May I recommend that everybody closes down their access to this site immediately as I am about to swear VERY VERY LOUDLY.

Well, the webcam/live feed really is showing rays of sunshine and the moppers are out.
I am calling a resumption at about 17H30/18H00; plenty of time for the last wicket - I don't think Lamb will bat unless there are black clouds hovering overhead when the ninth wicket falls.

Watching the 'live feed'. Though it seems to be a hive of inactivity. Anyone know whet the man kneeling down top left of covers with both hands in the puddle is doing?

Helping the water from the covers into a drain?

He appeared to be fiddling with something, whilst the cover started to billow slightly: it is now blowing fully, almost a storm.

What is the latest time for the finish?

Re: Warwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
Phrench Phil 18 August, 2020 15:46
I think Farmer is correct (re. the kneeling fiddler).
He is now lifting up a section of the cover, whilst one of his colleagues is sweeping water in to something - a drain seems most likely.

Northants all but beaten by Worcs... 9 down.

Re: Warwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy

Inspection at 5pm.

Best-case scenario, I'd imagine, would be on at about 5.50pm or so... but god knows how long for? How many overs we'd be allowed to bowl and heaven knows how long the light would hold for (even assuming no more rain)?

I think it is CC conditions of play, except 90 instead of 96 overs in the day.

If so that would be a 6.00 p.m. finish plus maybe an over or so depending on how long it took us to bowl our 16 overs to date.

IF no more rain we might just get back on before 5.50. In my experience from a few drenchings there, Edgbaston drains pretty quickly after downpours. Putting my head on the block my guess would be 5.30. That of course based on looking at the scene on a laptop ... The greater problem I have found at Edgbaston is light.

Looks like Tom out there trying to convince the umpires that we can start at some point.. the fact that he feels the need to do so may not bode well, in terms of their reluctance to do so.

Lot's of shrugging of shoulders as they stand there in bright sunshine!
Come on, get the game played to completion, that's the whole point!

Re: Warwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
AGod 18 August, 2020 16:07
Umpires look like they're trying to give Tom lots of reasons why they'd like to get home for an early dinner.

Re: Warwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
Farmer White 18 August, 2020 16:08
And it lookd like we have a particularly wet patch where they are standing and water being squeezed up by the blotter behind.

Not looking good with great puddles on the outfield

Re: Warwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
Angell Face 18 August, 2020 16:11
There's standing water in places.

Re: Warwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy

Tom doesn't look impressed.

Yeah live feed looks that way.

Who was the umpire ((the dark-haired one) who kept yawning during the 5pm inspection? Little doubt which way he voted.

Beautiful blue skies now

Worcs beat Northants, and top the group.

We will have to beat Gloucs and hope they fail against whatever lot they are playing (presumably this poor Warks side?) .. otherwise it's that trip to New Road, needing to win to be greeted with a track that would be apt on a ground of that name... KT eat your heart out type of pitch.

Re: Warwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
Rod1883 18 August, 2020 16:18
Yes, the wider shot showed those puddles (and the half hearted attempts to drain them!).
Oh well, one point behind Worcs now I think.

Surrey are an embarrassment to the game, really:

Why does the machine to mop up water only come out after the rain has stopped. Why not be working when it is raining?if pitch and surroundings are OK and problem is the outfield isnt that something the fielding side could say they are happy to put up with?

Re: Warwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy

Umpire was Tom Lungley CJM
