Are Surrey now bottom of this new league? We have a game against Essex coming up. Is Olympian taking his 27 mates ? If so I have got 6 guest vouchers he or anyone can have. There will probably be plenty knocking around.

LOL, thanks mate! The '27 mates' outing is normally for a T20 game.

I will be there on Monday with 3 or 4 mates but I've got enough Guest Vouchers to cover them, cheers. It'll be my last visit t'Oval this year. We'll probably shuffle around the Pavilion/Peter May stand/Laker Balcony/Lock Balcony watching Alistair Cook bat all day which, even for a Surrey fan, won't be the worst thing in the world.

I'm going to the Oval on Sunday. Will be somewhat relaxing, merely getting my plastic card scanned at the entrance.

:D

I'm planning to take a bottle of fizz in on Monday, despite the 'no glass bottles' policy. Stewards didn't check at the last CC (or it might have been an RLC) game....

I think you'd need to be lugging a crate of beer in before they became concerned.

Surrey V Essex - Johnny Tattersall, wicket keeper on loan from Yorkshire for Surrey. Not sure the issue with Jamie Smith is.

Smith is out with a shoulder injury. Not sure why Pope canít keep, heís done so in a Test match before.

Burns has been rested by the ECB. The ECB were obviously happy for him to play a 5 day game but now thatís been cancelled, he obviously canít play a 4 day game.

If anyone had any doubt how incredibly ****ed up & stupid the ECB are, thatís it in a nutshell.

Probably because he had only recently returned from multiple shoulder injuries?

Jeez, that is fecking absurd.

I assume Burns will be going to the Ashes and because he won't be in the T20 WC and because I'm assuming no warm up matches cos of covid, he should be playing as many competitive matches as possible, to prepare him for Stark and Co in OZ.

Quite possibly. Or maybe the ECB are 'resting' Ollie's gloves.... :p

Well you were right about Cook batting all day. Don't forget the Pomagne.

Besides the keeper, only Amla and Pope didn't have a go at getting him out.

Sums up the season

0-2 in reply. We've adopted the Aussie way round of the score, yes?

NRM the 2nd 13-09-2021 03:13 PM

Wonder if cook will come out of retirement and open for England again. Went along yesterday and was nice to see him make 100 seeing last time i saw him there was his last match against India

The forecast for tomorrow suggests Stewart's dawn rain dance may have worked.

Cricket aside, itís lovely & sunny up on the Laker Balcony :p

Wolfnipplechips 13-09-2021 03:47 PM

Is it time for Stewart to go?

We’ve been dreadful in all formats for a couple of years now.

Was there this afternoon. Another poor show. Jordan Clarke thinks it was the 100. Amla different class. Never looked in trouble.
My mate went out on a food hunt about 2.15. The only thing he found was bloody pizza. Settle for nuts and crisps. Sat in mid tier of pavilion. Good weather

Yeah, one of our party had the same problem. I nearly offered her some of my bloody marvellous home-made prawn curry & rice.

There was a definite end of term feel from Surrey today, both on & off the field.

What’s the point of the games Kent are now playing and winning? Is it just going through the motions? Is anything at stake?
