    Was at Northampton tonight for that one. Fairly average game of cricket if we're honest and I've also contrived to lose my glasses somewhere in the process. Looking forward to driving home wearing sunnies.

I'm guessing the fact that they went back on their words is the reason that article appeared on Cricinfo. Somerset have come out and said that it's not true (although I guess they would for now) so at the moment it's still just rumours.

    Like I said, I still think Kies is the better gloveman, and Somerset clearly agree, at least to an extent, which is why he's still the predominant wicketkeeper. I mean, it's not like CK isn't worth his salt as a specialist batsman, so there's no major reason for them to stick with him if they thought Jos was superior.

    Edit: My point in the first sentence being that they must've been unimpressed by Buttler so far in the T20's to go back to Craig.
    They actually went back to Kies a short while ago. Tonight was meant to be the make or break game though for some reason. I'm guessing it's because it's the one after Jos has aired his complaints.

    He's hardly setting the world on fire domestically though. Shame.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Good comeback from Essex so far today. Now, let's see if the top order can score more than half a dozen.

    But would Buttler want to move to any of these counties if they were stuck in the second division? I would love Buttler at Glos and it makes sense geographically but it would be a big move to make as he would be likely stuck in division 2 and not challenging in the OD competitions. Finances are extremely tight at a lot of these counties- Worcs, Glos, Glam, Derby.

    Lancashire maybe if they get promoted but Alex Davies is meant to be a potentially very good wicketkeeper batsman. If that is true it wouldn't make much sense to bring Buttler in.
    Middlesex a possibility as Simpson is one of the poorer wkbats in div 1. Rossington doesn't look great as a keeper but has batting talent.

    Just depends how these counties rate their keepers coming through.

    Sussex could be an option as Brown is meh, and Prior doesn't keep when he comes back anyway most of the time and as they play different formats of the game for England would work well.

    How long is Read gonna go on at Notts? They normally pick up the England players.

    Maybe Northants if they get promoted as Murphy is average. Again could be about how they rate Duckett.

    Warwickshire maybe but Ambrose is only 30 and has been in great form this season.

    I'd say Sussex, Middlesex or Lancashire most likely.

    Finn should be playing for Middlesex this week. Flower & Cook must have decided before today that he wouldn't be playing in this test, and he needs as much proper cricket as possible to find some form. Annoying lack of foresight.

    He's on the way down isn't he? Better than nothing and we don't know for sure when the decision was taken to change - I suspect it wasn't as early as 36 hours ago.

    hell of a knock by the yorkshire kid. Seems to have the right idea about making it count when the going is good. Should be the easiest thing about batting but so often people give it away when there are hundreds of runs to be made against a tiring attack on a good wicket.

    Kerrigan on for a big haul. Already 12 in the match and Glamorgan faltering on the last day.

    Earlier in the season Glamorgan couldn't chase down 154 against Lancs so they've got bad memories. Glamorgan v Lancashire at Colwyn Bay, May 1-3, 2013 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Not a game I expected to get interesting - if England do want a second spinner at any point then I reckon Kegga should be their man now

    Nah, not on this performance, Nathan McCullum got five, must be a bunsen deluxe.

    It probably wasn't. But I think it should have been after his performance at Trent Bridge, the obvious lack of trust from his captain, and I don't really see how things might have changed in the last 48 hours or whatever it is.

    Final check on the pitch?

    Would've been extremely odd to name him in the squad one day then send him away the next so once he was named they couldn't really remove him that soon.
