    Well, Gregory is meant to be a much better batsman than that, despite little evidence to the contrary.

    Somerset for relegation this year, just not happening at all. Joverton is good though

    Another partnership between Ballance and Rashid to forge a lead. Perhaps it's best to keep Ballance where he is after all.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Surrey eight down now, can't leave it to Batty and Wilson every time. Worst thing is they're making Patel look like Bishen Bedi.

    I see Kent got home last night having been 35-5 when I made my prediction of doom. Match finished shortly before 11 pm which is ridiculous, especially mid-week. It was too late for me and I was watching at home!

    Ballance could realistically bat as high up as 3 he'd probably still make the runs.

    Nice stuff by Somerset. They're just short of batsmen in general. Compton and Kieswetter will return in less than a month but Peterson and Buttler are both playing in the CT.

    Well he was a youth opener and he always opened in Zimbabwe domestic cricket as well, even after he entrenched himself in the Yorkshire middle order, so I don't think batting higher up would really hurt him at all. I think he bats where he does more because of the unsuitability of the top four to batting lower than his own strengths - so for balance basically (hardy ha ha), but I would like to see him bat above Gale at the very least.

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

    Fwiw unless Jacques starts making runs I'd be putting Ballance at 3 the only risk with that is if Ballance starts failing we probably lack the quality in a proper batsman to stop a collapse.

    What a season for Chris Jordan, so far, his highest-score now.

    Virus getting called up to the Champions Trophy definitely wouldn't have been something they were preparing themselves for in the pre-season. I wonder if they'll pick up a replacement overseas player for that period. Someone like Brownlie could be a good signing; a quality bat who will already be in the country, pretty acclimated due to the Tests and not involved in the Champions Trophy.

    RavBo ton, that's nice

    Just seen Freckingham took 6 more wickets yesterday, he's fast becoming a favourite

    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

    18* so far from Bres. England will be kicking themselves to have missed out on these crucial runs.
