But still local enough that he was in the Middlesex catchment area.

Indeed he was, Chunky, and was playing Minor Counties cricket for Bucks while still a schoolboy, which makes it even harder to understand why he slipped under the radar. My comment was just a private joke, as a Chesham man myself.

I was there on Saturday and enjoyed a very good day in all respects.

It was interesting to be accosted by the great commentator (?) Don Topley, who was handing out leaflets for his business. He was amiable to chat to for a few minutes and asked Mrs Seaxe and I who we were supporting. On saying that we were Middlesex supporters, so it was anyone but Surrey, he responded 'oh I'm exactly the same'!

Gurjit Sandhu making his first-year debut for Derbyshire today. Good luck, Gurjit.

His new team-mates include two spinners at opposite ends of their careers: Imran Tahir, whose been round the block a few times with numerous different teams, and Hamidullah Qadri, a 16-year-old Afghan refugee who bowled Derbyshire to their first win for yonks on his Championship debut last week.

It is great to see Gurjit Sandhu back in professional cricket. Whenever a player is released by Middlesex, I often think to myself that maybe a county such as Derbyshire or Leicestershire will give the player an opportunity, but it is rare that a player disappears then resurfaces.

It is appropriate that Derbyshire became the first county to field a player to be born in the 2000’s, as they were also the first to field a player born in the 1990’s in Dan Redfern.

A lot of people will be hopeful that batting conditions at Cheltenham for Friday’s Twenty20 opener between Gloucestershire and Middlesex will be easier than it was for Glos v Glamorgan. If Glos are deducted points, they would become the third team in division two to lose points (albeit in different circumstances to Durham and Leicestershire), and it be the second time they would have been penalised for a poor pitch at Cheltenham after an incident in 2013.

In my book Kent should be docked points for a pitch that produces 431-1

In its own way it's every bit as bad as a pitch that produces 25 wickets.

Won't happen though.

As should Essex for producing a pitch which generated 542-3.

Except...

The pitch at Cheltenham clearly improved, as Glamorgan took their overnight score from 59-5 to 158 all out, and Gloucestershire achieved their target of 135 without losing a wicket, although the match nonetheless finished inside two days as looked certain.

Both Northamptonshire and Surrey are only one wicket down in response to massive scores by their opponents, so the main excitement in those matches seems to be the run-scoring feats. A lot of neutrals were willing Sean Dickson to record the highest score in Kent’s history, but Max Holden dismissed him for 318, which was 14 short of Bill Ashdown’s record from 1934. Ashdown also had a score of 302 not out, which meant he had scored the only two treble hundreds in Kent’s history before today.

And now a hundred for Adam Rossington.

Northants currently 491-4 in reply to Kent 701-7 dec.

And Kent only lost 7 wickets because they were accelerating for a declaration.

If anybody did the stats for matches where first innings batting scores were 500,600 or 700 most of those matches would have been drawn. I am not a lover of those big scores 450ish max.

You could not make it up.

The Corridor is now having a go at the White Rose Forum as YCCC haters. Their main poster lists all the reasons and remedies given by WRF posters and suggests that some have got their prescriptions from pre-war Germany or the Soviet Union.

What he overlooks is that for pretty much every reason or remedy there is someone else saying that is wrong. In other words, it is a proper discussion forum where a wide range of views is given and tolerated, the precise opposite of the Corridor (and indeed of Soviet democratic centralism!).

I thought one or two posters on the Corridor also posted on WRF, as content and style looked similar. If that was so once, it may no longer be the case, given the decline in posters on the Corridor.

Reminds me a bit of the club pulling itself to pieces in the Boycott/Close/Hutton era. Perhaps it's a Yorkshire speciality.

As per normal, all comments on WRF are fair and measured. As per normal, Corridor of Xenophobia's one remaining poster starts bringing n*zi Germany in to things, for no obvious reason.

Yes, there were several people who used to post on both. The reasonable ones deserted Corridor of Xenophobia months ago, leaving Rick Thunder (now back as Manvers Main) and Donnylad to it.

It is great news that Nottinghamshire’s Luke Fletcher seems to be doing well after a shot hit him on the head v Warwickshire at Edgbaston last night. Jake Ball last night Tweeted a photo of Fletcher sitting up in an ambulance, while Fletcher sent a few Tweets this morning. I wasn’t watching the match when the incident happened, and unsurprisingly Sky are not going to show any replays, although the reaction of the players brought back memories of past horrific incidents on sportsfields.

I doubt Notts’ supporters will be particularly happy at their fixturelist, as it is arguably the peak of summer, yet they don’t play again until Friday 21st July. Admittedly, their matches come thick and fast after that, although that isn’t the best of news considering they won’t get much rest time.

The ‘played’ column of the Twenty20 group stage tables are likely to be unbalanced for much of the competition. Four counties (including Notts) have already played two matches, while four counties will be opening their campaign this afternoon.
