Interesting choice of Lammomby. Hope he goes well. Good to see Nabi in real stuff. Last time I saw him was under a bit of corrugated iron in the heat of Al Amerat in Oman. Really good eye for a batsman but not a man of great sublety. If it is there to hit he hits it!

..and he is Grockle. Need to get him out soon

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
Grockle 20 July, 2019 18:28
He will be a real pain if you don"t. The Afghans don't relate to worrying about things. Cricket balls are to be beaten to within an inch of their lives. Love 'em!

Sun stops play! What’s wrong with wearing sunglasses!

Excellent start by Lammonby - and now it's the wrong kind of sun.

Didn't expect him to bowl. Another option. I knew he did but it looks like he does it seriously as well
Waller doing what he does again.

RvdM is so clever when he's on form. Such a difficult man in this format.

11 dots. 3 for 19. Who needs to spin the thing? RvdM. Masterful

Not sure why Waller not bowled out. Lammonby maybe an over too many

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
hantssabre 20 July, 2019 19:31
166 to win. Gettable total but can we break our Kent away duck? Never beaten Kent away

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
Grockle 20 July, 2019 19:36
Bowlers oozing confidence. Not all of it justified but they kept to the task and kept taking wickets. You'd think this is short but we've been here before.

Don’t want to lose any early wickets

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!

We’ve got the ‘Traygo,’ rubbish now.

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
AGod 20 July, 2019 19:59
I’d bowl spin at Bants. He loves the fast men, IMO.

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
Grockle 20 July, 2019 20:00
Interesting diving technique from the veteran. They need to settle a little

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
AGod 20 July, 2019 20:07
Ouch. Might be uphill sledding now, with Bants gone.

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
Grizzers 20 July, 2019 20:08
Plenty of work for us to do in this game.

Meantime, Notts & Sussex have confirmed their players will be held to their T20 contracts re the 'Eurotrash' T20 potential clash of dates.

Seemingly no comment from SCCC yet.

As they should be. The idea of releasing players for that nonsense is absurd.

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
mikeindex 20 July, 2019 20:13
Just going by the scorecard, interesting that Lammonby got a full four overs when both twins and Max didn't, and others (Abell/Trego) didn't bowl at all.
I've never seen the young man play and know very little about him even by repute, and what I do know mainly concerns his batting - but clearly his bowling is considered a serious option even if success was fairly limited tonight.
Left-arm brisk medium, I gather? Possibly useful variation.

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
AGod 20 July, 2019 20:15
Hildreth gone too. I think this is going to be our umpteenth defeat in T20 at Canterbury.

I think somebody earlier may have said we’ve never won at Kent. Not true as I saw us win easily at Beckenham. But it probably is true that we’ve never won here.

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
hantssabre 20 July, 2019 20:15
Looking a tall order now Hildreth gone. Our batting looks a bit light

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
Grockle 20 July, 2019 20:16
Was a bit wide and variable but kept at it. So it's not going to be our game it seems. Couple if starts but we need a calming influence and Tom Lammomby is now facing that job with his skipper.

AGod 20 July, 2019 20:16
Swing bowler, primarily, as I understand it, Mikeindex. That’s what Meeks has previously said on the commentary, anyway.

Re: Blast. It's the Blast!
Rod1883 20 July, 2019 20:16
It was only his final over when he got hit around a bit - probably unwise to let him bowl that 4th with hindsight.
Looking like we may need his batting too.
