At lunch, with five sessions left, the Roses game is very tight, but Worcs are still on top v Surrey. All the remaining first innings are concluded. In terms of maximum points available:

Surrey – one game to finish, plus two matches left, can get to 287 points

Somerset – two matches left can get to 226 points (At this point, Surrey have 223 points so a draw will be sufficient)

Relegation? Any two from six perhaps?

Essex: Maximum available 189 – with one to finish, plus two more matches

Hampshire: 181 – two more matches

Yorks: 174 – one to finish, two to play

Notts: 171 – one to finish, one to play

Worcs: 160 –  one to finish, two to play

Lancs: 152 – one to finish, one to play.

The other key point is that the games remaining include Yorks v Hants, Hants v Lancs, Yorks v Worcs and Essex v Worcs, so the maximum match points (24) will rarely be available to all the sides in some difficulty.

It’s after tea now and everything remains tight although, weather permitting, I think all three Div One games will finish in win/lose (tie?). I’ve been hoping whatever happens that we’d end up in the same Division as Sussex next year but their heavy defeat at Durham while Kent & Warwickshire won, makes promotion less likely. They play Warwicks next week at Hove in a crucial match.

Don’t think Sussex’s batting will be able to compete in Division One. It is very weak really. Good bowling attack though. We really missed out on not signing Ollie Robinson.

Extraordinary that six teams could be relegated from Division One. If there were two extra matches, it wasn’t inconceivable that Somerset would be dragged into the equation.

Worcs have just lost their last six wickets for 22, so Surrey need three more runs to win than they managed in the first innings.
