I guess the collapse hasn't come as too big a surprise as we always mess up when playing Sussex on television.

This collapse has been coming since the last one and the one before that. It's inevitable when you are dependent upon the lower order to keep you afloat that a number of times in the season they shall fail, leading to a sub-200 score. And let's be honest, it was down to some very shoddy batsmanship, particularly from the two set batsmen. I don't buy into the theory that it's down to movement of the feet. There are plenty of good batsmen who don't move their feet, especially at county level. It's about poor shot selection and a lack of composure in pressure situations. You don't need to be Don Bradman to score at county level but you do need to have a bit of street smarts about you. Nottinghamshire have thrown this game down the pan and it's the crap batsmen again who are to blame. Samit Patel apart who has made one of the higher scores in this match so far - our best bowler and batsman in the match, so even if he did throw it away, he deserves praise. As for Neil Edwards, well. The guy is plain crap and we were able to say as much before he even joined. He still hasn't scored a hundred away from Taunton back when it was in its heyday of flatness. Fact is he's not a good batsman. If he'd been brought up on a fair pitch, an average of 20ish would be a fair reflection of his ability/inability. He is comfortably the worst batsman we've got and that's saying something. If you were to rank the 11 we've started with in terms of their batting ability, you'd probably have him at 10 in this match.

And over 50% more than our 2nd highest scorer!

Just showed the ball from Khan again that edwards got hit - edwards didnt do anything he just backed off terrible shot or no shot it wasnt even a bouncer now hospital lets hope thats the last we see of him


Cant we get butcher as batting coach, hes also found that A Patel doesn't look right something to do the way he brings his bat down and anything coming in to him, hes going to struggle

As this will be over in 3 days, can someone email Sky and ask them to show a repeat of the final day at Old Trafford last year to fill their empty day 4 shedule?!

It's not over till it's over - we usually bat better second time around after being pasted the first time. I know what you're thinking - it would be quite some achievement to bat worse. But I've got a feeling we could yet make a game of it.

I think it was the wrong decision to put Notts in again - it gives us a small hope.

Can't see anything in your response to argue with. We've threatened to collapse all season, but – apart from the first innings at Headingley – someone has usually managed to dig us out of a mess. Usually it has been the lower order, plus a Sammy century against Hampshire. Hales has generally batted well, with three 80s and a 50, but generally you feel the rest of the upper order aren't going to last long.

Hopefully the x-rays that Mullaney and Edwards have gone for don't show any breaks, otherwise Newell and Johnson will have to get their pads out for the Championship match against Warwickshire – especially with Hales and now Sammy missing.

Akhil goes, 30/1.

I'd put money on us being at least three down if and when we reach 50, because we're Nottinghamshire and that's how we roll.

Well it could be said that we are 3 down all ready with edwards and mully at hospital and doubts if they will bat again

Wagh's reactions are so slow that the short pitched ball was almost at the boundary before he (unnecessarily) moved his body out of the way!

He is a walking wicket.

Leave the guy alone - he's probably already registered Notts' top score this innings.
