Well done to Carver he has done his job this morning.

Not to be for Lyth or Ballance today but lets hope Lees and Leaning get themselves going.

Agree, but Leaning out now. Need another 200 yet though to be comfortable.

...and now Lees out as well. Up to Bresnan and Rhodes now, to give us a winning chance. Can not see many runs coming from our last 4.

Would say this game is anyone's now.
If we can set over 200 I still fancy Yorkshire to win this one.

Track record says Yorkshire favourites... expect plenty more runs from the 'tail' if that's the word with this team

Credit to all today. Still 30 mins left and 94 overs bowled so far, should be well over a 100 by close of play.

Hopefully we will still be batting, then declare sometime tomorrow morning.

The bits I heard today and the scorecard look quite encouraging. If we don't get bowled out early we may have to risk losing in order to have a chance of winning.

Looking forward to catching the first session tomorrow before TMS pinches the airwaves for England v Afghanistan.

Chuck up for Tim Bresnan on his 450 first class wickets. Hope to catch his 500th sometime during the season.

YCCC a bowler down. Bresnan limps off. Problem is lower left leg. Couldn't see whether it was calf or shin. He's had lots of strapping around the foot & heal all tour. Strapping has been removed. He's gone into the Rooms. 12th man on.

Fisher was wearing training gear. He's been told to get his Whites on by Gillespie. He's in the dug out as 13th man.

I think Bresnan is done for today.

More....

Bresnan now in Training Gear. In the dugout. Ice pack on left ankle. Coffee & biscuits. Still looks done for the day.

More....

13th man Matthew Fisher brings a helmet out for Hodd. And is heavily criticised by Will Rhodes. Fair Dos. Fisher is wearing a number 35, Will Rhodes shirt.

Wonderful post above that highlights why you need to be at the ground to get a proper feel for a game!

Seam bowling is one area we have plenty of depth but Bres is the best batsman of all of them too so hope its nothing serious

I wandered to Oval 3 at Lunch. Checked with the scorers. Sidebottom had bowled 11 overs in that game.

I "love" this place. They've just started cleaning the seats in the Hospitality Boxes. You know. Just after Tea on Day 4. What forward planning.

Hate losing to anyone even though it was a friendly, but overall a very good display considering the number of players missing for various reasons.

Bresnan has almost 4 weeks before our next "proper" match to get fit, so hopefully will do.

In a way it's a continuation of the one problem last season - not enough runs from the top order, needing the lower order to bail them out. It's good that the runs are still coming from the likes of Rhodes and Hodd, but hopefully it won't be down to them all the time in the 'proper' games - otherwise they will lose more games.

A defeat! Something of a novelty.
From a distance it would appear that the match result turned on the difference in spin resources: Tredwell and Patel versus Carver, Lyth and Leaning. It's fairly easy to understand why we lost!
It's also worth reflecting on what may well prove to be a very significant shortcoming in the season ahead. Let's hope for a seamer friendly season and for the sustained fitness of our key bowlers. (Did Bad Brooks turn up at Abu Dhabi?)

By the way, my remarks shouldn't be interpreted as a criticism of young Carver. He did we'll in this match and remains a player of considerable promise.

Carver and Rhodes are the big plusses from this trip, good to see they're progressing from last season.

.....if he gets picked. Surely it will be Rhodes at 3, Gale at 4, Ballance at 5, Bairstow at 6, then 5 bowlers, or even Willey at 3 to play just as a batsman.

Not sure why you say 'surely' when giving that line up.
Surely, it will be Ballance at 3 given he keeps batting there and scoring runs?
I'd have thought Rhodes best chance of playing v Hants would be if Bresnan isn't fit.

Ballance will definitely be at three until Williamson arrives. At best, Rhodes is vying with Leaning to bat six. As for the bowling, if everyone's fit then Bresnan, Sidebottom, Patto and Brooks are in possession having won two titles I'm a row. Willey and Plunkett can't and hopefully won't expect to walk into the championship side.
