Haseeb blocks out a maiden. Has he rediscovered the Way of Hameed?

Darren Stevens batting in a jumper again cos it's only 25 degrees

@Haystack_Jnr isn't playing your 6th professional T20 fixture for England the done thing?
by nickcricket6/21/2017 10:13:12 AM
would love to see Hameed get a few today
by PhilStirling6/21/2017 10:12:47 AM
I'm sure someone has already said this, but isn't Crane in the wrong squad - should surely be with the Lions ?

I shall change 191 to 91!

Collapsing before a bloke with over 300 test wickets comes on to bowl, quite the strong start
by Matt_MYano6/21/2017 10:11:26 AM
SA A's 2 new ball bowlers have got pretty decent averages considering they've also played over 60 matches!

Three in the over, first batting point up for Yorkshire. Didn't know they still awarded those
by nickcricket6/21/2017 10:08:25 AM
I'm going with 153, and twelve wickets for Pattinson in the match.

I'm going for 52 again
by dez dezzy6/21/2017 10:07:06 AM
You know Ballance is in good form when he is playing extra cover drives
by nickcricket6/21/2017 10:07:03 AM
by StaggerBreaths6/21/2017 10:06:51 AM
Lions scoring exclusively with fives at the moment!
by SDHoneymonster6/21/2017 10:06:43 AM
I'm going to be brave and back them to make 200 :)
by Beth Watson6/21/2017 10:06:34 AM
or perhaps i will again try for 191!
by jlcis6/21/2017 10:05:49 AM
@BethWatson I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say higher. I'm an optimist.
by SDHoneymonster6/21/2017 10:05:48 AM
by jlcis6/21/2017 10:05:34 AM
Leicester got 134 in their first innings. Higher or lower second time round?
by Beth Watson6/21/2017 10:05:13 AM
It is keeping low at Lords again so Middlesex would be foolish to bat unless their bowlers are falling to bit which they shouldn't be

Stoneman in such good form he's found a way to score five off a single ball.
by SDHoneymonster6/21/2017 10:03:40 AM
Oh dear, Warks really are Div 2 material

by Beth Watson6/21/2017 10:02:54 AM
Getting out at 82 is a good problem to have
by nickcricket6/21/2017 10:02:39 AM
@nickcricket I actually think Root seemed at his best responding to early wickets and fighting fires. He was like a less crabby Chanderpaul. Trying to set the tone for the innings is when he's started getting out seemingly permanently on 82.
by SDHoneymonster6/21/2017 10:00:34 AM
First wicket: Hameed, handling the ball.
by StaggerBreaths6/21/2017 10:00:20 AM
I like Nick's idea. Chef/two openers/Potato/Beard/Ginger/Other Ginger.
by StaggerBreaths6/21/2017 9:58:28 AM
If he makes 2017 his year like Hameed & Jennings did in 2016, not done a bad job so far
by dez dezzy6/21/2017 9:58:26 AM
First wicket - Ballance, bowled going back, back and back and missing the ball
by nickcricket6/21/2017 9:58:20 AM
Give Lawrence another year and he could join Hameed & Jennings in the Test squad of course
by dez dezzy6/21/2017 9:57:35 AM
@SDHoneymonster Quite like Root at 4, splits him up from Cook and does mean he gets in before they are in a real heap. Stokes could bat 5, with Bairstow at 6 but what is the point just leaves extra space lower down for a specialist batsmen. Personally I think Moeen needs to go to 5 and try and make it as a batsmen who bowls the odd over, England need to start looking at people who can develop into Test Match spinners. They won't be perfect from game one so it won't be the worst thing to have Mo there
