Born out of a lack batting options. According to Dave Fletcher the other option to bat at 3 is Brooke Guest....which isn’t any more appealing to be honest.

Madsen wants to bat at 5.

Why does Madsen want to bat at 5? Why are we so short of batsmen? 

I’m not blaming Dal, it’s just that he isn’t very good! Godleman will have good innings as will the others but Dal just seems well short of county cricket standard from the, admittedly, little that I have seen. As a friend says though, don’t know what the pitch is like until both sides have batted on it.

Perhaps at 37 he doesn’t feel he can bat that high up, and 5 is better for him now. I don’t know to be honest.

We are stacked with bowlers and all rounders, but only have 3 specialist batsmen. It’s crazy, but been that way for a while. We rely far too heavily on Madsen & Du Plooy and hope the all rounders can do enough in support. If we fail at the top of the order it’s usually a disaster.

169-5 and the rain is back. Been a good effort with the ball, a 50 plus stand has put Warwickshire in the driving seat now. The pitch is starting to misbehave quite a bit, if we can still bowl them out without them getting too far ahead, it will be an interesting last 2 days.

Excellent morning with the ball, bowled them out for 221, Critchley and Cohen with 2 a piece, Reece got the ball rolling with the wicket of Bresnan.

32 behind, the wickets been tricky from the start, and with uneven bounce. Of we could set them anything over 200 that could be tricky....have to keep an eye on the weather though.

We have been an opener/number 3 short for at least 2 seasons. Madsen and Dun Plooy are coming in too early in the innings. 

I’d like an opener, and move Reece to 3. Always thought it’s crazy he opens the batting and bowling.

When Du Plooy gets going, he's a spectacle.

When he doesn't, he's a pair of spectacles.
