Wow! I was paying no attention at all to the individuals involved in this case and care nothing about Overton.

My point is a philosophical/ethical one about living and dying by the same sword. Those fielders dancing and whooping around in a deceitful attempt to get a wrong decision from the umpire cannot possibly complain when something similar inevitably goes against them.

There are decisions in cricket where the game would be better at all levels if players - who usually know best what has happened - still helped umpires to get to the right decision (e.g. bump balls, close to ground catches, thin edges, boundary rope transgressions, etc).
Sorry. I misread it.

351/6 - proving my earlier disparaging post about Sussex's prospects in this game, wrong .

A possible win ?

There's something of the village cricketer about Joe Leach when he runs in to bowl.

I wouldn't want to face him though.

359-6 at close of play. A great recovery after the middle order collapse.

Lead of 297, will we be aggressive with a declaration?
Unlikely to get a positive result on day four, expect a bore draw unless there is a sudden clatter of wickets.

I don't think we'll want to throw it away after battling so hard. I expect we'll bat on for an hour, then Shipley and Carson can bowl them out.(y)
