    And, I thought the nb was on top of the number of runs (i.e. 4nb = 4 runs + no ball) but could easily be wrong on that.

    nb are worth 2 in county I know that much but if its 8 runs from one ball in CC I think it could only be a nb 6 could be wrong just as easily as you on that though.

    Should get Murtagh into the England team! Has 28 wickets @ 15.35 in the first division. Took out Peterson for 4 and 0 who has been in brilliant form. Has 8- 50 at Taunton. Wtf is happening? Really annoy Ireland. Won't get the ball above 75mph but shouldn't matter against the Aussies. Murtagh the ashes hero.

    Adil Rashid with his 2nd ton of the season. Yorkshire in total control against the champions.

    yes pretty incredible what yorkshire have done these past few weeks.

    I thought they would really struggle this season and be close to relegation but on current form they're competing towards the top. I still think they might struggle but a run like this should give them some real confidence and a buffer from the relegation zone.

    Warwickshire really missing runs from Chopra at the top of the order. He has been there main top order batsman and has laid the foundations for all the rest to score when its easier later on. Clarke, Woakes and Ambrose not finding it quite so easy coming in at 100-5 rather than last year when they would come in after maybe 70 overs.

    Chopra may be suffering a little from the exposure he has had over the last year with the lions and on the tv. Bowlers are that much more aware of where to bowl at him and that he is the key wicket.

    Really no idea who to call favourites for the championship right now. Possibly Middlesex.

    Excellent effort by Yorkshire, but I really don't like this rule that allows Bresnan to come into the game part way through

    It's the sort of rule that I love. At least while it benefits my team.

    I definitely think it makes sense in the modern game, especially since the opposite equivalent (if a player gets called up to play a higher level of cricket mid-way through the match, he can be replaced) has been allowed for donkeys' years at all levels.

    Yeah, it certainly balances out players having to play bull**** Lions games for warm ups when their Counties have games at the same time.

    Looks like Copeland has found his range for Northants.

    Has Somerset been found out ?

    Rashid again !!

    Yorkshire could finish it today and knock the minor county off the top. Good stuff.

    Copeland has bowled 27 off the 55 overs. Basically bowled unchanged - switched ends once early in the innings but otherwise unchanged. Over two days and with lunch in between and a bit of rain but still nice.

    Copeland finally finding his batting at First Class level over the last Shield season has made him such a incredibly useful domestic cricketer. Many county deals lie in his future.
