    I assume, after the efforts of Lancashire, it's relegation.

    Well then it's pretty new for a curse.

    That's right Tom, I did not approve of your post, old man howe shakes his cane at you
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    So in that regard, it's been a massive success. But it's also, perhaps unintentionally, limited the quality of international cricketers counties can get. Trent Copeland is basically the perfect overseas player for a county to get, particularly given he ain't going to the IPL anytime soon.

    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

    Also Northants should probably look into signing Copeland for the rest of the season. He's supposed to be going home when the T20's start

    Interesting chase looming at TB. Backing my local boy Gurney to get the job done.

    29-3 now, pretty much done and dusted. Solanki has been a disappointment and the less said about Roy the better. Wonder if it's worth a shot with Davies opening and Wilson taking the gloves, not sure it would help Steve's prospects in the long term though.

    I'm intrigued to know if Richard still believes that Tim Murtagh qualifies as the following....

    D-3: poor-quality British\Irish or European players who do nothing for the game who for some reason have got contracts with second or even third counties (brackets = loan signing).

    Derby lost again, Surrey are about to ... the day's most interesting finish may come at Cardiff, where Essex need 275 in what I make 69 overs. Not making a fast start exactly, but there's plenty of time. Napier's contribution - and where he bats - could be crucial.

    Impressive triple strike by the Gurnster, turning a promising 108/5 into an untenable 128/8

    Looks like it'll be Derby and Surrey going down at this rate.

    I wonder if Punter will be invited to lead the side for the rest of the season once he arrives.

    Not sure if Essex are even going for this, very poor if they're not. By my reckoning they have 44 overs to make another 210, but they're only going at 2.6 an over ... setting a platform is all very well, but they need to start showing more intent.

    Hmmm, just seen the Kent score, I would probably have gone to that if there hadn't been a Test on. Effectively 1 for 6, and it's only day two.

    So not only are Kent getting hammered but with a scorecard like that they surely will be having a pitch inspection and could be docked points.

    Quite possibly, although it's very rare for Canterbury to be penalised, and their batting has been poor for most of the season. I'd hoped that Key, relieved of the pressures of captaincy, might have a good season, but it hasn't really happened for him yet. 19 ahead with two wickets left, it looks pretty hopeless.
