I know the Curran brothers are unavailable for a lot of Championship games but I cannot see why Dunn is still in the squad. He should have been released

Reece Topley took 5 for 66 in Gloucestershire's first innings in the previous game but wasn't in the team against Leicestershire. Is he injured again or is he unable to play back to back games?

The guy on BBC Radio London had a chat with Reese during the game and it’s managing his workload as he’s had very little red ball cricket in recent times.
However, they did have Plunkett on 12th man duties so maybe could have used him.

Plunkett vs Dunn with the red ball.

Next week we discuss Aylott vs Langley up front....:p

Thanks

I thought that with his history of injuries he may have picked up another one. Managing his return to red ball cricket will hopefully see him play a few times in the CC

I think his height as a fast bowler contributes to his body not being up to playing every game.

If Surrey put their minds to it they could lose this one inside three days

Prince Phillip 23-04-2021 07:41 PM

If the skipper can shovel another 50-70 runs through midwicket - allied to a bit of tail waggage - could set a total. Give Amla a bowl, otherwise the accounts department might start to query his salary....

You have got to be a optimist supporting Surrey and Palace. Backed Palace at 15/2 to win Monday as well. Burns losing his wicket first thing hardly helps things though.

RobertCPFC 24-04-2021 12:13 PM

Not going well for Kent.

Crawley who was the one player who did well yesterday was out first ball of the day as well.

LuieJack 24-04-2021 12:22 PM

It's hard trying to imagine how much worse Surrey can get, the season has barely started and we are already looking lost, where and how has it all gone so badly wrong? surely our "legend" Alec Stewart needs to take a long hard look at his leadership as currently we look like a ship without a rudder.

Ruskin Old Boy 24-04-2021 01:29 PM

Just checked the scores, was it really 105-3 at start of play? That was some collapse.

Further confirmation that the County Championship is of little or no interest to Gould and Stewart.

cappuccinoeagle 24-04-2021 02:58 PM

Yes, metronomic Murtagh & Roland- Jones bowled especially well but that was pee poor from a Surrey batting lineup with 5 internationals in the top order. A few dropped catches too.
Next week, Hampshire with Mohammed Abbas & Kyle Abbott leading the attack!

Prince Phillip 24-04-2021 06:55 PM

Subcontinental Homesick Blues. In the same IPL match so far today, Morgan run out without facing a conker and Buttler dismissed for sub-double figures again. They must fancy jumping on a Triple-Seven to Heathrow soon.

Tim Murtagh another Surrey man who we should have kept. Been brilliant for Middlesex and still performing at 40. A good toss to win I think for Middlesex but no excuse for the poor batting from such established batsmen.

Prince Phillip 24-04-2021 07:46 PM

The hard working County yeoman is so far removed from Surrey's Chequebook Charlies (or whatever the digital equivalent is)
24 years since the publication of Simon Hughes' "A Lot of Hard Yakka" and it's still the seminal account of the sweaty, blistered-toe coal face of Championship cricket. Surrey haven't got any Yakka at all at the monent, let alone hard.

Well, I checked what I thought would be the LATEST score at 2.30ish only to find it was long finished - So the first part of the above statement resoundingly stands. Actually it was unfair to compare them to Palace, who despite everything they put us through, are still (just about) holding their own, in a very strong league.

Whereas a team containing 3 current England players, 2 who have played Test Cricket for England, a current ODI and T20 Eng player, a spinner who was in the Test party in India, an ex Top South African heavy run scorer, would do a little better than score less than 300 in 2 innings against a team, who have lost their first 2 games and let mighty Leics score 600 plus runs for 13 wickets.

Absolutely fecking useless:embarass:

Chobham Eagle 24-04-2021 08:31 PM

Yep, good news as he is quality. Hopefully he will as he is technically a very good player, unlike Burns and Sibley who bat very unorthodox and have been found out at Test level.

LuieJack 25-04-2021 07:25 PM

Surrey are beyond belief and each and everyone connected should hang their heads in shame by their shameful performances to date, and the Middlesex defeat summed it up perfectly.
That was not just a defeat but a spineless surrender, how has it all gone so wrong Alec Stewart? GET IT SORTED.

Olympian2 25-04-2021 11:42 PM

Wow, couple of notable results today.

Glocs last pair held out for 17 overs to get a very good draw vs Hants.

Northants & Glamorgan scored >1400 runs between them. Glammy scored >400 in their 1st innings & declared just 5 down in their 2nd but still lost!

I don't know what's happened with Kent this season. I thought it may not go well but I didn't see it starting this badly. The batting seems to be failing in every match so far.

Itís a really decent batting lineup as well at County Level. Denly canít buy a run, Crawley isnít showing his England form and Kuhn has come back in and looked poor.

Apart from when they scored >450 (& 42-1) vs. Northants of course.

Burns fell 4 short of matching every Hampshire bastman combined, Amla has now doubled that and Pope is well clear of doing it too.

