Crap Match Report

Close of play, final day: Surrey 376 and 282-9dec, Northants 492 (Northants 12pts, Surrey 10pts)

Aye aye

Top tier of The Oval, surveying my patch. @surreycricket
doing a fine job of hanging on. 227-5, lead of 100ish after following on. Booze… #


Note to self: Don’t publish a podcast talking up @surreycricket’s chances. They’ll only lose another wicket. Spriegel lbw 56. 235-6 the ‘rrey #

OCS ball tampering? Bloke behind boundary rope caught the ball, and roughed up the cherry before tossing it back. 239-6 the ‘rrey #

Once again the bar manager at the Ramps’ 100 Bar has taken up his favourite position. Um, just behind mid wicket. Nice work, fella. 243-6 #

250 up for the ‘rrey for the fall of 7 wickets. Game changed. Northants optimtic of run chase & result. Dr A working away. Why? Strange girl #

V excited. Chap wearing Forest top & Surrey cap, carrying pint, just sat in front of us. Planning a D***y song. Dr A not happy #

Why are *all* the players out, asked Dr A. Um, that will be tea, darling. 265-8 @surreycricket. Could get lively if wickets fall after tea #

Lurking in the 100 Hundred’s Bar at The Oval, smuggling in home brew. Bar Manager clocked us. Surprised he’s actually here #

Legendary @surreycricket oik, Lobby, is alive and well in the Peter May stand. No one can deliver a C’mon the ‘rrey better than Mr L. 278-9 #

Blimey. Match drawn. Northants ran out of ideas and two captains shook hands. Shame, as I was all bound for more booze action #
