WCCC vs Derbyshire
#21
I can't believe 16 seasons with Trott will have come and gone by September. I suppose all we can say is a simple "Thank You, Trotty"

Terrific day for the Bears. Fantastic composure from Wright, Trott and Lamb. Power to add in the morning!

We were under pressure after Hain was dismissed but Trott and Lamb grafted the game away from Derbyshire. Lamb looks an excellent prospect.

Good day for the Bears and with fine weather forecast for the next couple of days we should be in with a chance of winning this game.

Did anyone else think Godleman, the Derbyshire captain, let us off the hook? Critchley was bowling well and causing problems and he took him off and put him on at the City End. After that he was nothing like as effective. Credit to Trotty and Lamb though for knuckling down and getting through a tough period. Trotty's boots will be big ones to fill.

Foot down tomorrow; some quick runs in the morning will put us in prime position for another win I fancy; Lamb really did well this afternoon.

Here's a pretty reliable Derbyshire view -

Brilliant bowling from Jeetan, 10 wickets in the match and a miserly economy rate in the Second innings.

A good all round team performance to set up what is looking like a commanding win.

Yes great day of cricket in the sunshine. Team look very cohesive. Very different to last year. Can we please clone Jeets?

I assume Sidebottom's injured as he didn't bowl in the second innings. With Barker and Stone already struggling it's just as well Jeets is in fine form.

Yes, Sidebottom strained his side in the first innings.
I believe that both Barker and Stone are very close to fitness so at least one of them may be available for the next match. Also, our old friend O H-D is apparently bowling very well.  So the cupboard is not bare.

Yes... I have watched plenty of CC since 1977... and up to two seasons ago, as you know, was a member who hardly missed attending one day of a home cc match....

But times change and I believe the championship has to change.

To be fair... in another match... Leicestershire have enforced the follow on for the first time in atleast five years..... Against a Durham side that are in a really bad way. But these things have to be looked at over atleast a decade.... and red ball wise ... Some counties continually come up short.

Division two is generally of a poor standard... hopefully we will be virtually promoted by the summer solstice.

I was surprised (perhaps not) this match didn't start Friday to get some play on Sunday and BH Monday .... Which would have been senscible.

A great result with a bowler light although it was against one of the triumvirate, well done to the girls too who took the last 7 Somerset wickets for 30runs to force an unlikely tie thanks to some astute captaincy from Marie Kelly and inspired bowling by Liz Russell (4-23)

If Sidebottom's out, I would hope Barker and Stone will be in for him and Wright against Northants - only CW's batting is justifying his place in the team at the moment.

I see Stone took 4 for 18 in 10 overs against Derby Seconds today!

Meanwhile... on triumverate watch.... Something special from Leicestershire today.... Going for their first away win in three years after enforcing the follow on for the first time in over five years... Against a Durham side in turmoil and predicted to finish bottom, they still manage to dig out a defeat in the race for the wooden spoon.

The first time in their first class history that Durham have won a match after following on...

Durham win after following on, a fine rearguard century by Amla in a losing cause for Hants v Notts, Yorks winning yesterday after making only 50 in the first innings and decent crowds enjoying First Class cricket in good weather.

The sooner that the ECB get their act together and replace this out-dated relic with some form of early-season T20 tournament (Or possibly some kind of 73 ball a side slog fest) the better!

Typical quote from someone who is negative about proper cricket-  proves again why it is a great game, ebbing  and flowing and as with Yorkshire's win a side has snatched victory from the jaws of defeat
