Worcs have a decent shot at promotion. Good seam, good middle order, batting all the way down. If BDO comes good with his batting and his spin we're as good as anyone, especially when Broad leaves for England

No word on where Robson would end up. Derby on cards?

Money, I presume Sam.

Essex are half way there!

What is the incentive for counties to sign players like Moeen Ali, who play for England in all formats? They'll be lucky to get two games a season out of them.
by Sam Inglis4/16/2017 12:57:40 PM
@AneeshKumar Worcs batting line-up starts at 3 and ends at 11 it seems! Young bowling attack reliant on Hastings too
by Beth Watson4/16/2017 12:57:17 PM
I for one, would welcome Moeen Ali to Lancs. Great player.

UPDATE: Match delayed by rain, Durham 201/7 (58.3 ov, lead by 58 - 2nd inns) v Notts

Its going to be tough for Worcs to be promoted. They do have the talent in their ranks. Would love to see how much Joe Clarke gets in a cold afternoon in Chester-Le-Street. He would be the key in their promotion chase
by Aneesh Kumar4/16/2017 12:55:59 PM
Any word yet on where Robson might turn up?
by Beth Watson4/16/2017 12:55:41 PM
Meanwhile Angus Robson laughs into his job application forms.
by StaggerBreaths4/16/2017 12:54:48 PM
@DuluthK.Archaeopteryx If the rumours are true that Moeen Ali is considering a return to Warks because he wants Div 1 cricket, it would be somewhat ironic if we swapped places come September! long way to go though...
by Beth Watson4/16/2017 12:54:15 PM
The two Ws might well be playing each other next season. Should get Hain back into form. Thousands of lovely second division runs.

Oops, include Hodd in that list. That means the Yorkies have 7 home grown players too.
by Aneesh Kumar4/16/2017 12:53:57 PM
@BethWatson This is how the wheel turns; you can guarantee that next season they'll be laughing at our expense again. Still, I'll enjoy it while it lasts!
by Duluth K. Archaeopteryx4/16/2017 12:52:31 PM
Willey, Ballance and Handscomb are not homegrown. The rest of them are.

Haha a happy one from Midlands

Is it just me enjoying Worcestershire's perfect start and Warwickshire's dismal efforts? Teehee!
by Beth Watson4/16/2017 12:49:21 PM
Oh yeah! Notice that? That's us. A team made up for local shite and overseas shite, with 4 good players

Oh Trotty. ☹️

McKay surely must take it relative to the quality around him.

McKay, Rory Kleinveldt and John Hastings are miles better than McLaren....I wish Lancashire could have signed Hastings.

Can we have Mellor as Alex Barrow rank on the forum next season?

Meanwhile, Hampshire need 34 in 5 overs for a batting point. Unlikely, but who knows?
by Matt Warwick4/16/2017 12:43:27 PM
Yes...George Bailey is Hants; overseas.....a bit better than McLaren.
