1) When we have a dry summer, it makes money.
2) Test Cricket makes huge sums, a lack of longer games will hurt our test side


English Cricket Board shooting themselves in the foot just as the FA did with English football allowing so many average foreigners in our game which has basically killed any hopes of England being great again !

I know he scored a ton but, what the hell was Ferret boy doing batting at number 9??
Every game I predict a 3 - 1 Leeds win, I am traditional like that.

Jack generally bats low down the order for Yorks

What was his batting position at Northants Mav ?

11, if it had been possible for him to bat lower than that, he would have done!

Have a great day, saw some of the highlights yesterday and it was swinging like a good 'un! Hopefully we can pile on a few and then get stuck in with the ball again :tup:

An American grabs his first wicket for us as Warwickshire go 4 down early and Trott unable to bat...chasing 500 plus

Cheers Haighy, Norfolk & Swan.....I had a very enjoyable day in the sun :-D

Thank god Adam Lyth led the line with a gritty deserved century. It wasn't pretty as it took Lyth over half an hour to score his first runs of the day & then he got stuck in the 90's which seem to be an age. Relief & a standing ovation when he struck the run to achieve his 100, Adam jumped in the air as he made the crease. Unfortunately no other batsman got in although Ballance & Hodd looked in good nick !

Lancashire looked deep in trouble at 81 for 4 but then showed resistance in the final hour to take them to within 9 of the 150 runs deficit

Looks like Yorkshire will wrap up a roses victory shortly after bowling Lancs out for 209 in their 2nd innings. Yorkshire need 59 for the win and are currently 34 without loss so 25 required

Excellent Rich :tup:

Did I choose the wrong day although this match will be over by 2.30pm

Sidebottom 3 for 38, still a fantastic bowler :-D
