About 200 more overs left assuming no more rain and not too much bad light and we’re around 270 behind. We need either (i) 350 and four batting points or (ii) a draw or (iii) a win – the latter is probably dependent on Warwickshire having to set up a ‘situation’ if they can’t bowl us out cheaply tomorrow.

Might they? We’ve lost three games this year and in each case batted in the two innings combined for not much more than 100 overs:

Surrey at the Oval – 119 overs

Kent at the Ageas Bowl – 101.5 overs

Essex at Chelmsford – 100.5 overs

Tom Alsop is 3* overnight having started his innings on 923 runs with an average of 46.15. His previous best season was 2017 when he scored 737 runs at 35.09. Apart from two matches in his debut season of 2014 he has never played in Div Two previously.

Sadly he was out for four although they look good candidates for the follow-on so he has one more chance to reach four figures. Meanwhile, the captain excepted, it’s been very disappointing at Edgbaston so far (bat & ball)

Comment by Dave Allen

Strange stat: Hampshire’s batters scored seven centuries in the first five matches and just one in the next eight. Now it seems there probably won’t be another at Edgbaston. (Last year they scored seven in the first three matches, then just two more)

Liam rewarded for his heroics in the last match – dropped by England.

Keith Barker goes to 50* and for the season 565 runs, his second highest aggregate overall (608 in 2016)

Comment by Dave Allen

If we can get to 400 and yet Warwickshire can find a way to win the game I think that would be everyone happy all round. Yorkshire need a strong tail end performance to make that scenario obsolete

I say that and barker goes. I wonder what the tie breaker situation is vis a vis Lancs vs hants it 350 can be reached. Maybe lancs finishing second in all 3 comps would be the funniest outcome

Comment by Michael S

First Tie Break is most wins (us) but it won’t apply now. Yorkshire lost, so one team will be happy at Edgabston tomorrow and one won’t. Meanwhile Mo Abbas has his 50th wicket.

Comment by Dave Allen

So basically if we win we get second place and if Warwickshire win Yorkshire are relegated. Some might say that’s a win-win situation.

I couldn’t possibly comment!
