    With Kieswetter it feels like he plays within himself and doesn't take many risks now early in his innings to increase his consistency and knowing that he can accelerate and that he can play relatively risk free and still strike at 120sr early in his innings. This works fine at county level where there are a load of average attacks who even if he'll play a few forward defences will give him something to hit after a while. More of a problem at the international level where there are better bowlers and less bad balls - he plays in the same style and thats how he ends up with a strike rate of a 112.

    It is the problem with county cricket that there is too much mediocre cricket players and good cricketers like Kieswetter can just coast to tournament top scorer with 371 runs @ 53 @ 135.89 without getting out of their comfort zone or taking too many risks.

    This is awesome from Russell. Will win it for them easily if he stays in for a few more overs.

    Would probably give Arafat and Alfonso the next two overs as well, what with the rain about and what not.

    Subject to the overriding discretion of the ECB, acting with the consent of the International Cricket Council, a Cricketer will only be qualified to play for England in a Test Match or in a One Day International Match if:

    (a) he is either a British citizen or an Irish citizen; and either
    (i) he was born within England and Wales; or (ii) he has been resident in England and Wales for the immediately preceding four consecutive years; and

    (b) he has not during the immediately preceding four consecutive years either
    (i) played cricket for any Full Member Country except England at under 17 level or above, or (ii) played First Class Cricket in any Full Member Country outside England and Wales, except as an overseas cricketer under local rules similar to Regulation 3 above or in any other circumtances approved by the ECB...

    Point (b) (ii) would be the issue for Azharullah.

    Hales finding his range. Always looks ugly but pretty effective.

    Yeah he is our long term T20 opener. A mean hitter of the cricket ball. 200 on here for Notts.

    Some of the counties have channels on youtube. Sussex post highlights of their games usually, think Lancashire do the same.

    Going to be a good chase this. Fancy Lancs to get it with there left handers going at that short leg side boundary.

    Watching the Notts - Lancs game and impressed with the crowd. Have they been generally good this T20 season?

    Cobb 3-9

    Saw him bowl somewhere, I think it was the BPL. Seriously bad.
