Sam Curran and Ollie Pope have been released from the England squad at Headingley to return to Surrey for this week`s T20 matches against Somerset and Essex at The Oval.

Somerset name the same 14-man squad for tomorrow - the 11 who defeated Glamorgan, plus George Bartlett, Dom Bess and Ollie Sale.

The weather looks great, I’m 40mins away, but I just can’t face another midweek T20 at the Oval. To anyone who’s going, if you’re unlucky enough to be stuck behind a group who aren’t remotely interested in anything over than drinking & getting up mid over, or worse, giving abuse to their own players let alone ours, it shouldn’t be an issue changing seats to another area or even stand as we ended up doing that last time for the 2nd innings

I'm only 25 mins away and shall not attend this evening, for the same reasons as brt1919. Richard Gould will presumably note that the ground is full of people spending lots of money on booze and won't miss me, even though - unlike the boozers - I might have been interested in the actual cricket.

Well I'm only about 30 miles away, and not only will I not attend largely due to my distinctly unenjoyable T20 experience there a few years ago but also because (NB LoL) I'll be on a golf course...

First thing I'll do when I come off the 18th green will of course be to look up the score/result 😉

I thought you were based in Swindon, SP?

Has it moved?

I could go there, straight after work, and it would take me, perhaps 45 minutes to get there. However, I have no desire to spend my evening with Chelsea Tractor driving, Hooray Henrys, quaffing champagne and standing with their backs to their games, whilst boring all and sundry with their tedious "patter."

Re: Oval ball game
Loyal of Lhasa 27 August, 2019 10:05
Sorry to hear your sad news, SP, but I must admit that your golf course will be a more congenial place than The Oval later today.

I wonder if there is a way of drawing Richard Gould's attention to this thread - and we could then also mention that we have a vacancy for a CEO.

Worked in Swindon till 2015, AG - I live near Reading.

Paul, when you come off the 18th., head straight for the 19th. and have a stiff one before looking up the score / result.

You may need it to celebrate.

Hell's Bells, I really don't think I am well today.

A glass half - empty or a glass half - full?
Regardless, both glasses need filling up.

While I realise that asking this question clearly makes me a lesser mortal, but is there any way to watch the game? The tickets are sold out and it looks like the Birmingham/Durham game is on Sky.

The official SomersetCCC site has a link labelled Match Centre. If you click on that, you will find (once the match is about to start) a live stream on the left of the screen.

Re: Oval ball game
AGod 27 August, 2019 11:03
Ah! I see, SP.

I think it would need an awful lot to persuade Gouldy back, LoL. Perhaps we can find out what his fave tipple is, have a whip round, and ensure a lifetime’s supply a la Leachy’s glasses. Gould has refused to kow-tow to Graves which makes him a star in my book.

As for tonight? I think I’m right in saying that we have a decent 50 over record at the Oval, but a dodgy T20 one... so time to reverse some history.

And if there’s a track on which we really should be looking to bring Dom in? It would, usually, be the Oval. Perhaps a rest for Cove would be a good idea, with another CC game coming up?

Re: Oval ball game
Loyal of Lhasa 27 August, 2019 11:37
I would certainly welcome the inclusion of Bess, with a rest for Cove or - is this a heresy - the omission of RvdM.

Considering history, LoL, I can only think the omission of RvdM would cause much celebration in the Surrey camp.

Assume that Somerset will have a link to the live stream, otherwise Surrey website states that the live stream will be available on kiaoval.com.

Can’t even sort the live stream out. What a bunch of amateurs Surrey are!

Sky chosen the wrong match to broadcast, they are off for rain Birmingham 62 for 1 after 7

Its attaking T20, it can go that way.

Seems Surrey are blaming Youtube for no live stream.

Surely there is a time to attack and a time to be a bit more circumspect. In danger of not batting out the overs at this rate

Re: Oval ball game
AGod 27 August, 2019 18:44
Predictably, it’s a spin-friendly track. I stand by my earlier suggestion, that we should have included Dom as part of a 3 spinner attack.

Re: Oval ball game

Re: Oval ball game

We are likely to prove 10-12 runs short of a winning total, IMO.
