    BBC radio commentator on Surrey v Sussex has just described Adam Hollioake as "one of the great Surrey legends".

    Slots in nicely at number 3 for me. Adds much-needed depth to an otherwise frail batting order, and brings a whole new dimension to the bowling.

    2. John Edrich
    3. Adam Hollioake (c)

    9. Sir Alec Bedser

    Anyon getting Smith. Can think of one person who'd hate that (and consequently a lot of people who love it)
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Not sure how serious you are there, but I don't know if he ever batted as high as three - even in OD stuff. Perhaps Tom Hayward, Andrew Sandham or Mark Ramprakash, who all made over 100 f-c 100s, might be better qualified to fill that spot?

    AH for the Surrey all-time one-day team though.

    I don't think he's being at all serious
    Do I contradict myself?

    seems to me you don't need 5 bowlers with Adam Hollioake around
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Carberry gone so pace likely to slow a bit now. Excellent start though.

    Disappointed that Barker is injured for tomorrow's game. Was looking forward to see him bowl on sky. Least there is Wright and possibly Jamie Overton to look at and asess as potential future england players.

    Just noticed that they're actually playing a University, so he could well have had a game, but not yet ... incidentally Leics are fielding eight players with three initials in their team today. Are they the new Hampshire?

    Yeah, you'd think he'd be a fair way off if he wasn't picked for this one.

    Bresnan returns with 4 so far. Wonder what his pace is like?

    Encouraging either way as he was hardly getting wickets for Yorkshire when he played last season. Be great if the operation has enabled him to bowl quicker again.

    900th wicket today for Claude Henderson. Very few get to four figures nowadays but he has an outside chance if he can stay fit for this season and play next year as well. Would be one of the lesser lights in the thousand club though.
