Timely to have some positive sport news…
Good stuff. Ellis was particularly good last year, i thought. Saints could do with the mindset Hampshire had for the last 8 games of the T20 last year!
Ellis was superb in the Big Bash in Dec - Jan too
But McDermott was decent too, so good to find another opening bat

Obv cricket season. Been snowing here today
Abbas taking his time to warm up.

106 -5 Abbas has 4
Good toss to lose 134-6
Dawson drops a catchable one straight after too
185 All out
Tough going this morning.
Dawson lbw to one that kept low. Missed Middleton’s dismissal.
Trail by 49.
Brown (20) & Holland (24) batting us to parity.
Trail by 8.
Certainly no ‘Bazball’ here. Brown given out LBW just before lunch and it looked a bit high.
All out for 231.
No batting bonus point ().
Lead by 46.
I should go and fanny around on the balcony more often.
Went out to do everything other than what mrs. db asked me to do as we didn’t look like getting a wicket and returned to see they are 89/4.
Closed on 146-6 effectively 100-6
Abbas bamboozles Moores.
