Chris Nash was the only wicket to fall when he flashed at a wide ball from Steven Patterson and was caught behind for 28.

Luke Wells, who passed a late fitness test on a side injury to be included in the side, has looked solid and reached lunch unbeaten on 32 from 92 balls.

Rory Hamilton-Brown has been more aggressive and hit Azeem Rafiq for a six on his way to 41 from 63 balls. Together the pair have added 56 for the second wicket.

James Tredwell is also making his debut in the game after joining on loan from Kent while Lewis Hatchett was is included for the first time in the Championship this season.

The argus spoke too soon,now 167-6 and Machan and Brown failed again,there is something seriously wrong with the team at the moment and why hasn,t. Robinson been interviewed for a while now,abysmal performance again and we will be lucky to scrape 200 and as usual we are failing to secure any batting points. Nash said in his column we need to be hard to beat,this lot would struggle amongst pub teams.Just awful.
