    Essex sign Gautam Gambhir for remainder of the season

    England u19s on the tv tomorrow playing pakistan u19s. Last qualification game but it won't matter with regards to the final- whoever wins today between england and bangladesh play pakistan in the final. Matt Fisher the 15 year old from Yorkshire has been doing well but will probably be rested for tomorrows game which is a shame. Bound to be a few big talents on the pakistan side.

    Lees making runs today, 62 off 66 at Somerset and Learning 33 off 26 not out so far. Few more prospects coming out of Yorkshire. Irritating or what

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    It's disgusting how accurate that may just be!

    That's a pathetic over of batting from Hughes. Such a stupid shot to get himself out.

    Peter Trego is having some season isn't he. I wouldn't mind him in an England ODI squad for down under. Like for like cover for Ravi in many ways.

    Had about 5 decent seasons running in various forms to be fair to him. If he played for a more fashionable county I bet he'd have played for England.

    Been terrible in the Championship in comparison though, and his bowling seems to have regressed pretty badly this year.

    Jos kept today apparently, that situation gets curiouser & curiouser.

    They have been rotating the gloves all season to be fair.

    I think his bowling is still good enough to be comparable to Ravi to be honest, and his consistency this year has been amazing with the bat. 36 with the bat in T20 and 633* runs at 79* in YB40. As I said purely as an ODI player, he should really be in the squad.

    I just think it's a shame is bowling has gone off the boil at the same time as his batting seems to have hit another level. The Championship form has been a real downer for Somerset this year too, was the MVP last year.

    The selectors won't pick him, so it's slightly irrelevant either way, particularly with the WC a while off. Whether they Should is another matter I suppose.

    I'd rather we play guys like him in the upcoming one day series than the test players. Been a hard summer and a huge winter to come. Let them put their feet up and try out a few deserving guys like Trego.

    Relegations battles are more important, IMHO.
