Early finish

Weather looks decent till about tea time, hopefully whatever rain is coming is delayed until a bit later.

Fourth batting point is the first priority, if we can deprive Middlesex of their third bowling point that might prove useful too.

Probably a routine bog standard days cricket in a match that has been spoilt by the weather. Then again perhaps something wonderful will happen, I'm ever hopeful and will be following from a distance.

Apparently if you look at the BBC website Middlesex have had 2 points deducted for slow over rates at the Oval last week. As the saying goes every little helps. They are however appealing so watch this space.

I'd put money on their appeal being successful with the panel likely to be made up of Gatting Fraser and Strauss.

I bet they blame the crossbow incident.

The second-hand bookstall has the biography of Gubby Allen by E W Swanton - a veritable mountain of pomposity into which Strauss might fit comfortably.

Fraser and Gatting are more like normal folk.

There's been no Offical announcement apparently. The only reason anyone can think it could be is that at the time of the 'arrow' incident intervening at the Oval last week Middlesex were carrying a slow over rate from the first innings into the second, and once the game was safe they would have declared and quickly bowled whatever overs were necessary to pick it back up. Apparently standard procedure by them but on this occasion thwarted by the arrow. As TU says the committee will probably consist of Middlesex cronies and be brushed under the nearest Axminster.

The points were deducted on August 31st the day of 'arrow gate' so maybe there's legs to this after all. The plot thickens Holmes.

Sounds like we'll be starting on time. Doesn't look like a batting day- ideally we'll get the fourth batting point and then get bowling at them...

Both Fraser and Gatt are indeed veritable mountains themselves these days.

Struggling for the batting point now, but at least can get bowling at them soon hopefully.

Well, they have their third bowling point. Can we get 14 from 8 with Ryan at the crease. I'm thinking 'yes'!.

-----------------------------------------------------

We did! Well done, Ryan! (and Tim)

Now can we bowl well and get them out for under 200?

I'm struggling to remember how the regulations go these days. After the loss of the entire first day, does the follow-on figure now fall to 100 or does it stay at 150?

The follow on target is 150 for 3/4 day match reduced to 100 for 2 day match.

Having got the extra point is there a reason to score 3 runs in 3 overs ? Hit out , get out ,get bowling ...

Amen to that. Give ourselves every chance of getting the three bonus points! What is going on?

Pretty useful total in the end and well done getting another bonus point. Good to see Bresnan scoring runs again after a lean time.
Now we need to bowl them out for under 200 to get 4 more bonus points than them and giving chance of victory if weather holds.

Ben Coad opening the bowling with Siddy. Hopefully he can make the role his own next season.
