    Seems to be happening again. Jordan going at well over 5 an over against the Aussies. Did appear to have Hughes edge behind only to have it dropped though.

    Yes I guess it was natural it was going to happen at some point. You can't go from being inconsistent and a bit rubbish at Surrey to turning into a consistent beast overnight. Be glad that England selectors don't make kneejerk reactions on half a season any longer, unlike us fans. Need a couple of years of consistent cricket before being thought of as a genuine contender, not that he's is lacking in talent.

    Good to see Monty getting a long bowl.

    My feelings on Monty v Kerrigan are that although Kerrigan is the better attacking bowler the combination of Monty and Swann works better than Kerrigan and Swann. Panesar and Swann works well because Monty can bowl a lot of first innings overs economically even when it is reasonably flat. I'd be worried if Kerrigan played that on the flat wickets they'd be a bit expensive and the seamers would be pushed too hard in the first innings.

    Shame Azharullah can't play for England with stats like that. I think he's married to a English lady and has played league cricket over here for a few years but I don't think he's been a British national for long so he probably still has 7 years(if my understanding of the ecb rules is correct) to serve before he can become available for England which is a shame.

    His low arm skiddy full deliveries could be very useful in T20 cricket. Just bowls full and straight tailing the ball into the right hander. Fielding is a bit dodgy though.

    Only on a one year deal at Northants so some other clubs might be sniffing around although Northants are having a good season so if they've got the finances don't see him moving elsewhere.

    Couple of good games tonight. Surrey and Hampshire just getting over the line.

    Had a brilliant evening at Edgbaston today. Good sized crowd (guess would be 12000-15000) saw some good cricket. Varun Chopra is a big talent.

    Yeah, played in the Huddersfield league last year. Scared the **** out of some fellas there, a lot of broken bones facing him from all reports.

    Trego

    Runs score double on Sky, so he's already got a 50.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Some absolute horror stuff from worcestershire in the field so far. Trying to help Somerset through to the quarters.

    Feel for Kieswetter a bit. Hasn't had the greatest time on Sky since he was dropped by England. Buttler's due a Sky fifty as well.

    Trego brings up his century with a glorious cover drive.
