Weatherley debut.jpg

The new boy, Joe Weatherley – probably a first Championship innings today. This was shortly after a novelty – a real toss with both sides wanting to bat first.

Middlesex won that and at 11.30 were wondering whether it was worth it. By the evening, in brighter (but still cold) weather they were sure – here Simpson drives past Adams with Weatherley and Wheater watching:

Incidentally I never did spot anyone buying an ice cream! Below: Malan departs after a fine innings – Hampshire’s only success from 11.30-6.30

I did buy an ice cream although that possibility seemed very remote at this time yesterday. Am at work about 5 miles away and it will be another cold start for players, spectators and commentators today.

It’s not sweltering in Southsea today either Ian – will I get my ice cream? At Northwood, it’s a wind roaring down from the North Sea but it would help if there was an Ingleby-Mackenzie stand to shelter in – although it would rather spoil the attractiveness of the ground. It’ll be chilly on top of Broadhalfpenny Down today.

I did buy a ice cream at Merchant Taylors School yesterday and very enjoyable it was too…..no prices listed by vendor so difficult to choose from a long menu of delights. The Coffee van did a roaring trade I think…
As for the cricket, well not a good day at the office was it….
