    James Middlebrook having a pretty good day against Kent at Northampton, following career-best figures - in his 16th season - with an unbeaten 74 as stand-in opener.

    Almost no play at Leicester though, not that far away.

    Surrey are now officially relegated. Looks like Solanki will visit his former counties ground next year, hopefully to grab a king pair Shows money can't buy success I guess.

    So we finished champions then, Shame that Luis Reece got out for 97 today but great debut season from him, 8 fifties in 14 innings opening and averaging 60.

    Might have all been very different if Smith hadn't got injured in his second match, we'll never know I guess. At least the average age of the squad looks like falling - Lewis has gone and today I hear that de Bruyn has followed. Solanki was one of the bright spots of the season tbh. What we need is a top quality spinner - Batty and Keedy are no more than good county pros.

    Where's de bruyn gone, wouldn't mind him back at Somerset?

    Surrey actually 'buy in' a lot less than some other Counties - in fact in recent years they probably haven't spent enough on the team.

    Really looking forward to todays YB40 final. Looking at the teams I can only see one winner in Notts, hoping that Michael Hogan and Jim Allenby turn up today for Glamorgan to give them half a chance. A few players on show that I'm looking forward to seeing in such a big occasion.

    Decent start from Glamorgan (barring the very first delivery), Hogan looking dangerous getting it to hoop back in appreciably the right-handed Hales, while Allenby's first over was typically accurate with a bit of gentle outswing. Kept Lumb and Hales quiet so far, but it is early days.

    Change bowlers done extremely well here for Glamorgan, Jones and Salter have really put the squeeze on Notts and been rewarded with three wickets between them. Notts started cautiously, understandably so against dangerman Hogan and the reliable Allenby, before Lumb began to up the ante and accelerate his innings. After the first powerplay Notts had found themselves in a very decent position of around 47-0 off the eight overs, but they soon lost both openers and since then Glamorgan's disciplines all round have been excellent. Good bowling backed up by some sharp fieding. Notts not having it all their own way at this point, but they do still have Taylor not out and he's just been joined by the classy and experienced David Hussey.

    Just about to suggest maybe one over too many for Jones and he produces a beauty to remove Taylor, a big wicket for Glamorgan. Notts may have gone into the game with one less specialist batsman due to the selection of Swann in place of Riki Wessels, but they do still have decent enough depth you would think for a 40-over game. Read now in at six to be followed by Mullaney, Broad and Swann. Just need a partnership though Notts now to consolidate things, this could be the one with Read and Hussey at the crease.

    I notice Broad is playing in his first match of the tournament in the final, who is the player he replaced and was he available for the game? I never like it when an International player comes back just for the Final. That last Salter oval was exactly whats Notts needed as they looked off the pace before then.

    Well Notts have been playing with the youngster Jake Ball in the 40-over side and he took a 4-for and I think got man of the match in the semi-final but missed this game with a back injury so I guess that made it easier to get one of Broad and Swann back in the side. Think Ball was joint leading wicket-taker for Notts in the competition with 17 wickets aswell. The unlucky man I guess is Wessels who has played the majority of the games in the competition without really making too strong a case for him to remain in the side but did give them another batting option in the mid-lower order.

    I know what you mean about internationals just coming straight into a side for the final but I think everyone wants to see the best possible players available featuring in such a showcase event. But there is something that doesn't quite sit comfortably in certain situations.

    Yes they did need that big over and they really needed this partnership, with a par score at Lords around 230 ish, Notts now look on course to get around that target and perhaps beyond should these two remain through the powerplay.

    Cheers mate. Big run out there, Huss is one of the best players to have at the crease in that sort of situation.
