Same squad as last week – the XI plus Crane and Wheal

Yorkshire are five points and one win ahead of Hampshire. As Tigger says, 12 points will take Hampshire to 152 points, one more than a maximum points win for Somerset and, coincidentally, one more than a maximum bonus points defeat for Middlesex.

But if Middlesex win, Somerset can only get 135 points so are down. If Somerset draw with full points they get to 140, where Hampshire are now so, if Hampshire get one point tomorrow, or Somerset drop one point, Somerset have to win to overhaul them.

PS BBC Weather for the week in Birmingham suggests rain overnight tonight might hang on into tomorrow morning, and that it will be wet again on Wednesday night. Otherwise probably OK. Taunton somewhat similar as the rain moves west to east.

It’s VERY gloomy in Pompey first thing. I hope it’s brighter in Birmingham or bad light might be an issue – oops, sorry, I’m supposed to be more cheerful!

Edgbaston groundsman tweeted a swimming pool on the covers this morning!….
At least I’ve heard on the radio Vincey might be going down under !?

That’s interesting Nick – captaining the Lions? Hard to believe he’d be in the Test squad of 16/17 surely?

Michael Vaughan mentioned Vince batting at No. 3 when they were discussing the Ashes squad.

He felt they needed someone who could take advantage of loose deliveries outside off stump. No mention of nicking them to first slip though 🙂

Mind you, Vaughan did say Mason Crane shouldn’t be picked because he has only played four first class games and doesn’t appear to be able to get into the Hampshire team. I guess he’s ignoring the games he could have played if he hadn’t been yellow bib man for the England matches
