No indication yet but I presume Yorkshire will have stayed in the area and have an unchanged squad.

Kent were washed out last Wednesday at Derby but have announced the same 13 man squad.

Interesting to get a look at Joey Evison and of course James Logan, if they play of course. Unfortunately I'm out all day but I hope to catch up later and of course that we come out on top.

I expect Yorkshire to go with:

Fraine, Duke, Luxton, Hill, Tattersall, Revis, Waite, Bess, Loten, Shutt, Coad.

In the match preview JT does mention Finn Bean perhaps getting a chance in one of the remaining games. I think I'd stick with Luxton in this one, hopefully he realises he owes the team some runs after Wednesday.

High scoring ground usually which I think will suit us, but they do have a far more experienced team and a strong batting line-up.

On another front Azhar Ali, who almost single handedly guided Worcestershire to their first win last week is injured and won't play against Essex.

Yorks 82 for 0 after 15.3 overs

Most noticeable , Luxton dropped for Bean, No Logan in Kent team ( but 6 foreign born players )and poor Livestream in that only one fixed camera at each end

Correction there are wide angle but still fixed cameras used between some overs

Good start by the royal princes, Will and Harry. Fraine 50, with most of the strike, but Duke similar scoring rate.

I love watching them both. Fraine is such a good player, wide range of graceful strokes, and very straight in defence. You think perhaps his runs don't quite match the talent? In any case, having a regular place will do him good. He would be one who doesn't think there's too much cricket.

Same with Duke. Compact, stylish opener. He can certainly bat. I loved his hook for 6 off the Indian. They make a nice contrast.

One reason for caution. We moan about decisions against us. Today we've got two umpires who just say 'not out'. I've given both of them lbw, and apparently there was a caught behind while I was out of the room, also not given. 93 for no wicket (18th).

Mr Bean looked to the manner born. Another top product of the Yorkshire Batting Factory. The rain came just at the wrong time, and those two wickets (Bean and Duke) also. I don't know whether they will have made a significant difference to the D/L calculation.

As I understand the process, the tables will be used to estimate how many Yorkshire would have scored in 50 overs, given that - had they known it was only 45 - they would have started the slog earlier, and with 7 wickets in hand.

Then it will calculate Kent's 45-over target from there. The crucial difference being that Kent know it's only 45 overs, while Yorkshire didn't.

So we got 282 for six, and Kent's target will be....er. more than that. But how many more? Brilliant system, D/L.

Over at Lord's meanwhile, a Bazballs up.

Ah, the answer. 297 to win off 45. Might have been 305, 310 but for those two wickets?

And Waite gets a wicket first ball.

Joey Evison , isn't he the guy some people were saying Yorkshire should sign?

Bowled 2 overs only for 18 runs , Golden duck to Waite .I'm not gloating and one swallow doesn't make a Summer. Still makes you think

I managed to listen to the last 20 overs or so on my way back from Manchester. They seemed to be cruising it but then it became an absolute sickener to get so close and have it snatched away on the final ball. Must have been a cracking game to watch.

Sounded like we ended up a few runs short after the start we got, or perhaps we shouldn't have got Compton out. I'll have a look at some highlights later.

Essex lost so it's still in our hands, we just have to win at Chesterfield and Scarborough.

It was a cracking game, despite the result. Compton did his Rudolph act again and, in the end, was one of their heroes - as Jacques often was for us. Had that last ball not gone for six, he would have been the villain! As Rudolph sometimes was, too.

No wish to moan at all, but I'm a bit disappointed that the rookie was asked to bowl the final over, when the two capped players didn't bowl their full quota. If it was Tattersall going with his instincts, fair enough. If it was Coad being reluctant, that's sad.

I have to admit I was hoping he would go for Revis rather than Coad for the final over. Revis has had more recent death bowling experience in the T20 blast. He dropped the last ball short unfortunately and Grant Stewart was equal to it, fair play to him.

Finally made it to a Yorkshire game - it has been an awfully long time with pandemics and work commitments and all. Enjoyable enough day, i just think that a lack of nous cost us.

Firstly, with apologies because he had batted pretty well to that point, Duke's dismissal. I can allow for Bean getting out, but to play that shot two balls later when it had already started to rain was unforgivable. I thought we were stitched by the DLS as it was, but by my reckoning Duke's wicket took seven off the adjusted total.

Second, the decision making in the field was weak. Bess could have bowled earlier, some of the fields were split and Revis should never have been asked to come back for the last over.

And Revis. He looks knackered, and that last over was poor. He is a big hearted cricketer, almost pulled it back, but that final ball was bilge. He could have bowled literally anything but a length ball on off.

Grrrr.

Positives. Fraine looked great, Bean made a superb debut (though i missed Luxton. I have a thing for batsmen who think noone is fit to bowl at them) and Worcestershire have a good one in Waite, a real all court player. I also thought Shutt bowled well.

I saw the last half hour. Bitter sweet with Waite. The irony is that we are choosing all our own players in this comp. to see what they can offer and who we should presumably offer deals to, and the best all rounder seems to be Waite, and, or promote to the first team in the CC.....Well I wonder if Gale and Moxon were still there, would Waite have stayed????

Their Aussie was always likely to hit a boundary in the last over, but a last ball six is a bit much.

Good to hear Shutt bowled well and the top 3 batted well though the timing of some of the dismissals seems daft. Coad had an off day.

Yes, new lease of life for Waite, perhaps he's fully fit for the first time in a long while.

It seems like it was all on the last ball but of course what went before all played a part in the final result.

Duke perhaps scoring a bit slowly, neither Hill, Tattersall or Revis managing to get going and push the score on to a really competitive total.

Unused overs by the relatively miserly spinners perhaps! Somebody mentioned nous, we certainly could do with a bit more of that.

It's sheer madness that Waite has been 'allowed' to go. You can't stop him, but a fit Waite should have a Cap and a good contract as incentive to stay. He was ahead of Thompson in the pecking order, pre-injury. They're very different players, different skill sets, but very close in ability. If each is a 50% Bresnan, that's still a very good cricketer.

And now Waite is going, and we'll see Thompson as much as Lord Lucan. (Or Jonny Bairstow.)

The other departure, TKC, we will scarcely notice. I am told he batted beautifully at Taunton, but I think Luxton and Bean (now I've seen him at this level) are different class entirely. Without the maturity and experience, of course, but in his absence they will get more experience more quickly. I think Fraine is a better player, too. None of which is knocking Kohler-Cadmore; merely praising the others.

I have said before - and others as well - that they will knacker Revis if they carry on like this. I suspect Coad may have had a bit of a sulk when he got tapped in his last over. It seems he didn't like being hit around in the last match ......

The quicker bowlers are slipping into a shorter length it seems and getting smacked over the leg side far too often and they don't seem to have a yorker between them. Do we have a bowling coach? I do wonder.

I don't understand how the 'management' can allow things to slide in such a way that Waite is leaving.

Joey Evison was in my Team of the Season last year, as Ben Allison will be this time, for the same reason. I trust my instincts, even if they are sometimes wrong.
