Following wills fun fact.....one of my own.....I think Flintoff was over rated as an all rounder.

Over in Poland for a wedding so won't be able to keep up with the cricket today, not that I expect anything of significance to happen at headingley or lords, what's weather like round the counties today? Somerset win will put pressure on us with a draw likely.....

Another fun fact - Stokes now has more centuries and 5 wicket hauls in his career than Flintoff

@StaggerBreaths - sometimes you can just tell that Stokes is in the zone though... e.g at Lords v NZ in 2015. Anyway I've jinxed him good & proper now - sorry Ben!

Botham is the only cricketer to have hit 100 and taken a 5WH in the same game more than twice - he managed hit 5 times

That is getting massively ahead of ourselves Dez, I reckon Stokes has as much chance as anyone to come unstuck at the top of a new day.

Thanks Will... be only the 3rd then.

If it rains enough to allow Warwickshire to get out of this mess then it's the ultimate proof I need that God is a racist who hates the West Country.
