@nickcricket - forgot about him! - suppose he'll have to go 5. Think Sanga leaves halfway through for the CPL so Moises would slot in at 3 or 4 then

Also has Charlie Shreck just retired

@Bucko77gc Yes, he did it last year at Yorkshire as well the results were mixed. My memory is he often took up a lot of deliveries getting in and rarely paid it back.
by nickcricket7/4/2017 10:22:28 AM
ooo yeah I forgot Carver as well
I mean they still have some pretty good strength in depth so I think they'll be okay. Worry for them is they need the all rounders to score runs

INDIVIDUAL 150: JL Denly 153* (197) Kent 457/1 (102.1 ov, won the toss) v Northants

I would expect to see Waite/Fisher in that Yorkies team instead of Coad
by Matt_MYano7/4/2017 10:18:24 AM
No wonder Graves thinks the blast in mediocre TKC, Marsh, Lyth, Handscomb wk, Leaning, Bresnan, Rashid, Plunkett, Willey. Rafiq, Coad

'Because the club has focussed on 4 day cricket' LIKE ANY GOOD CLUB EVER.
by StaggerBreaths7/4/2017 10:12:49 AM
What I thought was a strong side came out with 13 points still remaining! Dropped Handscomb for Michael Klinger and Liam Livingstone for Sam Northeast.
by Kieran Layer7/4/2017 10:12:17 AM
@Kieran: I couldn't resist Foakes at that rating! Davies at Lancs is also 2 and therefore also in.
by Brendan Mulcahy7/4/2017 10:10:41 AM
Just noticed the world no.1 T20 bowler is also valued at 3 (Imran Tahir)!
by dez dezzy7/4/2017 10:09:32 AM
@JoeWilliams Because the club has focused on 4 day cricket so the likes of Brooks, Sidebottom ect rest during the blast. The local batting has never really suited T20 either, in fairness if they can get enough runs on the board they have got Plunkett, Willey and Rashid
by nickcricket7/4/2017 10:09:30 AM
Ben Foakes at 2?! Who put this league together?
by Kieran Layer7/4/2017 10:08:57 AM
Joffra Archer only priced at 3. That is an absolute steal.
Rule scoring is slightly weird though, you get bonus points for batting at quicker than a run a ball and bowling less than a run a ball, which seems to be more 50 over than 20 over friendly

if England are going to play Dawson, they might as well have picked Dazza Stevens as just a bloke who can do a job
by Matt_MYano7/4/2017 9:32:20 AM
Morning all. I hope Felix Organ (U19s) makes it in the game, he'd be a lovely addition to many a rainy day theme XI. On T20 fantasy, I'm fairly sure the ECB usually run one?
by NemoUKS7/4/2017 9:31:42 AM
by Will7/4/2017 9:25:20 AM
With the Blast starting on Friday are there any fantasy leagues up and running? In the absence of NemoUK i tried setting up one on CricketXI but didn't have much success.
by dez dezzy7/4/2017 9:24:33 AM
@DavidHopps May need to look to Middx or Leics, not sure they have the internet in Derbyshire yet
by Joe Williams7/4/2017 9:20:27 AM
And that was an improvement Will. Question then becomes, who's the best choice to exploit uneven bounce?
by StaggerBreaths7/4/2017 9:20:05 AM
Anderson's had niggles in the last 2 CCC games he's played hasn't he? Not sure if Stokes has bowled more than 10 overs in a day in months? Going to be a tough tough call. I will say this though, Broad at 8 (as suggested by a few yesterday) is a horrifying prospect
by Joe Williams7/4/2017 9:13:47 AM
Interesting to see that The Times reckons Dawson will play on Thursday. To be fair, 5 seamers is too many.

Morning all. Ready for another exciting day of watching Durham thrash around like fish out of water.
