Hooray... better late than never I guess

Level 76

Gonna need a century at least from Mr Root

Level 76

What on earth are England playing at? Just bowl Anderson and Broad, pitch it up and take the last two wickets for pete's sake!

Level 76

Needed to be patient but paying dividends now

Level 76

still holding on to that lay 🙂

Level 76

Had a small lay of SA at 1.81

Level 76

Still cloudy and humid... expect wickets all day. May well be looking to back England, as the SA batting looks pretty thin. None of their batsmen averages more than 40 in recent Test cricket. Will see how it looks once England have a few balls under their belt.

Level 76

Still no entry for me. Will see what happens but I'm going to Southampton for the Hundred tomorrow so may not trade until day 3 if i enter at all.

Bad light could be the biggest factor from now on.

only for today.
As you say, any time lost will be receovered (possibly), therefore there will be a result you would expect.
just a matter of having a bank to cover the liability to get LTD at high odds.

Level 76

Could be some light rain soon I reckon, but heavy stuff likely around 4.30 onwards.

Draw price went down to 2.8, i loaded up at that and have greened up at 10, wouldn't be surprised to see if under 3 again. On an England lay now from 1.71.

Seen much worse starts from England to be fair, all part of the Bazball brand, give them a decent 1st innings lead and chase down with ease

Wont be under 3 again, not with 5 down at lunch on first day and clear weather forecast for days 2,3,4 and 5.
Hopefully get out at EOD with less damage and then try to recoup with LTD thereafter.
Ltes hope the 20 over Duke ball scenario rings true for this afternoon

Recovery exercise for me

Ok, its Bazball, but ffs all you need to do is play straight with 1 ball left before lunch !

Where's this effing rain ????!!!!!!

Yeah my thoughts exactly!! My trading plan for this match was let the draw price crash and enter overnight... now I'm thinking I've missed the low odds.

yep, me too.
If i come out of this game with a green i will be surprised.

@matt-ayles When it comes to thunderstorms you really cannot count on forecasts because exactly where they fall is extremely unpredictable. Radar is the only way, and it was clear from the outset that any rain was several hours away.

Never rely on forecasts; I'm definitely a radar man, and it looks to me there's a good chance Lord's will escape the worst of the storms during the early part of the afternoon. The main rain has given Brighton a good soaking but seems to be slipping to the west of north London. Trouble is there is some really torrential, localised rain to the south east which might strike between 3-4 and if that happens that will probably be it for the day, when the draw price will shorten quickly. In the long run, though, I still think the draw will trade very high later in the match - and very probably at 1000 on the final day.

Level 76

SA win toss and bowl.
