Headingly drainage has been a problem in the past. I assume they have fixed it. Does anyone know? Google was no help.Current forecasts have the first session a likely washout. With a few showers later. So drainage definitely an issue.I agree that on and off with showers that may spice up the pitch and could well bring wickets.
Don't think they have spent anymore on it since 2009, when they spent 600k. Nothing in their future plans either

If we don't see a few wickets when play does happen today, draw will go awfully short Saturday as it looks to be the best batting day. Can see the draw going under 1.3.
Headingley's wicket is notoriously jekyll and hyde depending on overhead conditions.

Meteo rain radar forecast, generally pretty reliable, shows rain well past 9:30.
You might be right, the projections are starting to fill in now over the north of england! Looked like it was moving across but now the 9am projections show the rain sitting over the middle of the country

Just a matter of waiting now for the TV to show pics of rain with the covers on.

If you look back through this thread jucel69 you will see this was flagged as a risk, despite what some had to say about it at the time.
I backed the draw at 3s so I'm pretty happy. Cashed out when I thought it was going to clear around 9/10am, but then when the projections changed again I jumped back on the draw!

jucel69 29 May 15 11:48 still plenty of showers on the radar once this big band disappears. Not touching my draw position at the moment as it will take 1hr 30mins once it stops raining to get the ground ready!they could always ask Flower to drive up from Loughborough and shout at the groundsmen.
All those showers could miss the ground. Cashed out my position now as the odds could move pretty quickly in the next few hours. Going to sit back and look for another opportunity.

I always try to be objective, I comment about things as I see them, whether I'm up or down.
