    Prior fails again, and still some idjits in the press want him playing ODIs. It's really odd why he's rubbish at list A, yet he is incredibly so.

    Essex do seem to be doing their best to mess this up though. Two new batsmen needing a run a ball, a lot can go wrong there.

    That's quite a demolition job at Taunton, even if it is against the semi pro's.

    Also, I see Samit got runs today, at a great ticker too. Think he was really unlucky to be left out for Bopara in the Champions Trophy squad. Although, after the latter's 10 today, I think many could say they were unlucky not to get a gig ahead of him.

    I don't really think it's that odd. He's quite limited with his attack strokeplay IMO. He feeds on attacking bowling and attacking fields, so in tests of course he's going to score quickly because people are bowling outside off stump with three slips and a guly. When the bowlers tighten up their line and plant a couple more people in the ring I'm not surprised he struggles to score.

    T20 is different because he can literally try and smash everything out of the park.

    A lot of people with big reps, and ones who have taken a lot of wickets, have been decidedly average. Rushworth the latest disappointment.
    Mark Wood looked quite good. At least he got rid of that useless Bopara.

    Yeah wasn't awful, out-shone Stokes and Rushworth with the ball anyway.

    We have been woeful in the CC so far and i think we have no chance of getting promotion back to Division 1, Still an excellent win over Sussex in the one day stuff

    Ansari running through Hampshire. My outside bet to be playing for England ODI team in a few years. Could be the vital cog at 5, 6 or 7 as a spin bowling allrounder. In his final year at Cambridge so once that is over he can concentrate on the cricket full time.

    Hint of Hoggard in his gather, IMHO. Sadly doesn't seem to have Hoggy's swing tho.

    What pace was he and Wood averaging? He definitely couldn't be the fifth bowler in an england odi or t20 attack at the moment. Too erratic but he is a wickettaker and has good skills (but not accuracy or consistency which are obviously extremely important). Could be the fourth seamer in a test team but his batting isn't there at the moment to warrant batting at 6 or 7 at the moment either. I get the impression at the moment there is loads of talent but that it is all a bit untidy and occasionally ugly.

    Not seen him, but he's not at a great county for getting games, Keedy, Batty, and won't Kartik br back after the hit-and-giggle stuff.

    I think Ansari will be ok. He was getting into the team last year in the championship for his batting alone. It's a slight worry that he might not be getting the bowling he needs in the first class game with batty and keedy but chances are keedy will only be there for a couple of years and Ansari is probably likely to gain quite a lot from watching and learning from keedy.

    Chances are once mid summer comes and he's finished uni he'll probably be a regular in all three formats although will probably bowl more in the cb40/t20. I don't think Kartik is back this year.

    Didn't see Wood bowl, but Stokes was up around the 83-85mph mark.

    Allenby & North carving a frankly mediocre looking Middlesex attack to all corners in today's televised game.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Hideously flat pitch though, can see Middlesex chasing this down.

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