So, first test v the Windies starts this week, in a sterile bubble at the Ageas bowl.
Listening to Solent yesterday, Hampshire are having to practice in a bubble at Arundel because of this
Rain has delayed the start of the 1st test v the Windies
There’s been a conference between the umpires, the coaches and the captains. It was a long discussion.
Lunch is going to be taken at 12:30 BST and then they will take another look at 13:10 BST.
It’s not raining at the moment, it’s actually quite hot and humid.
Matt MacDiarmid: Here in Leicester we’re in lockdown and struggling with the tough situation we’re finding ourselves in. So when I clicked onto the BBC Sport homepage only to see ‘Rain delays start of play’ it was comforting to have some normality back.
Play due to start at 2.
Eng win toss & will bat
Sibley shoulders arms to 10th ball of innings
After a close review that Burns survived on Umpires call in 1st over
And it’s mizzling who’s bright idea was it to have a test in England in the Summer months…
If Sibley hadn’t of lost so much weight, he might have got something on that.
Play to resume at 15:30…
Shot from a blimp over the Ageas bowl and I swear I’ve just seen @Lets-B-Drinking sitting in a deck chair on the grass overlooking the ground!!
Don’t think you can even get that close.
It was suggested sometime ago, that I resumed my part-time Groundsman position, but decided it was too much like hard graft.
Shannon Gabriel 90mph inswinger
Denly gone for 18
Rory Burns LBW on review for 30
Maybe I should stop watching
Crawley LBW on review for 10
Pope gone for 12, caught behind
Ball moving a fair bit off of the seam
Good toss to loose.
