    50 against a strong Middlesex attack a decent start.

    Good to see Tresco get some early runs as well.

    Apparently Tres has really been working on issues with his technique, which must have crept in recently. Or maybe you need to change it when you get older. Yet it's good he's still working hard.

    Not had the greatest footwork usually has he? Reckon if you rely on your eye to much when you get older you can fall away. Happened to Sehwag.

    Though he scored buckets well into his thirties playing that way, so it might not be relevant at all.

    No he hasn't, he talked in his book about having to work really hard on working out which balls to leave. Maybe it' some variation on that, may have fallen into old habits, happens when you get decrepit.

    Is there any possible way to get highlights of that Sehwag innings? Or was it not televised?

    Bad news for the T20 in May against SL is that Willey and Topley are both still injured and haven't started bowling yet and aren't expected to start the season. Both would have been in with a big chance of a callup for the game - hopefully with Bresnan joining Dernbach on the reject fence. They should be back by then but I doubt they'll have had enough cricket by then to be selected for international cricket.

    Good thing about England going out is that I might get to see Moeen at the Rose Bowl.

    This pre season has been disastrous for northants. Bird now out of the whole season(but obviously can bring in another overseas but hard to get better than Bird). Wakely out for the season. Willey not bowling yet. Duckett struggling with his knees. Something else that I can't remember.

    Not a big squad either.

    Must be pretty galling given the high they were on from promotion.

    Championship: Warwickshire
    Relegated: Northants, Sussex
    Div 2 Promoted: Hampshire, Derbyshire
    Bottom: Leicestershire or Worcestershire if Ajmal (literally) doesn’t turn up.

    Tougher to predict than normal because so much is up in the air with England. If Onions plays for England all summer Durham could easily go down (but I said that last year).



    May not think county cricket is great at producing england cricketers but I do love all the cricket on a personal level. Just loads of stuff to follow, statistics and good honest cricket. Looking forward to it.

    Twenty minutes until play starts in the Parks, and so long as this queue in Barclays starts moving faster than an English T20 innings, I might get there to watch it, complete with thick coat. Not a morning when you want to bat... or indeed one when you want the ball hit in your direction. One of those few days the keeper might be able to start feeling smug; until the ball dips late and cannons into his finger end. About half a mile away now, but everything says win toss and bowl... which the students have promptly done.

    Good start for the students. Mullaney cleaned up second ball and then Patel nicked off, fencing at a widish one without really moving his feet.
