    Unbeaten 231 for Alex Hughes playing for the seconds, staking a claim to play next week.

    Well I've accelerated my pre match Saturday ritual... 
    - fallen out with the family so they've cleared off out
    - lined up a beer for the game 
    - pressure washed another section of patio to justify the beer to Mrs VdM, even though she's cleared off out with her mates. 
    - looked on here a few times  to get the latest on team/erik/efl appeal
    All done, ready for the next chapter to unfold....😜

    Yeah, feel they are shoehorning him into the team because he’s such a good fielder. I like him as a one day player, but he doesn’t do enough with bat or ball in the 4 day game. We have enough all rounders in the team, Dal is one too many for me. He’s not a better player than Alex Hughes, so not sure why Hughes is nowhere to be seen this season. He’s scored some runs for the 2nds today, Tom Wood also scored a century. Perhaps pressing a claim for next week, if Dal fails again in the 2nd innings.

    I nipped on the bbc website earlier. They didn't even have the big wicket display box for wicket of Mitchell, just a quick sentence squeezed in barely noticeable.

    Yeah, they are talking out of their arse. The late wickets brought them back into it a bit, but at that point they were well behind.

    Absolutely, if we can squeeze out another 40 runs in the morning, you couldn’t ask for much more from a Derbyshire perspective.

    Agreed.
    If you win the toss, put the opposition in and they are still batting at the end of day 1, you have probably not made the right decision.

    Bat first, score 350+ - you are definitely not behind the 8-ball.
    Close of play, 360-8 - I would snatch your hand off for that any day of the week.

    50 for Hosein, century partnership with Critchley who's only 4 away from his century.
    What a start to the season these 2 have had.
    Edit - critchley has his ton 😁

    Its so frustrating that we are an opener short. We could really challenge if we had one that averaged 40+

    Excellent mornings cricket. Had that....here we go again feeling when Reece went in the first over. 
     
    Du Plooy shaky to start, but looking comfortable and the classy batsman he is now, supported by Godleman, playing a typical Godleman innings, agricultural but effective. 
     
    I had better do something useful for the next 40 minutes

    Billy Godleman batting outside off stump and completely hiding the stumps to the bowler is currently a fascinating watch, and is visibly frustrating the Worcestershire bowlers.

    I was in danger of being a productive home worker for a while today, but, this promising start has safely put that danger away.

    Yeah I thought that, would have liked to see a replay. 
     
    Du Plooy had a bit of luck, but raced to 18 runs. After a injury hampered pre season, and a pair in the 1st game, hopefully just what he needs to get going.
    I forgot to mention the wicket is so green, it reminds me of when I played on the grass at the park at Mickleover as a kid 😂 I’m not expecting a big scoring affair.

    Reece out in the first over, lbw, he didn’t look happy with the decision. Du Plooy has come out at 3, which I’d guess will push Critchley up to 5...I like him at 6, just shows we are that 1 batsman short.
