We were freezing in the last one day game and this time the temperature soared above the 100deg F mark as Lancashire were appalling against Surrey losing easily by 8 wickets. It didn't help to have stand D closed for some reason ( excuses given included the weather and Sky TV!) As it is one of the best places to watch the cricket this was very disappointing and the first time I have not been able to sit there for many years. Also Stand J continues to be closed - a good viewpoint later in the day for some shade - so there are less reasons for visiting the ground.
