    Young Dolly seems just a little out of his depth in the professional game, but I've heard some very encouraging reports of young Cowdrey - I would advise him to change his name to Colin though - can't see the selectors picking a bloke called Fabian even if he was as good as Bradman, and quite rightly too - its a ****ing silly name

    Poor bloke Cowdrey looked absolutely terrible the one game he was on sky this season. Scored plenty of runs otherwise. Still should get on tv plenty more times during his career.

    Bangladesh a losing again to the counties. 3 in a row to start the tour. Funny thing has been the dominance of the English spinners in these games. Dawson, Sheppard, Rafiq, Lilley, Croft all with good figures in the games against an experienced Bangladesh A team and the relative lack of success of the bangla spinners.

    Fabian Cowdrey looked like the worst player I've ever seen in the T20 mentioned earlier.

    Bears/Holland playing on the roadiest of all roads by the looks of it at Edgbaston.

    Must be flat if Porterfield is scoring runs.

    Yeah, when our batting get's going it's quite good, hideous at other times though.

    Yes Kieswetter in a fine vein of form.

    Middlesex choking it away against the unicorns potentially. Morgan still struggling. Needs some runs before the england squad names for t20 and odis.

    Hampshire just such a solid white ball team. Just solid player all the way down and everybody can make a defining contribution. Wood at 10 with 41 off 30. No star or great player. Just a real hard team to beat.

    Deary me that is woeful from the Bears. Why does Javid only bowl two overs, he only went for 6?

    Yeah, I have such confidence them winning any sort of game really.

    Makes for such a contrast with the four day game where I find it hard to see how they will win games, the batsmen are somewhat underperforming and the bowling is just not up to it.

    Linley the last-ball hero against Derby at the Oval.

    Almost made a mess of that needing 6 off the final over.

    Heartbreak for the 'Corns though.

    Has certainly done everyhing you could ask of him since being dropped. Is the same old problem though, all our good one day batsmen are top order players, is why we have to stick with Buttler in my opinion.
