Got to say it again, Worcestershire, this is the worse team I think I've seen at the four day game.  Won the toss, decided to bat.  Crap decision, crap batting.  42 from Moeen and that's about it.  Utter, cheap shit garbage.

Good morning for Bears winning toss and batting needed a good start in the conditions first thing, which they didn't get losing Sibley 0.
Then Rhodes and Rob Yates progress to 105/1 at lunch.
Rhodes has his 50 with Yates a few short of his.

Yes, a good start against a top team Any word on Norwell returning anytime soon? The guy looked very promising during the couple of games he managed to play in.

At least Moeen got a few runs, he really needed that and it'll do him the world of good.

Good day for Warwickshire. Could really do with a win as Notts have also had a good day.

Yes, we need to bowl them out for about 250 max. The Bears bowling attack is down to the bare bones but they can do it. Hopefully we get Davies early.

na Notts have had a crap day. They were bowled out for 184 so no batting points, And Yorks are effectively 225 for 2 with 2 days left. If they bat till tea. Notts lose

Three promotion spots this season, so looking good at the moment got Glos. Especially as they've built a big first innings lead at Derby.

Let's hope that Smith and Taylor don't suddenly decide that Chris Dent is the answer to England's opening woes

Some very dodgy looking scores at Canterbury.

As we know, though, only Warwickshire ever get points deducted.

Christ! Worcestershire are going to finish bottom.  Role out the excuses again today after yet another shambolic batting collapse.  Northants manage to get 370 on the same pitch we struggle to get to 200 on. Hopeless.

Warks game could go either way tomorrow. Win and we would be pretty much safe.

Disappointing second innings for the Bears. But, a 257 lead is handy on a 4th day wicket. Jeets could be key here. Middle order failed badly today.

I listened to some of the commentary from the Kent v Essex game. Dan Norcross and the other commentators were saying that there was nothing untoward about the pitch. They thought that two or three of the LBWs had inside edges.

Luckily Andrew Samson happened to be at the game as a spectator and came into the commentary box to run through all the records that were falling.
