They look pretty comfortable to be honest.

disappointing morning really, they've scored more than we should've let them and we're not aggressive enough to get the wickets either.

Gregory gone so 22 balls to get another for the 3rd bowling point.

The problem is we've now got very little by way of a lead to play with even if we get them quickly so we're going to need to score a lot quicker than normal to give ourselves time to bowl them out again.

bollocks, let down by the bowling after the batsmen did the job, that's fucking typical after the season we've had.

We're now relying on Alex Davies doing his bit to make sure he's defending the championship next season.

Think the wicket is just too good, not sure the bowlers have let anyone down.

I was being slightly facetious to make the point that after a summer of poor batting that's let us down time after time we might miss out because we didn't get the final bowling point.

That said we've had a couple of really poor bowling spells that we couldn't afford if we were going to really push for the win.

We’ve fucked this now. Typical considering it looks as if there’s a fair chance Lancs may win.

I am now trying to work out who I'd prefer to win it.

I think on balance, Lancashire, especially after the Hampshire tweet at the end of the 110th over.

My least favourite team that were in contention were Notts. Really not a fan of them.

Matt Lamb has the weirdest bowling action I think I've ever seen. runs 2 steps, stops, walks 2 steps, runs 2 more then bowls. Never seen anything like it.

Thank fuck for that Leach is gone. Will be interesting to see what we do from here, we'd need to be eyeing up a lead of 200 by lunch at the latest which means being a bit more aggressive than we were in the first innings.

Halle-fucking-lujah. All out finally.

Hope Sibley doesn't waste too many balls now.

See where we get to by stumps tonight. Give it a good blast for an hour in the morning...then bowl the carrot crunchers out. Easy.

Lancs lost 2 quick wickets. Can see them falling short in their run chase.

Erm.

Can't ask for more than Sibley and Yates are giving here, racing along at better than 4 an over and should see us with 120-130 lead by the end of the day if they carry on. You'd then want a target they might try to get, so 200-220 from about 65-70.

A tie at Lancs would be nice right now.
