A team with Carrick at 5 is always going to struggle.... Although I see Love at 11 suggesting an injury.
Note how many overs Jarvis bowled relative to other seamers and ask why he ended up injured so often.

Not sure what people are trying to prove here, or why.
Did notice from the scorecard that both Boycott and Butcher both passed 1000 runs in the season during the match, and it was still only July.
On the broadcasting issue I think most of the commentators and analysts have the ability to make me smile and get right up my nose at different times.
When it's the latter I stop listening.

As 3U needs it explaining. Grey got a wicket with the last ball of an over. Boycott faced the next over from the other end. For Grey's next over Boycott was still at the other end. Grey then took 3 wickets in 4 balls

And the score was 105/4 . Hardly the complete rout it became . The batsman facing was David Bairstow . Not a tail ender . There seems to be some suggestion Boycott stayed at the other end and left the tail to its fate ..

I don’t need it explaining depressed.
How do you know boycott stayed at the other end in the over between the wickets and could it not have been good bowling or negative bowling at the other Surrey bowler to keep him off strike?
The myth that Boycott hid from bowlers overlooks the opponent having a say in who they would prefer to bowl at to get wickets

I watched a lot of cricket in the 80s. Two things I fairly sure about and relevant to this thread:
Geoff didn't dodge fast bowling. Those comments are unfair
We over bowled Paul Jarvis, in a better team and more thoughtful times, he could have been a very special Yorkshire player.

Totally agree Sid on both points as my previous posts support.

I was at Abbeydale in 1977 when Wayne Daniel put two Yorkshire batsmen in hospital. Hampshire and Lumb possibly?
Boycott managed to dodge that one by playing in the Ashes test at Trent Bridge where he scored a century against an Aussie attack led by well known medium pace trundler Jeff Thomson.

Boycott embarrassed himself during the last test whilst talking about Vince's dismissal off Starc, a 90mph delivery heading down leg which hit a crack and took out off stump, claiming he'd have kept it out! He's become a parody of himself as a commentator.
