Great start to the County Championship


Fantastic to see some highly competitive and exciting County Championship cricket last week, with Yorkshire overcoming Durham in a thrilling chase, and Warwickshire managing to hold for a draw 9 wickets down against Somerset.   Warwickshire were very lucky though - TV was covering it and it was clear there was an edge behind that wasn't given that would have given Somerset the match.   Incredibly lucky - I hope that decision doesn't prove crucial come the end of the season.

The televised game at Taunton also included two dreadful lbw decisions where there were inside edges obvious even at normal speed on first viewing (one for each side so I suppose they balance out), several Somerset dropped chances and, worst of all, Somerset's inexplicable failure to enforce the follow-on. They have only themselves to blame for not winning the game, not the final umpiring error.
