When the Aussies were number one in the world their game plan was to bat once and bat big

Mind you they had an attack that could always take twenty wickets

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.

Well done, Surrey- pretty unexpected on the basis of previous results- apparently the first time Roach has bagged an 8 for.

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.

Kemar Roach 8 for 40. Watched a few overs on the You Tube channel a performance that deserved to have spectators there to see it

Superb Surrey impression from Hampshire. But do we care?!

Norwich_Eagle 01-05-2021 09:25 PM

We certainly do. For now...

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:

I literally just turned on the stream to see Yorks take the final wicket & win by 1 run!

Olympian2 06-05-2021 01:25 PM

LOL - the madness continues. Sussex 21-6 vs Northants.

Maiden Eagle 06-05-2021 04:52 PM

Oh well, good to see Surrey back to normal:eek:

Wickets tumbling everywhere - 3 teams all out before Tea, on the first day

Except at Grace Rd, Leicester

Leics 188 - 1

And we wonder why we cant produce test match batsmen. Starting the County Championship in early April, 9 degrees and a chance of snow. Ridiculous!

Well, we have to squeeze the T20 & The Hundred in the summer somewhere.... :wallbash::wallbash:

How much are Surrey paying Jamie Overton?
So far he has 1/347 for them in 1st class games and 1/173 in T20s.
