    You're asking for it here, mate:

    http://caistor.play-cricket.com/scor...d.asp?id=12532

    I reckon 180 ought to win games, that 140-150's par, and we'll see a couple of 200+. Maybe one or two centuries. Remember Scott Harneiss at Augusta Street? Was it you that dropped him on 80 or Paino?

    Of course, the pitch conditions will come into it one heck of a lot.

    I just knew you were going to correct me......you're getting predictable Neily :P

    I seem to remember vaguely that I made valiant diving effort after running 40 yards to my left and getting my finger-tips to it as it crashed over the boundary 8D.....and both of us dropped him

    Important announcement......

    The following link is to a page on the ECB website.
    On it, you will find the live internet radio streams of the Twenty20 games over the next few days.

    radio links

    They probably won't work until closer to kick-off time (5.30 BST). They are all from BBC local radio stations, so no Channel 4 cut-offs of course (although I'm sure Tim Lamb could even screw this one up).

    Anyway, store the link and you should be able to get the games tomorrow.

    I dont see the point in it. It will creat unnessacary injuries and can cause bad habits. It will be good for attracting fans but that is only what it will be good for.

    However it is useful in America and along with Cricket Max in getting the game off its feet and making it more popular.

    There is going to be a lot 2020 cricket shown here in the next few days. I don't when they are played but some are live and some recorded. I was dissappointed that not a single county match was shown here this year as there are many Indian players but atleast they will start showing some

    What? No Derbyshire match? You'll miss Mohammed Kaif. Shame, that.

    I'm quite looking forward to seeing Bassano, di Venuto, Kaif and Corky in the shorter version. They can all give it some SERIOUS tap.

    Beware of imitations.

    The motorised duck who is set to escort players from the field after they score a blob is NOT Devil Ducky or even his cousin, Vasbert's Drake.

    I hear the somerset version has had its engine upgraded to cope with the strain during their innings....

    Could be.

    I did have some seriously witty vision flash through my mind when I saw the above - and I posted the details here. Those of you who were quick enough may have seen it. If so, shhhhhhh, it's gone.

    It's gone straight into DD's next column (something for the weekend, sir?).

    To be fair the above could happen, but theres two things you need to remember here

    1/ It's not a new Comp, it's replacing the B&H Cup so players would be playing anyway therfore could have got injuries.

    2/ With the need to score quickly and consistantly, therefore the English players will qain much needed pratcie in uping the scoring rate which they struggle in the ODI and it was said England had one of the worse 4/6's % in the game, so this will help. But probley the major point is that the guys will lean new shots / deliveries (in effort to score / prevent runs) which can only be a good thing if they take them onto International level.

    Hampshire : Way to not play a twenty over innings. All out 153 - amazing stuff. Great to see spinners having a real effect in this kind of a game.

    Yep it was a good start to the new comp... Hamps lost their way slightly in the middle order... But looking at the other scores, it looks about par, however a certian Mr W Akram is making that look better and better (2 overs 2 Runs 2 wickets)

    In other games though I notice Warwicks are using I Bell to open the bowling, why?

    Also alot of non-regular players are having a run out in the opening matches and a few doing rather well.

    Well just got back from the somerset match where they were predictably beaten by Warwickshire, 2 ducks lol..

    Great fun seemed to be had by everyone, the ground was almost full, and although the weather was pretty foul, it was the most intense period of cricket i have seen...

    Fielding should be taken to new heights, as well as running between the wickets.

    I somehow get the feeling a number of "traditionalists" were converted today, and there were huge numbers of young children and families watching....

    Definitly better than a B+H Zonal match in mid april watched by one man and a dog!

    Does anyone know if the times for 20/20 are ment to be different for weekends?

    I thought the whole promotion was evening cricket etc etc, yet two of tomorrows games are ment to start at 10:30 - Which would have been fantastic watch one in the morning on C4 then one on Sky at 5:30... In fact due to work iam missing both

    Also next saturday I blieve Sky just said that the live match was 12:30, so going from what was said as 5:30 - 8:15 matches, suddendly theres already 3 different start times.

    However iam on holiday for a week (starting Sunday) and theres a live match on every day
