    Tbh I don't get why Surrey declared, a ttol collapse form us was very unlikely anyway, even with Ballance not in the side for the 2nd innings think they'd have been better off trying to get maximum batting points tbh.

    Yeah, I was thinking that yesterday. Perhaps if they knew that Yorkshire had no intention of making any sort of game of it they'd have gone on, although you'd think that captains do talk to each other. There was always the chance that they might have fallen short and gifted Yorkshire another bowling point but the way Pietersen was going they could have got there in another five or six overs (and got KP to his 200 as well).

    Azharullah showed earlier that Pakistan probably have 20 or so better one day bowlers than some of the chumps that play for England. First ball of a new spell came back and bowled a perfect inswinging yorker to clean up the kid Fell who batted nicely for 55. Chris Russel bowled nicely earlier bucking the trend that you must bowl at less than 75mph to play for Worcs.

    I like the look of this Kapil kid. Only seen 4 balls mind you. Only issue is he's puffing already

    Does anyone have a worse top order than Essex at the moment? Can't bloody buy a run.

    Big ton for Taylor, but doubt it counts much as he doesn't play for Yorkshire.

    Thought you were only allowed to make that comment about Surrey?

    Good to see him in the runs though.

    Less than scintillating final day at TB, once Notts avoided the follow-on the only point of interest was whether Taylor could make his 200, which he did just before the match was put out of its misery. 13th double of the season going into the T20s. Pretty sure that's already more than last year.

    At one point of time, James Taylor was touted to be the next big thing for England..Not hearing much news about him nowadays..Looks like Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Buttler, Bopara, Hales etc have overtaken him..Is he still in England radar?

    He got a double ton in his last innings so if he had dropped off the radar it I'm sure he'll be back on now

    Tremlett's form has been encouragingly ordinary but I wont be happy that he'll be out of the ashes mix until he breaks down.

    That is great. Good luck for the kid..

    Also, I have always had this doubt.. Though I have never seen him play, Peter Trego has decent stats (6000+ runs and 250+ wickets). Also, he hits those runs at a brilliant strike rate.. I remember India's match vs Somerset in which he smashed our bowlers all around the park.. I have also seen few other touring team practice match scorecards vs somerset in which he has done well indicating that he could make the jump to international level..

    Why has he never got a chance to represent England in any format? Is there any apparent weakness?

    Of all those you've mentioned, only Bairstow has overtaken him to be honest, rest are way behind him.
