    I've always thought Kieswetter was unfairly appreciated in FC cricket because of his international limited overs exploits, where he often didn't look good enough and seemed to only have a few release shots.

    Even in this season, which has been one of his poorer ones in the Championship, he played a really good hand at three against Durham, in tough conditions, and nearly won Somerset the game in the fourth innings. Was a pretty unheralded effort IMO.

    This Essex attack seems to have done a remarkable job being less than the sum of its parts today.

    I miss the old days when Crook and Copeland would bat 10 and 11 for Northants.

    And on Wright, yes, keeping it in perspective this is an atrocious attack. But 143 off 68 is the kind of knock that rather forces you out of perspective. I haven't seen numbers like that since I was last on Little Master Cricket.

    Close to being a limited overs specialist, considering his bowling is now useless in CC.

    Absolutely abysmal bowling and fielding performance from us since I've got home from football. Growing up I remember us being awesome in close one day games, these days we never win any of them

    Well not a bad effort with a weakened side. Kabir got away with some awful balls there.

    Well we squeaked it in the end, need to find better death bowlers than Hogg and Smith though. Can't really afford to have Hogg if Chapple is there and bowling his spell straight through

    Well, Dockerell has had a fairly horrid season this year, good time to put it all right today.

    BBC Sport - Warwickshire: Bears move for Somerset pair Buttler & Compton

    Warwickshire in for Compton/Buttler double. Be interesting to see if any other counties come in for them. Surely there are others.

    I would absolutely love that. We need bats desperately and having McKay at 8 or 9 in List A's really hurts us because we end up playing 5 all rounders.
