I’m working ion a new project for the Atrium which means the 2nd XI visit will be delayed until tomorrow by which time there is a very good chance of rain. If that happens I can get on with my work.

The weather has been pretty good this week – I don’t think any games have been interrupted yet. Before this (sixth) round of matches Tigger wrote to me to say

“Following on from my April lost overs stats. May isn’t looking much better. We have already lost 749 overs including 4 whole days in division one and 917 overs including 4 whole days in div 2”

Generally matches are still averaging about three days play out of four. I was thinking that this round would improve that but tomorrow may change things back. I doubt it will matter much at Taunton. If 160 points is around the safety mark then Somerset should manage about one quarter of them from batting points at home and a second quarter from drawn matches at home. Halfway there then without any bowling points or away points.

If they’re not one of the fall guys then who …?

Midday and it’s raining in Taunton (and later Bristol). Meanwhile MCC are recovering – 84-4, no wickets this morning. (Update at 12.45): the 5th wicket went two runs later – now 117-5.

One hour after lunch and as has been observed before on this site bursting with articulate and witty contributors, it’s the Wheal (4 wkts) McCoy (3) doing the business for Hants – MCC 205-7

MCC 227 all out have followed on – Brad Wheal 6-48. Second time they are 75-1

MCC closed on 179-4 – a few runs ahead now. The forecast looks dodgy – including Saturday and maybe even Sunday?
