Surrey at Home Sunday

I'm trying to be respectful to our neighbours by not using any alternative names.

For now will say this is a must win game and concerned who is actually going to be fit for this one.

We're not exactly in a position to be disrespectful to them at the moment.

Not fully fit,but will be there on Sunday for this game.
Meeting up with our great friend Diamonds daughter Elle for this game,she is spending the day with us and hoping to introduce her to a few of Diamonds friends along the way.
Could be emotional at times,and hope she enjoys the game and day.
Wondering how many advance tickets were sold with Kholi going to play before injury hit him?
Need a good strong performance on Sunday against them.

Although their losing by 220 runs to Kent makes it very tempting.

The weather forecast for this match seems very good, so unless this match ends in a tie or sees a crossbow fired, one of the two teams will lose this match and thus leave themselves with little or no chance of qualifying for the knockout stages of this competition. To be on the safe side, Middlesex will certainly be keen to win their final two group matches.

With Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan unavailable, the last thing we need would be Paul Stirling missing out. If Stirlo can’t play, personally I would like Robbie White or George Scott to come in, although Sam Robson may be considered. Hilton Cartwright’s fitness is also uncertain, which could create another route in the side for Scott considering they are similar players. Jameses Fuller and Harris are capable of scoring runs, although selecting either player over Cartwright could be seen as weakening our batting (although some may disagree with that!). We have only selected 13 players so far in this competition, so we seem reluctant to make changes to our line-up unless when necessary.

The margin of Surrey’s defeat v Kent at Beckenham today was a surprise, and I am certain they will be keen to atone for it on Sunday. The quality of their side means they shouldn’t be underestimated. After England discarded Mark Stoneman and selected Sam Curran, Surrey will have Stoneman available but not Sam Curran.

It would have been a boost for county cricket had Virat Kohli been able to play for Surrey, although admittedly that boost would have probably disappeared once his short spell had ended. Had he played, it would have been interesting to have observed the atmosphere in the matches he played, as quite a few of those in attendance would have gone solely to see him bat, which may have meant that these spectators would have walked out once Kohli had been dismissed. I wonder how may many of those who had purchased tickets on the basis that Kohli will play will still attend.

Richard Goatley, Angus Fraser, David Kendix, Richard Scott, Steven Finn and John Simpson will be at the top table at the mid-season forum, which will take place in the Thomas Lord Suite. I had forgotten about this event, so I appreciate the reminder, as it allowed me to tell my mum that I won’t be back until late after the match, which isn’t ideal. Considering we were still in May until yesterday, it feels too early to be talking about it being mid-season, although of course more than a third of our County Championship campaign and seven of our eight Royal London Cup group matches will have been played by the time of the forum.

I guess the forum will go one of two ways.

Beat Surrey tomorrow, and we have beaten our rival, and can still qualify for the 'quarter final' (even though there are only two matches, leading to semi-finals against the group leaders).

Lose, and we are almost certainly out of the competition, and I imagine the top table will come under a fair bit of criticism.

This promises to be an exciting match with hopefully a good attendance.

It is great to see that Eoin Morgan may be able to play despite it initially been feared he would have to miss a few matches. It is also great that Paul Stirling has been included, as has everyone who has participated in our Royal London Cup campaign so far other than Tom Barber. As I anticipated, George Scott is close to the side. However, James Fuller is not in the squad.

Surrey have named a 14-man squad for this match consisting of Rory Burns (captain), Gareth Batty, Scott Borthwick, Rikki Clarke, Tom Curran, Jade Dernbach, Ben Foakes, Will Jacks, Morne Morkel, Mat Pillans, Ollie Pope, Jason Roy, Mark Stoneman and Freddie van den Bergh.

The pitch for this match will be on the Tavern side, although it will be more central than most non-televised matches that take place at Lord’s.

A minute's silence will take place at 4:30pm in memory of the victims of last year’s London Bridge and Borough Market attack. However, I don’t know whether it will be observed at Lord’s (whether that be at 4:30pm or before either of the two innings), as the silence doesn’t seem to have been well-publicised.

Currently watching a re run of Scotland losing 1-0 to the Mexicans in a World Cup warm up for the team south of the border.
Hope it's not a double defeat for my teams today.

Looking forward to the report of the forum (the bits that can be reported).

I imagine the natives are restless.

Let's not worry about the forum on this thread,as I'm sure it will be reported elsewhere,if allowed.
Focus on today's Paul Stirling batting,and not much else.

Glamorgan beat The Mexicans
Hampshire beat Somerset
Kent beat Essex by quite a few.
We beat Gloucestershire handsomely.

Then we finish 3rd.
I think.

Having just returned to Ealing after a couple of beers on the way home it has to be said the game was not a classic.
From the moment Gubbin's departed for a duck the game was beyond us.
It wasn't the fact we went into the game with only 4 specialist batsmen/Patel's dropped catch/Stimmo's missed stumping/Finn's rush of blood to the head by gifting Surrey 12 runs by letting Cartwright bowl one over/the 20 minute queue to buy a £6 pint of lager nor the fact there was no hot food available during the interval.
The fact is the current squad we have with the exception of 2 spinners and one batsman are not up to it - not good enough to qualify for the 50 over cup or the 20/20 finals and do not have a hope of getting us out of Division 2.
Somewhere along the line starting at the top there has to be a complete rethink.
