Yes it was a really great day, good few runs and plenty of wickets. Although Sri Lanka are pretty poor at the moment and there fielding was abysmal. Although they are making a better fist of it this morning. Although letís face it they couldnít do much worse. Might be able to stretch it into Day 4.

All beer a bargain £4.40 per pint plus a £1 refundable deposit on return of the plastic "glass". That was the size of the queue at 10:45 AM. By mid-afternoon it was massive and a 15 minute wait was more likely to occur. Couldn’t be arsed with it myself.



We took up our seats in the morning on the lower deck of the two storey County Durham Stand to the left of the floodlight. However any limited sunlight was blocked out by the upper deck and the wall at the rear of the stand was partially open which allowed a freezing breeze through. So after freezing our bollocks off during the morning session, after lunch we moved to the North East Terrace where there were empty seats. There was little or no breeze here and when the sun came out it was quite pleasant. In fact, got a bit of sunburn.





Sliding stop by Moheen Ali who was King for the day after scoring 155 not out.



Long jet black silky hair, is that a puying? Probably not.



Quick look at the old scoreboard. Yes Sri Lanka are still being pissed on.

And he did.

Great photo Reg. They almost got a full days play in so all was not lost.

SL played well Following On showing they may put up a better show at Lords. Hopefully. I think SL have severely underperformed and have more been done over by the bowling conditions that have been brilliantly exploited by Englandís seamers, especially Anderson. As a result they lost confidence and their entire game just went to shit.

I'd almost given up on seeing much cricket but nearly got full day out of it got to meet captain cook (he will probably write on his memoirs that some northern monkey he met on the pavilion steps spurred him on to get his 10,000 test runs)
Big thanks to Jake and his mate George for putting up with me and getting me right on the steps of the pavilion

Cooky en route to 10,000 runs

I thought you might have used the Abbo Gaz approach.


"Psssstt"
