@nickcricket Yes. He'll probably play on Thursday in place of Wheal
by GeorgePotter194/24/2017 9:50:20 AM
@nickcricket Ooh he starts the day 15 short of his career best. Go Stephen go!

Hampshire fans is Mason Crane likely to play any 50 Over Cricket at this point in the season?
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:43:09 AM
Beth Watson - True, who knew Stephen Parry could bat?
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:42:32 AM
@nickcricket I love a good forward defensive as much as the next man/woman but I think the Lancs/Somerset game looks beautifully poised :)
by Beth Watson4/24/2017 9:39:52 AM
Beth Watson - The Hants/Yorks game until Ballance is out because some men just want to hear the world block
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:38:23 AM
@MattWarwick Assuming Yorks score at around 100 a session, we'll need them out before tea
by GeorgePotter194/24/2017 9:37:05 AM
NemoUKS - Doesn't rate Reece Topley
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:36:39 AM
Drop the one day captain before the first game?
by NemoUKS4/24/2017 9:36:14 AM
Hard to place people like if Willey opens the batting he is an allrounder but I suspect he won't this year. In fact it quite hard to know what order Yorkshire will lineup in. I would like to have Bairstow as keeper but what if they bat him at 6? Behind Root, Ballance and Handscomb. I would be tempted to ask Root to open and drop Lees to stop everyone coming in too late
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:32:15 AM
Morning gents :) Which commentary should I tune into today then?
by Beth Watson4/24/2017 9:32:07 AM
Hants managed 7 wickets yesterday, hopefully they can manage another 7 today. Just a bit quicker, so we can chase down any target.
by Matt Warwick4/24/2017 9:31:04 AM
NemoUKS - Is there enough data to tell, can't have played for than a handful of matches since becoming England ODI captain
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:28:07 AM
Cook's domestic record is actually really quite good, isn't it?
by NemoUKS4/24/2017 9:27:14 AM
Well apart from 94 grand for Ally Cook, wonder how many will sign him?
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:26:01 AM
NemoUKS - Fair point make him better value I guess, think you have got the values pretty spot looking for a bargain but it looks like you get what you pay for at this stage
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:25:23 AM
Still get points for batsmen taking wickets and bowlers scoring runs so it matters little
by NemoUKS4/24/2017 9:22:46 AM
NemoUKS - That is because they spent all their money on Ben Stokes
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:21:58 AM
Probably, one day 'all rounders' are a bit tougher to judge but seeing as you get four batsman/bowler slots and two all rounders I erred on the side of specialism
by NemoUKS4/24/2017 9:21:49 AM
I will go with 4 draws in the Div 1 matches. Can't see Hants blasting through Yorkshire quick enough
by GeorgePotter194/24/2017 9:20:48 AM
Shouldn't Liam Livingstone be an all rounder?
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:20:36 AM
Supergiant these days, I think they lost all their friends...
by NemoUKS4/24/2017 9:18:49 AM
The Rising Nickasaurus Supergiants will soon be entered!
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:18:33 AM
Some runs for Abell would certainly be very welcome
by NemoUKS4/24/2017 9:18:32 AM
The Somerset Lancs game has swung so many times I really couldn't call it! Hopefully the Cidermen will keep them to under 300 and Abell will hit the winning runs at about 5pm today
by Mark Ofield4/24/2017 9:16:50 AM
One Day Cup for a few weeks up next isn't it? We've started a league over at cricketxi.com for the tournament, in case the county champ doesn't sate your thirst enough. League code WJDFOISF
by NemoUKS4/24/2017 9:13:07 AM
Do we think Surrey can force a result today? Would need to have a good first session and getting Bell early is vital
by acarey874/24/2017 9:12:45 AM
Could be some close finishes today but have a feeling that the weather may just spoil it.
by Dave Knibb4/24/2017 9:12:42 AM
Hopefully it sets up a big season for him, before his ODI call up he used to be a very fine domestic white ball player so perhaps he can rediscover that side of his game as well.
by nickcricket4/24/2017 9:12:24 AM
Morning all. Excellent match reports as ever, even the ECB provided ones seem to be improving, bit more character and less just listing what happened on the scorecard. Lots of wonderfully poised matches today... Somerset need early wickets.
by NemoUKS4/24/2017 9:11:55 AM
Delighted to see Ballance doing what he does best so well
by Will4/24/2017 9:05:29 AM
Morning all, I expect Hants to win and just hope it won't be easy. Lots of quality for Yorkshire in Ballance, Handscomb and Bairstow but a bad 25 mins and it will all be over. Hopefully Jonny will get a bit of time in the middle even if he doesn't get a big score to help set him up for the RLODC
Paul Edwards: Selectors searching for reasons why Liam Livingstone should represent his country in next month's one-day internationals against Ireland did not have to ransack videos for their buttressing arguments this chilly, sunlit Sunday at Emirates Old Trafford
