    Yes absolutely he's be promoted when the situation dictates, but I also share the feeling that ultimately he can be much better than just a last 10/15 overs man.

    All those who had Durham down as getting relegated this season may want to review that decision...

    There looks enough runs in the side to keep them safe. Cannot imagine Captain Colly would lead the side into Division two!

    Happy that they've gone with Gregory over Barrow.

    Dernbach cleaning out Hales. Hales proving the selectors right with all these low scores in the 4 day game. Could be some wickets today given the rain we've had overnight and yesterday.

    I agree. Barrow doesn't really warrant a place on past form. Still though Buttler, Trego and Gregory at 5,6 and 7 all seem one spot too high. Will be important to make use of the toss today.

    Must be big question marks against him now

    Sitting out one game after 2 hit outs is understandable but not 2 plus one-dayers, etc

    yes he's got a problem if he wants to play for england this summer. Everything that has come out of surrey is that he is fit, just not selected. Doesn't help that they've been playing 2 frontline spinners in home games.

    My guess is he's come back and he's rocking it down at 80mph without a lot of bite. Possibly all the injuries over the years have finally started to have a permanent effect on his bowling.

    If he is fit, then Surrey are doing him a massive disservice IMO.

    Firstly, he cant be expected to hit top form immediately after returning from such a long layoff

    Secondly, it's not as if his "replacements" are remotely in his class

    If they can't expect him to hit top form straight away, then they would be foolish to play him every game.

    The three wicket takers for Somerset so far are 19,20 and 21. The wicketless other three are 31,35,36

    No real point. Just an observation.

    Essex signed Rutherford for the rest of the season as overseas player. Quiney hurt his arm/shoulder taking a catch last week and needs an opp.
