The Bears duly beat Durham by 8 wickets today. Excellent win.
Yep, Durham made a better fist of it in their second innings but Warks home easy with 8 wickets and plenty of time to spare.

Just read that Keith Barker finished just one wicket short of a record that has stood since 1911. He would of been the first Warwickshire player to score a century and take 10 wickets in a match since then. Unfortunately, he finished with match figures of 9-157.

England v New Zealand first test and here we go again top 4 out for just 30 runs. At least a bit of a fight back now from Root and Stokes.

NZ finished up with a first innings lead of 134.

Our usual start, but not as bad as the first innings, sees us currently 44-2 with Cook and Bell at the wicket..... with 2 days to go. We could lose this!

Well game on in the cricket. New Zealand 21 - 3 at lunch still needing another 324 runs. And Warks v Sussex another good game on here. Sussex made just 193 with Wells scoring 92 of them, the next highest score was the extras. Bears now 30 - 1 in the second innings. A good afternoon of cricket in store.

Yeah, brilliant win, I didn't see that coming after day 2!

The Bears are hangin in on a ropey wicket. They may just post a score and have something to bowl at today.

Sussex already a man down 16 - 1. A great win for England yesterday and a great test match and well played New Zealand for their part in it.
