Unfortunately, this proved something of a wasted opportunity to really capitalise on bowling first on such a responsive pitch. The absence of the requisite control and accuracy to consistently make the batsmen play, particularly during the Friday post lunch session - brief as it proved (another issue altogether!), merely allowed the home team to establish a firm grip on the game which, with their quality of attack, they were always unlikely to relinquish easily.
With only 4 of our bats making double figures in two completed innings, David Sales seems destined to have a demanding job on his hands this season.
