raydetmold

christoff

marchy22

no chance now

Tynevalleyblackcat

Having listened to the commentary from the start, I realise conditions are not easy, but it will get a fair bit harder once the run rate creeps over 6.

Update

The ground's pretty doughy and at one end the ball is keeping particularly low. Dynamos 49-5.

4:56pm

christoff

Easier to say than do though howay lads need to win this

poolynorm

Aftas Panther.Fancy batting last man? Don't suppose Colwyn Bay is on your list of grounds visited.

raydetmold

exactly TVBC

Tynevalleyblackcat

The way to take the pressure off here is to score some runs. Its almost as if we are standing around waiting for the next wicket to fall. Don't die wondering and play some shots please.

poolynorm

Its a small ground Ray.I was actually there on a club tour game in the 90's.Not as big as the Font.

raydetmold

Tristan

lets hope they can eat up these runs. must be off now, haway durham!

Tristan

great chance for richardson to push his claims for the first team here, modest total that could be achieved with one good partnership, rocky & richardson easing us to this win would cement the idea of them two being the future of our 4 day side

poolynorm

Its an outground Tristy which has had buckets load these last few weeks.

Update

Michael Richardson joins Mark Stoneman (11*).

4:27pm

marchy22

Tristan

i guess its pooly, ray, bryn, christoff, stan drop, collyFTM, safcluke, marchy, roker73, tristan then, no sign of pooly with his scrap of paper, guess he was too busy padding up and wiping the crumbs off his whites

poolynorm

Sorry chaps computer crashed.See Tristy's back.Not sure when he can bat.Probably about 7.

marchy22

dont think so, u and pooly should knock this total off between urselves

Tristan

Tristan

have i missed out anyone?

Tristan

no probs there like. tristan, pooly, ray, bryn, christoff, stan drop, collyFTM, safcluke, marchy, roker73

Tristan

2-22 from will smith, a very welcome surprise that

marchy22

havent heard from him in a while if he doesnt return soon u will have to pick the order

Tristan

assuming he is still around?

Tristan

i think pooly should pick the order, unfair of me to waltz in and start barking orders, done a great job so far

marchy22

pooly lead the bowlers well in ur absence what batting order do u fancy

Tristan

and to think you wanted to resign the captaincy pooly

Tristan

Good over from Rushy.

marchy22

onions was the best bowler on show but that wont put him ahead of finn the ecb love finn and he is from a fashionable county in their eyes

safcluke

afternoon all, great that by Tino Best, bowling was pathetic.

marchy22

van ja***dhjsajkf how ever u spell it is a big wicket

Stan Drop

Good afternoon all. I'm sorry I'm late - been watching the Tino best show! Bunny "pick of the bowlers" according to the commentariat. 4 wkts and by a distance the most economical. I reckon that that performance now puts him ahead of Finn. 50/3 gerrin lads!
