Wouldn't be fair to reveal the details AG, but they were discussing the Q&A meeting yesterday and Steve Davies innings today. I only mentioned it because I think the good folk in the media centre should be aware that their conversations may unwittingly be being broadcast during breaks in play.

With the injuries Middx have (one of Compton or Robson opened with a runner, Gubbins pulled a muscle in the field earlier this morning), and at 21-1 chasing 327 to win - A Warwickshire win could be on.
If we can do the business, then it drags Middx back into the mix.

Edit - 23 for 2......

Magnificent, Dominic, Sir!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Middx now 28-2, so possibly looking a little grim for them. Robson and Eskinazi both gone.

Bravo bravo Dombess!
Rain passed fairly quickly in Wellington and presumably went wide of the CG (or it would have been there by now). Keep it up boys.

Middx 28-3 and apparently rushing, headlong, toward an ignominious defeat. At the time of typing we figure to gain at least six points on Middx as a result of this round.

They have 3 bonus points from their match, we have 4.

We are likely to finish with an absolute minimum of 9, and have hopes of a full 13 points, in which case we'd close the gap to Middx by ten points (leaving them 20 points up the road, as opposed to 30, with five games each still to play).

Obviously, Warks would gain on us somewhat..

Well, if Middx and Yorks continue to bat as they have in this round of games, then we must be in with a pretty good shout of staying up.

34-5 at Lord's.

Might be over by tea, at this rate.

It looks like this relegation battle may involve as many as 5 (or possibly even 6 if Hants get dragged in) teams at the moment.

There are only about 15 points separating 2nd from 6th in the table.

Gotta win first people but we are going the right way about that. Well done Dom. Hope the weather stays away.

Darkening now, apparently.

Would be handy if heavily overcast (but stays dry) when we start bowling..

Great effort from some much maligned team members ( though not all ) and in a position I would say from which we cannot lose. Whether or not we can win is another question entirely !

Well played SD.
Can Jack and Tim get us that batting point?

Draw the heavy favourite, but Yorks getting hammered and Middx heading the same way means that a draw would not be the end of the world.

Absolutely right, Rod.
I'd have picked Mybs at number three for this one.

Sadly, the chances of JA taking five wickets are , well....

The best we can hope for is that he *might* be able to tie down an end.

That's what he brings - some bowling that is usually economical, but it's not enough to merit a place given absence of batting performance and absence of bowling penetration.

Maynard will have to drop him all over again.

The 2nd eleven look like they have found a promising bowler (P D Trego) 10 overs-3 maidens-30 for 5.
One wonders why he is not in the first team?

But we NEED the win and MUST go for it with all guns blazing.

Your 13:30 assessment is pretty much spot on AG. Little I can do if not asked to act and being indermined by activity of people.

Ahh well not the first golden opportunity missed of this season.

Well,unfortunately, Gl, when he was in the team, earlier this season, Peter had a bowling average in three figures.

Last year he was superb with the bat so his diminished bowling role didn't really matter. But this year a batting average of about 20 and a bowling average in three figures were not cutting the mustard.

Still, there's no point Peter playing in the seconds at all, unless Mr Maynard is going to pay attention to his performances.

Perhaps, Matthew has sent him to the seconds specifically with instructions to work on getting back to it as a bowler?

It would be nice to think that were the case. And if he's bowling well in the seconds then he ought to be a strong candidate to return instead of Mr Allenby, given that he is probably a much better bet to make runs.

To judge from the scorecard, it would seem that conditions may have been loaded in favour of the bowling side this morning. But Hants have made a much better start to the follow-on so further wickets may press Peter's case more effectively.

It means they've given up a la Yorkshire on the same ground last season.

From what I heard it's not too bad but the umpires don't look terribly interested in actually going out there and getting the cricket on.
