    Some really high scores so far this season. Seeing scores like 280 in 40 overs make you think 300 could be regularly crossed in the Champions Trophy.

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.
    Wood was averaging about 85/86 but can bowl at 90. He hasn't bowled enough overs yet to be even thinking of England. 139.4 overs with the red ball and 41.0 with the white ball. He needs to replace Thorp in the Durham first XI and spend a couple of seasons in county cricket.

    thanks. the stuff written there was about stokes just in case there was any confusion. Obviously as you say Wood has to play some decent cricket for a prolonged period before he is even considered for lions cricket.

    Or move to Slurry. There wickets and overs count double. Finish things off with a South African background.

    The bitterness would be funny if it weren't so sad. Or do I mean the other way round?

    Didn't someone say Cook wouldn't be playing for Essex this week? He's in the side against Lancs. Mickleburgh in as well for his first first-team game of the season. And Stephen Parry gets a rare four-day outing - only his fourth f-c match, and his first since August 2009!

    Cautious starts by both Essex and Yorkshire, who lost a wicket in their first over. At Old Trafford Kyle Hogg has just got Westley, to claim his 200th wicket. Well done to him, only taken 12 years.

    Essex batting looks light.

    Kirby in for COverton and Suppiah in for CK. Somerset have to fancy themselves for this one.

    Though without Kerrigan Lanky's bowling looks a tad threadbare as well, although Parry is well thought of, so hopefully he'll get some wickets

    How else do you explain Meaker and Turdbach?

    Meaker isn't even quick. Still played for England.

    Only a couple of times, and quicker than Plunkett I'd suggest - who's had many more chances. Dernbach, good county bowler, but T20 is probably his limit as far as England is concerned. Meanwhile, the best one-day keeper-batsman in the country can't get in the side.

    Still heavy going at Old Trafford but Cook's still there. Hopefully having played himself in he'll go on and get a decent score.

    About as quick and accurate as Plunkett, without the prodigious swing and the batting ability.

    Turdbach has no role in any format, he's just awful.
