    Should definetly have done enough to get himself a decent run in the England twenty20 side.

    Not been a great day for Somerset: County news : Somerset dealt blow with loss of Abdur Rehman | Cricket News | County Cricket 2013 | ESPN Cricinfo

    Reckon he would've caused a lot of issues in the late summer, like he did last season, given the weather in the last month. Survival will be that much harder now.

    Stokes is a strange one. Could have sworn a few years ago he was seen as a long-form batsman who bowled a bit as well, whilst struggling in the limited overs stuff. Now he's blazing it in the shorter forms but really struggling for runs in the CC, but is a frontline bowler. **** knows what he'll end up as.

    Yeah, young all-rounders always do that.

    He must've declined quite a bit with the bat in the CC. I remember on ICC 2011 he'd go through a FC career averaging close to 60, but is only averaging 35 now. I wouldn't be thinking of him for tests for a while, would much rather have Woakes if we're desperate for a third seamer and lower middle order batter. But he probably deserves a go in the ODI 15 for the Aus games, instead of Woakes ironically, and an extended run in the T20I XI.

    I have a very simple explanation for that. He's a Kiwi. Its how all our 'all rounders' roll.

    Has there been any indication as to whether England players will be available for their counties on Finals day? Falls in the middle of an eight day gap between the fourth and fifth Tests, and, depending on the results of today's and tomorrow's game, could affect Pietersen, Broad, Swann, Cook and Anderson, for starters. Whether they should play is another matter, of course.

    I know anything goes n Brighton these days but that's really taking the, er, mickey.

    Seriously I suspect it's not the end of the matter as far as Sussex are concerned. Expect him to cop a ban for that. Out of character tbf, but very disappointing all the same.

    James Vince taking a real liking to McClenaghan. Gone for 34 off his first two.

    The big Kiwi's action for his effort ball gets a tad elbowy too. Never clocked that before.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
