Excellent report, R&O

This turned into a massive 32 pointer.

Luckily it went our way. Commentators reckon Bears might be in trouble for over zealous sledging of Eskinazi.

Thanks for report,and the texts during the days play.
This sure was a 48 pointer,and scraped it.
Too close for comfort though!!

There was an unsavoury incident yesterday involving Eski and their bowler,it went on for a bit and umpire stepped in....was all Warwickshire and Eski not at fault.

Enjoy the Anchor,cheers for the company 1st and 2nd day,
Month of county rest,then welcome the same lot back to lords

Great report R&I, really captures the tension.

Note for editor - that rather unsavoury photo is from Lake Garda, not Guardia.

Great report, Sir.

Thank you.

Listening to the radio commentary made me very nervous indeed.

The level of "encouragement" from the Warwickshire players that the microphones picked up really went to demonstrate how it's two against eleven out there.- Nothing bad said, but by golly, they created an atmosphere that our boys had to block out and get through.

As Simmo said after Abbey DooDah - "We don't do boring".

Game in hand, Essex playing Lancs away and Yeeeeaawwwksheeeya at Scarborough .............

Starting to feel a bit more positive .........

Thank you Rogers and Out for sharing the tense occasion. That's two tight CC finishes in a row. And tonight's game.

From my overseas Ceefax view of last day it was close throughout. We did not lose wickets in clusters and report confirms importance of all our partnerships.

I can feel more comfortable about our league position now.

R and O. A great report on a day I could not make. Thanks very much.

The tension with 9 down and 7 required must have been unbearable.

The 8th wicket adding 17 was certainly crucial. Our first win over The Bears since 2001. Happy to have seen a part of both.
