morning all. Good toss for somerset to win. Nemo, i share your disappointment re: Joverton. Looked really good last week. As he missed the first few games due to injury i'm surprised he needs resting already?

also hope Allenby can kick on, having had by far his best week in a Somerset shirt last week.

Both Middlesex and Somerset have a thirty something year old Ozzie as captain. How many English captains are there on the circuit?

@DaveBrown Would always prefer to err on the side of caution with a young quick RE: Jovo, but having looked like he'd got some rhythm I'd have been tempted to play him here - finally beginning to string a bit of consistency together. Good to see Meaker back though if we're looking for bowlers with proper #wheels

Also would love for a side to call for the toss, win it, and decide to bowl anyway at some point soon, just to mess with people.

@DaveBrown Warks, Durham, Yorkshire, Surrey, Lancs, Hants and Notts all do in Div 1

In addition, Middlesex's one-day and Twenty20 captains are both England-qualified, not sure about Somerset tho.

The CC's leading run scorer is the first wicket of the day

i have slightly mixed feelings about rotation. It is a long season, although compared to yeater-year, perhaps not? But, if a player is playing well then surely playing is the best thing to do, especially Joverton who has been inconsistent to say the least over the years.
by Dave Brown5/22/2016 10:10:26 AM
@strangepsbcric Allenby captains in limited overs and he's England-qualified
by SDHoneymonster5/22/2016 10:10:58 AM
@Stranger, every team bar Somerset then! Somerset's one day captain is Allendy

Chesney vs Coles would've been a decent bout in the boxing ring judging by the size of both, cricket feels a bit tame for them.
