The commentary at Headingley and a report from Northampton both suggest that the crowds have thinned out rather than boosted in the evening. People have come in, but more who were there earlier have left.

I'm not surprised that they are reporting the people leaving as the commentators seemed to be against this (on the basis that it would interfere with their evening dining plans) before it even started.

Rotten luck with the timing. Last night was gloriously sunny.

Gotta say though that dining plans are a consideration, if only for reasons of blood-sugar.

It seems to make too much sense to switch the first and second intervals around (ie 20 minutes then 40 minutes) for them to do this.

First of all, like most things the concept could do with some time to bed in so people become aware of it. But the ECB seem to go completely against that basic principle and anyway there is now so little first-class cricket in July to mid-August, which would be the perfect time for day-nighters.

Secondly I'd be interested to know how much effort the counties have made to promote this, particularly with the adjacent community, and whether any of them made any effort to make it attractive - beer tents, cricket for kids, etc.

With Essex in a strong position in this vital game sadly it looks as if that will come true for today at least, with persistent rain forecast almost everywhere today, and some tomorrow.

It's your fault!

Shame, I was looking forward to listening to Cook and Browne resume this afternoon.

You'd have already have had a session's worth if the game was being played at the proper times.

I've just asked the ECB press office for you and their explanantion makes perfect sense.

If you have the long interval between 6.20 and 7 pm, people who turn up after work arrive in the ground and promptly see the players troop off for 40 mins.

I know it is unpopular to say so on here, but the ECB are not idiots and there is a lot of careful thinking and planning goes into these kind of decisions which are examined from every angle...

If you tell people the long interval is going to be between 6:20 and 7pm then they can just turn up at 7pm.

The ECB press office have done an abysmal time of publicising what time lunch and tea are supposed to be - that's true of the 11am starts as much as 2pm starts.

.
The problem with that is some folks may decide to pop into a pub beforehand "Just for one, to kill time" and end up staying put for the duration. We've all done it at some time or other.

I know we live in a 'nanny state'. But it really is not the job of the ECB press office to inform people in Hove or Chelmsford what time the ruddy intervals are...

Time for the counties to take some responsibility for marketing their own product in their local marketplace, surely?

Can't get too worked up about this experiment as it is unlikely to ever be more than a single round of first class matches, maybe with the option of two if some counties find it much more financial beneficial.

Just a shame that Jos Buttler doesn't seem any more at home with the pink ball than he is with a red one.

After scoring 2 and 1 looks like he may well be around the Lancs side more this year than in the last couple of seasons. But as I can't see Hameed in the test side, I wonder whose place in the top 6 Jos will be given? Hameed, Davies (w), Livingstone, Croft (c), Chanderpaul or Vilas? Or was him opening this afternoon a clue?

Anderson now bowled his most (first class) overs for Lancashire since 2005.

This season's tally is 178.3 beating his previous bests of 171 in 2007, 166 in 2014. He bowled 512 in 2005.

21 wickets is also his best (equal) haul since 2005. But his 2005 figures included 3 5/fors and 1 10/for whilst this year his best is 4-20 (championship) except for the 5/10 against the students.

Umeed is a record holder, slowest 100 in county history 494 minutes, 392 balls.

14 minutes longer than one of the Denton twins in 1914

@RobJ_Cricket
Nick Browne and Alastair Cook set a new Essex record for the opening wicket: 317-0. Beats the 316 by Paul Pritchard and Graham Gooch in 1994

5 overs to get 2 wickets for a bowling point for Middx. Cook goes on 193.

That was against Kent so, I was very happy to be at Chelmsford today to see it erased from the records.

Thought the previous record holder would have been Geoff Boycott.

So Browne and Cook set a record opening stand for Essex.

Browne's last 3 centuries have all been double tons.

This one was against one of the best attacks in county cricket as well.

A fantastic achievement to set the record and they seemed to accelerate enough to give us a great chance of forcing the win.

Credit too to 'sub' batter Varun, who clattered a round hundred off 75 balls. Just two 4s but six 6s. I imagine he enjoyed Mr Rayner's bowling.
