On to the Sophia SWALEC Gardens ghost town for our second T20 of the week. After yesterday, the second capital of the away tourand hopefully anither good performance and some nice points?

I'm not sure there can be many team changes unless Tim is available which I believe is unlikely with Worcestershire at New Road in the CC1 om Sunday So, same side? Possibly in the same order if it goes to plan and our initiative and flexibility on show if it doesn't.

Are we learning this game or not? Watch this space.

Hope a crowd turns up. What's the weather report like?

I am wondering whether Hildreth is in need of a rest - he has played in every competitive match so far this season. Perhaps they might give Banton a go.

Remember: the match is being played at Suppiah Gardens and history cannot allow us to lose there.

LoL do you feel Hildreth is a little burned out? but the squad has only played 4 x 3 hour T20's in the last 23 days I think.

But not disputing maybe Banton should be given a opportunity at some point, but he (Banton) is not named in the squad for tonight's match.

Head Coach, Jason Kerr will pick the starting XI from the following squad: Tom Abell, Corey Anderson, Josh Davey, Steve Davies, Lewis Gregory (c), James Hildreth, Johann Myburgh, Craig Overton, Jamie Overton, Peter Trego, Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meekeren, Max Waller.

Glamorgan could give a debut to Joe Burns and have named the following squad: Colin Ingram (c), Joe Burns, Kiran Carlson, Usman Khawaja, Aneurin Donald, Andrew Salter, Chris Cooke, Craig Meschede, Graham Wagg, Jeremy Lawlor, Ruaidhri Smith, Timm van der Gugten, Michael Hogan.

I am the greatest Hildreth fan in the world and would be happy if he were to play in every Somerset match for the rest of my life (when not playing for England), but I mentioned the word "jittery" in connection with an innings of his some days ago and since then he has barely scored a run. The level of expectation we place on England's finest middle order batsman may for the moment be proving a little too much for him.

Looking after 4 overs as if something truly exceptional is needed.

100 T20 wickets for Max Waller.

12.5 an over needed, two overs under that and the rate will rise.

17 overs of spin at 6 and over and 9 wickets in the last two matches. I think at last were beginning to learn this game.

Commentators were advocating picking Dom as a third spinner, not sure how his loopy spin would go down in T20 after seeing his appearance in the 50 over stuff. Anyway who should Jerome replace?

That bloke called LoL either knows nothing or is employed vy SCCC as a secret motivator. I suspect the former.

Waller is like an overseas player for us these days. Donā€™t see him most of the season, but come T20 he comes in with some terrific fielding & his bowling on the whole is surely as good as most overseas stars you could get for the competition?

What a 24 hours that was!
Lewis & Jerome sign.
Stuff Middlesex at Lords.
Hammer Glammy at Swalec for first time since 2011!

Corey was brutal.tonight, just what we need in that middle order.
Hildy as usual just proving his quality.
Both a pleasure to witness in full flow.

Bowling was excellent also (skipper apart!)
Craig had 2-31 but trego let 1 through him turning 0 into 4. And 2 wild hoiks edged for 4 through 3rd slip so could easily have been even better.

A normal minimal number of postings and notable absences following another excellent win, long may that continue.....

Roll on Sunday and a return to some proper cricket.

Team selection now becomes interesting. If we replace a like bowler the logical one is Lewis and that won't happen. Craig's figures don't do his bowling justice;Jamie's got his act together. We must keep the slow men with the bonus of Myburgh.Just the right sort of problem to have.

Yes, that is indeed the obvious one, given that his last 36 balls have gone for something like 76 runs - more than 2 runs per ball! A very poor record over the two most recent games. Craig O also got thumped at Lord's, but came back well yesterday.

I imagine that Jamie will be left out instead.

I'm not entirely certain that we will go two spinners for all of our home games (although we should).

The Waller/VDM tandem has worked out nicely in the most recent games.

If there's one track in the country, where teams probably win often batting first, it probably is Sophia Gardens. Corey Anderson is working out well at the moment and, touch wood, staying fit.

Working out well?

I should say so!

192 runs at average of 64 AND a 175 strike rate from 5 matches.

16 x 4 and 12 x 6.

Statistics never lie.......

Interesting to note who is our most economical quick bowler (1 Tom over apart)
Happens to have the highest batting strike rate too, tic!

So from that only 1 option for next Friday, Jerome IN Lewis OUT.

In seriousness every chance Jerome could replace Tom.
Shifting Corey 5 Lewis 6 RVDM 7 Craig 8 Jamie 9 would not worry me one bit.
Gives us 6 front line bowlers then plus Tregs & Myby.

Personally I think it could be either one of Overtons or Trego to drop out.

If Trego loses out then Corey comes in at 3 as an option. Corey should be higher in the batting order whoever misses out IMHO. Certainly a bit of flexibility in the batting order seems needed at times.
Tom has improved with the ball this season and can be used as needed, and is our second best fielder to Max, so I hope he keeps his place.

Saying that, you could be right WSM, as you are able to pick up plenty of insider info.

Do not disagree with much there Roger.
Its good that we will now have real choice.
Trego Tom Lewis Craig Jamie or anyone shouldnt have a 100% right to play every game.

Added to last nights 11 we should now have Jerome Josh Tim Dom & Tom B all with a hope to play. Plus maybe even Meeks too.

Fielding i also agree is key and our best 4 fielders by a distance are Max Tom Craig & Jamie.
Its hard to put a value on the buzz, energy & good feeling a top stop or outstanding catch gives the team.
And conversely the effects of drops and simple mistakes.
