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

    Tbf, Dernbach, Linley and Meaker is a very good County attack. Obviously not in Tremlett's class when at the peak of his powers but if he's sending stuff down at 80% then it's fair enough. It's not like they're picking Paul Franks ahead of him.

    Somerset (Y) Good to see Gregory bowling well.

    And Surrey would argue that their priority is to field the attack most likely to win the game, rather than giving match practice to someone who's still a long way off playing for England again. Dernbach was hardly likely to be left out, Meaker took four today and Linley was as reliable as usual. Jon Lewis can't get in the side either and seems to be there mainly as a backup and mentor to the younger bowlers like Dunn and Jewell. I have no problem with Tremlett getting a go in a few one-dayers but this is one Surrey need to win.

    Seems like only the weather can stop Kent this evening, certainly a mixed performance from them in the field but Worcs look pretty hapless.

    Just posted this in the tour thread, but thought I might as well post it here for anyone who might not read it.

    Would anyone be interested?
    I'll create the thread tonight if anyone shows signs of interest.

    at Kent's attempt to overhaul a modest target of 111. Don't look like getting anywhere near.

    JOverton with the first 5fer of his career. Surrey already in trouble against Notts. Roy is just a poor opener in fc cricket. You'd think they'd swap Roy and Harinath at least.

    Slurry's bowling is nothing special really. They match up a bit better against lower quality batting, guys who can't handle a bit of pace. Against good batting line-ups they're average.

    Yawn. They also play on one of the best batting strips in the country.

    Somerset in trouble here. Let Middlesex get 350 and then lose two best batsmen in a team already one batsman short.

    And Buttler is doomed to fail with Sky focusing on the test

    Buttler still batting at 6. Behind Gregory. Bit of a middle finger to Willis and all those who want him to bat higher when he is behind an allrounder who averages less than 12 in fc cricket.

    Footitt is great. Erratic, expensive but a wickettaker.

    So what?

    Name 6 counties in CC Division One whose bowling attack is inferior to Slurry's.
