(Unless we do go through)

Surrey v Glams rained off tonight which leaves six teams in theory that can qualify

Assuming the weather allows all the games to complete, and assuming no tied matches (in both cases one point each):

If the teams in second, third and fourth place all win, they will qualify unless Middlesex achieve a BIG victory over Surrey to overtake Kent or Hampshire’s run-rate.

The fifth and sixth teams, Middlesex (8 points) and Surrey (7 points) play each other at Lord’s. Middlesex have the worst run-rate of the teams on eight points, so only one of Middlesex and Surrey can qualify – but it might be that neither will.

Even if Middlesex win, their run-rate is currently quite a bit worse than Hampshire and Kent. The latter two have similar run-rates.

Somerset are already through. The other three will be from Essex (9 points, v Gloucs away), Hampshire (8 points, v Somerset home), Kent (8 points,  v Sussex away) and Middlesex or Surrey.

Given the weather and the forecast I wonder whether one or two of the games might start late with reduced overs?

Almost 20 hours after it started, there is still rain in the air in Pompey (7.15 BST). It’s not raining exactly but crucially, it’s certainly not drying. Will we start on time I wonder or are the elements determined to force us back to a 2pm start (or later)?

Incidentally the rain is going west to east so the two games most under threat are Kent’s and Middx. If they were both rained off and Hampshire play, Hampshire must win (tie?) to go through. I get a bit bored with these mini-leagues in the early games but this is more like straight knock-out now and I always loved them, even when we were losing semi-finals on comparative scores after eleven balls or whatever.

I think I’ve come up with an oblique way that Surrey & Middx can both qualify. They are rained off, Kent & Hants both lose (?).
This is because Surrey have a good run-rate.

It’s still raining at Lord’s while Hampshire have not started too well.

I wonder if the yellow pads are helping umps give the LBW decisions
