Can’t wait for his 3-not much with the off spin as well.


#842

Sounds good


#843

Yeah… Sorry moeen


#844

Booo I wanted to see a game.


#845

Glos play most of their games in Bristol


#846

Just watched that run out. Has Gayle got a gammy knee or something? (Or just showing his age)


#847

Dodgy hamstring. Also he’s a lazy old sod.


#848

Cricinfo seems to be broken. Has it down that Sangakkara got out for 14.


#849

Yorkshire now safe. Hoping Somerset can pull off their escape now.

Middlesex/Hants down with Worcestershire/Northants coming up would make div 1 much more likeable next season.


#850

Hants? Can’t decide if you’ve typo’d in warks and you dislike warks, or you’ve had a brainmelt and put hants in.

Or I’ve missed something glorious.


#851

No sorry, I meant either of Middlesex or Hants going down will increase div 1’s likeability. I’d probably just about favour Hants to stay up. I actually quite like Warks.

Middlesex 15/3 now. Lovely. Sounds like the pitch at Taunton is taking just a little bit of turn.


#852

ah I see, fair enough. Be one hell of a turnaround for Middlesex, champions to relegated. Selfishly, I’d prefer middlesex to go down, as it allows the possibility of going to Lords to see the bears.


#853

Great, then we can agree on Middlesex down. Will forward that to the ECB.


#854

Although poetic justice would send Hants down after last season’s escape, as a native I’d hate to see that. Equally, as my old man is a Middx man, I’d hate to see them go down.

I can’t wait to be retired and spend my entire summer just watching cricket. What a fucking magnificent lifestyle.

#856

Middlesex crying about the pitch at Taunton. If the ECB dock Somerset points over it to keep Middlesex up I will not be happy.


#857

Going to pretty hard for them to do so considering somerset got 236 first innings over 85 overs though isn’t it? If there’s less than 150 runs scored in the rest of the game, maybe they’ll have an argument, but it’s not a good look to be moaning about a pitch at the end of day one when you’re 200 behind.


#858

Yep, and these two have settled down a bit now. Pitch inspectors need to be heading to Grace Road now. Or Edgbaston. They’re busy this morning!


#859

I think the, er… fixture inspectors need to heading out instead, they appear to be playing county cricket a few days short of October. Batting conditions unlikely to be ideal.


#860

It’s RIDICULOUS isn’t it.
