Thanks LL.
A player said the Lord's wickets have been impossible to bat on all season?
That doesn't work with us only on 9 batting points,from home and away games.
And,other counties have been able to get runs!

Cricinfo does Nick Gubbins' dismissal full justice.

It WAS a silly needless swish with not much foot movement, and even bloody sillier when he knows the vulnerable batting behind him.
Grrrrmmmmmddfflllbbbllbbblllbblllll *@^>XXXX!!!!

Why, Nick, why?

Max really was similarly silly, as ball went straight to Dead Eye Henry.

I was paying tribute to Morgan's contributions to our cause with the bat in the Gents when he backed my judgement.

What is he doing in our team?

Ollie had looked really at ease, playing in the V, and going well. He and JK were showing that the ball and pitch had eased out quite a lot, but then he played one of those neither block nor drive shots that just popped up. Again a silly soft dismissal. He is better then that.

Shot of the day for was an absolutely thunderous stroke of utter execution by Finn through extra cover. Whilst going down the hill to the lowest point of the ground, I have never seen a ball go across the outfield faster, but did he have to go at Denly cross batted?

The More Positive Aspects:

Well done, LL, I too thought Andersson was fast -quicker than Finn. Damn rapid, and off no more than a few paces. MY goodness what a prospect he looks.

Badadladadala's figures really reflect him as another really hot prospect. Pacey, Gun barrel straight, a couple of good bouncers thrown in for good measure, and great economy.

"What did you do on your long vac?" "Oh, nothing much, opened the bowling at Lord's for Middlesex, alongside Steven Finn and outbowled him"

My godson is looking forward to accosting him back at Exeter in a slight state of inebriation (Godson that is), and slurring his ""Ahhhh, mate shhaaaw you at Lord's you're rilly grea', you're my best mate, I love you" and similar expressions of admiration and congratulation.

My reservation is that is extremely unlikely, as our opening bowler still looks so young, he is unlikely to be allowed into the Impey, The Meeting House or anywhere else frequented by layabout PPE third years.

Watching on the live stream, it looks like a medium sized christmas tree has been impaled in to the surface of the adjacent pitch.

Regardless of whether we win or lose this encounter, two day matches (it might just creep in to day three) are an enormous disappointment, as there is precious little championship cricket played anyway.

If Murts has an infected abcess anything like the one I had last year, my full sympathies are with him. Truly awful.

Beefy

If your home wickets are "impossible to bat on" I suspect that it has an effect on your confidence when you get onto better wickets. I won't say "good wickets" because there have been so few of them. I think that may have been one of the reasons why Ciderabad had been banished, until it bit the home team on the bum last week.

How does "impossible to bat on" compare with "below average", I wonder?

Chunky - The rings have been apparent since at least late last season. It had been suggested they were fuserium rings, of the type that made Headingley "impossible to bat on" a couple of dedades ago.

If the pitch is impossible to bat on how come 640 runs have been scored on it in two days? I much prefer matches on these pitches compared with some of the boring flat track draw only ones we have had in the past. They made average batsmen look like world beaters.

May I yet again pay tribute to a great batting effort from Eion Morgan.

To pick out square midwicket with a shot straight to the man there, after only scoring one run, with so much time still left in the match, is a mark of real genius.

This really is playing for one's team, the shirt and the club. NOT.

He cannot be picked for another match for us this season on pure cricketing grounds. Tim Murtagh bats better than he does.

It's almost as if he has a guaranteed place in the side, one wonders what the ones left out must feel.
