I'm not sure he has been!
Speaking to a member on Monday who was at Canterbury, I gather he got a knock on the wrist (rather than a slap!) when batting, which necessitated a delay in proceedings, although he subsequently continued his innings. Possibly, his absence is related to that incident.
I hope we are not in the process of squandering yet another great match winning opportunity, with the almost obligatory middle order collapse from yesterday's 154-2 to the late struggle to keep the innings afloat. Encouragingly, I thought Charlie Thurston batted well for his 25, initially helping to steady the boat, before losing concentration and driving straight to cover.
The end of the innings has come quickly this morning, as expected, but we should still have a good chance on a pitch still offering something to the bowlers.
