    Notts doing what they do best. Win the northern group at a canter and then lose in the quarters to a team from the south.

    Fantastic, Essex. Good to see Topley must have bowled well.

    Shame though Notts went out though, Essex are pretty average and finals day is that less appealing. Notts will be regretting bowling first. Pressure always on chasing second.
    Like I said at the time, South group seemed strongest to me. With that being said, it was still surprising to see Essex trump Notts. Get the feeling something will have to happen to stop Hampshire retaining their crown, but with T20 you never know.

    Topley around the wicket with the keeper up reminded me very much of what Wood and Bates used to do at Hampshire funnily enough. Has Wheater actually been making that many runs to justify him replacing Bates?

    Pothas certainly doesn't think so. Scored 0 in his last two innings, not that he's had many chances with the bat.

    Yeah, I think it's a bit of a rough decision. I was at the ground though, and the tv coverage definitely didn't give it the full viewpoint. It was a full on confrontation between the two sides where nearly every play was involved, and I can see why they'd want to punish players triggering that sort of stuff with so many kids watching.

    Quite right, anyone being rude to the Trego must be punished severely, posters on here take note.

    Yeah he has hardly had a hit in the twenty20 but then Bates never got one either.

    I was always against the decision but I could see why they did it for the championship but never thought they would get rid of Bates in the twenty20. As it happens Wheater has been no better with the bat in four day cricket.

    Yeah I have been confounded by the South Group! Wrong on that count.

    Made Buttler's arrival to the crease less pleasant too FTR. Should be banned for the rest of the season tbh.

    Yeah I just saw that, clearly the CDC heard from the umpires - the TV camera didn't pick up everything and of course we don't know what was said. It did look at the time as if Trego walked into the middle of a bunch of Surrey players celebrating his dismissal, presumably because inappropriate language had already been used. I don't recall the commentators on Sky at the time attributing all the blame to Batty, but then they knew no more than the viewers. It did look as if Batty offered an apology to Trego at the end of the match, but it was shrugged off. All a bit silly and reminiscent of the Ilott/Croft handbags in the Nat West semi in 1997.

    Incidentally, I'm surprised the Commission has the power to delay the suspension so that Batty can play in Surrey's next fixture, a YB40 match against Derbyshire - but must miss both matches on Finals day (if Surrey win their semi-final). You can see why they've done that, I'm just wondering if they've acted beyond their powers. A two match ban should be exactly that surely - the next two matches.

    Could argue it's the next 2 matches in the competition in which the offence occurred I guess.
