The sun is beating down at every ground that I can see on the live streams. I’m of course COMPLETELY NEUTRAL when it comes to having a preferred side but as a son of the Peak District I am thoroughly enjoying (in a neutral way) Shan Masood racking up the runs for Derbyshire.
He’s surely up there as the signing of the season already?
Have a purr over this:
The clock ticks around to 11…PLAY!
And catch up on yesterday’s happenings thanks to the peerless Tanya here:
Here’s some pre-play reading from Mr B Ronay:
Double centurion speaks!
I see KP’s at it again…
Runs glorious runs, tired bowlers and scorers!
That’s the main story from this round of the County Champo, and indeed the previous rounds too, largely dry weather and true pitches have seen the scoreboard’s up and down the land a’clattering. There have been hundreds, double hundreds and even records tumbling in this round alone, heck there’s even a few batters in with a whiff of a chance of notching up 1000 runs before the end of May, something of a run-scoring grail for the willow wielders.
Jim here on this sunny Saturday, stepping in for Tanya as she has a well deserved day off. I’ll be popping up with updates and interesting tid-bits from around the grounds throughout the day. As ever I’ll be reliant on your eyes and ears so please do keep me company and get in touch below the line, on email or the twitters.
