Well today is a pretty big day. Glorious sunny weather. Bat well and could have a great chance of 20+ points. Bat shite and we’re relying on Surrey.

Its going to be the later isn’t it?

I know I am the eternal pessimist but does anyone else have a bad feeling about today?

I'd like us and Surrey to both still be batting this time tomorrow

Hmmm. Three more wickets down already.

57/5 as I type - some pretty poor shots it has to be said, particularly Tom Banton who appeared to be still in 20/20 mode.

Looks like some lively wickets around the country, but then again doubtless variable overhead conditions, desperation etc.

As it stands we're 110/4 which is alright, considering some of the scores around! Steady?

Sussex are 145/6 at Derbyshire- the latter were 138ao!

Northants made 217 which puts Durham into the driving seat? Durham 52/6! If those 2 can take points off and damage each other all good.

Glamorgan will likely make 350 but maybe not 400, they're 347/6 v Leicestershire.

Nothing riding on it but Lancs 259ao and Middlesex 75/6. Confirmed champions Lancashire as expected!

Surrey collapsing as well. Hoping the wicket there is only going to get worse but can see Cook being 150no later this afternoon 😩

The weather in Southampton is supposed to improve this afternoon - excellent batting conditions for Hampshire?

This Abbott bloke is pretty good, though: 6/11 off 11 overs with 8 maidens.

59/7 now, although we have avoided the follow-on.

It's ridiculous to be playing 4 day cricket this late in the season anyway, though I get it from a commercial POV. I know it's not just this season but it's a bit of a nonsense.

We've been very lucky with the weather so far. By "we" I don't mean any side in particular, I mean the 2 divisions in general! Plus the 2 Tests, especially at The Oval!

You guys must be uniquely unlucky in terms of title contenders.

How on earth Essex won from there...then the Middlesex v Yorkshire debacle 2 years ago. If Kent had even posted 100 in the above then they win probably, title on its way to Taunton.

Now the forecast in what has been a nice September looks wet next week!

Daytimes look just about ok.

Rain forecast later in the day

200 up!

:clapping:

Wasn't expecting it at various points of this innings. It's ridiculously tight this battle for the last 2 places though and yet may become tighter still!

The commentators in the Somerset game were saying there was an extra 10 minutes before lunch as we had 8 wickets down, but I presumed the session was 10 minutes longer to make up for some lost overs yesterday wasn't it?

Me thinks 196 will be the highest score in this match!

Possibly although it may dry out a bit. Anything over 150 will be nigh impossible to chase.

Annoying last wicket stand, you ***** !

You definitely don't need the 10 being the top scorer and the last wicket being the highest stand. 😮

Ha true...

It definitely won't be easy- wouldn't surprise were we to lose early wickets.

I hope the pressure of the situation, the opportunity doesn't get to us.

Game rapidly going away from Somerset now. Once the ball gets about 25 overs old its flat.  

Essex seemingly piling on runs. As if I couldn't hate Surrey anymore.

8 down but I fear anything over 150 on this shit excuse for a wicket will be tough. 

Time for Vijay to earn his wage*

*be out for another duck

Perhaps we could try and break Abotts bowling arm while he's batting.. that might be the only way to win it.

Just now, Mr Popodopolous said:

Will Hampshire be docked points for an inadequate pitch I wonder- or is it conditions based, the flurry of wickets?

We're 8/1 chasing 111...will be nervy.

Test ground? Not a chance.

Apparently Gus Fraser is requesting that Somerset be deducted points for it however.

Vince with his only score of the summer would be against us. Killing the game off for us.

Sounds about right.

Like I said earlier, you seem pretty uniquely unlucky in title races.

Given Essex have had some lively pitches this summer- well I assume so, helps account for their home record, any ECB Inspectors etc? Guessing they're just the right side of the line...

@Midred

Sounds your best bet. No bad weather forecast.
