    Good to see Livingstone going well for the Loins again, we are going to need plenty of runs from him next year.

    Anyone been keeping an eye on this rawlins u19 lad. Seems to score runs every time he bats
    Was he stole from WI though?

    Club Statement: Marlon Samuels lol, Derbyshire no longer interested in Samuels. They obviously didn't take too kindly to him disclosing his potential contract details to the press. clown.

    Rawlins and Bartlett the two standouts in the u19 batting. Be interesting to see if they can make a breakthrough this year at their counties. I don't think either was been particularly close last year. Someone who can play spin you would think would be ideal for Somerset. Slot Bartlett in at 6 instead of Allenby or vDM possibly.


    http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakistan...y/1083497.html Imagine being on the overseas reserve list for the PSL final. Come in just for the final in Lahore when none of the other overseas players travel. Get Max Waller and Darren Stevens on the next flight to Lahore.

    Some of the foreign players rather cynical with their use of twitter. Would never comment about blasts or terrorist attacks outside the western world generally but now they are potentially heading to Lahore for the finals they are happy to bring up blasts and send sympathy. I can't see many of the foreign players going.

    WICB seem to be in a real mess. They've been clashing with their players for a while now. Can't understand why Marlon missing the 50 over regional stuff means he has to miss the national team. Imagine the ODI team they could have if they just relaxed their stance a little. Gayle, Pollard, Bravo, Russell etc...

    ^With your point on overseas players going to the final, I can't see any of them going either. Pakistan authorities need to show they can handle events after the fiasco of the Sri Lankan team bus and particularly the treatment of the umpires coach on that day.

    Stolen from Bermuda, if anything, and apparently he went to school in Sussex through a scholarship organised by the Bermudan Cricket Board.

    Leach not so prolific now that he's not chucking them down. Should get a petition going to have Notts reinstated and Somerset down in div 2 after this egregious abuse of the game.

    SL A showing our guys how to bat long periods this game. Westley has had a good winter but you need more than flashy 80s and 90s to nail a spot. It's endemic with England senior teams at the moment. Guys like Bairstow, Stokes and Buttler don't setup to bat long times. Guys like Cook and Root have done it, but through form and concentration issues aren't doing it right now.

    Terrific match for Livingstone. Hadn't even debuted in first class cricket this time last year. I kinda assumed that he was some kind of slogger hack with an iffy technique given he scored lots of runs for Lancs 2nds and yet never got a game in first class cricket.... but obviously not. Might be leapfrogging a whole lot of players this tour. Leach doing a good job attempting to block out for a draw.

    I don't think the Jennings/Hameed failures are too worrying yet. I think it would probably be a bit of a buzzkill going from test cricket back to lions cricket.

    I think historically we have generally been pretty slow at giving younger players chances in the first team. That changed a little in the last 2 years under Giles with the likes of Hameed, Jones, Mahmood, Parkinson, Davies & Livingstone being given chances, hopefully that continues and Chapple/Chilton don't prioritize their mates but our seconds used to be clogged up with players in their early 20s that had shown potential but not given chances. Still Livingstone was batting 6/7 for most of last year, he needs to bat higher this year and there is no reason he shouldn't bat 4 in our lineup.

    Jennings hasn't done too badly, just hasn't gone on with it yet. Every innings in these games seems to have started with a clatter of early wickets. He's scored 122 runs in 4 innings, 5th highest in the series.

    Pushpakumara's record generally and in this series is insane. You wonder how he hasn't played for Sri Lanka yet.

    Well I know England are chasing via D/L so there was presumably rain around and they declared to get a game in.

    Livingstone contributing with the ball today, 1-28 off 10 when the rest of the bowlers took a bit of tap.

    Combined Northerners side would look pretty decent these days, something like

    Hameed
    Lyth/Lees
    Root
    Borthwick
    Bairtstow+
    Livingstone
    Bresnan
    Rashid
    Wood
    Anderson
    Brooks/Onions

    That's ignoring transplants otherwise it gets even better with Stokes and other people available like Jennings, Ballance, Buttler.
