name it). Also from the last four games on recent scores.

    I make up the team scores and results but the names of players dismissed I get from the opposing squad.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    4th May

    Yorkshire XI Scoreboard:
    Yorkshire 205/3 (48) beat Middlesex 204/9 (50) by 7 wickets

    Outstanding performers:
    Michael Lumb 84 not out [105]
    Phil Jenkins 39 [61]
    Paul Hutchinson 3/32 [10]
    Jacob Oram 3/37 [9]

    Eldershaw's 2nd XI stats: 2; 1/40

    A poor day in the field. A couple dropped catches and then one dropped off my bowling. I ended with 8-2-40-1 but started with 4-2-3-1. The early wicket wasn't exactly brilliant bowling either, but rather a top-edged slog to which I held the return catch. Overall much room for improvement. The good news is that we won by 17 runs.

    6th May

    Yorkshire XI Scoreboard:
    Yorkshire 311/3 (50) beat Worcestershire 258 (45) by 53 runs

    Outstanding performers:
    Jacob Oram 174 [145]
    Phil Jenkins 110 [111]
    Phil Moore 4/38 [10] - including a hat-trick in the 44th over
    Michael Davies 3/50 [10]

    Eldershaw's 2nd XI stats: 0; 1/22

    One of my most pleasing days with the ball so far. I just went out there and settled purely on line and length, pitching it up and getting a little bit of away-nip. The batsmen were all at sea in the middle overs, trying desperately to score off that line. Eventually I closed up my tidy spell at 10-4-22-1, my first over having an inside and outside edge for boundaries and going for 9 runs in total. Good way to rebound, but really must work a bit more on my batting as I got out to a hopeless prod today.

    7th May

    Yorkshire XI Scoreboard:
    Yorkshire 153/5 (47.4) beat Nottinghamshire 152 (42.2) by 5 wickets.

    Outstanding performers:
    Phil Moore 3/26 [8]
    Chad Keegan 2/31 [10]
    Noel Mullin 2/21 [5]

    Eldershaw's 2nd XI stats: 52; 0/49

    A bit disappointed as Chad Keegan was called up for the Super Cup game today ahead of me, to replace the resting Hutchinson. Oh well, my time will come. On the field it was a mixed effort. My bowling was very much forgetable, as you'd expect 7-0-49-0 to be, but my batting took it's best turn to date. Coming off that first ball duck in yesterday's game, I managed a half-century this time around, my first in Second XI cricket. The innings was something to be proud of, as it contained 5 sixes and 2 fours and came from only 22 balls, helping propel the score to 333/8 in 50 overs, a winning total by 92 runs.

    9th May

    Yorkshire XI Scoreboard:
    Yorkshire 411/5 dec. beat Warwickshire 203 and 171 by an innings and 37 runs

    Outstanding performers:
    Vic Craven 142
    Phil Jenkins 114
    Michael Lumb 72 not out
    Jacob Oram 43 not out and 4/31
    Paul Hutchinson 2/25 and 5/55
    Phil Moore 3/42

    Eldershaw's 2nd XI stats: 20 and 25; 1/49 and 2/36

    A drawn game for the team, but yet another frustratingly efficient one personally. I continue to perform solidly when it's the spectacular hauls that will get me into the first XIs. Still, I keep the faith and try on until I succeed. Very happy with how my generally useless batting is proving somewhat useful lately.

    13th May

    Yorkshire XI Scoreboard:
    Yorkshire 108/2 (31.5) beat Hampshire 107 (32.5) by 8 wickets

    Outstanding performers:
    Noel Mullins 46 not out [94]
    Jacob Oram 32 [48] and 3/20 [7]
    Michael Davies 3/7 [4.5]
    Phil Moore 2/18 [7]

    Eldershaw's 2nd XI stats: 11; 2/80

    Ouch! By far the worst game for the season. The Hampshire second string just dug into me and certainly didn't do me any favours considering that manager Liam Camps was attending the game. The only comfort I can take really, aside from my two slower ball induced wickets, is the fact that I cleaned up from 5-0-46-0 to 10-1-80-2 and bowled my final over as a maiden in the 44th. Can't say I'm thrilled with the workload handed by the skipper though, although Tim Ambrose didn't have much choice in the matter considering that the best economy was 4.9 and bowled out.

    I've probably made a stupid error, but in the scorecard you say they lasted 32.5 overs, but you say he bowled a maiden in the 44th.

    16th May

    Yorkshire XI Scoreboard:
    Yorkshire 466/9 dec. beat Leicestershire 261 and 96 by an innings and 109 runs

    Outstanding performers:
    Noel Mullins 118
    Vic Craven 108
    A Nixon 52
    J Oram 50 and 3/42
    P Hutchinson 3/57
    V Nixon 2/40 and 4/12
    C Keegan 2/52 and 4/32

    Eldershaw's 2nd XI stats: 7 not out and 7; 7/63 and 1/17

    Phil Moore called up to the England team but still no luck for me. Instead the selectors went for Vic Black for the game against Leicestershire.

    It only gave me that extra bit of determination though and that served me well. Bowling wicket to wicket and swinging it sharply back into the left-handers, I managed 5 LBWs in 7 wickets for just 63 runs. It wasn't the first time this season I found my best rhythm, but it was the first time I had luck to complement it. Having knocked over the boys from Leicestershire for 186 in the first innings and then seeing my team-mates rack up 399, I was thankfully not called upon under any pressure in the second innings and only had to bowl 7 overs for my 1/17. Innings win by 2 runs.

    Yorkshire XI Scoreboard:
    Lancashire 265/7 (43.5) beat Yorkshire 261/4 (45) by 3 wickets

    Outstanding performers:
    Michael Lumb 99 not out [88]
    Sam Adamson 46 [55]
    Jacob Oram 41 [49] and 3/30 [8.5]

    Eldershaw's 2nd XI stats: 5; 1/24

    Reports indicate that the front line team didn't fare too well, but the 2nd XI pulled off another good if not comfortable win I'm pleased to say. My contribution was not really spectacular, but very solid nonetheless - 10 over, 2 maidens, 24 runs, 1 wicket. Ultimately we knocked the Lancastrians over for 141 and chased that down with some problems, losing 8 wickets in the way.
