This is simpler – remembering that we won it yesterday:

Hampshire won the Toss Six times, winning 2, losing 2 with one drawn and one not yet completed

Mid-afternoon and looking at the Lancs v Surrey score and the Birmingham weather I guess in some respects it’s a good job the title doesn’t depend on this match (1974?). As for Warwicks, I’m not sure how they are going to engineer a 20-wicket game given that a draw, even without bonus points, is sufficient to ensure our second place.

We are well capable of losing 20 wickets even with the help from the weather. It all seems to be going Lancs’ way. Kevan James seems to be annoyingly upbeat about it on commentary…

We’ve lost 20 wickets in five of this year’s 13 matches so far and the worst case was of course last week v Kent when our combined total was 357 – 85 more than Warwickshire have right now (no play, rain and bad light). Our totals in the other two defeats were 449 at Chelmsford and 450 at the Oval, while we posted 546 to beat Gloucs and 590 in the rain-ruined draw v Lancs which might have won it.

I made a comment ahead of the Edgbaston game that in fairness to the relegation fight we should field a strong side. It’s interesting however that despite the rewards for Hampshire or Lancashire finishing second, Surrey are managing to cope (?) without Pope, Foakes and Worrall who all played last week. At least it’s raining there as well.

Yorkshire (3 bowling points) are now 18 points ahead of where Warwicks were at the start of the game and Kent (7 bat/bowl points with one more looming) are 21 ahead, so Warwicks MUST win and they will only stay up if Kent or Yorkshire lose. If Warwicks don’t reach a score of 350, Kent are safe.

They declared so Kent are safe and Mo Abbas stuck on 49 wkts. Surrey now five down and heading for the follow-on
