    but honestly when did Shiv last take a first-class wicket, I thought he'd jacked in bowling altogether?
    I remember him taking a Test wicket in the last couple of years; a ridiculous piece of wicket keeping from Carlton Baugh to stump a batsman in the millisecond he raised his heal. I think he'd actually left the ball.

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

    Yeah was here:
    3rd Test: West Indies v India at Roseau, Jul 6-10, 2011 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    59.3 83.5 kph, VVS has managed to get stumped after leaving a wide delivery, fancy that for a freakish dismissal, he had just ambled back after leaving the ball and the back foot was in the air for just an instant, just an instant, and that was enough for an alert Baugh to whip off the bails, Laxman looked surprised when West Indies appealed and even more so when the third umpire ruled him out, Chanders is mobbed by his team-mates, he is grinning broadly, 9th wicket in 133 Tests, he'll take it172/5
    Don't think he's taken one since.

    CK is a better championship batsman, better gloveman and less likely to be missing games through international commitment in the forceable future. There's a reason Somerset aren't telling him to piss off and giving Buttler a big expansive fancy new contract. Well, they might be doing the latter, but they're not doing the former.

    Look, I love Jos to bits, and both think, and hope, he'll be England wicketkeeper for years to come, at least in the short forms. But at the moment, he just doesn't bring more to a county than Craig.

    He did say long-term though. He's not saying Buttler has been better so far; just that he thinks he's likely to be/perform better in the near future. Honestly don't think it's an unreasonable call.

    Buttler has shown the ability to knuckle down and play an innings for us this season. He averages 38 in Championship cricket this season compared to Kieswetter's 30, and has just 30 fewer runs in two fewer games. At the beginning of the season Buttler was often the batsman to bat us out of a tough situation.

    He had two big partnerships with Alviro Petersen in tough situations early in the season and top scored in most of Somerset's terrible low scores. He put on 120 with Trego and scored 80 when staring down an innings defeat against Middlesex. Oddly he was better in Championship cricket this season than he was in one-day cricket.

    His wicket keeping has also improved massively, while Kieswetter has been very inconsistent, letting through 18 byes from Leech and Chawla yesterday when we were defending just 106.

    God what the **** takes Cricinfo so long to write a report. Almost every time without fail Durham's game is the last to get a report for it despite often being involved in the most important match. It finished nearly 3 hours ago. BBC have reports up within an hour.

    They prioritised Hildrith's return to form. And rightly so.

    So safe to say The Oval is turning a bit?

    Absolute steal in the last round of the County Cricket draft. Such a gun player.

    As I kind of alluded to before, the C(/W)PL Cricket ratings thing has regularly suggested he's in England's best lineup. Hasn't been the case really this season but that game will put him back in contention.

    Yea surprised to come back online after they were 30odd-1 and see Sussex splattered again like that, doesn't usually happen twice in a match. Arshad now has 10 wickets at 6.80. Useful.

    Honestly, what is going on, byes all over the place. 23 runs off 6 balls, turning all the momentum, sloppy as anything.

    Scaly, what's happened to Steve Harmison?
