    Brooks is a young 34 or whatever he is - didn't get playing till older and missed a lot of young man injuries.

    Was at Headingley for Yorks final ball defeat by Lancs yesterday. Must have been one of the hottest days cricket I've experienced in this country. Certainly made a contrast with the gloves and hats weather at Nottingham two weeks ago.

    BTW New stand looks pretty good, sadly it wasn't open to spectators though.

    Surrey looking good in the one day cup this year. That's seven wins out of seven now. Oh hang on...

    One the plus side, Spizz from Spizz Energi was in today's crowd - 'Where's Captain Kirk?' and the much better 'Soldier Soldier' etc. Was minding his own business but in full Spizz gear. Good lad.

    A couple of years ago a friend of mine was convinced a member of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (whose name I don't recall now) was sitting a few seats away from us at the Vauxhall End. He spent about half an hour summoning up the courage to go over and speak, and it turned out not to be him, which was embarrassing.

    Yorkshire continuing this seasons habit not not being able to score runs in the first inning but making loads in the second. Coad picking up a fifer.

    Surrey not managing to force the win against Kent. Notts continuing to underperform, looking at their squad you think they should be doing better than this.

    Another poor first innings batting performance from Yorks, I'm still not quite sure why we decided to bat first. Hamps 54 runs seems a pretty good lead in a low scoring match.

    Still at least it is not as bad as the lead Surrey have conceded.

    Ballance hitting another century but not enough time left for Yorks to bowl Hamps out.

    The Warks-Surrey game should have a result though, Warks just need a single wicket.

    EDIT: And Surrey lost, that's three draws and a loss so far this season.

    I feel now is a good time to join in this season, conveniently ignoring the Roy/England fuck up, and note that Sussex have taken a 343 run lead over Middlesex in the first innings, which in no way means the opposition will fight back to 550 all out by tea on day 4 like everyone else has against us so far this year.

    Won with 12 overs to spare having lost 4 hours play yesterday. 7 wickets for Ollie Robinson, 10 in the match. Big century from van Zyl and another from Ben Brown. Turning point?

    Is it really going to rain from now until eternity for the next 3 days? Lancashire bowl Worcestershire out for 98 on day one (good to see Jimmy playing and taking 4-24 btw) ...and the draw is odds on favourite at 8/11. :(

    Bizarre selection policy at Sussex where "20/20 specialist" and failed leg-spinner Will Beer, after 11 years and just 17 first class matches involving 18 innings batting at number 9, which had brought him less than 400 runs, was promoted to open the innings, presumably based on a career best score of 50 not out in his last game at Middlesex last week.

    The result? 76 not out off a mammoth 276 balls in a score of 257 for 5.

    No play Tuesday, rain.

    He scored 56 of those in boundaries, meaning the other 41 runs used up no fewer than 322 balls. That's a lot of dots in the scorebook.
