Its influence in English Cricket so you would expect them to have roles here, not sure who some of them are Bryan Henderson anyone? Farbrace should take the Yorkshire job to try and increase his standing

will be interesting, and perhaps a tad sad, to see if the weather plays a part in this round of fixtures, similar forecasts at Southampton and Edgbaston today, but when I checked this morning tomorrow looking much more ropey at Edgbaston. Would be a real shame if either game suffered with weather and denied Middlesex or Yorks what looks like a deserved win

On Yesterdays play, I thought it was very inconsiderate of Lees to get out and then Yorkshire not to send in a nightwatchmen as it robbed us the chance to play BallyBingo. Then Gary came out playing like it was a T20 and got 17 off 18

Interesting that Moe comes in so comparatively high. You'd expect someone like Buttler to overpower him, but I guess Moe's status as a status symbol for young Asians and Muslims in Britain counts for a bit.

Joe T Williams - Good idea, will kick it off at 11. Well the teams know the forecast so its up to them to push the games forward. Yorkshire 128 ahead already but how many will they think they need?

StaggerBreaths - Although British Indians boo him so who knows

Charlotte Edwards another big missing person. Only two women in there full stop.

I guess that's still recognising his influence Nick. Albeit in a beyond-shoddy way.
