To be fair to them, this will Ben one of the better first innings scores of this round of matches. Hampshire’s 290 is the high water mark at the moment and there’s been a load of double figure skittlings.

Shame the young 'uns failed to perform today although Rhodes looked good at the start and Bell was in really good nick. However, given we were put in on a drying wicket and comparing to the scores around the country all in all a pretty decent first day.
We certainly would have been pleased last season with a score of over 250!!!

A cracking day of absorbing county cricket in lovely sunshine. Good turnout as well. The ball did a bit and this is one of the highest scores around the championship today. Plus a free cake and hot drink for members this afternoon - what’s not to like?!!!!

Bugger, I missed the free cake and hot drink! I enjoyed the days play, only way I could've enjoyed it more was if one of the newer players had contributed in a serious way.

Obviously we've not seen Sussex bat yet so can't know for sure, but as previously mentioned I think we've done well considering some of the scores around the country (see Kent v Gloucestershire)

They are going to do the free cake & hot drink at tea time on the first day’s play of every county game. It’s brilliant. Can thoroughly recommend the carrot cake & lemon drizzle. All made at Edgbaston as well apparently!

George has posted a link on Twitter to a video of one of his wickets today (a bouncer). Looks rapid!

Hopefully we don't let them back into this... Our ability to be able to quickly close games down in these early season matches is crucial.

He's going to have to take them all if we are going to get them all out. So disappointed with Barker and Wright.

You suspect fitness is always going to be an issue with Stone but then again Australia have managed it with Pat Cummins.
Lara, Tendulkar ... Pilling.

Only three bowlers - Harry Howell, Eric Hollies and Jack Bannister - have taken all ten for Warwickshire.  And Bannister's wasn't in a Championship game but against Combined Services.
So if Olly managed it, it would be an outstanding achievement. 
Whatever his final figures, he has certainly announced himself.

Actually Barker bowled some cracking balls & was unlucky not to get a wicket or two.

So 90 percent certainty of a draw given the number of overs lost... we had to get them out quickly to win... although... and at this time of year anything is possible... depending how this evening's play goes, Sussex are probably becoming the only side that can win this now if they get within 50 runs of us.... A Bears second innings quick collapse would leave a chink of light for them if they get near to the Bears total.... Cricket can be a strange game at times.

Almost certainly a draw now I reckon; I am still going to pop along tomorrow, mainly as I haven't been yet (Working Friday & Saturday, Wolves match today)

I assume the pitch is now pretty flat. The only way to get out of Div 2 is to prepare result pitches.

They'll have a tilt at a win this afternoon I imagine. Just pray we don't collapse.

First Championship century of the season- I wouldn't have picked a number 9 to score it!
