    Nothing much to see here unfortunately. Given that all the veterans are playing I wonder what the average age of the Surrey team is - can't be much under 35. I was looking forward to seeing Ponting, but I missed his innings letting the cat out. Not sure what Wilson and Mahmood are trying to do here - bat out time I suppose. Required rate well into double figures with half the innings remaining.

    Insanely good OD bowling from Napes. Castles Punter (full pint middle stump, to come over all Bumble) and takes a double hat-trick.

    The sound of my knee jerking is probably audible in Essex, but England's limited overs bowling might benefit from a bloke who can bowl inswinging yorkers at 85mph+.

    A few blokes on Twitter were saying the speed gun tonight must have been turned down when they saw Meaker in the low 80s and Masters in the low 70s but I think Napier put pay to that.

    Absolutely, I would have thought his best chance to play international cricket would have come around 2008, when he smashed his 150 against Sussex I think, and was bowling sharply, he should have at the very least been given a run in the T20 side.

    How to save county cricket hey folks, here's a rather clumsily written chunk of prose on how we could improve the county game. Would really appreciate it if you could take a look and comment, be it negative or positive. Cheers.

    From his wiki description "Graham Richard Napier is an English cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm fast bowler, and is capable of bowling 90+mph"

    Well that seems somewhat hyperbolic; I mean - he's quick, but not that quick, surely?

    Probably a troll? I remember seeing a cricketer's Wiki that says he's a professional hero recently.

    Nah it's not a troll; just a slight exaggeration really. He's a high 80s bowler at top speed.

    A couple of years back Napier was bowling at over 90mph consistently, I saw him hit 95mph on a couple of occasions. He's deceptively quick. He's not particularly tall for a quick bowler, but his action is incredibly good. Bout time he started putting it together with the ball again. It was always his batting which got him attention, but for me, it's his bowling that's his best asset. Just a shame he couldn't have bowled a spell like this 3 or 4 seasons ago, as he'd have been picked by England. 2008, 2009 and 2010 he had 3 very good years, performing well for Essex, and in New Zealand with the ball.
