I see Nottinghamshire`s mercenaries are yet again doing their county proud (and us by default) in the second innings against Hampshire over the seas on the Isle of Wight. Ben Slater 12, Ben Duckett 0, Joe Clarke 0, as the struggle on 104-4, chasing 439.

Are they ever going to score any runs - or indeed remain in the side - in return for the big bucks they accepted to desert their academy counties?

Meanwhile they have signed Indian Test spinner Ravi Ashwin (of Jos Buttler `mankading` fame) as their championship overseas player for the second half of the season, including against Somerset at Taunton on July 7. Perhaps they want him for his batting.

Kent not doing much better at 106-3, chasing 426 against Surrey, but at least the only wicket they have lost so far today is that of the night-watchman.
