A noted psychologist* speaks: "The AO green is a strong, bright and warm colour. It is extremely powerful and should stand the team in good stead for the tournament. The colour is reassuring and the team will feel calm and balanced when wearing the kit. This will help them to focus and they will not lose their cool if the going gets tough."

All the psychologists I've come across concur that red is the winner's colour (like last year's kit). I'll give it a season, max.
A couple of overs before Matt Fisher's unfortunate drop, he'd been gesturing to the balcony about the sun, so not surprising it went down. Credit for his catching and solid bowling otherwise though: Hameed's wicket was important. It's a shame that Livingstone ruined Plunkett's figures - he'd looked potent until that point, and when he combined with Rashid, Lancs were bamboozled during their first 8 overs going for just 21/1. Handscombe also impressed us with his sharp boundary fielding - do your worst, ECB it could still be a thrilling season!
