Ok, cheers

Re the point about Pollock. Worth pointing out that David Warner was written off as a T20 specialist to the extent that he was in the Australian T20 squad before he had played a first class match.

I agree about Pollock.  As far as four-day cricket is concerned, it seems like a re-run of the old Guinness ad - we've never tried him because we don't like him. 
I see that he has just scored a half-century in a four day game against Middlesex second team. 
From what I have seen of him, as an attacking opening batsman, he seems about half way between Neil Carter and Bob Barber - and Bob Barber scored one of the all-time great attacking hundreds for England against Australia at Sydney as well as a hundred before lunch for Warwickshire against the Australians.  Not sure Pollock will match that but to write him off as a just white ball slogger is a bit harsh.

"Highlights" of the first day here:

There look to be a couple of possibly dubious decisions judging by the batsmen's reactions, though nothing quite as extreme as Liam Livingstone's reaction when given out at Taunton last week - the four letter words are still ringing in my ears.

Ah! Bob Barber. Thanks for the memories. I was at Edgbaston that day prior to exile (living in Northfield).
Two other memories of him. A spat with Colin Cowdrey about a declaration. And an ability to run through County tails with his leggies.

If we bowl well after lunch, we could actually end up with a lead going into the second innings!

What is a lead?! I don't remember what one feels like!

Reasonable start to second innings against one of the better county seam bowling attacks (Brooks, Coad, Patterson and Bresnan to come). Important opening session of the third day to eliminate the first innings deficit and then build a lead. Though light rain forecast for most of the day and a short spell of heavy rain.

I have seen much promise in Liam Banks in the 2ndXI the past three seasons, he is still only 18 but has already scored sizeable hundreds. Hopefully he can bat for a good length of time in the second innings and have another game against Hampshire next week.

He should play next week anyway. Selection policy over the last month has lacked any semblance of a plan. Yet another young player in for a game or two and then junked would be tough to take.

Half way through & we are in the game (a rarity this season), very pleasing to see we haven't 'gone on holiday' as 1of 2 teams appear to have done&the guys deserve credit for that, good to see pride prevailing - fingers crossed for the weather, if we set them 180+who knows? All the pressure will be on them

And we have a lead! Only one wicket down as well, what a novelty!

Agreed, it is a fantastic contest and I em enjoying following it at work. Reminds me of that Middlesex game earlier in the season we lost by 1 wicket. Hopefully we can win this one, but with 6 wickets in hand I would make the Yorkies favourites
