Stevie Eskinazi's fourth career first-class hundred has given Middlesex a decent chance of overhauling Warwickshire's total. The South Africa-born right-hander escaped one chance on 56, put down by Ambrose off Jeetan Patel's first ball, but has batted very well. It has been a challenge, too, with quite a number of balls keeping low.

@dezdezzy Decent side, 7 Current Test players and circa 8 ODI players. Bowlers a bit fluid and does first reserve count as an ODI player?

Crickey Nick, I have found that i'm useless at picking XI's for each format, I change my mind on a daily basis.

The batting order could change but the 11 players should stay the same

@MrOzhotham. not looking good at Scarborough weather wise
by Will7/4/2017 2:35:27 PM
That split between the two colours of ball does worry me, little game for everyone. If you had to pick an XI for all three forms of Cricket. 3 Tests, 3 ODIs and 3 T20s who would you go for?
by nickcricket7/4/2017 2:33:52 PM
17 off the last over. I guess the answer's yes.

Somerset got any chance of getting back out today?
by MrOzhotham .7/4/2017 2:32:24 PM
Yep the summer is very good for providing an England player white or red ball with all of either form of Cricket they want but if England want a Test batter between the SA and WI series then everyone will be three weeks into hit and giggle
by nickcricket7/4/2017 2:32:03 PM
Hants now 80 short of an all-time first class record score. Again my question is: do they know and will they go for it?
by Ludwig Skraff7/4/2017 2:31:15 PM
I was just perusing the fixtures, I see that Lancs play only one 4 day game before the 28th August. Presumably Habeeb won't get a chance of a Test this summer, there's precious little chance for him to find any form now. Pretty much the same for anyone after these games.

County Cricket Live Awards
Jon Culley at Warwicks v Middlesex 114-2
Jeetan Patel has broken Middlesex's second wicket partnership with his second ball, which Dawid Malan went back to cut but edged through to 'keeper Tim Ambrose, who just about managed to hang on to the catch, having dropped Steve Eskinazi off the spinner's first delivery. The stand actually added 89, the score having been 25-1 when Nick Compton retired hurt. Compton, in fact, has come out to resume his innings after being hit on the inside of his left knee.
