Not even the best/worst Somerset dismissal.

This one is Cracker Jack. This is why crane should replace moeen.

Should've realised from that dismissal that Moeen would have a good series.

Good job Yorkshire had a good start or they would be right in it. If they don't remember how to bat by the time the Championship resumes they still could be dragged in.

Hants v Lancs has been called off and so Essex now have a 41 point lead at the top of the division. If this godawful weather continues, they might only need two or three dozen more from their remaining five games.

Terrible start by Essex at home to Somerset. In the last few days, my mind has been thinking back to the 1988 campaign, when Kent were leading the table in August and Somerset weren't doing too well. The West Country team then came down to Canterbury and annihilated the hosts, who took just 1 point from the game - the same margin by which they eventually finished as runners up. Hmm.

Meanwhile, a Macca inspired Lancs - looking to reduce the gap between the top two positions - have started well against the other Div One basement side, Warks.

A good fightback with the ball, but now a familiar problem of bowling out the tail.

The obvious candidate for this would be Hampshire v Yorkshire.

This was played from April 21-April 24.

I can't see any reason why it could not have been played during this week instead.

The only reason I can think was that one or both preferred this week to be blank in case they made it to T20 Finals Day. Which in Hampshire's case has turned out to be the case.

It was a compelling three quarters of a day at Chelmsford. Amir opened proceedings dramatically with two wickets in his first over but, after obliterating Overton's castle, he began clutching his back and bowled only one more over. Bess and Groenewald played in the diligent manner of the modern tailender to push Somerset to the slenderest of leads before a double strike by Harmer (often turning the ball too much) called a halt to the innings.

Overton's rumbustious opening burst produced lbw shouts upheld against Chopra (looked high but if you don't play a shot, hard cheese) and Lawrence, who completed a pair. The ball was well on top and runs continued to be terribly difficult to come by. I'd been saying to my pals that, after weeks of fairly soulless white ball hitting, it was great to see batsmen having to get their heads down and battle hard...and then Bopara ran down the chain so far at Leach that Davies could have stumped him, replaced the bails and stumped him again. Thankfully, Wheater restrained the more cavalier side to his game to share in an unbroken stand of 78 with Browne, equalling the highest of the match so far. Shortly after tea, the heavens opened with an unpredicted downpour of biblical proportions and that was that.

Player of the day - and the match so far - was unquestionably Nick Browne, who has now made exactly one quarter of the runs in this low scoring encounter. Never pretty, sometimes streaky, he dug a great big trench around his wicket and fought off everything sent down at him.

Sadly, it appears that tomorrow could be totally lost to rain. However, if Amir gets another day's rest and Essex can add a further hundred on Thursday, a gripping finale might yet be possible. With Lancs in the process of stuffing Warks, Essex will certainly crave the opportunity.

Back spasm for Amir then? Good read, as ever.

You can't beat Browne.

Cheers, DVS.

Looks like there might be a shower or two on Thursday afternoon too. With Lancs very well placed to gain a maximum against Warks, next week's visit by Essex to Old Trafford could be a real 48 pointer !

Also deliciously ironic if the Manchester weather allows a game to be completed, while the driest county in England is waterlogged.

Indeed. I'm sitting at home wondering if the Met Office has turned me over again. There are probably folks sheltering at Old Trafford feeling the same.
