I hope, that when we look back at the season in September, that this game can be seen as a watershed.
Because with the exception of a couple of players, this was fairly horrible.
Alex Hughes is worthy of mention in despatches, for a gutsy and battling personal best that was worthy of a century. He did blot his copy book by running out Wayne Madsen, which is akin to doing a sliding tackle on Lionel Messi in the warm ups to put him out of the game.
We can ill afford such extravagances and despite cameos down the order, the final tally on what was a rather blameless track by all accounts never looked enough.
Of the bowlers, Madsen bowled a tidy early spell and Ben Cotton a very good one, but the least said about the rest, the better.
I am a little short of time tonight, so that will need to do for now. Tuesday's game on Sky against Worcestershire, at the time it was announced a biggie, now carries all the importance, for us at least, of a beer match.
Yet we need more. We need to combine the hitherto excellent batting with bowling of far greater discipline.
To lose is one thing, to do it so heavily against an ordinary side is disappointing.
With that I say goodnight for now.
