Gutted for Tom, but what a knock, pure class. Time to put them to the sword.

Allenby failed to justify his selection again, I'm afraid.

A poor choice for this XI.

Since he's obviously leaving anyway and isn't up to CC1 standards with the bat anyway, I fail to see any sensible purpose in persisting with him, I'm afraid.

I hope Cove is able to explode on Surrey, hit them all over the park.

Just what does Jim Allenby bring to the side?
Mybs should be playing in his place.
(JA will take 5 wickets now in the Surrey 1st innings)

But he couldn't.

Hope SD gets his ton and then, quite frankly, I wouldn't mind cracking on with trying to get all three bowling bonus points.

Won't be easy, probably, with reportedly naff all turn from the deck and only two frontline seamers in the team, but you never know .. if Cove bowls like he did at Scarborough (albeit on far, far slower track), Timmy G shows his experience and Surrey panic a bit..

Bit of a collapse now then.
Come on - let's get at least the third batting point

Absolutely right, Rod.

I'd have picked Mybs at number three for this one.

Sadly, the chances of JA taking five wickets are , well....

The best we can hope for is that he *might* be able to tie down an end.

That's what he brings - some bowling that is usually economical, but it's not enough to merit a place given absence of batting performance and absence of bowling penetration.

Maynard will have to drop him all over again.

Highest first innings total of the whole summer, now (at 274)

Which rather speaks volumes...

IN case we hear to the contrary, I note the words of the commentators:

"The whole SCCC team is on the balcony applauding."

You are my Davies,
My Steven Davies,
You make me happy,
When skies are grey,
So keep your Clarke,
And Nora Batty,
But Please don't take my Davies away...

Bravo Steve Davies.
Pouring down in Wellington now and moving steadily East, I fear...

Forecasts seem to claim otherwise but, as ever, we shall see..

Well done Steve. Glorious weather in Bicknoller after I took the forecast at its word. I'll sort a lottle of the ego and pettiness of last night today if possible ( still have not received any kind of official complaint about any poster - maybe it is simply because I wasn't involved who knows).

I may split the thread for those using the mobile version as it has got a little long for phone memory.

Grockle = you know how it goes, lots of smoke, fury and indignation, but almost never any willingness to actually take any official action (on the part of posters, I mean, not on your part).

Anyway, loving Dom's work here - superb.

The much bally-hooed Currans?

0-150 at about 4.7 runs per over...............

All in front of England selector, Mick Newell (or at least he was there yesterday)

But, as they play for Surrey...........

357-7 off 94 at lunch.
Can we get max batting points?
Can Dom get his 50, SD his 150?

They really should turn the radio commentary microphone off or down during these intervals. I've just heard every word of an ostensibly private conversation between three gentlemen who I imagine would have much preferred it if their private thoughts and opinions had not been broadcast to all and sundry. Had to turn the volume up a bit, but every word...

If these two stay together, then we surely will get maximum batting points.

If not, maybe Timmy G will come out to slap a quick 20 or so to help us up there?

It would be great to be able to declare at 400-7 or 400-8 and thus denying Surrey a bowling point.

Before anyone mentions it, yes, we can declare provided that the *only* reason isn't to deny them a bowling bonus point. It wouldn't be - the point would be to get on with trying to get our bowling bonus points won, in view of a poor forecast for tomorrow and, indeed, to progress a game that we really need to win.
