    Look at this for a field that Yorkshire have set at Surrey today.

    45 year old Jimmy Adams (the proper one) is on as a sub-fielder for Kent against Lancs.

    Nice to see Sibley score some runs. Was the standout performer with Stone last winter for the England u19s. Also youngest ever centurion for Surrey.

    Now Surrey's highest third-wicket partnership against Yorkshire - and that's a rivalry for the ages. Really don't want us to declare, at least not until we're down to the bowlers. There isn't going to be a result on this track without a ridiculous amount of contrivance, so they may as well minimise the time they spend in the field tomorrow.

    Not going to get carried away about Sibley, Scott Newman made a similar score in his second or third game IIRC and it never really worked out for him.

    Sibley is the first cricketer of my age group to dominate in a professional game. This makes me sad.

    A guy younger than me has a FC 150.

    Damn that makes me feel old, and not in a good way.

    If it helps I can confirm that in about 20 years time you'll have got over that

    Ali just the 1375 runs @ 62.50 and 28 wickets @ 33.71. Not bad.

    Most runs by anyone and currently 5th most wickets by an English spinner.



    Obviously second division but still impressive.

    Most of us are older than Durham CCC of course, back in the days of Graveney, Botham, Larkin etc. Bit of a shock to see them in with a chance against Sussex, were still 44 runs behind when the 6th wicket fell. But the two new-ish batsmen have both scored hundreds, which is great to see. Partnership over 200 and counting. Don't know if it's a record but won't be far off.

    Newman had a dreadful attitude - that's what let him down. From what I hear Sibley is a pretty focused and well balanced character.

    Get used to it

    Sibley now has the 3rd highest 1st class score for a player that I have umpired.

    Yeah he's probably first in line for the position Samit Patel held in England's thoughts should the need arise - batting allrounder who bowls spin - now. Not sure it'll ever really come up though as they do like Root's bowling anyway.

    Wow, what a way to announce yourself from Sibley. Great time to do it as well, has guaranteed himself winter cricket in some team or other.
