Quite a season for the Overton brothers but also for our no.1 poster AGod who is only 41 away from 38000 posts in his 13 year career with us. Should reach it by tea.

Does anybody think he might declare at tea and give the rest of us a chance to catch up?

You have some way to go LoL You also have to remember that total is on this version so doesn't take unto account the other half of Grockles' life before 2007 stretching back to "94

Plenty of tight finishes this afternoon. Will Peter Trego get the winning runs for Notts?

Surrey need 251 more, so it should be plain sailing for a side of that calibre...

hahahahahah - Surrey will, almost certainly, be rolled out by Simon Harmer.

Will Yorks avoid the indignity of being the first side to lose to Notts in a CC game in living memory?

Watch this space...

With no relegation, how to explain Worcs not declaring to try and force a win vs Glamorgan - I mean they're 333 ahead and it's already past 2pm - how many do they think they need vs the might of Glamorgan!?

Looks like Essex and Kent are the reasonably strong sides in the Southern group?

What about the Northern? Lancashire? Looks like Yorks are going to roll over Notts in the end, unless Pete and Samit can come to the rescue.

Trego now out so not long before Notts collapse completely to give the Yorkies 2 wins

See Harmer took 14 wickets in the Chelmsford dust bowl but don’t suppose the Cricket Liaison Officer will have any cause for concern!

Per Andrew Samson:

"Twins both scoring a fifty and taking 4 wickets in an innings in a first-class match:

A Bedser 73 & 4-14 & E Bedser 60 & 6-56
Surrey v Glamorgan Cardiff 1951

C Overton 53 & 4-12 and J Overton 68 & 4-26
Somerset v Northamptonshire Northampton 2020"

I'm sure Northants were heartily sick of the sight of the Overtons by match's end..

Glamorgan now hanging on at 141-7, so still looks a fairly major misjudgement by Worcs, unless they can force the final three out in the blink of an eye?

That's it - drawn. Had they declared, say, 20 overs and 60 runs earlier they would, presumably, have had an excellent chance of victory.

With neither promotion nor relegation at stake, I find it hard to understand a defensive mindset like that.

Whilst winning the group is the aim of course i really dont think the other 5 teams in our group are our competition.

It is the top 2 points scorers from the 3 divisions so we need to keep an eye on Essex Yorkshire Derbyshire currently.
No great glory winning our group if it doesnt bring enough points to make the final.

Looks very much like we will need 5 wins given our aversion to gaining batting points.

Worcestershire are on the radar now, 8 points for a draw and several batsman on form for bonus points, they're only 3 points in the table behind us. Will we have a full squad for the last match against them? No England duties?

Essex haven't lost since April 2019. Also that guy Higgins had 11 wickets for Gloucestershire. Just saying

At the moment an Essex vs Somerset final would be no surprise. However, as WSM implies we may not be able to afford to have any rain affected draws, given we don't score batting points.

The forecast for the next round of games is unpromising.
