no worries, Nemo. it was a big commitment to take on. Moving house is never fun either!

Hoping Hampshire can back up their last win with another good performance. And happy birthday Balladeer.

Unless your name is Howl or Baba Yaga.

@Dave. Hopefully, I spoke to him the other day and he seems to think he can get England selection whilst he's here. Whether that is the case again next year when his contract is up remains to be seen!

@Opta, i really feel for the likes of Northants and Leicester. Consistently find and bring through good players, but resigned to losing them. Sanderson and Gleeson must be on the radar of a few other counties as well.

No Dawson for Hampshire this week, but Vince and Ervine are due to return.
by Matt Warwick8/23/2016 9:16:19 AM
Yes but Vince will have post-England hangover.
by StaggerBreaths8/23/2016 9:17:47 AM
Maybe. It'll be interesting to see how he goes.

What do we think about the potential Bell return then?
by NemoUKS8/23/2016 9:20:00 AM
He's really not dominated the CC in the way we all expected him to
by NemoUKS8/23/2016 9:20:13 AM
Copy-pasting from the forum, 'can we have him in for the first Test of the series where he'll score his big hundred, then drop him immediately before he can hit a series of pretty twenties?'
by StaggerBreaths8/23/2016 9:21:13 AM
Somerset have the joint fewest batting points in both divisions. You'd have got good odds on that at the start of the season...
by NemoUKS8/23/2016 9:25:50 AM
@Dave. I know, i'm just glad Cobb signed a new 3 year deal the other day! I think Gleeson and Sanderson both signed 2 year deals earlier this year, so they will at least be around for a little while.
by OptaMassey8/23/2016 9:26:10 AM
is Bell really being considered for a re call? Done nothing all year to justify selection.
by dave8/23/2016 9:26:18 AM
Hi all. Bringing Bell back would be basically admitting that no-one else is deemed suitable in the short term at lease
by Haystack_Jnr8/23/2016 9:26:44 AM
No to Bell for me. Blood a youngster, as mentioned on the forum it worked for Cook.