You were saying? Could lose by an innings and Glamorgan only made 197. Pathetic so far this season. Not sure Denly has got double figures. Crawley not doing his England selection chances much good with his start to the season.

Relying on a 45 year old to win us games

Smith in ahead of Foakes, looking to get a wriggle on. Perfect platform for Smith, he could wreak havoc here. Suspect Jordan Clark & Overton will both have a swing too, if needed.

Losing consecutive home games to Yorkshire and Lancashire is bad enough but this is verging on the embarassing in Cardiff today.

Stevens wicket has just summed up how abject this Kent batting performance is.

Season over by the end of April :rolleyes:

Not verging it's totally embarrassing ! We have had one decent innings out 8 and the other 7 were complete pony. Our team consists of Stevens and Milne with only a tiny bit of help from Cox and Bell Drummond the last game.
Klaasen in a sunday league bowler at best and Cummins looks like a panic signing who is awful, yes we have had a couple of injuries but they were pretty crap before anyway.

Like you say season over before the start of May whilst our captain is handing drinks out in India with no chance of a game. Whilst i understand that even if Billings were to be here it might not have made any difference but who knows ? Tactical changes and the wrong decisions on the win of a toss might have helped, if you ask me a captain should be with you from day one until the end.

Maybe because we see ourselves a bit like Palace the odd cup final every decade and we bottle it we don't really expect any league success we just enjoy following the team,we have some good games and some bad and some inbetween but the start of this season has been disgraceful all round with crap management, on field and off field decisions, terrible bowling, even worse batting and poor recruiting especially our overseas player.

As Geoff Boycott used to say it doesn't matter how many runs you score you'll not win a match unless you can take twenty wickets.

Yep, lovely win. I watched some of it throughout the day. Clarke, Clark & Roach all seemed to get plenty out of the pitch on Days 1 & 3 whereas Hants got absolutely nothing out of on Day 2. Maybe Surrey simply bowled better. On the whole we caught well, too.

Of course, consistency is key.

Yes, great bowling for sure.

I'm probably in a minority thinking this, but I feel it's very artificial, and it turns the County Championship into a bit of a farce, when you can just ship in a top class player for a few games then ship him out again. Personally, if we're short, I'd rather see one of our youngsters promoted

I know what you mean, Spike. Overseas players used to have semi-permanent status with a single County team in years gone by (Lloyd - Lancs, Haynes & Daniel - Middx, Procter - Glocs, Marshall & Barry Richards - Hants, Clarke & Howarth - Surrey, Garner & Viv Richards - Somerset, Rice, Hadlee - Notts, Imran Khan - Sussex).

Now, as you say, Counties and players seem to have adopted a revolving door policy. I agree itís a shame.

Bringing in a back-of-a-length, tall, bang-it-in bowler on early season April/May English wickets was never the wisest of choices. Why pick up young bowlers from the fringes of other counties, like Nathan Gilchrist but leave him ferrying jumpers and hand sanitiser on to the pitch?

When you add in our other 'overseas' player is Heino Kuhn who, while the squad was (poorly) preparing for the new season, was stuck in SA and then quarantine over here and carrying a knock, it's not difficult to see where the problems lie.

As you have mentioned, the County Captain currently spending his time playing the Playstation in Delhi causes futher ire :wallbash:

Been a bit out of the loop after hip op. What's happening with Surrey t20 tickets? Got the first 3 social distance ones but what about the next 4 starting with Essex.? Are they as per norm using your card or do you have to apply separately?

Been told by Surrey the other games I just turn up with card.

Anyone following/at the Surrey game?

Was watching the live stream while working, going on nicely in tricky conditions 135-0, but went away for an hour. Now 142-6.

Just turn up, I think, post 21st June.

I've booked in a group with non members so allocated seats for those but as far as I can see members block is unreserved.

Six wickets lost for seven runs. Good old Surrey.

So, it was your fault then :)

Surrey score 135 runs for the first wicket then rain sends the players to the pavilion with the score 146-6

Another outstanding performance

I was there. At lunch, I did say to my mate that I couldnít believe that we were 95-0 after being put in. Apart from the 1st Murtagh over, Rocky & Burns didnít really look in any trouble.

Looked like Middx bowlers had some home truths delivered at lunch - was no surprise that all 6 wickets were LBW or caught WK/slip.

Middx definitely had the better of the day but not by much, considering the conditions - horribly overcast & windy all day.

The two Richards - Thompson & Gould - were in attendance but I didnít speak to either. New stand looks decent but difficult to comment as only one small lounge was open due to it not being finished.

Back tomorrow for more of the same (difficult batting conditions & rubbish weather) tomorrow. Play until tea, I expect. Could go either way.

Anyone else there tomorrow?

WTF is Stevo up to this time?
150 partnership for 9th wicket and his partner has scored a single!
