He made them pay for the dropped catch. Good job.

Well done SD. He must be feeling hugely relieved after his recent efforts.

Just time for Timmy G. to smack a quick 50 !

Gripping day's play and very important that many of our players are on their best form of the season. I have remained optimistic throughout and so happy for Steve Davies. We need to see this one through. Yorkshire are doomed, that's what Sky want

330-9 at close.

Given the amount of turn available after tea then my guess is that our boys will be pretty pleased with that. It will be SD whose comments will appear on the website and I expect him to be pleased with the total.

Pretty good day for the batters and swipers; congratulations to SD for an excellent century, and to various others for solid support roles.

So, what constitutes a collapse? Losing two wickets for 12? 3 for 36? 4 for 64? How many times in the last few years would we have accepted a "collapse" like that? Good grief...

We lost 4 pretty quickly, SP, but - thankfully, Jack put a stop to it.

Lancs must be sick of his batting.

And he'll get them with the ball later.

Great great day.
In the context of our season possibly our best yet.
Great fight from the batters.
Eddie deserves a special mention. Him surviving that session meant Tom & SD could cash in after lunch. Useful efforts from Dom & Jack to edge us well above par.
Need to back it up tomorrow & be lucky to miss any showers.
If we could squeeze in 60/70 overs and spin them out for 100/125 lead we'll be well set.
Yorkies getting smashed.
Middlesex rainec off on a lovely sunny London day.
We have had worst days this season!

AS expected, SD suggests we're reasonably pleased with our position.

Just an observation, when the new ball was due at 80 overs I believe they would have gone off through bad light if the new ball had been taken, the light had improved when the new ball was taken later on.

Did Lancs keep the slow bowlers on so as to keep on playing? good for them if they did.

"Taking the positives from the day's play", as Maynard might say, first Byrom. Begining to look like an opening batsman. Knows that his job is to anchor one end. I know he's only getting 30's and 40's but he's starting to get them regularly. Abell, I didn't see his dismissal (went to make a cup of tea) but he looked confident and settled and if he got a good 'un well done the bowler. Davies, I know he gave at least one chance but you don't find many chanceless centuries.
I probably won't make the start tomorrow but I'm sure that Leach and Groenwald will get us another bonus point and then we can get among them. I feel an innings victory coming on!!

The usual correlation between the success or not of a days play and the number of posts strikes again.....

1 or 2 regular contributors seem to have gone a little quiet!? Long may it continue if we have another 2 or 3 days as good as today.....

Roll on 10.30, avoid the showers and 100% back our bowlers to gain us a chunky 1st innings lead, AGAIN

Cometh the hour, wsm, cometh the man!

Forecast not good for tomorrow - the weather one that is.



A glass half - empty or a glass half - full?
Regardless, both glasses need filling up.

Agree on the Byron comment, if he can get his average up a little & mostly regular 30/40's, I'll take that. It's still quite astonishing that only today has one of our players hit 600 for the season, but what a great day's play when you take into account proceedings elsewhere.

Welcome back Tom!
Any praise for Eddie? Tom? Davies? Maynard!?
A full balcony all clapped the SD hundred too.....
As did 99% of the crowd from what i could see, he and Hildy are real class, so much time when they get going
