    KP not being released by England for t20 finals day. Makes sense with all his injuries even if it is a shame that one of the biggest events of the English season will go off without England players. Article I read didn't mention Cook but I think that we can take it as a given that he won't be turning up for Essex.

    Jack Leaning with a cheeky 5fer tonight for Yorkshire. Not even a frontline bowler and only 3rd game.

    Selection of Players without a one day 5fer - Chris Tremlett, Boyd Rankin, Stuart Meaker, James Harris

    Michael Klinger has been a tremendous signing for Gloucestershire. Struggled last year with worcs but the top run scorer in English cricket this year over the 3 formats. Also as captain has led a much improved Gloucestershire.

    Group C of the YB40 looks a complete cluster****. 5 teams different teams all still in contention. Somerset top currently on NRR but played one or two more games than the others competing for the top spot. The other two groups Hampshire and Notts look fairly well set to top their groups.

    Talk about a tough schedule. Notts played Worcestershire today finishing at around 10pm (at home). They play Bangl A(home) tomorrow and then are down to Hove the next day to play Sussex in a day night game.

    Makes sense to bring in a batsman for the climax of the season with Root, Bairstow, and possibly Ballance away for a lot of the time and the championship up for grabs. Was ok for Gloucestershire without ever been brilliant but that experience should help him

    haha Yorkshire bring in Williamson, Surrey bring in Amla.

    SURREY SIGN HASHIM AMLA - SurreyCCC

    Sicko may just keep Surrey up. Bitter blow for Somerset as well with no Rehman and then Surrey sign Amla.

    Throwing money at the problem, what a surprise!

    Won't help Slurry bowl teams out, which is what they need to do to actually win some matches.

    Having said that I hope Durham remember how to hold a bat the right way up when the Chelsea of cricket turn up next week.

    What does this have to do with Moeen's beard? Stay on topic Scaly.
