Thought I'd start a new thread for these. First match is Friday.

It seems Duckett and Vince can score centuries against second-class bowling. Good news for the England selectors - I seem to recall Wayne Larkins was good at that too.

Good to see Mitchell playing for Worcestershire. I was under the impression that the county had released him but perhaps it was just that he lost the captaincy at the end of last season.

I was going to be there on Friday people but circumstances have worked against that I'm afraid,

There is NOTHING in this part of the world about this game. No info on the Dubai stadium site today, no idea about tickets. It's all quiet in the Gulf.

LG three overs for 15 so far coming on as second change after the Surrey/Middx favoured ones

Why are they favoured counties somexile?

Somerset have 2 players in the squad, no more than anyone else but there are about 5 counties who haven't even got one player in the South squad. Are we favoured more than them. And if our 2 selected players are better than anyone else, then I despair.

Groenewald not selected; meanwhile it's clearly important to have a look at what Steven Finn might offer...

Surely all the players in this game earned their places because of graded performances in the 2016 season. They weren't selected for this game, they scored in their position and took the place on that basis didn't they?

Every player there is there on merit

I think only 4 players from the PCA's mvp rankings qualified plus the highest placed spinner in each of the North and South groups. The remainder of each squad chosen by the England selectors

Well at least on of our guys is there on merit. Though Lewis must have been close on performances if not having qualified by right

Both Lewis and Tim G qualified via the MVP rankings. The other South qualifiers were Liam Dawson and Matt Coles (later replaced by TRJ).

The North qualifiers were Ben Duckett, Tim Bresnan, Harry Gurney and Graeme White.

Tim gets a game today(probably 3 token overs), but Lewis needs to rest after bowling 3 whole overs on Friday.Hope he thinks the journey was worth it. I think he would probably get a lot more out of two decent spells at the county ground today.

Exactly! Meanwhile it's clearly critical that the selectors get another look at Finn, Curran, TRJ...

It is appropriate in this geographical series that the major innings today was played by Sam Northeast.

Lewis given another 3 overs today just six in total, while Tim misses out again.
So much for both been selected as 50 over specialists last year .Hardly worth the trip for both of them!!

Yep. It starts to question what the point of the games are if players get into the side by merit and are then not picked for any of the three games.

Not even nice in the UAE at the moment as we are getting the back end of tropical storms across the whole region.

Assuming the Dubai weather permits the two-day EmiratesT20 tournament starts tomorrow and can be watches on Prime TV (792 on Sky)

First match 10.30am local (6.30am GMT I think), then 2.15 (10.15 GMT) and 6.00 (2pm)

Thursday
Lancashire v Birmingham
Durham v Peshawar
Birmingham v Lahore

Friday
MCC XI v Durham/Lancashire v Lahore (both 10.30)
MCC v Peshawar
FINAL

Lewis Gregory, Craig Overton and Jack Leach are all in the MCC squad. We may be disappointed on Friday morning as I suspect it will be the Lancs v Lahore match that gets televised.

Big sandstorms and tropical backlashes here so you may not be lucky up the coast.

Leach, Gregory and Overton in action for the MCC v Peshawar right now Sky 792. Leach opened the bowling with a maiden.

MCC beat Durham in the earlier match; winner of this match plays Lancashire in this afternoon's final.
