    I forgot about this - personally I'd like to see how he goes - IF he's a success, then maybe we could see Kenya at Test level real soon?

    Giles will be away on England duty quite a lot I reckon.

    Maybe they'll play him with Spires (?) in a twin spin attack

    The University game is May 14, I think.

    And a promising debut for the county culminating in a maiden half century!

    Yeah will be intresting to see how his bowling goes, after his less than impressive 3/136 (match stats) against the Kent 2nd X1 a week or so back. However I do recall he batted quite well in that match as well, a handy lower order batsman there.

    Did the 'Moles' connection have anything to do with this?

    Not sure, possibly (although I think he was signed before AM took over there)

    I think it's a fabulous move for him. Great to see him make such a good start too - now a quick five-for later on to wrap up the game.

    Good balance now to the Warwickshire side - exciting times.

    I dont agree- Exciting timnes my arse, i know the local cricket circult and Warwickshire is Rotten to the core the next 5 years will see Warwickshire in the lower half of the second Division

    Obyna is a bad signing when choose him he overseas and they stick him in the seconds until this match, that is harmful to a young english cricketer

    Well, to be fair, although it has nothing to do with this, Warwickshire are getting pummelled while Worcestershire are doing rather well...

    Granted they are in a bad position in this match, but the England disease seems to have hit us!

    Betts started well, but after 4 overs 1-7 goes off injured, and we end up having to rely on Ian Bell!
