Weather playing with the umpires

September 13 2017, 3:27 PM 

Weather seems to be having a laugh with the umpires at Taunton.

Just when they say it's fit to play it rains again.

Was pinning my hopes on Chanderpaul but the rain will do nicely.

Lancashire not doing us any favours - 5 down now for 92.

Make that 99-6.

Essex could be Champions by this time tomorrow the way things are going, and Yorkshire could be in the bottom 2.

Lancs are being a bit spineless here. Don't they want a local derby?

As I expected after Somerset posted over 300 on their own wicket as they would have anticipated Lancashire to opt to bowl first. Fear that Somerset will pick up 22 points and overtake us in the table. How on earth are we lower than Lancashire in the table?

Hameed/Chanderpaul

If ever Lancashire(and most importantly us) needed a pair of stone wallers this is the moment.

Weather looks a bit better for Uxbridge for tomorrow but it looks like a quick shower can wreak havoc.

At least September cricket isn't boring.

Still a wet outfield at Uxbridge so the umpires have called for a early lunch at 12:00 noon.

Very far from drying weather here in London. From the report on Cricinfo, the field sounds so wet and slippery that player safety is a real issue. Furrher rain forecast for 2pm and 6pm today and pretty steadily after lunch tomorrow. I wonder if there will be any further play today or at all.

And a delayed start at Taunton, too.

11:00: brief reprieve: they are playing now. Go Hameed!

I see Josh Shaw is getting among the wickets again for Gloucestershire. He now has 50 first class wickets in total in his nascent career, albeit mostly in the second division. Still, it must increase both his experience and his confidence. Perhaps Yorkshire knew what they were doing by giving him this exposure.

Can anyone who's seen him play recently give an opinion - is Hameed grinding out gritty innings in the mould of Atherton v South Africa, or is he being scratchy and unable to score?

Another delay at Uxbridge. Inspection at 2. Just when three hours of rain is due.

Don't see any more play happening in this one.

Essex will be Champions shortly. Warwickshire 64-7.

Surely we can manage to beat Warwickshire next week, but with our luck this season with injuries and England callups, we will probably get 4 days of rain and only pick up a few points.

Lancs putting up a decent show in the 2nd inns. Lot of work for Somerset to do still. Couple of showers be handy.

Lankies 4 down with Chanderpaul out and they are still in arrears so not looking good for us.

Middx announced play would start at 15:30, at which point it deluged again and full covers are back on. Picture on their Twitter account.

Now they're losing more wickets than they'd want in the hunt for Peter points, so that's looking reasonably good for us.


Currently 7 down

Drop a rain

September 14 2017, 8:15 PM 

A decent downpour over the southern half of the United Kingdom tomorrow morning at about 10:30 would be more than useful.

If that inconveniences anybody in Div 2, sorry.
