  1. I believe a monsoon in, indeed, forecast at Headingley tomorrow - even a spot of rain this evening. Middlesex 2 down as I type . And Durham .
  2. Quite right, Sorry. I recall somebody mentioning yesterday on the other site that they were worried J Patel was still batting as he held out for a win against us in similar conditions a few years ago - I confused the matches.
  3. Or was it that a certain team couldn't hold on for 14? overs with 3 wickets left? Or was it that a certain team couldn't hold on for 14? overs with 3 wickets left?
  4. What's not happening? UWE or Henbury's statement? Or both ?
  5. You mean he talks straight from his elbow?
  6. Jimmy Adams gone now, ct Tres bowled Leach. 5 to go in 12 overs, but Hants are now leading by 2....
  7. 5 overs of this one left, then at least 10 with the new ball.
  8. Hmmm. 191/4, 18 overs left, Leach yet to take a wicket this innings (RvdM has just taken 2, including Vince). They couldn't could they?
  9. I note you have just suggested a declaration. I would suggest a continued thrash for another 5 overs or so and then declare - a quick 50 or so runs will be easier now than at the end of the day, if necessary. My post crossed with yours - I was referring to your CRICINFO post. They have now declared, though 587/8 leaving Hants 249 runs to avoid defeat - still 90 overs left.
  10. Not necessarily. He has said he will make an effort to come back for the final.
  11. 27/2 now - another wicket for COVE. Were the wickets due to the pitch or just rank poor cricket? - I saw Peter Trego's 1st innings dismissal and that was due to an awful shot.
  12. I'm not sure which performance is worse. Somerset or Australia against Sri Lanka: 10 for 3 in the last innings, still 400 runs behind.
  13. Certainly looking that way, although 100 is a bit pessimistic - 36 runs so far, though. And, apparently, Tres has now taken 498 FC catches!
  14. Perhaps, although Durham 2 down now - both to spin. Remember Notts....
  15. So, there we are. Somerset home to Worcs - Glos game abandoned, so Essex only get the 1 point.
  16. Well, just try typing FTG! We shall see, but, according to PhilGas, what I typed might not show as I intended.....
  17. After picking her son up from school one day, the mother asks him what he did at school. The kid replies, "I had sex with my teacher." She gets so mad that when they get home, she orders him to go straight to his room with no tea. When the father returns home that evening, the mother angrily tells him the news of what their son had done. As the father hears the news, he shouts up to his son and demands that he come down immediately to the kitchen. The father asks him what happened at school, and the son tells him, "I had sex with my teacher", whereupon the father reaches in to a cupboard and takes out a huge frying pan. 'No, Don't hit him!' screams the mother. 'I'm not going to hit him' , says the father, 'I'm going to fry him a steak - you can't expect him to be screwing his teacher on an empty stomach!'
  18. Unfortunately, you are correct. I have never understood why the England selectors, given the tragic circumstances of MTs illness, could not have made an exception and picked him for home games only.
  19. One consolation of this season's 20/20 débacle, however, is that Somerset may well decide that next season, instead of spending £MS on getting a certain CG to play a few hours of slap and tickle, it might be better to invest in getting a few strong batsmen and bowlers in for the proper game.
  20. 16/6 off the last 4 overs - we haven't really got the hang of this 20/20 thing, have we?
