    Called off for the day. Stupid wet outfield. (It's not been raining for at least four hours - and there's blue sky)

    Inauspicious start for the new thread. Hope for better. That big yellow thing will be a lot of help.

    James Taylor (England and Notts) has had to retire due to a serious heart condition requiring surgery (same as Fabrice Muamba). So sad to retire at your peak (aged 26)....hope all goes well for him. :(

    2nd lbw for Fidel. Neither looked out to me, especially the second. But I'm not complaining!

    Really sad news about Taylor. A huge talent gone to waste.

    Tommo and McLaren both need to bowl better this session. That said it is a glorious day and Ian Bell is, well, Ian Bell.

    Sad, but at least they've found the problem before he collapsed.

    Could have been better though, if Fidel had held onto Lyth on 14.

    Being made to pay for a poor first session. Other way round, and we'd have been going into lunch 60-5. You can't afford to elect to bowl and only take three wickets before lunch, and you certainly can't afford to not take advantage of good bowling conditions.

    The cynic in me thinks that the good thing to come from us bowling first, is that we've avoided being that 60-5. For a day at least.

    Although as I type, Slug makes the break through. 200 partnership.
