Think I spoke too soon. A quick 3 wicket loss puts us back in it with 70 overs left.

ps Our last 4 batsmen get 3 runs between them. Pathetic. We will lose now.

Players are so used to chases of 250 these days. Expect Glocs to see this off.

ANDYEAGLE 11-04-2021 02:44 PM

If it was 250 it would not be too bad but 228? 36/2 So not all over yet.

Surrey lost five for 15.

I hope we lose. This lot have no bottle.

Quite, Wolfie. Glocs put on 139 for the 1st wicket inside 28 overs on Day 2 & are now 182-2 off 33 overs right now.

Recent signings Overton & Clark have taken 0-166 but I bet they're on nice wages in Jolly Old London Town.

Shades of the Rory Hamilton-Brown era I fear, but unfortunately 'Stewie' is untouchable & Gould is literally counting Membership numbers & ...

Yup.

Great win for Somerset at Lords after conceding a 140 run 1st innings deficit.

I said last Sept, that Overton leaving the top team in the Bob Willis Trophy to join the worst team, when he was Somerset's leading wicket taker, was strange.

As you say, it can only be for the s and he's hardly taken a wicket for us, since he's arrived.

Yeah, I remember that 'conversation' - I think I questioned whether you meant Craig but you were spot on :p

Just watching some of it now - Jordan Clark's bowling is atrocious. No wonder Gould needed to keep as much Members' fees as possible - Clark & The Lesser Spotted Plunkett can't have come cheap...

Overton and Clark 13 Overs for 93 runs

Stewie - 'Tough day at the office, need to execute our skills better, good opportunity to put it right quickly'

Gould - 'Kerching, kerching, kerching'

The Cricketing equivalent of Roy and Parish.

Back on it today

Derbyshire vs Worcs
Essex vs Durham
Notts vs Warks
Hants vs Middx
Somerset vs Glocs
Surrey vs Leics
Glamorgan vs Sussex
Kent vs Yorks
Lancs vs Northants

Last time Surrey placed Leics was when KP scored 355. I went to Day 1 & left the ground at stumps with KP & Sanga both 35* thinking ‘It might be a decent watch tomorrow’...

In other news, Stevo has become the oldest person since 1933 to be named as one of Wisden's five Cricketers of the Year. Fair play to him.

I'm taking the positives already.

Maiden Eagle 15-04-2021 05:01 PM

Good to see Surrey going well again. The might of Leicester have just lost their first wicket, having already scored 130 runs.

desperado 15-04-2021 07:00 PM

Surrey executing their skills better today especially pie thrower Matt Dunn

I switched on for 5 minutes today, watched him go for 3 x leg-side 4s in one over & switched off again...

A disapointing day for Kent as Yorkshire are 358-8. Yorkshire (particularly Lyth) started very well but Kent did get back into it before Yorkshire had some good partnerships later on in the day.

Weather permitting it's 100 overs tomorrow and 88 overs on Saturday.

I watch a Sky interview with Gould yesterday. Having been soundly beaten by Glocs the week before & with Leics 75-0 at lunch (now 240-3), he said we had had a 'slow start'.

He's a spin doctor & a shit one at that.

Olympian2 16-04-2021 01:03 PM

**** me, Mohammad Abbas has got 5-6 for Hants vs Middx this morning.....
