The state of play? Essex top Division One, Notts bring up the rear; while in Division Two, Sussex sit pretty, Derbyshire scrape the barrel. Plenty of time for that to change though, plus the weather to throw a cloudburst into the mix. Also, we await news on Essexs possible points deduction for the big bat fiasco.

After two rounds of the Kookaburra, we swap the soggy pile of rags for a shiny Duke. There were some interesting numbers from those first two rounds. In 2023, 427 wickets were taken with seam bowling in the first two rounds at 29; in 2024 it was 233 at 43. By contrast, 4605 balls of spin were bowled in 2023, taking 63 wickets; in 2024 that had increased to 6214 balls and 135 wickets. And there have already been as many double hundreds as there were in the whole of 2023. Thanks to Kevein Howells county podcast for these numbers.

Key events

In Division One:

Mohammed Abbas is wicketless at The Rose Bowl, as is Kyle Abbott. Rob Yates, fresh from his bowling triumph last week, 21 not out.

There is no play yet Chelmsford or Canterbury. Notts have recovered from the early loss of HH, 26-1 v Somerset, who play Bashir. And Durham Borthwick lost in the first over, 19-1 v Worcestershire.

Part

Around the ground, not a large number of wickets. I'm almost disappointed. Division Two:

Leicestershire 30-0 against Derbyshire

Yorkshire, an intoxicating one 41-1 at Lords, where it is now raining. Lyth the man out, to TRJ.

Not yet played at Wantage Road, and Gloucestershire (49-0) racing against Sussex, the best of the table.

Part

The weather is improving in Chelmsford where the game starts at 12.15pm, with the toss coming soon.

Meanwhile, a 16-year-old in Lancashire got stuck for seconds.

These photos look very familiar to me…

My son, who is doing Geography revision, tells me There was a magnitude 2.5 earthquake in Derbyshire last night. Maybe that rattled the slip boiler, BTL reported. Leicestershire 22-0

Part

Durham have won the toss and are going to bat. Looks lively.

Durham has won the toss and will bat first.
The game starts at 11:30 am.

Yorkshire his way as the toppers (27-0 from four) against Middlesex; Notts less so after winning the toss and electing to bat against Somerset, poor old HH was third ball for 0.

Part

For anyone who missed it, and it was encouraging to hear the news being widely reported on sports broadcasts. The eight first-tier women's counties are: Durham, Lancashire, Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, Surrey, Essex, Hampshire and Somerset.

And an interesting point I picked up today from Raf on Twitter:

Yes, Sussex has a strong history in women's cricket, but that had little to do with the County Cricket Club.
The volunteer-run Sussex Women's Cricket Association did most of the work, so it's a bit unfair to say now "oh but we developed Holly Colvin & Sarah Taylor". https://t.co/259S4tWsxx

Also a delayed start at Wantage Roadand in Chelmsford and in Canterbury.

Rain at Kidderminster. Delayed start

Meanwhile, lots of cricket news this week, including the birth of Wisden number 161. It almost feels nepotistic to plug it, but Tim wrote a nice piece about the Almanack and its editor Lawrence Booth.

Part

Just returned from a lovely walk in the woods where the sun had decided to shine and everything was so perfect lime green that you should put it in a bottle for the November days.

Meanwhile, Gary Naylor is at Lords: Greetings from a cloudy Lords, first on a bowl and I hope you don't go bowling again before closing day.

Phalanxes of primary school children flooded the North Gate when I arrived and they are now shivering in the stands. If a day of Champo cricket in April doesn't put them off the game for life, nothing will. That said, well played MCC for figuring it out.

Balls, balls, balls

After two rounds of the Kookaburra, we trade the soggy pile of rags for a shiny Duke. There were some interesting numbers from those first two rounds. In 2023, 427 wickets were taken with seam bowling in the first two rounds at 29; in 2024 there were 233 against 43. In 2023, on the other hand, 4605 spin balls were bowled, good for 63 wickets; by 2024 that had increased to 6214 balls and 135 wickets. And there have already been as many double hundreds as there were in all of 2023. Thanks to Kevein Howells' county podcast for these numbers.

Unsurprisingly, Dukes isn't thrilled with the idea.
