If you’re going, enjoy the day.

It struck me, thinking about today’s squad with Topley again unfit and Salisbury apparently a one-over-wonder, that Hampshire’s pace attack now consists entirely of overseas players: Abbott, Edwards, Berg, Wheal, Holland and (maybe) Ervine.

That’s a first, for sure.

Lancs batting. Holland in for Rossouw . .

Comment by Bob Elliott

Have they dropped him? The batting looks a bit thin – no need to pick Alsop apparently and will McManus really ‘keep’ through the innings and then open (as listed on BBC), or will it be Dawson?

I’ve been watching Jennings opening again and it’s been painful; he took 16 balls to get off the mark by which time he’d edged to slip again and been dropped. Warne and ‘Bumble’ are going on about how he needs to push singles more regularly – apparently of those who have played in every match of the series he has the highest percentage of dot balls. But looking at the start by Lancs, Hameed seems similar, today at least.

Rossouw and Carbs have hamstring injuries, it says . . .

Comment by Bob Elliott

I’m intrigued by the Yorkshire score – just before lunch they are 81-9 and their opener Adam Lyth is 45*. He might then carry his bat for under 50, but already Hampshire have one man who batted through an innings, not out, for quite a few less, plus a second who finished 49*. I’ll reveal all when that innings ends.

Thanks Bob. It’s pretty grim for Alsop that he’s still not in the frame. I can’t help wondering where he might be next season. Meanwhile Yorkshire’s 10th wicket partnership is easily their best and Lyth’s score well beyond 50 now. Jennings’ latest horrid innings is over in the Test with a soft waft outside the off stump.
