Otherwise, to read about match-winning bowlers and adventurous captaincy, the best advice was to consult the history books. Of eight Championship matches begun last week, six were drawn. In two of them, Somerset and Leicestershire, following on, scored more than 400 runs to avoid defeat. The start of the season awaits the wow-factor.
